    At one time John you could only purchase foiled cards that were so expensive, now I can foil at home with your delightful dies and produce a very good foiled card with designs the shops do not have. Please keep the dies coming John they are so unusual.

    These are definitely something different in the world of hot foiling, love them all. I think hot foiling adds a “je ne sais quoi” to my cardmaking process.



    Can only agree with all the above. My cards look a lot more professional since using foiling on them. Fingers crossed I am amongst the lucky winners.



    Cards which have foiled elements always look expensive; classy and make the recipient feel special due to the opulence. I’m sure due to the quality produced it makes people think they are not handmade cards, but it’s wonderful to know they are.



    Using the Hot Foil and cut dies always give a professional, slick finish, i just can’t get enough of making these types of cards.
    Good luck John with your launch excellent looking products as always.

    I love all your work but especially the foiling. The cards look so posh. They are always admired. Thank you for your generosity x



    The dies give such a professional look. Perfect every time. I love the effect.



    I love the look of you’re new foil and emboss dies. Cant wait to see your show. I love the foil look as it looks more professional finish on my cards but also more expensive.



    Love the look of all your new hot foil dies – they have an elegance mixed in with a playful air which will suit any style of card. Foiling on my cards makes them look more “up-market” and makes me feel proud to give them to my friends. Will be watching on Wednesday. Good luck with your launch. X



    Hi John I’m just starting using foiling and love it, it gives you the chance to fool like professionals so easily ,amazing results can be achieved do easily , I would love yo win so here’s hoping xx



    As a newcomer to card and paper crafting, I love the professional look you get from adding hot foiling to designs – also the ‘shiny’ appeals to the magpie in me



    I am just starting the foiling journey and I think the dies you have designed are very distinctive and will certainly add class to my cards. I have learnt so much from you, I do not think I could have done so well without your tutorials. Keep up the good work John.



    I’ve only just started experimenting with hotfoil and love the finishing effect it gives. Can’t wait to try something new with these dies. Thank heavens pay day isn’t long after your show!



    Love ll these new Hot foil dies John. I use my machine a lot and love it. As has been already mentioned other people can’t believe you have done it yourself. It’s a very useful machine.



    John thanks for all your inspiration and easy to follow techniques you always share. I love foiling because it makes my hand crafted cards look really good and friends do not believe I made them myself as I am still learning the skills. Celebrate in style as you finally launch your new range.



    This is it John how exciting!
    Just 6 days to go!!!

    Why I love the hot foil look… hot foiling can either be a professional finishing touch or an interesting starting point for use with other mediums. it allows me to do things I could not do before with ease, it also gives me amazing results with less energy spent as nowadays energy is in short supply. The best part about using it though is the response of the recipient. Always my motivation!



    I love to use foiling in my crafting. It adds that extra touch which no-one really expects and lifts my cards out of the ordinary. I always get comments about the foiling and ‘how did you do that?’



    How exciting to be launching your own range of foilin dies. These look really versatile & I’m looking forward to seeing your demos next week. I have a machine, but it’s still in the box 🙈 #dontbedaft

    You’re a very talented guy and welcome in my craft room any time. I love how well you explain everything and you’ve been a great help with the Scan n Cut. These dies look fabulous and I’d love to give them a go.

    Finally some foiling dies that are suitable for mixed media and people who don’t do sweet and pretty. You must be very proud to have your name on these. Well done.

Everything you bring to crafting improves our potential to make much better products with style and professional finish. Love to see you on TV so looking forward to the 17th. Congratulations and Good Luck. With this new venture

    Since joining your group I have learned so many different techniques and I feel my crafting has improved. I bought the Go press and foil at the first launch but didn’t use it straight away, then I found this group which gave me the confidence to try it. I love the fact that I can choose how much or how little foil I add. A great addition to anyone’s craft room.



    I love this technique. All in a nutshell, it gives your cards a touch of class!



    Well I think the foiled embossed look will give what ever you do a brilliant professional finish.Also if you have got Johns recommendation then they must be good.x



    Love how foiling can add a touch of luxury without being too ‘in your face’…. or it can be full on bling and beyond. It’s up to you which you choose.



    Just love your designs, I love the foil finish from dies on greeting cards as it really makes everything stand out so much, so eye catching, getting my cards noticed. And they would make a brilliant Birthday present for me on the 20th April.



    I love the way hot foiling adds extra luxury and finesse to my cards. Makes it look like I have special skills! You’ve got to have the right tools john!! xxx



    Hi John lovely to hear from you I love the look of these dies cant wait to see them I love foil embossing makes everything look special. I would love to win one of these dies xx
