Blue Christmas

Happy Halloween everyone!! 

It's time for me to show you another one of the new release images from High Hopes Rubber Stamps, and this time around I have not done any coloring!!

This beauty was created by stamping the Wreath (TT167) image on to Copic Xpress It cardstock with VersaMark embossing ink, and then covering the image with clear embossing powder.  After heat setting the image I then used Mermaid Lagoon, Peacock Feathers, and Blueprint Sketch distress inks to create the background color.  The Merry Christmas sentiment is also from the newest Woodsy Christmas release and can be purchased here.  Some randomly place dots of white created with a Sakura white gel pen, and a touch of Star Dust Stickles finish off the card front.

Christmas Trio

Wednesday has come again, so it's time for me to share my latest creation for One Crazy Stamper.  The new release Woodsy Christmas has arrived at the store, and is available for purchase, but alas Canada Post is slow in getting my stamps to me so....... in the meantime I have an older image to share with you all.

This image is Three Pane Christmas from High Hopes Rubber stamps that I have stamped on to Copic Xpress It cardstock with Memento ink, and then colored with my Copic sketch markers.  Once I fussy cut the image out, it was placed on a card front that features an older Cuttlebug embossing folder, some Carta Bella paper, and a My Favorite Things sentiment.

Card Recipe - E00, E01, E11, E23, E25, E27, E40, E42, E43B02, R20, R29, R39, R59, 100, 0, Y23, Y28, G24, G29, C2, BG0000

Snow Bird

Hard to believe but Christmas is just a short few weeks away, so I have been busy creating cards for the occasion.  Today's card for One Crazy Stamper is just one of many!

I got creative with this image entitled Blue Birdy (PP001) from High Hopes Rubber Stamps,by using it as the main focal point of the card, and also to create the patterned paper on the top of the card.  I stamped the image lightly in three colors to coordinate with the designer paper I picked, and then stamped the image with Memento Ink, and colored the image with Copics.  The addition of some Stampendous Fun Flock to the fur details finished off the image.

Card Recipe - Copics - B34, B37, B39, YR04, YR09, V04, V06, V09

Hockey Greetings

It's been a crazy week - I spent last week in Calgary teaching classes, visiting friends and hitting all of my favorite restaurants!!  I was going to return home to the Kootenays today, but thankfully I was watching the weather forecast and knew I had to make the long drive home yesterday - good thing as Calgary was hit with a big dump of snow today - up to 35 cm in parts of the city!! 

For today's One Crazy Stamper post I colored up "Goalie Gregg" P025 with my Copic sketch markers and then mounted it on a card that I created with just colored cardstock.  The sentiment is hand written.

Card Recipe - E00, E01, E11, E21, E23, E25, E27, E33, E35, E37, B24, B26, R24, R27, R29, N1, N3, N4, N10
