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!

Snow!

A Very Happy Tuesday to you all,  I hope you've had a great week.

I don't want the title of this post to depress you but this card is all about snow!  So to cheer you up and stop you shivering at the thought of it, I'll get on with the project!

Die cut "Snow" using the Festive Collection Sue Wilson Dies from a piece of Coconut White Card about a third of the way down.  Save the piece of card you've cut it from. 

 Place a piece of Double Sided Adhesive onto a 2nd smaller piece of card to fit where the die has been cut from.
Sprinkle a mix of Silver Chrome and Lilac Cosmic Shimmer Polished Silk Glitters over the adhesive.

Ink up the Striped Poinsettia Stamp with Flake and Glitter Glue and randomly stamp over the cut out piece of card.  Apply the same glitters as before.

Dry emboss with the M-Bossabilities Dainty Dots Folder.

Glue the word "Snow" onto the glittered backing with Cosmic Shimmer Dries Clear Glue.

Attach the top layer with 3d foam pads.

Matt and layer onto Foundations Heather Card.  Attach a length of Mauve Seam Binding.

Apply Flake and Glitter Glue to the largest of the Poinsettia Stamps.  Stamp onto Coconut White Card twice.  Apply the glitters as before.  Cut out with the Festive Collection Dies.
Shape the petals, glue the flower together and add a small Dazzler from the Assorted Circles Pack to the centre.

Tie several strips of the Seam Binding onto the strip that is on the card.  Glue the large Poinsettia into place.  Trim the seam binding to the right length.

And there's the finished card!  I hope you like it.  All of the products used are from Creative Expressions.

Just a couple of tips to finish with.
The "Snow" Die will need a few passes through the machine to cut. 

When applying the glitter, do it 1 colour at a time so that you can collect the excess.  If the glitters do get mixed up, collect the excess in a separate pot and you've got some "ready mix" for another project.

Well, that's all for today.  My next workshops at Martells are on 11th and 25th October and the Crafty Sunday at my home is on October12th.  Hope to see some of you there.

Many thanks for visiting and have a great week.
