About Me

My photo
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!

A Dream is a Wish...

Good Morning All and a very Happy Tuesday!

I'm still playing with the new Couture Creations Dies and having a ball!  I love the fact that although they're very intricate, they cut beautifully and release so easily that I haven't even needed to use wax paper with them.

Anyway, on with this weeks project.

Stencil through the "Leafy" mask with Tattered Rose Distress Ink and trim to size.

Lightly distress around the edges with the same ink.

Die cut the Couture Creations Classic Vine from the Vintage Rose Collection in black Foundations card and again from Couture Creations Vintage Rose Garden 6x6 paper pad.

Glue them together off centre so that there is a shadow effect.

Stamp the sentiment from the A5 Dandelion Wishes stamp set onto Coconut White Card with Black Archival Ink.

Cut out with Spellbinders Classic Oval Large Dies.
Glue the vine into position.

Attach a length of Creative Expressions Finishing Touches 6mm Satin Ribbon to the Leafy background.
Matt and layer onto black card.

Glue onto a piece of the Couture Creations patterned paper, then matt onto black card before gluing onto the blank card.

Cut out one of the postcard images from the same papers and glue into position.
Add the oval topper with 3d foam pads.

Tie a bow from the same ribbon and attach with a glue dot.
Add 2 stick pins to finish.

And there we have it!  Simple but elegant.

Everything used to make the card has come from Creative Expressions

I hope you like this weeks card...I've been working on next weeks project and it uses the last die that I was sent to work with.  I'm very excited about how it's coming together!!!!

Well, that's it for this week.  Many thanks for visiting and the comments.

Until next time, have a happy, crafty week!

Good morning Pam, sometimes I forget that you show each layer seperately and the first photo is stunning on its own, and would make great notelets, by the time I got to the final photo it's turned into a gorgeous card. Thank you X Ros
