DragonFly dreams

Hi Everyone 

As you know I love having a stash of cards just incase I get caught with a birthday or anniversary or something unexpectedly. So I have been filling my stash lately and made this one using the Ultimate Crafts L'Aquarelle Collection.

I love the way this card turned out and its so easy to do... 
starting with a mat to suit a 5x7 card base.

I made a mix of Couture Creations Anna Griffin Pigment powder and liquid hair spray in a spray bottle and spritzed the matt Blue.

I then cut a die cut from scrap paper using the L'Aquarelle Flourish Background die. I sprayed the back of the die cut with basting spray and pressed it onto the front of my mat.
then using the Ultimate Crafts Pearl Drops and smeared it over the top of the background die cut. then lifted the die cut.

I then added a smear of Couture Creations Glitzin Glamour as well.

Then I added a line of Embossing and Foiling tape by Couture Creations and added some silver holographic foil.

I added some trim and white flowers that I spritzed the middle of with my pigment/hairspray mix. And the L'Aquarelle Mini Dragonfly die cut in white.

Then I added the L'Aquarelle DIY Dragonfly and some sequin and Couture Creations 3mm pearls and 2mm Gemstones. Then I added the entire mat to a card base made with Ultimate Crafts Card Stock.

I just love the shine that this card shines the pigment Powder, pearl drops and glitzin Glamour just add a depth of shine that is just gorgeous.

Hi Everyone 

Its always good to have a few cards made ready for any occasion. I was caught a little while ago without any cards on hand and thought it was time to put a few away again, so I started with this any occasion card featuring the Ultimate Crafts Rambling Rose Collection.

 I started by selecting a couple of pattern papers from the Rambling Rose Collection Pack

Then selected a matching cardstock and cut mats for a 5x7 inch card base and distressed the edges.

I attached these mats together to form the basis of my card then from the back of my pattern paper I cut a tag.

I distressed the edges of my tag then spritzed it with a little water to loosen the fibres and then scrunched it into a ball. Then I smoothed it back out and let it dry. 

I add the tag along with an Oh LaLa heart shaped Doily and a square from the other Rambling Rose Pattern paper that I distressed and inked the edges of. I then added some Black Magnolia Lane Lace for effect.

from the back of my second sheet of pattern paper I was able to cut a butterfly, bird bath and robin to add to my card as embellishments.


I added a bow of white ribbon and a pink Rose from the Rambling Rose 'Assorted Resin Pack.
I also added some Couture Creations Glitzin Glamour to the gorgeous robin and butterfly to finish off. I then added my card front to a grey coloured 5x7 card base made form Ultimate Crafts Silverstar Cardstock.
