Snow Bear Christmas

Hello One Crazy Stamper Fans! I hope you are enjoying the new "Woodsy Christmas" release as much as I am! 
Today I am honoured to introduce you to "Snowbear Friends". 
When I was a child we loved to help set up and decorate the Christmas tree! We were allowed to help with the decorations but the star on top was the special job of one of my parents - usually my Mom. Even when we were tall enough to do it, my Mom was the one who put the "finishing touch" on the tree. 
I love the memories that this stamp brings back! 




After stamping and colouring my stamp with alcohol markers and Prisma pencils, I cut it out using a stitched scallop rectangle die. Some gold Wink of Stella and Star Dust Stickles were added to the ornaments on the tree. Liquid Applique gives some fun texture to their hats. I set it aside and cut a piece of white card stock to fit my card size and cut a stitched edge using a border die. Next I added some matching plaid paper and glued everything down. I stamped my sentiment and added it to matching card stock. 
Some twine, a gold bell that jingles - fun right? and a few gumdrops  finish  off  my card.

Stamp: Snowbear Friends - High Hopes Rubber Stamps
Sentiment: Merry Christmas - High Hopes Rubber Stamps

You can't tell from the photos but I also added Spectrum Noir Clear Glitter pen to all the bow and ribbons. The sentiment is called "Happy Holidays".
I used the HH sentiment called "Magic of Christmas" on the inside along with some more of the EP paper.

Merry Christmoose!

I love making Christmas cards that are personalized for the person receiving them. 
I have a few guys on my card giving list who love the outdoors - hiking, wildlife and even camping in the winter. So masculine Christmas it is ....gulp! 
I decided "Winter Moose" would be perfect for an outdoorsy themed, masculine card for one of the outdoorsy guys in my life. 



After stamping my moose on some coloured pencil friendly paper, I coloured him using Prismacolor pencils. I am new to colouring with pencils so this was a challenge for me. I hand fussy cut him and ran a black marker around the edge to "finish" him off. Next, I created my scene with cardstock, patterned paper and dies. Love my Misti for perfect stamping position for my sentiment! 
Some simple gumdrops finish off this CAS masculine Christmas card. 

Card Recipe 
Stamp: Winter Moose- High Hopes Rubber Stamps
Sentiment: Merry Christmoose - High Hopes Rubber Stamps
Patterned Paper: Frosted - Kaisercraft 

Tuxedo Black Memento ink, Misti, gumdrops - YNS, Classic Circle die - Spellbinders, My Creative Time die, Fresh Pine Trees die - Memory Box 

Prismacolor Premier Pencils: Dark Umber Dark Brown Light Umber Bronze Chocolate Beige Sienna Peach Beige Deco Peach Blush Pink Pink Jasmine Cream Olive Green Apple Green Spring Green Periwinkle Powder Blue 10% French Grey 30% French Grey White

Blue Bird

Hard to believe but Christmas is just a short few weeks away, so I have been busy creating cards for the occasion.  Today's card is just one of many!


I got creative with this image entitled Blue Birdy (PP001) from High Hopes Rubber Stamps,by using it as the main focal point of the card, and also to create the patterned paper on the top of the card.  I stamped the image lightly in three colors to coordinate with the designer paper I picked, and then stamped the image with Memento Ink, and colored the image with Copics.  The addition of some Stampendous Fun Flock to the fur details finished off the image.

Card Recipe - Copics - B34, B37, B39, YR04, YR09, V04, V06, V09


Double the Fun!

Hello OCS Fans!
I was looking through my High Hopes Stamps and trying to figure out how I could use them differently. When I saw the "Baby Giraffe" the whole "twin" idea came to mind.
I stamped one giraffe and then masked her off and added the second image. I coloured my "Baby Giraffe's" to match my Designer Papers. I added some matching twine, bows and each giraffe has some glitter pen on their noses and feet.
I fussy cut out my images and popped them up with foam squares for dimension!
I used some of the paper scraps to decorate the inside and added the "Ten Little Phrase" on the inside!

Copics Used:
E21, E23, E25, E27
BG10, BG11, BG13, BG15
R81, R83, R85, RV10

Happy Stamping!

Just for fun -- Happy Halloween!


Hi there, I'm back once again.  :) 
This is one of my favorite stamp sets for Halloween. This mini set is the sweetest for Halloween fun, I like using making Cupcake toppers with this set but today I decided to make a Halloween Haunted House using ….
My witch, pumpkin and Frank were coloured with Copic markers and fussy cut. I added a 
gauze type material and some Halloween glitter to the base of this scene.  The house is a die cut and it will actually hold some candy inside, I will have to add some sweets  closer to Halloween. 
Thank you for peeking in today!

Peeking Bear Welcome

 I don't have many welcome new baby cards in my stash so when I saw this adorable stamp from High Hopes I knew I had to colour it and make a card for my stash. 
No one in my immediate future will need this card (that I know of) but I love this adorable bear and her/his rattle. You can colour it in boy, girl or in a case where I don't know the gender in yellows and greens. How fun would this be as a gift tag hmmm...... 





I coloured this sweet bear with alcohol markers and hand fussy cut it leaving a thing white edge. I found some paper from Carta Bella and cut it to size.
I added a cardstock circle with stitch marks and a lacey frame behind the bear, stamped and cut the sentiment and added it to some matching polka dot paper. 
Some wood hearts and gumdrops finish off my card.

Hockey Greetings

It's been a crazy week - I spent last week in Calgary teaching classes, visiting friends and hitting all of my favorite restaurants!!  I was going to return home to the Kootenays today, but thankfully I was watching the weather forecast and knew I had to make the long drive home yesterday - good thing as Calgary was hit with a big dump of snow today - up to 35 cm in parts of the city!! 


For today's post I colored up "Goalie Gregg" P025 from High Hopes Rubber Stamps with my Copic sketch markers and then mounted it on a card that I created with just colored cardstock.  The sentiment is hand written.

Card Recipe - E00, E01, E11, E21, E23, E25, E27, E33, E35, E37, B24, B26, R24, R27, R29, N1, N3, N4, N10

Annie's Bushel

Hi OCS Friends!
This past weekend I attended an Apple & Cheese Festival in a small town close to me! There were all kinds of things "apple", lots of crafts and things for the kids to do. As we were driving there I saw some beautiful orchards and the trees were full of apples. There were workers in the fields picking the apples. It reminded me of the High Hopes "Annie's Bushel" stamp and I thought it would be perfect for my post today!
I chose paper from the Echo Park  "Autumn Blessings" collection.  I added some coordinating ribbon, bow and glitter pen to the red areas to finish off my card. I used the High Hopes sentiment called "If Friends Were Apples".
Copics Used:
Skin: E00, E21, E11, R20
Hair: N3, N7
Bushel: E43, E44, E47
dress: YG63, YG67, C1
Apples: R37, R39
Shoes: N4, N5, N7

Happy Stamping!
