Happy Birthday!.
Pam Simpson

Hello everyone, do you ever see a die shape and know just what your going to do with it! This is the case when Poppystamps fetched out this "Echo Blossoms" die set..said to me Flower Foam..have you ever tried this foam!, love the natural look you can create using dies and Flower Foam.


Here`s how I did these beautiful looking flowers..so easy!


I have used one above the smallest die in the set and 2 above, you can cut many layers of the flower foam together, with a die, I did 3 layers of white.


Scribbled a touch of colour, believe me you do not have to be careful! cheap oil pastels, you can use lots of colouring mediums.



gather the tops and scrunch up as shown.


unroll the petals.


I use a hot glue gun to layer these petals up.


My topper for the flowers..Cream and soft green card.


I used hot glue, to place the foam flowers and Orchard Leaves. I did a bit more scrunching up bottom of the flowers, before placing in the hot glue.


Would you have thought you could create beautiful flowers from these dies..

Finished card 6.1/4 inches x 7. 1/2 inches.. alternately you could make a smaller card around 5.1/4 inches x 6.1/4 inches ..I like a large card for our UK designs.

The Flower Foam I used.. can be easily be moulded with your fingers, sometimes I`ll use a travel iron, this tends to shrink the foam...I do use both methods.

Thank you for stopping by Pam x.

Friends Are Flowers That Never Fade..
by Pam Simpson

Hello everyone, my card today, using one sheet of paper! from Memory Box Springtime bouquet 6x6 paper pad, strips and spots.


I have used this pretty Poppystamp die "Adriana Square Frame" it measure 4 inches square. perfect to use Poppystamp Double Stitched Square frames..I have kept to Tone on Tone Lilac.


In white card I cut 2 Adriana Square Frame , I wanted to adhere together to add  strength to my top layer of paper.


Place your die in the center of this 6 x 6  paper and run through your die cutting machine.. Keep the waste!


I had lilac card the same colour tone as this paper,  using the Double Stitched dies I cut the largest in the set.


using wet glue (pva)  on the outermost adhere to the frame. You could at this stage make this into a shaker ..Before you adhere the Adriana square, use acetate on the stitched square and the adhere the Adriana onto acetate.. 


I have used 3d shaker foam tape, as this is narrow .. 


Adhere to 4" square.


Adhere the waste 6 x 6 paper to white card.


Sorry Colour not very good on this next picture.. but hopefully you`ll understand.. I adhered the topper to a white 4.1/4 inch mat... I have used  1.1/2 inch x 6.1/2 inch white card, wrapped white 1" satin  ribbon.. adhere this to the back,  my topper I adhered as shown.


I added a few finishing touch`s ..white gel pen on the leaves and Fairy Sugar "Lavender Ice" on the berries.. butterflies from Butterfly Symphony die  and bow.


Close up of the topper, hopefully you can see the delicate touch of glitter..

Thank you for stopping by Pam, stay safe  xxx.

Wishing You The Best Birthday.
by Pam Simpson

Hello everyone, have you seen this new Easel Card die set from Poppystamps Dies ..Adriana Pop Up Easel Set.. how easy is this, the die does it all for you, cuts & scores one pass through your die cutting machine.


I have used Ivory and Green card colours, Pink Glitter card for accent colours.


I have used 3d foam tape to add depth ..Only to the top dies cuts, I have cut 3 of the leaf panels in ivory, and adhered these together and then added the 3d foam..this I adhered to the green front panel.


Can you see the difference in the panels, bottom one is inside the easel card, this has been adhered flat, I will add a sentiment/verse when needed ..top panel has a lot of depth.


I used my Misti to stamp this sentiment, I find it easier to stamp the first line and then add the rest of the stamps, rather that stamp in one go.


making sure my sentiments fits the tag shape from the Easel card.


I have used Pointed Ovals adhered the outer leaves. pva glue and ..deep 3d foam tape to the underside of the tag.


I finished by adding dainty flowers and bow, these I cut with Memory Box Glitter card in pink and Sour Grapes Glitter glue. 


I used the smaller tag as a stopper ..

Thank you for stopping by Pam.. please stay safe! xxx
