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.
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.
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 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.
