Totally Fintastic Sepia!!!

So for my last post this month here at One Crazy Stamper I've tried a new technique - using just two colors of Prismacolor pencils to create an all Sepia colored image on Kraft cardstock! I first saw the technique on a Designed to Color showcase here, and since I love the sepia look I had to give it a try.
For my first attempt at this technique I think it turned out okay, maybe a little bit darker then I would really like, but practice makes perfect. The image is "Bella" from Whimsy Stamps, that I stamped on kraft cardstock with Versafine Onyx Black ink. I then used Prismacolor PC938 White and PC 948 Sepia to color the highlights and shadows, and blended the colors together with Gamsol and two blending stumps. The dp is Bo Bunny's Key Lime Making Waves.

Lora, Happy Birthday and have a great day on Tuesday.

Thinking of You

Hi Everyone;

For today's post for One Crazy Stamper, I did a card using the a Susan's Garden die called Mini Lily die by Sissix.  This is a follow up to the tutorial I did last week.

I stitched two card layers and put the one on the inside of the card.  I then trimmed a bit of f the card front
so that the stitching could be seen.   To make the decorative edge, I used a Martha Stewart Arch Lattice edge punch.  I made the lilies the same way as I did in last week's Card Layers and Susan's Garden Tutorial.  Butterfly peel off stickers were added and coloured with Sakura Gellyroll Stardust pens.  Finally I added the "Thinking of You" which is also a peel off sticker.

 Supplies used:  
There are still a couple of days left to enter this month's Kraft Challenge, and then on Thursday One Crazy Stamper will have a new challenge.

Pretty as a Picture!

Good Morning.  It is "Wonderful Wednesday" once again at One Crazy Stamper.  Since we visited last week things have cooled down and I am enjoying life a lot more. 

Today's card uses an older but new to me stamp from the My Favorite Things "Pure Innocence" line.  There are many to choose from in this line and she is perfect to paper piece like I did.  Her dress, boots and the picture frame are all paper pieced.

A close up of the image:

Copics Used: Skin ~ E00, E02, E11, R20; Hair ~ E35, Y21, YR23; Ground ~ E31, E33, E35, E37; Sky ~ B000, 0

Gardening Friends

Welcome to Terrific Tuesday here at One Crazy Stamper, and another card from me using the theme for this month's challenge of "KRAFT".  When I first heard what the theme for this months challenge would be, I was stumped as I very rarely use kraft colored cardstock, but that's what a challenge is about right - it's to challenge us to create with something we don't usually use,'s my card!
I really went with the kraft theme by using the kraft cardstock as my base, and then stamping the image with Versamark ink and embossing it all with a dark brown embossing powder.  I even had to mask the image to extend the flower border across the entire width of the card.  Once the embossed image had cooled, I used my Copic Sketch Markers to color in the details ( sorry about the glare on the photo ).  The sentiment and ribbon are from my stash, and the image is "Garden Assistant" from Penny Black!!!
There is still a week left to enter the challenge to win a great prize package of High Hopes stamps from One Crazy Stamper, so get busy and create!!!

Card Layers and Susan's Garden Tutorial

Hi All;

For today's post for One Crazy Stamper I have a tutorial using the Doodey Luxury Stitching Card Layers and the following Sissix Thinlit Dies Flowering Quince, Mini Daisy, Mini Lily and Garden Leaves which are part of the Susan's Garden Collection.

Grab yourself a cup of coffee or tea and get comfy, as this tutorial will take a little bit of time.  The picture below are the finished cards.  Going from left to right the Dies are the Mini Daisy, Flowering Quince and Mini Lily.

I started by stitching the Luxury Cardlayers first.  Going from left to right they are:  Small Argyle, Flower Circle 1 and the Big Small Argyle.

Sulky thread was used for the stitching and these are the stitches that were used:

Golden Rod (1024) was used on all three card layers, while Pink (1121) was used on the Small Argyle, Tangerine (1078) was used on the Big Small Argyle and Lemon Yellow (1067) was used on the Flower Circle 1.

Here are the stitched card layers:

 Now we really come to the fun part and that is creating the flowers using the Susan`s Garden selection of dies from Sissix.  These are designed by Susan Tierney-Cockburn.  From left to right they are the Flowering Quince, Mini Daisy and Mini Lily.  Below these are the Garden Leaves.

 These are the tools that are used to create these flowers.

Flower making tool kit includes: Leaf Tool 1mm/2mm, Stylus 5mm/8mm, Loop Tool 3mm/5mm, pair of fine-tip scissors with a protective cap, fine-point reverse
Flower Making Pads:  Molding pad, leaf pad and non-stick sheet.  These are also included in the above kit and can also be purchased separately
Susan`s Garden Flower Colouring Kit

Mini Daisy. 

This die set includes multiple daisy petals, leafs and the calyx, which forms the base of the flower.

1.  I cut the petals using white Mulberry Paper and green cardstock for the leafs and calyx.

2.  I then applied some Diarylide Yellow (panpastels) colour toward the stem end of the petals.  Each petal was then shaped using the loop tool, and pinched.

3.  The calyx was formed into a cup using a stylus.  Then each end of the petals was dipped lightly into glue and adhered to an arm of the calyx.

4.  A small dot of colour was applied to the center using a Yellow Viva Decor Pearl Pen, and then sprinkled some Spring Flower Soft instead of Woodland Scenics Pollen.

5.  The leafs were stemmed, veined and bent using the Leaf Tool and the leaf pad.  They were then tucked under the flower and adhered.

This is the finished flower, which was then adhered to the Flower Circle 1 card layer.

This is the finished card.

This die set includes multiple petals, stamen and calyx.

1.  The petals, and stamen were cut using Mulberry paper while green cardstock was used to cut the calyx.

2.  Permanent Red Tint (panpastel) was used to colour the petals while a yellow copic marker was used to  colour the stamen.

3.  Each petal was shaped, pinched and bent to add dimension.

4..  The calyx was formed into a cup, and each stem end of the petals was dipped into glue and set in place -- one on each arm of the calyx.

5.  The stamen was rolled and a small amount of glue was applied to one to secure.  Fan the stamen and dip lightly into glue and then sprinkle some Spring Flower Soft.

6.  A bit of glue was used to adhere the flowers to a branch of paper-covered wire.

7.  I cut some leaves using green cardstock from the Garden Leaves die set.

Finished flower

Flowers adhered to paper-covered wire

 This is the finished card.

Mini Lily

Leaves, petals, calyx and stamen are included in the die set.

1.   The leaves and calyx were cut from green cardstock, while the petals and stamen were cut from Mulberry Paper.

2.  The petals were coloured with Orange and Red Iron Oxide (panpastels), while the stamen was coloured with YR18 - Sanguine copic marker.

3.  The petals were then shaped, lined, pinched and bent to give dimension, while the calyx was formed into a cup.

4.  Each stem end of the petals were dipped in glue and adhered to the calyx, evenly spacing three petals.

5.  Three other petals were placed slightly closer to the center between each of the first three petals.  Flower was allowed to dry.

6.  The stamen was rolled and a small dab of glue was placed on the end to seal.

7.  A small amount of glue was applied to the fanned ends of the stamen with a toothpick and some Spring Flower Soft was added.  The base of the stamen was dipped into glue and adhered to the center of the flower.

8.  The leaves were lined with the the leaf tool by dragging two or three lines lengthwise down the leaf.  They were shaped slightly, then pinched and bent.  The leaves were tucked around the flower to finish.

9.  The flower was then attached to the Big Small Argyle card layer.

This is the finished card.

Other miscellaneous supplies used for the cards are Rhinestones, Cream Viva Decor Pearl Pen and the design paper is In the Garden from Whimsy Stamps.

Hope you have enjoyed this tutorial and here are some links for further instructions for this unique Garden set of Dies.
