A gift....

Hi!  Well I made this very cute item awhile ago as a gift.  It has thank you cards, gift tags, note cards all matching!  I love it!

This was a tutorial on splitcoast stampers!  Besides all of the cutting for the box it was actually a pretty easy project!

Halloween Greetings

Hi All!  This has been a fabulous month to be a One Crazy Stamper follower!!!  I have you seen all of the blog candy????  It is a blog candy bonanza!  Make sure you join in on all of the fun to get your share of the goodies!

OK so for my project I wanted to make clean and simple Halloween greetings. Clean and simple is not my strong suit and also one sheet cards are REALLY not my strong suit so I challenged myself to really try because I had this idea in my head since I saw these two stamps in the Your Next Stamp September release.

I used Spooky Hello and Spooktacular. 

 I used Versamark Ink to stamp the image and embossed with Black detail embossing powder.  For some reason no matter what I do to the paper (embossing buddy, fabric sheet) I can never get the image as crisp as I would like.....there is always stray powder!  Any suggestions?

After I heat embossed I used the copic air compressor and airbrushed around each image and then stamped the saying in the bottom.
I received this cool adhesive paper ribbon a long time ago but never used it so I thought I would break it out and use it here to give it a little something!

Enjoy and make sure you have the deadlines for all the blog candy and their is still time to join in this months challenge HERE.

Paper Pretties Whatnot

Woo Hoo Another whatnot challenge!!!  This one was really fun!  made me jump put of my comfort zone and try colors I usually don't use!  We were to use primary colors.....had to think for a second wayyyyyy back to grade school and primary colors are the colors you mix to get other colors :)  they are the 3 basic colors:  Red, Blue and Yellow!  I had to break out some of the brilliant blue from stampin up that retired awhile ago that I hoarded!
