Sea Gull Box cards.

Hi Lovelies,

This is the second of the boxed cards that have been taught by Linda recently.

This box featured the Couture Creations Sea Breeze papers
and the "Seagulls over the Ocean" die.

This is just truly amazing card. 

The waves are embossed with Stampendeous Sparkle Puff embossing powder.

The seagulls are all hand painted using Tim Holtz Distress Markers. 

There are even some on the back of the card.

I was really lucky that the one that we displayed in store is for me :-)

Sea Breeze Box Card with Linda

Hi Lovelies,

Our wonderfully talented team member Linda has
recently been playing with boxed cards.

She designed two amazing box cards using the Couture Creations Sea Breeze collection.

The first of these cards features sea horses, shells and a magnificent array of colourful coral.

 The seahorses are all embossed using the Couture Creations Pastel Blue
 with Holographic Silver Glitter embossing powder.

The shells and coral are embossed with Stampendeous Golden Sands Embossing Powder

She even made a matching gift card so that you 
have somewhere to write your message for the lucky recipient.

Class Fun - Sampler Canvas

Hi lovelies,

Recently a group of ladies joined with Helen
to make this beautiful Mixed Media sampler.

 They began with a blank canvas and some chipboard bits,

 Added gesso, texture paste and paint.

then they took an assortment of flowers, metals, lace and ribbons

 The next step was to add a bit of colour with
Lindy Stamp Gang Magicals.

As the day went on, some remained 
more enthusiastic than others. 

and you always get that one
who wants a different colour.

All in all, the ladies had a wonderful day
creating their own masterpiece.

10 Cards with Liz

Hi lovelies,

Each month I have a 10 card class and in July I used the 
fabulous Sea Breeze range from Couture Creations.

I am an avid fan of all things sea and beach
related and I just loved playing with this range,

The range features papers, stamps, 
embossing folders, trinkets and embellishments.


Not all the ladies enjoyed
piecing the 2 sea horse die cuts,
but I think it looked great when done.

The "Framing the Breeze" embossing folder
 was my favourite of the collection.


While I try and keep the cards fairly simple,
we are always challenged to get the cards completed in class.

Ladies do always leave with everything cut, prepped and 
ready for assembly.
