Valentine's Day Cards

Hi there everyone, Today is Happy Valentine's Day!!!
Happy Valentine's Day to you all...


To celebrate this day, I have created two very vintage lovely cards 
with the new release "C'EST LA VIE" from Couture Creations. 
Together with the Couture Creations
 "Go, Press and Foil" machine, for some adding touch of vintage foiling..this machine just adds the little extra touch of elegance to any project.




"I Love you" card
I created my first card with a selection of papers from the
C'est La Vie collection together with the Go Press & Foil machine and the
C'est La Vie Intricate Frame Hot foil stamp CO725752, I created the foiled frame, for the centre of my card.



I think this foiled frame can could be used for any occasion.
Once I created the foiled frame, I cut it out and placed it in the centre of my card.



Adding some layered hearts in the centre
and a stamped sentiment "I LOVE YOU",  simple and effective.
adding a trinket from the
C'est La Vie Trinket set CO725776
on the ribbon bow.


For my next card "You are LOVELY" I created the background using the 
C'est La Vie - Ferns Embossing folder C0725767 together with the
Go Press & Foil machine to create a raised and foiled background,
It has a very distress vintage finish to it, which I just love.




Using the New release 
Everyday Sentiments Hot foil stamp,
"You are LOVELY" CO725823




Adding  a cluster of flowers on the side of the card, which I created with one of the images from the
C'est La Vie - Light Rose decoupage sheet - C0725741 



I trimmed off all the white space around the decoupage image and trim off some of the leaves and added it under the pink rose.



I created a ribbon bow and added one of the gorgeous trinket from the
C'est La Vie Trinket set CO725776.




I hope you have a lovely day, until next time,
Thanks and big hugs

Take a walk into my Garden !! -- C'est La Vie collection


Hi there everyone
thanks for stopping by here today.
 I am so excited to be sharing a special project that I have created
with the new release
"C'EST LA VIE" from Couture Creations.

I have created a framed canvas using some of the dies and chipboard pieces from the "C'est La vie" collection, together with some gesso and of course, some gold foiling with the Go Press and Foil Machine.  I had some much fun playing with the mix media elements; Anna Griffin Gesso and Embossing Pastes, all of which are available from Couture Creations. 
So, let's go for a walk into my garden!!


I purchased a white light weight 8" x 10" ornate frame from a cheap/dollar shop and rubbed some gold wax around the ornate elements of the edges, 
to distress the frame.
Using a canvas board to create my masterpiece, I firstly created a background with
Anna Griffin White Gesso CO724871 and 
Anna Griffin Embossing Paste CO724870 
together with paint, inks and fibres to create a garden bed, the blue sky and a garden path which leads to the beautiful Gazebo.



Using the fabulous Go Press & Foil CO725032 machine together with Gold foils, I foiled the chipboards from the collection.
I think they look fabulous!

C'est La Vie Hive of Bees chipboards CO725911
C'est la Vie word chipboard CO725917


C'est La VieGazebo decorative die CO725763



To create a bit a texture on the 
C'est La Vie Wrought Iron Gate chipboard CO725919, 
I embossed the chipboards gates with a combination of layers with the
Mirror Gold Embossing powder CO724970
Turquoise Super Sparkles Embossing powder CO724993


Love the cute - C'est La Vie French Bicycle decorative die CO725762


Using the decorative dies
C'est La Vie Geraniums layered die set CO725765
C'est La Vie Collection of Ferns die CO725764
to create a clusters of flowers for the top and bottom of the framed canvas.



I hope you have enjoyed my project for today.
Thanks and big hugs
Adriana XX

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.
