Metal embossed card

Hello again.

As promised, I have posted another metal embossed card that I sent to a friend this week.

The flower was stamped onto a light coloured metal , embossed and then coloured with a rose pink metallic paint.
can't remember the make of the stamp as I stamped it a while back and had it sitting in my "bits" box. It is a lovely open design which is very suitable for embossing.

This card was also a gift , to a friend of my mum, who is as obsessed by owls as I am!!


It has been cut out of metal using a Tattered lace die. I mounted this onto a piece of black felt and cut around it, then attached a brooch pin onto the back.
I think this owl is a very pretty shape. Must get around to making one of these for myself!! The embossing folder is from Sizzix. It is a very useful frame.

                  Hope you have enjoyed looking, and please visit again.

Metal embossing


Just a quick post today, as I haven't done one recently!!

I have been inspired, at the start of a new year, to create some projects with metal.
It is a product I love to use, but haven't actually done much with it recently.

The sample below uses metal tape and is useful when working with delicate stamps.
It can be stuck onto a piece of card then stamped onto with Staz-On ink. The ink needs to be dry before the design is traced over with an acrylic embossing tool. This gives a delicate embossed look.

This is a Hobby Art stamp
The metal tape can also be stuck over die cut shapes and then worked with the metal tools. Some interesting designs can be created this way, particularly for book covers.
Some more metal embossed cards to follow.
Bye for now.
