Hexagons Embossing Folder Catalog Sneak Peek #2

This post originally went live on 12/30/16. The project uses the hexagons embossing folder that I love and will be retiring on 6/3/19. I just had to share before it’s gone for good!

Today I’ll be sharing a second Sneak Peek of some of my favorite products in the Occasions Catalog including…

…the Hexagons Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, The Urban Underground Specialty Designer Series Paper (DSP) and the Big on Birthdays Stamp Set. The embossing folder and DSP are both part of the Urban Underground Product Suite in the Occasions Catalog that goes live on 1/4/17.

I love the simple clean lines and bold sentiment, paired with the texture, dimension, and complexity of the Tarnished Foil elements. I hope you like it too!

Want to learn about the Impressions of Tarnished Foil Technique? You’ll find details and links to more samples ahead. Plus I’m now offering a NEW ONLINE CLASS featuring this technique!

This post originally went live on 12/30/16. The project uses the hexagons embossing folder that I love and will be retiring on 6/3/19. I just had to share before it's gone for good!

Details about This Card:

  • The sentiment is heat embossed with Silver Embossing Powder and flanked with two metallic enamel shaped stars.
  • The strip that underlines the sentiment was actually a scrap leftover from another project. It is attached so about 1/8″ of the black shows at the bottom. I love using little pieces and parts that would otherwise get discarded.
  • The Basic Black sentiment piece is backed with a piece of a Silver Foil sheet and attached to the card front with dimensionals.
  • The Basic Gray background is a piece of the Urban Underground Designer Series Paper (DSP). Isn’t the texture in this DSP simple and wonderful!

When using embossing folders you can choose to use either the debossed or embossed impression.

The debossed option with the Hexagon embossing folder is when the hexagon shapes are pushed in, and the embossed option is where the hexagon shapes are pushed out. I tried it both ways and in fact, have used both on this card.

The small strip that underlines the sentiment is debossed and the large vertical strip is embossed. It’s a little hard to see here but I’ll be sharing another sample soon with a close up so you can see it better. Stay tuned!
