Cottage Mouse

Hi all, Madge here once again wishing everyone a wonderful Wednesday. We are back at the lake to relax and get away from it all once again.  Not having my usual unlimited crafting supplies at my fingertips, narrows down my options, but here is what I came up with………  I’ve created a card using “Cottage Mouse” by Stampavie, from Lora’s wonderful store, One Crazy Stamper.   

If you are hooked on Copic markers , have you tried the Xpress-It-Blending-Cardstock??  It is fantabulous for blending!!  It pains me to use anything else…… the colors seem to be so much more vibrant!

Cottage Mouse was stamped on X-Press It with Tuxedo Black Memento ink, colored with Copic markers, trimmed and sponged with Tim Holtz “Broken China" distress ink. SU’s Cherry Cobbler was used for the matting, followed by a S-E-I DP punched with a Martha Stewart Around the Edge set (Vintage Floral), and then P1120299matted onto more SU Cherry Cobbler.  I started out with a 5 1/2” x 11” piece of SU’s Blush Blossom but the contrast between the BB and CC were too orange, so out came Copic Marker RV10 to bring it to a pinkish shade to blend with the SEI DP………..phew!! 

OOps, I forgot to add that I stamped the wee little mouse a second time, colored her and then cut her out to pop it up off the main image.  For co-ordinating flowers, I chose pale yellow roses and brushed the edges with YR21 and added pale pink roses to tie them altogether.  I also finished the inside with the reverse punched papers.  Hope you like my creation. 

P1120315 Tomorrow, there will be a wonderful creation by our newest teamie, Patricia – who is uber- talented…………….so until next time.

Your Next Stamp - Runaway Cake

This little guy stealing the cake just cracks me up!! Take a look:
That's Runaway Cake by Your Next Stamp. Too cute! I wish you could see how cool those candles and chipboard pieces cut from sizzlet dies turned out! Here's a close up:
Eh.. still looks better in person! The sparkle things were cut with a old sizzlet die I don't think they even make anymore out of plain white chipboard and then spritzed with Bahama Blue Fireworks spray. Forget about all the other colored mists you've tried! This stuff is intense!! I love it! You could also use them with the new glimmer screens that Lora is carrying!
Back to our little rascally rat ; ) He was stamped with Memento Ink, a must have for all of your copic work!  I colored him and the candles with my copics,  then I added some stickles.  And I just have to mention an overlooked product, adhesive!! If you've not tried the X-Press It tape you need to! I love this stuff! It's strong, economical and earth friendly (not all those plastic parts to throw away)!
That's all for today but don't forget you still have a few days to get in our Colors of the Rainbow challenge!

One Crazy Stamper Card Duo

Today I'm sharing some cards made entirely with Bo Bunny's Timepiece Collection.  I am in need of some masculine cards...and this paper pack immediately came to mind. 

I combined some vintage buttons and vintage seam binding with some faux stitching for my embellishments.

The Greetings Farm - Monday

Nope, you read right. Monday is the name of the stamp and you can pick her up here.  I didn't quite get all of  the colors of the rainbow in my card but it sure is bright : )
I began by first stamping on X-Press It Blending card with Memento Ink in Tuxedo Black.  Monday was then colored with Copics.  My papers are by Bo' Bunny. While I'm not sure if this particular paper pack is available you not be lacking for choices!! Check out these great paper packs!!!  The link at the lower left of the page will take you to the 6x6, 8x8 and 12x12 paper packs. (Love them!!)
The sentiment is from a set by Amy R of CC Designs.
How easy to add a few "buttons" punched with a 3/4" circle punch from my papers and added some black dots with my sharpie.
There's still time for you to join our Rainbow challenge this month!

Today, I’m using “Rock Chick” from the Kenny K glam series.  It was fun toP1120282 work with and really out of the box for me.  I really love these images!  Hope you enjoy my U Roc! card.

I stamped the image using copic Xpress c/s and Memento ink, colored her, and then cut out and mounted onto a labels 14 with dimensionals. The guitar was covered with glossy accents.

Materials:  Xpress Blend it C/S; copics Tuxedo Black Memento ink;  Spellbinders Labels 14; Floral Fantasy Embossing Folder; Sakura Stardust pen,MS border punch; papers from stash; Bo Bunny designer paper, Mauve glitter paper, SU cardstock, glossy accents. and flower from stash.
