February Tutorial ~ A Tri Fold Card

Good morning, crafty friends.  Today I have a quick but picture heavy tutorial on how to make my version of a tri fold card.  I tweaked it a lot to make it work for what I wanted it to do.  I have a confession to make ~ I had a video tutorial all filmed and was going to post it ~ but two things happened.  One, I kept filming my card off the screen so that you couldn't see what I was doing and second, I forgot how to upload my videos.  My camera is old and it has always been confusing as to what software supports it and I believe the original program is no longer on my computer.  So instead, there are a series of pictures for you to follow.  If you have any questions, feel free to leave a comment and your email and I will get back to you with an answer.

 The Tri Fold Card:

Card open:

Supplies Used:

Copics Used: BG11, BG13, BG15, E11, E13, E15, YG61, YG63, YG67, YR02, YR04, YR07

And now for the tutorial:

Step 1:  Begin with a piece of base card stock 6 1/2" x 11 3/4"

The reason for 11 3/4" is because I needed the center piece to be 5" across so that I could use my Punch Around the Page punch and have it even.  If you have a border die and would prefer to use that to make a fancy edge along the top, you may use a 12" piece of card stock. 

Step 2:   Score as shown in diagram.  At 3 1/4" and 8 1/4" and at 2 3/8" along longer edge.

Step 3:  Cut out rectangles formed by score lines, either by hand or with your trimmer.  Punch along upper edge with punch or die.  Round corners.  Fold on score lines.  This is your card base done.

Step 4:  Cut 3 outside layer pieces as per measurements shown.  If you use a 12" card stock you will need to cut the small piece 1/4" larger in both this step and the next.

Step 5:  Cut 4 inside layer pieces as per measurements shown.  If you use a 12" card stock you will need to cut the centre layer 1/4" larger.

And your card is ready to embellish any way you want.  Thanks for joining me for this tutorial today.  If I can every figure out the video, I promise I will add it to this post :)

Have a great day!  Until next time,

Hugs, Heather

Nerds Unite!!!!

Wow, where did the month of February go? It seems like only yesterday that the theme for February's One Crazy Stamper challenge was announced, and now you only have two days left to enter to win a fabulous prize by entering your Love themed project.

My card for today features "Computer Nerd" from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps January release. The image is colored with Copics to match the dp from My Mind's Eye Oliver collection, and the sentiment is included with the stamp. The glasses were highlighted by adding a stroke of Sakura's White Glaze pen, and then covering the entire lens area with Judikins Diamond Glaze. The metal embellishments are from my stash.
Don't forget that you only have a couple of days left to enter the challenge theme of Love, here at One Crazy Stamper!!!

Christmas card photos Scrapbook Page


Every year I try to scrapbook the photos I receive from Christmas cards. This is always a challenge because 1) I don’t do much traditional scrapbooking these days, I mostly digital scrapbook and 2) it’s kind tough putting so many pics on one layout.  Even though I don’t love the way it turned out, I love that I have it complete and it can go into our book!

I used some papers and wood buttons from the One Crazy Stamper store.

Thanks for taking a look!

Another week has gone by and Sunday is here again.  For today's OCS post, I have used this adorable pair called Elle and Elmer from High Hopes January Release.  Now I have done two new things.  The first, which I have never done before is paper pieced the umbrella using paper from the Lucy Cromwell Design Paper by Papermania.  The second which I have done on occassion, is to finish the inside of the card.

Supplies used:
There are still a few days left to enter this month's "Love" challenge, so get crafty and be creative.  March 1st will bring a brand new challenge.  While you are at it, have a coffee or tea and take your time checking out Lora's store OCS for the wonderful new products that are arriving.

In the meantime, have fun being creative.

Dandy As Candy

It's Saturday, and I've got a sweet card to share with you... I used Lola Lollipop from Kraftin Kimmie, Isn't she as sweet as can be? I coloured her with copics and used a prisma pencil for her blush, I then paper pieced her dress(from Authentiques Renew Collection) which was also touched up with copics. This card is full of die cutting madness, 8 in total! I used some glitter to jazz up the latchette die and also on several other areas. I finished it off with some rhinestones, ribbon and a beautiful button from the Lucile collection.

Have an awesome day, and get crafty because there is still time to enter One Crazy Stampers "Love" challenge!
Supplie Used

Shall We Dance

Terrific Tuesday time again here at One Crazy Stamper, and in keeping with this month's theme of Love, I have stamped and colored up this great image from Art Impressions.

This is one of the Bird Brains stamps called Dancing Birdie and Scratch, which I colored with Copics, fussy cut and then placed on the card front with an Action Wobble to make them dance, wiggle and jive!!! To create the card front, I randomly rubbed four different colors of distress inks (Aged Mahogany, Barn Door, Spiced Marmalade and Walnut Stain ) across a piece of watercolor paper, then spritzed with water to make the colors blend. After drying the resulting wash with my heat gun, I then stamped the Aged Mahogany ink pad on to my splat mat, then spritzed the color with water to make the ink form into drops. I then placed the original piece of blended colors over top of the droplets of color, to create the blotchy look. To complete the look I stamped the Whimsy Stamps Into the Farm image with Versamark ink, sprinkled with brown embossing powder, and used the heat gun again. The sentiment is from my stash. This would be a great card for an anniversay or special day to celebrate Love.

Love To Colour!

Good morning crafty peeps! Today I have a fun image who most of us can relate to, that is the ones who love their copics. Since I didn't have any pink or grey flowers, I used the same copics that were used for my image to colour the flowers to match the card. I also used one of my fav tools (Sew Easy) to stitch on the big hearts in pink thread and of course added some pink bling and pink lace.

Have a great day and get busy crafting up a creation for One Crazy Stampers "love" challenge. 
Supplies Used
Sketchie(Saturated Canary), Lace Trim-Blush(Bo Bunny), 
Rhinestones-Soft Pink(Kaiser Craft), Copic Markers(Copic)

Hearts and Hugs

There is only a couple of days left before Valentine's Day arrives, and I just couldn't resist coloring up this adorable Free Hugs image from Saturated Canary, and making it work as a card for the big day!!! So here's my card for One Crazy Stamper's challenge of Love.

After stamping the image on Copic Xpress It cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, I colored her with Copics. The image was cut with a Spellbinders die and then attached to the card front, which was also cut with a Spellbinder Grand die. Several heart shaped punchs are used to frame the image, and to compliment the inside of the card. The dp on the inside of the card is from Bo Bunny's Love Letters collection, and the sentiment is an oldie from my stash. A small piece of velcro tape holds the card closed.

This months challenge at One Crazy Stamper is Love, and we would love to see your fabulous creations!

I used this Memory Box Die-Chloe Stem as the main focal point on my card.  I LOVE this die as well as the My Favorite things butterfly die I used. As much as I love to color, sometimes I just love making a card without a colored image on it.  Especially when there are so many great dies out there!

Thanks for stopping by and taking a look!

Our Love Is Like A Battlefield

Good morning crafters, today I have a fun love themed card. I used Artemis from Kraftin Kimmie and found the perfect sentiments by Whimsy and just love their ticket dies too, which I spitzed with some Fireworks by Tsokeniko. I used a heart embossing folder and heart border die incorporated with a  scalloped edge die. I also added some twine and  a bit of lace of course because I'm a little obsessed with it lately. I distressed my blue cardstock just by running my nail along the edges and added black soot distress ink on the Love Letters Collection DP. 

 I hope you all enjoyed my creation! Have a great Saturday and get busy crafting up an entry for our OCS Love Challenge.
Supplies Used

Artemis(Kraftin Kimmie), Mini Ticket Die(Whimsy), Fun Life tickets(Whimsy),

Valentine Sucker

 For all of you procrastinators out there, you only have just over a week left until Valentine's Day is here. For today's Terrific Tuesday post at One Crazy Stamper I colored up the Valentines Petals image from Saturated Canary. but I didn't want to use the traditional colors of a valentine card.

Whenever I start to color an image, I always start by choosing my papers, so for this little cutie I choose First Editions Hideaway collection with these bright citrus colors. After the paper is picked, I can then match the Copics for a perfect combination. The sentiment, one of three that are included with the image, was stamped and mounted on a Spellbinder die frame, and the pearls were made with the Viva Decor Salmon Pearl pen.
