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 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!

More Poinsettias!

Good Morning All and a very Happy Thursday!

Back again with the last of the Christmas makes for this month and I've gone back to probably my favourite dies....the Poinsettias.

Anyway, let's get started!

Emboss a piece of Foundations Vintage Gold Card and a piece of Coconut White Card with the A4 Swirling Holly Folder.
Use the Portuguese Collection-Border, Corner and Tag set to cut diagonally across the gold card.  Glue both pieces onto the white card.

Matt and layer onto Vintage Gold Card.
Stick some Double Sided Adhesive onto a piece of Coconut White card and die cut the Festive Collection-Classic Poinsettia.
Remove the backing then apply Cosmic Shimmer Fire Red Polished Silk Glitter.
Shape the petals, glue together in layers then glue onto the card.

Add 8mm black pearls to the flower centres.
Place another piece of Double sided adhesive onto Coconut White Card.
Die cut 2 tags from the same set of Portuguese dies.
Cut them in half then apply the same glitter as before.
Stamp the sentiment with Black Archival Ink and heat emboss with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Powder.
Cut out using the Spellbinders Classic Circles Small Dies.
Glue the 4 pieces of glittered card around the edge of the circle.
Attach to the card with 3d foam pads.

And there's the finished card...quick and elegant!

I always forget that dies like the tags can be cut up to form different shapes but it does give you so many options for using them.
All of the products I've used are from Creative Expressions.

Well, that's it for this week.  Many thanks for stopping by and leaving comments, they are much appreciated.  Don't forget to tell me which is your favourite and it could be winging its way to you!

Until next time, have a happy, crafty week!
