Celebrate 75

#kerriegurney
#ultimatecrafts #couturecreationsaus

Hi everyone, Kerrie here
It was my Daddio's 75th birthday in November and I created this special card for him using Ultimate Crafts Ooh La La Collection along with a Couture Creations Stencil, Chunky Aged Copper Embossing Powder and a Ornamental Affair Delilah Doily Die
This card is super quick to create and is created from scraps...
shhhhh don't tell my dear old Dad that :)  


 Firstly I ink my chipboard numbers with Versamark and then sprinkled on Couture Creations Chunky aged Copper Embossing Powder
(these chipboard numbers are from Heidi Swapp's original collection release way back, yes i am a hoarder and have 3 boxes of them still )


Make sure to really cover the chipboard


Tap off excess powder and return it to the container and then heat set the embossing powder using a Couture Creations Heat Tool


You can see when the powder is all molten and leave to set which doesn't take long at all.
I love all the colours in this powder


Next I inked the whole of my card front using  brown dye ink on a sponge dauber and the
Couture Creations Be Merry, Christmas Threads Stencil 


I also coloured my Delilah Doily using the sponge dauber and brown dye ink too


Using some scrap pieces of Ultimate Crafts Ooh La La papers I cut them into pennants and distressed and inked the edges of all my paper and cardstock pieces.
Then I assembled my card, adding some metal charms to complete the card.

Rebecca's Baby Shower Double Layout | Couture Creations Ultimate Crafts

#kerriegurney
#couturecreationsaus #ultimatecrafts

Hi Everyone
Kerrie here with a layout I created for a class I taught last month using Ultimate Crafts Ooh La La Collection
I had so many beautiful photos of my niece with us all at her baby shower and I really didn't want to leave any out. It is not often we get to catch up especially as my niece lives in Dubai.
So I Created a photo flap to hold all the photos


Lift the photo flaps to reveal more photos. I would have preferred to mount the two middle photos but I was restricted to keeping to the products in the kit. I will probably pull them off and mount them.



Instructions
1.       Mix Gold Pigment  into Embossing Paste and mix together, then using pallet knife or lifting tool spread paste randomly over Studded Quatrefoil Stencil (Tip; I cut the ends off my stencil so that I could join the pattern)
2.       Sprinkle on Gold Glitter and set aside to dry
3.       Cut a piece from Kahlua Cardstock 28cm x 24cm and fold in half with to create a piece 28cm x 12cm this will be used as your photo flap. Cut from remaining 6.5cm strip 2 x 12cm pieces and keep the end piece you will create tags from all 3 pieces
4.       Cut from Wrapped with Gold 1 x 27.5cm x  11.5cm, 1 x 30cm x 2.5cm  and 2 x 10cm x 12cm
5.       Cut from Florals in Chocolate 1 x 30cm x 9cm and 2 x 11cm x 9cm
6.       Distress and Ink the Edges of all pieces. (You can choose to keep the middle section pieces as one piece and place onto layout and cut later or cut into two before layering onto page)
7.       Layer all pieces onto base cardstock as per photo, making sure to add diecut pieces  between layers on photo flap
8.       Add lace trim, gold cotton and ornate diecut pieces
9.       Pluck the centre from one of the Magnolia Lane flowers to create two different size flowers, ink all flowers and give a spritz of water to blend the ink
10.    Ink Muslin using Brown Ink Pad and spritz with water to soften colour
11.    Create pennant pieces from scrap pieces and diecuts
12.    Create a faux bow with Gold Cotton  and adhere to journaling Tag
13.    Add flower cluster tucking is pieces of Muslin and Gold Cotton  to add softness to cluster and some pearls to flower center and top of journaling tag

14.    Finish off with a line border using a black gel pen


here is a closer look at some of the details including the cluster which also doubles as the tag lift.
It was such a beautiful location and so lovely to get to spend time with my family at such a special time for my niece.


I created these bonus two tags with the left overs. Tags or Cards are a fabulous way to use up your left over scraps rather than throwing them out or having them sit around in a box.

Tag instructions; 
Use Ooh La La Calvin’s Quatrefoil Embossing Folder, scraps of patterned paper, the barcode strip from your layout, some Diecut Ephemera Sentiments, Magnolia Flower, Muslin, Twine, Sequins and Pearls to create these embossed tags, which you can either pop onto a layout or on a card front as a quick embellishment. 




Products Used
Brown Dye Ink Pad
Gold Cotton
Muslin

Photo sizes; 7 x 3x4 and 4 x 4x3
