Video: Metal Leafing

Recently, a few folks have emailed me suggesting I use an “older product” and bring it back to life. So today I dug out my old metal leafing and teamed it up with some new My Favorite Things stamps and created a couple simple cards.

(Supplies are linked in the thumbnails at the end of this post.)

The look of metal leafing is so unique… check this out…

Warning: Metal leafing can but addictive! Another warning: Metal leafing can be frustrating. However, if you follow the tips in the video, you can avoid the frustrations! I used the Variegated Metal Leafing on these cards, but am looking forward to breaking out my silver flakes in the future. These work really well with the Ranger Sticky Embossing Powder.

I teamed up the new My Favorite Things Fabulous Sayings stamp set (full of great mix and match greetings in great fonts) with the flowers from the Forget Me Not set. (These are both new MFT products. You can find more of their many new products on MFT’s site, Simon Says Stamp or Ellen Hutson.) These images worked well with the leafing.

I really like the look of leafing on super dark or super light cardstocks. The navy is fun! For the stripes on the side, I used the My Favorite Things Striped Backgrounds stamp set.

Thanks so much for stopping by. See you soon!
