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!

Make Someone Happy

Good Morning All and a very Happy Tuesday!  I'm back with another design using the new frame stamps from Creative Expressions.

So without further ado, let's get started.....

Ink up the Wrought Iron Frame stamp with Black Archival Ink and stamp onto White Card.  Heat emboss with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Powder.
Ink up the centre section of the and stamp and heat emboss again.
Trim to size then matt and layer onto black card.

Matt and layer co-ordinating Teresa Collins papers onto White card for the main background then onto black card and some smaller pieces just onto Black card.
Glue into place.

Glue the larger stamped image into position then add the text section with 3d foam pads.

Ink up some flowers from the Art Flowers A5 Stamp Set with Black Archival Ink and stamp onto Teresa Collins paper.  Cut them out and shape them then glue them into position covering the text of the larger image.
Add some 3mm and 5mm self adhesive pearls to the flower centres and some Mini Pearl Swirls onto the main card.
And that's the card finished!
I do hope you like it, it's quite different from the sort of card I usually make but it's good to experiment sometimes!
Well, that's all for today except to say a big thank you for stopping by and leaving comments.  Whatever you do this week, just remember the sentiment from this stamp!
