I'm Back!!!!!!


It's official, as of today I am back on the One Crazy Stamper design team, so every Thursday I will be posting a creation featuring products from the store - if you haven't checked it out yet head on over to the online store here, or if you are fortunate enough to live in the Bolton, Ontario area you can get your fix at the retail store. The challenge theme this month is "Anything Goes".  You can use any stamp except for digital images.  You have all month to join in the fun for a chance to win a fabulous prize from OCS.

 
For today's post my card features an adorable image from High Hopes Rubber Stamps entitled "Frosty's Friends, which I have colored with Copics, then added Polar White Flower Soft to the hat's pompom, and white Liquid Applique to the snow.  The dp and twine are from Doodlebug's Frosty Friends collection, while the sentiment and snowflakes are from my stash.

Holiday Cheer

It's time to show off another companies gorgeous image, and the image today is from Sugar Nellie.  I have colored the image with Copics, used Smooch over the wings to add glimmer ( which does not show in this photo ), then added touches of blue glimmer with a Sakura Metallic Gel pen, before using a Spellbinder die to cut the image and the surrounding mat.  The dp is from Simple Stories Handmade Holiday collection, the corner snowflake die is from Memory Box, and the sentiment and frame are from Whimsy Stamp.

Skating Penguin


Another day, another penguin, but this time it's an adorable image from Wild Rose Studios by the name of Pickles.  I have used Distress Inks to color this cutie then cut it out and matted it with a Spellbinder die.  The edge of the mat was highlighted with Stickles, and then placed on dp from my stash.  The gorgeous dies are from Memory Box, and the sentiment is from Whimsy Stamps.

Another gorgeous Lili of the Valley image for my card today.  I have colored her with Copics and added some depth with Prismacolor pencils, then double matted the image before placing it on dp from Simple Stories Cozy Christmas collection.  A Lili of the Valley sentiment and a beautiful Memory Box die complete the card.

Under the Umbrella

Switching up today by not posting a Christmas themed card, instead I have this stunning card featuring the Stamping Bella image "Uptown Couple Emily and Ryan Under the Umbrella".  The image was colored with Copic sketch markers then matted and placed on a card from featuring paper from Prima.
