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!

New Month.....New Goodies!

Good Morning All and a very Happy Thursday and pinch, punch, the 1st of the month!

As it's a new month, I've been sent new goodies to play with so without further ado...let's get started!!!

Cut 2 different sized squares of Craft Consortium Bloom Beautiful 12x12 paper.
Cut 2 squares of Coconut White Card using the Noble-Double Pierced Squares Dies.
Stamp the sentiment from Delightful Sentiments stamp set onto the smaller square of white card with Black Archival Ink.  Heat emboss with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Powder.
Matt and layer all of the components.

Cut out the flowers with the 

Finishing Touches-Camellia Complete Petals Die Set using the same papers as before.
Shape and make up into 3d flowers.  Glue into position on the card.

Add 5 & 8mm white self adhesive pearls to the centres of the flowers.

Die cut one more flower (several layers) and some leaves to decorate the corners.  Glue into position.

And there's the finished card!

As always, everything I've used is from Creative Expressions.
I really can't praise the new 12x12 papers enough.  A lot of them have a sheen and some are glittered.  It's an outstanding collection and I'm just glad there are 4 sheets of each design otherwise I'd have serious trouble cutting them up!

I do love the Noble dies as well.  I've always had difficulty piercing around the edges but these have really solved the problem.

Well, that's it for this week.  I'll be showing you more of these beautiful papers as the month goes on.

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

Until next time, have a happy, crafty week!

Hi Pam this is a stunning card I love the papers you have used. I really want the pierced squares dies. Piercing round the edge takes so long and it often goes wrong. Have a great week. Hugs Jackie
