Hi Everyone 

I have created a cute little tag for my blog post today using the Couture Creations Amaryllis Dies and some Nesting dies. The best thing about this little gem is that you could also pop it on the front of a card for an instant greeting. 

I first cut one of the many pieces of pattern paper from the 6x6 Hearts Ease Paper Pad with the Amaryllis Laced Frame Die.

Then I cut a Couture Creations Vintage Rectangle Nesting Die cut from matching cardstock. Inked the edge and attach it to the Amaryllis base.

Then I cut a matching pattern paper from the same pad in a rectangle to fit inside the Victorian Rectangle. I then added the Die cuts from one of the corner Dies from the Laced Frame Dies.

Cutting some Nesting Hearts from the back of the pattern papers that I had used I added a stamp from the Hearts Ease Frames and Sentiments Stamps. Adding them to the front of the tag with Couture Creations Foam Mounting Tape.

Then I added some Couture Creations 2cm and 1.5cm English roses. For some sparkle I added some Couture Creations Glitzin Glamour Crystalina, and finished off with some ribbon.

Hearts Ease

Hi Everyone 

The greatest thing about the New Couture Creations Hearts Ease Range is that it comes with all the things you need to make a really quick card.

I started with a 5x7 inch cardstock base made from Core dinations Foundations Concord cardstock.
And matted it with one of the many paper designs from the Couture Creations 12x12 Hearts Ease Paper Pad. First I distressed the edges 

I then Embossed another piece of card in the Couture Creations Hearts Ease Emboss Folder Music of the Heart. and distressed the edges also.

Then I folded back the top corner and added a Heart from the Couture Creations Hearts Ease Chipboard pack 

Then from the Couture Creations Hearts Ease Ephemera Pack, I added a border and another matching heart. 

I then took a Couture Creations Camden Cottage Rose and tore off the smaller portion of the flower to make it a little smaller (I will save the bottom for a later project) 

then along with some smaller Camden Cottage Roses I spritzed them to match my card.
I then added a butterfly from the ephemera pack and a phrase from the 6x6 inch paper pad. 
and Voila... all done! 
All these element from this card apart form the Camden roses Feature in the 
Couture Creations Hearts Ease Collection so I did not have to venture away from all the coordinating pieces of this range very far at all. I love this entire collection!!
