CAS Mix Up Card Challenge - thanks a million

I bought a jar of texture paste a long time ago, and never used it. I was inspired by all the beautiful cards at CAS Mix Up Card Challenge, and I thought it was time to open my jar and try it.
Here's my card:



It was really fun to use the paste with a stencil!
I sponged disterss ink over the pattern.





I used stamping, sponging, texture paste, stencil, heat-embossing, and die-cut.
I'm ready to try this again with a different stencil! 😊

  


Stamp: Word Play (Stampin' up!)
Paper: Whisper White, Vellum (Stampin' Up!)
Ink: VersaMark (Tsukineko), Distress Ink (Pine Needle, Lucky Clover - Ranger)
Accessories: Seasonal Decorative Masks, Silver Cording Trim (Stampin' Up!), Texture Paste (Opaque Matte - Ranger), Die-namics Stitched Rectangle STAX (My Favorite Things), Embossing Powder (White - Hero Arts), Thin 3D Foam Squares (3L)

Thanks for stopping by!

    1. Thanks for your kind words, Nancy! Yes, the background was a little bit busy, so I wanted to make the sentiment CAS. I'm so glad I tried using embossing paste, thanks to this challenge!

    1. Thanks so much, Bonnie! Stenciling with texture paste worked pretty well as a first time. I want to play with it changing the thickness of the paste next time. :-)
