Hi Everyone
A quick card from me today! All those lovely ladies who did my class at the Brisbane Paper Craft Expo will recognise this gem...It is similar to one we made with a few differences.
Question: What do you call a group of Dragonflies?
Answer: A Cluster or a Flight (hence the title of my post)
I love a bit of glitter and Core'dinations Glitter Silk Cardstock abates my glitter obsession!
I love it because a. it die cuts like a dream with Couture Creations Dies, b. the glitter does not flake off and c. its super glittery!
I have used 3 different colours of Blue Glitter Silk, Bermuda Bling, Sparkling Water and Regal Royal....Even the names are glittery! Oh and of course Core'dinations Foundations Bright White for the base of my card.
Firstly I cut my Bright White to the size card I wanted and from the leftover cut my top mat which I then embossed with the Couture Creations Great Fubu Embossing folder from the Marriot Collection.
This is a super cute folder that reminds me of foliage on another planet!
( I know strange, right? But you know what I mean, like something from a Disney movie. I love it!!!) 
(see what I mean?)
I then used a matching blue felt tip pen to trace around some of my alien foliage to highlight it ;)
Using the very pretty top layer die of the Couture Creations Van Roe Dragonfly Set I cut several dragonflies from all 3 colours of Glitter Silk cards stock. I also cut the first mat from Glitter Silk Regal Royal.
Folding their little wings up so they look like their flying, I then added them to the front of my card to form a Flight.

Hi Everyone 

Today I would like to share with you a card I created for my Tutors Display at the Brisbane Scrapbook and Papercraft  Expo this weekend. You will be able to see this card and a load of other projects IRL amongst the awesome Tutors Display featuring all weekend. This card also features one of the fantastic Couture Creations Dies I will be using in my "Once Upon a Whimsy" card class at the Expo. 

To make this card I cut a 5X7" card base from Core'dinations Bright White Foundations Cardstock and matted with a Foundations Baby Blue and Bright white.
From scrap cardstock I cut  a Couture Creations Momento Tied Together Die cut with the added help of the most awesome Quick Release Die Paper... 

Not to waste my die paper I used it as a mask and spritzed a couple of the corners of the mat.

Then with the Die cut I used it as a mask also to add some white paint to the mix.

Using my Couture Creations Non Stick Scissors I distressed the edges of my card base and both mats. Using the super strong bonding 18mm Couture Creations Double sided tape, I put these all together!

I added some chicken wire (also left over from Tutors Display). I added the wire to my project using the Couture Creations 3D Glue Spots for a strong hold. I added a pre made flower to the center of the card.
I then cut some Couture Creations Lucky Trees out in coordinating colours to feature around the flower.

I thought this card needed something else but only a subtle something so Using the Couture Creations Van Roe Beautiful Butterfly I cut a acetate butterfly... to do have my die cut all the way through the acetate I enlisted the help of the Couture Creations Metal Adapter Mat... my sandwich went as follows (for Bigshot) multi purpose platform, cutting plate, die, acetate, metal adapter mat, cutting plate, this worked a treat!

I added this to my card and made it sparkle by adding some Couture Creations Glitzin Glamour Crystalina to the acetate. 

As I mentioned earlier I am a Tutor at the Scrapbook and Papercraft Expo for Couture Creations this weekend along with the very Talented Kerrie Gurney and Tina Connolly.
Spaces are still available for all classes (but not many) and can be booked at the Paper Craft Expo Entry.
We can't wait to meet you! 

Thanks so Much for stopping by
