I did a real quick creation using only one stamp and made those great rolled flowers but using metal sheets!
Yes, METAL!! They are so much fun to make and makes for a unique look.I started with some Cream colored cs for the base. I have had sheets of this great cardstock but have no idea where I got it from! It's very smooth and a nice shade of cream. I used Basic Grey's Periphery dp for the bottom portion and ran another piece of cream cardstock through the CB for the upper embossing. I then ran over the embossed print with Versamark and careful brushed it over with some Perfect Pearls in Kiwi for a beautiful sheen. punched out a strip with my MS border punch and added some sheer ribbon for the finishing touch. I stamped "From the Heart" (SU!) in a perfect space on the dp with a few added self adhesive pearls. Now, the flower as I mentioned is metal.I used Quick Kutz self adhesive metal sheets to cut out with my MFT die-namics rolled flower die. Being self adhesive makes it easier to keep it all together, BUT being metal you have additional step to really get the look. Once you are done with rolling the flower, I used some jewelry pliers to pull out some of the layers to give it more of a "flowered" look. Bending and pulling in different areas. You must use pliers or something like it as you are unable to use your fingers- you will cut yourself. Be really careful because it does get sharp playing around with it and I recommend washing your hands after to get any left over metal fibers off. I added a little self adhesive pearl to the center of the flower to finish it up. A simple card with a hint of elegance! : ) TFL!! For more info: http[://beadnstampn.blogspot.com
