I’m giving away one of these Metal-Stamped Affirmation Pendants every week! Before I go into the tutorial to make them, let me explain the giveaway…I had a glitch and had to reset my web site and I lost ALL my daily subscribers. Yah, total ugly cry when I first realized it. At the same time, I happened to be making these fun metal-stamped necklaces and decided to make wearable lemonade, right?
If you were signed up for my daily digest, you’ll have to sign up again HERE (or below). So Sorry for the trouble! The good news is I’m drawing one name each week to win one of the necklaces, handmade by me!

- Metal Stamping Block
- Uppercase Newsprint Letter Set
- Metal-stamping Hammer
- Jump rings
- Stamping blanks
- Stamp Straight Tape
- Black Puffy Paint
- Scrap cloth
My first tip is to line up all your letters in order so they are easy to find. Use the tape to secure your blank to the block. Line up the tape where you want to stamp, because you’ll use it as a guide as to where to line up your letters. Make sure you have the letter stamp facing the correct way – practice first. Then set it in place and give it a good hit with the hammer. Maybe two! Once you’re done, squirt some Puffy Paint and rub it into the grooves of the letters, then wipe away the paint with the scrap piece of cloth. Let dry, then rub away any leftover residue. If you want to add a bit of sparkle use some Liquid Fusion and Glam It Up Crystals!
