Tutorial Time!! Not A Christmas Card

Ok there are alot of pics and I hope that these instructions are clear..I love doing the 3D work but it takes time and patience...the image I used is called Dad's Catch its from the High Hopes Collection and can be found here as well as the Copics, Pencils, Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and the Lijm by Olba..ONE CRAZY STAMPER...
Now lets get down to must stamp multiple images...I show you five but I would stamp seven..

the image you are going to use as the base take your W5 Copic and colour it in..this is shading

colour face and part of hat as shown..follow pic the reason for the gray is to keep shading and it helps for layering..

once you have coloured and cut out your pieces I take a Memento Black marker and go around the outside..LORA taught me this little trip

these two pics are just showing you the difference when you take the Marker to the outside edge..
this is the glue and syringe you will use to do the layering
Arm with the face and part of the shirt..

Arm holding Fishing Pole..
Pants now
hand with no pole arm attached
Shirt now attached

Face with piece of grey Hat
Full Hat..almost done!!
Last the hand holding the fish...holy mac..
layering should look like this..
This is the finished image on a card..thks for following me on this lengthy  tutorial..

Copics Used!!

thks again for following along and please take the time to create the end result is a reward... also please stop by the CHALLENGE BLOG and join in..

Snowy Tag

Good Morning.  Hasn't the last month been fun seeing all the Christmas projects using the High Hopes new releases?  If you have been inspired too you still have time to join us this month for our CHRISTMAS challenge.  But time is running out.

Today is my last Christmas post for this month. I am using the Snowy Tag stamp and I have two tags I have created ~ one is traditional and one not so much.

Copics Used:  TAG #1 ~ 0, B000, N4, N6, N8, N10, R24, R37, R89; TAG #2 ~ B02, B05, BV13, BV15, BV18, RV11, RV13, RV14, W1, W3, W5, W7 

I paper pieced the scarf, hatband and fringe on tag #1 with paper and tag #2 with washi/craft tape.  Because I had used Copic markers on Copic paper you could see them on the other side of the tag so here is what I did:

The first tag is paper pieced with the matching paper and the second tag was covered with 3 different patterns of washi tape.  I like how both methods disguise the colors showing through.

Thanks for coming by.  Have a great day and keep crafting.

Making Friends in the Snow!!

It's a beautiful warm sunny day today, yet I'm showing you another cute winter themed card using a High Hopes image called "Making Friends". This is one of the newest images released at One Crazy Stamper with our monthly High Hopes celebration of Christmas/Winter themed images.

I had a great time coloring this image with my Copic Sketch Markers, and loved the final design of the card. The dp is from We R Memory Keepers Winter Frost collection, touches of white flocking are added to the fur trim of the snowman's hat, and I have added tons of 3D snowflakes by just using a Sakura White gel pen. This is definitely my favorite card this month.
