"Grand Paris" Couture Creations Embossing folder


Hello there everyone,
is it my turn again today 
Today I have a few projects created with the
same Embossing folder -


This embossing folder can be used
just on it own on a card or as a tag for any special project.
Here are a few projects I created with the same folder.



I embossed a piece of white cardstock
then cut the embossed card straight in half,
I then inked them and mounted them on tags,
These tags will be used on some special
pages I have planned for the future!!




Here is another card which was featured
in the last issue Creative Inspirations #4 magazine

After embossing the paper in the folder
I gently inked the raised image with different coloured inks and
Couture Creations - sponge daubers
I embossed also a piece of
copper foil film and adhered it on the side
of the card, adding touches of flowers and words.
Mounting the whole image on a black card stock.



In my next card I embossed the folder with a piece of Kraft card stock and
gently inked with Vintage photo ink pad,
adding some photos of iconic images of Paris on the bottom of the card. 
A very Mono-chromatic card!



So, there you have some different examples of using the
same folder in three different ways.

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.
