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!

Long Lost Friend!

Good Morning All!

Do you ever go through your craft stash and realise that you've got a product that was loved then pushed to one side?  I recently tidied up (a miracle I know!) and found my fusible fibres.  Well, I couldn't let an opportunity to use them again go by so, here they are in this weeks Creative Expressions Design Team piece.

Ink up the Christmas Rose from the Winter Flower Stamp Set with Black Archival Ink.
Place some Cosmic Shimmer Heat Bondable Angel Fibres in Enchanted Metallics over the top of the stamp.
Cover over with a piece of vellum (or baking parchment) and press down with an iron.  Don't be tempted to move the iron around too much, just lift it and press down again.  When the fibres have fused you'll be able to see the ink outline of the stamp.

Cut out the flower head.
Stamp the Christmas Rose again onto Coconut White cardstock with Black Archival Ink and heat emboss with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Powder.  Paint the leaves and stem with Cosmic Shimmer Watercolours in Holly Leaf and Autumn Twist. 

Die cut the Flower using Spellbinders Labels 28.  Glue the Bondable Film Flower into place with Cosmic Shimmer Dries Clear Glue.
Die cut a matt.
Using the Creative Expressions A4 Tapestry Folder, emboss a piece of Coconut White Cardstock.   Apply Patina Gilding Wax around the edges.

Matt and layer then glue the Flower element into place.
Tie a knot into a piece of tulle to make a "faux bow" then tie a double bow using the crushed satin ribbon.
Glue onto the card and add a Silver Dazzler to the centre of the bow to finish.

So get searching out all of your hidden treasures!  You'll be surprised what you find!
Many thanks for your visit and comments and until next time...keep crafting!
