Art Impressions Party Girls

Hi All,

I had sooooo much fun doing today's card!  It was one of those that felt easy.....Believe me, some of these cards just don't want to flow!  I used the super cute Art Impressions Party Girls!  The set comes with some great sentiments that are very versatile and can be used with soooo many different images!  I also used Memento Black to stamp my image and copics to color.  I had some scraps of some fun paper in my stash that I used with some larger 10mm brads!

YNS – Flourish in Life, Hero Arts, Memory Box Vivienne Butterfly

Hi all, Madge here for another Wonderful Wednesday at OCS.  Have you noticed that Lora has a SALE.  Oh my,  so many bargains!P1010680 copy

Today I’ve chosen a Hero Arts “Floral Wreath” Stamp and embossing die set, which I notice that Lora does not have in stock right now.  I stamped the image in Champagne VersaMark, embossed it with white EP, and fussy cut the center. I used a Stylus Blending Tool to blend Tim Holtz Distress Inks (Dried Marigold, Faded Jeans, Rusty Hinge and Shabby Shutter) onto the White cardstock, rubbing off the excess with a kleenex. I stamped the YNS sentiment stamp from Humming-Bird Beauty in black on pale blue cardstock and pop dotted the embossed image over top.  The lace rectangle is a MS round the border punch and the Butterfly is a Memory Box die cut called Vivienne.

Hope you will enter the OCS challenge for the month of October which is Kraft, Black and Red. 

Remember, Stamp up a Storm, Ink up a Wish and send it on to someone to brighten their day!

It's the last Tuesday of the month - ALREADY!!!! Where did the month go?!!
Since it's the last Tuesday it must be time to do the Terrific Tuesday post for One Crazy Stamper and for today's card I've combined three High Hopes Stamps to make one cute card.
This is "Little Sleuth" and "Watson", which were both stamped on Copic Xpress It cardstock with Tuxedo Black Memento ink, and then colored with Copics. I then fussy cut the images, and popped them up on the card front that was embossed with the Crafts Too Bone and Pawprint Folder, and lightly inked with Rich Cocoa Memento ink. The faux stitches were done with a red Copic Sketch marker, and the Tracking sentiment is also from High Hopes ( the inside of the card has the remaining sentiment - Your Birthday ).

Christmas in a Cup

Hi Everyone

As this is my last post for the month for OCS and Christmas is almost 3 months away, I thought it was about time to start making some Christmas cards.  For today's card I used this cute Penny Black image called Christmas in a Cup.

I stem stitched the outer edge of the Spellbinders Marvelous Squares die with gold Sulky thread and used the Ice Spruce from the Ranger`s Distress Ink Winter Colours to add some colour to the Spellbinders M-Bossabilities Holiday Magic.

Supplies used:
You have one more week to enter this month's Red, Black and Kraft challenge, before a brand new challenge starts on the 1st.

Hi All,

I am trying to get whatever summer colors I can before the fall and Christmas colors take over my stamp table!  I used the super cute Rosabelle from Kraftin Kimmie.  I used the star circle Nestabilities.  I also used the Loopy Bloom and the open edge Dienamic from My Favorite Things.  This is one of my all time favorite images because I absolutely LOVE coloring her!

Only a week left to play in the months One Crazy Stamper challenge!  Have a great week!

To Go Please........!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Here's a special card for ONE OF THOSE DAYS!!!! You all know what kind of day I'm referring to, and we have all had at least one of those days ourselves, so when I saw this new stamp from Art Impressions I knew that it would be perfect to have a few cards with the image and sentiment on hand!
The set "All Tied Up" and "To Go" are colored with Copics, fussy cut and mounted on some of last year's Bo Bunny Zoology collection of papers.

You still have a couple of weeks left to enter to win the challenge here at One Crazy Stamper - the theme this month is a color challenge using Kraft, Red and Black.  So get your favorite coloring medium out, or make a scrapbook page using the theme, and enter to win!!!!

Snoesjes - Snoes with Dog

Hi All

It is a gorgeous sunny Sunday here, even though it is a bit cool, there is no doubt that Fall is definitely coming. For my post today for One Crazy Stamper, I have used a Marianne Design stamp called Snoesjes - Snoes with Dog.

As there are so many techniques and new products available; I have decided that at least once a month, possibly more that I will  try a new technique or add something different to the cards. 

For this card, I used  a new cut, emboss and embroidery die that Lora has in stock at OCS; and am really quite pleased with how the it turned out.  It is cut and embossed in the usual way using one of the thin metal adapter plates.  The holes didn't need any extra pricking and I used red and green Sulky thread to embroider.

Supplies used:
There is still plenty of time to enter this month's Red, Black and Kraft challenge for a chance to win a prize from One Crazy Stamper.  Also, don't forget to check out Lora's store One Crazy Stamper for some great deals and the amazing new products that are arriving daily.

High Hopes BBQ Dragon

Hi All!

I love, love, love this high hopes dragon.  I find myself reaching for him all the time.  He is my go to little guy for guy cards.  His name is Flame Broilin!  Isn't that the cutest name!  As always I used my memento tuxedo black ink.  love, love this stuff.  It is my go to black ink!

I also used some clearsnaps smooches paint to paint the glitter on his apron and hat.  It adds just a little something extra.  I had some wooden buttons in my stash and wanted to add something to the edges.  I finished those off with some twine.

Shiver Me Timbers!!!

Here's another card that fits this month's challenge theme of Kraft, Red and Black.  This is High Hopes "The Thundering Rogue" available here at OCS.

I stamped the image with Versa Mark embossing ink and used black embossing powder to heat emboss the image.  Using only three colors of Prismacolor pencils ( black , crimson red, and light umber ), and Gamsol with Tortillons I colored and blended out the colors to give shadows and highlights.  The sentiment is from an older Kraftin' Kimmie sentiment set, and to finish off the edges on the card front I used Tim Holtz's Black Soot Distress Ink Pad.
