Bookmark Fit For A Queen

Happy Easter to all you crafty peeps out there! Being an avid reader, I have finally decided to make a bookmark for myself. The stamp I used is Queenie and Princess, but fussy cut out the queen and only used that portion. I glittered her crown and added glossy accents to accentuate the jewels. I recently picked up some fun brads from the OCS store that are glasses, I carefully made incisions on queens face and fitted her with the spectacles(Yup, this queen is a bookworm!). For my tassel I used a large vintage brass flower and added a large black bead to the center of it. I love it, and I hope you do too! 

And hey! There is still a wee bit of time to enter our "Anything Goes" challenge. 
Here is the back

Supplies Used
Queenie And Princess(Saturated Canary), Cogs Nestabilities(Spellbinders)
  Well Traveled Decorative Brads(Carta Bella), Black Glasses Brads(Eyelet Outlet)
Natural Lace Trim(Kaiser Craft Ribbon), Rhinestones-Lippy Red(Kaiser)
  Glossy Accents(Ranger)

Forgive Me Please!!!

Good morning this is a post I did on March 21 very late at night with a partly finished card..Oh hang on one sec let me explain...This week has been one from HELL!! I have been sick, I finished my Paleo Challenge, and had to pack for vacation...So as many of you know there is a ton of things you need to do...I started this card a few days ago and have been struggling with a layout and coloured the image six times and finally liked this one...The image is from The Wellington Collection along with the papers..The image was coloured of course with my Copics and shaded with Pencils..Memento Tuxedo Black was used to stamp the image.. I am not to sure what happened with this card but I lost my creative mojo..Lets hope I find it on Holidays!!! So once again this is a rough layout and when I return I will hopefully nail down this baby..All of thee products used can be found at One Crazy Stamper.. Thks for understanding and I hope I have not disappointed anyone...

Easter Wishes for my Hubby

Hello again, and Happy Friday!  Today's card that I made to show to you is an Easter card I made for my Hubby using Whimsy Stamps Fluffy Bunny by Meljens Stamps.
Here is a close up the cute Fluffy Bunny for you to see the Copic colours used. I coloured this image a little different that usual, instead of blending out the colours I decided to "dot" on all the colours to form texture on the bunny. What do you think? The picture does not really do the colours justice, it look soooo much prettier in real life....
COPIC COLOURS USED:  Browns: E47, E44, E43, E42, E41 -  Pinks: RV11, RV10, RV000 - Yellows: Y17, Y15, Y13, Y11
If you would like to see the inside ofmy card and further details, please pop on over to my blog to check it out.

Spring is a Day Away!!!!

Tomorrow is the first day of spring, so to celebrate the return of the nicer weather, and the glorious anticipation of flowers I made this bright, cheerful easel card.

This is Bella Sole Collecting Daisies from Whimsy Stamps artist Elizabeth Bell.  I have stamped the image on Copic Xpress It cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, then colored it with Copics.  The image was cut and matted with Spellbinders Label 14, and popped up on the card base that was cut with a Spellbinder Grand Label Four die.  The greenery was cut with both a Memory Box Leafy Branch die, and a Memory Box Madera Corner die, cut apart and layered.

The interior of the easel card features a Spellbinder Tag die with a birthday sentiment, and flowers punched out of yellow vellum.  All of the flower centers are made with the Viva Decor Dark Brown Pearl Pen.
There are still several days left to create a project to enter the challenge here at One Crazy Stamper - the theme is Anything Goes!!

You are my Anchor


Happy Monday!  I’m here today to show you my One Crazy Stamper DT post.  I’ve used some really great papers and paired them with this MFT stamp.  One of my favorite things about MFT stamps is the matching sentiments. I hate trying to find a sentiment to match my image and not having one available, so MFT makes it easy for me.

You still have plenty of time to join in the OCS monthly challenge and there is a great prize up for grabs this month!  The theme is “anything goes”, so what are you waiting for?!  Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek.

supplies: My Favorite Things stamp, Copics, Glitz papers, Spellbinders star die, Whimsy tab die, washi tape, TH tiny attacher, viva decor pen

Sending Hugs

Hey crafty peeps!  I hope everyone is having a super duper day, after all it is the weekend. I am looking forward to getting my hair did and catching up on some crafting. I'm also hoping to get one of the kids rooms painted, its on a long list of things to do.

And now here's my card, this was made with someone in mind who is going through a difficult time. I didn't use any copics here, but I did emboss the large sentiment. I finally had a chance to use some of my new spellbinders, so so pretty they are. I even added some stitching with regular thread I had kicking around. I used two of Whimsy's ticket die stamps(which I cant get enough of) and a prima flower I dug out of my stash.  Our "Anything Goes" challenge on the One Crazy Stamper Blog is off with a bang, don't forget to enter all your lovely creations for a chance to some High Hopes stamps!!!
Supplies Used
Mini Ticket Die(Whimsy), Rhinestones-Ice Blue(Kaiser Craft),

Another little Geek!

Welcome back to my Tuesday post here at One Crazy Stamper, and this week I am once again featuring a geek, but unlike the boy computer geek that I featured a couple of weeks ago, this time I have a geekie girl!

This sweet little study girl is "Geekin It" by Saturated Canary stamps, that I have colored only with the E family of Copics ( okay the glasses are colored with B0000, but that's the only non E color ). The glasses and the apple are coated with Judikins Diamond Glaze. All of the layers of mats of cardstock and designer paper are machine stitched, then inked with Vintage Photo Distress ink, and the ribbon and chalk board are from my stash.
There is still lots of time to enter to win a fabulous set of stamps from One Crazy Stamper, just by entering your Anything Goes project in this month's challenge.  Just click on the icon at the top of this blog to get all of the details.
