Today, I have a quick blog post using some decoupage sheets with a touch of mixed media - A bit of embossing paste , stamping and coloured inks around the background of my card to create texture and adding some decoupage images and cut leaf dies on top, these two cards were all  put together very quickly. 


Thanks for looking :)
















Cheers and big hugs, until next time

Decoupage & Modern Essential dies - Couture Creations

Hello everyone and welcome back to the Couture Creations Blog, Adriana here today with a very special collection of cards using one of the decoupage sheet from the Hobby Dot and Do's kits.... I have been a long time fan of decoupage images, love using them on my cards and projects.

The new release of Hobby Dot and Do's kits are fabulous card kits which are all available now from your local paper-craft store. All the materials required to create 3 beautiful cards are included in each kit.  
Today, I want to show you a different way or twist to the decoupage sheets that you can create different styles of cards with just the decoupage images from these kits (but you can use any decoupage sheets) teamed up with the fabulous Go Press and Foil Machine and one of the Modern Essential Cut, Foil and Emboss dies. 
CO726469 Decorative Nesting Panel cut, foil & emboss dies.




Using the pretty Petal Pink Foil CO725701 Pink Foil on Cream card-stock, the effect together created an awesome detailed background to the card.

The inner square was created with Gold Vintage Foil CO725355 withblack card-stock, very striking effect.  Placing my 3D Pushout decoupage sheets on top along with some leave diets in green card stock.





Here is another card using the same Modern Essentials die
CO726469 Decorative Nesting Panel cut, foil & emboss dies, together with Heat activated Yellow matte Gold Foil CO725354 - I little bit a green tones in this gold foil colour.







But for this card below
I created by background with stamping ink colour all over the background
of the Modern Essential Cut, Foil and Emboss dies, CO726469 Decorative Nesting Panel cut, foil & emboss dies. 

Gently placing this die and cardstock on my sandwich platform on my Go Cut and Emboss machine. The excellent versatility of these dies is that you can use your normal die cutting machine and no foiling required.

Modern Essential Cut, foil and emboss dies - Vintage Cards

Hi there and welcome back again  ...

Today, I have a decided to create two very vintage and elegant cards for the Couture Creations blog - using the release paper collection from

The "Butterfly Garden"  collection is a wonderful collection of papers, ephemera pack, dies and Hot-foil stamps. It has a very soft vintage feel so I decided to team it up with a vintage photo - the soft gold foiling just makes the card so pretty and vintage. Using the Modern Essential Nesting Cut, Foil and Emboss dies - I am so loving the combination (lovely)
