Journey - Layout with Seaside & Me Collection

Hello there everyone,  Adriana  here today with a special blog post and also with another quick video using a couple of chipboards from the new release
SEASIDE & ME collection.
Today I will be highlighting these chipboards on a layout as well as using some of the dies and papers from this collection.




Foiling the chipboard is with conjunction of the
fabulous Go Press and Foil Machine and foils and the 
Go Press & Foil Metal shim plate CO725578

Please click on the link just below towards the end of this blog post  for the video and more close up photos of my layout - 

JOURNEY LAYOUT by Adriana Bolzon 
The photograph in my layout is of the beautiful harbour township of AKOROA in New Zealand - it is about 84 kms south east of Christchurch, in the South Island.  The town has British/French influence colonial buildings mostly built in the 19th Century. Some of the places and streets have French names. It was a very small township with so much history. The population is only around 700. This was our third port of call on our family cruise to New Zealand in January this year.  The harbour was so peaceful that day, the weather was cloudy and it did rain a little in the morning. Many boats were anchored in the harbour. The boat and jetty was near the small lighthouse on the left of the township. The tide was out for most of the morning - we saw starfish, many shells and seaweed all scattered on the rocky beach. 



Using the Rose Gold Vintage Foil CO725694 to foil the chipboards for my layout. I also used the 6x6 paper pad of papers from the wonderful collection.




I also created some flowers with the new 
Couture Creations- Foamiran White CO726143 adding some 
Couture Creations - Blue glitter powder and Crystallina Glitter Glue in the centre of each flower.



I am so loving this little crab die from the
Seaside & Me collection - CO726169 Decorative die 
together with the
Seaside & Me - Coral Reef Background Die CO726171
Seaside & Me - Branching Coral die CO726172

Nouveau Butterfly Card - Cut, Foil & Emboss Dies

Hello there everyone, today I have just some more quick cards again which have been created with the new and fabulous
Nouveau Hot foil, cut and emboss dies.

These dies are really so special that they 
Foil, Emboss and Die cut out - all once!!
There are 9 special Hot Foil stamps/dies designs in the collection.
It is the next generation of hot foil stamping which they will cut and foil and emboss all the same time. Today I will be playing with the 
Nouveau - Hanging Cage cut, foil and emboss die CO725846
Nouveau -  Butterfly cut, foil & emboss die CO725847
Nouveau - Sweeping Flourish cu, foil & Emboss die CO725842


And here is my first card, using the gorgeous Phantom Purple Foil, I foiled with the beautiful Nouveau Butterfly with Mirror Silver board card stock, love the effect of the silver and purple foil together.










Material list
Nouveau Hanging Sweeping Flourish cut and foil die CO725842
Nouveau Butterfly cut and foil die CO725847
Phantom Purple FOIL CO725704
Rose Gold FOIL CO725694
C'est la vie Embossing folder Ferns CO725767
C'est la vie paper pad CO725737
Mirror foil card stock A4 Silver lines CO724506


And here is my second card a
Happy Birthday card... foiled with Gold yellow matte finish FOIL CO725354 using the Nouveau Hanging Cage cut and foil die.




Material list
Nouveau - Hanging Cage cut and foil die CO725846
Gold yellow matte finish FOIL  CO725354
C'est La Vie paper collection and dies
C'est La Vie - Paper CO725737
C'est La Vie Frame Decorative Die CO725760
C'est La Vie - Flourished Corner Die CO725755
C'est La Vie - Geraniums Layered Die Set CO725765


When creating with the Go Press & Foil Machine and the Nouveau Cut and foil dies you must have a Metal Conversion Plate - this is a much thicker metal plate. The thickness of the Metal Conversion plate will allow the Nouveau cut and dies actually cut, foil and emboss all at the same time.

Now the combination or sandwich required when using these special foil dies, is slightly different when placing them on your Go Press and Foil Machine.
