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!

The Blessings of Christmas

Good Morning All and a Very Happy Tuesday!

I've gone with a very traditional look for today's project.  I've used the A5 Christmas Florals Stamp Set from Creative Expressions for this card.

Well, enough chat, let's get started!

Ink up the Poinsettia stamp with Black Archival and stamp several times onto Coconut White Card.  Heat emboss with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Powder.
Paint the flowers with Festive Berries Distress Ink.

Cover the card with a sheet of Double Sided Adhesive.  Cover with Cosmic Shimmer Diamond Sprinkles then cut the flowers out.

Ink up the Poinsettia Stamp with Festive Berries Distress Ink then randomly stamp onto a piece of Coconut White Card.
Dry Emboss with the A4 Festive Swirls Folder.

Matt and layer using Ruby and Brunswick Green Foundations Cardstock.

Stamp the sentiment with Black Archival Ink onto Coconut White Card.  Heat emboss with Clear Powder.  Cut out with the Spellbinders Standard Circles Small Die.  With the die still in position, distress with the Festive Berries Ink.
Cover with double sided adhesive then apply the Diamond Sprinkles.  Cut out.
Draw around the outer edge of the die and cut out the circle.
Die cut 2 Spellbinder Scalloped Circles.
Matt and layer adding the sentiment with 3d foam pads.

Die cut the Festive Collection Pine Bough from the Brunswick Green Card.  Glue into position on the card.
Glue some of the Poinsettias into place then add the rest with 3d foam pads.
Glue a piece of red Seam Binding to the back of the sentiment.
Attach to the card with 3d foam pads.

And there's the finished card!

I do hope you like it....you could add some gems to the flower centres for a bit of extra bling...after all, it is for Christmas and that's the one time of year you can really go to town!!!

Well, that's all for this week.  Many thanks, as always, for visiting and leaving comments.

I'll be back next week with another project, this one isn't Christmas related but I have made it to give to a friend as a little Christmas present.

Until next time, have a happy, crafty week!
