Happy Sunday to you all! It’s Shari here with a DIY project that helps me feel a little better about my addiction to cold coffee drinks! To start off, I’ve added layers of book text in all directions to cover the entire bottle.
Then to diffuse and to create texture, I’ve added wrinkled up tissue paper. I’ve used my twine to wrap the top of the bottle which gives it a finished edge.
And finally I used some Prima Flowers to decorate. I have a video for you of the process below or you can view it on our YouTube channel.

Hi everyone and Happy Sunday! It’s Shari here with a look at some embossing pastes that are more of the specialty variety. These are shiny, matte, shimmery and some are clear!
I’ve decided to work with the same card stock (Slate) and stencil so you can clearly see the comparisons.
I’m starting off with Ranger’s transparent matte Texture Paste. This was the first time I’ve used it. Once it dried, I was really impressed with the look. I’ve always liked flat or matte paints but didn’t expect this to look like I had used an embossing folder. One of my new favorite pastes for sure!
Next up is the same paste but I’ve used Rock Candy Glitter on top while it was still wet. You can use any clear paste with the glitter, but used this one out of convenience. This has a beautiful sparkle to it and would be a fantastic texture to use for snowflakes on Winter cards.
My next selection is the Wendy Vecchi Black Embossing paste. The effect looks like stamped velvet to me. One of the things I noticed about this paste is how concentrated and true the black is which is perfect for an elegant, formal look. It’s also a nice compliment to the slate card stock.
Now for the shiny pastes. This is the Wendy Vecchi Translucent paste. It starts out white and dries to a super shiny clear. This is a great paste to use on any color card stock! You could also use this paste with glitter and embossing powders (let paste dry before heat setting embossing powders). Also note that Ranger’s Transparent Gloss is very similar.
