Metallic Patterned Paper on Vellum with Ankita

Hi friends! 

Hope you are having a great day! Thank you so much for stopping by this blog post. I always love embossing on vellum. It has a very delicate and elegant feel to it. I created a metallic patterned paper with embossed texture on vellum using WOW Metallic Platinum Super Fine embossing powder. It was so much fun and the results were beautiful. In my second project I used the Metallic Gold Rich Super Fine powder and heat embossed on Woodgrain texture cardstock to created a textured pattern on textured paper. 

I started off by die cutting the leaves using Stitched Leaf Wreath from Simon Says Stamp in colored cardstock and ink blending on them using Distress Inks. I splattered some white gouache and black watercolor paint for some added texture. 
Next I took a panel of heavy weight vellum and stamped the fall images on it using WOW Clear Embossing Pad and heat embossed using Metallic Platinum Super Fine Embossing powder. It has a beautiful sparkle and a very smooth finish to it…

Leave a little Sparkle wherever you Go

Hello everyone, Yasmin here on today's blog I would like to share with you my favorite technique when comes to create a sparkly cover background card. For that I have chosen the Metallic Platinum Sparkle Embossing Powder and the Folk Dance Waffer die by Simon Says Stamp to create this card.
To begin with I started by die cutting an A2 side card panel out of  heavy weigh white cardstock. Then, I used the Ultra Slow Drying Embossing Pad to coat the whole top surface. Before, I heat embossed it with the Metallic Platinum Sparkle embossing powder.
Once, I was done with the heat embossing. I die cut a white square by using white cardstock and a stitched square die by Lawnfawn.
Last but not least, I stamped one of the sentiment from the Born to Sparkle stamp set with Versafine Onyx Black Ink. And, to finish it up. I adhered the heat embossed background with liquid glue to a white card base. Then, I adhered the backed of the stamped square with foam mounting tape to add a little bit of…

Baked and Metalized jewellery by Jaine

I recently rediscovered my packets of oven bake clay (following a clear out, as one does) and thought about creating some one-off pieces of jewellery with it. The theme this month is 'Metallic' which made me wonder how it would look if I used embossing powder to metalize some clay embellishments?

The first experiment went horribly wrong which I'm showing you here just so you know what not to do! This is embossing powder on raw clay then baked in the oven. The temperature was way too high causing bubbling and separating of the powder, and before you ask no I didn't get rid of it. I may do something with it in the end.

Experiment two went much more smoothly. I made a couple of organically shaped circles and pinched up the edges. I used the heart mould to press some clay into one of the smaller hearts.

I baked the clay as it said on the packet and when it was cool enough to handle I used a sponge to apply some embossing ink over the top. The sponge allowed me to get into…

Metallic "Hello" cards by Riikka

Moikka! It's Riikka here today. I know you are going to be surprised by the project I created this time. Not only I made a minimalist card but with a video! Please let me know if you prefer the step by step styled tutorials or video form. I don't promise anything, but will then do my best to make more of those tutorials!

I wanted to keep things a bit simpler this time with the metallic theme. Naturally I could have created something like the canvas I did back in October last year (link), but I had this idea of painted glass windows I wanted to try out. I used a transparency as my base and started layering different powders on top. The key element is the transparency - it needs to cope with warmth so something meant for laser printing is ideal.
By using a stylized stamp and black embossing powder as the first medium and then delicately filling in the design with colored powders you could create something like the famous Rose Window of Notre Dame. And if you only use translucen…
