Spread your Wings and Fly

Hi Everyone 

Wow! We are almost at the end of January already.. How time flys. Yesterday I sent my eldest daughter off to her first day of high school. Some of you would have watched grow on my layouts over the years she is such a good girl (i must have done something right with this one lol) and it was time for her to spread her wings and fly. 

I made this card with the very lovely Enchanted Tea Party by Couture Creations
I started with 2 pieces of pattern paper 1 12x12 and the other 6x6 from the Enchanted Tea Party Paper Pads 

I took the 12x12 Pattern paper and cut certain elements from it including the top hat, tea pot and tea cup and the fob watch. 

add these elements to the 6x6 pattern paper on different heights with various amounts of foam mounting tape. 

taking some Couture Creations Tyed Dyed flowers and cut a small v in each petal so as to match the flowers of the pattern paper, then place them as desired around your layered elements.
I added some muslin to effect.

then using the Buterfly from the Ultimate Crafts Oh La La Framed Butterfly flourish set I cut 2 Glitter Buterflies from Couture Creations Glitter paper, then I cut them in half and adhered the same ides together o form a flying butterfly.

From the same Glitter Cardstock I cut 2 pieces of foliage with the Couture Creations Enchanted Tea Party Bouquet Die to use as fillers on my card 

Then of course to add some contrast I used the card symbols from the Couture Creations Enchanted Tea Party Nesting set cut from glitter cardstocks and placed them in strategic positions. 

I then added a stamp from the Ultimate Craft Oh La La Collection with the appropriate message for my big girl.
I then added the entire thing to a 6x6 Card Blank made from Ultimate Crafts Cardstock

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.
