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!

Sweet and Simple

Good Morning All and a very Happy Thursday!

While you're reading this I'll be in a trench at a dig near to Stonehenge!  It's also my 60th birthday today...a very odd way to spend the day!

Enough about me....let's have a look at this weeks project.

I've really decided to let the papers do the work this week as they are so gorgeous!  Let's get started.....

Matt and layer some Foundations Rich Plum card onto a blank 6x6 card.
Use the Mini Gemini Dies-Vela to cut the bottom of a square of Coconut White card.
Place a piece of the Blooming Beautiful paper behind the die cut area.
Matt and layer onto the Plum card.

Cut a panel of the Blooming Beautiful paper that has the bird on it and glue into position.

Cut a strip of Plum card and attach white Seam Binding around it.
Glue into position then add a piece of seam binding for a faux bow.

Ink up the sentiment from the Amazing Sentiments stamp set using Black Archival Ink.  Heat emboss with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Powder.
Cut out with the Spellbinders Standard Circles Small dies.
Cut a matt from the plum card using Spellbinders Scalloped Circles Large.
Attach to the card with 3d foam pads.

And there's the finished card!

I can't tell you how beautiful these papers are...you really need to stroke them!!!

As always, everything used is from Creative Expressions.
I'll be back next Thursday with another design....featuring more of the papers and this months selection of dies.  I do hope you join me!

Until then, many thanks for visiting and leaving comments...always much appreciated.  Have a happy, crafty week!

Hi Pam this is a stunning card. I know that you are having a great birthday. As you know that would not be my choice for spending my birthday but we are all different. Have a great week. Hugs Jackie
