Hello Ladies
December is here, and today I have a sweet little card, for you, it could be used for Christmas, birthday anything, with just a colour change.
We are visiting a few of Couture Creations earlier collections, Kalini, Everyday Essentials,

First I cut my card to size, and a second panel, which I sanded the edges using our sanding block
Here I've used two of the petite doily collection, Lotus Daily, Glamor and Grace, to make the flowers, cut 3 of each doily, adhere each one in the centre, with the Glue Pen let dry, spritz with water crunch each layer, into the middle, when dry gently reopen, and some gemstones to the centre
take the Kalini Swinging on a tree, using the tree section only, cut 4, these we are using as the greenery, behind the flowers
Now to the New Pearl Drops, smear some of the Everygreen over your card, around the flower spray
Cutting the baby butterfly form Everyday Essentials Edith and baby, here I added a little
Close up of flower spray, add some cottage roses to fill out the spray
Add a little Pearl Drops Pharach to give the New York Street Light, a glow
Hope you like my card

Well Hello Everyone
Welcome to my 1st November post
Today I'm stepping back a few collections,
to play with a couple of old favourites form 
 Kalini Collection and Secert Gardens
OK this is a quick layout for you all taday


First I took the Secert Gardens Pointy Fence , and cut enough to run along,
2 sides of my pattern paper from the Heart Ease 12x12 pad,
 these I have run along the left side and top

On the right side and into the bottom corner, use a 3 Sponge Doubers and 3 shades of ink,
 and  Cog Stencil, to make a grunge edge


Here I cut one each of Secert Gardens 3 Letter Boxes, added a few Gem stones, popping these at different hights behind my cog cluster

Cut a the full set of Kalini Gears # 2 , this I cut from a core cardstock, turning one over, and add a little silver ink with a Sponge Douber, these I laid over the chipboard cogs, to make a bigger cluster,
again adding a few Gem Stones  

 Gem stones galour on this layout, I added them to this chipboard corner, to make it pop

Well thats that, add a Title, and some bitz'n bobs and you all done,
hope you ejoyed, and never stop having a play with old favourite.

I've make a simply lovely cad for you today

Run a piece of core cardstock through you machine, in a SNOW STORM embossing folder, using the Sanding Block, lightly rub back to the core

 Here I've used the Snow Storm embossing folder, on the backing piece of the Joy die, and then lightly inked the raises areas, with a douber

 glue the J and Y directly to the Joy base, then mount the O with 3d mini foam dots

 cut one of the, Holy Flourish, and add that touch of glamour, with some Silver Glitz'n Glamour, this has been tucked in behind the finished Joy

Finished Joy

Explore, Dream, Wish

Hi all, and welcome to October.
Today I'm sharing a little card I whipped up, using
 Here I used a 6x6 Hearts Ease Pattern Paper, which I randomly stamped the small pocket watch stamp over
 Take the large Pocket Watch and Hour Glass, stamp it onto white cardstock and then cut them out, I raised these with 3D foam dots, the our Hour Glasses 3D dots were doubled up, to make it a little higher than the Watch.
 Using the Words from the Stamp set, I created my title
 Have fun with these super stamp

Out and About

My goodness September all ready ladies
Today I'm sharing a layout, using the lovely
This one can get a bit messy, so have some wipes at hand

First I cut out, one of each Petite doily, place them randomly over my base cardstock, and gave them a spritz, then removed, them to show the masked doily, don't throug the Doilies away, let them dry.
when dry randomly place, over your base cardstock, using them as a stencil, wipe any type of texture paste over the doilies,
(add some Glitz'n and glamour, glitter or just about anything to add that bit of sparkle)

Now to make our petite doily flowers, again choose four or five different dioly dies, and cut out 3 of each, use the turbo glue pen, to dot a small amount of glue, to the centre of each set of die cuts, and layer them, place aside to let glue dry. Once dry, spritz with water and scrunch each layer in to the centre, repeat this on all your sets, allow to dry a little, the gently open up your flowers.

Close up of flowers

Here I've added a favourite, from the Everyday Essentals collection; Strawbery leaf, on the leaves I dotted some Glitz'in Glamour Gold

 simply cut serval Petite Doilies in half and clued them behind my matted photo

And we're done, once you add a title, and any other bits and pieces, you may wish to add
