Hi Everyone 

I hope you all had an awesome New Year. This is my first post or 2017 and it is just a quick tag with a cute flower made from the Trimming pack from the Oh La La Collection
Once again I have used some of my other collections to work with the Oh La La including the Be Merry Range of Embellishments and the Wild and Free Dies. I love how all the Collections can be used to compliment each other and I love that I can still use the Be Merry range all year round. 

For this Vintage Tag I have use the Ultimate Crafts 6x6 Oh La La paper pad and cut a 3" strip and the shaped the top to form my tag.

after shaping my tag I then Distressed it a little by scrunching it up and the sanding it lightly with the black side  of my Couture Creations Sanding Block. I then inked its edges.

I then took a Paper Doily from the Oh La La Paper Doily set Hearts and mixing some Couture Creations Anna Griffin Pigment Powder and alcohol on a Couture Creations Craft mat I then put my doily in the droplets. I dried it with a Couture creations Heat tool and added it to my tag.

With the left over mixture I painted a Chipboard word and a couple of hearts from the Couture Creations Be Merry Range and set aside to dry.

to make my flower I cut a smallish circle from the Couture creations Circle Nesting Dies and the length of Lace from the Oh La La ribbons and lace set.

then using a hot glue gun I attached the lace, gathering it as I went around the outside of my cardstock circle.

spiralling it into the middle as above.

then I used an earing that I had purchased from a costum jewelry shop for the centre of my flower. I removed the loops etc from the earing first and used hot glue to secure it. I then added to the doily.

 I then cut from matching cardstock a die cut of the Couture Creations Wild and Free Forest Frame and set to cutting it into pieces to use as foliage.

Then I added my title and hearts that I painted earlier then to finish off. I added some of the Oh La La ribbons to the top with a staple.

I love the way this turned out it has such a warm vintage feel about it and cannot wait to add it to a special gift.

Hi Everyone 

I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and that you all did not spend too much at the Boxing Day Sales. 
Today I have a pretty pink all occasions card for you using some of the Art Deco Creations Brands and ranges including the Anna Griffin Mixed Media, Bulk flowers and the Ornamental Affair ranges.

To start this card I cut a piece of Couture Creations Glitter Paper in white to a mat size that would fit a 5x7 card, this will be my card front.
(sorry about the messy mat I have 2, one for mixed media (this one) and another clean one for the cleaner side of crafting.)

Then using the above Couture Creations Anna Griffin Creeping Vine Stencil I smeared my pink paste randomly over the glitter mat. And dried with a Couture Creations Heat Tool.

Then I cut a Couture Creations Ornamental Affair Jasper Doily from Ultimate Crafts Snow White Cardstock and cut it in half placing half onto the front of my card front as a pretty accent.

Making a Couture Creations Anna Griffin Pigment Powder and alcohol mix, taking a brush I transformed a Couture Creations Camden Cottage White Rose into a shimmering pink beauty. 
once dry I added it to m card front along with some Couture Creations Beaded Script flowers that I removed the bead from and turned upside down. I also added some seam binding ribbon and a metal butterfly and I filled a tiny glass bottle with some Couture Creations Anna Griffin Glitter.

I finished off this pretty pink card front with some Couture Creations Gemstones, and some sequins.
hen of course I backed my card front with some Matching Pink Ultimate Crafts Cardstock and then used some Ultimate Crafts Ivory Cardstock as my card base. 

Thanks so much for stopping by.
 I hope your New Year is as crafty as you want it to be!

Hi Everyone 

Oh My Gosh!!! Christmas is soooo close now..... I hope you have all your Christmas creating done.
We get so busy at this time of year that we sometimes forget those who are having birthdays this month. A friend of mine has her Dads birthday this coming Friday so I have made her this card to help make it special. 


I have used a few different ranges for this card ( I love the way I can mix and match my Art Deco Ranges). I have used the Ultimate Crafts Oh La La paper range and a Couture Creations Wild and Free Die, a Couture Creations Sea Breeze Die and an Ultimate Crafts Seasons Greetings Die along with (of course Ultimante Crafts cardstock and Couture Creations Glitter paper).

I started with 2 different but matching coloured cardstocks and folded one into a 5x7 card base and the other into a mat. I distressed both the base and mat and set aside. I then cut 2 more mats from the Ultimate Crafts Oh La La collection. Again I distressed the edges.

I then wrapped the mats with some matching embroidery floss for depth and texture.

I thin die cut the following die. Couture Creations Wild and Free Akua Doily Set from brown cardstock. The compass from the Couture Creations Sea Breeze Cardinal set from mirror gold cardstock. And from Glitter Cardstock I cut a heart from the Ultimate Crafts Seasons Greeting When you wish die set. 

I tore another piece of the Oh La La collections into and interesting formation for the front of the card then set to putting my die cuts into place. 

I added some other embellishments I had lying around my craft room and then added my torn card front with foam mounting tape.

No male card is complete without some brass and hessian a button and some rubons. 

So Whilst your finishing off your Christmas projects don't forget those who are celebrating something else this month.

Wishing you and your family the merriest of Christmases and a happy and healthy New Year.
