Hi, I'm Pam and thank you for visiting my blog. I have been making cards for over 10 years and am an independent demonstrator for Creative Expressions. I am lucky enough to teach on cruise ships and also get the chance to demo at The Big Stamping and Scrapbooking Show at Alexander Palace. I run workshops for a local craft shop and if anyone would like details of the them please e-mail me at stephen.smith870@ntlworld.com I love to scrapbook but my all time favourite thing is to get messy with ink!

While it's Cold!

Thought I'd post a Christmas card I've designed for the September workshop at Martells!  I know, it's Easter, but while the weather is so chilly it almost seams right for an Easter card this year!
I've used Studio 490 stamps for the message and red stamped background.
In the set is the most gorgeous swirl which I stamped 4 times in Crimson Archival ink.
Before that, I used the Micro Dot mask to emboss the white card in the Grand Calibur and inked the edge with Peeled Paint Distress Ink.
The holly leaves are also in the same set of stamps but much bigger!  I thought I'd get out my Shrink Plastic for these...it's been on the shelf for ages.  After stamping, I coloured them with Promarkers, then heat shrank them.  Cosmic Shimmer Dries Clear Glue works a treat for gluing them into place.
The matt for the message was cut with Spellbinder dies.
I stamped the message onto the white card before cutting it and covered it with double sided adhesive.  After it had been cut, I covered it with Micro Beads.  You can just about see the sparkle.
I may have got a new camera but the photography hasn't improved!
Well, that's it for today,  Hope you're all having a good Easter Break and relaxing.
Should be back tomorrow but we're planning on going to a Boot Fair...I want to buy some bits to "alter!"
Happy Easter to all.
