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!

Hang in There!

Good Morning and a very Happy Tuesday and a Happy New Year!

I hope everyone had a great Christmas and that Santa brought you all the crafting goodies you wished for!

I've had a new batch of Singles stamps from Creative Expressions to play with over Christmas (it felt like an extra pressie!)

So without further ado, here's my first DT piece using them.  I've used "Pickle" for this one as well as the "Paws-Itively Great" sentiment stamps and the "Paw print Lattice" Background stamp.

Ink up Pickle with Black Archival Ink and stamp onto Coconut White Card.
Stamp again onto 2 different pieces of Couture Creations Damask Delight paper.
Cut out the paper images and glue onto the original image using the 2nd paper for the rope.

Cut a piece of Coconut White card for the background.  Randomly stamp the Paw Print Lattice background with Citrus Adirondack Ink.
Stamp over the top with "Hang in There" using Black Archival Ink.
Matt and layer onto the same paper as the rope was cut from.

Matt and layer Pickles onto the same paper and Black Foundations Card.

Cut a Lattice Strip from the Spellbinders 3d Lattice Bow set.
Glue to the left side of the card.

Attach Pickles to the card with 3d foam pads.

Die cut the Lattice Bow using the same 2 papers as before.  Glue the smaller one on top and add a Small Round Black Circle Dazzler to the centre.  Glue into place on the card.

And there's the finished project!

Everything used on this card is from Creative Expressions.  I do hope you like it.

As you read this, I'll be setting off on a cruise to Rio (Steve is working on it).  I have all my projects scheduled and ready to go until I get back on the 23rd.

So until next time, have a happy, crafty week and please stop by while I'm away....I've got some lovely projects lined up!!

Lovely cards, that kitten is so cute. Enjoy your cruise. We aren't doing a big one this year due to renovating a new home, but we are slowly building up to do the world in the year hubby gets his state pension in six yrs. We are up to 5 weeks, so need to do a couple of months next year.X Ros
