Barefoot Tilda - Magnolia

Well this poor little Barefoot Tilda has sat on my desk for at least 2 weeks or more...all coloured and just waiting to be put together.  Everyday I looked at her and she looked at me, I just couldn't take it anymore so I put her together tonight.

I feel so bad but I put away the Copic's a week ago and cannot for the life of me remember which ones I used...note to self...don't do that again that's what posties are for.

I still thought I should share her with all of you today!

Thanks so much for stopping by today, I will remember those Copic numbers for next time I promise.




Bildmalarna - Mimosa at the Stump Glassy Embossing Technique

So I'm back today with Mimosa at the Stump from Bildmalarna and available here.  The colour scheme is the same as yesterday I used all the same papers & Copic markers...but...this time I used the Glassy Embossing Technique from Technique Junkies.  I have done a few cards lately with this technique, I just think it's so EASY & so COOL!.  On this image I flipped the colours around, I think I like the hat in the BV colour scheme a little better with this hair tone.  The glassy embossing technique still gives me the distress look I was originally going for due in part to the Cosmo Cricket patterned paper.  I changed up the ribbon on this card, left off the flowers and brad and replaced with corduroy buttons instead.  Now the ribbon on this card is thick to I cut a super thin strip and carefully fed it through the button holes so they would co-ordinate.  I also added a tiny bit of Stickles to the centre of the little flowers beside the stump although they are a wee bit difficult to see.

For all the info on cardstock & Copic colours view yesterday's post.

Bildmalarna - Mimosa at the Stump

This is Mimosa at the Stump available at OneCrazystamper.  This is one of the few times I have gone totally out of my comfort zone for colour.  I would say this is a very grunge type look complete with distressing & some Vintage Photo Tim Holtz Distress Ink.  I added a bit of Flower Soft too, I mixed two greens together to get this colour.  I even distress the ribbon which I found in my stash.  I also distressed the flowers and added a corduroy brad for a bit more texture.  The cardsock is American Craft textured, Graphite & Cranberry.  The patterned paper is Cosmo Cricket that is/was a part of my ever growing stash of paper just waiting for the perfect image.  The flower in the centre (Cumquat colour, yes that is a real fruit...pretty tasty too) by Kaiser Craft.

Mimosa at the Stump is coloured with Copic's here are the colours I used:

Skin:  E000, E01, E00 & R20

Hat, Dress & Shoes:  YR20, YR14 & YR24

Shirt, Patch & Dress:  BV20, BV23, BV25

Mimo & Mimosa with a Tulip

It is a beautiful sunny day here in Bolton, Ontario this morning, the sun is shinning and the birds are chirping.  It almost feels like spring but it's only +10 degrees today.  I'll take this weather over snow any!

I'm posting two new cards today, one using Mimo with a Tulip and the other Mimosa with a Tulip.  These stamps are from Bildmalarna and will arrive in my web store www.onecrazystamper.comapprox. the first week of April.  I feel in love with the Bildmalarna line as soon as I laid my eyes on it.

Both cards are coloured with Copic's and stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Prism Simply Smooth white cardstock.

Here is Mimo:

I used the Glassy Embossing Technique on the piece just behind Mimo.  I like this technique because it gives the patterned paper different look.

This is a close up of just Mimo: 

Mimo Sig Two

I used Prism Brilliant Blue & Prism Blue Gray cardstock .  The patterned paper is Bo Bunny Brilliant Blue Dot.  I did do the inside of the card on this one but fairly plain no froo froo, if that's even a word.  The pearls are Kaiser Craft self-adhesive Pearls & the ribbon is some misc. satin from my stash.  There is a little bit of Stickles on the flower and the stem it's just a bit difficult to see, that would be because I lack good photography skills.


Skin:  E000, E01, E00 (R20 for the cheeks)

Flower:  R11, R30, R32

Overalls & Socks:  B91, B95, B97

Shoes & Shirt:  C2, C4, C7

Leaf & Stem:  G12, G14, G16

Hair:  Y23, YR23, E13

Now onto Mimosa.  I have used Prism Frosted Teal and Almost Amethyst cardstock.  In addition to Kaiser Craft self-adhesive Pearls, organza ribbon & stickles.  I also used the Martha Stewart boarder punch on the inside of this card.

Just a quick post to update you!

I'm so sorry that I have not posted any cards since last week, although I do have some ready to go.  Many things have taken over my time in the past week.  I have been diligently working on my brand new website.  This is a totally new venture for me but one I have wanted to do for years.  I work full time outside the home, in addition I have two children, so time is ever so precious.

I will have some cards up by Saturday for sure:  Magnolia's & Bildmalarna's using the Glossy Embossing Technique

Now back to my new website.  Many may have already noticed the lack of Stampin' Up! information on my blog that is because I am no longer a demonstrator for SU.  I love the company and the product it was just time for me to move onto a new venture.  If you click the "My Website" button on this blog you will be taken directly to my new website I am currently in the process of getting things loaded on the site, it is a tedious process.  I haven't opened up the shopping cart just yet but I will sometime within the next week or so.

I am very excited to be offering new product lines, with more coming each and everyday.  Over the coming days, weeks and months I endeavor to share many things including different techniques, card designs and even scrapbook samples on this blog.

Thanks to each of you for your patience while I get everything set up!
