Another Foiled Magnet

By now you know I love using foil with self adhesive fun foam.  Couldn't resist adding another color of foil to my stash--pewter.  When it arrived I thought I made a mistake, but oh my goodness--it's wonderful!  You might think it's silver, but it's darker & very elegant.  It will also be great for masculine cards.
I've been wanting to frame a picture from my meeting with Darnell last year & finally did it. The cute blossoms from Uniko Flower Power #7 are stamped in PTI Spring Rain & Enchanted Evening.  I covered them with Diamond Glaze giving a clear dimension.  They were too light, so I added faded jeans Distress Stickles & pearl centers. The vellum leaves are by 4enScrap & the friends die cut is PTI inked in Enchanted Evening & covered with WOS. It's now in the place of honor on my fridge!  I'm entering these challenges: Uniko, CropStop, Double D & SSS Wednesday

Thought I'd leave you with pictures of my first roses to bloom--very early this year. Thanks so much for taking time to visit my blog.

  8. Thisis such a wonderful way to frame yourself and Darnell, looks wonderful. As do your roses, I just looked out the window at my frangipani tree and saw its still flowering as we head inyo the last month of autumn. But nothing beats the look and smell of roses, if I could grow flowers roses would be in my garden.

  14. What a sweet photo of you two! Love the pewter frame I have so much foil and I have not used it on the fun foam in a long time. I did add it to the frame you sent but it got messed up so I never shared it on my blog. Hugs

  17. Your frame is a real work of art! So petite and pretty and perfect for your fridge. Absolutely flawless job on this. Love the foil and I'm especially fond of pewter. Your roses are a work of art, too. They certainly are early. I have buds, but no blooms yet. Thanks for sharing this in our Double D April Showers Challenge, Greta!

  21. Hi Greta! It's been so long since I came here...
    But I still and always love your beautiful creativity!
    I didn't know this kind of foil. Your lovely frame is a pretty way to use metallics and to keep memories.
    Love your precious roses... I can smell them from here 😉

  23. Such a pretty frame for 2 pretty ladies. Lucky you to meet up with Our Darnell...and I can see you both enjoyed it. I have never thought of trying to foil the fun foam. Would love to have instructions....did you use the nuvo glue to adhere, or ?Minc? wonder if the heat would melt the foam so prob'ly not the Minc. Good idea though, such dimension, and the flowers are wonderful too. TFS

    Bravo Greta!!

  25. Thank you for the head's up to come over, Greta! I'm glad you did or I would have been really startled to see my mug front and center on your blog! I love the frame you made for our photo, but you know, I love the one you gave me even more!! It's still sitting right here in the Playhouse!! Although I do love the addition of the friends word across the front. You are really a wizard with the foils! (I had to smile that you didn't even link my name, like everyone knows me - too funny!) Thank you for making my day and then some!! Mwah! Also, thanks for sharing your gorgeous roses!! Hugs, Darnell

  34. Pewter foil? Be still my crafty heart!!! I'll bet this frame is gorgeous in person, but not nearly as gorgeous as the two ladies in the photo...and, that's the truth! I also LOVE your flowers and the font on your sentiment is just perfect, Greta!
