Here's another Christmas card with yet another Pickles the Penguin image from Wild Rose Studios - lots of layers and extra embellishments finish off this cute card. Once again I have used Rangers Distress Ink reinkers to color this image!

Time to get those Christmas cards out to all of your family and friends, and I can finally show off some of the cards I made earlier this year ( had to plan ahead as I knew that my knee replacement would knock the creative mojo out of me ).
I still have a couple of Wild Rose Studios stamps featuring Pickles the Penguin that I never got the chance to color up and make into cards, and this image it one!! For this Cuddles image I used Distress inks to color them, then added Flower Soft Polar White to the hats to add that extra fluff!! The ribbon is from the local big box craft store, the white poinsettia are from Wild Orchid, and the dp is unknown ( guess that is what happens when you make things ahead of time ).

Welcome to another Terrifi Tuesday for One Crazy Stamper, and in keeping with the monthly challenge theme of WINTER/HOLIDAY, my card today features one of the adorable Wild Rose Studio stamps entitled Building a Snowman.
After coloring the image with Copic Sketch Markers, I used several designer papers from Bo Bunny Powder Mountain collection, and a Memory Box die - Frostyville Border to add depth and dimension.

Welcome to the first day of the last month of 2013 - where did the year go? Since it's a new month that means it's time to announce the new challenge theme at One Crazy Stamper, and this month we would love to see your WINTER projects.
For my card today I have stamped up one of the new Stampendous House Mouse designs cling stamp entitled - "Berrying Gifts" with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Copic Xpress It cardstock, and then colored the image with Copics. To make the scene nice and wintery I used white Liquid Applique and glitter to add all of the snow, and used the Sakura white glaze pen to add white highlights on the berries and eyes of the animals. The sentiment is from Whimsy Stamps Snowflake Mini Letter Seals, and the pine border punch is from Martha Stewart.

One of the wonderful things about moving is meeting new people, and just a couple of short months after my move I had new neighbors. The wife is Jewish, so for the first time I made a Happy Hannukah card, and gave it to them just the other day, to celebrate their faith.
The card features a digital stamp from Mo Manning colored with Copics and mounted on coordinating cardstock. I handwrote the sentiment and the verse inside of the card.

I finally finished the second version of the Kaisercraft Advent calendar, and as promised last week, here's the photos.
This version is for my son who loves winter outdoor sports, so I used Bo Bunny's Powder Mountain collection of paper with a white and blue theme. The center features a gnome ornament holding on to skis, sitting on snowballs - you can't get any more wintery than this!! Here's a close up of the center -

Tis the season for those lovely UGLY CHRISTMAS SWEATERS to be dug out from the back of your closet, and to be proudly worn for every one's pleasure. My card today features this annual event with the use of the Art Impressions Ugly Sweater Stamp set.
After coloring the image with my Copic Sketch Markers, I used a Copic Multiliner to draw the lines on the bells back in, then fussy cut the image and mounted it on the inside of the card with an Action Wobbler. The image is framed with a cut-out made with a Spellbinders die. An older Bo Bunny dp is the card front and inside. The awesome sentiment is included with the image stamp.
