Creative Expressions Couture Creations Blog Hop

Welcome to the Creative Expressions Couture Creations Blog Hop.

If you hopped here from lovely Kerry Hickton’s blog then you are on the right track. If not then hop on over to the Creative Expressions Blog to get started. There will be lots of inspiration and prizes on the way so don’t forget to comment on all the blogs in the hop.

As some of you might already know Creative Expressions have recently taken on some new DT members so we are celebrating the new DT but not only that, if you watched Julia Watts Create and Craft shows over the weekend then you would have seen the Couture Creations 3-in-1 Dreamboat Collection. So our blog hop this week is also showcasing the Couture Creations 3-in-1 Dreamboat collection.

And here is my make using the Couture Creations 3-in-1 Dreamboat Butterfly Notes set:

I’ve used a combination of masking and stamping techniques to get the sweep of stamping and colour on the Foundations card.

I’ve used the Butterfly stamp and dies from the set to layer the butterfly.

Ok so I mentioned some prizes didn’t I? What? You are telling me you didn’t read the bit at the top? D’oh! Well there are some prizes on the hop…

Prizes: 

There are 10 prize bundles plus a Star prize. Each of the bundles is worth over £10 and contains a selection of Glitters, Glue, Embossing Powders and a Singles Stamp from Creative Expressions. 

The star prize is worth £30 and will be the same as the other prize bundles, PLUS one of the 3-in-1 Dreamboat Collection Sets! 

The prize up for grab on my blog is:

Your Carriage Awaits Pre Cut Stamp 

Glitter 

Cosmic Shimmer Dries Clear Glue (a must have!)

Cosmic Shimmer Silver Shine Details Embossing Powder 

To be in with a chance of winning a prize leave a comment on each blog, the winners will be announced on the Creative Expressions News blog once the Hop has ended on Friday, 22nd November 2013 at 5pm. 

Next on the hoppity hop is the fabulous Trace Metcalfe.

Enjoy and good luck!

Kim
