Hi there once again. I have a card to share using a new piece of equipment, and new technique – which just so happens to be the theme of the new challenge starting at The Alphabet Challenge.
The letter is ‘T’, and the theme is ‘Try Something New’
I am sure you can guess – The Gemini Foilpress machine.
I have resisted this machine for the past year – having had a little play at 2018 Craftaganza, then another little play when a friend of mine brought hers over to my house. Why would I need foiling? What would I do with it? How would it enhance my card-making?
Well – I gave in. I bought one. And………….loving it!
Here is one the best – even though longest – YouTube videos which gave me all the hints and tips – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WR8rr2fUJj4&t=2805s
Now – bear with the video – there are a lot of hints, tricks, and ideas. I even did the foiling of the ‘waste’ – and it worked. So basically – no waste.
On my card, it is one of the foil stamp dies…….done the ‘correct way‘…. and one of the sentiments I bought separately. A few little ‘dew drops’ added for some dimension, and card done.
So – it would be fabulous for you to come and join us for this challenge, and show us your new crafty goodies, or new techniques. The challenge runs for two weeks. I look forward to seeing your creations and techniques in our gallery. xx
