Smiles Across the Miles

Terrific Tuesday time again, and for this weeks One Crazy Stamper card I got to play with one of the newer stamp companies that is now being carried in the store.  This adorable image is from Little Darlings Candibean line, and is called Jessie and Pup.

The image was colored with Copics, then mounted on dp from First Edition.  One edge of the paper was punched with a Martha Stewart border punch.  The sentiment is from my stash.

Playdate Anyone?

Time for a change to a clean and simple card design today!  The image today is from Whimsy Stamps artist Sandy Allnock and is entitled Tai & Lisa.

Once again, I have colored up two versions with my Copics and simply mounted them each on a bit of scrap dp paper, and then a white card base.  Today's weather is suppose to bright warm and sunny, so it would be a great playdate day!!
Have a great day!!!

Little Bo Peep

We received a light dusting of snow last night, so Spring has still not arrived here - sigh!!!  So today's card features a nice bright sunny card.  This is one of the newest releases from Wee Stamps that I just fell in love with.

Both versions of the cards were colored with Copics and mounted on paper from First Edition papers.  Prima flowers and machine stitching around the card add depth.
Hope your weather is better than what we are experiencing - have a wonderful day!!!

April Fool's Day Love

             Welcome to the newest challenge for One Crazy Stamper - the monthly challenge theme is Anything Goes with a twist - you must use an actual stamp, whether it's wood, acrylic, cling foam, etc  - but NO digital images are allowed!!
My first card this month uses a beautiful image from Wild Rose Studios called Teddy With Present, that I have colored with Copics.  To give the bear some texture I used the dirty rag technique, then added sparkle with Stardust Stickles to the center of the flowers, and glitter to the ribbon with a Sakura Stardust pen.

Big Flowers - E55, E57, E59

Baby Boy Welcome

Everyone loves babies, and the newest image from Wee Stamps celebrates the occasion.  I have colored the image with Copics, used dp from First Edition, and cloud dies from Memory Box.

Two versions again - light blonde hair and a medium brown haired version!
Wishing everyone a great day - I will spending the day hibernating as the snow is falling yet again, and the high for the day is only -10C - a great day to stay inside and create!

Wedding Bears

Wedding season is fast approaching and I have had several people ask me for cards that would fit the special occasion, so today's cards feature one of my favorite images.  This is Wee Stamps Mr and Mrs Teddy, that I have colored with Copics.   

I have completed two versions of the card, the only difference is one has a darker Mr Bear, and the quotes are also different.  The dp is from Simple Stories Generations collection and the flowers are from my stash.
