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.

Blog Candy and Fairies!

As promised, the blog candy has arrived.
I thought it should be a bit special to "kick things off" and celebrate the fact that I'm finally blogging again!
To win is simples!!
First, become a follower of the blog.
Next, leave a comment.
And finally, put a link to your blog if you have one...if not, don't worry.
The more posts that you comment on, the more entries you get into the draw.
The draw will take place when I get to 300 followers.
Good luck everyone, they're a fantastic set of stamps and the Tim Holtz mini masks are fab.
I thought I'd put a different sort of card on here today...very different to my usual grungy, distressed look!
This is one that I taught at a workshop last year.
The stamp is from Creative Expressions.  I heat embossed the image then painted her with Distress Inks mixed with Mica Powders.  The wings were stamped twice onto fusible film, cut out and glued on with CS dries clear glue.
I cut the image out using a Spellbinder die.
The background was made by putting a piece of card into a Creative Expressions Embossing Folder, running it through the Grand Calibur, then inking with Spun Sugar Distress Ink.
It's a nice easy card to make and I usually forget about using fusible film but it does make beautiful wings for fairies, butterflies and dragonflies as well as a stained glass effect for windows.
A Eureka moment!!!
I must get down to the studio straight away...I have some of the Spellbinder D Lite window dies!!
Don't forget to watch Hels fab shows on C&C over the next few days...the melt pot techniques are amazing.
Have a terrific day whatever you're up to and many thanks for visiting.
