Go Press and Foil Christmas

_MG_2628 (Medium)

Some Kaisercraft Christmas Jewel paper collection today, and an experiment using a Go Press and Foils stamp on patterned paper. it worked a treat, and I will be doing this a lot more!The background papers are from the 12 x 12 papers in the Kaisercraft Christmas jewel collection, and I foiled a lovely purple foil onto the patterned paper for the sentiment. a matching collectable and ribbon bow to complete a very simple Christmas card. i have been foiling this morning…. I have been die cutting my own chipboard pieces and foiling them. The secret is in getting the shim correct. I have found that using a piece of the chipboard cardboard is just the right thickness for a shim on my die cutting machine, but everyone’s die cutting machine is different depending on how loose it is so experimentation is essential. If your first run through is patchy, you need a thicker shim and you can just foil over the top with another piece of foil.Til tomorrow…..

Final 2 Christmas jewel..double z fold

_MG_4602 (Medium)_MG_4603 (Medium)Here are the final two Kaisercraft Christmas Jewel cards, done in a double z-fold design. Both cards make use of the 6″ pad for the layering and the matching collectables for the embellishing. These were truly qucik and easy cards to make! i finished work at lunch time today, and I saw the sun peeking through so I grabbed my lunch and went and sat out in the garden for a little while and it was lovely! the sun has gone back in and so I have I, now I am going to head to the craft room for a couple of hours end of week relaxing!

Kaisercraft Christmas Jewel number 7

_MG_4599 (Medium) Another card using the scraps from Kaisercraft Christmas Jewel collection. The music notes are from a little box of kaisercraft wooden flourishes and I silver foiled them with the Go Press and Foil machine. Very quick post this morning as it’s Fathers day here and I am off to see my Dad! Til tomorrow….

Kaisercraft Christmas Jewel number 6…

_MG_4598 (Medium)I covered my base card with a piece of Kaisercraft Christmas jewel 12 x 12 paper -this particular paper was silver embossed with lots of seasonal words, so didn’t need too much decorating… so I just added a die cut circle ( in gorgeous purple glitter cardstock) a collectable from the pack, and a Kaisercraft wooden flourish which i embossed with mu Go PressĀ  and foil machine. The sentiment is from the sticker sheet from the same collection and I mounted it on some white cardstockĀ  and popped on the card with foam pads. Today I picked up my new kaisercraft christmas collection called Letters to Santa, and I have spent a lovely afternoon fussy cutting lots of pieces ready for more Christmas cards. Til tomorrow…..

Kaisercraft Christmas jewel number 5

_MG_4597 (Medium)Todays card is interesting because it uses some of the strips of offcuts from papers from the 6″ pad used on other cards. A great way to use up scraps. The decoration is from the kaisercraft christmas Jewel collection, and the greeting is from the sticker sheet and layered onto more scrap paper. I love the colours of this papr collection, and today we got in the september Kaisercraft releases which are both Christmas paper collections and I love the red/green vintage collection so that will be my buy for this month! Til tomorrow….

Kaisercraft Christmas Jewel number 4

_MG_4596 (Medium)Kaisercraft Christmas jewel collection..a piece of the 12 x 12 paper, and some collectables make an easy card today! The star in the centre of the Poinsetta is a piece from the kaisercraft chipboard pieces which I foiled. Today was a short day at work, and it is bitterly cold outside, so I am going to have something warm for lunch, and do a little bit of work on the cruise cards…Til tomorrow….

_MG_4595 (Medium)Carrying on with my Kaisercraft Christmas Jewel series, this one is really simple, with a piece of the 6″ pad with the deer image printed on it layered onto white cardstock, a sentiment from the matching sticker sheet, a matching collectable and 2 kaisercraft chipboard pieces which I foiled with my Go Press and Foil machine with silver foil. Today is the gathering of our Craft and chat group.
