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.

metal frame corners 
with some white paint of top of them.

Vintage card for Couture Creations



Hello there everyone, its my turn again at Couture Creations blog.

Today I have created a very simple and easy to do card.



Here is my step by step tutorial.......

1. Cut a piece of Core'dinations Card stock.
(this card stock is fabulous for sanding down embossed images) 

2. Emboss with the Ambassador Fleur de Lis embossing folder  C0723704
and lightly sand the image with C0723060 Couture Creations Sanding Block.



3. Place the piece of sanded embossed card stock on
a square card, as per my example below.







4. Cut 2 with  Nesting Dies - scallop oval C0723045
and vintage image with Nesting Dies - Oval  C0723044
Ink edges with  Sponge Daubers C0723623 and ink pad.
Adhere Couture Creations Double sided foam tape
underneath each die cut paper cut out,
and place on the front of the card, as shown.



2. Cut 3 Van Roe Lucky Tree Die C0723727, with
green cardstock and arrange cluster of flowers and leaves, 
adhering them all to the top left of card.

So,  here is my layout
I created the background with Couture Creations "The Marriott" collection
"Wire Barbs" C0723676

Layout titled "Travel Snap Shots"


To create the background - 
I gently applied some paints to the raised side of your embossing folder.




Place embossing folder on the
black cardstock, pressing firmly on to the cardstock, and randomly
stamp over the cardstock.




Gently lift off your embossing folder to reveal your
stamped image ...



TIp:  please make sure that you clean and wipe the excess paint once
you have finished creating your page.



I then embossed several pieces of card stock with the
embossing folder and lightly sanded down the embossed image.


With the chipboards I applied some paints , then once dry
I applied some glossy accents




Here is the list of Imaginarium Designs chipboards I used for my page

Travel Snap Shots IDW0053


and list of Couture Creations Embossing folder and Dies.
