RemARKably Creative July Blog Hop!

Welcome to our July RemARKably Creative Blog Hop. This month we are featuring "Anything New & Current". I just know you are going to receive some fabulous inspiration by visiting all of us that are participating in the blog hop!

This is the card that I created for you today. I've been experimenting with the Embossing Paste for an Online Class I will be hosting so I thought I would also use the paste for my card:

Did you notice the color of my bricks? I colored the Embossing Paste using the Soft Suede Ink Refill. I'll show you how if you keep reading. I also used the Coffee Cafe Bundle for my stamped and die-cut images and the Coffee Break Designer Paper.

I even used a Window Sheet cut in the shape of the top of the cup to make a clear dome. It's hard to capture in the photo. It makes the topper look so realistic. Now are you ready to learn how to color the Embossing Paste?

Step 1: Using a Silicone Mat, add a clump of the Embossing Paste. TIP: Make sure you screw the cover on the jar right away so the paste on the inside doesn't dry up. Add a few drops of the Soft Suede Ink Refill to the paste:

Step 2: Mix with the Palette Knife until the ink refill is evenly distributed:

Step 3: Place the mask over the cardstock, spread the paste over the mask and lift the mask to reveal the colored brick:

TIP: Rinse/wash your mask immediately as this paste dries quickly. I rinse mine using the water from my faucet and use my fingers to dissolve the paste.
