Decorating the Christmas Tree layout

Hi everyone, Adriana here again, today and I am sharing a layout created with  new release products from 
Artdeco Creations - Couture Creations - Ultimate Crafts -
"It's Beginning to look like Christmas".  

All the products I used to create my projects today are listed at the end 
of this blog post. Together with the Go Press and foil Machine, and some of the hot foil stamps from the collection. "It's beginning to look like Christmas" is a very wonderful traditional Christmas collection. The 12 x 12 paper pads are excellent for creating perfect page memories of Christmas times together with family.

I created the background with the pine stem clear stamp from the
"It's Beginning to look like Christmas".  

Stamping and embossing the image with the Couture Creations Moss Stone Embossing powder CO725005, I love the dark green gloss colour, which stands out on the page.









With the same stamp pine stem I inked and stamp with a vintage photo ink pad, for added depth.



Using the same pine stem leaf stamp and 
Couture Creations White chunky embossing powder CO724963 
onto the middle page part of my paper page, as shown below.



Adding clusters of flowers and branches of stems and also
"It's beginning to look like Christmas" ULT158318 Christmas flourish die underneath the photograph.
Stamping some of the pinecones from the Cardinal and Poinsettia stamp set ULT158303, onto a piece of card stock then cutting them out and adhering then under the cluster of flowers and leaves. 




Using the circle framed die from the "Wreathed Wise Men" die ULT158315 which is die cut from Gold Mirror board C0725407 and hot foiling the word "Season's Greetings" ULT158335 on a piece of the paper pad from the collection "It's beginning to look like Christmas" together with the Go, Press and Foil machine.

World Card Making Day 2017 !!


Hi everyone, today is WORLD CARD MAKING DAY and I am sharing a few cards that I have created with some of the new release products from 
Artdeco Creations - Couture Creations - Ultimate Crafts -
"It's Beginning to look like Christmas".  
This collection has some amazing dies and hot foil stamps
and also there are three large fabulous stamp sets - perfect for stamping and also using them with embossing powders!! That's how I created all the backgrounds of my projects today!!

All the products that I have used to create these cards are listed at the end 
of each card that I have created.

Today I wanted to showcase one of the large stamp from the Ultimate Crafts
"It's beginning to look like Christmas" collection called the
 "Fractal Snowflakes" ULT158305.



I have created my cards with this is quite a large stamp - 5"x7" which is perfect for so many different projects, and because it is 5'X7' it doesn't mean that your project has to be that size - you could use a little section of the stamp design for your project.


ULT158305 Fractal Snowflakes.

Using an embossing ink pad or Versamark ink pad and some embossing powders you can create some wonderful projects. I used the
Couture Creations Embossing Powders "Chunky White" CO724967
and the
Couture Creations Embossing Powder "Kettle Copper Bronze"Co724967 
I stamped my piece of white card stock 4"x6" with the stamp and I then sprinkled the powders and heated it with my heat gun, to set the powders.

Adding some blue oxide hue of colour to the background - on both my cards
for the background colour!



Matting the snowflake panels on white card stock and Bronze Mirror Board
 and then
cutting two of the 
Craft Concepts Label die "Grace" CR381113  with white card stock.
(ask for it from your local paper craft store to get it in for you, this is note. new release die but still available from Artdeco Creations, so perfect to use with the Go Press, Foil & Machine by Couture Creations,)

Craft Concepts- Label Die "GRACE" CR381113



Using the "It's beginning to look like Christmas "Season's Greetings" hot foil stamp from the same collection and together with the awesome  
"Go Press and Foil" machine -  I foiled the words "Season's Greetings" 
on the die cut labels.
