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!

Gold and White

Good Morning All and a very Happy Thursday!!!

Hope I didn't catch too many of you out with the change of day!

Anyway, a new month which means new goodies from Creative Expressions to play with!

The stamp used in this card is called "Floribunda" and it matches the Sue Wilson Portuguese Collection - Lisbon Die Set.

So let's get started.....

Ink up the stamp with Perfect Medium and stamp onto Coconut White Card.  Heat emboss using Cosmic Shimmer Bright Gold Metallic Powder.

Cut out using the largest of the Lisbon Dies.

Emboss a piece of Coconut White Card with the A4 Rambling Blossoms Folder.
Matt and layer onto Foundations Vintage Gold Card.
Attach to the blank C5 card.

Cut out the 2nd smallest complete die using the gold card.
Cut out again with the inner pattern in place, this time using Coconut White card.

Stamp the sentiment from the Flower Hearts Elements Stamp Set by John Lockwood using Perfect Medium onto the white card.
Heat emboss with the gold powder as before.

Glue the gold and white die cut shapes together.

Cut a strip of Creative Expressions Gold Tulle and tie a knot in the centre.  Attach to the card with a dry glue dot then trim to the right length.

Add the floral stamp with 3d pads.

Add the sentiment with a double layer of 3d pads.

Cut out 2 of the Trailing Ivy Finishing Touches Dies from Coconut White Card.
Shape the leaves and attach to the card with glue and 3d pads.

And there's the finished card!  It would make a lovely card for a Golden Wedding Anniversary.  With a change of sentiment it could be used for so many occasions, my favourite sort of design!!
I hope you like it!

As always, everything used on here is from Creative Expressions.

Just leaves me to say, many thanks for stopping by and leaving comments, they are much appreciated.

I'll be back next Thursday with another design using the same die set....let's see how many ways I can think of using it!

Until next time, have a happy, crafty week!

Good morning Pam, I hope you smiled at my message to you I left on Tuesday. Can't be sure to remember the day it was hit and miss on Tuesday's. It would be so much easier for me if you did a daily blog. Lol
This card is so lovely, soft gold on white looks beautiful and the stamp is really lovely too. Thank you for not leaving just a change of day.
X Ros

What a beautiful card. Just one tiny weeney element missing in my opinion, a flower or something to cover the knot you have tied in the tulle, apart from that your white and gold card is beautifully elegant. Must look back at all I've missed as new to your blog Pam. I have to say that I love the way you present your blog, showing and reveiling your work stage by stage.
Have a good weekend.
Lancashire Steph.
