Challenge #17: Metal!

Hello Users!

This challenge is inspired by my own personal crafty stash of all things metal...
Eyelets? Got 'em! Brads? Got 'em! Little word frames? Got 'em! Buckles? Got 'em!

Please make a project that has something metal on it! Use your imagination! Have fun with it!

***REMEMBER: All of our challenges call for you to use your hoarded supplies! A challenge requirement is to tell us in your post what you used!***

Please link your creation using Inlinkz by Friday Oct 21st . No blog? No problem! Just use keyword USE017 when uploading to an online gallery and leave us a direct link so we can find your creation. (Linking tips are at the bottom of the post!)

Please make sure to mention you are playing along with a Use It Tuesday challenge (a link is great too!) so we know you are participating.

As always, one lucky participant will be randomly chosen to be a featured guest designer in an upcoming challenge!

Here is a little inspiration from our fabulous design team to get you started:

Sonya made this festive card which was inspired by her overlooked pumpkin brads! (Oh my gosh, click on the picture to see them bigger...they are darling!) Love the rich colors!

Dinah used a metal frame and if you are looking closely, you will notice the title of "bubble" is made out of alpha brads! Genius!

named this tag 'find the time' because she needs to find some! Her tag is embossed with metal embossing powder and even the butterfly is a metal cut-out!

took the challenge into the kitchen! She pulled out tin foil, my friend, to make that amazing background! Per usual, she raided her craft stash for the remainder of this layout!

Heather used the faux metal technique to make this stunning card! Love the dimension it gives! She also finished it off with glimmer mist.

Nancy raided my stash for this one (well, not really but it is ironic that I have the EXACT items she used to make this beauty)! Love the big brads and that silver paper...yes, I hoard it too!

And the winner of our uninked stamp challenge, Jen, made these fabulous creations with her leaf brads!! Best use I have even seen for these brads...and the stitching is such a perfect addition!

We can't wait to see what you create! Now go Use It!!
