Magic of Christmas

Welcome OCS fans;

From Santa and Rudolph, to Jack Frost and Frosty the Snowman, I have always found Christmas to have a magical air about it.  It also seems that it is the time that families and friends gather for some Christmas Cheer.

For today's Christmas Inspiration here at One Crazy Stamper, I have used Santa & Rudy.  After stamping the image, I coloured it with Copic Markers.  Nuvo Fresh Snowfall Glitter Accents was added to the trim on Santa's hat

Home For Christmas

One of my parents' favourite things about Christmas is to have their "kids" come home. My Mom is famous for having at least one of each of our favourite foods or snacks available at some point throughout the day. Now, add to that the grand children and let me tell you the variety of food and treats is crazy! but we all love being together. 
My card this week is based on this very thing - going/coming home for Christmas. 



The "pieces" for this card took some time to create. The stamps were coloured and fussy cut and then set aside. I paper pieced the hat and scarf on the "Momma" bird just for fun and added glitter drops to her hat.
Next, I cut out an oval and die cut quite a few branch pieces. I cut the branch pieces apart and laid them out on the oval die to from my nest. I trimmed the oval down to about a quarter of the size to form my base. Next I cut my tree branches and added a light touch of snow to them as well as a few of the branches on the nest. 
The sentiment was masked off with post it notes and stamped in stages. It took about 4 tries and a whole lot of patience to get it stamped the way I wanted it. Love my Misti is all I can say! 
Some ribbon and gumdrops finish off my card.

Christmas Joy!

Hi OCS Fans!
It's Christmas in July over on the High Hopes and One Crazy Stamper Blogs and I thought this adorable Snowman called "Christmas Joy Snowy"was perfect for this theme!
It's been fun to pull out my Christmas papers and these papers are from the Echo Park I Love Christmas 6x6 collection. I added the "Think Snow" sentiment which is perfect to remember on these hot summer days! I love the Stampendous Spoonful of Snow added under Snowy. You sprinkle it on and heat from underneath to melt it. It's just so pretty in person!
Here's the decorated inside with the HH sentiment called "Work of Art".
Copics Used:
N5, N6, N8, C1, B0000, B000
R35, R37, R39, YG63, YG67
Y23, Y26, YR07, YR09
E41, E42, E43

Happy Stamping!

Chef Pierre's Birthday Wishes

I am sneaking on to the OCS blog today to share a fun Birthday card I made for my neighbour. 
She does quite a bit of baking - often whatever she bakes she makes more then enough so she can bring us some - and she loves pigs. She is an amazing neighbour and is always there to lend a helping hand however she can. I saw the Chef Pierre stamp and just knew I had to colour it up for her Birthday card.



After stamping and colouring my image with alcohol markers and pencils, I had fussy cut it and ran a black marker around the edge. I found the perfect paper to use from Bo Bunny and My Favourite Things and cut my layers. The sentiment is stamped directly on to the patterned paper. I added some fun white dots to the oven mitts with a white gel pen just for fun! The stamp itself is popped up using foam pop dots and a ribbon bow and some gumdrops finish off my card. 

Card Recipe 
Stamp: Chef Pierre - High Hopes Rubber Stamps
Sentiment - Happy Birthday Script - High Hopes Rubber Stamps
Patterned Paper: Only You - Bo Bunny, Watercolour Wash - MFT
Tuxedo Black Memento ink, Misti, white gel pen, classic circle die - Spellbinders, gumdrops - YNS, ribbon from my stash

Spectrum Noir Markers: FS1 FS3 IG1 IG2 IG6 LG2 YG1 YG2 PV1 MG1 
Spectrum Noir Colourblend Pencils: 90, vivid pink, peach, smoke, pewter

My neighbour absolutely loved her card!

The first card is a CAS layout.  After the image was stamped, I coloured it with Copic Markers.


The second card, is a completely different layout. I ran the Holiday Magic Embossing Folder through my die cutting machine before adding silver foil using the GoPress Machine.  It was cut at an angle and a piece was added to the top and bottom.  The bottom half doesn't show up well in the photo.

Candy Cane Wishes

This sweet mouse seems to have her hands full with this extra large candy cane doesn't she?! 
My second post for the Christmas in July theme features "Merry Mouse". I think she is just adorable with her elf outfit and of course her candy cane.




This sweet mouse is coloured with alcohol markers and hand fussy cut. I set her aside and cut my paper layers, including the dotted oval background behind her. I added silver wink of stella to the bells on her outfit and Stickles to the pom pom on her hat. 
 Next, I masked off the part of the sentiment I wanted with post it notes and held my breath. It took a couple tries but I got the portion I wanted - I think it is perfect for this stamp. 
A simple bow and some glittered gumdrops finish off my card.

Card Recipe 
Stamp: Merry Mouse - High Hopes Rubber Stamps
Sentiment - Candy Cane and Mistletoe - High Hopes Rubber Stamps
Patterned Paper: Winter Playground - Bo Bunny 
Tuxedo Black Memento ink, Misti, Classic scallop oval die - Spellbinders, Silver Wink of Stella, Star Dust Stickles, dotted oval die - Sizzix, gumdrops - YNS

Welcome to my Wednesday post for One Crazy Stamper!  Today I am sharing a favorite stamp image from High Hopes Rubber Stamps entitled "Three Pane Santa".


The images were colored with Copic markers, and then Polar White Flower Soft was added to the trim of each hat.  The images were cut apart and placed on the card front which features paper from Teresa Collins Santa's List line, and a snowflake border die from Joy Crafts.  The sentiments are from C.

Moo-rry Christmas!

Hi OCS Fans!
It's Christmas in July over on the High Hopes and One Crazy Stamper Blogs! I decided to use "Charlie Christmas Tag" to create my card with today! I just love the way Charlie is peeking over the string of lights!
I used some paper from my stash and created a black card base to adhere my layers to. I coloured Charlie with my Copic markers and popped the image up with foam tape for more dimension. I added the HH Sentiment called "Moo-rry Christmas" to the middle of the tag using my MISTI.  I love adding Liquid Appliqué to the fur trim on his hat. When it dries and you use your heat gun it pops up for a fun element. A piece of ribbon, bow and some Spectrum Moir Glitter pen to the lights finished off my design.
Copics Used:
N1, N5, N6, N8
R00, R01, R02, R24, R27, R29
W0, W1, W3
YG23, YG25
B000

Hope you are all staying cool in this heat wave we've been having!
Happy Stamping!
