Faux metal technique

Hi Ive been sick this week so I havent updated after an awesome weekend away at The Autumn Escape…a luxury scrapbooking weekend away at Wairakei Resort. I had a fabulous time chatting to old friends (and new) and taking a couple of classes. One with Nic Howard and one with Kim Archer..loved both of them! We were very spoilt and got lots of free product..it was absolute heaven!

I made a make n take there and heres my example.

Its a bagalope and using the trendy tree wheel, Petal Pizzazz and A good friend. I used the two way glue pen and the chocolate supernova glitter on the tail and the colours Ive used are Kiwi kiss, Chocolate chip, Tangerine tango and riding hood red.IMG_5685 Choc chip crosgrain ribbon to keep it closed. very quick to do (apart from all that hand cutting) I prestamped and prescored to help with the time factor.

The next card is as the title announces ..a faux metal card and was part of my card class this week. It is using metallic cardstock which comes in a pack of 12 (3 different metallic cs in each pack-silver, copper and gold) teamed up with several layers of silver embossing powder and stamped with 2 stamps from The Sweet Stems Stamp set. FUN!!!!! Its a real wow technique and I will be doing more of this technique for sure (just a warning though that it is very hungry on the embossing powder)

IMG_5683Ive also used black crosgrain ribbon, the scallop square punch a, the wide oval punch and Urban Garden DSP.
