I've done a batch of cards, all made from the October 2006 Hot Off The Press Personal Shopper Kit. The only thing I used for the cards that wasn't from the kit was a rubber stamp. I covered the front of an A6 card with pale green paper with a combed effect on it . I folded down the top right hand corner of the card and covered it with daisy paper and inked the edge. I put a triangle of square patterned paper on the top right inside corner and also on the opposite left bottom corner. I edged the bottom corner with a strip of plain green paper. I cut two mini tags from the embellishment sheet, inked the edges and fixed them on with pale green brads. the one was pre printed and I added 'for you' to the other. I cut a large daisy from the daisy paper. I fixed it with a brad to the folded down corner to hold it in place. I also used a tiny flower punch to make a flower for the bottom tag.
For the next card I covered the top of an A6 card with the pale green combed paper and the bottom with daisy paper. I attached a piece of green ribbon across the centre of the card and put three brads on the left hand side. The brads puckered the ribbon slightly but I quite liked the effect and didn't bother to change it! I cut the bottom piece of paper so a large daisy was showing and used one of the gorgeous Heidi Swapp buttons as the flower centre. There is a whole pack of these in the October Kit. I cut a strip of pumpkin orange paper and matted a strip of daisy paper onto it. I stamped a thank you greeting onto some plain green card and layered that on top of the daisy paper. I fixed it at an angle with foam pads. To finished it off I added a silver dragonfly brad on the top corner.
The last card is my favourite. I've used darker colours for this but I really like it! I covered a 5 x5 card with green striped paper at the top and plain green paper at the bottom. In the kit there are 12 x 12 Halloween papers, one of which is striped. I cut an orange stripe out of the sheet and stuck it on the front of the card. I cut the greeting from the card making section of the kit and using what was left from the orange strip, I made a faux ribbon to go behind the greeting. I used two different sized flower punches to make the flower. I punched two 3 inch flowers from orange and yellow paper and two 2 inch flowers, one from the striped paper and one from the yellow. I curled the petals in different directions to give the flower dimension and put a spotted button in the centre. I wasn't sure the colours would work but I think they do and I'm very pleased with this card!
Finally, I made an ATC. I used plain green card and matted a piece of the green leaf pattern paper onto it and inked the edges. I stuck a piece of the twill printed with the words 'falling leaves' down the left hand side and put a white metal embellishment out of the kit, embossed with the word 'fall' in the centre. I finished it off with two leaf brads. This ATC its quite plain but I think it works.
