Hello friends and welcome to Challenge 397 at Addicted to Stamps and More.
This time we are looking for a Christmas theme. Guess which lucky girl got a GoPress and Foil foiling machine for Christmas? Yep - I found one under the tree and after not being at all sure that I would make enough use of one to justify the price, I have to say I have found it fun and easy to use. This is my first card using it!
I used the Gemini Twinkling Tree foil stamp die and it came out beautifully on white card. As the tree is so pretty, I didn't want to add much more - a few gems and a retired sentiment stamp from Happy Little Stampers finished it off. I tried the tree again on coloured card and didn't have as good a result - the foil was duller and seemed to sink into the card. More playing is obviously required but if you have a machine and can give any tips, I'd love to hear from you!
There is lots of inspiration from my talented teammates over on the ATSM blog and it would be great if you decide to play along with us.
I'd like to play along at
Thanks for stopping by.
