COGS AND ARROWS

Hi Everyone 

I seem to struggle a bit with male orientated Cards, could be the fact that I have two daughters but every now and then they will be invited to a boys birthday party or such and I never ever have male/boy cards made up waiting to be used. So..... I thought I would give one a go using the Couture Creations Mikashet Emboss Folders and some Kalini Dies.


First off I embossed some white cardstock with the Couture Creations Mikashet Grungy Cogs n Gears Emboss Folder 



Then using some scrap cardstock I cut the Couture Creations Everyday Essentials Chevron Arrows 3 times.to form a stencil.


I then squeezed a good amount of Couture Creations Silver Glitzin Glamour into a small container and added some loose blue glitter and stirred to make my very own Glitter Paste.


Using the stencil I made from the Chevron Arrow I wiped the glitter paste over the top of my cogs n gears Embossed base.


I took the homemade stencil off to reveal my awesome pattern and then dried it with my Couture Creations Heat Tool 


I then added some white Muslin over the top and with the same embossing folder, embossed a chipboard star. 


Then I cut some cogs out with the Couture Creations Kalini Gears 2 Dies and along with Couture Creations Heat Tool and Non Stick Craft Mat embossed the gears with some silver embossing powder. 


Then I used the remaining bit of Glitter Paste on some arrow Chipboard, I then added all these to the fornt of my card. 


Right... That should do nicely for the next 6 yr old male birthday party that my daughter springs on me at the last minute because the invitation has been in her school bag for a fortnight!!!!

Something Different

Hi Everyone 

Something a little different today but very quick. One for those occasions that creep up on you and you need a quick all occasion card.


The back ground of this card was created with the Couture Creations Hearts Ease Garden Frame Embossing Folder and some inking spritz 


simply apply a few different colours of inking spritz to your embossing folder and add a piece of white card stock and roll through your favorite machine 


the ink will be dispersed by the Embossing and soaked up by the cardstock to reveal a almost watercolour effect.


then take a Couture Creations Camden Cottage rose and tear it into 3 separate pieces


take the largest piece and turn it upside down and pinch all the petals to give it a more 3D look. Then spritz the smallest piece in a matching colour. once dry put these 2 pieces together to form a beautiful blossom. (keep the middle piece for a later project)


Then with the Couture Creations Everyday Essentials Script Smile Die cut a few matching S's
I have used these S's as flourishes around my flower.


then cut a title from matching card stock with the Couture Creations Kalini Collection Life is Beautiful die and add to your card.


Then you have a bright and fun card ready for any occasion. 



Thanks so much for stopping by!
