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!

No Stamping Required!

Good Morning All and a very Happy Thursday!

Well, it's the end of another month so it's the final project of the month and as that's the case, I couldn't help myself and had to showcase the gorgeous Bloom Beautiful papers from Craft Consortium again.

I've titled this post No Stamping Required because that's exactly what this card is about...apart from being a really sweet New Home card.  So let's get started.....

Cut a strip of Foundations Sky Blue card.  Place the inner section of the Striplet-Eternal Rings Die over and cut.  Remove the die, line it up and cut again to extend the length of the design.  Cut to the end of the strip.

Matt and layer a piece of Bloom Beautiful paper onto some Sky Blue card.  Glue onto the A5 blank card then glue the cut strip into position.

On the inside cover of the paper pad are various images that can be cut out.
Cut out 2 birds and the sentiment.  Add to the card with 3d foam pads.

Cut two pieces of Sky Blue card into strips and cut a "V" in the end to make a banner shape.  Ink the edges with Cosmic Shimmer Sky Blue Colour Cloud Blending Inks.
Shape the card and glue into position.  Add self adhesive pearls to the die cut strip to finish.

And there's the finished card!

It's quick, simple and mess free....ideal if you need a card in a hurry and nearly all the elements for it are in the paper pad!

As always, everything used is from Creative Expressions.

I'll be back next week with more Christmas designs so watch this space!

Thank you everyone for visiting and leaving comments...it's nice to know that you visit!

Until next time, have a happy, crafty week!
