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!

Mothering Sunday

Good Morning All and a very Happy Tuesday.

Today's make is with Mothering Sunday in mind.  I've deliberately left Mother's Day off as sometimes we might want to send a card to someone who has been like a mother to us.

Anyway, let's get started....

Ink up the Singles "Born Free" stamp with French Ultramarine Archival.  Stamp onto a piece of Coconut White card.

Cut out using the Californian Collection Basic Frames Set A Dies.

Cut a matt from Foundations Sky Blue card using the Californian Collection Decorative Frames Set B.

Matt and layer with 3d foam pads.

Dry emboss a piece of Coconut White card using the Couture Creations Large Circles Folder.

Matt and layer onto the Sky Blue Card.

Attach a strip of Pale Blue Seam Binding.

Glue the stamped image into position with Cosmic Shimmer Dries Clear Glue.

Stamp the sentiment using French Ultramarine Archival Ink and cut out with the Californian Collection Set A dies.

Cut out a matt using the Set B dies from Sky Blue Card.

Matt and layer with 3d foam pads.

Die cut some Petite Vinery sprays and glue into position. Glue the sentiment in place.
Tie a bow using the seam binding and glue into place.

And there's the finished card!

I'm not sure why the 2nd picture looks pink!!!

Everything used has come from Creative Expressions.

Anyway, hope you like it.  Many thanks for stopping by and leaving comments.

I'll be back next week with another make using this range of stamps.  Until the, have a happy, crafty week!

Hi Pam this is a fantastic card I love the stamp you have used. I have trouble with colours changing in photographs. Hugs Jackie

Hello Pam, please forgive me for not looking at this weeks blog until now, this hasn't been one of my best weeks, still here now. I do like the fit of the image inside the die, it looks as though it was made for it. The colours are a little distorted on my screen also, but I know what they look like so doesn't matter. All in all you have made a really lovely card, one which my granddaughter would love to play with. X Ros
