Guest Designer Special Request

I recently had a special request from a friend that was on my current design team to participate in their wonderful blog as a guest designer.

Karen Day from Inspired by All the Little Things asked me to post something that I was inspired by from the following photo:

For me a window box full of colourful flowers means that spring is here and that summer is almost here as well. Also spring signifies a new beginning as flowers and plants start to grow and then bloom for the rest of the summer.

The stamp is “Pansy Window Box Frame” which is from High Hopes Stamps, was coloured with Copic Sketch Markers. I trimmed the image down and used a 1/2′” corner rounder.  Rhinestones were added to the center of the flowers.  The paper is from Heartfelt Creations Butterfly Melody Collection.



Welcome back OCS fans;

It is now official — Spring has arrived.  We just need to see if  mother nature will co-operate and give us some nice spring weather.

For my post today, I have used the adorable Julie’s Flight stamp from High Hopes Rubber Stamps.

Supplies used:

Do join us for this month’s challenge which is “Anything Goes”.  To see all the new products that are arriving daily, check out Lora’s OCS store.

Dream, Wish, Believe!!!

Happy Tuesday OCS Fans;

Today, I’m using Julie’s Dream, from High Hopes Rubber Stamps, which is part of the Fairies collection. We all need to dream, wish and believe at times.  I used copics to colour the image and added some glitter to Julie’s wings.  For the inside of the card, I used a sentiment from the Simple Stories Enchanted collection.

Rosalie and Flower Soft Tutorial

Hi Everyone;

Wacky Wednesday is here again and for today’s post at One Crazy Stamper, I have used this adorable stamp called Rosalie from Your Next Stamp.  I am also will be showing how to use this neat product called Flower Soft.


1.  After stamping the image with Tsukineko Memento Tuxedo Black, I coloured it with the Copic Markers.  The image was then cut using the Floral Oval die from Spellbinders.

2. Back stitch using the metallic thread.

3. Add  Lilac Distress ink to the border.

4.  Adding the Flower Soft.

Flower Soft comes in several colours mixed and single as well as ultra fine.

i. Crocus, lilac and shamrock green were slowly added to certain areas of the image. To obtain the results you would like, make sure to use the Flower Soft glue as it water soluble but also extra thick.

ii. Add the Flower Soft in sections and only do one colour at a time, otherwise the colours can become mixed and unless you want that particular combination not usable.

iii.  The Flower Soft glue bottle has a long point which is just snipped at the top to allow the glue to flow.

iv.  As the Flower Soft is quite compact in the jars, add some to a container and break it up to make it fluffy.  Add a bit of glue to the area you want to start with.

v.  I added Lilac to a small area at the top; then pressed it down and shook off the excess.  I then added more glue to the original image and added Crocus which is a combination of white, light and dark shades of  crocus.


vi. Once the Crocus has been added to the flower part, then add Shamrock Green to the leaves and stem of the flower.

Card Base

  • Cut a 6″ x 12″ card base and score at 6″ and 9″
  • Fold in half at 6″ and then fold the top at the 9″ score mark to the left

  • Cut 3 peices of designer paper — 1 piece at 5 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ and 2 pieces at 2 1/2″ x 5 1/2″.  The designer paper is also reversible
