Bohemian Bouquet Card

Hello crafters!  Jo here with you today to share a card using the new Bohemian Bouquet collection due for release later this month.  I was also playing with some embossing paste.  This paste works beautifully in silicone moulds.
Here is how I create my frame.  I simply spread some of the embossing paste into the mould and let air dry.  I find this works best if left over night.
They then just slide out of the mould and are ready to be prettied up.
For my frame, I mixed a bit of the pink pigment powder with some liquid hairspray in a small bottle and then spritzed my frame.  When that was dry I added in random spots some glue, using the 2 way glue pen.  Let it dry a bit but still a little tacky and then dab scraps of gold foil over my frame
I then teamed it up with some of the papers from the Bohemian Bouquet paper range and the Speckled Flowers embossing folder.  I matted my papers onto the stunning gold line gold papers.  Adhered my frame and added my small flower cluster at the bottom.

Thanks for stopping by
Until next time

Let Every Day Be Christmas with Couture Creations

Hi and welcome back!
Today I have a quick layout to share with you using the super pretty Let Every Day Be Christmas collection
So recently I have really been on struggle street with my creativity.  I think we all have periods of time like that!  Looking at a full size 12 x 12 piece of paper was totally overwhelming me. So - I decided to have a go at an A4 size.  It was perfect as it allowed me to go  nuts on my clusters and layering that I love but not have to worry about a full size page.
Here is a close up.
I layered some papers from the A4 paper pad and also tucked under some of the ephemera.
The collection also come with some stunning chipboard.  I have used that gorgeous frame and inked it in gold and the small sprigs I have embossed in gold embossing powder.  Added some flowers and pearl clusters and BING!  All done! 

Thanks so much for stopping by
Until next time
