The Kaisercraft Miss Betty collection worked perfectly as a double zigzag card,and here are two that I made with this collection. I used a mix of 12 x 12 papers, some papers from the 6″ pad and the matching collectables. On the top card i made the most of my lace, ribbon and flowers whereas on the lower card I only added a little ribbon and a few sequins. I had a great day yesterday playing with my new Go Press and Foil cut, foil and emboss dies, here is a selection of completed cards!
While I had my Go press and foil machine out I foiled a few extra pieces to have on hand on my desk so you will see bits popping up on other random cards, but this card was all Go Press and Foil. I used the big go press and foil stamp ( its called a stamp but is actually a metal plate) to foil the aqua background and fussy cut out the centre and around the outside. I gold foiled a happy birthday chipboard piece from Dusty Attic, and the little wooden bird by Kaisercraft. The Green foiled foliage is a wooden piece by kaisercraft and I added some gorgeous flowers from Iamroses. Today is a public holiday here and I am making good use of the day off to try and clear my desk, where random projects have been started and left there! Til tomorrow….
For todays card I die cut a birdcage out of chipboard from a very old sizzix die that I had. I tried foiling normal cardstock but it is just a little too thin and requires lots and lots of shims, so I decided chipboard is the way to go!. I also foiled a kaisercraft bird wooden piece. The butterfly is just punched out of some foil cardstock I had.I die cut memory box lorelia leaf die, and added some flowers and a ribbon bow . The background papers are from kaisercraft Rose Avenue. Today is Nathans birthday so we are off out to celebrate! til tomorrow…..
I have started to experiment a little bit with my Go Press and foil now that I have mastered the basics, and the first thing i wanted to try was die cutting my own chipboard shapes. I have used a thin piece of chipboard here, and used a Kaisercraft dress form die. I used the instruction book and followed the instructions for bought chipboard shapes, and found I just had to add an extra shim – I dint have any waste though, I just ran it through again with some more foil to cover the patches! For the rest of the card i used a Kaisercraft embossing folder, and Kaisercraft Rose Avenue paper ( from a piece of the 12 x 12 paper). Some flowers, lace and ribbon to finish! Til tomorrow….
