Leave a comment

_MG_4594 (Medium)It is my mums birthday, and this is the card I have made for her, although to be completely open and honest, once this photo was taken I added a couple more flowers ( in white) in the left hand bottom corner!It is all done with my Go Press and Foil machine,including the foiled embossed background. The butterfly is foiled on acetate, and I foiled the sentiment as well. a bit of layering and lace, ribbon and flowers and this one is ready for giving to Mum today. Yesterday was spentĀ  ( after a two hour trip to Bunnings to purchase various garden items for Nathan and house paint for me) in the craft room preparing all of June lessons. Glad they are organised because I really have to concentrate on the craft fair in June now. I am looking forward to an enjoyable afternoon at Paper Flourish ( where our on line shop goes live on Tuesday!) with my craft and chat group. til tomorrow…..

_MG_4261 (Medium)Todays card is a very simple elegant card made with just a couple of products. The background paper is My Minds Eye In Bloom and I made the rose with my Go Press and foil machine and an Ana Griffin foil stamp, which I then die cut with an oval die. A black lace bow and that is finished!We have a very hot day today, a bit cooler tomorrow though so that will be a craft day for me while I think about some classes for March!

_MG_0632 (Medium)For todays card I die cut a birdcage out of chipboard from a very old sizzix die that I had. I tried foiling normal cardstock but it is just a little too thin and requires lots and lots of shims, so I decided chipboard is the way to go!. I also foiled a kaisercraft bird wooden piece. The butterfly is just punched out of some foil cardstock I had.I die cut memory box lorelia leaf die, and added some flowers and a ribbon bow . The background papers are from kaisercraft Rose Avenue. Today is Nathans birthday so we are off out to celebrate! til tomorrow…..

_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…..

_MG_9102 (Medium)I do like an all white card, and this one has pops of gold all created with my Go Press and Foil machine. I foiled the sentiment, and some chipboard, added an embossed background, and added a couple of flowers and flourishes. We had an early trip to the airport this morning to pick up my son Daniel who is home from Sydney for a holiday, so i may be a little sporadic posting this week. Til tomorrow…..
