Deb's Kickin' It With Heavy Metal!I have literally dozens of these Rusty Tin-Tiques shapes in my studio ... and I rarely use 'em; wow, that's unusual, huh?!? But, today's the day!
Julie's Kickin' It With Heavy Metal!
I have to admit, this idea threw me for a loop! I thought I had a ton of ideas and I just kept staring at all my supplies in my stamp room, I came up with a blank every time! So, I emailed my creative genius and bud Deb and said, "Hey, what are you doing for the challenge? I need some help." Well, shortly after came an email with no less than 50 things you can do with metal on a card!! LOL! I am sure she'll email it to you if you are stumped! :-)
I decided to keep it simple and predictable. I used a piece of solid brass. I have no idea why I had this in hand. It is not a stamping grade metal, it is about twice as thick. It was down the wood working aisle at my local craft store. I cut off the size of a card front, ran it through my Wizard with a Cuttlebug Embossing Folder and called that part good.
The sentiment is actually part of a background stamp from Flourishes that I just inked up one part of and then added the word "Thank You." You can see the set by clicking HERE. Notch off two corners, add some hot fix nail heads and a piece of black satin ribbon.... and you're done. Pretty easy-peasy-lemon-squeezy!!
We can't wait to see where your rockin' creativity takes you ... whether you kick it with a metal embellishment or rock the card with a whole bunch of heavy metal!
