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 Thursday!

I'm back with another one of the new Sue Wilson Festive Collection Dies and this one is gorgeous!!!!

So without further ado...let's get started....

Apply swirls of Broken China, Faded Jeans and Dusty Concord Distress Inks to a piece of Coconut White Card.
Spritz lightly with water, dab with a piece of kitchen towel then dry.
Go around the edges with the Faded Jeans Distress Ink.  Use Cut 'n Dry foam for applying the inks.

Apply some Cosmic Shimmer Flake and Glitter Glue to the small star stamp (designed by Sam Poole last year for Creative Expressions....still available!).  Stamp onto the distressed background and add Cosmic Shimmer Silver Moon Gilding Flakes,

Matt and layer onto Foundations Vintage Silver Card then glue onto a 6x6 card blank.

Die cut the Festive Collection-Dove of Peace (which includes the word "Peace") twice from Coconut White card.
On one of the doves, lightly apply some Broken China Distress ink.
Glue the 2 doves together leaving the wings free.
Glue into position on the card and shape the top wing.
Glue the words onto position and you're finished!

I hope you like it!  It was really nice to get inky...sometimes we forget to use the older techniques but this worked so well with the dove.

Well, that's it for this week.  I will be giving away one of the cards again this month so on the blog for the 27th, tell me which one is your favourite from this months selection and it could be winging its way to you!

Until next time, have a happy, crafty week!
