Smile

Hi Bloggers.

I have a bit of a two-fer for you today - the same card but in different colours.

This is the one I demoed on Hochanda -

The backing paper is from the Couture Creations Vintage Rose 12 x 12 Paper Pad. The border paper is from the same paper pad - looking at it here, it looks like the same paper! I don't think it is as it has words rather than notes, but maybe I intended to use the other side for the border and forgot? Who knows! Anyway, I edged the border with a little Black Tie Dye Ink using a Smoothie. I cut a border out of Black Card using the Couture Creations Bobtail Set. The border die has no cutting edges at the sides so you can easily extend it as I did here.

I used the 2 circular dies in the set together to cut a fancy circular frame out of Black Card. I used the smaller of those 2 dies to cut a circle out of Coconut White Card. I ran it through the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations Music of the Heart Embossing Folder. I inked around the edges with Tattered Rose Distress Ink using a Smoothie and then rubbed Blush Gilding Wax over the embossed design. I cut the Couture Creations Treble Clef Die out of Black Card.

I tied a bow using 3 lengths of Black American Seam Binding. I ran the Couture Creations Island Flower Border through the Grand Calibur with a strip of card from the Paper Pad. I cut it down into individual flowers and used them to make a flower for my bow. I added a White 5mm Pearl to the centre.

I cut a sentiment panel out of the Paper Pad. I cut the Couture Creations Script Smile Die out of Black Card.

I assembled the card as shown adding a White Pearl Corner and piercing around the edges using my Tim Holtz Ruler, Precision Probe and Piercing Mat. The mats on this one were Coconut White Card coloured with Tattered Rose Distress Ink.

This was my sample card made using the other colour way in the Paper Pad -

I used Bundled Sage Distress Ink and Phill Martin Vintage Sage Gilding Wax on the one above.




Phill Martin is launching a One Day Special on Hochanda this evening at 8pm and continuing on tomorrow. Hope you can tune in. I've set up a section on my website 'As seen on TV'. I don't stock all products that are on TV but I thought it might help you find products.

Don't forget to pop by later to see if you have won Freebie Friday!

Thanks for stopping by.

  27. Hello Julia.

    I think this is such an elegant card. Your bobtail frame with the Treble Clef is lovely, personally I prefer the pink colour version the most. Thanks for sharing.

    Both are stunning creations but I think I prefer the second if I had to choose. It just goes to show what a difference a change of colour can make.
