Merry Christmas

Hello Fellow Crafters;

Hump day is here again, and another week will soon be over.  This also means that school is approaching in approximately two weeks, which also means that we are approaching the end of the month.

For my last post of this month, I have used a Stampendous stamp called “Classic Santa“.  I used Polar White Flower Soft for the trim on Santa’s hat, and sleeve cuffs as well as on the bear’s hat. The clear Zig of Wink of Stella was used to go over Santa’s bag as well as the black image around the Santa image.

Enjoy the Little Things!!!

Hi Everyone;

It is Wacky Wednesday and it looks like Spring has finally come.  Trees are beginning to show their leaves, flowers are starting to bloom and birds are making their nests including the one on top of the light by my front door.

Today’s post for OCS is using this adorable stamp called Flower Girl from the Time for Tea Designs Collection by Whimsy Stamps.  I also played with some Taffeta Vertigo Film from Imagine Crafts, the Hardy Geranium a Sizzix die from the Susan’s Garden collection and Pan Pastels.  It took a few attempts to get the effect that I wanted for the flower.  I soaked the cut pieces in some hot water for a few minutes and this helped to soften the film to make it a bit more flexible.   I had to be careful with the Pan Pastels, as the glue would take a bit of it off.  I will be trying other mediums to add colour to the Vertigo Film.

Best Wishes!!!

Hi Everyone;

It has been quite a while since I have been able to use any other mediums then Copic Markers, so I thought for today’s post for One Crazy Stamper, I would try the Inktense pencils.  I also went out of my comfort zone a bit.  I used this same image on the 1st of the month, completely different layout and Copic Markers were used at that time.

garden

I touched a wet paint brush to the tip of the Inktense pencil and transferred this to a craft sheet.  This was done a few times, so that there was a small pool of colour on the sheet.  I used a stem stitch and Hot Pink Sulky thread around the die cuts.

Supplies used:

There are still a few days left to enter this month’s “Anything Goes” challenge. Please DO NOT use a Digital Image.  In the meantime, check out Lora’s store One Crazy Stamper for some amazing deals.

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.

rosalie

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 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


Attach the image to one side of the front of the card and add any embellishments
