Trying out new mediums for paper crafting can be overwhelming, especially when it comes to mixed media. Recently, I was introduced to Cloud Whip, a modeling paste from Scrapbook.com. In today’s video, I’ll share my thoughts on this new medium and demonstrate simple techniques using stencils, Pops of Color, and embossing powder, and share how I used them with Cloud Whip to create intricate backgrounds.
I recently had the chance to experiment with Cloud Whip from Scrapbook.com and was surprised by its thickness. With a matte opaque finish, Cloud Whip is a dense medium that adds depth to your designs. It has a bit more body than texture paste, and the result is a multi-dimensional effect that brings your cards to life. My goal today is to show you a few new techniques that you can try using this new product.
A simple way to use Cloud Whip is to add a dimensional design with a stencil. For this clustered leaf card, I spread the modeling paste in a diagonal pattern over an oak leaf design. Instead of filling the entire background with Cloud Whip, I left open space for a sentiment.
The thickness of the paste made it difficult to stir. I wasn’t sure if it was due to my arm injury or the dry climate in our state, which causes my paste to dry out quickly. After some research, I discovered that adding a small amount of water could make a substantial difference.
Do you want to take your Cloud Whip to the next level? Add a dash of color to it. For example, I used Terracotta Pops of Color and mixed it with the modeling paste to create a slightly tinted wreath card background. As I blended the two materials, the Terracotta hue began to lighten. I kept adding more until I achieved the perfect color for my card.
Using Cloud Whip can result in a rough texture as it dries. To avoid any unwanted texture showing behind my wreath, I only applied the Cloud Whip around the edges of my card panel.
This technique is sure to elevate your project to new heights. The coppery mum background was achieved by layering embossing powder over Cloud Whip. While the modeling paste is still wet, sprinkle the embossing powder over the stenciled image, then use a heat tool to melt the mixture. The Cloud Whip puffs up and combines with the embossing powder to produce an amazing design.

I’m thrilled to announce that I have some incredible upcoming projects in the works using Cloud Whip. Over the next few months, I’ll be experimenting with this new medium and I can’t wait to share more ideas with you.
I hope this inspired you to try something new. If you have any questions about this project or the supplies listed above, feel free to leave me a comment.
