Pretty Little Prints - in full

Hope you've all had a good day.  Has the weather been nice where you are?  We actually had sunshine for the second day running ..... let's hope it lasts.

As promised here are the full pictures of my DT cards I sent to Craftwork Cards last week.  They were all made with the gorgeous new Pretty Little Prints Project of the Month kit, available here .  It's a fab little kit and you can get so much out of it.  See what you think.

This card was made using one of the die cut frames and the outside part (the bit that's left over) of the die cut sheet, layered over one of the designer paper, on an 8x8 card.  I've inked the edges slightly to highlight the beautiful embossing.  Added some punched flowers, layered with candi for the centres. 

This one is so simple, just a little bit of matting and layering, some co-ordinating ribbon and a hand-made rose to match.

This card is sooo cute, and it's a way of using up all those little bits of these gorgeous papers, well you can't throw them away now can you!? 
I've just cut squares and arranged to give a quilted look, added some lace to the bottom edge, and used some of the new matching candi and a little bit of glitter glue to finish off.
One of the printed sentiments has been cut down a little and 'tucked' into the top of the quilt.

My favourite one, I think.  I love the gingham and the floral print together.  Again, a very simple card to make, just panels of the designer papers, inked around the edges a little, and mat and layered to give a nice layout. 
To make the rosette you need 2 strips of paper (approx 20cm x 3), edged with a fancy border punch and scored at 1cm intervals.  Concertina fold both strips, and join them together to form a circle.  Place a dot of glue (I find a hot glue gun best for this) onto a small bit of card and flatten the circle over the top to make your rosette shape.  Place one of the circle sentiments over the middle and you're done.  Attach to the front of the card and finish off with some candi.  I've also gone around the edge of each of the panels with some faux stitching.

Next is a tag card.  I love large tags as some of you already know.
Again there's nothing complicated here.  I've used one of the embossed sheets - the butterfly design, inked around the edge to bring out the design.  Made a pocket on the front from one of the papers for the tag to sit in. 
I've decorated my tag (both sides), added some butterflies inked and cut out from the embossed sheet, and some co-ordinating vintage seam binding. 

 Last but not least .......
Another card you could make from your left over pieces of paper.  Don't throw anything away!

I really enjoyed working with these designs.  It's so easy to get great looking results just by using what comes in the kit.  Go on, treat yourself while it's still available. 

Well I think that's it for tonight, it's getting late.  Hope you like my designs.

Thanks for looking.

See you again soon
