Ho Ho Ho!!!

Hi OCS Followers;

I hope you all managed to get through yesterday without too much stress, as a new school year has begun for many.  Apparently, my youngest granddaughter Arwen cried as she wanted to go to school with her brother and sister, and according to her she is a big girl now.  She will be three next month.

For my post today for OCS, I have used another very adorable stamp from the High Hopes new release “Joys of the Seasons” called Happy Mail.  I used the Spectrum Noir paper along with the Spectrum Noir pencils and I really liked how colouring turned out.

Until next week, have fun being creative.

“Sing a New Song”

Hi Fellow Crafters;

We are half way through April and spring is definitely in the air.  Hope you have enjoyed the wonderful spring like weather we have had over the last few days.  For my post today at OCS, I have used the Birds and Blooms stamp from Heartfelt Creations along with the matching Birds and Blooms Die.  I stamped the images and then used the matching Birds and Blooms Die to cut everything out.  So much easier to do than fuzzy cutting and certainly worth it.  I then layered the pieces for a 3D effect.

Happy Spring!!!

Hi Everyone;

Now that March break is over, hopefully this spring like weather will stay for a while. It is certainly melting the snow and becoming a bit warmer. The month is almost over and hopefully it doesn’t go out like a lion.

For my post today at OCS I have used this adorable Hummingbird stamp as well as a sentiment from the Sign Post Sentiment set. Both are from High Hopes Rubber Stamps. The background is a stamp from Impression Obsession called Blossoming Branches Background which I coloured with some Rangers Distress Inks.

Have a Great Day!!!

Hi Fellow Crafters;

I hope you all had a good Family Day and enjoyed the time with your family.  The weather is finally warming up for a change after the cold weekend.  Here at OCS, we are having a “Red, White and a Die” challenge and the design team are using the January release of High Hopes Rubber Stamps.

For my post today, I have used the adorable Favourite Honey Bear.  I coloured the image with the Spectrum Noir Pencils, added Ranger Distress Ink to the image.  I hand wrote the sentiment as I didn’t have a suitable sentiment.  The hearts were coloured with a red Stella of Wink, and the clear was used for the honey and flower centers. The mesh was from my stash.
