Copper Leaf

Good morning everyone! 

A few weeks ago, I received the blog candy that has been donated for the current challenge at ATCAS from our wonderful friend, Loll.  Little did I know but that sneaky, but oh so generous, woman sent me some sheets of her copper metal that she uses on her cards from time to time.

We were talking yesterday about the copper. I hadn't had an opportunity to use it (and my goodness it is sharp!).  So, I was asking all the right questions about how to use it, can you stamp on it etc etc. Loll gave me some great ideas.

I decided that today was the day to pop it through the Big Shot and see what the results were.

Holy Cow! I think it looks amazing, but you can be the judge of that ;)


Here is my card -





Look at those colours!!! I am blessed to have exceptional natural lighting where I craft and I must say that for once, the photo has done my card complete justice. I used a sheet that Loll had already heated for me and the colours that were produced were just perfect for an Autumn leaf.


I nearly squealed with delight when I saw the current challenge at


and also these other wonderful challenges -

Robins Fetish Challenge blog - Challenge #186 - Use Metal (real or faux)

Dream Valley Challenges - Challenge #70 - CAS

Make it Monday - Anything Goes


I have used a woodgrain folder on the Whisper White panel. I haven't added a sentiment to the inside yet until I decide who the recipient will be.


So a big thanks to Loll for sending me these copper sheets!

Thanks so much for looking xx
