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!

New Singles Stamps

I've been lucky enough to be sent 2 of the new Singles range of stamps to play with this month as well as some of the new Cosmic Shimmer Misters.....I do love being on the Design Team for Creative Expressions!

This week I thought I'd combine the 2 stamps for this card.  So without further ado, let's begin!

Ink up the Ivy Corner stamp with Perfect Medium and stamp onto Coconut White Card.  Heat emboss with Clear Powder.
Spritz the Cosmic Shimmer Aqua Breeze Ink Spray Mist all over.  Dry then use a wet wipe to smear the ink around (as well as lifting it from the embossed image).

Spritz the mister onto a craft sheet and ink up the same stamp with it.  Stamp onto the card and blot to dry.
Spray some water onto your hand and flick water droplets onto the card.  Blot again to dry.

Distress the edges of the card with scissors then go around the edges with Seedless Preserve Distress Ink.
Dry emboss with the A4 Sea Garden Embossing Folder.  Highlight the raised areas with Seedless Preserve Ink.

Ink up the Botanical Spray stamp with Perfect Medium and stamp onto Coconut White card 3 times.  Heat emboss with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Powder.  Spray some Aqua Breeze Mister onto a craft sheet and pick up the ink with Cut 'n Dry foam.  Dab over the stamped image.
Emboss again with the Sea Garden A4 Folder.  Distress with Seedless Preserve Ink.

Die cut using Spellbinder Labels H in 3 different sizes to create a Pyrimage effect.  Draw around the largest of the dies used on black card and cut out to create a matt.  Matching the patterns up, put together with 3d pads.

There will be 2 leftover frames, glue these onto the card for added interest and texture.

Glue the 3d element onto the card.

Die cut 3 Butterflies using Spellbinder Les Papillons 2 from Coconut White card, shape and glue into place.  Add a 3mm black pearl to the bodies of the butterflies.

And we're finished!

Well, this is my last posting before Ally Pally.  I do hope that I'll see some of you there.  Please pop over and say hello.  I've also just received my copy of the Creative Expressions Project Book 3 and I've got to say, it is an enormous thrill to see one of my projects in it!

So until next time, have a great week and keep crafting!
