Creating Backgrounds with Texture Paste
Happy Craftersday, Crafty People! I’m so excited to be here with you today sharing another blog post. Today I am using texture paste and stencils to create a background for my card.
The card centers around this beautiful Thanksgiving stamp I got from Anthony’s Papercraft. I heat embossed it on mixed media paper and fussy around the edges. Watch this YouTube video for a full visual tutorial.

To create the background, I started with the Nature Stamp & Stencil set from Michaels. The set has four stencils and a few clear stamps. From the fur, I used the stencil with all the pretty flourishes and taped it over a white piece of card stock. The stencils are a bit flimsy so make sure the stencil is held down really well. Using a palette knife, I applied the Ranger Opaque White Texture Paste and let it dry. Once dry, use foam tape on the back of the cornucopia and set it in the middle of your texture paste card. It should adhere easily.
The card is really easy after this. Pick out a few paper flowers (mine are from Michaels) and arrange and glue them down as you like. Have some under the image as well as on top of it to give your card some depth. My flowers didn’t come with any embellishment in the middle so I added Buttermilk Nuvo drops. The color was just right for my flower.
At this point, I wanted the card to remain mostly white but I wanted more fine details so I added a white die cut I made using the Amazing Paper Grace Arched Elegance Etched Die and my Spellbinder. I went to the Spellbinders site and found out that Spellbinders and Fun Stampers Journey (fsj) are now an ‘item’ so I’m going to be checking them out. I adhered my die cut to my card and called it done.
