“Rock that Body” Missie

Hi all, Madge here for another Wonderful Wednesday at OCS. Can you believe Rock That Body frontit’s almost the end of June!!   I’ve chosen to use a stamp called “Missie”, a Kraftin’ Kimmie stamp available at OCS and made it into a Pop-Up Surprise card.  Here it is flat, folded and ready to mail.
When you pull the bottom tab, “Voila”, a hidden message that also allows the card to become free standing and the image and side DSP pops away from the card.

Who's the Winner and a Tutorial

Welcome to Terrific Tuesday at One Crazy Stamper, and as promised last week, the winner of the prize of the two Stampavie stamps as chosen by is ............
#7 - Wendance Designs
Congratulations, please contact me at so I can get your prize to you.

This week I have a tutorial about coloring skin with Copic markers. When I color with Copics I always start with the lightest color covering approximately 60% of the area, leaving the highlight area blank. Using the middle color I recolor about 40% of the already colored area, and then finish with the darkest shade on 10% of the same area.
After the three colors are applied, blend them all together using the lightest color.
The following diagram shows some of my favorite color combinations for skin tones.

I have listed the colors that I have used for each skin tone, but there are many others options - what is your favorite skin color combination? Do some experimenting with different color combinations and step outside of the box - you never know until you try, what wonderfully colorful results you can achieve!!!! Have fun playing!!!
( PS. Don't look too closely at my coloring on this page, as I knew that it was only to show you differnt skin tones, so I was not at all careful about going over the lines!!!!! )
Wishing you all a very happy day!!

High Hopes Garden

Hi All,

Well we had super hat weather last weekend where I live (over a hundred) and I was really getting worried about this weekend because I am participating in Relay for Life.  This is a 24 hour event that is put on by the American Cancer Society.  But thank goodness the weather is looking to be a beautiful 76!  That is PERFECT weather and I am excited to be out there for the event.  Of course with the hot weather I was able to stay cool in the A/C and craft.  I used the adorable High Hopes Garden of Life stamp set.  I love to color so this image is right up my alley!

Hope you enjoyed!  Have a wonderful week!

Beautiful Wings

Hi all, Madge here for a late post for OCS’s Wonderful Wednesday.  image0Camera battery was dead………..  and I must have had a blond senior moment when I suddenly realized, that yes, I do have a scanner!!  (duh!)

Today is a no stamping card, (except for the sentiment).  I’ve chosen to use an absolutely gorgeous die from Lora’s store, called Exotic Butterfly.  They are classified as “small”, but au contraire…….they are absolutely perfect.  AND, there are THREE (3) in the pack  - what a deal!! AND they are absolutely drop-dead gorgeous. So intricately beautiful together or all on their own.

Supplies used:  Exotic Butterfly (set of 3)Rhinestones; Misc. Cardstock; Sakura Stardust Pen; Brads; Spellbinders Ovals.  Simple, Quick and exotic!

“Remember, stamp (or cut) up a storm, ink up a wish and send it to someone to brighten their day”.

Dream...... and a Giveaway!!

Good morning everybody!!! As I post this it is in the early hours of the new day , and as usual I'm up late working on new projects, but most of all I had a wonderful evening coloring with some very special friends!!!
It's Terrific Tuesday time here at One Crazy Stamper, and my card features a sweet Stampavie image by Penny Johnson entitled "Sweet Dreams".
The image is stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa, then colored with Copics, with the light source being the candle. Dp is from My Mind's Eye Lost & Found - Sunshine collection, the doilies are inked with either Walnut Stain, or Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink, and the ribbon is from my stash. An Impression Obsession Clear Rubber Stamp set "Dare to Dream" provides the sentiment.
Before I joined the dt for One Crazy Stamper I was lucky enough to be a guest designer and I created this card -
The image "Storybook Friends" is also from Stampavie, and as a special little surprise, One Crazy Stamper has provided this image for me to give away this week. As an added bonus, I will also send the winner the stamp used to make this weeks card, so if you would like to win please leave a comment on my post today.  The winner will be announced on my post next Tuesday.

Summer's Sweetness

Today's post features Summer's Sweetness.  This adorable summer-y image is by High Hopes.
For the background I used the Copic Airbrush and the image is colored with Copic Markers. Love the look of the airbrush on the Nestabilities.  Designer Papers by Cloud9 Design and American Crafts Baby Collection.

And just because she's so is another take:
For this card I used a different color pallet and a touch of faux stitching to add some detailing.  Isn't it amazing what changing the colors does to an image?!
The butterflies are from Flitter~American Craft's Backyard Collection...I love them! The lower border punch is Fiskar's Threading Water Punch. Thanks for taking a peek!

Be sure to pop on by the store to see what's's always a good excuse to grab a cuppa and sit a bit!   Enjoy!

MFT Rainbow will come

Hi All,

I used a super cute stamp My Favorite Things--The Rainbow Will Come.  I love how much fun it was to paper piece!

I used copics and colored directly on the Kraft Paper.  Kraft does change the color a bit so I would recomend printing out a copic sheet on kraft as well as the white paper you use so you can get a true color match.

Have a great week!

Honey Days!!!!

Time for Terrific Tuesday here at One Crazy Stamper and this week I just could not resist coloring these two adorable images from CC Designs!!

This is Honey Bee-trice and Woodland Daisy colored with Copics in a most unusual color combination for a cute little bee. I stamped and colored Honey twice, so that one of the images could be fussy cut and popped up on the original image. The antennae and flower center have been flocked, wings have a coat of Smooch Top Coat Illuminate paint to make them shimmer, and the small flower centers and dots on the sentiment were highlighted with Stickles Fruit Punch. The dp is from Teresa Collins Sweet Afternoon collection, while the bakers twine and flower are from my stash. The white spots on her cheeks are done with Copics Opaque White paint.

You still have lots of time to enter for a chance to win a fabulous prize here at the One Crazy Stampers challenge blog, by following the monthly theme which is a Sketch. Check out the rest of the design teams wonderful creations, and make sure to stop by the One Crazy Stamper brick and mortar store or the online store here, to find all of the wonderful products featured here, plus much, much more!!!

Path of Life

Hi All;

It is a gorgeous, hot and humid Sunday here.  For today's post for One Crazy Stamper I definitely went outside of my comfort zone -- time to spread the wings.  No copic markers were used and the only stamp used was the Whimsy Ticket Notes Sentiments with the Ticket Die.  I even added DP to the inside of the card which I never do.
I put some of the Be Creative Tape on X-Press It Cardstock and cut the shape out using the Selena Butterfly.  I took off the top layer of the shape and used it to cut out the Maribelle Butterfly out, which I then put on the original cut out.  I added one colour at a time by removing the individual sections.

Here is the inside of the card.

Supplies used:
Do go out of your comfort zone and let us see what you create for this month's challenge.  You have until the end of the month to be creative for a chance to win a Heartfelt Creations stamp set.  Check out Lora's store One Crazy Stamper for some amazing deals.
