Go Press and Foil Card

Leave a comment

_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_9105 (Medium)_MG_9106 (Medium)Here are the other two cards I made for my group Christmas in July challenge..I hadn’t been out to the Craft room annex ( shed) for my Christmas stash so really used what was to hand in the craft room, and I had been making lessons with some Kaisercraft dies, and I always have a bit of glitter paper in the craft room.  The stitched oval is a Paper Rose die, and I die cut the bauble on the top card and foiled it through the Go Press and Foil machine as I was experimenting with that new toy at the time. The rest was just assorted bling on my desk. Its a lazy kind of afternoon this afternoon after a busy morning at work, and I am going to have a bit of a sit down with a good book today! Til tomorrow….

IMG_5483 (Medium)

A couple of months ago kaisercraft brought out a new range of baby paper called Pitter Patter. It is gorgeous, and can be used for more than just baby cards, but I started off making a few baby boy cards with with it and this one is the first. I used a piece of patterned paper from the 6″ pad, and some of the matching collectables. I inked all my edges with Stampin up ink – Pool party, and added 2 white ribbon bows. Til tomorrow…..

There is a Cheery Lyn tropical flourish tucked in the back, and i added some ribbon, and lots of bling!The colours in this paper range are beautiful and rich, and a nice change from pink for Female style cards!I had a lovely day at paper flourish today, teaching my Mature ladies – lots of giggles which is always fun, but it’s back to work tomorrow, so an early night for me tonight… Til tomorrow…

Todays card is a Christmas card,using Stampin UP Elegant Bird Die, and some scraps of paper. The glitter paper that I used on the birds wing is from Stampin Up, and I have been thinking and thinking trying to remember where I cut the word peace from, and I think I must have done it on my Cricut machine although if I remember differently I will let you all know!Quick post today, as it’s shopping night – Til tomorrow….

To finish off my Graphic 45 Christmas Emporium series I have put up the last four cards so that tomorrow we can look at something non – christmassy! These cards are so simple – just lots of images from the papers , a bit of fussy cutting and layering, and added interest with the ribbon, craftworks candi,lace , rhinestones and kindglitz. I have been quite busy in the carft room over the last couple of days, and will have to get nathan busy with the camera tomorrow.I am on holidays for a couple of weeks, and I really want to finish off some paper collections to make room fro the gorgeous Kaisercraft that is coming out over the next couple of months ( I was lucky and had a sneak peek!)Til tomorrow….

Graphic 45 Christmas Emporium 7 and 8

Leave a comment

Graphic 45 Christmas Emporium patterned paper – the card on the right is self explanitory,the image takes up the whole of my card front, so didn’t need much else. The card on left, is another story… I used an EK Success punch,some ribbon and trim and craftworks candi. The Die Cut in the centre is a neat little stampin Up die which opens to reveal another image inside. I don’t actually have this die set, we got to play with it at the stampin up convention Kay kindly invited me along to in May, but it is on my wish list!I have been creating up a storm today in the craft room, and I am going back there after this to continue a few projects I have left to dry.. Til tomorrow….
