Pearl Butterflies with Gemma

Today I have another card to share inspired by the WOW Facebook Group challenge. This month, the theme is Pearl and I've used the pearl powders on dark card to show how beautiful they transform.


I die cut three Pretty Pink Posh Bold Butterflies from black pearlescent card stock. I added WOW embossing ink to the wings of the first butterfly, then covered the top half with Blue Pearl embossing powder and the lower half with Violet Pearl embossing powder. These powders look white when first added, but once they are heated, the change to beautiful pearlescent coloured powders.


I repeated these steps for the next two butterflies, adding in some White Pearl embossing powder too. This beautiful powder looks more silvery on dark card.

On my card base, I adhered some navy pearlescent card to one half of the card base. I then adhered the butterflies in the centre, only adding adhesive to their bodies so their wings could lift up.


For the sentiment, I cut a strip of the black pearlescent card and heat embossed a birthday sentiment with WOW Opaque White Super Fine embossing powder. I added the sentiment strip to the card with foam tape to finish.

Have a lovely day,

Gemma

  1. What a fabulous demonstration of how wonderful these pearl powders look on black card Gemma and the finished multi coloured butterflies look great on the blue and white background. 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:



STEP ONE

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…
