Embossed Texture Paste with Color Burst - tutorial


Hello again, my Scrappy Friends!

While I was creating last night for the challenge this week over at Use Your Stuff, I started with one idea and then decided that I didn't like it.  Does that happen to anyone else?...lol  I am sure it is common among us Scrappers!

Well, after a bit of sleep and some daylight, I looked again at the panel I had created.  I was Re-Inspired!  I really do love Ken Oliver's Color Burst Powders!!

I love the bubble effect you get when you heat set your embossing powder on the texture paste.  The panel is triple mounted (on black, then gold and Hollyhock by CTMH.  Then I added some sheer green ribbon.  The sentiment is also from a retired CTMH set.


When I started with this last night, I took pictures along the process.


Apply the Ranger Texture paste with a spatula over the stencil.


You can see the raised embossing paste once you remove the stencil.  Sprinkle gold embossing powder over the wet embossing paste.

Heat set with your heat tool.  I am so excited to finally have the Ranger heat tool... I LOVE it!  Once it is all shiny, and no longer powdery looking, it is done.

I started with a bit of water, then sprinkled the Color Burst around the panel.  Then I added some more water.  I continued this process, letting it dry a bit between the sprinkle and spraying until I was satisfied with the result.

Fushia, Chartreuse, UltraMarine Blue and Lime Green Color Burst powders were used.  On the inside, I stenciled with Worn Lipstick and Mustard Seed Distress Inks.

I hope you like it and are inspired to play along: Use Your Stuff


  1. How cool is THIS - now I have another idea on how to use my new Color Bursts! Gail (from USE YOUR STUFF)

  2. This is really beautiful Tammy. I wondered if this technique would work. I have been wanting to try this since I bought my embossing paste but I need some stencils....on my wish list....


Thank you for taking the time to leave your thoughts!
