Cast Away!

Happy Tuesday OCS Fans!
Meet "Anthony James" from High Hopes Rubber Stamps! This adorable stamp reminds me of my Nephew when he was little at the Cottage. My Dad would take him to a small stream attached to a lake and let him fish. The sunfish were plenty and would bite often. It was perfect because young children don't have the patience to sit all day waiting for a bite.  Now they weren't very big fish but I bet if you ask my Nephew he's say they were huge LOL!
My design today is very simple with just a few paper layers. I used Designer paper from the CC Designs "Hearts and Dots and the YNS "Summer Plaid" 6x6 collection. A bit of natural twine and some Black Diamond Stickles on his buttons finish off my design.
Here's the decorated inside using more of the designer papers and a sentiment from the High Hopes "Sentiment Set #1".
Copics Used:
Skin: E00, E04, E11, E21, E20
Hair & boots: E44, E47, E49
Outfit: YG93, YG95, YG97, YG99/ YR02, YR04, YR06/ Y21
Pole: E35, Silver Wink of Stella, N6
Fish: C0, BG57, BG78, BG96

Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Stamping!

Hangin With My Peeps

It's the start of a new week and I'm back with a post for the One Crazy Stamper blog where we are continuing the June Birthday theme. I love the High Hopes Chick stamps and here's another one and isn't that sentiment just perfect for the image!  
It's a good thing these are stamps and not the real birds... I'm not a big fan of chickens.  Every time I think about a chicken, I remember being a kid on the farm and having to go pick eggs in the coop and I was absolutely terrified of those birds.  I always thought they were going to pick me so I remember lifting them up by the tail feathers to get the eggs.  Funny how those things stick with you for years.

Purrfect Day!

Happy, Happy Sunday!

First of all, I hope all the Fathers celebrating out there have a terrific day.

Do I have a Father's Day card for you today? No, I do not. Today I've got the purr-birthday card for you, featuring Sitting Kitty with Posey.

Kitty has been colored up and fussy cut for this card. I used my background frame die and then cut extra piece in different patterns to add some color and interest. The large square was a perfect fit for the Hoping Your Day sentiment.

Check out the inspiration at One Crazy Stamper! Our design team posts new inspiration daily on the One Crazy Stamper blog, so don't forget to stop by often!

I hope you have a wonderful Sunday.

Lizabeth Birthday Wishes

A couple of weeks ago, I had the privilege of attending a card making class with my fellow DT Bev. We did 4 amazing fun fold cards one of which was an easel card. I haven't made an easel card for a while so it was a good reminder that I need to make more! It also reminded me that I wanted to try making a shaped easel card as well. 
I wanted to use Lizabeth Biking Angel on a Birthday card so I decided to put her on a circle easel card just for fun. 

I coloured Lizabeth with alcohol markers and Prismacolor pencils and cut her out using a pleated circle die and put a piece of matching card stock behind it. Some sparkly Stickles were perfect for her wings. 
 I cut the same pieces for the base and set them aside. Next I cut the base for my card and a piece of patterned paper slightly smaller then the base edge for both the top and bottom. 
Next I stamped and cut my sentiment, mounted it on a piece of matching card stock and popped it up with foam squares - this holds my top piece in place acting like a stopper. 
A cotton lace bow and some flowers finish off my card.

Card Recipe 
Stamp: Lizabeth Biking Angel - High Hopes Rubber Stamps
Sentiment: Happy Birthday Script - High Hopes Rubber Stamps
Patterned Paper: Spring Fling - Echo Park 
Tuxedo Black Memento ink, Hammermill digital cover stock, pleated circle die - Gina Marie Designs, Star Dust Stickles, cotton lace ribbon - stash, flowers - Poppies and Prairie, 3D foam squares - Forever In Time

Spectrum Noir Markers: FS9 IG3 IG5 TN3 TN5 TN6 CG1 DG2 CT1 CT4 AP1 AP3 PA2 GB1 GY1 GY5
Copics: E00 E11 BG11 BG13 BG15 C00 
Prismacolours: Light Aqua, Aquamarine, Cobalt Turquoise, Pink, Blush Pink, Deco Pink

Oh Sheep! I Forgot Your Birthday!

Welcome One Crazy Stamper Fans!

It’s Wednesday, and I’m back to share another belated birthday card that I made using She-Baa Sheep (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) and Dunno Ducky (High Hopes Rubber Stamps). I had a lot of fun pairing these two stamps together.

On the inside of the card, I thought it would be funny to use the Dunno Ducky stamp. I just think he's so adorable and his body language says it all!

All of the sentiments were typed in Microsoft Word and then printed out on my printer. Fonts and sizes are listed below. I fussy cut around the phrases for the front of the card and then popped them up.

I love High Hopes Rubber Stamps, because they have so many stamps that you can play with to create combos like this one.

Card Recipe:

Stamps:  She-Baa Sheep (High Hopes Rubber Stamps), Dunno Ducky (High Hopes Rubber Stamps)

Paper: Doodle Bug Designs Inc. - Down on the Farm - 6" x 6" paper pad, Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card

Surfer Dude!

Happy Tuesday Everybody!
So Tuesday means it's my turn to post some inspiration over on the One Crazy Stamper Blog! With summer right around the corner, I thought "Bob's A Surfer Dude" from High Hopes was perfect for my post today. I have to admit Bob makes it look easy! When we were in Hawaii we took surfing lessons and lets just say I better just stay with card making a surfer LOL. It was a disaster! I don't think I even made it upright once! Hubby on the other hand was a natural!
I am using paper from an older Carta Bella 6x6 collection called "Beach Days". I coloured Bob and then paper pieced his swim shorts and surf board with paper from the pad. Then I used my Brother Cut N Scan to fussy cut out the image. I decided Bob needed to be on an action wobble for a bit of fun!
Here you can see the action wobble and some of the dimension I added to the card using foam squares!
I decorated the inside and added a sentiment from the "Sentiment Set #4" that matches my card theme perfectly!

Here's a short clip of Bob in action!
Copics Used:
Skin: E00, E21, E95, R20
Hair: E31, E35, E47, E49, E57
Glasses: B28, B29
Waves: BG0000, BG000, BG01, BG02, white gel pen

Hang ten and.....
Happy Stamping!

Happy Bird Day!

Hello Everyone! I'm happy to be sharing another fabulous Sunday with you and the fine stamps of High Hopes Rubber Stamps.

This year happens to be a milestone birthday year. Which means, many of my friends are celebrating the same magical number. One of them is going to get a smile on their birthday face when this Birthday Buzzard lands in their mailbox!

The image was paired with the Happy Bird Day sentiment. This sentiment is straight, but has enough spacing that you can chop it up to make it work with the space you have available. Here, I thought it needed a quick hit of color, so I used my distress crayon to give it a matching hue. 

Don't forget that the One Crazy Stamper team posts daily inspiration here on the One Crazy Stamper blog, so don't forget to stop by often!

I hope you have a wonderful Sunday.
