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

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!

'Twas the Night Before Christmas!

Welcome OCS Fans;

As we are halfway through the year, now is the time to get a start on Christmas cards.  The Design Teams Divas on the High Hopes and One Crazy Stamper Blogs will be sharing "Christmas in July" inspiration to you all month!

For my first Christmas card, I used this cute stamp called Here Comes Santa from High Hopes Stamps.  It is a CAS card as the design paper was a perfect match for it.  The paper is from  Echo Park's 'Twas the Night Before Christmas which was released last year, which I thought matched perfectly.  It is also my favourite Christmas poem.

I coloured the image with  copic markers and used some Prismacolor pencils to add some shading.
The image was fuzzy cut and three light bulbs were added as embellishments.  Nuvo's Snow Glow Sparkle Dust was used to add some glitter to Santa.  The Sparkle & Cheer sentiment was added to the inside of the card.

Santa's Helper

It's Christmas in July on the High Hopes and One Crazy Stamper blogs! 

My first Christmas card for this month features "Off To The Dump". Different right?! but when I saw this stamp I knew I wanted to use it for a Christmas card. 
Near the town I live in, we have a gentleman who attends as many of the local, small town Santa Claus parades as he can. He goes to the parade in his dump truck because at each parade he fills the back with food and gift donations. People know he will be there and are extremely generous with their donations. 
This kind, big hearted man and his dump truck  have inspired my card for this week -  he truly is Santa's Helper. 



I stamped my dump truck and then stamped it again on a post it note and cut it out to mask the truck off. Next I grabbed my presents stamp and did the same thing so I could fill the back of the truck, coloured it with alcohol markers and then hand fussy cut it. 
 Gold and silver Wink of Stella was added to the bows and some of the wrapping paper - I like a little bit of bling on my Christmas cards.  I added it to some snow banks I cut using an edge die and some fun Christmasy paper from Echo Park. A few die cut trees, matching ribbon and enamel dots finish off my card. 

Card Recipe 
Stamp: Off To The DumpPresents - High Hopes Rubber Stamps
Sentiment - Computer
Patterned Paper: Echo Park
Tuxedo Black Memento ink, Misti, Silver and gold Wink of Stella, Recollections ribbon, fresh pine trees die - Memory Box, My Creative Time dies, Enamel dots - Simple Stories
