Hello All;

I hope you all are having a good summer.  July is almost over which means the summer holidays are half over for the children and yes school supplies are already in the stores.  We have been having a Creative Inspiration for July here at OCS and hope you all have been inspired by the OCS Design Team gals who have done some fabulous cards.

I have had some more fun playing with the Elizabeth Craft Designs Dies.  This time I used the Accordion Circle Card and the Square with Circle Frame Edges.

Birthday Diva

I Hope ya'll enjoy my card and are having a great summer! I know we are, we've been busy enjoying the neighbourhood splash pad, the ROM, Storybook Gardens, the beach, McMichaels art museum, the Niagara Butterfly Conservatory and now awaiting our vacation to the republic of Trinidad and Tobago!

I have a birthday card that I made for a lovely(diva) friend of mine, I used Victoria by YNS and coloured with my copic markers. A few of the details that cannot be seen in the photograph is the glossy accents on the die cut butterflies and DP, and also the sentiment die that was glittered and burnished.

Happy Birthday Bridge

Welcome back friends, wow almost the end of July crazy how this summer is flying by.  I do hope you are enjoy your time with family friends.  The weather has been much nicer to us this month and we sure appreciate it.  As our Winter was so very long, and the spring wasn't that great.  But on the bright side it is a wonderful day today, and that is all that counts. 
My card today is the last one for July's Inspiration at One Crazy Stamper, I am showcasing another way you can use your dies.  If you remember the first post this month I used the Memory Box bridge die I added sparkle and now today, using it again.  This time I added some versa mark and some white embossing powder, you can't really see it in the photos, but it is there, and then adding some flowers and more dies from spellbinders to finish my card off.  I like how you can make these dies all work together and in array of ways.  So pop on over to Lora's store she has this Memory Box bridge die, and tons of others.  I do hope you get a chance to take in all the Inspirational projects the design team has showcased for you this month, share the love, as we really appreciate a comment or two. Till next time I hope you get crafty!

Happy Birthday Cone

Hello Monday friends, and I have another inspirational card to share with you.  This one is very special for me.  As I was lucky to have a young girl craft with me, she is only 12, and I think she will be coloring beyond me soon, if not already.  I said I would make the card, if she colored and so we crafted this one together.  Thank you very much girlie, and anytime you want to craft again with me, I would be honored.
The stamp I am show casing today for our Inspirational month at One Crazy Stamper is called Birthday cone from Stampendous.  So awesome, and I added some ribbon/flowers a sentiment from Whimsy Stamps called-Simple Sentiments. I also used Spellbinders and some 3D Foam tape to pop this wonderful cute image up. Added some Wink of Stella clear over the candles and the ice cream for sparkle oh and on the hats too. I do hope you get a chance to see all the wonderful creations at One Crazy Stamper and to get inspired by our fantabulouso design team, and get crafty too, maybe with a friend or alone.  There is always a good time to get your creative juices flowing.  Till next time happy crafting, and for some much needed retail therapy pop over to Lora's store, and get shopping.  Cheers!
