Willow with Flower Basket

Hi, Madge here.  Today I’ve chosen to use a Whiff Of Joy stamp called Willow with P1120191Flower Basket.  I love the simplicity, yet beauty of these stamps – and Lora, at ONE CRAZY STAMPER, has such a wonderful selection and fantastic prices to go with them.
My friend Wendy, (thank you Wendy!) sent me this double-sided card Creatable – I chose to use copics to match the paper. I’m sorry, I did this card a week ago and have misplaced the list. 
I used the following:  Xpress-It Blending cardstock, Memento, Tuxedo Black ink, Copic Sketch Markers, Pearls , SU Lacey Border Punch, and miscellaneous cardstock and ribbon from stash.
This is the last week to take part in the April “Flower” Challenge for the chance to win a very nice gift certificate to One Crazy Stamper.  Someone will win, and it may as well be YOU.  Can’t wait to see what you create!!

Sarah Kay - Rose's Garden

This is your last week to enter our challenge for the month and your last week to have the chance to win a $25 gift certificate to One Crazy Stamper. Our theme for the whole month has been Flowers. My final card for the month is Rose's Garden by Sarah Kay for Stampavie.

I just love these Sarah Kay images. Because the stamp is pretty intricate I kept the rest of the card fairly simple. Rose was stamped with Memento Ink in Tuxedo Black and then colored with Copic markers. Here's a close up and my list of markers:

I used the flowers Lora carries here and then just added generic white buttons that I airbrushed with my copic R37. The shapes were cut with a Spellbinders Nestabilitie Die.
Thanks for taking a look and I hope you'll head over to join our challenge!

Be Joyful!

I've not had time to do this image from Flourishes' Beauty Within set up with glitter and acetate yet. It was worth the wait!

I stamped the image with Stazon ink on acetate. On the reverse side of the image, I colored the acetate with the Copic Markers shown below.

Next I ran the image through the Xyron machine and covered the back with silver glitter. I used Spellbinders Labels Thirteen dies to frame my image.

Just a reminder....the One Crazy Stamper challenge this month is flowers! If you have time, join us for the fun! There is a generous gift certificate to One Crazy Stamper for a random participant. Good Luck!!

TGF-Fancy Anya

Hi all!

Today's card uses The Greeting Farm Fancy Anya.  I used my wonderful copics (of course!).  Also, I wanted to add a little tip for all you copic users!  For this card I did not have the right color ribbon to match what I was doing so I used my green copic (the chisel side not the brush) and I colored in my white ribbon to match my card.  Super easy and now any color ribbon you want is at your disposal!

Supplies:  Stamp-The Greeting Farm (Fancy Anya), Stickles, Rectangle Nestabilities

Joanie by Joni

Today I have a new stamp from Kraftin Kimmie called Joanie. The spelling is a bit different than I spell my name, but I had to have this stamp.
I stamped her with Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto Xpress It CS.
I used a baby blue spica pen for her eyeshadow.
I layered the focal image unto Reverse Wonky Rectangles.
Dp is Basic Grey June Bug.
 I added a bit of bling from my stash and there you have it.

I would love to be sitting at the beach right now.

I colored the bathing beauties with copics (see picture below). and layered the focal image on a Spellbinders  Labels 4 die. I airbrushed the background to look like sand and sky.

Windows to the World

Hi all,  Madge here.  I’m late posting today because I had a sticky situation with glue.  First it wouldn’t dry – and then I knocked my finished card smack dab in the middle of it – face down!  Do you ever feel like it is just not your day??  It wasn’t my night.  I finally packed it in and started all over again this morning. P1120164 copy

This stamp is from a Flourishes stamp set called “Windows to the World”.  April is “flower” month at One Crazy Stamper – so I thought “flower soft” would fit in quite nicely.

I chose to do a gate-fold card to keep the image in the focal point.P1120165 copy


The beauty of polymer stamps is the storage, seeing where your image is going to be stamped……….and flexibility!!!  The “Wish you were here!” is in a straight line.  I thought curving it to match theP1120166 copy arch of the window would fit into the design better…….  and yes, it did. 

List of supplies used:

Copics, Designer Paper, Xpress-It cardstock (especially for copics) Spellbinders Large Labels die, Flower Soft, Memento Ink, misc cardstock and distress inks.  All available at One Crazy Stamper with prices that cannot be beat. 

I hope you’ve entered the April OCS challenge for a chance to win $$$.  Can’t wait to see what you enter.

Bernadette Admiring The Spring Flowers it was pretty warm here...unseasonably so...and with it we had some wicked weather. Thankfully all is well...and we're all happy to wait more patiently for the warmer temps...preferably without the *weather!* I chose to use this happy Stampavie image today called Bernadette Admiring the Spring Flowers. I stamped her with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then colored her with the Copics in the photo below. The designer papers I used were from the Tickled Pink 6x6 collection from My Mind's Eye. I used Spellbinders Labels Four dies and Fleur De Lis Accents for my card. The sentiment is by Hero Arts, flowers by Prima. We hope you can join us this month for our Flowery challenge! There is a generous gift certificate on the line for one lucky participant! May it be YOU! Good luck!!
