Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge: Metal-ology


Good Monday morning to you all!! I know....just trying to be positive :)
This week, our challenge at Simon Says Stamp and Show is to incorporate some form of metal into your project. I immediately thought this would make a perfect manly card for my hubby :)


I started by laying down chipboard letters on some scrap paper. I cut-out random rectangle shapes from Rangers Foil Tape Sheets, and smoothed them over the letters. I ran out of foil tape, so you can see two of the corners I just coloured black....This is a HUGE step for me in my quest for less "perfection striving" me lol!!!




 I added a few different "metal" elements to my card. I LOVE the mini gears from Tim Holtz idea-ology line, I added a few washers, brads, and vintage buttons too.



Our weekly sponsor Simon Says Stamp Superstore, is once again offering up an oh so generous prize of $50 dollar store voucher to one random participant!!!


I so hope you can join in on the fun at Simon Says Stamp and Show! You will definitely want to stop over there and see the amazing inspiration from the rest of the design team :)
Thanks so much for stopping by to visit! Hugs, TRace

Wow... I love those dimensional metal letters; the extra shading really makes them pop - and all those added elements are so cool!
