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!

Floribunda.....Take 2

Good Morning All and a very Happy Thursday!

Well, here I am again, home safe and well after a fantastic festival and excited to show you another project made using the fab Floribunda Stamp.  So, let's get started!

Using one of the dies from the Portuguese Collection-Lisbon set, cut 3 evenly spaced shapes from a piece of Foundations Sky Blue Card.
Glue onto the blank card.

Dry emboss a piece of Coconut White card with the A4 Leafy Montage Folder.  Attach a length of pale blue ribbon before gluing onto the blue card.

Ink up the Floribunda stamp with Perfect Medium and stamp onto a piece of the Sky Blue card.  Heat emboss with Cosmic Shimmer True White Powder.
Stamp "Thinking of You" from the Butterfly Dreams Stamp set on the same piece of card. and heat emboss as before.
Cut out with the Lisbon Dies.
Attach to the card with 3d pads.

Tie a triple bow with some of the pale blue ribbon and attach with a glue dot.
Stamp a small butterfly from the Butterfly Dreams set into the gaps using Black Archival Ink.  Paint with Tumbled Glass Distress Ink.
Die cut 3 butterflies using the Spellbinders Papillon 2 set from the Sky Blue Card.  Shape the wings and glue into place.  Add 3mm pearls to the butterflies bodies.

And to finish, just make up a small Foldover Flower using the Finishing Touches Die and some White Felt.  Glue into position and you're done!

I hope that all made sense!

Don't forget, if you'd like to go into a draw for the wall hanging I made last week, just leave a comment on here.  I'll draw a name on July 12th.

As always, everything used on this card is from Creative Expressions.  Next Thursday I'll be showing you a Christmas make! I know, it's months away....surprising how quickly it comes around when you've got a lot of cards to make though!

Anyway, that's it for today.  Many thanks for stopping by and leaving comments.  Until next time, have a happy, crafty week!

Good morning Pam, what a pretty blue card today, many shades all of which compliment each other. Hoping to win the hanging you are offering. X Ros

Hi Pam this is a gorgeous card I love the shades of blue and the stamp is divine. I was so lucky on Saturday John Lockwood gave me one of his beautiful cards as I helped him a little with a workshop that he was doing locally to me. Have a great week and thank you for liking my Facebook posts. Hugs Jackie
