The art of Prima.....................................

Hi there,

Well I have been absent for a while, my apologies, I have been a bit busy working on a few things, mainly ideas for future workshops and my Design Team projects.

Any way It is my turn to show you all, what I have created for Ali-Craft design Team for April.

I was given the beautiful 12 x 12 kit from Prima called "Stationers Desk".
It is stunning, a palette of Browns, Beige's and Reds, my favourite colours ahhhhhhhhhh. I was also given the mini stamp set and some small paper flowers both of which are from the same collection.

All of these products will be available from Ali-Craft stand at Alexandra Palace this coming weekend.

So here it is

Stationer's Desk- Collection Kits
Available here

It is full of Papers, Note card's and stickers including Alpha's.

So here is my first project to show you. I decided that I would make a card, using the gorgeous 12 x 12 papers and some Dies.

Stationers Desk by Prima.

I cut two large shaped pieces of card to create my card, scored one at 1" from the top edge to create the hinge and glued them together.

Then using the next size die I cut a layer from the Prima Stationers desk and then edged it using DI ink in Antique linen. Randomly stamped over with the Butterfly in Potting Soil Archival Ink, then adhered to the card using Foam pads to give a bit of dimension.

I proceeded to cut some spiral flowers from the card stock and rolled them to create roses and added a diamante in the centre.

Whilst they were drying, I cut a swirl from some scraps of the Prima papers, then cut a few narrow strips, made them into flag shapes. I stamped a verse from Paper Artsy ELB05 and heat embossed it using Wow powders and then distressed the edges.

I checked my rolled Roses were dry and went onto assemble my card, I adhered the die cut swirl  first then added the flags to underneath the stamped panel and attached it to the card once again using foam pads for dimension. Then I added the roses, using wet glue and left to dry.

Well I hope you have enjoyed my first project using the Prima stationers desk collection, please come back next week, where I will have another project to show you.

Happy Crafting
