I have a FUN and EASY tutorial for you today! I love this adorable High Hopes image called Flame Broilen. I knew as soon as I saw this image I wanted to use foil. As in aluminum foil for cooking! I figured since it is so flexible it would probably hold a shape!
I started by stamping my image as I usually do. If I am coloring with copics I ALWAYS use Memento Black. Never, ever, ever smears!
Here is my image colored.
Here are the copics I used.
Once it is embossed I gently trim the edges in my table top trimmer. DO NOT push down very hard because you can flatten the shape right out!
I don't use my tape runner on the foil but I do use glue dots on the paper I am attaching it too. I also used a brad this time to keep my place. I used some of the cool new brads that the store carries! They look like screws!

Hi all, Madge here for another Wonderful Wednesday at OCS. I have really stepped out of my “monochromatic Madge” box for this card. Don’t you just love this image!!?? It is available at OCS and is called Chloe from the Elizabeth Bell Collection of Whimsy Stamps.
I have to admit, this is really out of the box for me with the bright pink and lime green. When I looked at the little bee at the right, I know I should have added some stitching around the image – but too late.

I don't know about you, but I have THE WORST time coming up with creative ideas for masculine/boy cards! I don't want to add too much because I am worried it might look girly! What does help is fun images that work well with masculine cards. High Hopes has a bunch of great images that are perfect for boy cards! I used Henry the Great by High Hopes. I colored the image with copics and I always use memento tuxedo black.

This adorable image called Hello by Stampavie inspired my pink, black, grey and white color scheme.
I colored my image with the following Copic Markers: 110, T4, T2, N3, RV10, E42. I used a pink Sharpie permanent marker for my phone details and used a Signo white gel pen to add the detailing on the phone back in after coloring it black. I also highlighted kitty's eyes with the white gel pen. Finally, I distressed the image with Tim Holtz Pumice Stone Distress Ink.
I used a simple designer paper and some stickers to add my sentiment. Sometimes clean and simple just strikes me, and in this case I wanted the image to shine!

It's Sue here for my regular Sunday post for One Crazy Stamper. I don't know how others feel, but I find that a sympathy card is one of the hardest to make.

The flower was coloured with the new Derwent Inktense Pencils.
- Stamp: Sympathy Sentiments (Kraftin' Kimmie)
- Ink: Staz-On Jet Black
- Paper: Canson Watercolor Paper 120 lbs (from my stash), no design paper was used
- Spellbinders Nestabilities: Standard Circles Large, Lacey Circles and Grommet Tags

- Miscellaneous: Blue Ribbon
See you next week for another regular Sunday post for OCS.

Henry the Great! All I saw was bright bunnies when I saw this image! I find it hard to make boy cards because I don't make very many boy cards so I try to stick to primary colors. Also, for the black suit I used the C gray's so it is not too dark.
Hope you enjoyed!

Quick post on another wonderful Wednesday at OCS . I’ve chosen a Whimsy Stamp called Good Pony from the Chrissy Armstrong collection. The challenge at OCS for the month of July is BBQ / food. I think this qualifies as there is an apple treat for the four legged friend. Can you believe I colored this image and then had to seek out paper to match – with no luck. I ended up making patterned paper with White Stazon. Check out the great selection of patterned paper at OCS. The stars were drawn and hand cut along with the black mats. The image was stamped onto Xpress it Blend cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, colored with copic markers and cut into a rectangle. I’ve been trying to use old (really old) products from my stash from 100 years ago…… do you remember “mesh?” I dug some out of my drawer and folded it around the bottom of my card, topping it with a knotted yellow gingham ribbon.
I’ve noticed that there is only ONE entry for the free stamps from OCS!!! Hope to see your card there so I can visit your blog and say "hello”.
Hope your Wednesday and the rest of the week are warm and sunny. “Remember, stamp up a storm, ink up a wish and send it on to someone to make their day”.
