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!

Ink Free Zone!

Good Morning All and a very Happy Tuesday!

This is going to come as a shock, I've made a whole card without stamping or getting any ink out!!!  Unheard of!!!

This weeks card for Creative Expressions has been made with some gorgeous papers I was sent to play with.  They're from Couture Creations and come in a 6x6 pad called "Vintage Rose Garden ".

So let's start....

Cover a card with paper from the Couture Creations Pad leaving a small border around the edges.

Cut a strip of co-ordinating paper from the same pad and use it to make a pocket at the bottom of the card by gluing on 3 sides.

Use the Couture Creations "Touch of Love" Ornamental Lace die to cut a heart from white card.
Cut one more from patterned paper.

Glue the hearts together slightly off-setting them.
Glue into place on the card leaving the bottom of the heart free.

In the pad there are papers with postcards and stamps.
Cut out the postcards and arrange them in to pocket at the bottom of the card.

From the same piece of paper, cut out the stamps.

Glue some into position and add the rest with 3d foam pads.

Tie a bow from White Seam Binding and attach to the card.

Add some 3mm self adhesive pearls to the heart to finish.

And there's the finished card!  Hope you like it.

I would like to say a big thank you for all the lovely comments last week.  It really makes doing this worthwhile if I know you're getting some ideas from the blog.  Glad you can follow my instructions....my husband is convinced I speak "Pam".  Luckily, he's quite fluent in it!

Well, that's all for this week except to say that Creative Expressions has started a blog challenge so do pop over to their website for a look.  The theme is Easter and that's what I'll be doing next week!

Until then, have a happy, crafty week!

Good morning Pam, the paper pad sounds as though it's covered all areas for crafters within the pad. I like your card very much and that's its all in house is great. See you next week.X Ros

Hi Pam this is a gorgeous card. It is strange to see no stamping but the card you have created is beautiful. Hugs Jackie
