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!

Navy and White

Good Morning All and a very Happy Tuesday!  I hope you all had a great Bank Holiday weekend...I know we did!  We were in Huddersfield at the Grand Northern Ukulele Festival...yes, I'm a ukulele player!

Well, I'd better get on with this weeks card.....

Using the Cosmic Shimmer Decadent Denim Spray Mist, spray through the small dot mask onto Coconut White card.
Dry thoroughly.

Turn over and emboss with the A4 Fine Filials Folder.

Stamp the message from the Decadent Damask Birthday Verses and cut to size.
Use this as a template to cut diagonally onto the dotty card.
Fold back the 4 triangles.

Cut the card to size, then using a pencil (or similar) curl the four triangles and glue the tips down.

Stamp the sentiment again onto a piece of card that is larger than the aperture with Black Archival Ink and emboss with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Powder.
Glue into position behind the aperture.
Matt and layer onto Foundations French Navy Card before gluing onto a blank 8x8 card.

 Die cut some Leaves from the Faux Quilled Leaves Set using the French Navy Card. Cut some flowers from the Camellia Open Petal Dies using French Navy Card and Closed Flower Dies using Coconut White Card.  Glue the flowers together.

Place the leaves and flowers onto the card and glue into position.  Add some 5mm and 8mm pearls to the flower centres and the 4 points of the triangles.  Add 3mm pearls to the leaves.  on the wording I've used the the Mini Swirls.
I've also used 2 of the white flowers with some Cosmic Shimmer Decadent Denim PVA Glue in the centres.

And that's the card finished!

Everything used for this card is from Creative Expressions.

Well, that's it for this week.  My day for blogging has been changed to Thursday as from next week so I hope you'll still be able to visit me.  Many thanks for stopping by and leaving comments, they're much appreciated.

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

Good morning Pam, I blame the bank holiday for being a day late. I really like the way you reveal your card stage by stage, which is so user friendly to follow, I wish more crafters would follow suit.
I love this card, I have never seen a background made this way before, yet it's not difficult but very effective. The colours are striking and the completed card is really lovely, and one I will be trying out in the near future. Thank you for the lengths you go to, teaching each step of the card. X Ros
