#artdecocreations   #couturecreationsaus    #ultimatecrafts

Hi everyone! It's Julie here back on the blog today sharing a layout I created using the Bohemian Bouquet collection from Ultimate Crafts and chipboard from Couture Creations.

Take the following sheets from the 12x12 paper pad, cut out the circle from one of the pages and adhere to the base. Distress both layers. Next take the two main pieces from the decoupage sheets, cut them down and adhere on the circle to frame the photo. Cut a heart paper doily in half and placed underneath the circle layer as shown.


Ink the chipboard sentiment with red ink as a base colour then cover with Hot Pink Glitzin' Glamour.


For the frame, ink with a dark grey ink then coat with watered down black pigment powder.


Next add some flowers, black lace and a blue butterfly embellishment from the collection.



Use the Crystal 2mm gemstones in clusters around the page and Bubblegum 2mm gemstones in the flower centres on the circle layer as shown.


Here is a close up of the finished layout.

"You Are Beautiful" - Foiled Bohemian Card

"You Are Beautiful" - Foiled Bohemian Cards

#artdecocreations   #couturecreationsaus    #ultimatecrafts  

Hi everyone! It's Julie here back on the blog today sharing a clean and simple card using the GoPress & Foil Machine from Couture Creations.


To start I've taken the Orchid Box hotfoil stamp and placed it onto my GoPress & Foil Machine to heat up. Using some Phantom Purple hotfoil, I've foiled onto a smooth piece of white cardstock.


I've used the largest die from the Victorian Squares nesting die set to cut out the hotfoiled image. This shape works perfectly with both the Orchid Box die and hotfoil stamp. I've tacked it down with washi tape to hold in place. Note: The Victorian Squares set has been discontinued but is still available in some stores.


This particular die is the largest in this set. To create a backing layer, place the same die onto the back of some purple glitter cardstock. Tack down with wash tape.


Trace around the outside of the die and cut out the shape.


 Adhere to the glitter cardstock using strong adhesive tape or glue. Then adhere to the front of the card with foam tape or dots.


Cut the Orchid Box die using purple glitter cardstock. Trim off the four "orchids" and adhere each one underneath the main panel as shown.


 For the sentiment, foil the Beautiful Inside and Out hotfoil stamp onto some smooth white cardstock using more of the Phantom Purple hotfoil. Trim down and adhere to some purple glitter cardstock. Adhere to the centre of the focal piece using foam tape or dots.


  Add some 2mm Crystal gems as shown to complete the card.

Rose Gold Christmas Card

Rose Gold Foiled Christmas Card

#artdecocreations   #couturecreationsaus    #ultimatecrafts  

Hi everyone! It's Julie here back on the blog today sharing a very easy, clean and simple foiled Christmas card using the GoPress & Foil Machine and Diecut'N Bond Tape.


To start I've taken one of the white A6 cards and covered the front with Diecut'N Bond tape. I've also added some tape to a piece of white cardstock - this will be for the die cut.


I've die cut the piece of covered cardstock using the Christmas Baroque background die from the Let Every Day Be Christmas collection. Note: the die should be cutting into the cardstock Diecut'N Bond side up. Foil will be adhered to this piece later on.


Peel the backing from the front of the card exposing the sticky layer then place your die cut piece in the centre of the card front. Don't throw the backing away, this comes in handy later.


Use the backing to help press and stick the die cut onto the sticky card front. It's a lot easier than using just your fingers!


Sprinkle white glitter onto the centre of the card front. Spread it across the whole piece with your finger to burnish the glitter.


Remove the "backing" from the die cut piece then place a piece of vintage matte rose gold hotfoil over the die cut. Press firmly across the whole piece until you can see the pattern as shown below. When you are happy with the result remove the foil.


There may be some tiny areas that missed glitter or foil. Lightly rub your Goodbye Static pad across the entire piece to eliminate any tackiness. That's the first half of the card done.


To create the sentiment I've used the Ornate Christmas Frame hotfoil stamp from the Let Every Day Be Christmas collection and foiled with rose gold mirror hotfoil onto a piece of smooth white card. This is a lovely frame and looks beautiful in rose gold.


Using the same piece I've placed the Merry Christmas hotfoil stamp from the Let Every Day Be Christmas collection in the centre of some vintage matte rose gold hotfoil. Remember to cut as much excess as possible to avoid unwanted foil transfer. Tape down lightly with washi tape avoiding taping over any existing foiled areas.


This is the result. I didn't use any extra shims for this process, only the GoPress & Foil plates. You may need to use a shim depending on your machine's pressure.


I've added a couple of crystal 2mm gemstones, one in each corner of the card and four around the foiled frame. Here is the finished card.
