April Anything Goes

Friday, April 18, 2014


Hello and Happy Good Friday!!!!  As promised I have a special card to show you that I made using the Jelly Bean Nap stamp in a different way than just using it for Easter, check it out....
 As you can see I have changed the jelly beans and made them PEANUTS and then came up with a sentiment using my fonts to say "Go Nuts" to play off of the peanuts!

Here is a look at the inside where I used another House mouse stamp to accent as well....
Supplies Used:
*  Images:  House Mouse Designs, Jelly Bean Nap & Tiny Jumper
* Memento Inks: Tuxedo Black & Rich Cocoa
* Memory Box Die:  Floursish

Here is a close up of the image to get a better look at the peanuts and the Copic colours used....
 Copic Colours Used:
* Peanuts:  E35, E33, E31, E30
* Ground:  T4, T2, T0, 0
* Mouse Skin & Ears: E11,E00, RV00
* Mouse Fur:  T6, T4, T2, T0

Here is a look at my previous card as well as this card - as you can see I used the same layout on both cards to show you that this stamp is very versatile and not just for Easter!

I hope that you enjoyed today's card and I wish you and your family a safe and wonderful Easter weekend!

I would love to hear your thoughts about how I used this wonderful stamp!

Until Next Time, Keep Crafting!

So Precious!!

Hi Everyone;

It is another Wacky Wednesday and mother nature seems out of synch with the weather.  Sunday was a beautiful Spring Day and yesterday it snowed; it seems winter came back.  Wish Spring and Summer would hurry up and come -- I certainly hope that summer will not be as extreme as winter has been.

For today's post for One Crazy Stamper, I have used this adorable image from Wild Rose Studio called Bella Sleeping; a perfect image to welcome a new addition to a family.

Supplies used:
There is still plenty of time to play along at OCS's "Anything Goes Challenge" this month; please do not use a digital image for a change to win a YNS prize pack.  Also check out Lora's store OCS for some amazing products and prices.

Until next time, keep crafting!

Sensational Saturday has arrived, and today I'm sharing a creation using Olivia's happy day by C.C. Designs. I think this stamp is so cute and versatile, she can be used for any theme. A friend of mine is in Acapulco(so jealous!), so I made this with Mexico in mind. I coloured my image nice and bright and used my copics to add colour to the flowers. I also tucked in a tag adorned with ribbons, which is removable. Hope you all like it!

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.
