Fluffy Clouds and Flying Pigs

My Stampin' Up! order came on Friday afternoon and I was able to play with the Embossing Paste.  This stuff is so cool to use.  One of the masks is clouds, so I immediately thought of the flying pig and here she is!

Pink Pirouette 8 1/2" x 5 1/2", scored and folded at 4 1/4"
Basic Black - 5 1/8" x 3 7/8"
Soft Sky - 5" x 3 3/4"

I only wanted a few clouds on the front of the card, so to make it easier to keep from getting paste where I didn't want it, I used some old washi tape over the openings I didn't want.  Works like a charm!

When you lift the mask up and off, do so carefully and you'll have a perfect shape left behind.  

*** Something to remember is this stuff dries pretty quickly, so you will want to immediately put your mask into a pan or bowl of water so it doesn't dry before you can wipe it off. 

Thank you for looking in today!  Thank goodness it's Saturday!  Why is it a short work week (I took off Monday and Tuesday was a Holiday) of three days seems to drag on forever!?

Enjoy the day!

  1. Fun card. I have not ordered or played with this paste stuff but it looks great with the clouds. Some day I will get some and play with it especially for clouds. Is there any other tips for using this stuff? Such a happy little pig! I have not inked up this certain stamp yet.

    1. It's fun to play with and I've only used it a couple of times so far. No other tips yet, but as I discover them, I'll be sure to share!

      What do you mean you haven't inked up the pigs??? OH NO, get the ink out and play! Happy Weekend!

  2. Oh I have inked up the sitting pig and the pig skipping with the flower and have made 8-10 cards with those two stamps. The other two stamps- the flying angel pig and the fourth are still waiting their turns! I used the skipping happy pig for the (4th one) holding balloons and had an enamel party hat on.

    Mike is getting ready to go to a conference at Ft. Knox tomorrow and he is driving me crazy. He doesn't want to go either which that does not help.


    1. Oh good, I couldn't imagine not inking up those piggies. I forgot you did the tic-tac-toe thing. Your card is very cute!

      Hubby's are good at driving us crazy. LOL
