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!

Pretty in Pink

Good Morning All and a very Happy Tuesday.

As it's Tuesday, it can only mean one thing, and that's Design Team day for Creative Expressions.  This week I've come up with a design using two of the new Singles range of stamps.  They are called "Engraved Elegance" and "Scented Corner".

Start by applying Flake and Glitter Glue to the Scented Corner stamp. Stamp it in 2 corners of a piece of Coconut White card that has been trimmed to size.  Apply Summer Meadow Gilding Flakes.
Dry Emboss with the Vintage Plumes Embossing Folder.

Ink up the Engraved Elegance Perfume Bottle with Perfect Medium and stamp onto a piece of Coconut White card.  Heat emboss with Cosmic Shimmer Bright Gold Powder.
Using Spun Sugar Distress Ink, edge the embossed piece of card and the card with the perfume bottle on.  Use the same ink to make a watercolour and paint the perfume bottle.

Matt and layer onto Black Foundation Cardstock.
Tie a double bow with Dusky Pink Sheer Wrinkled Edge Ribbon.
Take a clear Dazzler, cover it with Perfect Medium Ink and heat emboss with Cosmic Shimmer True White Powder to change it's colour.

Stick the stamped image onto the card with 3d foam pads.  Attach the ribbon and the Dazzler with dry glue dots.

It's not my usual style (I'm not known for "girly" designs!) but it does look pretty and would make a great Mother's Day card.  I hope you like it!

I'll be back tomorrow with a card for the Creative Studios Design Team, hope to see you then!
