_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_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….

IMG_7153I just had to show you all what i have been playing with today! I thought I had better learn how to use my new Go Press and Foil,so after foiling the stamps/dies that i bought when i bopught the machine, I had some scraps of foil left on the table. What to foil? Chipboard pieces that I had collected over the years! I have lots! So they are out on the table, and when ever I have finished foiling I will be using the scraps to decorate them, and now I might actually use them. It is almost more fun foiling the chipboard! Anyway that is what i am up to this afternoon, til tomorrow…..
