About Me

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!

Happy, Happy August!!

Good Morning All and a very happy Tuesday.  Not only is it Tuesday but it's my first posting this month which means that there are some gorgeous new stamps to show you from Creative Expressions!

I thought I'd make something cheerful for my desk this week and found an MDF Pen Pot Holder that I bought ages ago but had left languishing at the back of a cupboard!  So here goes!

Paint the holder with Cosmic Shimmer Warm White Matt Chalk Paint.

Stamp the flowers 4 times onto Coconut White Card with Black Archival Ink and heat emboss with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Powder.
Paint with Cosmic Shimmer Drawing Inks in the following colours:
Lime Burst, Peacock Teal, Rich Gold and Ancient Copper.
Trim to size.

Cut some Coconut White Card to fit the 4 sides of the pen holder.

Stamp the sentiment "Happy Days" across all 4 pieces of card.  Paint the 1st letters of each word with the drawing Inks.
Put some of the Peacock Teal Drawing Ink onto a craft sheet and water it down before painting around the edges of the card.
Glue onto the pen holder with Cosmic Shimmer Dries Clear Glue.

Paint the edges of the pot and a section of the base with Cosmic Shimmer Midnight Matt Chalk Paint.

Glue the stamped panels into place with Cosmic Shimmer Dries Clear Glue.

And that's the finished project!

It's going to look fab on my desk with all of my essentials in it!!

I do hope you like it.  I'll be back  next week using another stamp from the range.  I'll also be posting tomorrow with a card using the new Xmas stamps from Sam Poole at Creative Studios so I hope you'll visit and see what I've come up with!

Many thanks for dropping by today and until next time....keep crafting!
