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!

A Little Bit of Deco

Good Morning All and another week has flown by!  It's now officially Spring and the days are beginning to get a little longer.  We just need them to get drier and warmer as well!

For today's Creative Expressions Design Team Project I've used one of the Singles range of stamps.  This one is called "Art Deco Delight".

Start by trimming a piece of Metallic Vintage Gold Card to size.  Dry emboss with the A4 Heart Lattice Embossing Folder.
Apply Vintage Golden Green Gilding Wax around the edges and when dry, buff.
Matt and layer onto Foundations Black Cardstock.

Cut the largest shape from the Spellbinder Resplendent Rectangles Dies using Coconut White Cardstock.  With the die still in place, distress with Tea Dye Distress Ink.
Die cut the next size down using the Vintage Metallic Gold Card.
Stamp the Perfume Bottle onto Coconut White Card with Black Archival Ink and heat emboss with clear powder.

Paint the Perfume Bottle with Cosmic Shimmer Mica Powders Set 1 Metallics.  Cut the bottle out.

Stamp the sentiment from the stamp set onto the white rectangle.  It's a good idea to place the gold rectangle down so that you can see where you need to stamp.  Glue the rectangle into place.
Stick the gold rectangle on with 3d foam pads.
Shape the perfume bottle and stick onto the gold rectangle with foam pads in the centre and glue around the edges.

Tie a double bow using the Silky Crush Black Ribbon and attach to the card with a dry glue dot.
Stick a Black Dazzler to the centre of the bow and add 2 Black Stick Pins.
Cut the Black Self Adhesive Pearl Swirls into sections and add to the card around the Perfume Bottle.

And there's the finished card...quite classy I think!
I hope you like it. 

Many thanks for visiting and leaving comments.  I'll be back tomorrow with a project for Creative Studios so until then, take care and keep crafting!
