Winter Wonderland

Hi Everyone;

It is amazing how much we take just about everything for granted.  Due to the ice storm a lot of people have been left with no hydro for at least a week now.  It couldn't have come at the worst time as it was also Christmas week.  Now that Christmas Day has been and gone, things are getting back to normal, however there is another storm on the way.

For my last OCS post for this year, I have used the Winter Season stamp set from Heartfelt Creations.

Supplies used:
There is still a bit of time to enter this month`s Winter Holiday challenge for a chance to win a prize package from One Crazy Stamper.  As Wednesday is January 1st this means a brand new challenge as well as being the start of a brand year. 

Stay tuned to Lora's emails regarding some amazing new things that will be happening at both the OCS online store and the brick and mortar store.

Until next time, keep crafting.

A Very Merry Christmas to You!!!

Merry Christmas Eve to All!! My card today features another wonderful Stampendous House Mouse image from One Crazy Stamper.

The image is colored with Copics, and then I used a Sakura Glaze pen to add white highlights. After cutting the image out with a Spellbinders Grand die, I used the gold Viva D├ęcor Pearl Pen to create dimension, and also ran the card base through the Grand Calibur with an M-bossibilites folder. The sentiment is from Just Rite Stamps, stamped with Ranger Distress Ink crushed olive. Here's the colors of Copics that I used -

Wishing everyone a very Merry Christmas and all the Best in 2014!!!

Birthday Wishes

Thanks for coming here to see what my card is for our challenge at One Crazy Stamper is.  Winter/Holiday Theme this month, and I've had fun making all these cards.  My great-niece birthday is November and she always gets winter cards, so I thought I would get a flower theme going, except the stamp image is Two-Turtle Doves and sort of Christmas, but she is so cute, I just had to color her up and make this card for Aubrie!  I am sure she loved the card, and the flowers and colors. 
My image is from Whimsy Stamps-Two Turtle Doves that I bought at Lora's Store, and she was so fun to color and cut out.  I used 3D-foam to pop her up on my card.  Added pearls, some ribbon and some leaf/flowers, Spellbinders, and the pattern paper is from My Minds Eye-Indie Chic-Nutmeg. Copic Markers-B02, B04, B05, E71, G94, G99, BV20, BV23, E01, R20, E000, E00, E50, E33, E25, Y18, Y00, T3, T4, RV29, R46, YR21,YR20, YR23, YR24

Christmas Penguins

Good Morning.  It is Wednesday and my day to share my creation here with you at One Crazy Stamper.  By now I would figure most of us are finished our Christmas cards, tags and other projects but there always seems to be the one person we may forget.  This was an "extra" card I made in case that person came to mind.  :)  It uses a stamp from the High Hopes Christmas Release and I kept it simple so that it could be used for a male card as well.

Supplies Used:  Copic Xpress It Blending Card StockMemento Tuxedo Black InkHigh Hopes "Penguin Block"Copic MarkersHigh Hopes "Penguin Greeting"Glossy AccentsRed PearlsCrystal Stickles

There is still time to enter the challenge of  "WINTER/HOLIDAY" for the month of December.  I know I enjoy seeing all of the great creations you make for us.  I will have a post for next Wednesday which is Christmas Day but if you miss it because of family commitments, I just want to wish you and yours a very Merry Christmas and all the best for the year 2014.

Take care and keep crafting.

Christmas Cardinal

Only one more week to go until it's Christmas Eve - where has this year gone!!!  For todays post for One Crazy Stamper I have used the beautiful Christmas Cardinal from Just Rite Stamps.

For this card front, I stamped the image three separate times - the first with brown ink on the gold cardstock which is the base - I cut out the oval in the center of this base to create the opening for the blue background.  The second image was stamped and embossed with brown embossing powder on the same gold cardstock.  After the embossing cooled, I rubbed Old Gold Viva Decor Inka Gold over the raised pattern, then fussy cut the resulting frame which is raised up with pop dots.  The final stamped images are the cardinal and sentiment frame. I colored the cardinal with Copics, fussy cut,  and then attached to the card front.  Sakura's white Glaze pen added the final highlights to the berrries, and the snowflake dots on the blue central oval.

Card Recipe
Reds - R24, R27, R29
Greens - YG93, YG95, YG99
Beak/Feet - E93, E95, E97, E99
Branch - E23, E27
