Vintage style Cards

Hi there everyone, thanks for stopping by here today, 
Today I have created some vintage cards using a few different products from my craft things at home together using the Go Press and foil machine  CO725334 and an Anna Griffin hotplate Curling Frame C0725295 to create a foiled background to the cards.

I created the background of these cards with the Go Press and foil Machine and foils and then added some vintage images, flowers, images and ribbons from some of my bits and pieces that I had in my craft room. It's amazing when you use up all those bit and pieces that you purchase from time to time.

Hope this inspires you to give this a go!!!

Elegant Ritzy Card - The Ritz collection

Hi everyone. :)  today Its my turn to be featured on the Couture Creations blog. 
 I have been playing with the awesome   
 latest paper collection designed by Sue Smyth "THE RITZ" collection
available from Artdeco - Couture Creations - Ultimate Crafts

Today,  I have created a very elegant and wonderful card with images towards the back of the Paper pad, "Evening Cocktail" 12x12 Paper Pad" along with the 
Go Press, Foil & Machine by Couture Creations,  and some of the hotfoil stamps
and decorative dies from THE RITZ collection.

Here is my card with a step by step picture process of this card.

The elegant lady image is from one of the back pop out pages from the 
Ultimate Crafts The Ritz Collection - Evening Cocktail 12x12 paper pad ULT157822

I added a touch of Pale Pink and Strawberry Surprise coloured card stock to all the gold, white and black that is in the paper collection. 
I think added some colour to these papers just adds a finishing touch.















I embossed a piece of Ultimate Crafts Fairy Wings cardstock ULT200079 with the Ultimate Crafts The Ritz -Rose Trellis Embossing folder ULT157837




Gently rubbing a little of the 2 way glue over the raised embossed image, when slightly dry rub a little of leftover gold foil over to give a very distress look to the embossed card stock. I do love this distress effect and a great idea in using leftover foils.




Layering  all the cardstock and papers as below.



Cut out and pop out the images as shown below and cut 2 Deco Feather die cuts with Black card stock and
Ultimate Crafts - Decorative Die The Ritz Deco Feather ULT157853
adhering some Ultimate Crafts Fairy Wings ULT200079 Card stock in the centre of framed image.




Using the Couture Creations Gold Matte Vintage Gold Foil CO725355
together with Go Press, Foil & Machine by Couture Creations, 
and the TODO Fronds and Flourish hot foil stamp CNCP0516
Hot foil and cut out this foiled image and place on the card sideways





TIPS FOR FOILING CHIPBOARD with the Go Press & Foil Machine.

1. Place a Metal plate shim on Hot plate of the Go Press & Foil Machine
2. Place a piece of foil down on the metal shim - colour faced down.
3. Place chipboard on top of foil, place a piece of card stock on top of the foil to cover it, place the lid of the Go Press & Foil machine down.
4. When ready - Slowing sliding the platform through your die cutting machine as per your instruction book - on how to use your Go Press & Foil machine.





I adhered the Ultimate Crafts The Ritz - Cubic Corners chipboards ULT158352 on the top of each corner of the card after I foiled them.



I decorated the rest of card with flowers ribbons and lace on the bottom of card.
