Metal Embesllishments

I promised a tutorial and here it is. Christine asked me to do something for the newsletter this week over at All That Scraps. I designed this card just for that. I love the way this one turned out. Enjoy the eye candy. :)

You will need copper flashing (from your home improvement store), Spellbinders dies, Impressabilities, Wizard die cut machine, Copic E49 and airbrush system, nail sanding block

Lay your die cut side face up on your magnetic mat, place flashing face down on top of die. Place white cutting mat on top of sandwich and run through your Wizard.

It will look like this when cut.


Lay your die with the flashing still in it on top of your Impressability. Make sure the cut side is up. Layer rubber mat and white cut mat on top of that and run through your Wizard.


Your metal piece will have the impression of your Impressability embedded in the metal.


Airbrush metal piece with your E49 copic marker and your airbrush system. It will look like this when finished airbrushing.


Sand with your nail sanding block.


This is what the finished piece should look like. Assemble your card. This is an easy way to get a super wow on your project.

Meet Pippi, isn't she just the cutest dressed up like a pumpkin? These swiss pixies are rocking. I wanted to point out my pumpkins, Kimberly Crawford came up with this fabulous idea to use the Octagon Nestabilities to make pumpkins. I tweaked mine a bit but I wanted to show you hers. They can be seen on her blog here <----. She does fabulous work and I love her fantastic imagination. I never would have thought of this one. :) Thanks for the idea Kimberly! If you head on over to the ATS blog you will be able to have a chance to win this adorable pixie and see more ideas with her.
