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!

Something Wonderful!

Good Morning All and a very Happy Tuesday!

It's a new month which means it's time to showcase some of the new stamps from Creative Expressions.

For this weeks blog post I've used the Filigree Frame Singles Stamp.  So, let's get started!

Stencil through random areas of the "Fleur-de-Lis" Mask with Wild Honey Distress Ink onto Coconut White Card.  Stamp small areas of the "Scented Borders" stamp with Rusty Hinge Distress Ink over the top. 
Dry emboss using the Creative Expressions A4 Interlocking Circles Folder.
Distress around the edges with Rusty Hinge.

Ink up the Filigree Frame stamp with Black Archival Ink and stamp onto Coconut White Card.  Heat emboss with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Powder.
Stamp the centre section again and heat emboss as before.
Trim to size.  Paint around the edges of the smaller piece with the same colour Distress Inks as used on the background.
Matt and layer onto Black Foundations Card.

Using the Petite Vinery Dies, cut two leaves from black card.
Colour a piece of Coconut White Card with the Rusty Hinge and Wild Honey Distress Inks.  Die cut some Butterflies from the Magical Butterflies Dies.

Glue all of the layers together and add the top layer with 3d foam pads.

Glue the Vinery Leaves and Butterflies into position and add 3mm black pearls to the bodies of the butterflies to finish.

And there's the finished card!

The background technique is one that the lovely Julia Watts uses a lot and I'm a big fan of it (and her!).

I hope you like it.  All of the products are available from Creative Expressions and it's a nice easy card to make.

So until next time, have a great week and many thanks for stopping by.
