In this class you will create a distressed paper background and create your own distressed paper flowers using Couture Creations dies. You will also use sprays to change add some colour to your chipboard and flowers
Never again will you not have the perfect flower for your project.
Everything you need to complete the layout is included in your kit including a Couture Creations Die for you to keep
Need to bring
Double Sided Tape
Paper Piercer or Knife to use to apply gemstones
Ink Pad if you would like to ink your page 4x6 landscape photo (can be added later if you are not sure what photo to bring)
I highly recommend spending and hour or so diecutting and embossing, you can then store them in a container so when you do need a quick card you don't have to worry about getting your die cutting machine out as you have a supply ready to go
Ho everyone sorry for the lateness of this recap I have been busy prepping for the next Craft & Quilt Fair in Launceston and catching up on everything at home.
Sydney was fantastic, although wet and gloomy for most of the time it was still an amazing show with lots of creative people filling the venue.
Again I forgot to take photos of everyone doing my Make & Take classes, maybe I will remember in Launceston, I am too busy teaching and talking :)
Anyway thanks again to everyone who came along to visit me and take one of my classes, you were all so lovely and I really enjoyed meeting you all
To the person or persons who decided to steal my class kits and class sample right before I was due to teach a class ....What can I say but that was a very low act and karma will get you.
Not only by you stealing those kits to you put a damper on the show for me but also those who had paid to do my make & take and the classes afterwards.
I truly hope it was worth it for you and thank you for at least leaving the tools and adhesives.
I didn't let that horrible person ruin my time at the show as one awful person is stomped out but thousands of fabulous people
here are some photos to prove it ...sorry lots of photos
firstly some photos of my displays on my stand
I have to say I loved the venue, it was so light and airy inside and catching a ferry to work each day was fantastic
not a bad view back of the city either
My love card on the huge Welcome sign
This event is massive If you are a crafter you really should plan a Sydney getaway when the show is on ...i was surprised how many people do but I know why an amazing show with so many displays and exhibitors
Expertise Events staff and some of the Exhibitors getting into it before the day starts
my view the end of Day 1
The view i would have had if I had left 5 mins ealier
my not too shabby ride each day
Finally I got to meet this fabulous lady in person after chatting online and on the phone for the past 2.5 years ..so great to meet you Bridget and thanks for the coffee
and look who also popped up for a visit all the way from her country retreat in Yass ...it was fabulous seeing you and Tegan Denise ..they even did my Make & Take Class ..this is the one I had to come up with to replace the stolen class kits
and then there was the food and outings
Starting with dinner for 1 at the Hard Rock Cafe
I also went to see this ...AWESOME so glad I did I loved it, I just walked in without booking and got a fabulous seat ..it pays to be a loner :)
at the gorgeous Capital Theatre
I had drinkies at Cyren with the fabulous Svenja who had a fan club with almost every Chinese/Japanese tourist coming for a photo with her ..they were so cute asking her for a photo
and then there is the mess I create while demoing
and the things that keep me going delivered with love from the fabulous Teena of Craft Giraffe fame
and this was home for the 5 nights I was in Sydney ..It was gorgeous and the staff were fabulous ..loved it and would stay there again and I highly recommend staying there ..it was a short walk to the ferry each day and a lovely walk to the city 1888 Hotel
Hi Everyone Kerrie here
with a quick tutorial for using
the Elegant Card Cuts, Mercato Flourish Die and some metallic flakes
(what is not to love about theses)
Firstly cut a piece of cardstock to 6" x 12", position your die onto the cutting machine plate and then line up your cardstock and run through the machine.
Don't forget your quick release die paper, you don't want anything sticking into the die
This die only cuts out the center pieces, so using a magnetic platform is a good idea to stop the die from slipping but if you don't have one you can use some removable tape to stop it slipping
next using your trimmer and embossing tool, score the center fold line
add some 6 mm double sided tape around the edges of the card
remove the backing paper and sprinkle on the metallic flakes, pressing them onto the tape and rubbing off slightly.
I have left mine messy as I like this look but if you want a cleaner look rub right back
I then die cut Dream and layered in onto a scrap of cardstock, sponging both with ink. I diecut the bonus piece of Mercato die, sprayed my flower with a metallic spray and then while it was still wet rubbed it onto the craft mat and got some of the scrap metallic flakes on it. Adhere them onto your card add a backing piece of paper your are finished.
Here is a bonus project that I also used the metallic flakes on
It is a small embroidery hoop
I placed a piece of patterned paper onto the hoop decorated with dies and ribbon
then I placed the 12mm double sided tape around the edge of the wooden hoop and added the flakes to the edge of the hoop
I hope you have enjoyed my quick tutorial
The Elegant Card Cuts have 5 different dies in the collection which are all fabulous for creating quick cards
