Bombshell Stamps March Blog Hop!

Like I mentioned in yesterday's post, the theme for the Bombshell Stamp March Bloghop is METAL - We had to try using metals in our project : Make something on metal, metal accents, metal embellishments, or even "Metal" music...

Here's a card I made with the METAL theme in mind:


I cut the frame out of my Storybook cartridge and then heat embossed it a couple times to make it look like an aged, metal frame. I colored the Bombshell in black and white to keep with the vintage theme and then put a piece of clear plastic over the image so it looked like it was really in a frame. I then "hung" it on a piece of shiny, hot pink cardstock to resemble the top part of a wall. The damask pattern paper is supposed to look like actual wallpaper, with the black wood-grain cardstock with the silver studs serving as the chair rail.

So much detail is lost in my crappy picture taking...lol. In person, the flowers match the pink almost perfectly. Oh well... you get the point!!

Make sure you leave a comment and Happy Hopping!!

  6. AWESOME!!!! And definitely metal-y!! So how do you emboss several times? Do you just repeat the same steps? It doesn't seem like versamark and powder would stick on top of what was already heated. I'm gonna have to try this.....

  10. Fabulous card and the frame really does look like metal! I too love embossing multiple times, it's a technique that really makes images pop and you've really rocked it here! Love the color palette, too, and how you colored the bombshell in black and white...that's just something I never think to do, but now you've inspired me ;D
