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!

Loving the Lillies!

Good Morning All and a very Happy Tuesday!

Yes, I know, Cala Lillies are traditionally associated with funerals but I love them!  I'd fill my house with them if I could afford it.  I love the smell and the shape of them, well just about everything about them!!

Anyway, that's brought me to today's project....I think it has a real Springtime feel to it.  So, let's get started....

Stencil through the Leafy mask onto Coconut White Card with Citrus Adirondack Ink.

Ink up the Cala Lily Singles Stamp with Black Archival Ink and stamp onto Coconut White card.  Paint the Lily with Sunshine Yellow, Citrus and Sunset Orange Adirondack Inks.  Matt and layer onto Yellow and Green card.

Distress around the edges of the background card with Citrus Ink and emboss using the Creative Expressions Quilted Flower A4 Folder.  Matt and layer onto Yellow Card.

Colour a piece of White Seam Binding with the Citrus Ink and attach it to the card.  Add the Lillies with 3d foam pads.

Colour 3 more pieces of Seam Binding with the same inks that the Lillies were painted with.  Knot them around the piece of green ribbon.

Stamp the sentiment with Black Archival Ink then matt and layer,  Shape the card and attach it with glue and 3d foam pads.

And there's the finished card.  Hope you like it.  Of course, the stamp would be ideal for a Sympathy card but I've always liked to be different!

Well, that's it for this week.  Many thanks for stopping by and leaving comments.  Until next time, have a great week.
