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!

Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Creative Expressions Couture Creations Blog Hop.

In order to get here, you must have come from Kim Robertson's Blog.

If you have arrived from Kim Robertson's Blog you are in the right place.


This is the card I thought I'd share with you today using the Butterfly Notes Couture Creations 3 in 1 set.

Apply some Flake and Glitter Glue onto a piece of Cut 'n Dry Foam.  Dab onto the large collage stamp and stamp onto a piece of Foundations Black Cardstock.
Apply Summer Meadows Gilding Flakes over the top.
Cover with Creative Expressions Double Sided Adhesive Sheet.  Remove the backing and apply Cosmic Shimmer Diamond Sprinkles Glitter Jewels.


Onto a piece of Coconut White Cardstock, randomly stamp the Dandelion and Butterfly with Perfect Medium Ink.  Heat emboss with Cosmic Shimmer Bright Gold Embossing Powder.


Cut a strip of Coconut White Cardstock measuring 1cm wide, stamp the Music Notes with Perfect Medium Ink and heat emboss as before.
Go around the edge of the larger white card with Perfect Medium Ink and heat emboss with the CS Bright Gold Embossing Powder.

Matt and layer.  To finish, add a bow made from the Crushed Satin Ribbon and apply a Black Dazzler to the centre.

I really hope you like it and would like to thank Sue Wilson for passing on this technique.

Thank you for visiting my blog, please leave a comment to be in with a chance of winning a prize!
