Happy Gnome Day

You gotta love Gnomes on bad days and good and as the sentiment says " Keep calm Gnome Matter what".  Love, love, love all of the new gnome images from Stamping Bella and this one is definitely a favorite!!!


The image was colored with Copic sketch markers, and then placed between two borders that feature a My Favorite Things scallop die edge.  A nice clean and simple card design.

Twinkle a Little Fairy Dust


It's a cool drizzly day here in the Kootenay's so to brighten up the day I have created an adorable card with the colors of spring!

This sweet image is "Twinkle Fairy" from High Hopes rubber stamps, and can be purchased here at One Crazy Stamper.  I stamped the image on Copic Xpress It cardstock with My Favorite Things Cement Grey hybrid ink, then colored it with Copic markers, adding just a touch of Prismacolor pencils to deepen shadows and add highlights.  After fussy cutting the image and placing it on the card front, I created dots of sparkle and covered the wings with Ranger Frosted Lace Stickles.  The sentiment is also available at One Crazy Stamper, and is also part of the new release "A Magical Day".

Butterfly Memories

When I first saw the Butterfly images from Stamping Bella I just knew that they would be jumping into my shopping card - and I finally got them to play with.  This first card features Tiny Townie Butterfly Girl Babette who is actually my favorite of them all!


My vision for this card from the moment I saw the image was to make a sympathy card with this gorgeous girl.  The sentiment I chose to use could be used for sympathy, or words of encouragement, and is part of a set of sentiment from Stamping Bella available here.  I stamped the image on Copic Xpress It cardstock and then colored it with Copics and Prismacolor pencils.  The wings were covered with a coat of Wink of Stella clear, and there are tiny dots of Nuvo Crystal drops and Ranger Frosted Lace on some of the dots on the wings and flower centers.  Once the image was fussy cut, I adhered it to the card front that features Graphic 45 paper.  A touch of black ribbon and a small twinkle goosebump finishes off the card.

Dragon Imagination

Welcome to another Wednesday and my card for One Crazy Stamper.  The design team divas are showcasing the wonderful new release "A Magical Day" from High Hopes Stamps, and when I first saw these cute dragons I just couldn't wait to color them!!


This is "Dragon Pals" have I stamped with Cement Grey Memento Ink on to Copic Xpress it cardstock and then colored with Copics.  The dots on the large dragon were done with a green gel pen, and I used a clear Wink of Stella brush on the wings of all three characters.  The sentiment is also from High Hopes Stamps and is available here.  I inked the sky with Tumbled Glass distress ink, the hills were done with Bundled Sage, and the castle was inked with Hickory Smoke distress ink.  The stencils were from My Favorite Things and Tim Holtz ( the stone work on the castle ), and the castle is a die from My Favorite Things.

It's a Black and White Kind of Day

It's been one of those weeks and so for today's card I decided to challenge myself to an all black and white card - something I try to do at least once a year. I think this one turned out great!!

Gnomie Smile


It's been awhile since I colored with my Inktense pencil crayons so it was finally time to unzip the case and try them again.  Here's the result of playing with them.


This super cute card features two of the My Favorite Things Gnomes from the You Gnome Me stamp set and one of My Favorite Things die-namics  - Smile ( that will be available soon as it was the free die with purchase this past month from MFT).  I cut a piece of Doodlebug Design Dragon Tails paper and mounted it on to a piece of white foam, and then die cut the word giving some dimension to the card front.  The gnomes were colored with Inktense pencils, then fussy cut and popped up on the card.  The plaid flower was from my stash.   Love these little gnomes!!!

The image was stamped onto Copic Xpress It cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, then colored with Copic sketch markers.  I then added Prismacolor pencil colors to the highlights and shadows, and blended them out with Gamsol.  The bunnies have a layer of grey flocking powder over them to add some softness.  The sentiment was computer generated and the white dots in her eyes were done with a Sakura glaze pen.

Fluffle Hugs

Did you know that a group of bunnies is called a Fluffle?  Seemed fitting for this card to be entitled Fluffle Hugs!  I decided to make a fluffle of bunnies using the High Hopes Rubber stamp image "Flop Eared Rabbit (H013), by masking and stamping the image five times.  Gotta love fluffles!!


After the image was grouped together I colored them with Copic markers, and then added depth and highlights with Prismacolor pencils and Gamsol.  I then fussy cut the fluffle, and placed it on to a card front with a clear acetate panel, showcasing the patterned paper on the inside of the card.  The stamped sentiment is from one of my Stamping Bella images, and HUGS was cut with a My Favorite Things die.

Card Supplies - Copics - 100, T5, T8, T10, E11, E13, E15, E35, E37, E39, E41, E42, E43, E44, E50, E51, E53, R11

Hummingbird


The most difficult card to make and yet it's the one theme I get asked to create the most - a sympathy card.  Today's card for One Crazy Stamper didn't start out to be a sympathy card, but sometimes the biggest mistakes turn out beautifully.



This image is Hummingbird from High Hopes Stamps and is available to purchase here.  I stamped the image on Copic Xpress It cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, then colored the image with Copic markers.  The hummingbird itself was covered with Wink of Stella clear glitter.  After fussy cutting the image, I adhered it to the card front that I created with one single sheet of patterned paper.  The raised centre was created by carefully cutting the centre of the paper out, matting it and then raising it with pop up dots.  The sentiment is from my stash, and the pearls were created with a Viva Decor cream pearl pen.

Card recipe - Copies - B000, B01, B04, R14, R17, R27, BG72, BG75, BG96, BG90, BG93, YR23, YR27, Wink of Stella Clear, Viva Decor Pearl Pen

February Perpetual Calendar

Well February has been a busy month so far, with babysitting the grandchildren, and watching the progress on our new home, as walls are finally up, and loads of different trades are put in heating, plumbing and electrical.  Only a few more months to go and then we will be moving in!!!


Today's project is the next page for the perpetual calendar I designed using images from Crafts and Me.  The image was colored with Distress reinkers and a water brush, and then I added shimmer with a clear Wink of Stella brush.
Keep watching for the rest of the calendar pages that I will be posting soon.

Cowy Wishes

February has arrived with snow, snow, and more snow or at least it seems to be that way.  Maybe it's because this is the first winter spent in the Kooteney's of British Columbia, and I don't remember this much snow in Alberta ever!!  Lots of snow means lots of crafting time and it's the first day of a new month, so it's time to showcase a card designed for One Crazy Stamper.  This month the design team will be showcasing some of the older High Hopes rubber stamps that we love!


My card this month features the adorable "American Cowthic" available to purchase here.  I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto Copic Xpress It cardstock, and then colored the image with Copics.  I added depth and highlights with Prismacolor pencils and Gamsol, then masked the image so that I could use distress inks to make the background.  The wood frame and sign for the sentiment were created with a C.C. Designs die, which I added streaks of brown Copic marker to make the wood more life like.  The sentiment was computer generated.  All of the paper edges except for the wood elements were distressed with the Prima Comfort Distress Tool.

Distress inks - Broken China, Peacock Feathers
Prismacolor pencils - 1031 Henna, 947 Dark Umber, 949 Silver, 935 Black, 938 White

Caroling Canadians


I'll admit it - I'm a bit of a planner, so I make Christmas cards year round in the hopes that I will have a stack to send out come December.  Of course it never fails though - I get a bunch made and someone buys them all in November so once again I have none - sigh!  


This card features one of my all time favorite images from High Hopes Rubber Stamps because who doesn't love a moose and a beaver!  This is Mudzie and Chopper's Caroling (S205) available here.  I stamped the image on watercolor paper with Versafine Onyx Black ink, then colored it with Inktense pencils and a water brush.  All of the edges of the papers were distressed with the Prima Comfort Distress Tool and then inked with a Antique Linen ink pad.  The treble clef die is from my stash, and the sentiment was printed right on the ribbon - bonus!!
