Nouveau Hot Foil Stamps - Couture Creations - Birthday cards

Hello there everyone,  Adriana here today and I have created two cards with one of the new and fabulous
Nouveau Hot foil, cut and emboss dies 
these are really so special that they Foil, Emboss and Die cut out - all once!!
Used in conjunction with the Go Press and Foil Machine and foils.
There are 9 special Hot Foil stamps/dies designs in the
 Nouveau Hot foil, cut and emboss dies collections.

Here are my two special birthday cards, one is 21st Birthday card and the other pretty Happy Birthday card.
I also foiled the numbers  "21" chipboards and two little hearts chipboard with Gold Foil.




I have chosen the gorgeous
CO725841 Bodice Cut and Foil Die




Together with the Go Press and Foil machine and a list of other Couture Creations products which are all listed at the end of this blog post.






I used brown card stock for my base card stock
and the CO725841 Bodice Cut and Foil Die together with the
CO725356 Gold Iridescent Speckled Foil - I love the effect this foil gives.






For my 21st Birthday card I created with the CO725841 Bodice Cut and Foil Die  and white card stock with a piece of CO725694 Rose Gold Foil.







Now the combination or sandwich required when using these special foil dies, is slightly different when placing them on your Go Press and Foil Machine

latest U tube video from Couture Creations below

"Thank You" - Everyday Sentiments Hot foil stamps

Hello there everyone,:)  and welcome back to my blog.
Today I am going to showcase one of the many new "Everyday Sentiments" range of Hot Foil stamps - which are available now from Couture Creations. There are 14 different word sentiments, I am just using one of them.

I have created two cards with the 
"THANK YOU" sentiment hot foil stamp CO725822 
together with the Go Press & Foil machine.






Both are slightly different but be sure to check out my video 
on how to do foil with the Go Press and Foil Machine and the Hot foil stamp. Check it out, and make sure you subscribe to my U tube channel for more informative videos and product demonstrations.

Materials Lists are at the end of the blog post.

Thank Card # 1





For this card, I simply foiled the word "Thank You"
and then adhered to the embossed card
with double sided foam tape.

Quick way to decorate your cards with
foiled sentiments




For my next card, once I foiled the sentiment
I cut around the word, then adhered it with foam tape on top
of my decoupage flowers.

Thank You card #2









Both are slightly different but be sure to check out my video on
how to just foil with hot foil stamps....
