Cottage Mouse

Hi all, Madge here once again wishing everyone a wonderful Wednesday. We are back at the lake to relax and get away from it all once again.  Not having my usual unlimited crafting supplies at my fingertips, narrows down my options, but here is what I came up with………  I’ve created a card using “Cottage Mouse” by Stampavie, from Lora’s wonderful store, One Crazy Stamper.   

If you are hooked on Copic markers , have you tried the Xpress-It-Blending-Cardstock??  It is fantabulous for blending!!  It pains me to use anything else…… the colors seem to be so much more vibrant!

Cottage Mouse was stamped on X-Press It with Tuxedo Black Memento ink, colored with Copic markers, trimmed and sponged with Tim Holtz “Broken China" distress ink. SU’s Cherry Cobbler was used for the matting, followed by a S-E-I DP punched with a Martha Stewart Around the Edge set (Vintage Floral), and then P1120299matted onto more SU Cherry Cobbler.  I started out with a 5 1/2” x 11” piece of SU’s Blush Blossom but the contrast between the BB and CC were too orange, so out came Copic Marker RV10 to bring it to a pinkish shade to blend with the SEI DP………..phew!! 

OOps, I forgot to add that I stamped the wee little mouse a second time, colored her and then cut her out to pop it up off the main image.  For co-ordinating flowers, I chose pale yellow roses and brushed the edges with YR21 and added pale pink roses to tie them altogether.  I also finished the inside with the reverse punched papers.  Hope you like my creation. 

P1120315 Tomorrow, there will be a wonderful creation by our newest teamie, Patricia – who is uber- talented…………….so until next time.

Rainbow Wishes

P1120274 copy Hi Everyone.  One Crazy Stamper has a “Color of the Rainbow” theme for June. Enter your card for a chance to win some very nice prizes!

Different ideas came to mind, but to get away from the cutesie images I’ve been doing lately, I chose the set Fanciful Flourishes from Flourishes stamps. 

Materials used:  Fanciful Flourish Butterfly, Tim Holtz Distress inks, Black Memento Ink, Xpress Blend it copic paper, Stardust glitter pen, Transparency and Black StazOn ink.  Ribbon from stash and butterflies were punched from trimmings of the background paper.  I also added 3 graduated Black Pearls to the butterfly that I stamped and trimmed to pop up over the background.  The Stardust glitter pen was used to add some doodles on the butterflies.

Have a super extra special week – the weather in our part of the country is supposed to get warmer!!!  Yea!!
