Mother's Day Waddles

Mother's Day is just around the corner! This month the High Hopes and One Crazy Stamper design teams are presenting thoughts of spring with our cards.
For me, one of the things that spring brings with it is a day to celebrate my Mom, my mother in law and a few other very special women who are an important part of my life. 

Waddles and her clan are perfect for a Mother's Day card for one of these Mom's especially because a couple of them are animal lovers through and through.



I coloured the stamp with alcohol markers and did some shading with Prismacolor pencils. Next I cut out these cuties with a stitched rectangle die. Paper from Echo Park helped me put my vision together with flowers and stripes. The sentiment was created on my computer and cut and mounted on matching card stock. Some ribbon from my stash and flowers from Poppies and Paperie finish off my card. 

Card Recipe 
Stamp: Waddles - High Hopes Rubber Stamps
Sentiment: Computer
Patterned Paper: Hello Easter, Dots and Stripes - Echo Park

Tuxedo Black Memento ink, Misti, flowers - Poppies and Paperie, ribbon - stash, stitched rectangle die - Your Next Stamp

Spectrum Noir Markers: CT1 CT4 GB5 LY1 LY2 LY3 PP1 PP3
Copics: E31 E34 E77 

Primacolor Premier Pencils: Jade Green, Charteuse, Cream, Deco Yellow, Jasmine, 10% Cool Grey, 30% Cool Grey, White

Spring Is In the Air!

Happy Tuesday OCS Peeps!
"Spring Is In the Air" and boy do I wish I could get into the garden like the High Hopes "Gardener Bunny"! We moved into a new development last June and we still don't have our grass or any flower beds yet. I know it's a bit early here in Ontario, but I sure would like to play in the garden!
You could certainly use "Gardener Bunny" for an Easter card as well. I chose to use papers from the Doodlebug "Hoppy Easter" 6x6 collection. I added lots of paper layers and tilted some of them for a different look. Sine I love my Copic Markers, that is what I used to colour my image.
I always like to add dimension to my cards. I like to pop ups the different layers with foam squares. I think it makes everything stand out better!
Copics Used:
Bunny: C00. C0. C1, C3, R01
Outfit: V22, V25, V28, Y15, Y18, RV17, RV19
Carrots: G28, G46, YG17, YG23 / YR04, YR07, YR09
Hat: E50, E51, R53, E55
Hoe: E44, E47, Silver Wink of Stella


Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Stamping!

Pelican's Post

Hi there and here we are at the start of a new week.
For today's card, I am using Pelican's Post which is an older image from High Hopes.  I've had it for a long time but never had a chance to use it - I always say I like to let my stamps cure!  Anyway, we moved a couple years ago and ever since I was asked to join the One Crazy Stamper design team, I have been rooting around trying to find some of my stamps.  Finally I had a bit of success and found three but there's a few more so I'll probably obsess about that until I find them.  At any rate, I've always liked this stamp so am happy to finally use it.
You can find lots of inspiration from the Design Team Divas at the One Crazy Stamper blog, and the One Crazy Stamper Facebook Fan page plus you can also follow us on Instagram, Twitter and Pinterest.

Easter Treats

Happy Sunday Everyone!! I hope you had an outstanding week.

Easter is right around the corner, so I decided to make for you today a couple of Easter treat bags using Small Easter Bunny. This cutie comes in a larger size as well, but I thought the smaller size was perfect for my project.

The first treat bag is a simple design with no sides on it. It's basically a long piece of cardstock scored into a triangular shape, with an extra flap to close the bag up. The wrapped treat has been stapled to the front panel. I put a magnet closure in it to make it easy to reuse, if you like.


The second treat bag is fully enclosed. The top ties shut with the ribbon closure, making it perfect for many Easter treats, from wrapped to unwrapped. This treat holder also uses the High Hopes Script Easter Greetings sentiment.


Here they are side by side. For those of you interested in copic colors, I used C00, C0, C1, C3 and C5 for my rabbits, with a little RV10 on their nose and inside their ears. And, I used E33, Y21, Y23 and YR23 for the floppy Easter hat. The rest of the colors can be planned to match your project. 








Have a terrific end to the weekend and a beautiful week!

Springtime JOy

Spring is here and my dog has Moe has his "spring beans" as I call them. It is like the whole winter he has saved his energy so when spring arrives he becomes my wild child. Everything is done with a spring in his step and his chest pushed out like he owns the world. 

When I had my horse it was the same thing. First day out in the field was a challenge for him to decide ......do I stop and eat grass or run around my field bucking and kicking............

The playful goats stamp reminds me of the pent up energy that my dog has - you know the kind......when all you want to do is run, play and kick up your heels! 



After colouring my stamp with alcohol markers and Prisma pencils I hand fussy cut it. I wanted to put the goat on the left that is bucking on an action wobble so I cut him out completely. The mini action wobble is literally the width of his body so I had to be very precise with my placement but it sure adds a fun element! 
I wanted to keep my layout more to the CAS side of card making to keep the focus on this fun stamp, so I grabbed some blue check paper and some white card stock andcut a circle out of if. I  the card stock in to my Misti and placed the sentiment and stamped it. 
All of the paper is edged with antique linen distress ink, stitched clouds popped up with foam dots and some enamel dots finish off my fairly CAS design.

Card Recipe 
Stamp: Playful Goats - High Hopes Rubber Stamps
Sentiment: Springtime Joy Script - High Hopes Rubber Stamps
Patterned Paper: Piggy Tales 

Tuxedo Black Memento ink, Misti, 3D foam pop dots - Forever In Time, mini action wobble, circle die - Spellbinders, stitched cloud die - YNS, antique linen distress ink, enamel dots - Carta Bella

Spectrum Noir Markers: IG1 IG3 IG5 RB1 RB2 1B4 CT1 CT4 GB5 PP1 PP3 AG1 AG3 AG5

Primacolor Premier Pencils: Beige Sienna, Sienna Brown, Sepia, Grass Green, Sap Green Light, Dark Green
