About Me

My photo
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!

Good Morning All and a Very Happy Tuesday!

I can't believe that it's the end of the month already but that means this is the last blog using the new Couture Creations Dies and onto something new next week!!!

I think I've saved one of the best till last but I'll let you be the judges of that!  Anyway, here goes....

Cut a square of Couture Creations Vintage Rose Garden paper to size and distress the edges with a pair of scissors.

Cut a strip of coordinating paper to size and distress with scissors.  Glue onto the square of paper then matt and layer onto Black Foundations Card.

Cut an Oval using Spellbinders Classic Oval Large Dies from Coconut White Card.  Leave the die in place and lightly distress with Antique Linen Ink.

Die cut Couture Creations Intricutz Vintage Rose Collection Garden Lamp from patterned paper.
Glue onto the oval.
Cut the same die using white card and cut off the banner at the bottom.  Stamp the sentiment Breathe from the Creative Expressions A5 Art Sayings Stamps.
Glue onto the paper die.
Cut a Spellbinders Scalloped Oval from Black Card to matt.

Attach to the card with 3d foam pads.

Die cut Spellbinders Spiral Blossom 3 using paper from the pad.  Roll into 3d flowers.
Use a little Shabby Shutters Distress Ink on the edges of the petals.
Glue onto the card.

Use the Spellbinders Foliage Dies to cut leaves from black card.  Glue into position.

Cut the word "Smile" from one of the pieces of paper in the pad.  Matt and layer onto black card.
Add to the main card with 3d foam pads to finish.

And there we have it!

I hope the instructions were clear!

Well, that's it for this week.  As always, many thanks for your visit and leaving comments.

I'll be back next week with new goodies to show you and I might even leave a few hints about what I'll be demoing at Ally Pally!!!

Until next time, have a happy, crafty week!
