It's beginning to look alot like Christmas by Amanda Baldwin

#couturecreationsaus
 
Hi Creators!
Amanda here, sharing a lil Christmas card (with only 2 months until Christmas it is time)
that uses some fabulous Couture Creations dies!


So stunning!
I love how versatile the Couture Creations products can be - and the dies are no exception! 
I've combined my Moulin Rouge doily  & Paddington Street Lamp with the Holly & Berries Frame to create this card. 


(Yes - I've combined my regular dies with my Christmas collection to maximise interest & effect!)

Here's how......


Prepare your die cuts in the cardstock colour of choice 
& then snip the doily and lamp (as shown above). 


Adhere your Christmas paper of choice to the cardstock card using Double Sided Tape. 


Attach doily halve to bottom of card - as shown.


Glue the lamp top - as featured above.


Attach Holly & Berries Frame using 3D Foam Mini Dots - so it slightly 'pops' off the card.


Add a sentiment, 'It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!'.
Attach a bow for added dimension & 
some of those stunning Red Lust Gemstones to complete the card.

Voila! 
Another super easy but oh-so-stunning card,


Simply beautiful!

Thanks for viewing this Christmas Card tutorial!

Floral Lace Card by Lesa Bird

#couturecreationsaus


Hi everyone,
 Today I've made a quick card, using a Couture Creations Floral Lace - Daisy Doily.
 Quick tip, when using Couture Creations Floral Lace Dies as a mask, never throw them away.
(see my project on the 8th October)




Attach a piece of Couture Creations pattern paper, from the new Vintage Rose Garden Collection, to your card, add a little fibre at this stage.

Simply attach your disregarded mask to the front of your card, 



 

Add a few flowers, ribbon, and your done.
stay safe and Enjoy your day

Art Journal by Tina Connolly

#couturecreationsaus

Hi everyone,
It's Tina here with an Art Journal cover I created recently. 

I used the new Couture Creations Vintage Rose Garden papers, along with lots of dies and some embossing folders.
 


I embossed using Loren and Velvet Tea Lights Embossing Folders to create extra texture. The diecuts were given a variety of treatments including heat embossing, spraying with shimmer mists, and applying various mediums. 



I wanted a textural, grungy look so  used embossing powders in random areas.



Here's the back cover.....
I once again used lots of diecuts and layered them over strips of Vintage Rose Garden papers.
The Artdeco Lace Frame die was used as a stencil and I applied gel medium through it, just make sure to wash your die immediately.  
I used strips of Core'dinations cardstock and embossed it using Velvet Tea Lights Embossing Folder, then sanded it to expose the core.
The fun thing about a project like this is that there are no rules, you can experiment and have fun, and create the project in a variety of styles such as shabby chic, grungy, or whimsical.

Together by Kerrie Gurney

#couturecreationsaus

Hi everyone it's Kerrie here

It is my turn again on the Couture Creations Blog
and I am just loving the new Vintage Rose Garden Patterned Papers, they are so soft and pretty.

Seeing today is my 50th ..yes 50th Birthday I thought I would scrapbook one of my childhood photos, this is a photo of my brother Shane and I taken in March 1968.
 I love this photo of us, we were just too cute.





To start die cut from cardstock 1 x Postale Square die using Quick release Die Paper 


see how the die lifts straight off when you use Quick Release Die Paper



Cut the die in half


adhere to the top and bottom of 4"x 6" photo using double sided tape 
you want the top is hanging over the top of photo


Die cut 2 x Vintage Borders from cardstock


Cut a strip of gingham patterned paper 5cm wide x 20cm long and emboss


pop the strip through the slot in the top of the embossing folder and emboss the full strip.
I love that this Christmas embossing folder is so versatile and can be used for any occasion



Die Cut 2 x Vintage Branch dies from patterned paper and 1 x Daffodil Spray Die from cardstock


Ink the edges using a sponge dauber so as to not overdo the inking 


Lightly sand the embossed paper strip


and then ink lightly around edges and on the embossed pattern


Distres the edges of all pieces and then start layering pieces onto the base pattern paper



add some pearls to flower centers on base patterned paper



Finish off with some Crystalina Glitzin' Glamour Glitter Glue to flowers on base patterned paper and premade flowers


here is a closer look at the details
