Cherish Dream Catcher Canvas

Hi everyone. :) Adriana back again and am so excited to be playing with the  wonderful new collection from
Ultimate Crafts - "Bohemian Bouquet"

designed by talented Denise Boddey







Today I have created a special project - a canvas using some of the new release dies from the fabulous 
Ultimate Crafts - "Bohemian Bouquet" collection

Lots of texture and layers.







Using the Ultimate Crafts - 
Bohemian Bouquet  "Bazaar" 6X6 Stencil  ULT158037
together with the Couture Creations
Anna Griffin Embossing Paste CO724870
I spread the embossing paste over the stencil with a palette knife
and then sprinkled some  CO724993 Couture Creations Super Sparkles Turquoise embossing powder, all over the wet paste and using my heat gun to set it dry.








Once all completed dry,  I dabbed a little bit of the
CO724871 Couture Creations Anna Griffin White Gesso with a pallet knife and randomly all over the canvas.





Adding some purple spray colour in the centre and letting it drip over down the canvas.





Cutting the following dies from the collection -

ULT158074 Ultimate Crafts Bohemian Bouquet Doily Die set
ULT158082 Ultimate Crafts Bohemian Bouquet Blooming Flowers.
with

Various Ultimate Crafts Coloured Cardstock 12 x 12, 
(listed at the end of my post)








Placing this in the top part of the canvas and adding
some white paper flowers from
CO724293 Couture Creations Jewelled Florettes in the centre with
foliage from cut from the following dies
ULT158056 Ultimate Crafts Bohemian Bouquet - Classic Branch &
CO725047 Couture Creations Enchanted Tea Party Bouquet die






I also cut a few of the 
ULT158329 Ultimate Crafts "It's Beginning to look like Christmas"
Christmas Border Die with the 
CO725410 Couture Creations Mirror Gold Foil Board.



Adding Pearls
C0725373 Couture Creations Lavender Pearls & C0725379 Deep Pink Pearls

Decorating the Christmas Tree layout

Hi everyone, Adriana here again, today and I am sharing a layout created with  new release products from 
Artdeco Creations - Couture Creations - Ultimate Crafts -
"It's Beginning to look like Christmas".  

All the products I used to create my projects today are listed at the end 
of this blog post. Together with the Go Press and foil Machine, and some of the hot foil stamps from the collection. "It's beginning to look like Christmas" is a very wonderful traditional Christmas collection. The 12 x 12 paper pads are excellent for creating perfect page memories of Christmas times together with family.

"Decorating the Christmas tree" layout by Adriana Bolzon















I created the background with the pine stem clear stamp from the
"It's Beginning to look like Christmas".  

Stamping and embossing the image with the Couture Creations Moss Stone Embossing powder CO725005, I love the dark green gloss colour, which stands out on the page.









With the same stamp pine stem I inked and stamp with a vintage photo ink pad, for added depth.



Using the same pine stem leaf stamp and 
Couture Creations White chunky embossing powder CO724963 
onto the middle page part of my paper page, as shown below.



Adding clusters of flowers and branches of stems and also
"It's beginning to look like Christmas" ULT158318 Christmas flourish die underneath the photograph.
Stamping some of the pinecones from the Cardinal and Poinsettia stamp set ULT158303, onto a piece of card stock then cutting them out and adhering then under the cluster of flowers and leaves. 




Using the circle framed die from the "Wreathed Wise Men" die ULT158315 which is die cut from Gold Mirror board C0725407 and hot foiling the word "Season's Greetings" ULT158335 on a piece of the paper pad from the collection "It's beginning to look like Christmas" together with the Go, Press and Foil machine.

World Card Making Day 2017 !!


Hi everyone, today is WORLD CARD MAKING DAY and I am sharing a few cards that I have created with some of the new release products from 
Artdeco Creations - Couture Creations - Ultimate Crafts -
"It's Beginning to look like Christmas".  
This collection has some amazing dies and hot foil stamps
and also there are three large fabulous stamp sets - perfect for stamping and also using them with embossing powders!! That's how I created all the backgrounds of my projects today!!

All the products that I have used to create these cards are listed at the end 
of each card that I have created.

Today I wanted to showcase one of the large stamp from the Ultimate Crafts
"It's beginning to look like Christmas" collection called the
 "Fractal Snowflakes" ULT158305.



I have created my cards with this is quite a large stamp - 5"x7" which is perfect for so many different projects, and because it is 5'X7' it doesn't mean that your project has to be that size - you could use a little section of the stamp design for your project.


ULT158305 Fractal Snowflakes.

Using an embossing ink pad or Versamark ink pad and some embossing powders you can create some wonderful projects. I used the
Couture Creations Embossing Powders "Chunky White" CO724967
and the
Couture Creations Embossing Powder "Kettle Copper Bronze"Co724967 
I stamped my piece of white card stock 4"x6" with the stamp and I then sprinkled the powders and heated it with my heat gun, to set the powders.

Adding some blue oxide hue of colour to the background - on both my cards
for the background colour!



Matting the snowflake panels on white card stock and Bronze Mirror Board
 and then
cutting two of the 
Craft Concepts Label die "Grace" CR381113  with white card stock.
(ask for it from your local paper craft store to get it in for you, this is note. new release die but still available from Artdeco Creations, so perfect to use with the Go Press, Foil & Machine by Couture Creations,)

Craft Concepts- Label Die "GRACE" CR381113



Using the "It's beginning to look like Christmas "Season's Greetings" hot foil stamp from the same collection and together with the awesome  
"Go Press and Foil" machine -  I foiled the words "Season's Greetings" 
on the die cut labels.
