Christmas Mermaid

Found this gorgeous Christmas Mermaid on the Aurora Wings digi shop. I have coloured her using StampinUp Blends and Polychromas pencils. The die is from Spellbinders, by Becca Feeken. The sentiment is from the Beautiful Blizzard stamp set by Stampin Up.

GoPress and Foil Christmas

Using my GoPress and Foil by Couture Creations I made this very CAS Christmas card. The main image is a Couture Creations Snowflake Hot Foil Stamp. I foiled onto vellum with gold foil and used a square aperture card. The corners and sentiment are all peel-offs.

It has been a while

Wow I haven't posted since June where has the time gone. I am now into Christmas card mode and will share a few I have finished. My latest obsession at the moment is foiling. I use a GoPress and Foil machine and a laminator. This first card I foiled using the GoPress and an embossing folder.
The next one I stamped my image and then scanned it so I could print it on a Laser printer. The toner of the Laser printer is necessary for foiling with a laminator.
There are loads of You Tube videos on how to foil so I won't bore you with the details. Most of the projects I have done is from watching and learning from these videos.
Well thanks for visiting

Stamping with VersaMark Embossing ink

I must thank Jennifer McGuire for showing this technique.
I have used Altenew's Peony Bouquet stamp set. I stamped the detailed layer with VersaMark onto  Blue cardstock and then dusted some Perfect Pearls powder over the image. I then used the VersaMark ink to stamp the next layer which then takes away some of the powder and leaves an almost ghost shadow. To complete the stamping I used a dark blue ink to stamp the final layer. I repeated this process with the leaves and must say for a first time try it came out really well.
