Metallic Embossed Purse

This beautiful embossed metal and paper purse by Kathi Anderson was embossed on pewter metal from MercartUSA. Kathi travels and teaches in New Mexico and has an upcoming class at China Phoenix in Albuquerque on November 6, so if you are lucky enough to be in that area ...that is where it is happening. (She also reps my stencils in Missouri and Western Texas.) She used the new flower stencil with the flourishing vines and leaves (LJ902). Although the pewter is somewhat pricey, Kathi says that she is able to put the metal with the stencil through the Big Shot embossing machine. Then she adds more detail work with tools that she reps from MercartUSA. If you have more questions she will be staying tuned with your comments and will make a point of answering any questions.

This pattern came from an old DIY Carol Duval
episode. You might be able to find it in the
archives.

Okay, now I have to break out my metal sheets again. Good thing that I didn't get rid of them.
Kathi, will this work with a Big Shot, or do you have to do it all by hand?

I don't know about the Big Shot. I don't have
one. I used the Wizard with a very thin
embossing mat that I got from My Favorite
Things. They have a set of 2..a thicker
and the very thin. I would think it would
work with any machine. The trick would be
the silicon embossing mat. Hope this helps.
