Creative Wednesday...Working Together
I am happy to say that I survived my first three day trade show though I was in bed by 10pm last night (but back up at six as usual!) Today's post is late so that Sarah (the marketing Manager at Creative Expressions) and I can post at the same time as we worked together on this card!
At the show we both realised that in the melee of prepping we had missed that I hadn't submitted a project for the DT this week. We resolved to make one at the show however it was so busy that this card took us jointly three days! We decided on a mothers day card and thought wouldn't it be fun to use some of the new products that we were launching. The pictures are not my usual standard as we took these pic's on my phone at the end of the show on the stand!
The sentiment is made using 2 of the new release dies from Sue Wilson for Creative expressions range stamped with Phil Martin's Mother sentiment again from a new set of his (are you getting fed up with me saying new yet?lol)
The flowers were made by Sarah using the cornflower die in 2 sizes with Colour Cloud smoothie'd over the edges and a pearl dazzler in the centre. Sarah came up the idea of using the gilding wax (all the cosmic shimmer products used were from the new Colours released by Phil but I will let him announce them!) over the centre of the pearl embellishments. surrounding this Sarah added dots of the matching twinkles and we left the flowers hidden on one of the shelves on the stand to dry, stopping people picking them up was amusing!
Finally I added a layers of Heart lattice embossing folder (we couldn't manage to sneak one of the new folders form the stand to use) inked with the colour cloud and a few layers of coconut and lilac foundation card. The flowers were added over a knotted piece of crochet ribbon with some pearls swirls tide in and finished.
I hope you have enjoyed this trip around some of the new products which I am hoping to get to work with again as they are fully released and this joint project, a real Design Team piece!
No Ingredient list as not sure what we are allowed to say as yet! however click here to see what Sarah has said about her experience and get a glimpse of some of the new products on the Creative Expressions website!
