Super Hero Ellie

It's Super Hero Ellie, another new release from Your Next Stamp available at One Crazy Stamper!
I stamped her with Memento Tuxedo black ink unto Xpress It card stock. 
Then I colored my super hero with copics pictured below:

Then I cut her out and popped her up using foam tape
I added silver glitter to her belt and headband.
I also added a black and silver trim. I stamped the "...Super friend" sentiment and popped that up on the trim.

Wicked Sweet – YNS

Hi all, Madge here for another wonderful Wednesday at One Crazy Stamper.  I just can’t get enough of the sweet Hallowe’en images from Your Next Stamp P1010057at One Crazy Stamper!  They are just so darn cute!

I’ve chosen Wicked Sweet for today’s card.  I tore this card apart because it was photographing very dark – then I masked the image and sponged in the moon – it gave the gloomy papers just the right “pop”.  Since I am out at the lake, I didn’t have a “stash” to dive into to change anything.  

OK back to the card.  I stamped the image, colored it with copics……………assembled the card, then decided that it needed a big Yellow Harvest Moon……..  easier to do when the card is not assembled!!   Then I shaded the white with Concord Distress Ink.  The background paper is a brayered piece from 100 years ago…….. it fit in perfectly – the ribbon and brads are from my stash.  Be sure to join in on the fun and prizes at One Crazy Stamper – free stuff is flying out of the store!!

Hope you like my Sweet little “Wicked”…

Coffee in my Bathrobe... Heaven!

Except with my curly hair you will never catch me in curlers, ha! But check out cute Coffee Kiki La Rue:
My papers are Echo Park Victoria Gardens. I love hot pink and orange together! I think I've been trying to get in as many bright colored cards as possible before the more somber tones of fall. Although I do love a great fall palette also!
Here's a close up of the Copic coloring:
Although she looks popped up, she isn't. That is shading added with the V91 and V93. Sorry, sometimes I forget to add some of the final colors to my list. I added it after my adding my "halo" around her with the YR's. Those tones blended too much with her skin so I needed to add something to make her "pop".
I cut her out with my circle Nestie and backed with another scallop Nestie.  My sentiment is also from CC Designs. I don't see Amy R's Sassy Sentiments in the store at the moment but lots of other cute ones to choose from! Some final touches of Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Spiced Marmalade and some white gel pen faux stitching and I think we are done : )
Thanks for looking! Come back everyday to see all the amazing projects by my teamies!!

Baby Kiki Fairy

Dana here and I've got one of my all time favorite images to share with you today.  I found the artist Mo Manning almost as soon as I started making cards and quickly fell in love with her images. Now many of her most popular images are available in rubber. Case in point, check out Baby Kiki Fairy available through Stampavie:
Even though I've colored her many times before every time I try something new and push myself to improve in some small way. This time I tried to get more realistic baby skin tones and I did that by adding quite a bit of R30 (copics).  I also wanted to try to get the wings to look how I wanted without the use of Stickles. Here's a close up:
After stamping with Memento Ink I used these colors:

I did use a Sakura Stardust pen to add those sparkly bits around her wings and hat. I never noticed before that her lil' hat looks like a strawberry, so that's why I went with the reds. 
My patterned papers are from Bo' Bunny. I think the only other touches are my Spellbinders and some flat back pearls. My sentiment is from Amy R of CC Designs.  I don't see that particular set at the moment but LOTS of other cute ones to chose from!!
Thanks so much for looking and I hope you have joined our sketch challenge this month : )

Halloween Greetings

Hi All!  This has been a fabulous month to be a One Crazy Stamper follower!!!  I have you seen all of the blog candy????  It is a blog candy bonanza!  Make sure you join in on all of the fun to get your share of the goodies!

OK so for my project I wanted to make clean and simple Halloween greetings. Clean and simple is not my strong suit and also one sheet cards are REALLY not my strong suit so I challenged myself to really try because I had this idea in my head since I saw these two stamps in the Your Next Stamp September release.

I used Spooky Hello and Spooktacular. 

 I used Versamark Ink to stamp the image and embossed with Black detail embossing powder.  For some reason no matter what I do to the paper (embossing buddy, fabric sheet) I can never get the image as crisp as I would like.....there is always stray powder!  Any suggestions?

After I heat embossed I used the copic air compressor and airbrushed around each image and then stamped the saying in the bottom.
I received this cool adhesive paper ribbon a long time ago but never used it so I thought I would break it out and use it here to give it a little something!

Enjoy and make sure you have the deadlines for all the blog candy and their is still time to join in this months challenge HERE.

YNS Apple Pie Kid

Autumn is one of my favorite times of the year – the colors, the smells, the abundance of sweet, juicy, crisp Okanagan APPLES – mmmmmmm.  I’ve chosen a sweet little stamp set called Life is Great (aka: Apple Pie Girl) – from YNS available at One Crazy Stamper The image was stamped onto Xpress-It Blend cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Copic markers.
I chose to do a “pull tab” card, (measuring 5” x 5 1/2”) which is a fun card for such a fun little image.  The oven mitts, (and sentiment)are part of the stamp set and were stamped onto double sided paper.  To get the opposite mitt, I cut the mitts out then flipped them over. The dots, were a mistake – They are the hot glue / metal discs (I forget the name of them, but as soon as I put one down, I knew that there was no going back.
sThe Martha Stewart punched borders were sponged with Fired Brick, along with the oven mitts.  DP is from stash.  P1010025
Hope you enjoy my little “Apple Pie Girl” and will join in on the OCS Celebration challenge to win prizes galore!
