Copper Leaf for CAS Mix Up

Hello friends.  Welcome to my blog!

We have a new challenge at CAS Mix Up

Using heated copper, Brushos, stamping and die cutting

This month's challenge is hosted by the fabulous Mac

We have lots of videos of different techniques to add metal to your cards.
You'll find them at the challenge site.

The Design Team has some fabulous inspiration pieces to share with you
and we are joined this month by our Guest Designer

We are excited to have a new member of our Design Team!
I hope you'll give Susan (Cats Ink.Corporated) a warm welcome.

I was quite lazy and dug into some wonderful heated copper die cuts
that my dear friend Loll had sent me.  Thank you again, sweet friend.

Here's a close up of the copper leaf.

Isn't it pretty?

I pulled out a background piece done with Brushos
sprinkled into spray starch and popped it behind a die cut square.

You don't have to have copper to join in this challenge.

There are lots of ways to incorporate metal into our cards.

I can't wait to see how you use it.

CAS Mix Up is open until the 24th.


Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

Enjoy!

Such a fabulous colourful background to go with your beautiful heated copper leaves Bonnie, and a lovely effect with the spray starch and Brushos. The stitched frame shows it off beautifully and the complementary blue inked sentiment is just perfect. x

Oh, this is gorgeous. I love the shine of the copper on that pretty background. I can't wait to try this!

That copper leaf just pops out of that lively background of Brushos with the sentiment to match. The specs of orange just add to the symbiosis of the copper. Wow, the perfect balance, beautiful my friend. xx

You’ve highlighted your gifted heated copper leaves beautifully, Bonnie. That Brusho background is gorgeous. Love the colours. x

Brenda said...

Oh my, this is a stunning card Bonnie! I am loving that beautiful copper leave Loll sent to you. She is so generous and sweet! Your background is amazing, loving the colors in there, but I'm confused on the starch. How did you use starch??? Let me see if I have it straight, you sprayed starch down on your paper and then sprinkled the brushos???? Very cool look no matter how you got it! lol Mac picked a great challenge! Hugs, Brenda

I love the contrast between the shiny metal look (copper) leaf and the soft and colorful Brusho background, Bonnie! The simple pierced frame is just perfect to show it off.

Bonnie, your background looks like a supernova explosion! I love the explosion of colors. It is such a stunning background for a metalized twig. This is a memory card with an extraordinary person. I love your project.
