Dazzling Diva #53

Wednesday, November 26, 2014

Time for another Dazzling Diva Challenge from Add a Little Dazzle.  This week we are focusing on embossing techniques with metal.  Did you know that you can emboss the metal with a variety of stencils and it takes embossing paste beautifully too!

I've chosen to use a metal stencil for my embossing today and I've used the No More Shims Embossing Mat and the poinsettia stencil that can be found here in the Add a Little Dazzle Boutique.
Here's a close up:

So depending on how you hold it in the light...you see more black or more gold.

Such an easy way to dress up a card.  I cut a piece of craft metal to the size of the stencil, placed it in my Big Shot Pro with the No More Shims Embossing Mat and fresh cutting pads.  I keep a set of cutting pads just for embossing the metal so that there are no marks of any sort in them.  Then, I simply rubbed some Oldsilver Inka Gold across the embossed piece.  I let it dry a bit before swiping it with a baby wipe, very gently.  Then after it was completely dry, I buffed it with a soft cloth.  Then it was added to my card with some designer paper and a die cut sentiment.

Would love to see you join us for this fun challenge!  Use of AALD craft metal sheets is not a requirement to play along, but we'd love to see you use them! There is a $15 gift certificate up for grabs.  Add a Little Dazzle craft metals sheets are available here.

And just a heads up, Add a Little Dazzle is having a Black Friday Sale, check this out on Friday!!!
