_MG_1972 (Medium)Hi! Todays card relies totally on the Go Press and Foil! I had done so much experimenting with my new machine I had a table covered with lots of foiled bits and pieces and had no choice but to sit down and use some of them up on cards!! The framed background is and Anna Griffin foil stamp die by couture creations,and the Birthday wishes sentiment is an Ultimate Crafts hotfoil stamp.I added die cut leaves, and flowers and the butterfly in the corner was from Kaisercraft lilac whisper collectables which must have been on my craft desk at the time! I finished work early today and have taken some crafty things into the dining room to sit at for a while because finally the sun is out and streaming in the window. I have spent a lovely half hour sitting outside warming up and eating my lunch! til tomorrow…..

Go Press and Foil Card

_MG_1970 (Medium) I have another couple of Go Press and Foil cards to show, so this one today.. I used a kaisercraft embossing folder for the frame ( I have since mastered foiling with my embossing folders so that will be coming soon!) and foiled a todo sentiment stamp made especially for the foiling machine, trimmed it to fit into the frame, and added Green tara flowers,and a foiled chipboard butterfly. the greenery were die cuts on my desk, I have got into the habit when I am diecutting greenery and flourishes to cut a few extra so that I don’t have to stop and dig out dies when I am on a making streak. I have started on my Christmas cards at last, with some lovely new Kaisercraft christmas paper called Christmas Jewel. It has amazing shades of purple and lilac, and silver and I wasn’t going to purchase, but these cards are making themselves,easy paper to work with! til tomorrow….

_MG_9104 (Medium)Today is my Craft and Chat group get together, and the challenge set for todays get together was Christmas in July so I quickly whipped up a couple of cards in between class and cruise preparations to take with me . Here is the first one. The bird was a chipboard piece I found in the bottom of a drawer when I was looking for chipboard to try with my new Go Press and foil ( it foiled beautifully).I used  a whole layer of glitter cardstock on the background, and die cut a Paper Rose die in gold foil for the sentiment. The Holly is a kaisercraft die, and the stitched oval is a Paper Rose die. Little kaisercraft rhinestones for the holly berries. I have come up with all the card ideas needed for the cruise, now all that is left is to prepare all the kits. That will take quite some time with a lot of die cutting , embossing, and layers to cut.For now though I am off to gather some supplies to take with me to my craft group get together. Til tomorrow….

_MG_9103 (Medium)This is the final card I made the other day with my Go Press and Foil machine.I spent a lovely couple of hours the other night doing some more foiling so there will be more to come. I foiled the flourish and fussy cut around it, then glued it to white cardstock and embossed the whole sheet with a stampin up embossing folder. The butterfly is diecut in glitter card with a kaisercraft die. The chipboard leaf is foiled. Til tomorrow….

_MG_9098 (Medium)As you all know , I purchased a Go Press and Foil machine and have been practising with it. The upshot is I have a lot of foiled bits and pieces waiting to be made into cards! I sat down the other day and made a few, this is the first one…Stampin Up cardstock ( watermelon wonder I believe) for the card base, and the  Go Press and foils stamps for the ornate embossed background and the sentiment. some ribbon, a hand coiled flower ( also on my desk waiting for a project) some die cut greenery and flowers from Iamroses website. i have a few hours to myself today, so i am heading into the craft room with no plan..just going to see where the inspiration takes me! Til tomorrow….
