Clipart Fairy February workshop

Yesterday I went to this month's Clipart Fairy Workshop where we made a selection of cards with some of her new products. In our packs we also had a couple of extra bits which were printed by mistake, I used them once I got home to make a couple of extra cards.

The Workshop Cards.
Check out the New Products section in both stores for the interactive and RTP versions of these kits.

 This was a large wallet card, which would make a perfect gift set, as inside it has two pockets that you could fill with a selection of cards and envelopes. We made a matching card as an example.
The top frill sticks out from the card and the roses are decoupaged and glittered.


A pretty easel card, with roses and butterflies, the roses and top wings of the butterflies
are layered up for extra dimension.


This is a large 20cm square ready made scalloped edge card base decorated with papers and images from the Mannequin kit. The frame was made with a GoKreate die,
flowers from WOC and the scissors are from MeiFlower.

This card uses pretty peach rose paper and a roses and butterflies graphic, which is decoupaged. The shaper frames are part of the kit. There is also an insert included in the kit, which for our card was printed on vellum.

An ideal man's card with a fun sentiment that continues onto the card insert.

This is a 5" x 7" card, with decoupaged roses. I added a peel-off sentiment to the middle of the tag, (in the kits you could add your wording using the computer) and some pearls dotted around the roses.
Pearls - Meiflower
In our packs we had a couple of extra pieces including this oval and circle with decoupage from the Antique Roses Kick Frill Interactive Kit. 
When I got home I decided to use them up, so here are the cards I made with them.
Papers used are all from the kit.
I used the oval to make an A6 Mother's Day card adding a bow, a charm, pearls and peel-off wording

I cut the circle with roses out, and used it as a template to cut a second circle from blank card. I scored the blank circle at approximately 2cms in from the left hand edge and attached it the the rose circle, then trimmed a small straight edge across the bottom of the card to make it stand. I decoupaged and glittered the roses, and added a purple bow, and pearls to decorate. The tag is from the Mannequin interactive kit, I re-sized it and added my own wording.
The Ribbons, Pearls and charm used on these two cards are from MeiFlower.

It was as always, a very busy but enjoyable day and I would like to say a big Hi! to everyone who was there, especially the mad lot that I share a table with, Oh, and an extra special thank you to Anita who supplied us with a big box of Thornton's chocs to munchie on while we were working.
