Couple of Cards

My friend, Betty, designed TTTC 132 board.  I used copper foil for the ThermoWeb Toner Card Front.  I didn't get complete coverage which I find tends to happen with big, solid areas.  
Actually, I like the distressed look.  The Stamp Market Just Vine die was cut from copper & black cardstock.  I stacked the leaves 3 high.  
For the sentiment I stacked the word die from W&W Big, Bold, Seasons 5 high, covered it with Nuvo Glaze & added a black shadow.  The companion words from the same set were white embossed on black cardstock.  Finished off with black enamel dots.  I used the diagonal row of Die Cut, Free (foil), Fall.
Next is the card I made for the Pinkfresh Studio September Challenge.  I had forgotten about the beautiful Lush Vines stamp which I black embossed.  I wanted a look transitioning to Fall, so I loosely colored with Zigs in 2 shades of green & mustard.  
Finally opened my Small Butterflies & gold embossed them.  I picked one & colored it with the same Zigs.  The green butterfly body was covered in gold Stickles.  
The sentiment from Delicate Wreath was stamped on a vellum strip & a black strip was added to the left side of the panel.  I finished off with yellow gems that pick up the colors in the light. 
We finally are getting some much needed rain.  I'm happy to have cooler temperatures.  The roses will soon finish blooming, but this one was so beautiful I snapped a picture before it rained.
Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.  If your blog address is in your profile or comment, I will visit you.

  3. I love the combination of copper and black and that vine is so pretty against the copper foil. What a great background of vines and berries for the gold butterfly. Two lovely cards and your rose is gorgeous. It's sad to see them go at the end of the season.

  8. I LOVE the distressed look of your foiling Greta, it's a gorgeous rich card. Your second is beautiful, love the different greens and mustard of the leaves and the vellum sentiment and the lovely butterfly. It's sad to see the end of the Summer flowers, but they seem to show off more somehow. This is a gorgeous rose Greta.
