'Magic Metal' Technique Blog Hop Challenge

I also made this card for Blockheads 'Magic Metal' Technique Blog Hop Challenge using their Maple Leaves Stamp! 

Cut a piece of card to fit the stamp. Using Versamark completely cover the card. Using ultrathick embossing powder springle over the inked card and melt with heat tool, repeat this about three or four times to get a nice thickness to stamp your stamp into, once you have done this press the stamp onto the melted embossing powder while its hot to get a nice impression! I cut a piece of mirror board slightly bigger and attached it to the embossed melted card. I used a piece of white cardstock and run this through my Cuttlebug using a embossing folder and edged with Tim Holtz Distressed Ink, Walnut Stain. I attached this to black cardstock, then added two gold brads and some white raffer tied in a knot and edged also with Distressed Ink, Walnut Stain. 


  1. Another gorgeous Magic Metals project! Beautiful!

  2. Again, I love the coloring of your magic metal piece. How did you get that lovely bronze color??? Thanks for sharing with us at the Blockheads Technique Challenge!!

  3. Another gorgeous example! I think you should frame both pieces, Val. :)

    Thanks again for playing with the Blockheads!
