I absolutely love the Xpress it blending cardstock made especially for copics, the color doesn’t disappear, but remains bright and beautiful. I stamped my image using Tuxedo Black Memento ink, colored it with copics and then cut it into a rectangle, rounding the corners. I backed it with a die cut from Marianne Creatibles and backed that with a 6 x 6 Webster’s Page. I then fussie-cut two side panels from a Webster’s Page and mounted it over top of the matted image. The butterflies and pearls came from my stash. I then mounted it onto a 6” square card base.
Keeping in the theme of our July Challenge at One Crazy Stamper, I used two papers from Webster’s Pages, One image and three embellishments (butterflies and pearls). I hope you will join in on the fun at OCS challenge and post one of your creations for a chance to win OCS $$$.
While this is being posted, Art and I will be enjoying sun, salt water, and fireworks. See you next week!

Hi all, Madge here once again for Wonderful Wednesday. Today I chose a stamp from Your Next Stamp called “Pierre from France”. Brings back wonderful memories of our visit to France and of the baguettes and Brie cheese (unlike any Brie you have ever tasted, because the French don’t pasteurize their cheeses)(at least not the ones that aren’t exported). This set also comes with a little dog and an Eiffel Tower. To keep with the recipe challenge at One Crazy Stamper, I’ve added 3 embellishments, (well maybe a couple more than 3), 2 designer papers and 1 image (well, maybe 2).
I stamped Pierre with Tuxedo Black Memento ink onto Xpress It blend c/s, colored the image with copic markers, cut it out and mounted it onto SU Confetti Cream. I also used the Parisian Accents Spellbinders die, a MS border punch, and 3 dimensional accents by Joli. The Designer papers are Websters Pages.
We are all getting very excited about Lora (One Crazy Stamper) opening a brick and mortar store in September…….it means lots more stuff to choose from!! And a little birdie told us that perhaps Magnolia Stamps are going to be making a come-back. How exciting is that? In the meantime, join us in the Recipe card challenge for the month of July for a chance to win OCS $$$. Can’t wait to see what you come up with.

Ellie Loves Walking her Dog. I played around with a few different backgrounds and I finally decided I like this one the best. I first created my sky and grass using the technique you can view here. Originally I had the clouds in but I knew I really wanted the swirls to show up to simulate gusty fall winds. The swirls were achieved by misting a swirl background stamp with colorless blender.
Here's a close up:

Hi all! Here it is wonderful Wednesday once again. If you were here on Tuesday, wasn’t that a fantastic tutorial shown by Dana? That gal has so much talent! She’s a hard act to follow!
I’ve chosen to use a stamp from Your Next Stamp called “Anika from Holland”. My Mom was Flemish, and I remember her telling me of her father getting very angry with her for breaking her wooden shoes…….isn’t it funny what sticks in your mind? My Mom also had carrot red hair (natural), so I had some fun with this little image.
The challenge for the month of July is a recipe challenge which is 1 image, 2 designer papers and 3 embellishments for a chance to win a gift certificate at One Crazy Stamper….. however I mixed the recipe up a wee bit by using 1 image, 3 designer papers, and 2 embellishments………. I never have been one to use the same ingredients for a recipe. lol
I started out stamping Anika onto Xpress-It Blend Cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, coloured her with Copic Markers. I also added a little pattern to her dress with my Copic Multiliner. Spellbinders Oval dies were used to die cut the image and the mat. The Designer papers are from Bo Bunny, and the mats used are from SU. A Martha Stewart punch was used for the heart border. Two buttons were added from my stash, adding additional coloring added with a Sakura Stardust Glitter pen.

I started by covering a 8x10" piece of paper with a script stamp but you could use anything.
Staz-On because in subsequent processes I am going to use wet products and I wanted the script to stay crisp. The next product that is instrumental for this was Gel Multi Medium. I prefer the matte finish but that is definitely a personal choice. I painted that onto a chunky stamp and stamped randomly all over the paper:
Tim Holtz Distress Inks using the blending tool. I've used Dusty Concord, Broken China and Tumbled Glass.
gel medium to coat a regular paper doily (found in the cake decorating sections of most craft and grocey stores) front and back. Once dry (it dries very quickly) it is waterproof and you can use it over and over not only as a mask but also to turn it over after spraying with Fireworks and stamp with the excess spray:
Check out some of the new gorgeous shapes Lora is carrying from Spellbinders!! I added some simple outlining here and there with a white gel pen to really make the butterflies pop out.
I hope you will enter our recipe challenge this month. Make sure to check back in tomorrow to see what the marvelous Madge has in store for you : )
