Magical Moments...

Welcome OCS Fans;

For today's post, I have used the "Wizard in Training" from the High Hopes Stamps latest release called "A Magical Day".   It would be nice if she could do some magic that would bring us some spring.

Today's card is on the clean and simple side.  The two side panels were created by using the Vintage Border Hot Foil Stamp and the GoPress and Foil machine to foil them.  This machine can foil embossing folders as well as wafer thin dies.

Supplies used:

Until next time, happy crafting

Fairy Garden Magic

This week my card features the Fairy Garden and Twinkle Fairy from High Hopes Rubber Stamps.

I have heard you have to be very, very quiet and pull the plants back slowly and if you're lucky, very lucky you will see a magical garden. I chose to put my garden behind a circle cut out to mimic that. 

Both of these stamps are coloured with alcohol markers and the fairy is hand fussy cut. I added some sparkle to her wings with Stickles and to some of the flowers in the garden. I wanted to keep my paper on the more subtle side to keep the focus on this beautiful garden and fairy. Some branches and sparkle gumdrops finish off my card.

Magical Moments!

Hi OCS Fans!
Today I wanted to share with you my very first "Z Fold" card!  The card is cool as if folds flat but then........
When you open it up it reveals more card and stands up really well with the "Z fold". I thought these 2 sweet little images would pair so cutely together! I am using the High Hopes  "Little Wizard" and "Little Wizard In Training".
I decided to pull out some Halloween papers from the Doodlebug Boos & Brews 6x6 collection to use today! I thought they were perfect to match the theme of my card! I added the HH "Magical Moments" sentiment. This card was fun and so easy to make! I followed along with a video tutorial you can find HERE.
Here you get a better view of the "Z" and the way you can decorate the card.

Dragon Pals Welcome

I'm not sure why but from the moment I saw the Dragon Pals stamp from the new A Magical Day release I thought new baby card. 

I also wanted to think outside the box when it came to my colour choices for something different and fun so I coloured these cuties in a green and orange colour combo.

After colouring my stamp with alcohol markers I hand fussy cut it the wing tip and tail so I could fit my circle die underneath to do a partial die cut.  I added some pink Spectrum Sparkle pen to the butterfly wings - it's a little hard to see. Next I grabbed a cloud die cut and my baby blue ink and formed my clouds. I added some pale grey under their feet....maybe next time I would use green - hindsight is always the best isn't it?! <wink> 
Patterned paper from Photo Play had a perfect combination for the base of my card. Some Prima flowers, ribbon and enamel dots finish off my card. 

Card Recipe

Sprinkles of Fairy Dust

It's a cool drizzly day here in the Kootenay's so to brighten up the day I have created an adorable card with the colors of spring!

This sweet image is "Twinkle Fairy" from High Hopes rubber stamps, and can be purchased here at One Crazy Stamper.  I stamped the image on Copic Xpress It cardstock with My Favorite Things Cement Grey hybrid ink, then colored it with Copic markers, adding just a touch of Prismacolor pencils to deepen shadows and add highlights.  After fussy cutting the image and placing it on the card front, I created dots of sparkle and covered the wings with Ranger Frosted Lace Stickles.  The sentiment is also available here at One Crazy Stamper, and is also part of the new release "A Magical Day".

Card Recipe

Wizarding Gnome!

Hi OCS Fans!
I wanted to share this CAS card I designed with you today! I am using the "Wizarding Gnome" from the New Release over at High Hopes Stamps called "It's A Magical Day".
My design is really simple with no Designer paper today. All I did was create a mystical night sky using some Tim Holtz Distress Inks. I blended all the colours together and then sprayed it with a bit of water. Once I heat set that, I use a paintbrush and splattered some Copic Opaque solution onto it. Using a Spellbinder Labels 18 die, I then just cut out my shape and popped up my image onto it. I added the High Hopes sentiment called "Dream Big" right onto my card base using my MISTI for perfect placement! I used a Whimsy FAdoodles stamp set to add some interest in the corners. A bit of Yellow Stickles and everything was done.
Copics Used:
E00, E11, E21
V05, V06, V09
W1, W3, W4, W5, W6, W7
Y35, Y38
C00, C01

Happy Stamping!

Card Kits #25 & #26

We are just days away from Scrapfest in Kitchener, Ontario (April 13 & 14), so I wanted to share the final two card kits that will be available in the One Crazy Stamper booth.  Kit #25 is one of my all-time favourite Card Kits featuring Winter Moose RR019 and merry Christmoose G142 from High Hopes Rubber Stamps!
 This card has such a classic Canadian Christmas feel to it!  I've coloured his hat & scarf to mimic a buffalo plaid (just like our Olympic team!) and tucked in a few sprigs of greenery.  The sentiment is raised up on pop dots. The Card Kits contain all the pieces to put together four cards, including all of the cut paper, card bases & envelopes.  What you need to provide is black ink, the colouring method of your choice, and adhesives.  There is a full colour instruction sheet that includes a photo, step-by-step instructions including a list of the Copic colours that are used in the sample, and all of the cutting measurements so that you can make more cards using your own supplies later.  The kit contains both the image and sentiment as unmounted red rubber stamps - so you'll want to pick up some EZ Mount adhesive cushion from the OCS store as well.

 Now this is something that I'm very excited about!!  Welcome to our first ever OCS Quick Kit! - Card Kit #26.  Like the other kits, you get all the cut pieces, die cuts, card bases & envelopes to put together four cards - along with the Cookies & Cocoa Script H096 sentiment stamp from High Hopes Rubber Stamps.  *The main difference being that there is no image to colour.  Just stamp the sentiment on the four white ovals in the kit, and you can have all four cards assembled within half an hour.  Who doesn't need a few quick Christmas cards?  And of course, you'll get all of the instructions and measurements to make a bunch more with your own supplies.
*If you can't make it to Scrapfest, any remaining kits will be available in the store after the show. Happy Stamping!
