Thanks for sharing that info, Daniel. I have a couple of flower shaping tools I might try too. (They are acrylic).

I love the look of the ribbon being sewn onto the flashing. The pins add a realistic touch. Very nice!

I made the masculine card using tinfoil. So that the design on the tinfoil wouldn't be crushed, I used my Xyron sticker maker to run it thru then mounted it on CS. Once that was done, I ran it thru the Cuttlebug using an embossing folder. This was another OOB as well.

Talking

Susan & Roberta. Love your embossed metal projects. TFS!

EFs are great with metal & are a quick way to do repousse (ray-poose-ay). It's when the metal is tooled on its reverse to raise the design on the front--how the copper was done for the Statue of Liberty.

Found a piece of stamped-metal that I did by repousse. The top fish shows the stamp image. I stamped it on the metal piece's reverse & used my wood tools to create the design shown . The fish stamp is from Hampton & I colored with permanent markers & applied ink.

Wanted to add a suggest for those using embossing folders with metal...

Depending on the original folder-design, it can be lots of fun to alter & add elements/lines with stylus or other tool.

Everyone's creations are so beautiful. I am so inspired. My stamping mojo took a huge nosedive this year. I want 2013 to be my huge creative year. Thank you all for inspiring.

Roberta- I cut my tin cans with tin snips. That still makes the cans super sharp. I use my Cuttlebug to flatten out the sharp edges on my cans. I run the plates through my CB with the can in the middle of the plates. I think I use two A plates. It's been awhile since I smushed cans. You don't need to use a die. I like to use cans to make jewelry and I also make embossed backgrounds with them.

Interesting that you cut your cans with tin snips. Are you talking about regular cans or aluminum ones (like berverage cans)? I much prefer cutting the aluminum ones with my micro-tip scissors & I really don't ever have sharp edges nor dull my blades.

Good tip on using the CB to flatten. I usually just cut off top & bottom of the can, cut down one side of the resulting tube & roll the sheet backwards to remove most of the curve.

Your card is lovely, Roberta. Beautiful fish, Daniel.

Glad to have a few more ideas for how to get the cans the way you want them, DeeAnn.
