Perfectly foiled cards - Esthetica Collection - Couture Creations

Hello everyone, Adriana here today to share with you my two cards that I have created with the Couture Creations new release 
Esthetica Cut, Foil and Emboss dies. 

These Esthetica dies all cut and emboss all the same time, they are so elegant and easy to create with or without the foiling machine.

I have created a video to show you all how to use these dies along with some techniques and tips. I try to keep my videos to under 7 mins in time, giving you the insight of technique creating my projects.

So here is my first card,

Happy Birthday card by Adriana Bolzon


 

Using the Esthetica Cut, Foil & Emboss die 
Nesting Flutterby Frames CO726760 with Vintage Gold foiling on Green card stock.

The foiled butterflies are from the set of the 
MODERN ESSENTIALS - Cut, Foil & emboss die (just the butterfly) Decorative Nesting butterfly die CO726467










For my second card I used the same Cut foil & emboss frame but the inside flowers are from another die set, the
Esthetica Cut, Foil & Emboss die Nesting Magnolia Frames CO726759

All the Best - card by Adriana Bolzon



The flowers were created with the flower die from the
Esthetica Cut, Foil & Emboss die Nesting Magnolia Frames CO726759 set,
using the Go Press and foil machine and Clear Pearlised heat activated foil
CO725388, then I coloured the flowers with water colour pencils and inks.
I have a video link at the end of this blog post on how I made them.

Timeless Card - Gentleman's Emporium collection

Hi there and welcome back again...

Today, I have an easel card created with the new release paper collection from Couture Creations Gentleman's Emporium
the papers are designed by Denise Boddey.
Creating my card was so easy with some of the hot-foil stamps team together with the GoPress and Foil machine. My card has a with a bit of a twist, even though these papers are very masculine, I decided to create a very feminine easel card. With touches of foiling elements - I do love the black card with gold foiling elements - 



Timeless  by Adriana Bolzon




Adding some foiled butterflies and flowers cluster for a nice final touch.




Using the Gentleman's Emporium Papers and hot foil stamps, a list is detailed at the end of the this post.

I created the easel card with white card stock.
Adding some papers from the Gentleman's collection
Matting all the papers on Black card stock.






I cut 4 of the mini die square Gentleman's corner die CO726834 with Mirror Gold matte gold board card stock, gluing two on the bottom of the front of the card and two on the bottom of the flat side of card. 

Using the Go Press and Foil machine to hot foil the Gentleman's Emporium Celebrate Tag Cut, foil and emboss die CO726855, I foiled two of these elements.

Remember to place the Metal Conversion Plate on the platform of the Go Press and foil machine, before foiling with the black card stock. As these dies that Cut, Foil and Emboss need the added pressure to be able to cut through the card stock.

Moment in time - layout - Gentleman's Emporium collection

Hi there and welcome back, Adriana here today with another layout using the new release paper collection from Couture Creations Gentleman's Emporium
the papers are designed by Denise Boddey.

Here is a sneaky peaky ....




This time instead of foiling the Gentleman's Emporium CO726854 PocketWatch Cut , Foil and Emboss die, I actually inked the whole die and ran it through my die cutting machine. If you have a die cutting machine you can use these Cut and Emboss dies wiht inks, how cool is that. They will cut and emboss all at the same time.
I created several of these and some I cut in half, tucking them under the photograph. I have created a video at the end of this blog post on how to create this cut out pocket watches... check it ..




Here is my layout - the photograph was taken in Germany
Just outside the village town square. 




But firstly I started with the
Gentleman's Emporium 12 x 12 paper CO726825 and stamped randomly around the page and around the edges with the Gentleman's Emporium Ornate mini stamp CO726840, using a brown ink colour pad.




Then I cut out most of the elements tags from the 
Gentleman's Emporium 12 x 12 paper. CO72682.
Then I inked around the edges and placed them behind my matted photograph and also side the photograph.






I embossed the Gentleman's Emporium Filigree Corner chipboard CO726866 with Couture Creations Chunky Cooper embossing powder. Love the distressed look of this, I added this to the top and bottom of my layout.





Adding some foliage, string and flower cluster for additional texture.
