Christmas Joy

Welcome OCS Fans;

We can't win with the weather, if it isn't freezing cold, it is raining cats and dogs and then there is the never ending heat wave.  As we are currently in the midst of a heat wave, what better way of cool off than by creating Christmas cards in July.

Yes it is 5 months before Christmas, but it is a great time to start the stash that will be needed for when Christmas does arrive.

For today's card I have used Christmas Joy Snowy from High Hopes Stamps.  I usually don't do an inside for the card, but I did this time using the sentiment Sparkle & Cheer also from High Hopes Stamps.

Mooshie's Christmas Kiss

This week's card features the adorable Mooshie and Mudzie. 
Mooshie seems to have caught Mudzie by surprise under the mistletoe and has swooped in for a Christmas kiss! This stamp just makes me giggle and will be perfect to bring a smile to someone on my Christmas card giving list. 



After colouring Mooshie and Mudzie with alcohol markers and Prisma pencils I hand fussy cut them leaving a this white border. The mistletoe was stamped and cut from the Under the Mistletoe stamp and Stickles were added to the "berries" for a bit of bling. 
An oval die was cut to use as the background. Paper from Echo Park was perfect for this stamp as it kind of looks like mistletoe on the paper. The sentiment was stamped and cut to size and mounted on matching cardstock. 
Some sparkly ribbon and gumdrops finish off my card.

All Wrapped Up!

Hello OCS Fans!
It's the 3rd week of the "Christmas in July" theme over on the High Hopes and One Crazy Stamper Blogs. It sure has been fun making Christmas themed cards and the best part..... I have them to mail this Christmas! Can you say win, win!! This poor Snowman is having a struggle getting his gifts wrapped and I don't think those little birds are helping him at all LOL. Meet "All Wrapped Up" by High Hopes Stamps!
I coloured "All Wrapped Up" with my Copic Sketch markers and fussy cut the image out using my Brother Cut N Scan electronic machine. I decided house papers from the LDRS "Holly Jolly Holidays" 6x6 collection. I love the blue and red combo's and that present paper was perfect for my poor snowman! I paper pieced the presents for a fun look. I added some Liquid Appliqué and Stickles for a dimensional sparkly look.
On the decorated inside I added a scalloped border and the "Candy Cane and Mistletoe" Sentiment also from High Hopes.
Copics Used:
C00, C1, C7, C9, YR04, YR09
B21, B24, B26, BG05, BG07, BG09

Beary Good Friends

Hi there and I've got another card following One Crazy Stamper's Christmas in July theme.  
This fun bear and his penguin pal is P137 Beary Good Friends and I've paired it with the versatile HH002 HO HO HO sentiment.
After colouring the bear with Copics, I added some Copic Blender solution to a loopy cloth and dabbed it down to get a bit more texture to the fur and then finished colouring the remainder of the image.  Cobalt Blue embossing powder was used for the sentiment and some sparkly navy and silver paper for the stars.

Penguin Cheer

I have a lot of friends and family who love penguins so I can never have too many penguin cards on hand. Thankfully High Hopes stamps has lots to choose from! Penguin Earmuffs is perfect for one of the many Christmas cards I will need for the penguin lovers in my life. 
I also used two snowflakes from High Hopes to create my Embossed Ink Resist background for this CAS (clean and simple) card.



I have wanted to try an Embossed Ink Resist background for awhile now so this week I took the time to try it out. After stamping my snowflakes I added my embossing powder and melted them with my heat gun. Next I grabbed some distress inks and did some blending - boy did I get inky! but it was so much fun! 
Next, I coloured this adorable penguin with alcohol markers and hand fussy cut him leaving a thin white edge. It is very hard to see in the picture but his ear muffs are coloured with sparkle pen and are very sparkly in real life - so hard to capture that with a camera. The sentiment is a "verse" and for this one I masked off the sentiment to only show the lines I wanted. It is great to be able to mask a stamp and get different uses out of it isn't it? 
Some matching sparkly gumdrops finish off my CAS card. 


Card Recipe 
High Hopes Rubber Stamps
Sentiment: Sparkle and Cheer - High Hopes Rubber Stamps
Patterned Paper: Embossed Ink Resist technique

Tuxedo Black Memento ink, Hammermill digital cover stock, Tumbled Glass, Salty Ocean distress inks, white embossing powder, classic circle die - Spellbinders, Fiskars circle cutter, Sheena Douglas sparkle pen, sparkly gumdrops - YNS

Spectrum Noir Markers: BG5 BG7 BG10 GB5 CT2 CT1 IG1 IG3 IG5

Christmas Gofer

Happy Tuesday OCS Fans!
I'm popping in today to share with you my Christmas in July card for High Hopes Rubber Stamps! The Design Team is sharing Christmas themed cards all month to inspire you! Today I am using the adorable "Christmas Gofer". I just love those chompers of his!! 
I coloured up this cutie using my Copic Sketch Markers and cut him out with a circle die. I decided to use papers from the Mod Scraps "Let It Snow" 6x6 collection. The whole collection is in the blues and it makes for a fun non traditional card. I added some liquid appliqué to his pom pom and made some snow drops falling around him. Once the appliqué dries you heat it with your heat gun and the drops puff up. I also added some Diamond Stickles to his scarf. The paper edges are all inked with Distress Oxide Ink in Faded Jeans. Some die cut snowflakes and ribbon finish off my card.
On my decorated inside I am using the High Hopes "Peace, Love, Joy" sentiment, and some layered papers cut with a stitched scallop border die.
Copics Used:
Gofer:  E53, E55, E57, E59/ nose E47, E49
Blues: B93, B95, B97
Ornaments: B93, B95, E51, E59
Holly: R39, R89, YG25
Snow: B0000, B000

Happy Stamping!

Crazy Birds

Hello and welcome back to the continuation of One Crazy Stamper's Christmas in July theme.  For this card, I chose to use the TT070 Singing Crazy Birds and HH003 We Wish You a Merry Christmas sentiment.  This image makes me chuckle, it's like we all have that 'one friend', that 'hanging upside down friend'.  For this week, I opted to go with pink which isn't a traditional Christmas colour but I like it.
