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!

Elegant Plums!

Good Morning All and a very Happy Thursday!

Back again using the Portuguese Collection-Lisbon Dies for this card.

I thought I'd try and do something a little different this week so let's get started!

Using the patterned die from the set, cut 3 times in a row on a piece of Foundations Rich Plum Card.

Emboss a piece of Foundations Lilac card using the A4 Sea Garden Folder.
Highlight the raised areas with Cosmic Shimmer Vintage Plum Gilding Wax.
Matt and layer onto a piece of the Rich Plum Card.  Attach onto the blank C5 card.

Glue the cutout panel into position.

Die cut 2 more shapes from the Lisbon Collection.  The frame from Rich Plum using a frame and inner shape and the other from the lilac card.

Stamp the sentiment from the A5 Dandelion Wishes set with Black Archival Ink onto the lilac card.  Heat emboss with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Powder.
Stamp around the edges with a small stamp from the Cherry Blossoms Elements Stamp Set by John Lockwood.
Matt and layer using 3d foam pads.

Attach to the card with 3d pads.

Tie a double bow using Creative Expressions Satin Crush Ribbon.
Attach to the card with dry glue dots.
Add a large Lilac Dazzler to the centre to finish.

and there's the finished card.  Very different to last weeks but still using the same die set.

Well, I'd better get off here now....packs to prep for the full day workshops at Martells!

Many thanks for stopping by and leaving comments, they do mean a lot to me.

Until next Thursday, have a happy, crafty week!

Hi Pam so sorry that I am a creature of habit, but if I miss a day blog reading it's on a Thursday. I like the dies and the all the de tale of the card but I am not a dark card fan, unless it's very elegant and glittery. I will do better next week. X Ros.
