Moments by Cindy Porter


Hi everyone Cindy here with another quick step by step to share with you today that I recently created for Couture Creations using the Floral Layers die sets.... "Moments"

this is a pic of my cute niece Hannah enjoying an afternoon at the Werribee zoo, here she was enthralled with the meerkats.... 

Now onto how I created the layout...

I began by creating a stencil cutting out two sets of the Clavelina layers from a magazine cover....

Next using the Core'dinations Heavy Weight white cardstock... I added modelling paste through my made stencil...
I dried the modelling paste using the Heat Tool, to puff it up and create texture...

then add some colour...

I used the flowers cut out when creating the stencil, to outline the modelling paste and to draw in a few extra flower shapes...

I then rubbed over some Inka Gold for highlights...

Next I sprayed up some of the bulk white flowers to match the layout...

Using some foam tape, I adhered the photo onto the background over a piece of gauze....

Finally I added a title and put the layout together....

Fancy Fold Cards with Lace Pockets


Hi crafty people! 
It's Jo and its my turn to inspire you all today :)
Today I have some fancy folded cards that feature the new Tied Together Saxony die from the new Lace Pockets collections.

These super sweet little pockets mean that I could make some fancy folded cards without having to worry too much about where to write my message as I had the little pocket on the front to house some tags to write my sentiment and message on.
The cards are just "Z fold" cards.
I have used the 6 x 6 Vintage Rose paper pad to create both cards.

Here is a closer look at each card

The little tag I made and stamped with the Hearts Ease stamps.

The tag for this card I used one of the little postcards that is in the 6 x 6 Vintage Rose paper pad.

For You by Anita Bownds


Today I'm sharing a card using the 
Hearts ease 6x6 paper pad, Aster die and the Hanslope die

I started off by selecting all my patterned papers 
For my base I chose a pattern that had all the colours
Next I cut a strip of yellow pattern paper and placed it across my card

Then I added some ribbon and a bow across the top of the strip of patterned paper 

I die cut the aster flower in the purple patterned paper and layered it and added some vintage gold gems

Next I hand cut some leaves from green paper from the paper pad
Then I die cut the hanslope die and added some double sided foam tape to pop it up

And then I flicked white mist to finish it off

Three Vintage Cards by Adriana Bolzon


Hi there everyone, Adriana here today at Couture Creations and today I am sharing my three Vintage inspired cards, that I have created using the wonderful new collection of dies from Couture Creations. 

Lace Pockets Die Cuts

and the

Secret Garden DIe
Chirp Chirp  C0724268

These are so easy to create, each die set in the collection come with little flowers or bows or pockets tags.

I have mixed them up a little, and cut out the details in some of the dies, just to show you how versatile these dies are. Once you see how I created these cards, I am sure that you will want the whole die collection,
There are 5 different sets to collect. Order them now from your local scrapbooking store, I think these are going to be quite popular.

So, lets begin with the paper, I chose a pink Damask page of the beautiful and wonderful 
Christmas Emporium Collection - Papers  and teamed it up with black , white and rose coloured card stock.

Here are my three cards

Please note the that Vintage images are from my private collection.
I purchased these when I went to Paris last year, but you can use any vintage images.

In this gorgeous set of Christmas papers there are 2 of each design. 
I totally love this vintage paper collection.
Some of the pages could be used not just for Christmas themed
projects. So, today I have created 3 Vintage Cards using the Pink Damask
paper from this collection.

Vintage Card no 1

I have used the
Lace Pockets Die Cuts in different ways, to show you all how versatile they are.

Here is the list of dies for this card, 

as you can see I cut 2 of the delicate design from The Dorsetshire Die cut pillow die, and placed the white flourish in the centre of each panel. Framed my image inside The Blandford die cut and decorated with the bow from The Chantilly die cut  The background is black square card stock.
Then I added a bit of sparkle with Vintage Gemstones around the lacework.

Vintage Card no 2

Here is the die cut list for this card

as you can see I cut 4 of the delicate flourish designs from The Dorsetshire Die cut with white card stock. I cut 2 Flowers from the Tied Together Saxony die and 2 flowers from the The Hanslope Die cut I framed my image inside The Blandford die cut and mounted this frame on a piece of rose card stock.
The background is black square card stock, covered with the
Damask pink paper from the Christmas Emporium Collection - Papers  
Then I cut Chirp Chirp die cut from the Secret Garden DIe and adhered it to the bottom on my vintage image with Couture Creations 3D dots.

Vintage Card no 3

Here is the die list for this card

as you can see I cut one of each of the above delicate flourish designs from Bow from - The Chantilly die  
Delicate panel & Flower from the Tied Together Saxony then cut in half.
Oval frame from theThe Hanslope Die cut 
Frame from The Blandford die cut 
Then I added a bit of sparkle with Vintage Gemstones around the lacework.

Fairy Light by Sue Smyth


My  challenge today is to recycle just an ordinary Vegemite jar into
something pretty.
I did not want to use a fancy jar as that would not be the 
point, it had to be a jar that everybody could access.

So with a little gesso, dies and glitter glue, I made this fairy
tee light holder that can be made from any old jar.

I wanted nice transparent glittery wings for my fairy, so
check out the step by steps below to achieve the same
look with Crystallina Glitzn Glamour glitter glue.

I have added fibers, pearls and paper roses to make a sweet
little garden for my fairy to sit in.

First die cut a few sleeping stems from assorted cardstock and
adhere to the jar with dimensional magic or gel medium. Allow 
to dry. 
Then dry brush with gesso

Die cut the fairy from some patterned paper, if you are clever
position the die so the darker edge appears on the ends of the wings.

Then place the die cut onto Quick Release Die Paper or baking paper, smear 
Crystallina Glitzn Glamour glitter glue over the wings, 
making sure to fill in the gaps in the wings.
Allow to dry (this may  take a day) 
When dry it will peel off the baking paper with the 
glitter glue dried in the gaps of the wings.

Adhere the body only of the fairy to the jar with dimensional magic

Spray over with a glimmer mist and dry brush with
gold metallic paint.
Then add pearls, fibres, flowers and a row of 
faux grass to the bottom to finish.
