Leanne's Tutorial using Dies

Thanks for stopping by, today I am doing a tutorial for One Crazy Stamper, and I didn't really know what to make, so my dear friend said I use a lot of different company dies, and should show case dies.  So that is my Tutorial.  I am using Spellbinders for this one.  I hope I took the pictures in the correct order.  I didn't add many embellishments for this one, wanted to showcase the dies.  You can create so many wonderful projects using dies.  Thanks again for stopping and I hope you get into your craft room to create. 
 I used 3D Foam Tape and adhered the white to the red, then adhered to my card stock base.
 I cut out the main die, and used Labels 8 for the center, and again used 3D Foam Tape to Pop it up.
 This die I added to the other die, using glue dots.
 This oval die I also used the large classic oval die for the center, and then using 3D Foam tape popped it up.
 I stamped a sentiment on the white oval and popped it up using foam tape and you can still see the red a wee bit.
  The next die, I wanted to use was perfect to see a bit of red behind it.
 I used glue dots to adhere to the ovals.
 Then added this to my card base, and started to added some flowers (poinsettias).
 I also used my red wink of stella brush pen to add some sparkle to the poinsettias.
 You could add much more to this card or any project.  I used the step card base, but you sure could make this using many different card bases.
 Thanks again, and happy crafting.
Supplies used:
Red-White Card Stock
Layered Poinsettia
Raindrops on Rose-Heartfelt Creations 
Floral Ovals
Classic Ovals Large
Labels 4
Labels 8
Decorative Labels 8
Exquisite Labels 11

Witch Wanda

Halloween is just a few weeks away... so I am sharing an Art Impressions stamp called Witch Wanda today.  I've coloured her all in 'greyscale' using just the warm grey Copic markers, which gives her a bit of a creepy/vintage look!
I've used a cream cardstock - but she looks even creepier on white!  Give it a try - it's kind of like colouring a black & white photo?
Lora has some wonderful Halloween papers in the One Crazy Stamper store, whether you're making cards, crafts or scrapbooking.  And here's a tip: when you're on the homepage of the OCS online store, click on "New Items" on the sidebar - and it will show you all the items that have just arrived in the store!  With the holidays coming up, you're going to want the latest & greatest products asap!

No Peeking!

Woo hoo! Another terrific Tuesday and another cutie new High Hopes stamp to share with you. For my design I used some older Bo Bunny dp, plenty of flowers and two inch satin ribbon that I had. This image was coloured with my Inktense pencils and I was lucky enough to have this perfect High Hopes sentiment in my stash. I also used blue distress ink and twinkling H20's, both on the image and on the die cut behind it.

So many lovely entries this month, keep 'em coming! We love to see all the talent out there!

Christmas Baby!

Hello and welcome to another Wacky Wednesday.  There has definitely been a chill in the air these past few days.  I certainly hope winter is in no hurry, as we are only half way through September.
The OCS DT gals are show casing the newest release from High Hopes Rubber Stamps for OCS this month.

For my card today, I have used the adorable Christmas Baby stamp.  I used the Holly Green Cosmic Shimmer Paste from Creative Expressions to add some sparkle around the circle edge.  This is new product which sold out rather quickly.  I do hope Lora will have some more in stock soon as it is a rather neat product for some sparkle.

The ribbon and stocking brad, I found in my stash after I converted a spare bedroom into my craft room.  Everything is now out of my bedroom closet and not hidden away somewhere -- yeah!!!

Supplies used:
Can't wait to see some more awesome entries for this month's challenge.  There is still plenty of time and for any supplies you need hop over to Lora's OCS store for some amazing prices and new products.

Until next time Happy Crafting and have fun.  Hugs,

Oh Christmas Tree

Hello crafty peeps, today I have one of the cute new release stamps from High Hopes. I coloured with prisma pencils and I embellished the image with flock, diamond dust and glitter. I'm not sure how the weather is in Canada, but here in Trinidad it is hot hot hot! We are having a wonderful time seeing family, enjoying the tasty food(DOUBLES!) soaking up the sun and swimming at the beautiful beaches and not to mention drinking coconut water straight from a fresh coconut!

Be sure to check out all the fab creations at featuring the HH release!
