Moment in Time layout - Couture Creations

Hi everyone welcome back and thanks for stopping by, it's Adriana here today.

For today, I have created a layout using two papers and chipboards from the 
CO726775 Parquet Tiles die
 to create a stencil for the background of my layout and also incorporating two die cuts to my layout . These dies are fabulous for card backgrounds but also thinking outside the square - you can create wonderful backgrounds with the die cuts for other projects. 

Adding some touches of foiling on the special released chipboards from the Gentleman's Emporium collection (unfortunately these chipboards are only available in Australia) Foiling onto chipboard is so so easy with the Go Press and foil machine. So here is my step by step instructions and details are below: List of products are listed at the end of this post.

Moment in Time layout by Adriana Bolzon
The photo is of my Nephew when he was a toddler. He is a bit cute, I think so :)

1. Trim down 1.25 cm around only on two side of the paper CO726821, ink edges with blue ink, adhere onto the centre of Denim Card stock.

2. Cut one Gentleman Crafter Cut, Foil and Emboss background CO726775 Parquet Tiles die with white card stock, through die cutting machine, this will be acting like a stencil.

3. Using a sponge dauber ink randomly around the centre of the layout with blue and dark brown ink.

4. Stamp randomly with the Gentleman's Emporium Ornate Icon Mini stamp CO726840 with brown ink pad on layout. Stamp randomly with script word stamp, as well.

5. Mat photograph with grey card stock and brown card stock. Cut cards from the Gentleman Emporium paper CO726823. 

6. With a white ink pigment ink stamp the whole Gentleman Crafter Cut, Foil and Emboss background CO726775 Parquet Tiles die, place through die cutting machine with a piece of Endless Dusk card stock - repeat process again to achieve 2 parquet tiles die cuts, I love the effect that instead of foiling these dies, stamping can achieve a different and unique result as well.  

7. Adhere all die cuts and matted photograph and papers, on the layout as shown below.

8. Foil all chipboard pieces with the Go Press and Foil machine and Copper Heat Activated Foil CO725697 and Champagne Mirror foil CO725695, Placing a Metal Shim on the platform of the Go Press and Foil machine.

just a reminder for those who don't know how to.

Turn machine on
Open Lid
Place Metal Shim on platform of machine
Place cut foil colour side down (copper foil)
Place chipboards on top
Place a paper shim over the chipboard and foil for protection of the lid.
Close lid and let it heat for 30-40 seconds
Wind slowly the platform through and back in your die cutting machine.


9. Adhere all foiled elements as shown in photograph.
Decorate with leaves, flowers as shown in photograph.
