Bohemian Bouquet Foiled Cards

Hi there and welcome, Adriana here today and I have created two cards using products from the 
Ultimate Crafts - Bohemian Bouquet 
Artdeco Creations - Couture Creations collection ,

Together with the hot foil stamps and dies from this collection and 
with the fabulous  Go Press, Foil & Machine by Couture Creations,  
you can achieve so many wonderful layers and different results.

Here is my card for today, the list of all the products I have used to create this card is listed on the bottom of this post.

"LOVE" card by Adriana Bolzon







Using the ULT158083 Bohemian Bouquet - 
Blooming Flower hot foil stamp together with the 
Go Press and Foil Machine 


Cutting a piece of 
Couture Creations CO725359 Pink mirror foil 
for the flower part of the 
ULT158083 Bohemian Bouquet Blooming Flower hot foil stamp
and a piece of the Couture Creations CO725391 Green Mirror Foil 
over the
bottom part or the leaf part of the hot foil stamp.





The finished result is the foil flower in Pink foil 

and the leaves foiled in green foil.



I created two of these foiled flowers, colouring the flowers and stems with watercolour pencils. 
Adding some Couture Creations Glitinz Glitter Crystallina CO721971 
over the coloured parts of the flower. 
Once coloured, I cut them both out and adhering them on to the 
card with double sided foam tape.

I also hot foiled the
ULT158081 Bohemian Bouquet Background hot foil stamp with 
Matte Rose Gold Foil C0725694 on to white card stock, cutting around it gently and placed this foiled background underneath my foiled/coloured flowers, for a cool background effect.



(Keep the leftover foil for the second technique and card)





Cutting a ULT158055 Bohemian Bouquet Wrought Iron Frame die with
CO725407 Couture Creations Gold Mirror Board 



also cutting out the word "LOVE" from the one of the sheets from the
ULT158030 Bohemian Bouquet 12 x 12 paper pad


Adhering these together on the bottom of the card.




"LOVE" card by Adriana Bolzon




for my second card, cut a piece of adhesive from the
Ultimate Crafts -DIE CUT AND BOND tape ULT157644
and adhere this to a piece of card stock.
Peel the protective sheet off and place the foiled piece on top of the
sticky side of the Adhesive tape. 
Gently rubbing all the gold foil onto the sticky card stock. 
(this is the left over foiled piece of foil - the one I used to create the above card)





Gently peel the foil sheet off the, the foil now should be stuck to the
adhesive tape, just trim around the edges.




Cut a piece of
CO7256792 Blue Sea Foil, gently place on top of  
the parts that have no gold foil, these are actually
still tacky and once you place your blue foil on top, 
gently rub over it and peel it away. 



The blue foil will adhere to the exposed adhesive .






This is finished effect - I used this foiled decorated piece as a background for my second card.

Happy Birthday card - Couture Creations

Hi there and welcome, hope you are all enjoy the summer holidays. Here in Australia the weather is quite hot and we are enjoying the time with family and friends.
Today I have another a card using products from the Ultimate Crafts - Bohemian Bouquet Artdeco Creations - Couture Creations collection , this collection has been designed by Denise Boddey.

Along with the hot foil stamps and dies from this collection also with the fabulous  Go Press, Foil & Machine by Couture Creations,  you can achieve so many wonderful results. 
Using the ULT158076 Bohemian Bouquet Jungle Background die for my background - but in a different way - using the die with the 
Go Press and foil Machine you can Create a unique background.

Did you know that you can use your normal dies to create backgrounds with foils and then if you like to add any mixed media inks or colour to your projects.
Here is my card for today, the list of all the products I have used to create this card is listed on the bottom of this post.

"Happy Birthday" card by Adriana Bolzon






The background is created firstly with the
ULT158076 Bohemian Bouquet Jungle Background die and
Couture Creations CO725359 Pink mirror foil 
along with the
Couture Creations - Go Press and Foil machine.

Place your normal die on the platform of the Go Press and Foil Machine.
Place a piece of coloured foil on top on die (colour side down)
Place your card stock top
Once the Go press & foil is heated
Roll the platform through your die cutting machine.






The end result is a fine foiled image -  
below here I used different colour foils and card stock.




Once foiled, I inked a few different colour inks all over the foiled image.



Cutting  one of the ULT158078 Bohemian Bouquet Stained Glass Doily die with
Couture Creations CO725410 Gold Matte Mirror Board card stock 
and adhered to the middle of card, placing a piece of
thick foam tape underneath.

Adding a ribbon and pearl trim as shown below.




Using the Go Press and foil machine and
ULT158096 Classic sentiment "Happy Birthday" hot foil stamp 
with 
Couture Creations CO725355 Vintage Gold Matte foil, then
matting this on blue card stock.



A quick and effective background for all your cards.
