Hi there,

It’s Kaja from Kajcyika crafts and today I will show you a card with one of my favorite new products — Marshmallow paste!

Take a look at the card:

Stenciled Marshmallow Paste with Kaja

Since I knew which product I want to use on this card, I started making it by creating the background. I took a piece of Mercury metallic paper, and the Christmas stars stencil along with the Marshmallow paste. I positioned everything where I wanted it to be and then applied the paste over the stencil.

Since the magic happens when you heat set the paste, I went ahead and started heating it. While doing so, I made sure that I didn’t heat set it too much since the paste is designed to turn into a snowflake-like texture if you apply heat for a longer period of time. When I was happy with the puff I had, I set the background aside and focused on the focal image.

I wanted to have a card in red tones, so I took three shades of red ink and one of my favorite Maker Forte stamp sets — Easy Winter Watercolor Scenes. Then, I created an ombre effect, starting with the darkest color at the top and the lightest at the bottom.

Once I was happy with the colors, I cut the stamped image into a square shape that will fit into the background nicely.

The last missing piece on the card was a sentiment. I decided to go with a simple ‘Merry Christmas’ saying that can also be found in the Easy Winter Watercolor Scenes stamp set. I used the same red ink as I did for the focal image, so the colors go together nicely.

The only thing left to do was to glue everything together, for which I used some foam tape and double-sided tape.

Have you tried the Maker Forte Marshmallow paste yet? If not, what is your favorite stenciling medium?

Thank you so much for joining me!
