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!

Let Your Dreams Fly

Good Morning All and a Very Happy Tuesday!

Only a few days to go until Ally Pally and I'm up to my ears prepping the demos!  I'll be doing 3 on Saturday and 2 on Sunday in the main demo area so I hope you'll pop in and say hi.  Other than that, I'll be on the Rubbernecker Stand with the fab Sue Wilson.  You'll even get the chance to meet Mr.S!!!

Anyway, let's get on with this weeks project.....

For this card, I've used the new Elements Stamps - Butterfly Dreams designed by Jonathon Lockwood for Creative Expressions.

Use the Spellbinder Circle Dies to cut 3 different sized holes in a piece of acetate.

Using this as a mask, stencil through with Pink Sherbet and Aqua Adirondack Inks on Cut 'n Dry Foam.
Overlap some of the circles.

Stamp the butterflies from the set onto the circles with Black Archival Ink.
Stamp the bubble stamp in between the circles.
Add a strip of Black Seam Binding  to the left hand side.

Matt and layer onto Black Foundations Card.

Stamp the sentiment onto Coconut White Card.
Paint the letters with the same inks as before.
Trim to size then stamp a couple of butterflies in the spaces and paint them.

Matt and layer onto black card.
Put onto the background with 3d foam pads.

Tie a triple bow with the seam binding and attach with a glue dot.
Add a Lilac Dazzler to finish.

And that's the completed card.....hope you like it!

Well, apart from thanking you for stopping by and leaving comments, that's all for this week.
I'll be back next Tuesday with another make using these gorgeous stamps.
Until then, have a happy, crafty week!

Hi Pam, sorry I didn't get to your blog last Tues, we had terrible news and I missed three days, but better news for my brother, but nephew died for NAR.
I went to Ally Pally, but couldn't get near Sue as I use a scooter, saw Julia, John, Phil and Katherine but so busy I didn't get to say hi to anyone. Got some amazing bargains. We are cruising in Sept, so won't be there for next show. Try again next year. X Ros
