See how using Lunar Paste and stencils from our collection can add the most delightful details with very little effort!
Have you used Lunar Paste? Lunar Paste is a colored, creamy paste with a metallic sheen that adds beautiful texture and a subtle sparkle to your projects. Today Ricky is sharing how using Lunar Paste and stencils together creates a detail that is so gorgeous that you will want to try it out with ALL our stencils in our collection. Whether you use it to add tiny eye catching details as on today’s card or as an all-over effect with a larger stencil, this medium adds a TON of impact with just an easy swipe.
Let’s check out Ricky’s steps for this colorful and fun holiday card!
Ricky started by stamping the wreath from our Floral Wreath Set. Using Nectar Color Fuse Ink from Set #4, he colored in the flowers using the coordinating stencil.
Then with the second flower stencil – the one that adds the center details – Ricky used Gold Rush Lunar Paste to add his metallic details.
After letting the paste dry, Ricky use Moss and Basil Color Fuse Inks from Set #10 to add color to his leaves on the wreath. Our layered stencils make it super easy to create these beautifully detailed looks.
Here’s what the wreath looks like after all the layers have been stenciled. Isn’t that addition of the shimmery gold Lunar Paste practically perfect?
When he was all done coloring, Ricky used our coordinating die to cut out the whole wreath, center included!
To build his card, Ricky took a piece of patterned paper from our Ho Ho Ho 6 X 6 Paper Pad and cut it to card front size. This fun overall pattern gives his card so much energy and because it uses the same color combination Ricky used on his stenciled die cut wreath, it accents rather than competes with the details.
Ricky chose a sentiment from our Winter Bouquet set and stamped it with Versamark ink on a coordinating green card stock, heat embossing it with white powder for a pop of contrast. Ricky says “Since I used gold Lunar Paste today, gold heat embossing would also look great!”
Ricky fussy cut around the sentiment. He adhered his patterned paper to a card base, popped his wreath on with some foam tape adhesive and then added the sentiment with more dimensional adhesive to overlap the wreath a tiny bit to add visual flow to his fabulous card.

We are so excited that Ricky chose this Lunar Paste and stencils that make a holiday theme because they just go together so perfectly! Are you enticed to try out Lunar Paste with our stencils? Which stencil will you start with?
