Peace on Earth Christmas Card by COLLETTE MITREGA

#artdecocreations   #couturecreationsaus    #ultimatecrafts  
Hi Papercrafters!

Today I have a lovely white and gold Christmas card with a beautiful foiled sentiment "Peace on Earth'!

I love this message, it says so much about how so many of us feel ..... if only!!

I started by creating a 4" x 6" card.

I then embossed a 3 1/4" wide x 2 1/2" x 5 1/2" tall piece of white card with the beautiful 'First Snow' embossing folder. I love this folder and find my self using it regularly!

Next I foil embossed a piece of 2 1/2 " x 3" wide piece of white cardstock with  'Peace of Earth" foil stamp and my Go Press and Foil Machine.

Finally I cut two pieces of matte gold mirror board, 3.5" wide x 5.5" tall and the second at 3 3 1/8" wide and 2 3/4" tall. 

I then attached all the layers to my card base.

Next I die cut the Poinsettia Flower and Christmas flourish in mat gold paper and attached to by card. I decided not to add the beautiful branches this time, and to keep the card 'clean' and uncluttered.

Finally I finished my card with some flowers and tiny red rhinestones for a pop of Christmas colour.

Go on, have a go and create this or something similar for the festive season, it really is a 'quickie' but looks for elegant and pretty don't you think?


ULT200001 Snow White Cardstock

Joyous Christmas Cards by ANITA ENRIGHT

#artdecocreations   #couturecreationsaus    #ultimatecrafts  

Hi Guys,

I have really enjoyed playing with the GoPress and Foil machine and have created many Christmas cards.  As much as I love traditional Christmas colours I also love the new brights that we are starting to see more and more of out and about.

Today I have two cards that I recently taught in a class setting, helping to get new owners of the foiling machine acquainted with it and hopefully 'wetting their appetite' for more.


My JOY  card used the stunning bright rose gold foil. 

 To create the background for my card I used some of the Anna Griffin Embossing Paste from Couture Creations and one of the stencils. I have to say that the embossing paste is my favourite from the mixed media collection as it dries so quickly and has a wonderful fluffy texture.  

Once dry, normally around two hours, I then added the foil.  Just be careful because if you foil it too soon without the paste setting properly the heat from the GoPress and Foil machine with 'squish' the embossing paste flat and you will lose the nice details of the stencil.

The 'JOY' decorative die is from the Let Every Day Be Christmas range and mounted on 3D foam dots,  and the doily is from the Bohemian Bouquet collection. 

I added some white seam binding along with a fabric flower and a 
few baubles and the card was done. 


For the Merry Christmas card I decided to use the green mirror finish foil.
I used the Couture Creations A6 white card bases to create the card, adding a card front in a piece of cardstock from my stash to match my chosen foil. Next I cut down a piece of white card and using the Holly Frame decorative die, hotfoiled the die onto the white card.  
I chose the Merry Christmas hotfoil stamp from the It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas collection and hotfoiled it on to a piece of white card, snipped in the right side of the card and then mounted it on to another piece of the green cardstock.  Using the Holly decorative die I cut two out with my GoCut and Emboss machine.

 The Merry Christmas tag that I made to get the curl in it I adhered it using a hot glue gun, adding my holly diecuts to the left side.  Finally I added some organza ribbon, a contrasting pink flower and then added the 2mm gemstones to points on the holly branch die that I hotfoiled.

"Journey" layout by ADRIANA BOLZON

#artdecocreations   #couturecreationsaus    #ultimatecrafts  

Hi there, Adriana here and today I have created a layout using the new release Ultimate Crafts - Bohemian Bouquet from Artdeco Creations - Couture Creations designed by talented Denise Boddey

In this collection there are 12x12 paper pads & 6X6 paper pads, stunning and fancy dies and also a few new hot foil stamps that can be used together 
with the GoPress & Foil Machine by Couture Creations,  
These are fabulous too !!! So, Here is my layout

" Journey " layout by Adriana Bolzon

Firstly, I stamped around the edges of my background card stock with the solid flower stamp from the
Ultimate Crafts - Bohemian Bouquet 
"Flowers in her hair" stamp set ULT158041

Using the Ultimate Crafts - Bohemian Bouquet 
Field of daisies stencil  ULT158038

together with the Couture Creations
Anna Griffin Embossing Paste CO724870
I spread the paste over the stencil
and then sprinkled some gold glitter over it and using a heat gun to set it dry.

Using the 2 sheets of the 
6x6 paper pad of 
Bohemian Bouquet ULT158031

I created a paper side panel on my page.

Cutting two of the Bohemian Bouquet Corner die ULT158054
and placing them on each of the left hand side , top and bottom of page.

Cut one of the Bohemian Bouquet Totem die ULT158059, 
cutting in half and adhering it under my photograph.

Adding a Bohemian Bouquet Teardrop Jewel Die ULT158057
and two Bohemian Bouquet Burling Florette die ULT158058 
as shown below.

Using the
Ultimate Crafts Bohemian Bouquet Traditional Floral hotfoil stamp ULT158083
Together with the
I hot-foiled this gorgeous flower a few times and cut some of the flowers and leaves.

Layering all the hotfoil images and dies on top of each other as 
detailed in the photographs below.

 Cutting a Bohemian Bouquet Totem die ULT158059, 
Bohemian Bouquet - Wrought Iron Frame Die ULT158055
and adding to the top right hand corner of my page, with a chipboard word - JOURNEY.

Now the photo is of one of many temples in the countryside in Penang, we went there once for a family holiday, the place is called "KeK Loh Si Temple" which means "Heavenly Temple"

Sometimes this place is called the "Temple of 10 thousand Budhas"
You have to walk on many steps up a hill and at the top of the hill are many temples each lined with many gold Buddhas, hence the name 10,000 Budhas.

It was a very peaceful place and this one is decorated with gold and coloured lanterns outside. Inside you have to take your shoes off and pay respect to the Buddha. 
Here is a photo with all of the Temples before you climb up all the steps.
