Couture Crations and Core'dinations Blog Hop

Hi Crafters, I've created this layout use Couture Creations product and Core'dinations cardstock, hope you enjoy the techniques in this layout, but most of all have fun with it.

BUDDIES Layout and Sketch








To make Flowers using Couture Creations Victorain Square Nesting Dies, for the large flower use the 3 smallest dies, and cut four of each size, cut each square at the corners points (as shown above) add a brad to the centre, spritz with water, and scrunch each layer to the centre, when all layers are scrunched, gently open flower, for smaller flower drop off the large die, and use the 2 smaller ones, and repeat above steps .



Run your Core'dinations cardstock strips through the Couture Creations Embossing folder, then roughly sand with CC sanding block, remove sanding dust by using Core'dinations dust buddy


Using Core'dinations tags, Emboss them with CC folder All Occasions Super Plush and
sand and then stamp over them.


Emboss Chipboard title using All Occasions Cheerful folder, ink the top gently making sure most of the ink is on the raised embossing, add dimensional magic to the high areas, while still wet sprinkle over with glitter and shake off, put aside to dry.


From the CC Fantasia Doily Die Ivy set; use the small die, cut 2  doilies, stamp and ink edges, then  cut them in half and add a little bling with CC Gemstones Crystal

Add a few Flourishes with CC Decorative Dies, add a few more embellishments,
like hat pins, rub ons, butterfly, keys ect.
Arrange all the elements to your style, and now your done,
Enjoy

Playing with Clay

Hi there Ladies,
This month I thought I try something a little different with the Couture Creations Super Plush Embossing Folder, so I am having a little play with clay.


Here we go





Roll out some clay (air dry or over dry both work well) thinly and large enough to fit the folder, trim off top edge to make it straight, dust both sides of your Super Plush Folder with a little power, will help clay not to stick, place clay in folder and using a rolling pin roll over Folder firmly a couple of times, then carefully lift out.



Using the Couture Creations Precision Craft Knife and a ruler trim of excess clay, then cut clay into1"x1" squares, place aside to air dry, or pop in the over using directions on clay packaging,


Create an open circle using 2 of the Couture Creations Circle Nesting Dies, pop them together through your machine making a circle with a hole, emboss circle using Couture Creations Sweet Dreams Only one, run some glue over embossed areas and dust with glitter.

Cutting a strip of cardstock at 3x10" emboss along one edge using the Only One Folder, glue and glitter.


Once your clay cubes are dry, cover them completely with paint, let dry, use a hard surface ink to highlight the embossed pattern.



Add a little bling with Couture Creations Adhesive Gem Stone.

Arrange all elements to suit, Title, Chipboard etc. Adhere with Couture Creations Double Sided tape.
