Thank You - Easel card - Modern Essentials Dies - Couture Creations

Hello everyone, Welcome back, today I have created another card using the new release Couture Creations
  "Modern Essentials"     -  Cut, foil and emboss dies. 

This time I created an Easel card using one of the Nesting Frames, in particular the Cut Foil and Emboss Nesting Bracket frames CO726459.
I just love how these dies can be used just with your normal die cutting machine, with no foiling. This shape is so versatile as well.

I also created this panel using a die with the Go Press and Foil machine and of course, gold foil. The end result is an outline of the die design onto the card stock.

Modern Essential Cut, Foil & Emboss Dies - Couture Creations

Hello everyone, and welcome to my blog - today I wanted to share some cards that I  have created with the 
Couture Creations  "Modern Essentials" Cut, foil and emboss die frames.

These dies can be used with the Go Press and Foil Machine to achieve the foiled edges around the shape, but they can also be used in your normal manual die cutting machine. Of course, you will not get the foiled edges but if you stamp ink around the edges of these dies and place them through your die cut machine, you will get a cut out piece ready to play with and create your project.

As in the care below I stamped the edges of the ornate frame with Pigment Purple ink and run it through my die cutting machine.





I used the Scalloped Oval die and foiled the edges with the Go Press and Foil Machine.




Here is another card below using the same die with the all the three pieces Foiled with the Go Press and Foil machine.

Layout - Le Petit Jardin

Hello everyone Adriana here today and welcome back to the 
Couture Creations blog - 
Today I have created a layout, using the amazing  
collection "Le Petit Jardin"

In 2015, my family were very lucky to travel to Europe and we did a Cruise on the Mediterranean Ocean. One port of call was "Valletta" in Malta.  This place was amazing, so much history and stories of ancient ruins.  I would love to go back to this place and explore more of it.  It a photo of myself was taken on the ship looking over the harbour of Valetta.

Here is my layout...... a very simple and effect layout using a couple of the 
"Le Petit Jardin" papers and ephemera pack.















Using just two papers from the collection
and ephemera set you can create a wonderful layout - very simple but effective.
