About Me

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!

More Nautical!

Thought I'd show you another Nautical themed card today but with a completely different look to yesterdays.
It can be difficult to make mens cards unless they like a pint or play sports but these Nautical stamps from Creative Expressions are great.  Even if they have no interest in the sea, there are maps and a globe.
The background for this card has been made with Cosmic Shimmer Misters.  I sprayed a piece of card with gold, placed the fretwork mask over the top and resprayed with green.  The edges were distressed with Peeled Paint.
For the globe, I sprayed the colours onto my craft mat, then used a paintbrush to colour it in.
The ships wheels were stamped, cut out, coloured with Distress Ink then triple thick embossed.  Other than that, just normal stamping and embossing.
This is another card from a workshop at Martells later this year.  I'm trying to be very organised this year and have all the workshops planned well in advance.  It's actually working and I only have 3 more projects to sort out for November!
The boot fair was a wash out...or should I say a snow out!
We ended up in a lovely country pub with a roaring log fire and met up with some friends that we hadn't seen since August last year.  A much better way of spending a very cold afternoon!
I'm off to the studio now to finish prepping for the demo on Wednesday.  I just hope people turn up!!
Also want to sort out some candy so please look out for that.
Many thanks for visiting and leaving comments.
