Couture Creations 2017/18 Design Team Audition

This is my offering for my the Design team for Ultimate Crafts and Couture Creations.

Kaisercraft’s Pawfect Collection

This card I made for a class at Nicky P Papercrafts this year in May.



Use a stencil that features a stone pattern,tape to the top of some brick coloured card stock.  Mix some copper coloured pigment powder to embossing paste, then spread over the stencil and cardstock to make a textured background.  Once done, lift the stencil to reveal the new stones.




Use the Ultimate Crafts Ornate Window Die, to make the window, cut 2 dies cuts.  One from a black coer’dinations card stock, it is black colour on the outside and with another colour under, and then distressed with a sandpaper, to show a blue/grey core.  The other is a dark brown wood finish, from the backgrounds of the Pawfect collection.  Stick a piece of acetate in between the 2 die cuts to act as a ‘glass’ look for the window then and then stick it into place.  Choose a couple of die cut pieces to decorate the base, and a strip saying for the top.



Another background from the Pawfect collection on the inside with another embellishment.


A piece of black coer’dination card stock is embossed with the Pawfect embossing folder, then sanded back to reveal the different coloured core, and also to highlight the paw feature.  This dog was fussy cut from the Pawfect collection.  The edges and the glasses were coloured Ground Espresso Distress Ink.  Add a couple more embellishments.


This page was has a feature similar to the front of the card, but the stenciled background has been stamped with the pawprints, and used as a feature under the fussy cut Dalmatian, which is also edged with Ground Espresso Distress ink. Yes he is wearing glasses, these are a brad that I have heat embossed with gold embossing powder, to look cool on the dog, then stuck into place.  Another saying in place also.

A couple more backgrounds and embellishments to finish the card.  Enjoy!



Kaisercrafts Mint Wishes Collection


The pine tree is a background from the collection, using the snowflake dot stencil, tape it over the top of the cardstock and cover with embossing paste.  Mix the embossing paste with white pigment powder, and lots of white glitter.  Peel back the stencil to reveal the background.  Place the sentiment and baubles in different places. Back of card done.


Another beautiful background from the Mint Wishes collection, die cut the Christmas tree out of the centre of the card.  On a Piece of Glitter Foil, use the Go Press Foil Machine to foil the Hot Foil Stamp – ‘We wish you a merry Christmas’.   Foil with the Christmas Green.  Peel backing from the glitter foil, and stick onto a piece of acetate.  Place the background over the foiled image.  Add a light touch of glue around the edge of the cut tree, brush on microfine white glitter. The die cuts are also foiled with the Go Press Foil Machine using the Kaisercrafts dies, then die cut to shape.  Stick in place using glue.


Fussy cut pieces arranged and highlighted with glitter.



Foiled white card stock with this die then using the positive and negative foils to colour 2 of each making a total of four die cuts.  Fold all of them in half using a bone folder to give a good line to fold and fold with the foiled image on the inside.   Glue 2  outsides together, using green white green white as a guide.  Cut an arm’s length piece of nylon thread and glue to the centre of the 2 die cuts, now glue and stick the last 2 die cuts together, with the thread in the centre.  You should have a small sphere that can then be tied to the centre of the circle that has been die cut from the card and cover with 2 back grounds and glitter edges.
