I had a lot of fun with this blog collaboration!  It's always cool to have a new product to play with.  I love to create mixed media pieces and their metal sheets combined with Stampendous Stamps and Dies are perfect for just that.  Here's my project:

Here's a close-up of some of the snowflakes showing the details of heat embossing with some great embossing powders from Stampendous!

Here's what I used to create this canvas:

Misc. 8 x10" Stretched Canvas

Here's what I did to create this canvas:

Using all three dies, cut out several snowflakes in all three colors of metal listed, set three small snowflakes aside
With the matching stamps, ink stamps with Boss Gloss™ and add embossing powders, heat emboss
Hand cut a strip of white metal to use across bottom of canvas
Add Gelatos® to canvas with darkest colors along outer edges, lighter colors in the center and blend with water and brush
Adhere white metal piece to bottom of canvas
Using Boss Gloss™, add ink across edge of metal, add embossing enamel and heat
Use Boss Gloss™ to add ink around canvas, add Stardust embossing powder and heat
Stamp words onto the three snowflakes set aside earlier
Arrange and adhere snowflakes onto canvas
