Faux Metal Curly Label Punch

Published by under cards | Nov 10 2009

Just a quick post today to share with you this cute Faux Metal embellishment. I haven’t worked out yet what to do with it. Any ideas? 

I’ll turn it into something and post it here in a couple of days.

Faux Metal is a great technique. If you can emboss, you can create the ‘faux metal’ look. Just press your versamark pad directly onto your cardstock (I used Whisper White), then sprinkle on your embossing powder and heat.

Repeat this about 4 times so you’ve got a good thickish coating. While it’s still hot (and therefore soft) carefully push your uninked stamp into the surface and it will create a great impression! This picture is a bit shadowy so the image doesn’t look too clear, but in real life it looks great! Just like a metallic buckle!

This stamp and its matching punch are part of the Curly Label Punch Bundle (p153) which is one of the handy dandy items on the Gift Giving Guide. Click on the November Promotions tab at the top of this page for more details.

Happy stamping,
