Christmas Blooms by KATRINA THOMPSON

#artdecocreations   #couturecreationsaus    #ultimatecrafts  

 Hello and Welcome. Thankyou for joining with me again today to see the last in a set of 4 card creations using the "It's Beginning to look a lot like Christmas" collection by Tina Higgins.
For this project I have created a Christmas Bouquet by layering and fussy cutting the 12x12 patterned papers, along with the adhesive chipboard, Vellum Decoupage sheet and the Merry Christmas Die. Deconstructing and decorating the 2pc Velvet Christmas Poinsettia flower to use as the feature will give you a few more ideas on how to make the most of items in your collection.

Prepping our flowers:
Pull 1 layer away from the back of the large White Camden beaded flower so it's not so thick.
Remove the diamante from the centre of the Florette.
Remove the back layer from the 2.5cm English Rose. Cover the 3 flowers/petals in a layer of the Crystalina Glitz'n Glamour to give them a shimmer.
Ink the small English rose in a yellow shade.
Remove the beaded centre from the velvet poinsettia flower. Flip over as we are going to use the reverse. Cover the reverse in a layer of the Crystalina.

Constructing the flowers:
Once dry, attach the large White Camden to the Poinsettia as pictured.
Attach the small yellow English Rose into the centre of the larger English Rose petal that we removed earlier. Glue and wrap around to create a casing as pictured, then glue the combination to the centre of the Florette petal.

Along with your deconstructed flowers -
Fussy cut 2 of the white flowers with foliage from the 12x12 prints as pictured.
Pull 2 of the foliage  pieces from the Adhesive chipboard pack.
Remove the red berries from the velvet Holly Leaves.
Die cut the Merry Christmas from Garnet cardstock and cover with a layer of Crystalina, then cut a piece of Snow White cardstock to use as a base, 12.7cm wide x  17.7cm high.

Pop 3 of the Vellum flowers from the sheet. Cut them into various combinations of patterns.

All at a height of 17.7cm, cut a strip of foliage print 2cm wide, a Snow White Strip 1cm wide and a Red polka dot strip 1.5cm wide. Cut a piece of thin scalloped lace as pictured and a large piece of matching patterned paper 10.8cm wide x 17.7cm high.

Ink around the edges of all the patterned pieces with a red ink. Distress the large piece.
Layer each of the pieces in order, as they are arranged above, overlapping at different intervals to fit edge to edge on the Snow White base.

Begin to arrange your Bouquet onto your decorative base.
Glue through the centre of your pieces, allowing room around the outer edges to lift, shape and tuck other elements.
Start with the large focus flower and holly leaves. Once in place, add the chipboard pieces then the small flower, starting to create a teardrop shape as pictured.

Continue to fill your bouquet by adding the fussy cut flowers and foliage then arranging the Vellum pieces as pictured.

To finish, add the Merry Christmas sentiment.

Until next time, Happy Creating! Kx

Bohemian Beauty by JULIE SCHINKEL

#artdecocreations   #couturecreationsaus    #ultimatecrafts  

Hi everyone! It's Julie here back on the blog today sharing a layout that I created using the new release "Bohemian Bouquet" collection from Ultimate Crafts, designed by Denise Bodey. I absolutely love this collection! There's four colour combinations and designs that you can use separately or mix and match for some added contrast. The possibilities are endless! For this layout, I've used a photo of Delta Goodrem for this layout as Delta's style is very "Bohemian" and perfect for this collection.

I started by taking two of the patterned papers from the 12x12 paper pad. I've randomly torn both pages top and bottom. Start with the yellow flower patterned piece then once you have torn your first strip, line it up on top of the blue patterned paper so you know roughly where to tear it. Line these two pieces on top of the yellow patterened paper and tear another strip. Repeat the process for the bottom layers. Once you have your strips, alternate and attach the layers to reassemble your page as shown below. Ink around the whole page using tumbled glass, or similar blue toned ink.

You should end up with a leftover piece looking someting like this. Cut into four random sized pieces, these will be used for the photo mat.

I've then taken the same blue patterned paper from the 6x6 paper pad to use as the main photo mat. If you don't have the 6x6 paper pad, use the same patterned piece from the 12x12 paper pad. Adhere your photo then trim down leaving approximately a 1/4 inch border around the photo.

From the four pieces of leftover paper, assemble around the photo as shown. I ended up cutting some pieces in half to fill in the spaces. There are no measurements as I've just cut these pieces down randomly. Ink all layers with tumbled glass before adhering.

I've cut down some thick cardboard from an old box to give the photo mat some extra dimension. You can use foam tape/squares/dots if you prefer. I find the cardboard is much more sturdy, especially for large areas.

The main flower is a La Belle Vintage Bloom coloured with salty ocean distress ink mixed with water on a non stick craft mat. Pre soak your flowers with water first as it helps the colour to spread easily over the flowers. Cover the stamens with Pharoah Liquid Pearl 3D Drops.

For the Tye Died Jewelled Florette flowers, I decided to add some shimmer by mixing yellow pigment powder to some spiced marmalade/fossilised amber distress inks and water. Blue pigment powder was also added to the tumbled glass/salty ocean distress inks for the Camden Cottage Roses.

 Next, I've taken some baby blue glitter paper and die cut five pieces using the Classic Branch Decorative Die. Four go on the flower cluster to the left of the photo and one cut in half for the top right cluster. Take the Geo Flower Decorative Die and cut one piece from some Marigold cardstock. Cut in half and arrange on the layout as shown. Ink the Bouquet Doily Chipboard with fossilised amber distress ink, cut in half then one half in halves again and arange as shown. Adhere all the embellishments as shown in the photos below, add some gemstones, pearls and one of the Yellow Layered Butterflies.

To finish, mix some salty ocean ink with water and with a paint brush lightly splatter around the layout focusing more on the bottom left and top right of the layout. Remember to cover your photo first! :)

Thanks for stopping by, I hope that you enjoyed this tutorial.
Until next time.
Happy Crafting!
