Foiled Blossom with Bird

Hi Crafty Friends,

Today I am sharing two cards I created while playing with my Go Press and Foil machine recently. About a month ago I posted a card I created using the old style embossing die from Spellbinders Impressablities but hadn't thought about using stencils with the machine until I saw a video by Stacey from Scrapbooking Made Easy. So of course the next day I had to get my machine, foil and stencils out to have a play.

Both cards using the Dreamweaver stencil called Blossom with Birds, I really love how this came out. And being able to get two cards out of one piece of foil is awesome. I also used a new birthday sentiment hot foil stamp I just got for the sentiment on the card. 

To finish off the card I added Nuvo Drops.

For the inside of the card I added another birthday hot foil stamp which I received the day I made the cards.

This card using the negative piece of the foil  which would normally be thrown out after foiling the first card ... I so love this idea. Check out Scrapbooking Made Easy's video if you have a Go Press and Foil machine to see how this is done.

Again the sentiment has also been foiled.

For the inside of this card I used the same hot foil stamp that I used on the front of the first card.

Jaw Drop. I saw that bird and thought ... why does that look so familiar. Then realized it was a brass stencil. LOVE these cards!!
