Think bigger and brighter with the new Gemini FOILPRESS Platform

Crafter's Companion – 27/10/20

What’s life without a bit of sparkle? Now you can add that all-important touch of shimmer and shine to your larger makes with the new Gemini FOILPRESS 9″ x 12″ Platform!

This is a huge development for the FOILPRESS range and something we’re super excited about here at CCHQ. The larger Foiling Platform invites you to think big with your cardmaking so the sky really is the limit! Why not take a look through some of the creations below and let your imagination shine.

Why not make an impression with this supersized and sparkling creation? The larger surface area of the 9″ x 12″ Gemini FOILPRESS allows you to be more creative with the positioning of your dies with bigger projects. And this pretty in pink design has made the most of the FOILPRESS’s edge-to-edge heat to adorn all four corners with intricate swirls.

This card is a dream in blue and perfectly showcases the versatility of this new piece of crafting kit. Foil Stamp ‘N’ Cut Dies can be used with the FOILPRESS to create an inner frame, outer frame and a full-cut out topper. Here, the Foil Stamp ‘N’ Cut Blossoming Wreath Die has been used to create a delicate silver inner frame which neatly frames a sweet sentiment.

Just because you can work with larger scale projects, doesn’t mean any of the delicacy or precision is lost. This golden host of lace-winged dragonflies look like they’re ready to glide from the page! They have been brought to life using the Foil Stamp ‘N’ Cut Dancing Dragonflies Die, which allows you to cut out and carefully lift the wings to create an amazing 3D foiled effect!

This gorgeously glimmering card is another Foil Stamp ‘N’ Cut creation and what a beauty it is! Lifting the pearlescent butterfly wings from the subtle neutral background makes them shine all the brighter.

It’s not all flowers and butterflies, this Foil Stamp Elements Contemporary Decorative Border set adds some FOILPRESS magic with a bright and modern green colour palette. And this concept isn’t limited to papercraft – why not add some foiled details to faux leather to create a journal cover, or use it on fabric to personalise soft craft projects? FOILPRESS unlocks a new world of creative crafting potential!
