Wings of Hope

Hi all, Madge here for another Wonderful Wednesday at OCS.  I’ve chosen to make a Circular Stair-Step card today using P1010660 copy“Wings of Hope” from the wonderful Chrissie Armstrong designs for Whimsy Stamps .   I thought I would make the last of the summer-ie cards.  Remember those days of our youth when the Carousel Ride was the only one we could go on.  I do, being the shortest person in our family and the youngest and shortest of all my friends – I was soooo happy when I could graduate to the Ferris Wheel and the Octopus.  Ok, I’m really dating myself.

Materials used:  Wings of Hope;  Xpress it blend cardstock; Ranger Archival Black Ink/ Copic Markers; Spellbinders die, Circle Cutter (6 “ and 5 3/4” circle). Flowers; Paper from stash; Crackle Glossy Accents.

This will be my last post for August – so until next week. Stamp up a storm, ink up a wish and send it on to someone to brighten their day.

Good Company!

I have a very Victorian feel card for you today for you today for One Crazy Stamper.

I used some beautiful dies for today's card on some tan cardstock.    The edge die is Lace Light Deco Border from Cheery Lynn Designs.  The oval is the Lacey Oval CR1204 from Mariann Design.

For a fun touch I threaded some pink/white bakers twine through circular holes on the oval die.  A simple tip for you....use a dab of glue to twist the *needle end* of your thread...and it is simple to sew through the holes with  no fraying tip!

Papers are from Authentique's Lively collection.  I colored the image from Flourishes set From The Desk Of with Prismacolor Pencils.

Fairy Tale Bug

Hi All,

Oh wow is it super busy!  School starts on Monday for me and textbooks are NO joke!  Plus I have been redoing my stamp room/office/study area and I have ikea boxes all over my house!  Hopefully it will look how I am picturing in my head!  I am realizing how much craft stuff I do have though!

I used fairy tale bug on my card today because school is definitely on my mind.  I wanted to color him different and used all kinds of colors on him.  Of course I used my copics.

I kept it really simple with some twine!

Sun Kissed

Hi all, Madge here for another wonderful Wednesday at OCS.  We still have a “Bingo” or TIC TAC TOE P1010633 copychallenge for a chance to win a great prize at OCS. 

I promised to show more pockets and pages from my A Ladies Diary mini album, however I have a Summery card to share using a Whimsy Stamp called “Sun Kissed”.  I absolutely love these images by Elisabeth Bell – they are so pretty.  With this image, I watercolored a background of hills – because I thought of the song “The Hills are Alive” from The Sound of Music, when I looked at the image.  The image was stamped with Ranger Archival Black ink onto Xpress It Blend cardstock and colored with copic markers

The DPS I used is from Echo Park, Flowers from OCS, punch is MS Round-the-page.

Til next week, Stamp up a storm, ink up a wish and send it on to someone to brighten their day.

Twinkling Stars!!!

Terrific Tuesday time again for One Crazy Stamper and I have the third of four cards that I have finished using the Kraftin' Kimmie stamps from the July release, and the ongoing theme for this month's bingo challenge! ( This uses the diagional line of pink & black, die cuts/punches and ribbon/twine ).
This is "Marilyn" and is available to purchase here.

The image is colored with Copics, fussy cut and popped up on the card front dp from My Mind's Eye. The stars were punched with Martha Stewart's Anywhere punch and the black ribbon border is a die from Marianne Designs. All of the stars received a coat of Icicle Stickles to make them twinkle!! ( and yes the same color of stickles were used on the white stars and the black stars on the sentiment ).

Fall Colored Chloe

Hi All,

Have you ever colored an image and absolutely LOVED how it turned out???  I did and look at her!  I love how the shading of her hair turned out!  I used Chloe by Elizabeth Bell for Whimsy Stamps.  I stamped her using memento black and colored her with my copics.  I used Blossom Nestabilities and cut her out and with the image still in the nestie I sponged some memento green ink around the edges to give it a little depth.  I paper pierced around the edges (HUGE tip is to adhere ALL of the top layers together--not the base--and paper pierce through there and then use pop dots so you don't squash your pokes)

Have a great week!

Hi all, Madge here for another Wonderful Wednesday at OCS.  Have you played Bingo with us yet for a chance for a great prize from OCS??  If not, head on over and give it a whirl.P1010550

I have another picture to share today of our daughter and her Dad in a friendly game of Backgammon.  You can see why we didn’t really want to leave.

Ok, on with “A Ladies Diary”!  I am still working on the cover, but here is another insert in the mini album.  AND, it happens to fall into a BINGO line.  Pink & Black; Die cut / Punch; Ribbon / Twine.

There are two hidden pockets on the right side.  The far right one opens to display another lady and a photo collage,  the center right pulls up for a fold out of pictures and journaling.  (Sorry – can’t show you for real).


Next week I promise – I will be able to show off more of the hidden pockets.    Til next Wed.  “Stamp up a Storm, ink up a wish and send it on to someone to brighten their day”.

Classy and Fabulous!!!

Terrific Tuesday is here again, and I have another fabulous card to show you today that uses the challenge Bingo theme.  This card has the colors Pink/Black, Flowers, and Swirls - all from the first vertical line of the Bingo.

"Katherine" from Kraftin' Kimmie was stamped with Tsukineko Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Copic Xpress It cardstock, then colored with Copics.  After fussy cutting her, I popped her up on the card front featuring the sentiment included with the image, stamped on silver matte foil paper with Tsukeniko Staz On Jet Black ink.  The sentiment was framed with a Marianne Designs die cut from black suede paper, and highlighted with Viva Decor Anthracite pearls.  The swirls were cut with either Memory Box's Elegant Scrollwork or Cheery Lynn's Mega Flourish Two.  The flowers were from my stash.
 Have a wonderful day, and don't forget to enter the Bingo challenge this month!!

Hi All,

I used the super cute Party Girls from Art Impressions.  Usually I am overwhelmed with larger images because I always have trouble getting nice, clean, crisp impressions.  Boy was this a no brainer!  A perfect impression the FIRST time!  Plus these girls are super fun to color!  I love using copics and this was a fun image.

A Ladies Diary – Continued Series mini book

Still on vacation and even though we were going to be home after a week we decided to stay!  I think it’s safe to say, we are enjoying the Pacific Ocean immensely! P1010559 This picture was taken with a full moon.. .. .. Then there is the daytime with a beach to enjoy to the fullest.  We are at Boundary Bay in Tswassen, and in the backbround is the elusive Mt. Baker, WA across the bay.  I say elusive, because it is very shy – not always wanting to share it’s beauty.P1010570

OK, to get on to my post today…….  I was so happy that Lora at One Crazy Stamper added Graphics 45, “A Ladies Diary” to her inventory.  I am such a Shabby Chic / Vintage lover……and this paper is to die for!  P1010497I have put together a paper bag book for a very, very special lady – she is not a Vintage lover, but I’m hoping that this will sway her a bit.  It is a surprise – so, don’t say anything…….lol.  I have put a great deal of work into this mini album, and decided to share two pages of it at a time.  I LUV, LUV, LUV mini books and with “A Ladies Diary” I have made secret hiding places for journaling and notes. I’ve had a lot of fun thinking up little pockets for secrets.  Unfortunately, since I am not at home, where the book is making it impossible to take pics of how the tags and flaps unfold (). 

I have cut  pieces of the paper to add 3D elements to the pages along with flowers.  I apologize for the paper clips, but the pages would not remain open for photographing.

The two tags on the left side pull out; the tag on the right pulls up and the flap on the right opens up for a hidden pocket.  Don’t you just love the flowers and the clocks for the center folds??  I’ve also used glossy accents throughout this album which is shown on the flowers on the left side keeping a tiny envelope and note in place.

Hope this gives you some inspiration to use “A Ladies Diary” .  Remember, Stamp up a storm, ink up a wish and send it on to someone to brighten their day.
