Welcome to our Paste-fully Creative - CTMH Technique Blog Hop. This month we are incorporating our new pastes and coordinating products to texturize our artwork. This is an International blog hop group and I am in Australia, with lots of my sister consultants in this blog hop in the US and Canada.  If you have arrived here from Tamara Sandwisch then you are in the right place. If you landed here another way, please join in by following the link at the end of this post. Follow the links, check out all the amazing ideas for using texture in your artworks and eventually you'll come right back here to where you started.

The first thing I did was grabbed out my Opaque Matte Texture PastePalette Knives and All-Purpose MatThen I grabbed out the cut out from the Thin Cuts—Shaker Window & Confetti with the heart cut outs that I'd made confetti with before. I used it as a template for my Texture paste. I used the Opaque Matte Texture Paste (White) on top of the Sugarplum CardstockI used the paper cut out circle a few times with the texture paste. It wasn't cut with the stencil so it will be thrown out afterwards, paper can be used as templates but it isn't reusable. I left my hearts pretty thick with texture paste before I removed the template, so it is more textured.

I hadn't gotten out my circut to cut some templates in the stencil so I just cut some holes with a standard single punch hole punch. I used the Opaque Matte Texture Paste onto the Boutique picture my life card (see below).

This month there is a limited time special on the Ribbon Warrior Stamp + Thin Cuts
For Cancer Awareness Month. So I used them to finish my cards.

To finish off my sugar plum card, I put a the Boutique Peacock paper to the left hand side of the card and the Sugarplum with texture paste on 3D foam tape and the survivor circle in 3D. I stamped in Sugarplum and black Ink. The Mink Twine was wrapped around the card with the  Base & Bling Ribbon Charm—Faux Gold (these are in the Clearance section of our websites and match the Ribbon Warrior stamp set perfectly). The charm could be taken off and put on a necklace or bracelet after the card has been given.

 I finished the PML card off with the the sticker from the Boutique Complements that I stamped Hope, Courage, Hero and Friends on in Black in. Then I wrapped the card in the Mink Twine with the  Base & Bling Ribbon Charm—Faux Gold tied to it. Put it up on 3D foam tape and put the spotty paper from the Boutique Paper Packet
Got some shadow on the photo.
