Princess Bloom project with Adriana

Hi there everyone and welcome back to the Couture Creations blog, today I have created a special project using the cut, foil and emboss dies from the Peaceful Peonies 

I want to showcase how versatile Cut, foil and emboss dies are , I have foiled using the Go Press and Foil machine a few of the Leafy Branch Cut, foil and emboss die CO727416 to create a bloom of beautiful leaves and flowers as hair for my unique Flowers in her hair - Princess Bloom !! 

Firstly I created a background on the Couture Creations Yupo paper
with the Couture Creations Alcohol Inks Bubblegum Pearl Alcohol ink CO727373
using the Alcohol Blend solution CO727337 to spread the colour around the page.

 I then created many leaves with the  Peaceful Peonies 
Leafy Branch Cut, foil and emboss die CO727416
with card stock and 
Gold Heat activated foil

Did you know that you can foil on YUPO paper
Once the alcohol inks are dry, I foiled with Pink-Purple Heat activated foil, Using the Peaceful Peonies Spotted Butterfly cut, foil and emboss die CO737415

They foil and cut so beautifully !!!

Adding some Peaceful Peonies Layered trilliums flower CO727383 dies cut from Mirror board

March Challenge - ATC's

Adriana here today and  WELCOME BACK to the Couture Creations blog,
is my turn this month for our monthly challenge, I hope you can join in on a bit of crafting fun. For this month the challenge is to create a set of ATC.
What are ATC's ????? 

Artist trading cards or their common known names at (ATCs
is an art project initiated by the Swiss artist M. Vänçi Stirnemann back in 1997. 
Artist trading cards are 2.5 inches x 3.5 inches in size

(64 mm × 89 mm) in size, the same format as modern trading cards or baseball cards.

They are self-made unique works or small series, signed and dated on the reverse 

by the artist, some people even exchange them and collect them 

when people participate at a special event or show. Like retreats, special all day events and
cruises, they act as a memento of their time together. 

I have created a set of ATC's
adding some stamping and with a touch of foiling, of course..

I also have created another set of the same ones 
 with the New collection of papers

using papers - touch of stamping and inking

So I hope you can join in the fun and create a set of three ATC
you can use any papers, ephemera, dies, hot foil stamps and stamps from 
any Couture Creations collections. It's also a great way to 
use of leftovers from your crafting stash.
