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!

Golden Wonder!

Good Morning All, back again with another project for Creative Expressions to share with you.  The "Golden Wonder" doesn't refer to crisps, but rather to the fact that I got carried away with the Cosmic Shimmer Bright Gold Embossing Powder!

Anyway, here's the step by step.

Ink up the Ivy Corner Singles Stamp with Perfect Medium and stamp onto Foundations Mocha Cardstock in 2 corners.  Heat emboss with Bright Gold Powder.
Use a pair of scissors to distress the edges.
Dry emboss with the A4 Sea Garden Embossing Folder.
Go over raised areas and the edges with Vintage Golden Green Gilding Wax.
Cut a piece of Dark Roast Coffee Foundations Card to size, distress with scissors then matt and layer.  Glue onto a card blank made with Foundations Milk Card.

Cut 2 Spellbinder Scalloped Circles Large, 1 from Milk card and the other from the Dark Roast Coffee.
Cut a Spellbinder Standard Circle Small from the Mocha Card.

Ink up the Botanical Spray Singles Stamp with Perfect Medium and stamp over the Standard Circle.  Heat emboss with Bright Gold Powder.
Rub some of the Gilding Wax around the edges of the Scalloped Circles them matt and layer.

Stamp a sheet of Milk Card with the Botanical Spray and heat emboss as before.

Cut flowers out using Spellbinder Spiral Blossom 3 and make up into 3d flowers.  Add Gilding Wax to the tips of the flowers.
Die cut leaves from the Foliage Spellbinders set from the same piece of card.  With the die still in place, add some Gilding Wax.
Arrange onto the card and glue into place.

And there's the finished project!

It's really rich and textured and would make a great Golden Wedding Anniversary Card.  I hope you like it.

I had a great time at Ally Pally and hope you enjoyed all my demo's....I seem to have become a fixture in the demo area!

Many thanks to everyone who came to the workshop on April 5th, a good time was had by all!  Looking forward to seeing the next class later this month.  The workshop has now sold out but I have classes planned for June.  The shop has the details of the dates and what we'll be doing so please give them a ring if you're interested.

Well, that's all for today, back again tomorrow with a project for Creative Studios.  Many thanks for visiting and leaving comments.
