I tried to mimic a belt buckle with the "Genuine" stamp in this set, and I'm pretty pleased with the way it worked out! To get the metal look, I cut a piece of cardstock about the right size of the stamp. The I inked the entire paper with versamark, and then heat embossed the entire thing with platinum embossing powder. I repeated this four times, the last time sprinkling some gold and brown powder on the top layer before melting it all together with the heat gun. This gave the buckle that "used" look. Then, when the paper was good and hot, I stamped the image onto the paper. What you get is a great outline.
The leather belt is made by crinkling up some chocolate chip cardstock, and then inking it randomly with versamark, rubbing that into the paper. It makes a nice shiny/leather look to the paper.
I also distressed the Night of Navy cardstock to make it look like dirty jeans. All in all, I am pretty pleased with this card!!
