Clipart Fairy Big Bloom and Playful Panels

Today I have two cards to show you that I have made using a couple of the Clipart Fairy's latest Kits. The same kits were used for some of the workshop cards last weekend, but I always like to see what else I can do with them.

The Big Blooms Button It kit is full of lovely vibrant colours, has 13 papers, the flower in three different colour ways, oval frames, mat and layer me base, wording and the girl graphic (which I haven't used this time) in both a frilled and unfrilled frame, as a super graphic.

I have mat and layered papers from the kit, used the checked frame as a diamond instead of square, and used a Die-Namics double scallop border die for embellishment.
I shaped and glittered the flowers and layered them up.
The flower centre is made up of a 20mm rhinestone spacer and 14mm acrylic rhinestone from the Hobby House, and I used the gorgeous Crystal AB stick on gems from MeiFlower to add lots of sparkle. I love these iridescent crystals as they pick up the colours surrounding them. 


My second card uses parts of  the Playful Panels Blue interactive kit, the RTP Playful Panels Blue kit and also a paper from the Playful Panels Classic Kit

I enlarged one of the panels to A4 size, printed, cut and folded in half to make my card base, I also printed the  same patterned paper onto the reverse of the card before cutting.
I printed a paper from the blue and one from the classic kit onto pearl paper and used a CREAlies no5 die to make my flowers.
Ribbon and pearls are from MeiFlower.

Off to do some Christmas present wrapping now, not my favourite job in the world so tends to get left until it has to be done, but as some of them need delivering later I have to get stuck in.
