Well my time on the Couture Creations is fast coming to an end. I have had a wonderful time on this team and absolutely love their products that when the call went out for the new DT for 2014 I had to put my hand up for another go.
Here are my projects that I am submitting.
I decided to go with 2 cards and 2 layouts.
For my first card I have used some distressed ink and the Powder Puff embossing folder. Teamed it with a doily die and my heart nesting dies and then finished with my sentiment and a blossom. Added some Glitzing Glamour for some sparkle.
I love how this turned out with the soft pastel colours.
My second card I stuck with the soft pastel colours again. This time I used some Co-ordinations cardstock and a couple of my favourite Couture embossing folders.
I then used one of my favourite doily dies and the beautiful butterfly die. This is another favourite :) Added my sentiment and a blossom in the middle of the butterfly. I did cheat a little on this card and instead of hand stitching all around my squares, I faux stitched with a white gel pen and my trusty paper piercer.
I love love love how this layout turned out! I used a variety of Couture doily dies and cut my photo in to a circle using my circle nesting dies, instead of the usual shape photo. I placed a heap of flowers around the page and then tucked in a few black flourishes for to make my page "pop". I have again used the butterfly die and added some gemstones to the middle. This time I decided to hand stitch around my page and also up through the middle of my banners. A bit of texture paste and some stamping for a little extra interest and my page was done.
This last layout is definitely a little different for me! So bright and cheery. I have used the chevron embossing folder on some pattern paper and sanded it back to show the white underneath. Using the star border die I cut two but reversed one to make a bit of a border along the bottom of the photos.
I cut 2 hearts from the nesting dies using cereal boxes and then cut them again using patterned paper to fit directly over the top. Just gives it a little more dimension. My Victorian Rectangle nesting dies always seem to get a good workout as they are so good for sliding in different places to use as tags.
Seriously I have had the best time ever on this wonderful team. Good luck to all the other gals that are trying out for the team.
Until next time
