Scrapbook Saturday and a Soccer Sports Page

Welcome OCS Fans;

Hi it's Bev here today ... for Saturday Scrapbook layout projects for One Crazy Stampers using High Hopes Stamps. If you have been visiting me on Saturdays you will see that I am only using stamped images as accents on pages. I try to theme them to photos which makes them a perfect accent. I am hoping I could inspire you to try using your stamps on layout pages too. 

This page is my 2nd eldest Grand Daughter playing soccer for the University team. She won Rookie of the Year. She is so talented and strong for her size.


Lots of great action shots on this page and the cute action Soccer Star stamp was a perfect accent.



Supplies used:
  • Stamp: Soccer Star TT036
  • Copic Markers 0. C0, C01, C03, C5, C8, Y11, Y13, Y15,, E00, E01, E55, E57, E59, W5, W7 
  • Other: Paper House theme print and stickers, Creative Embellishments, brads, EZ ink roller

Thinking of You!!!

Welcome OCS Fans;

Where does the time go.  It seems that Friday has come around and another week is almost over.

For today's card, I have used the adorable Thinking of You Stamp from High Hopes Stamps and created a CAS card.


After stamping the image on XPress It Blending Cardstock, I coloured it with Copic Markers.  I then used the Foilmate Vibrant Vines with the Sparkling Silver Foil (both from Gina K Designs)  and ran it through the MINC machine.  This is the positive side as opposed to the negative side which I used last week.  This was then cut out using the Spellbinders Scalloped Die.

Supplies used:

Hello Butterfly

I love butterflies! They are one of my favourite parts of spring and summer. 
I love to sit on my porch and watch them flutter around and land on the hanging baskets I always have hanging there. 
I have learned that there are different flower types that attract butterflies so I am going to see if I can find some baskets with some of those types of flowers for my porch this year.

I made a card to celebrate butterflies with "Left Butterfly" and "Katie's Bouquet"







I created my scene by stamping three bouquets and the butterfly and coloured them with alcohol markers. Star Dust Stickles were added to the hearts on the wings.  I added some clouds using a cloud die, ink and a dauber and cut the bottom edge with a stitched scallop die.  Some fun gingham and heart patterned paper were perfect for this scene. After cutting the heart paper to size I cut out the word hello with a die. I cut it a second time in white and inset it into the paper. Next, I found the word friend in the size I wanted, masked it off with Post It Notes and stamped it using my Misti. Matching glitter ribbon and enamel dots finish off my card.

Spring is here!

Welcome One Crazy Stamper Fans!

It’s Wednesday, and I’m back to share these adorable hedgehogs who are so excited to smell the beautiful spring blossoms growing on the trees. I used Hedgies Spring Loaded (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) to create the scene. I added a little bit more to the tree off to the side.


I thought it would be fun to try colouring this stamp using various watercolour mediums and brushes.

I started off by stamping the image onto Arches Watercolour Paper, 140 lb. Cold Press.

Then I used a mixture of Spectrum Noir Aqua Markers, Tim Holtz Distress Inks, Derwent Watercolour pencils and a paint palette.

I created the clouds by using a cotton ball and soaked into a little bit of water and then tapping it onto the paper to lift some of the watercolour. Finally, I used Pigma Micron 02 Archival Ink Pen to outline the flowers and the Hedge Hogs. For the noses, I used a Sakura Glaze - Black pen.

Supplies Used:

Spectrum Noir Aqua Markers: Chocolate, Sepia, TerraCotta

Derwent Watercolour Pencils: Brown Ochre 57, Raw Sienna 58, Copper Beach 61, Vandyke Brown 55

Inks: Tim Holtz Distress Inks - Ground Espresso, Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Brushed Corduroy, Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Gathered Twigs, Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Picked Raspberry, Krafty Kolours - Totally Taupe Mini Ink Cube

Ai Watercolor Essentials Palette

Background Paper: Recollections - Petite Floral - Double Sided 12 x 12 in (30.4 x 30.4 cm)

MISTI - Most Incredible Stamping Tool

Brushes: Talkon H.I. Series - 970 White - #4, Legacy - Folk Art 1837 Perfect Liner #1, Bette Byrd "Aqua-Sable" 1600 Filbert 1\4

Ribbon: Ribbon Trends - Organdy Ribbon 029 White

Hope you like it and have a fantastic week!

Sending Smiles!

Hello OCS Fans!
It's my turn to share some creative fun over on the  One Crazy Stamper Blog! I decided to use this oldie but cutie called "Raggedy Ann-ouncement". I love that her "sign" comes blank and you can add whatever sentiment to it that you want. I added the HH "Sending Smiles" sentiment.
I used a fun bright colour palette on this card! It just makes me feel happy and that summer is around the corner. My Paper is from the American Crafts Sunny 6x6 collection (older one from my stash). I added a double heart border, a cute heart tag, heart die and ribbon with a butterfly brad added to it.
Here you can see the dimension I added by using foam squares.
My decorated inside using the HH Sentiment called "Thank You For Being A Friend"
Copics Used:
Skin: E01, E21, E11, R20
Hair & Shoes: N5, N9
Dress & Bow: RV14, RV17, RV19
Wood Sign: E42, E43, E44, E47

Basket of Love

Today is my turn to share some inspiration on the One Crazy Stamper blog and I've decided it's time to finally celebrate the arrival of spring.  I know it's here (hopefully) because the cherry tree is blooming and perennials are popping up everywhere.
I was trying for something different this week and was aiming for big white paint splats but it just didn't work because the kraft paper seemed to be very absorbent and it soaked the ink right up until it almost disappeared. Time to pull out the Frantage!  I love using that embossing powder and although it's not the look I was aiming for, I am happy with the effect.
The next step was to stamp the LL014 Spirits a Lift sentiment and lightly sprinkle Frantage on the surface.  When I use Frantage, I always apply it loose (no Versamark) and heat it from the bottom until it melts.  I stamped and cut out the T209 Basket of Love image and then cut another set of those funny little faces and a bow, then coloured everything.  Once I glued them down and the petals remained loose, it looks a little like the paper tole craft some of us used to dabble in.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!
Copics:
Basket - E29, E27, E25, E23, E21
Bow - Y28, Y26, Y23, Y21
Leaves - YG67, YG17, YG13, YG11
Flowers - RV99, RV95, RV93, RV91, RV0000; E35, E33, E34, E30;Y26, Y23, Y21
Supplies:
Image - High Hopes T209 Basket of Love
Sentiment - High Hopes LL014 Spirits a Lift
Misc:
Stickles, brads, Frantage

Rolling into Recovery

Happy Sunday!

It's Heather here, back with some more High Hopes Rubber Stamps inspiration.

Did you catch the Get Well Soon new release a few weeks back? So many fantastic new images and sentiments, like this cutie, Injured Bear. Poor Bear, I think he's had a bad week!



I ended up with fewer embellishments on this card. I didn't want to cover up my quilted background! This one in my "to use one day" stash was the perfect color to match my bear's outfit. These backgrounds are fun to make and are a great way to use up paper scraps. Then, just add your image and sentiment and you have a beautiful card!

The sentiment is a new release as well. It's called Speedy Recovery

Check back here, the One Crazy Stamper blog, every day for some brand new inspiration from the Design Team.

I hope you have a wonderful Sunday!

Live Life

This week I decided to  challenge myself. I wanted to use a "portion" of a larger stamp by masking it to "create" a new image. Masking a portion of a larger stamp gives me more ways to use a stamp I have purchased. 

I chose "Fragrant Blooms" from High Hopes Rubber Stamps and masked off this cute snail and flowers. 




After masking off the stamp and stamping only the portion I wanted to use, I coloured it with alcohol markers and Prismacolor pencils and cut it out using a circle die. Next I cut a piece of white card stock to fit my card and added some ink splatters with matching ink to create a bit of a back ground. This was added to some gingham paper from MFT after I inked all of the edges with Distress ink. 
I placed my stamp roughly where I wanted it on the card and with the help of my Misti stamped the sentiment. Some twine and sparkly enamel dots finish off my card. 

Card Recipe 
Stamp: Fragrant Blooms - High Hopes Rubber Stamps
Sentiment: Life In Bloom - High Hopes Rubber Stamps
Patterned Paper: Gingham Galore - MFT

Tuxedo Black Memento ink, circle die - Spellbinders, twine, enamel dots - C.C. Designs and Gina Marie Designs, antique linen Distress ink, Stampin' Up ink, mini ink splatter - YNS, flowers - Poppies and Prairie

Spectrum Noir Markers: CT1 CT2 GB5 AG1 AG3 AG4 CR11 CR7 PP1 PP3 BG7 TN1 EB1
Copics: RV11 
Prismacolor Pencils: goldenrod, dark green, henna, deco peach, beige
