Hello! Today’s video shows how to use your dies and embossing powder to create faux metal embellishments. It is simple!

I shared this card last week on the Hero Arts blog, but received questions so I thought I would post it here. The video shows another great way to stretch your dies… by turning your die cuts into faux metal embellishments. I used the new Hero Arts Blooming Flower die and glued several layers together. (However, you could literally do this with any die you have! I thought this one was perfect because it looks like a medallion and is therefore impressive in metal.) After cutting the layered die cut in half and pressing the pieces onto a Versamark Ink pad, I added silver embossing powder. I put on two layers of silver to give a smoother look and then sprinkled on a little gold for a mixed effect. So easy.
Have you ever tried a technique like this? Would love to hear. You could mix any powders!
I have a winner! The winner of the big Avery Elle giveaway is Marilyn C. Lojek. I emailed you.
