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!

Snowy Brook!

Good Morning All and a Very Happy Tuesday.  I can't believe that it's September already....definitely time to start those Xmas cards!

With that in mind, here's my blog post for the Creative Expressions Design Team.  I've used one of the new Singles stamps, this one is called "Snowy Brook Bauble"

Well, let's get started!

Stamp the Snowy Brook Bauble onto Coconut White card with Black Archival Ink.
Paint with Distress Inks in the following colours:
Gathered Twigs, Peeled Paint, Stormy Sky and Mustard Seed.  Leave some of the areas white.

Cut out using the Spellbinders Festive Collection Sentimental Baubles.

Cover the bauble with Double Sided Adhesive, cut around the bauble, then cover with Cosmic Shimmer Diamond Sprinkles Glitter Jewels.

Repeat stamp the A6 Mistletoe Background stamp onto Coconut White card with the Stormy Sky Distress Ink.
Dry Emboss with Spellbinders M-Bossabilities Dainty Dots Folder.
Distress the edges with the Stormy Sky Ink.

Paint the leaves with Peeled Paint Ink, then matt and layer onto Black Foundations Card.

Attach a piece of the Green/Ivory Striped Grosgrain ribbon to the left side of the card.

Die cut Spellbinders Labels 28in Black and Coconut White Card.

Stamp the Mistletoe stamp with Stormy Sky Ink onto the white label.  Emboss as before and paint the leaves.
Matt and layer and add to the card.

Attach the Bauble with 3d foam pads to the label.

Gather the ribbon and attach a bow with a glue dot.
To finish, attach a Small Fancy Pearl Embellishment to the centre of the bow.

And there's the finished card.  I hope you like it!

Well, that's all for today...I've got another 4 projects for this month using some of the new products available from Creative Expressions, I do hope that they give you some ideas.

Many thanks for visiting and I'll see some of you on Saturday!  Hopefully, some more of you will come to say Hello at the Rubbernecker stand where I'll be with Sue Wilson over the weekend of the 20th/21st.

So until next time, have a great week!
