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!

Good Morning All and a very Happy Tuesday!

I'm still playing with the new range of Singles stamps from Creative Expressions and today I'm using the Anemone stamp.

Start by inking up the stamp with Black Archival Ink.  Heat emboss with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Powder.  Do this 3 times.
Paint with Cosmic Shimmer Drawing Inks in the following colours: Lime Burst, Magenta Flame and Rich Gold.
Water down the Rich Gold to paint the background to the flowers.

Cover one of the stamped images with Creative Expressions Double Sided Adhesive.  Apply Cosmic Shimmer Diamond Sprinkles Glitter Jewels.
Matt and layer all 3 panels.

Cut a piece of Coconut White Card for the background and stamp the "Happy Days" sentiment across the bottom with Black Archival Ink.
Dry emboss with the Spellbinders M-Bossabilities Dainty Dots Folder.

From a piece of pink card, die cut a strip using the Spellbinders Classic Triple Scallop.  Turn the card around and repeat so that it looks like flowers.
Cut a piece of green card to size.  Cover with double sided adhesive and apply the Diamond Sprinkles.
Matt and layer then glue onto the white background.

Add the 3 stamped images with 3d foam pads.

And there's the finished card!

I know that a lot of the pink and green strip is covered up but it looks more interesting than a plain border going across.  And as they say, "The Devil is in the Detail"!

Well, that's it for today.  The next Crafty Sunday is on 7th September so I hope some of you will be able to make it.

Many thanks for stopping by and leaving comments.
