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!

Eat Dessert First!!!

Good Morning All and a very Happy Tuesday!

I've made a wall hanging for today's DT piece with a sentiment that I agree with totally!  I'm planning on hanging it in my kitchen where I shall do my best to follow the advice!

Anyway, let's get started....

Paint a small wooden plaque with Cosmic Shimmer Midnight Matt Chalk Paint.

Ink up the "Life is Short" Singles stamp with Perfect Medium.  Stamp onto the plaque and heat emboss with Cosmic Shimmer Bright Gold Metallic Powder.

Apply Perfect Medium Ink around the edges using a piece of Cut 'n Dry Foam.  Heat emboss with the same powder as before.

Ink up the Cake and Spoon stamps from the A5 Vintage Cooking set with Perfect Medium and stamp several times onto Black Foundations Card.  Heat emboss with the Bright Gold Powder and cut out.
Attach to the wall hanging with 3d foam pads.

Add some Golden Light Metallic Gilding Wax to the outer edge of the plaque.

Ink up the sentiment from the A5 Vintage Cooking Set with Perfect Medium and stamp onto Black Foundations Card.
Cut to size and glue onto a piece of Grungeboard.
Apply Perfect Medium Ink around the edges as before and heat emboss with Bright Gold Powder.

Attach to the plaque with Black Seam Binding.
Make a loop of Black Seam Binding and attach to the top of the plaque with Cosmic Shimmer Dries Clear Glue as a hanger.

And that's the finished project!  Hope you like it.

I'm going to be having a couple of weeks off blogging over Christmas but I'll be back in the New Year with new stamps and ideas.  Please pop back on January 6th to see what I've made!

In the meantime, have a Very Happy Christmas and a fab New Year.  see you all soon..................
