Foil Tuesday...

Happy Tuesday,

I hope everyone enjoyed yesterdays shows as much as I did It was great to be able to just play with some of my favourite products and share ideas and things I love.  The next show will be the launch of my first full die collection more details next week and maybe a few sneak peaks!

Today I am sharing a card i made using the PCD01 die from yesterdays shows and a piece I made using my GoPress hot foiling machine.  I used the stunning Rose Hot Foil stamp designed by Anna Griffin ( Im always in awe of her flower designs) and folded this onto black card with a silver shimmer foil.  I cut this out using the Press Cut Notched Rectangles dies and added s strip of ribbon around the bottom, I really felt that the image was strong enough not to need any embellishment.

Finally I added to a card made with the Stepper card die from Press Cut cutting the additional panels dies out from craft card which works so well with the strong black of the card base.  A simple take made using the notched rectangles and finished.



  1. Absolutely beautiful John, the black background makes the colours of the bloom pop, wonderful design, Kate x x

  21. Hi John. Love the rose stamp. I think I really am going to have to give some serious consideration to the hot foiling machine, it just looks so professional.


  22. Beautiful rose stepper card design. I enjoyed your shows on catch-up on Hochanda. As always when I watch your shows I learn from you something new to help me in my cardmaking. I appreciate you sharing your ideas and techniques. Thank you for enriching my skills in cardmaking.

  23. Hi John,
    I'm so pleased you are doing so well on Hochanda.
    I love the colours on this card!

  24. Beautiful card John.
    Really enjoyed your shows.
    The stepper die is definitely on my wish list.

  25. Hi John,
    you are not good for my bank balance with all these super gorgeous crafting items that you keep showing us.
    But I want and must have. LOL!
    I have a Birthday at the begining of next month so you know what is on the list.
    Your card is so gorgeous and stunning and such a super stunning design.
    As I have said before I am not a lover of stepper cards but you sure have changed my mind and would love this die.
    Lots of crafty regards. Jenny L.
