Paris Layout - Meg's Garden

Hi there everyone,

today I have a project I created using the wonderful papers from 
"Meg's Garden of Papercraft delight" paper, 
The Gentlemen's Collectiondesigned by Kerry-Jean Watson.

Now another love of mine is the city of "PARIS".
I created a grungy and vintage Paris page with lots of layers,
bits and pieces with all embellishments which are
all available from Megs Garden Website.

Here is my page "PARIS"

Besides the black cardstock for the background, I
used a piece of corrugated card, I also embossed
a piece of kraft cardstock with some antique keys,
"Couture Creations embossing folder" and
distressed all the new paper collections 
The Gentlemen's Collection.

I also cut some Floral flowers with a Tim Holtz die
with the 
The Gentlemen's Collection papers.

 I also cut some leaves and stems with the papers as well.
Inking and creating the flowers I placed some cog
chipboards in the centre of them with brads.

Distressing all the layers of card stock and papers with distress tool and inks and paints.

With the chipboard frame, I painted with some gold paint and placed some
Tea stained Mica fragments also glued some Tea stained Mica fragments also on the side of the black background card stock.  

Tim holtz 
metal frame corners 
with some white paint of top of them.

Vintage card for Couture Creations

Hello there everyone, its my turn again at Couture Creations blog.

Today I have created a very simple and easy to do card.

Here is my step by step tutorial.......

1. Cut a piece of Core'dinations Card stock.
(this card stock is fabulous for sanding down embossed images) 

2. Emboss with the Ambassador Fleur de Lis embossing folder  C0723704
and lightly sand the image with C0723060 Couture Creations Sanding Block.

3. Place the piece of sanded embossed card stock on
a square card, as per my example below.

4. Cut 2 with  Nesting Dies - scallop oval C0723045
and vintage image with Nesting Dies - Oval  C0723044
Ink edges with  Sponge Daubers C0723623 and ink pad.
Adhere Couture Creations Double sided foam tape
underneath each die cut paper cut out,
and place on the front of the card, as shown.

2. Cut 3 Van Roe Lucky Tree Die C0723727, with
green cardstock and arrange cluster of flowers and leaves, 
adhering them all to the top left of card.

Add a sentiment or phrase - if you like.
