Metal - embossing plates and more!

I have to tell you, every Tuesday I look forward the TACO Tuesday video over at Ten Seconds Studio blog. Megan & Cheryl kill me. If I ever spoke to my mom like that, well let's just say even at my age, I'd be eatting some soap! BUT each week they turn me onto a new technique, and I just love their product.
Many of you locals have seen me demo this product over at Artist & Display. Boy are they in for a treat when I bring in the pieces I'm working on now!
Here's a card I did for a friend whose birthday I blew off. Well, just sending a card anyway. But no one should be shocked to NOT get a card from me lately. More of a shock if you actually get one!
The roses are from one of the new Kabuka molds. Didn't think I'd care for this side of the mold much BUT the swirly part of the rose. OMG, wait til the pendant with Ice resin finishs drying so I don't f-it up...
BUT the roses embossed in Rock Star black & cut out went PERFECTLY with "Relaxin' " from Stampotique don't ya think?

OK, CLEARLY not metal, but another Stampotique character named 2 barettes. She's done on Stampbord.

Recent work

With much MUCH MUCH anticipation, the new Texture Fades by Tim Holtz & Sizzix have arrived! I'm so excited I can hardly stand it!
This from the RAYS & RETRO CIRCLES set. Done on white, but cool!

Now add a little Distress Ink!

This is done on the plastic packaging the fades came in:

And this is a finished piece I did for a Forigen land swap! Don't look Phylis!!!!
The Image is from Alter Pages. I embossed the background paper with the Flourish fade, aged it with Distress Ink, and then hit it with a Palette black glue pad so I could add Martha's Brownstone glitter.
Ooo la la!
