A Blog Named Hero Week - Day 4

We're on Day 4 of our collaboration week with A Blog Named Hero.

They are showcasing projects created with Neat & Tangled stamps all week and we're playing along with their current challenge, Metallics.

Today it's Rachel and Amandine's turns to share.  First up is Rachel:

I'm so happy to be joining in with the lovely ladies over at A Blog Named Hero this week for the metallics challenge. A 'metallics' challenge is the perfect opportunity to pull out some Bokeh Vellum Circles: Soft & Lovely. These gold & ivory circles are heavenly!

I created a simple one layer card using rows of these circles, which I messily stitched in place. I wasn't too careful about alternating the color or size, I just went for it! I did leave the rows varying lengths, however, to create some interest across the card front. The sentiment, from Faceted, is heat embossed in gold. The sentiments in this set are perfect for a metallics theme and work so well with the Bokeh Vellum Circles.

And from Amandine:

Hello everyone!  For me, when I hear the word metallic, I do not know why, but I always think of triangles!  This is what inspired me to make today's card.  In addition, I find that the Tiny Triangles set is just perfect to create a nice background full of sweetness with gold embossing on a yellow background.

I just needed a few embellishments to create a simple but effective card.  The sentiment is from the Paper Cut Flowers set.

What do you think? And I'd love to know what comes to mind when you think 'metallic.'

Thanks to Rachel and Amandine for sharing today.  Don't forget to stop by A Blog Named Hero to see how their team is utilizing Neat & Tangled stamps!
