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!

How Can it be Tuesday Already!

Well, another week has whizzed by and suddenly it's Tuesday again!  So here I am, back with another project for the Creative Expressions Design Team.

This time I've used the "Get Well Soon" stamp from the Singles range and flowers from the Steampunk Flowers A5 stamp set.  So let's begin!

Randomly stamp one of the flowers from the Steampunk Flowers set onto Coconut White card using Perfect Medium Ink.  Heat emboss with Cosmic Shimmer True White Powder.  Using Cut 'n Dry foam, apply Tumbled Glass Distress Ink around the area of the flowers.  The embossed images will resist the ink.  Wipe off any excess ink with a piece of kitchen towel.

Ink up the Get Well Soon stamp with Tumbled Glass Distress Ink and stamp onto Coconut White card.  Heat emboss with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Powder.  Using the same ink, paint some of the stamped image and distress around the edges.  Cut out and matt and layer onto black card.  The do the same with Coconut White card.

Attach to the background with 3d foam pads.

Stamp some of the Steampunk Flowers onto Coconut White card with Tumbled Glass Distress Ink and heat emboss with Clear powder.  Cut out the flowers and remove petals from a few of them.  Distress around the edges with the same ink.  Glue the flower together.

Cut 6 lengths of White Seam Binding and glue together to form a cross.  Using the Spellbinder Foliage Set, die cut 2 stems of leaves.  With the die still in place, distress with the Tumbled Glass Ink.

Glue all of the elements into place with Cosmic Shimmer Dries Clear Glue.  Add an 8mm White self adhesive Pearl to the centre of the flower to finish.

And that's the finished card!

I hope you agree that it would cheer up someone who is feeling under the weather!

Ally Pally is only a few weeks away so I hope you've got your tickets!  I'm really looking forward to the show and love doing the demo's, I hope to see some of you there.

Just a couple of spaces left for the workshops in April.  If you're interested, please phone the shop.

There are lots of Creative Expressions shows coming up over the next few days on Create and Craft.  The lovely Julia Watts is on tomorrow.  Sam Poole has shows on Sunday 30th for the Tool Shed (Sam's lovely as well!)  I've been busy making samples for the shows so maybe you'll get to see some of them.

Talking of Sam, if you head over to the Creative Studios  site, Sam is looking for a new DT member...it could be you!

Well, that's all for today, back tomorrow with a Creative Studios project... see you then!
