Challenge #84: Golden Glitter/Foil - use only white and gold

Now that / means and/or............as in Glitter (paper) and/or Foils.........as long as gold is somehow involved!

So, in the craft world there are many new things and techniques arriving all the time lately, but there are also so many thing that are tried and true. Glitter and Glitter paper have been around for quite a while and there are many ways to use them. I remember my very first foray into the loose glitter - I was hooked from the beginning! Despite the fact that the craft room often resembled a fairy castle and I discovered the hard way that a spilled container of glitter does not want to return to the place from which it came!!!

So, when along came glimmer/glitter paper I was happy. I have a lot of it - particularly in silver for some reason. I then became quite a hermit and hoarder of this card, not using it often to 'save' it for something special. Nowadays I am a bit more capable of sharing this with others! Probably has something to do with the fact that it is more readily available in good quality now as well.

In addition, the various companies started to produced foiled papers..........like these

Then....I started to read about a machine called the TODO.....and I lusted for it but it was overseas and quite expensive. One glorious day, I realised that an Australian company called Couture Creations was marketing a machine called a Go Press and Foil! I fell in love all over again! Suddenly I could foil myself without using glue or similar and it was compatible with my Big Shot.  I told my hubby about it and waited hopefully.........sure enough, I got one for Christmas!!! Yes, sneaky....

  1. I can't believe I was making this gift tag yesterday and it fits the challenge. Love the DT inspiration.

  2. Argh! I have just posted a card with gold glitter and no stamps, but European date is 30/9 while yours is already 1/10.... :( Such a shame!
    Beautiful inspirations

  3. Is it ONLY white and gold, or does it just have to include white and gold??
