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!

Butterfly Dreams

Good Morning All and a very Happy Tuesday!

I'm back again with another project using the stamps designed for Creative Expressions by Johnathon Lockwood.  This time I've used the "Elements stamps- Butterfly Dreams"

So, let's get started....

Apply Honeycomb, Sunshine Yellow and Sunset Orange Alcohol Inks to a piece of gloss card.

Ink up the "Butterfly Dreams" Striplet Stamp with Black Archival Ink and  stamp onto the gloss card.

Cut out the panels and edge with the Archival Ink.

Emboss a piece of Coconut White Card with the A4 Leafy Montage Folder.
Lightly apply Wild Honey and Rusty Hinge Distress Inks to highlight the raised areas.
Matt and layer onto Black Foundations Card.

Matt and layer the panels and glue onto the background.

Ink up the Oval stamp from the A5 set with the sentiment in place.

Heat emboss with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder.
Paint the butterflies with the same Distress Inks as before.

Cover with Double Sided Adhesive, cut out the oval, remove the backing paper, then add Micro Beads.

Die cut a matt using the Californian Collection-Napa Valley Dies.
Glue the oval into place.
Attach to the card with 3d foam pads.

Cut out some flowers using the Delicate Daisies Complete Petals in Black card, then using white card, die cut the Delicate Daisies-Open Petals.
Glue them together and stick them into position on the card.

Add small Black Dazzlers to the flower centres.

And there's the finished card!

I do apologise about the glare in the photos....I must have chosen the sunniest day of the year so far to make this one!

Well, that's all for this week...many thanks for stopping by and leaving comments, they are much appreciated.

I should be in Turkey while you're reading this....not long before we get home!

Until next time....have a happy, crafty week!

Hi Pam this is a gorgeous card. You know so many fab techniques. Enjoy the rest of your cruise I am enjoying the updates on Facebook. I used to really enjoy the sea days and before I went I thought they would be boring. Hugs Jackie
