DREAM LOVE

Hi Everyone 

I hae to say it is just so easy to make cards when your using the new Ultimate Crafts Rambling Rose Collection. I realise that we are all very strapped for time these days with kids, work and sport etc so when someones birthday or special occassion creeps up on us we are normally unprepared. 
so here is a very quick card that can be done in about 15/20 minutes.



 start with a 6x6 Ultimate Crafts card stock base and then cut the gorgeous pattern paper from the Rambling Rose Pattern Paper Pad. If you choose this particular paper you will see that the roses mirror each other on each side.


I simply cut a mat from one side of the pattern paper then I fussy cut the other roses and leaves from the left over side. And mounted them with Couture Creations Foam Mounting Tape. Using different heights for differnet levels 


I also cut the gorgeous butterfly out to 3D him. then using the Couture Creations Glitzin Glamour I added some sparkle to my roses. leaves and butterfly. 


To finish off I cut a frame from the Rambling Rose Ephemera set diagonally and added it to the top corner of my card. Then using some word stamps I added a couple of sentiments. 

ALL DONE!!!
Next time you get caught unaware grab your Ultimate Crafts Rambling Rose and you will have not trouble creating something wonderful in just a few minutes.

Picture It

Hi Everyone 

First of all I just want to thank everyone who joined us at Creative Inspiration Live. And a special thanks to all those who participated in my little challenges. I do hope it woke you all up enough to get you through the last part of the afternoon.
Last time I checked our Mannequin challenge video had been viewed just under 2000 times. 

Now onto my blog post, which I must inform you all that whilst making this card my power went out so finished it by torch light. (note to self: do not scrap using the torch on your phone as your battery will run low and you will not have an alarm for the next morning!!!) So I do apologies for bad lighting on my pictures. 


I must say I am in love with the New Ultimate Crafts Rambling Rose Collection by Sue Smythe. It is just gorgeous and so very easy to work with.
I started with one of the papers from the Rambling Rose paper pad and cut a card mat from it to suit a 5x7 card base.


On the reverse side of the pattern paper was some gorgeous frames so I cut one out then cut the middle from it (dont do this in torch light its definitely not good) and attached the middle to my card front and the lifted the frame around it using Couture Creations Foam Mounting Tape.


Then using the amazing embellishments for the Rambling Rose collection including the Cabochons, resin flowers, pin wheels , pearls and the ephemera pack I created this pretty little cluster at the left hand bottom of the frame. (OMG!! the embellishments are gorgeous!) 


this cute little butterfly was also on my pattern paper so I cut him out and gave him a fresh coat of Couture Creations Irridescent Glitter and popped him on my frame. 
I mounted all this on a mat and cardstock made from matching Ultimate Craft Cardstock.

This card is super quick and easy for all those time when you get caught without one already made!

Thanks so much for stopping by...
