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!

Best Wishes

Good Morning All and today I bring you another project using one of the gorgeous Singles stamps from Creative Expressions.

I've gone very bright and sunny for this one (after all, the forecast is supposed to be good this week!).

So let's begin....

Stamp the Singles Best Wishes stamp using Black Archival Ink onto Coconut White Card.  Paint the image using Adirondack Sunshine Yellow, Sunset Orange , Citrus and Sailboat Blue Inks.
Cover with double sided adhesive sheet, cut to size then add Micro Beads.
Matt and layer onto orange, yellow and green card.

On a piece of Coconut White Card, stamp the flower section from the Best Wishes stamp twice more. 
Paint using the same colours as before.  Cut out.

Matt and layer using the same colour card as before but this time, add a layer of Coconut White card.
Glue the 2 flower sections into place at each end of the card.
Add the main image with 3d pads.

Die cut some flowers from the Spellbinder Finishing Touches Faux Quilled Blooms set.  Cut some Leaves from the Faux Quilled Leaves.  Arrange on the card and glue into place with Cosmic Shimmer Dries Clear Glue.
Add an 8mm White Pearl to the flower centres to finish.

And there's the finished card!

Just a quick thank you to everyone who came to Crafty Sunday, I hope you all enjoyed it.  I'll let you know the date of the next one as soon as possible but I'm thinking possibly June 22nd.  I'm just waiting to hear if we're needed for a festival (filming) that weekend.

Well, that's all for now.  I'll be back in the morning with a project for Creative Studios using the new Nautical stamps.
Until then, have a happy, crafty time and thanks for your visit.
