So, having managed to get some stuff out of the way that has been pre-occupying me, I enjoyed some proper downtime playing with my foils and stamps.
The gorgeous Pretty Peonies Foil Stamp used for today's project was a much wanted Christmas present. I loved it the moment I saw it. It appears that it is no longer available from Crafters Companion, but a quick Google search will bring up some stockists, if you like it.
The Happy Birthday sentiment is also a Gemini Foil Stamp. I decided to try some Gemini Papercraft Foil in Silver Shimmer on dark grey card stock and think the result is quite sophisticated and stylish. I love the way it gently shimmers, which I think is really clear from the topper. I used Gemini Stitch Edge Circle Dies for that.
My Gemini Foilpress did all the hard work on this card. I had it made in probably 10 minutes ! I shall try it again, putting together some different designs and ideas. And what's more, I shall use the same Pretty Peonies Foil Stamp and see what different looks I can achieve. I promise to report back with the results.
That's it for today folks. Thanks for stopping by.
Off for a coffee and a rummage through my card stock.
Bye for now and ......................."happy crafting everybody!"
