Each month I choose a Stampin' Up! product as my Feature Product. For the month of July I am featuring the Pretties Kit! The Pretties Kit shown on page 188 of the Spring Summer collection is also on special this month when purchased through me. My Technique Tuesday feature during the month of July will feature ideas for the Pretties Kit. As well, throughout the month of July, you can expect to see lots of projects on my blog featuring the Pretties Kit, and I will be demonstrating with them during all my July workshops.
Here is the special for July:

Technique Tuesday; Strung Pearls
Jumbo eyelet (1)
Cord (I'm using the old retired SU silver cord)
and not pictured:
I started by adhering a small piece of Riding Hood Red to the Whisper White.
The allows the pearls to stand out better and also gives it support since Whisper White is the lightest cardstock.
Then I punched a hole near the top with the Crop-o-dile.
Next, you will set the eyelet through both layers.
Now you are ready to string the pearls.
Start by cutting about 5" of cord (longer if your card is vertically oriented. I did 2 strings...you can do as many as you like.
Tie a knot in the bottom of your string to prevent the pearls from sliding off.
String your pearls in whatever fashion you like.
Both strings can be different or they can be the same.
Thread the cord through the eyelet.
Secure to the back of the cardstock with scotch tape.
Here is the finished project. I had envisioned this card before I had the stamp set, and then wouldn't you know it...when my order finally shipped the stamp set was on backorder! It was worth the wait though, the card came together really quickly...even with staging and photographing the tutorial!
My "Fresh Cuts" set arrived the same day as my new preview order, so I couldn't resist putting them together. I worked with Riding Hood Red. The Pretties flower was coloured using the reinker and an old blender pen. (See the tutorial here). I layered a white flower then a Riding Hood Red button to finish. The entire Whisper White layer is attached to the Riding Hood Red base with dimensionals....and that's about it!
Wishing you a wonderful day! See you soon!
