I have 1 hour on Create & Craft at 9am with some lovely new dies from Couture Creations. I want to give a big shout out and Thank You to Tracey Laughton and John Lockwood who have helped me by making some gorgeous samples. I'm on with Dean today so I hope we get to show all of them. I'm planning to show as many techniques as I can with the time I have. Just a heads up - some of the dies are already out of stock at the Creative Expressions Warehouse and it's unlikely that the dies will be re-stocked so if there's anything you need/want be sure not to hang about! I've also put a couple of nice card packs on the show - 1 pastel and 1 bold colours. They work quite well together as many of Tracey's samples show - be sure to check those out.
I have 2 cards today to share with you -
Craft Sheet. I picked it up onto a Smoothie and dabbed through the die cut onto a piece of Coconut White Card. I repeated this randomly across the whole background piece.
I cut the border from the Couture Creations Frames n Frills Gulda Set out of Sky Blue Card. There's no cut edge at the ends so I extended it to the length of my background. I repeated this again then cut a White Pearl Strip in half and added it to the middle of both die cuts.
Sky Blue and Cobalt Card. I added a piece of Creative Expressions Double Sided Self Adhesive Sheet to a piece of Sky Blue Card and cut the Flower Pot from the same die set, peeled off the backing and added Diamond Snow Cosmic Shimmer Glitter Jewels. I added a 5mm White Pearl to the centre of the flower.
Off White Satin Ribbon. I added another piece of Creative Expressions Double Sided Self Adhesive Sheet
to another piece of Sky Blue Card and cut the largest butterfly from the Edith & Baby die
set, peeled off the backing and added Diamond Snow Cosmic Shimmer
Glitter Jewels. I added some 3mm White Pearls to the body of the butterfly.
piercing around the edges.
Here's the second card which show off the Happy Birthday Die Set and the Edith Border.
Creative Expressions Leafy Quad Embossing Folder. The Edith & Baby Die Set and the Edith Border have been cut out of Lilac Card.
Clear Perfect Medium into it, covered with Phill Martin Cosmic Shimmer Decadent Grape Embossing Powder, tapped off the excess and heat set. I added more ink, more powder and heat set again.
Pearl Corners, some White Self Adhesive Pearls and piercing around the edges.
I've added all my samples for today's show to the Gallery section of this blog accessable via the top menu and on Facebook here.
See you at 9!
Thanks for stopping by.
