All That Jazz - Guest Designer Annette Gearside

#artdecocreations   #couturecreationsaus    #ultimatecrafts  

Hello everyone,welcome, thank you for stopping by, 
Annette here continuing to design with 
 'THE RITZ COLLECTION' titled 'GATSBY' designed by Sue Smyth.

The era of the 'twenties'  present images of private parties, chemise dresses, dancing &  the newest music rage ... jazz.
To depict all this I created a framed picture titled .. yes you guessed it..... 


The frame was a special at one of the cheapie shops I visit unfortunately the last one.

The background is gold glitter paper I then centred gold mirror board embossed with 'Abstract Tulips' ,fussy cutting around 3 of the silhouettes of dancing couples & adhered them across the gold. 
Fussy cut around the two ladies in their dance gowns.
I placed one behind the floral arrangement, the other on top of lace leaves adhering with foam tape.

Add some amber gems on the daisies & highlighting the ladies gowns and jewellery.
(Sorry I forgot to take pics of the next process.. oops ..)
I covered the surrounding  raised frame matt added the strip of silhouetted jazz band
and the title.

I am quite pleased with the finished piece and 
hope it has inspired you to create with this versatile range.

Till next time we meet .
Happy Scrapping.

The Ritz Ladies card set by Anita Enright

#artdecocreations   #couturecreationsaus    #ultimatecrafts  

Hi Everyone.

I have been making quite a few cards lately and decided I needed to start building up my collection at bit for birthday so have created these two gorgeous female cards using The Ritz collection by Ultimate Crafts.

I love the die cut cards at the back of the paper pads and have chosen to incorporate colours matching with some of the colours in the background of the die cuts.  The cards are all about layering and very quick and easy to put together.


For my first card, the bride, I decided to pick up the pink from the flowers on the die cut background.
The coloured cardstock I used by Ultimate Crafts was Precious for my pink and Paper Bag for my golden brown.  Both my cards measured 5x7" in size.  I cut both the pink and golden brown to my chosen mat size and then embossed the pink with the Rose Trellis embossing folder.

After choosing the die cut I cut out two of the Artdeco Wave Border dies in the Couture Creations Mirror Board in Matte Gold.  I matted the die cut on to a Paper Bag coloured mat and then attached the gold Artdeco Waves Border dies to the back and attached in to the pink embossed cardstock .

Next, I die cut the Classy Flower and the Flourished Harp in both the matte gold and precious pink cardstock.    I layered the two flower dies on top of each other and placed an embellishment from my stash to the centre and adhered it to the bottom left of the lady.  I then tucked in the two harp die cuts under the flower .  


My second card was constructed the same as the first one.  I again used the Paper Bag golden brown cardstock and embossed the Geometric embossing folder on some of the Garnet red cardstock.  I cut two of the Classy Flower decorative dies in the Matte Gold mirror board and two of the Deco Feather one in gold and one in the Garnet red cardstock.  Using the two way glue pen I applied glue to the white flower and with an offcut of some of the gold foil adhered the gold on to the tacky glue.  I repeated this  on the embossed red cardstock before putting it all together.
