#artdecocreations   #couturecreationsaus    #ultimatecrafts  

HI Everyone 

As you would be aware from the release of the 2017/18 Artdeco Creations Design Team I by my own choice am no longer going to be a member of this wonderful team.
So I am going to take this opportunity to say THANK YOU AND GOODBYE.

Throughout the 6 years that I have been apart of this wonderfully talented Design Team and awesome company, I have had many opportunities to share my passion for papercraft with you all.

 I especially want to thank all those who have over the years read my blog posts and/or attended my classes for Artdeco including 5 Brisbane Paper Craft Expos which I have loved every moment of including all my crazy outfits...






I have also been given a massive opportunity to appear on Create and Craft TV in the UK and California Crafting in the US and been to CHA  twice!!

Thank you all for letting me be MYSELF, 
and putting up with the outfits and my sometimes "out there" antics....
 (mannequin challenges and "Andy's coming" challenge and let's not forget the Mexican wave).

Creative Inspiration Live 2017

 Thank You for letting me create with you and share some of my life with you through the Art Deco Blog. 

A Massive Thank you to Andrew and the Team at ARTDECO CREATIONS for your continued support and love and all the opportunities you threw my way. I am, and will be, eternally grateful. 

Thank you for the daily inspiration I found in my fellow Team mates over the years especially the very talented Kerrie Gurney, Jo Simons and Adriana Bolzon. You ladies are wonderful and I am lucky to be able to call your friends. 

so this is THANK YOU and GOODBYE
Just remember that 
is spelt 
T R A C E Y

Ritzy Elegant Fan card by Adriana Bolzon

#artdecocreations   #couturecreationsaus    #ultimatecrafts  

Hi there everyone, Adriana here back on the Artdeco Creations blog today with another project created with the just new release collection - 
Ultimate Crafts - Artdeco Creations "The Ritz Collection".  
The Designer of this collection is the talented Australian "Sue Smyth" 

 In this collection there are 2 separate stamp sets, that compliment the collection - I want to showcase just one of the sets. 
This stamp set has 4 images and some word sentiments. Along with some of the  Ultimate Crafts - Artdeco Creations "The Ritz Collection"  papers, hot foil stamps and dies I created this very Ritzy Elegant Fan Card, suitable for an invitation or birthday card. 

Once I stamped the image of the elegant lady on to some white card stock,  I coloured the dress with watercolour pencils and then applied some Glitzin' Glamour Red Glitter Glue CO721979 over the image, this added a little sparkle to the dress image.

Black, Silver and Burgundy compliment each other so well together. The best thing about stamping the images is that you can colour them in any colour. I coloured this image with in a Burgundy red water colour pencil.

The products I used to create this card.

Ultimate Crafts - The Ritz Collection Forever Classy stamps ULT157841

With the Ultimate Crafts Black Cardstock ULT20007, I cut two of the 

and placed them on each side of my card.

Using the GoPress & Foil Machine CO725032 and Silver Matte Foil CO725350 and
Ultimate Crafts - The Ritz Collection Artdeco Framed Columns Hotfoil stamp  
ULT157868 I created these with smooth Black cardstock and then cut out the centre of the frame. I also created two foiling Classy Fans with the Ultimate Crafts - The Ritz Collection Artdeco Classy Fan Hotfoil stamp ULT157873


The background was created with the
Ultimate Crafts - The Ritz Collection Artdeco Crashing Waves Background Die ULT157864 with Ultimate Crafts Black Cardstock ULT20007 and Ultimate Crafts Carnelian Card stock ULT200068

Enchanted Party meets Vintage Rose Layout by Denise Boddey

#artdecocreations   #couturecreationsaus    #ultimatecrafts  

 Hello Denise here and I am excited to share this layout of my son and daughter in a renovated frame. I have made this layout with Enchanted Tea Party and Vintage Rose collections using more of the reds from Vintage Rose as they work well together with the red flower in Enchanted Tea Party.
Lots of layers and fussy cutting  with some resin molds Imaginarium chipboard and a little bit of micro beads.

I have also placed on the chipboard some micro-beads for texture.

Thank you for dropping by and viewing my creation.

Forever Inspired by Anita Enright

#artdecocreations   #couturecreationsaus    #ultimatecrafts  

Hi Everyone, Anita here back on the blog with my last blog post for the month.

Today I have a project using THE RITZ collection from Ultimate Crafts, designed by Sue Smyth.

There were oh so many photos taken from the Brisbane Scrapbook & Papercraft Expo from earlier this month but I loved this one of the three of us girls that tutored classes for Craft Giraffe.

For this photo I decided to use the Evening Cocktail colour range using blacks and golds throughout my layout.

To start my layout I mixed together the 'yellow gold' and 'brown' pigment powders from the Mix & Match Pigment Powder set.  I sprayed it over my black cardstock not only to give it a shimmer but also to remove the starkness of the black

Once dry I took my Anna Griffin Embossing Paste and the Artdeco Waves stencil and applied some texture to the page.  Immediately after applying the embossing paste I sprinkled the wet paste with some of the Mirror Gold embossing powder and set it with the heat gun. I never let my paste dry before heat setting the powder as I love the look of the paste when it bubbles. 

Next I die cut some of the Deco Feather in some of the matte gold foil mirror board.  Using the GoPress and Foil machine I used the Geometric Waves and Think Waves hotfoil stamps on black cardstock and then fussy cut them.  Finally using the Artdeco Waves decorative die I foiled on some black cardstock.  I absolutely love the delicate details the dies give to the foil. This I also had to fussy cut.

Next I chose several patterned papers from the 6x6" paper pad from the Evening Cocktail range and cut them to differing sizes.  I then layered them one on top of each other.  I glued them together and then decided I didn't like them so I glued them on to some of the Cinnamon coloured Ultimate Carfts cardstock and then trimmed around them. I liked this better when it was attached to the black base cardstock. I then layered everything together.

For my black flowers I added some tacky glues to the edges of the petals and then rubbed some of my scrap foil over it.  The glue cannot be wet otherwise the foil will not stick.  Once it is tacky to touch is the perfect time to add the foil.  

The finishing touches was foiling of my chipboard layout and also the diamond wood 
veneer that I added.

ULT200044 - Ultimate Crafts Cardstock - Cinnamon

Thanks for stopping by today.

Until next time, stay crafty
