Embossing Paper Grouting Technique

Hi crafters!  Today's video shows one of the techniques that I came up with recently which I call embossed paper grouting.  I have used this technique numerous times as I always love the end result!

 The finished dimensions are 7 1/2" x  8 1/2" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Having seen this about with various products, the Cosmic Shimmer pastes you use look the most effective.

Morning Sue
What an elegant gift so just right for Golden Wedding Anniv or any other special occasion. I can just see those smiles as the envelope is opened.
Gold/White is always a beautiful combination and the Grouting just shows your Efolder to perfection.
Thank you for the tip re rippled card. I've stored that away for future use.

Don't know what today will bring. At the moment it looks as though it's going to be another dry day so perhaps some supervising in the garden!

To all in pain and suffering I hope your day gets better. To everyone please take care and stay safe. See you tomorrow.

Thank you very much for another great video tutorial, I love the effect of the paper grouting and on this card it looks so beautifully lacy and ornate.x

crossstitchmarg said...

Good Morning Sue
I love this card and the grouting technique looks good. I am hoping to have a go today at this technique I haven't got the same embossing folder so am hoping it will come out ok. I also want to try using a stencil. Similar to one you have used. Wish me luck I might end up in a big mess lol. But that's what crafting is all about.
I've tried to buy some of your stamps that go with the poinsettia die but haven't had any luck all sold out, so yesterday ended up buying filigree poinsettia set of dies.
While I was at it I got the configuration die you used on Tuesday's card. I want to have a go at the card you made.
So fingers crossed for me I don't get disturbed i am having a craft day today and the phone is getting switched off.

Happy Crafting

marg said...

Hello Sue!
I had a go at the Configuration card you did in Tuesday, and it turned out beautifully!
I used some Anna Griffin Glitter card, instead of the sticky paper and sparkle!
Almost the same, but thanks for the inspiration to try!
I have not watched the Video yet but I'm sure there will be more inspiration!
Take care
Love Marg

Steph Cotterill said...

Hi Sue.
I never got 'messy' until you talked me into trying your grouting technique (via another lovely video) and now I've found out its not all that messy to do Im addicted (so go for it P in Wales, you'll love it, I enjoy using 3 sparkle texture paste's and plan to buy more. I really love the Canadian border used on today's beautiful card, think it may have to be my next die buy.
So until tomorrow I hope you have a lovely day whatever your plan's.
Love and hugs to you Sue and my special friends. And the sentiment is returned to you, and those dear friend's I've made thank's to you and Particraft.

Tressa said...

This technique is great fun. The only problem is the patience required waiting for the grout to dry; it does, however, do wonders for our organisational skills!! Using grouting with this particular folder results in a beautiful end product as can be seen from your video. You have also shown that you need few dies to produce a lovely card. Thank you Sue.

Hello sue an everyone I really like the embossing folder for this card it looks good with the glitter paste in it, nan as let me to this on silver card with paste called silver moon I think that was what the colour is called. I love it wen I can see you make them on video days. We have not finished the card for granddad yet we still got to make a box to put it in and we did it like sue does an nan ordered some little plate stands to put it on. Grandad is still very sick an yes he does have tablets to help stop being sick an also a back up tablet if the other ones don't work but they don't either, dad said if he don't stop being sick soon an start eating nan will have to call someone, my little sister lilly as come home because it was making her cry to much so now my other little sister grace as gone to stay at nans but she is older than lilly an said she won't start crying if she hears grandad being sick. Oh an thank you for the kind wishes again nan said your all very kind. Thank you Molly oxoxox

Simply stunning.

Unknown said...

Good afternoon Sue and lovely Wilsonettes,

Today's card presents a real challenge to me-yes, it's undeniably beautiful , but that's the problem because it reminds me that I should be casting my fear of mess aside and bravely trying the grouting technique regardless. I have bought all of the components but I haven't been man enough to use them yet-Christmas seemed like the perfect excuse, but why wait until then when you give us such inspirational hints and tips to achieving the look. You make it look so easy, but will I have the gumption to give it a try? Watch this space....!
I've had a challenging day thus far, didn't get to sleep until after 3.30am due to a gallstone attack-why do the always happen in the early hours? That'll teach me to have Fruit sherbets before bedtime! So I only had about 4 hrs sleep and at my age I need all the beauty sleep I can muster. Had a cold bath, the boiler is playing up, before heading off to Stirling to renew my blue badge- I've lost my birth certificate and I don't drive or have a valid passport so I had to use one from 25 years ago and a student card from 1993!!??! I'm surprised that they didn't laugh in my face, but they shock, horror! Accepted that it was actually me...those caci facials must be doing the trick then!:-)
Popped into M&S for one or two items and left with half the food section, lesson being stay clear of the dessert isle on an empty stomach!
Imagine the amount of dies I could have bought for that small fortune.....:-(
Poor dear Beth, I do hope that your antibiotics kick in soon, it's no laughing matter being in constant pain. My mum had the same problem last week and after a week of sleepless nights and liquidised food she finally got some antibiotics which seem to be doing the trick....they can cause problems of their own like nausea and oral thrush so be careful, love and hugs sweetiexxxxx
Molly, I know that it must be distressing for you and your sisters to watch your Grandad suffer, but it means the treatment is working and it's a normal side effect I'm afraid. It also doesn't necessarily mean that he won't be able to continue and get his operation, so try not to worry about that just yet darling, you are so brave. Keep crafting cos it's a great distraction and your card will make your Grandad smile with pridexxxx
Huge healing hugs to those in pain and suffering and their families-this is such a wonderful blog that Sue has created, the Wilsonettes are lovely , totally genuine and caring souls and it is a pleasure to know you all, and you always make me smile....humour is a great tonic!

Love and crafty hugs,


Lesley said...

Another great card and video. It is so interesting to watch you demoing new techniques.

barbara macaskill said...

What a fantabulous card!! I have always wanted to try this technique but was afraid that I would screw up and ruin a beautifully embossed sheet! Fears being cast aside and I am going to jump in with both feet and JUST DO IT!! Thanks for the push!

Hi Sue

Just love your Grouting technique as it brings the embossed backgrounds to life
& looks so pretty using the white sparkle grouting paste.

Stunning colour & die shapes combo & suitable for so many occasions.

Love your video demos as you always explain the techniques & what materials are used
very well & always informative to get us crafters trying new & different

Beautiful card!! Love the color combinations.. Nice technique..

Tres said...

Hi Sue. WOW !! I love today's beautiful card !! I have watched your video and it is great !! Your grouting technique looks great fun and the results are wonderful. I am intending to get some texture sparkle paste soon and then I can try this technique out for myself. I love the Bed of Roses EF. I really must invest in this one too !! Today's colour combo is fab and I really love the combination of dies you have used on your card. The Portuguese and Canadian Collections match so beautifuly together. I think the Canadian border is a particularly stunning die. Thank you for sharing this Fab video and stunning card today. Sending lots of love and hugs to you and your family Sue from Tres x x x

Sending lots of love to everyone from Tres x x x

Love today's card Sue. Haven't been able to watch the video yet. For some reason it won't load but perhaps there isn't enough room on my iPad. Will watch if I can at my sons as this is something I want to try.
