Pearl Embossed Metallic Hexagons

Up first we have pearl embossed metallic hexagons. Graphic patterns are so striking and what could be better than two sources of shimmer?

WOW! Gold Pearl and White Pearl Embossing Powder provide the first source of shimmer. While metallic cardstock adds the second with, Curious Metallic Electric Blue, and Stardream Metallic Lagoon, Quartz, and Gold.

Altenew Kind Confetti supplied a different confetti pattern stamp for each color of cardstock. I embossed each pattern twice, once in Gold Pearl and once with White Pearl and die-cut with a hexagon stacking die.

Next, I arranged and popped up the hexagons and added a thanks sentiment with Altenew Bold Thanks Die Set. The shadow is cut from Stardream Metallic Gold cardstock which coordinates perfectly with Gold Pearl Embossing Powder. Don't you love all that shimmer?!

Butterfly Hello

As you can see, I carried over the graphic element with a rounded square background on the second card. Here, I Gold Pearl embossed white cardstock with Altenew Wood Pallet Background stamp.

You gotta use your leftovers! So, I used Altenew Waterbrush Hello Die to cut the remainder of the embossed blue metallic cardstock from the first card. The leftover Lagoon cardstock provided the sentiment strip and rounded square mat. There are holes missing from the Lagoon matt, but you'd never know.

That cute little butterfly was stamped with Altenew Dream Big stamp set and all the elements were popped up with foam tape. Altenew Volcano Lake, Sapphire, and Persian Blue Crisp Dye Inks coordinate well with the metallic cardstock.

That's a wrap, guys! I hope you enjoyed these projects. Tomorrow is the last day to submit your projects to the WOW! Monthly Challenge on the Facebook Fan Page. No time to create? No worries, check out the gallery for more pearl embossing inspiration.

Two super cards Amber and love the hexagons on the first and some great shimmer and love te look of the confetti stamped over them and finished with that lovely large gold shadowed sentiment which goes beautifully, and then the leftover pieces work well on the second. I love the wood pallet stamped background and the pretty butterfly and die cut and stamped sentiment. x

Handy Stamp Storage Idea

Hello everyone... Happy Tuesday! :D

It's Sarah here with today's blog post created for our Monochromatic theme.

I don't know about you, but I always find I need to use stamps from a mixture of stamp sets and I thought it would be easier if I didn't have to slide each stamp set in and out of the packets all of the time.

I have a bunch of empty CD cases that I had almost thrown out but thankfully I hadn't as they turned out to be the perfect solution! The part that holds the CD easily popped out so I could then position my different stamp sets within them.

I found an old wooden CD box but it had no lid and as all clear acrylic stamps are best stored out of the light, I decided I would make a box lid for it... not just a plain lid though... a Wow Embossed box lid!

Here are brief instructions on how to make it:


Using pearl silver card, I created a square to the size that I needed (145mm) and added 30mm wide rectangles around the square adding in some t…

Happy memories - embossed background

I must admit I was having a bit of a problem coming up with a memory keeping project for this months post. I have been making almost only cards lately and had a bit of a problem filling a whole layout. I do make some layouts and lately I've been partial to letter sized layouts because the format remind me of cards and makes it easier for me to plan the page. This time I made a A4 sized layout because it's easier for me to find the page protectors in regular stores here. I used some good cardstock that doesn't warp much when you heat it or add water since i knew I would emboss it.
Here's what I did. I picked the pretty Chrysanthemum background stamp and embossed it in Silver Pearl embossing powder three times in a row across the background. I must admit I was more than a little inspired by Isha Guptas cards for her guest post earlier this week. I used distress inks in Twisted Citron and Mermaid Lagoon and applied with an ink blending tool randomly over the embossed are…
