Gemini FoilPress Cheers

I’ve had my head down working on my upcoming release for the Essentials by Ellen line, but I needed to congratulate a young lady on her recent graduation from a dental assistance program and I couldn’t help it—I had to foil the card I wanted to make for her. Used low profile dies and the Gemini FoilPress (you can see a how-to-video HERE).

This Sunburst die set by Hero Arts was perfect for the “popping” visual effect. LOVE!!! •all the heart eyes•

This design also called for more sequins than usual; looks so purdy with the foil, right?!

Thanks for stopping by today and hope your weekend has been splendid!


You know me. A card that makes me laugh is always going to be my favorite. Always!!! I figured out some fun hacks (a.k.a. tips & tricks) for this awesome Letterboard Die set—be sure to stop by the Ellen Hutson Blog on Dec. 24th because I have a video highlightin’ m’ trusty dusty hacks! LOL!

And, all that glorious rainbow confetti? I DIY’d it. •cheeky grin• Here’s a link to my video on YouTube: DIY Rainbow Tissue Paper Confetti. It works so awesome with the Confetti Flinger Die. Seriously, you gotta try it! Too much fun!!!

I’m really glad you stopped by today. Really, really.



Cliché? Alright already!!! I don’t care!!! •hair flip• It is STILL such a super cute way to congratulate someone on their engagement!

“Painted” the nails with a Copic Marker—struggling to remember what color it was, but my best guess, based on my collection of Copics, is that it was either Salmon Red, or Coral.

It’s hard to tell on camera, but I actually drew “bling rays” radiating outward from the hand using the clear Shimmer Pen, and also put a coating of the same on the red nails. And, holy crow, those White Rhinestones make the poifect rock for that ring finger! •wink•

The finished card measures 3.5 x 5” (a.k.a. a 4-bar notecard). As an A-2 the balance looked off but when you scale it down like this, it just feels right to the eyes.

Thanks for stopping by today!
