I love the new Bellissima collection from Docrafts.  The colours are beautiful and being a clean and simple kinda girl means I adore using this collection with a mainly white background!  I think it sets the colours off beautifully.

Here are a couple of my makes using this range which recently featured on Create & Craft.  I have had lots of feedback and know that so many of you bought and loved this range.

This is a truly simple make but so very effective.  It is an A6 card bank with an embossed panel adhered using 3D foam pads.  The decoupage has been added and some adhesive stones placed around the image.

Again a very straight forward card and a great way to use up the odd strips of paper.  I have used a 5×7″ card blank and adhered 1″ strips of paper that have been inked at the edges.  The decoupage image has been added to the right hand corner.

IMG_9973Finally I love this hot air balloon that is featured in the Ultimate Decoupage and Die Cut Pack. The image has been added to a white panel slightly smaller than the card blank and adhered using 3D foam pads.  3 strips of peanuts have been added and a resin flower with sentiment to the top corner.

I hope this shows how easy it is to make beautiful cards from this kit. They are quick, simple and straight forward.  The trick is to make sure the card balances, it is even looking and not over embellished.  Let the colours and the images speak for themselves by using a clean, crisp, white base.

I will be back later in the week to share some other makes using this kit, this time using it to create extra detailed cards with a bit of distressing.

Have a great day.
