Vintage tri-fold Project and Card

Hi there everyone, today its my turn on the Artdeco Creations blog with another project created with the new release collection - 
Ultimate Crafts - Artdeco Creations "Rambling Rose"
This paper collection was designed by the talented Australian 
designer "Sue Smyth" and it has been a very popular collection.

Here is my project a tri-fold decor piece.
Capturing the vintage feel in the papers and adding some foiling to the outer edges by using some normal foiling sheets, tacky glue and bone scorer.








Using the papers from the 
ULT157701 Ultimate Crafts Rambling Rose 12x12 paper pad.




I cut three panels of the wooden panels paper from the
ULT157701 Ultimate Crafts Rambling Rose 12x12 paper pad with the
Couture Creations Vintage Sign Nesting Die C0723956 
Inking the edges - these will be the back of my panels of my project.




For the front panels I cut three more pieces from of the
 ULT157701 Ultimate Crafts Rambling Rose 12x12 paper pad .

Using Couture Creations 2Way Glue Pen C0724037,
and a piece of the Couture Creations  Gold CO725355 Vintage matte Foil roll. I gently dabbed some glue around the edge of the papers and place the foil on top of the glued edges.


Gently rubbing the top of the foil with a bone scorer. 
I love the distressed look of this technique and it is an easy way to use foiling without any heating tool.



Once all done - I attached all the three panels together with a some small piece of paper from the wooden panel paper sheet.



Front side with Matte gold foiling edges.




I then cut three panels of the wooden panels paper from the
Couture Creations Vintage Signe Nesting Die C0723956 , the next size down.
Inking the edges - using a Circle nesting die cut a circle out of one of the panels.
I attached them all with Foam tape underneath.



Decorating the outer panels with lace and ribbons
Also team up with the Decorative die - 


Using the stamp set from the
Ultimate Crafts "L'Aquarelle" stampset ULT157796
Ultimate Crafts "L'Aquarelle" paper pad ULT157761
 I stamped the flower from the stampset onto some of the paper pad and added some colour inside the flowers with inks, then fuzzy cut them out.



Adding the flowers and foliage around the edges.


Rubbing some more Glue and gold foiling around the diecuts.






I have also a bonus card that I created as well, using the same technique of applying some glue with the 2 way glue pen and rubbing the gold foiling sheet around the raised edges of my embossed card. Again, it is not completely covered with all gold foiling but it is just a very simple way of adding some gold foiling to projects. It leaves a very distressed and vintage feel to any card or project.

Happy Stamping Cards

Hi there everyone, thanks for stopping by here today, I have a few cards that I have created with the Ultimate Craft Supplier of Happiness collection. This collection has 5 stamp sets, they are all very cute and have the sweetest of images.

Artdeco Creations has collaborated with the Ukrainian Artist Evgeniya Gapchinska and produced this collection, which is perfect for all paper tole, stamping and cardmaker lovers.

This collection has two A4 Paper pads, there are also some Decoupage Sheets, stickers and stamp sets which all compliment each other.

Today, I have created many cards with the stamp sets to show you all how easy it is to created quick cards. So grab yourself a coffee or tea, sit back and just take a look at some of the cards I created.

Firstly, here are two of my "Happy Birthday" cards.



The stamp sets are great way of making very quick, easy and unique cards 
Each image can be mixed and matched to compliment each other by using copic pens, inks or watercolour pencils and you can create so many cards for all occasions.




I have created the birthday cards using the 
ULT157970 Ultimate Crafts Supplier of Happiness - High Tea Stampset
along with some of the papers from the Paper pad 
ULT157951 Ultimate Crafts Supplier of Happiness A4 Paper pad.
But these stampset images are suitable for all types of projects.








Using the Ultimate Crafts Supplier Of Happiness Paper Pads for all the papers
and the ULT157970 Supplier of Happiness - High Tea Stampset

I combined the following ARTDECO CREATIONS products with my cards.
C0725043 Couture Creations Enchanted Tea Party Die set - Enchanted Frame
ULT157742 Ultimate Crafts Rambling Rose Happiness Stampset
ULT157639 Ultimate Crafts "Oohlala" Ribbon & Lace
CO724293 Couture Creations Tie Dyed Jewelled Florettes flower
C0724634 Couture Creations Chiffon Cream Adhesive pearls 

Once I stamped the image with my ink pad, I used watercolour pencils and coloured the images, I then very gently blended the colours with a waterbrush. Adding some touches of C0721974 Couture Creations Hot Pink Glitzin Glitter Glue and C0721976 Couture Creations Gold Glitzin Glitter Glue 
to the cake and candles to highlight them.





For my second card I used the Ultimate Crafts Supplier Of Happiness Paper Pads for all the papers
and the ULT157970 Supplier of Happiness - High Tea Stampset

together with the 
ULT157742 Ultimate Crafts Rambling Rose Happiness Stampset for 
"Happy Birthday".
ULT157639 Ultimate Crafts "Oohlala" Ribbon & Lace
ULT157630 Ultimate Crafts "Oohlala" Paper Lace Doilies
C0724634 Couture Creations Chiffon Cream Adhesive pearls 
C0723956 Couture Creations Vintage Signs Nesting Dies

Once I stamped the image, I coloured the images with watercolour pencils, I added some of the
C0721974 Couture Creations Hot Pink Glitzin Glitter Glue
C0721976 Couture Creations Gold Glitzin Glitter Glue
over the images of the the cupcakes.


I created another card with the same stampset
 ULT157970 Supplier of Happiness - High Tea Stampset
 I loved the birdcage stamp and the flowers, so I created a simple card with these stamps. Adding colour again with the water colour pencils.



Don't forget to stamp the images on the front of your envelopes, they compliment the card perfectly, then using some watercolour pencils and water brush blend the colours together. The possibilities are endless.




Here are some more cards that I created using another stampset, in the collection, ULT157971 Ultimate Crafts Supplier of Happiness Angelic Stampset 
and the little dog stamp image from the 


and for my last set of cards,
Using the cute teddy bear stamp image using the
ULT157972 Ultimate Crafts Supplier of Happiness Best Friends stampset
I made a sweet baby girl and baby boy cards. I just stamped the image on some of the papers from the paper pad of the Ultimate Craft Supplier of Happiness Collection, cut them out and glued them on to the card, adding some C0721974 Couture Creations Hot Pink Glitzin Glitter  on top of the teddy images, just for some added sparkle.


So, I hope I have inspired you all to create with this wonderful collection from the Ultimate Crafts Supplier Of Happiness 


Until next time,
Cheers Adriana  XXX
