Couture Creations Design Team Application Round 2.

8:22:00 AM

So i made it through to round two of the Couture Creations Design team call - thanks so much!For the last round we needed to create a new project and i did this single page layout with a whole bunch of die-cuts and embossing on it. They really have amazing products!
i used this lovely paper pad Polka Dot Party from American Crafts and the delicate flower die cuts worked perfectly with it
nesting dies became frames to hold delicate vellum butterflies
another delicate vellum die-cut using the Floral 3-in-1 set cutting die
one of my favourite and go to dies is this beautiful delicate flower wreath - Assouline
embossing onto Co-ordinations cardstock after a bleach and gold acrylic paint treatment - fun effect
using my embossing folders to stamp onto my background for a fun and effective look
and here is how i created the different elements using my dies
step 1 - adhere two nesting dies together using washi tape strips to hold them securely. By adhering the two frames together you can cut thin frames to add photos or stamped images in. The left-over center pieces are great for decorating as elements too.
step 2 - cut the shapes using white cardstock and ink them using a die ink afterwards to add colour. i also stamped onto my elements once i inked them to add texture and pattern
step 3 - cut the wreath out of patterned paper and add diamante to flowers to finish them off
step 4 - how to stamp with your embossing folders
ink the bottom part of your Poetry embossing folder using Brilliance Lightning black ink pad. Press the ink pad onto the surface several times to add the ink. avoid dragging the ink pad as this will get ink on the areas around where you do not want ink
step 5 - turn the embossing folder over and lightly apply pressure onto the folder where the ink is. i use my fingers to apply the pressure while still holding the folder still to avoid the image from smudging and creating a halo effect
step 6 - carefully remove the folder from the stamped surface to reveal your stamped background iamge
step 7 - cut various shapes out of vellum and adhere them to your layout using Tombow Glue stick - the Tombow glue stick wont' leave any marks behind or any visible glue residue
I hope you enjoyed the different ways in which i used my collection of embossing folders and dies - there are really no limits when it comes to materials you can cut and emboss using the Couture Creations products.
