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 matted 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.

Runaway Cake by Your Next Stamp. Too cute! I wish you could see how cool those candles and chipboard pieces cut from sizzlet dies turned out! Here's a close up:
Bahama Blue Fireworks spray. Forget about all the other colored mists you've tried! This stuff is intense!! I love it! You could also use them with the new glimmer screens that Lora is carrying!
Back to our little rascally rat ; ) He was stamped with Memento Ink, a must have for all of your copic work! I colored him and the candles with my copics, then I added some stickles. And I just have to mention an overlooked product, adhesive!! If you've not tried the X-Press It tape you need to! I love this stuff! It's strong, economical and earth friendly (not all those plastic parts to throw away)!
That's all for today but don't forget you still have a few days to get in our Colors of the Rainbow challenge!

Here it is Wonderful Wednesday – hope everyone is enjoying the sun and warmth of spring. We are socked in with rain here in the Okanagan Valley, but we do need rain to water all those bedding plants at home. I’m at our Lake property and dh is fishing in Alaska with friends on their gorgeous boat the Kluane II. They say “Give a man a fish and he’ll eat for one day, but teach him how to fish and he’ll be gone whenever he can go fishing”. It’s true.
Today, I’m using “Rock Chick” from the Kenny K glam series. It was fun to work with and really out of the box for me. I really love these images! Hope you enjoy my U Roc! card.
I stamped the image using copic Xpress c/s and Memento ink, colored her, and then cut out and mounted onto a labels 14 with dimensionals. The guitar was covered with glossy accents.
Materials: Xpress Blend it C/S; copics Tuxedo Black Memento ink; Spellbinders Labels 14; Floral Fantasy Embossing Folder; Sakura Stardust pen,MS border punch; papers from stash; Bo Bunny designer paper, Mauve glitter paper, SU cardstock, glossy accents. and flower from stash.
