I had sooooo much fun doing today's card! It was one of those that felt easy.....Believe me, some of these cards just don't want to flow! I used the super cute Art Impressions Party Girls! The set comes with some great sentiments that are very versatile and can be used with soooo many different images! I also used Memento Black to stamp my image and copics to color. I had some scraps of some fun paper in my stash that I used with some larger 10mm brads!

Today I’ve chosen a Hero Arts “Floral Wreath” Stamp and embossing die set, which I notice that Lora does not have in stock right now. I stamped the image in Champagne VersaMark, embossed it with white EP, and fussy cut the center. I used a Stylus Blending Tool to blend Tim Holtz Distress Inks (Dried Marigold, Faded Jeans, Rusty Hinge and Shabby Shutter) onto the White cardstock, rubbing off the excess with a kleenex. I stamped the YNS sentiment stamp from Humming-Bird Beauty in black on pale blue cardstock and pop dotted the embossed image over top. The lace rectangle is a MS round the border punch and the Butterfly is a Memory Box die cut called Vivienne.
Hope you will enter the OCS challenge for the month of October which is Kraft, Black and Red.
Remember, Stamp up a Storm, Ink up a Wish and send it on to someone to brighten their day!

I am trying to get whatever summer colors I can before the fall and Christmas colors take over my stamp table! I used the super cute Rosabelle from Kraftin Kimmie. I used the star circle Nestabilities. I also used the Loopy Bloom and the open edge Dienamic from My Favorite Things. This is one of my all time favorite images because I absolutely LOVE coloring her!

It is a gorgeous sunny Sunday here, even though it is a bit cool, there is no doubt that Fall is definitely coming. For my post today for One Crazy Stamper, I have used a Marianne Design stamp called Snoesjes - Snoes with Dog.
As there are so many techniques and new products available; I have decided that at least once a month, possibly more that I will try a new technique or add something different to the cards.
For this card, I used a new cut, emboss and embroidery die that Lora has in stock at OCS; and am really quite pleased with how the it turned out. It is cut and embossed in the usual way using one of the thin metal adapter plates. The holes didn't need any extra pricking and I used red and green Sulky thread to embroider.
- Stamp: Snoesjes - Snoes with Dog (Marianne Designs)
- Ink: Tsukineko Memento Tuxedo Black
- Paper: X-Press It Blending Cardstock, DP - Street Lace (DCWV - from last year)
- Dies: Embroidery Border 2 #6002/1204 (Joy Crafts), Sulky Thread - Red and Green
- Spellbinders Nestabilities: Decorative Labels Eight
- Copic Markers: Dog: E30, E31, E47; Snoesjes - Skin - E0000, E000; Clothes and Boots - BG93, BG90, G12, G82 Miscellaneous - YG17, Y17, Y28, R46
- Atyou Spica Glitter Pens: 12 - Mint
- Miscellaneous: Pearlescent Chalks, Jewels - Weekend Market (BoBunny), Flun Flock - White

I love, love, love this high hopes dragon. I find myself reaching for him all the time. He is my go to little guy for guy cards. His name is Flame Broilin! Isn't that the cutest name! As always I used my memento tuxedo black ink. love, love this stuff. It is my go to black ink!
I also used some clearsnaps smooches paint to paint the glitter on his apron and hat. It adds just a little something extra. I had some wooden buttons in my stash and wanted to add something to the edges. I finished those off with some twine.

Hi all, Madge here for another Wonderful Wednesday for OCS. Today I’ve used a Whimsy Stamp called Dandelion Girl, available at OCS. We did this very effective stamping technique at our Stamper’s 10 group, courtesy of our very talented SU demo. It is a Quick, Easy and Effective way to use a variety of stamps. My format is for a 5 1/2” square card, but it can be adjusted for any size format.
Hope you will join in on the September Challenge at One Crazy Stamper. (Kraft, Black and Red).
Remember, stamp up a storm, ink up a wish and send it on to brighten someone’s day.

Did you know that OCS will be celebrating it’s 1st anniversary of opening the brick and mortar store?! Yep, Sept 8 and we will be celebrating here on the blog with LOTS of prizes!!!
So with OCS bday in mind, I made this card. Again I used Distress Inks…I really love these things. I have a pretty limited number of ink pads, about 8 but the depth of color that can be achieved from just one color is wonderful. My image is from CC Designs and papers are from My Mind’s Eye, a great combo right?
Don’t forget to join us back here at the OCS blog on 9.8 for a fun hop! And our Black, Red, Kraft challenge is going on until the end of the month.
Supplies: CC Design Stamp, Distress Ink, Watercolor paper, MME papers, Whimsy corner die, Magnolia edge die, twin, TH tiny attacher
