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 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!

Easter Greetings!

Good Morning All and a very Happy Tuesday!

Have you seen the blog challenge running on the Creative Expressions site, if not, pop over there and take a look.  As it's Easter themed, the design team were asked to come up with an Easter card to give you some ideas so here's mine!

Stamp the chick from the A5 UMChick set of stamps with Black Archival Ink onto Coconut White Card.
Paint the chick with Sunshine Yellow and Sunset Orange Adirondack Inks.

Stamp again onto Couture Creations 6x6 paper from the Vintage Rose Garden Pad.

Cut out the egg parts and glue onto the 1st stamped image.

Cut out using the Spellbinders Classic Oval Large Dies.

Cut a matt from the paper pad with the Spellbinders Classic Oval Scalloped Dies.
Glue together.

Ink up the Daisy stamps from the A5 Bunnies set (UMBunnies) with Dandelion Archival Ink.  Stamp onto a piece of white card for the background.

Cut 2 strips of co-ordinating papers from the pad and glue into position just under the daisies.

Before matting and layering onto patterned paper (spot the deliberate mistake!) mask off the bottom edge of the strip of paper and stamp the flower heads.

I've had to mask off a larger area as I matted and layered..oops!

Now matt and layer onto a piece of patterned paper!!!

Decide where the chick is going and before sticking down, stamp the sentiment from the Chick set.  The sentiment is one stamp so I inked up the first word, stamped it then repeated with the 2nd word.

Glue the chick into position and add 3mm faux pearls to the flower centres and 5mm ones to the edges of the strip of paper.

And there's the finished card....I hope it's given you a few ideas for the challenge.

Everything used for this card is from Creative Expressions.

Once again, many thanks for visiting and leaving comments.  They are much appreciated.

So, until next time, have a happy, crafty week!

Good morning Pam, hope it's a sunny and warm one like we have in the Cambs fens. I like your Easter card, but to be honest it's not a card I have either made or received.
