Beautiful Love..
by Pam Simpson

Hello everyone, today I`m sharing a card using these beautiful papers by Prima "Love Story"  you can purchase from Birch Press   ...They are stunning..and you can make a quick card.


I choose to use a few Dies as I wanted to see the paper on my card design...I`ll share how I created a shadow with my "Love Stitch Circle Frame" from Poppystamp Dies.


Start by cutting the Love frame in white and brown card.


Cut away the word love and adhere as shown.


I have offset the scallops on the outer circle.


Like this on the reverse.


Next place 3d foam tape as shown.


Adhere to the top left of card base.. Pretty boarder die from Poppystamps "Pierced Borders" I have used  on the top and bottom of my card strip, they do match up for a continued pattern. 

Hope you like this simple card..Thank you for stopping by Pam x

by Pam Simpson

Hello everyone, our Blog Blitz continues,  today you have a chance to win this ..."Cute Phone Booth" ...from the New  Spring Collection.  But make sure you comment below!


Now I have made a cute card! but the possibilities to use a Phone box are endless! especially for Male cards..


Hope you can see this clearly, look at the Phone Booth, cut out in red and you`ll see a piece of acetate and strong red double sided tape! I used this tape to stick these together. I then trimmed around the outer edge and around the door! as you have the option to either keep it closed or open!.


Slightly ajar in this photo.


I have used for decoration Easter stamps and die set, again from the New Spring release! as I do not send Easter cards I opted to make a get in touch card lol.

Finial Corner..Blog Blitz.
by Pam Simpson


Hello everyone, going into spring with my card design today.  


As it`s a Blog Blitz that means a prize to win, so if you would like a chance to win this beautiful "Finial Corner"  just leave me a comment..


Above how I created my background colour using Oxide inks.


Background cut to size.. fantastic New "Double Stitched Rectangle Frames" around..Placed in my Misti  ..For placement of my stamping I have just placed the die cut words "Love" as shown (this has been inked while still in the die)..I also cut my stamps as shown as I did`nt need to stamp the word love and wanted a space in-between my stamping, so easy to line up to use! so this is something I tend to do.


Stamped already to finish in pink Oxide ink.



Close up of the finished topper, placed on an angle! not very often I do this..can you see this pretty "Stitched Heart Border" another new die!.



I random placed some with dots and finished with a bright pink ribbon bow..

I created a background for my card using the "Tumbled Heart Collage" die..Now I could have just used one as my  central focus!.

How I did my background photos below..sorry for the poor photo quality as these were taken at night and I kept getting my light from above shinny on the project lol.


Start with a card size above..run in your die cutting machine with the die as shown.


Sorry for fuzzy picture.. die cut as shown.


Not the glitter card I used (change my mind)  but showing what I used.


Red glitter card I used with  the "Embossed Love" cut with white & grey card adhered to create a shadow.  this I adhered onto a velum strip, adhered to the back panel.


Using Poppystamps "Valentine Fairies" clear stamps for my sentiment (top) and three stamped hearts..

Also a close up "Blooming Rose"die cut in grey card I used double sided sticky to the back as I wanted the rose pieces in place and white open die cut adhered onto this.


Finished card size. 7"x 51.4" ..
