About Me

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!

Just a Note!

Good Morning All, it's Tuesday so it's Creative Expressions Blog Day!  Hope you all had a great week.

The Design Team were sent some Masks to play with this month and it's been terrific fun trying to come up with new ways of "playing" with them!

This week I've gone for Distress Inks.  Anyway, enough chat, let's get on with it!

Place the mask over a piece of Coconut White Card.  Ink through the flower head parts of the mask with Cut 'n Dry Foam using Squeezed Lemonade, Barn Door and Rusty Hinge Distress Inks.  Move the mask around to put the flowers where you want them.  Add in some of the leaves.
Distress the edges with Rusty Hinge.

Matt and layer onto white and orange card.

Using orange card, cut out Spellbinders D-Lites Medallion 2.
Stamp "Just a Note" with Black Archival ink onto Coconut White Card and heat emboss with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Powder.
Use a Spellbinders die to cut out.  Leave the die in place and distress with Rusty Hinge Ink.
Attach to the Medallion with 3d foam pads.

Attach to the background card with pads.

Using Coconut White card, die cut flowers from the Spellbinders Finishing Touches Faux Quilled Flowers and leaves from the Faux Quilled Leaves sets.  Cut the leaves to make smaller pieces.  Glue to the card with Cosmic Shimmer Dries Clear Glue.
Add a few of the flowers with 3d foam pads.
Add some Creative Expressions 8mm faux pearls to the flower centres to finish.

And there's the finished project!

It's the same mask that I used last week but looks completely different.

I hope you've enjoyed this week's project.  I'll be back tomorrow with another project for the Creative Studios team.

Many thanks for visiting and until next time, have a happy, crafty time!
