Speedy Recovery!

Hello OCS Fans!
Today I'm sharing another card using a stamp from the new "Get Well" Collection over at High Hopes Rubber Stamps! Meet the adorable "Injured Bear". I'm not sure what kind of accident She was in but boy is she stylin' in that flowered hospital gown and hot pink cast LOL!
I was trying to look at my dies differently and see how I could use them in a different way. I decided to make the die into the card base rather than adding the cut piece to an already designed base. I made a 4.25 x 5.5 card in pink and then cut it out with the die. I just put the one edge of the die just off the paper so I would still have my fold. It turned into a cute stitched and scalloped card base. Then I added layers using paper from the Doodlebug French Kiss 6x6 collection. I fussy cut my image with my Brother Cut N Scan and then created a back piece for the image as well to give it a bit of definition.
I popped up my layered image with foam tape for added dimension to my card. I also added Glitter Pen to the metal parts on the wheel chair although it's hard to see in the picture.
I used the new HH "Speedy Recovery" sentiment and some of the leftover papers on the inside.
Copics Used:
Bear: E55, E57, E59, R22
Wheelchair: T1, T3, T5, T7, T8, T9/ Y32, Y34
Cast: RV04, RV06, RV09
Head Bandage: W1, W3, W5

Today's card was more of a simple design with the stamp as the focal point. I hope you liked it!
Happy Stamping!

Under The Weather

I am looking forward to Spring - the sun, blue sky and longer walks with my dog. Spring for me does have a downside though..... 
Past the mud my dog brings back in to the house - he's cute, he can be forgiven.. I suffer from allergies so Spring means allergies and spring colds. 
Anyone else with me? For me it is sniffles, sneezes and runny eyes. 

I can definitely relate to "Sick Bird" from the new Get Well Soon release. 
This will be me soon lol! 



After colouring this cutie up with alcohol markers I added some shading with Prismacolor pencils not only on the stamp but around the edge of it.  Silver gel pen was perfect for the umbrella handle. I cut him out using an oval die and set him aside. Next I chose some fun, bright paper from Lawn Fawn and cut it to size. I went around all my edges lightly with blue ink to give my edges some definition. I stamped the sentiment and went around the edge of it as well. Some ribbon and stitched clouds finish off my card.

My Head's an Achin' and My Tail's a Draggin'

Speaking of dragons, how cute is this adorable High Hopes image! This is Seymore's Sick Day and he is probably one of my FAVORITE images in the Get Well section of the website. Who can resist an adorable dragon?

The fun part about this stamp is picking out your favorite dragon color combos. This guy was my first attempt and he's quite bright! He works well, but my second attempt used a lighter, more yellow/green combination. I'll share that with you in an upcoming post.

Would Seymore look good in a fantastical purple/pink combo? Maybe I'll try that next...

Sentiment on this beauty is Open Get Well Soon.

Laid Up

Poor Cole seems to be in quite the predicament! If Cole lives where I do, then this injury may have happened by slipping on ice, or tobogganing! 
I have used this adorable "Cole's Laid Up" stamp to make a Get Well card for my stash. 




After colouring the adorable Cole with alcohol markers, I cut it out using a fun die from Gina Marie Designs. I set it aside and chose some patterned paper from Carta Bella. I cut my pieces to fit my finished 51/2 x 5/12 card base and cut a stitched tag to put my image on. Some ribbon and enamel dots finish off my card. 

Card Recipe 
Stamp: Cole's Laid Up - High Hopes Rubber Stamps
Sentiment: Back On Your Feet - High Hopes Rubber Stamps

Dragon - Sick Day

Welcome OCS Fans!
It's Wednesday, and so I'm happy to be posting this adorable little dragon to help put a smile on your face! I decided to make an Easel Card this week. The dragon I am using is called "Seymore's Sick Day" by High Hopes Rubber Stamps. It was stamped onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and then coloured in with Copic Markers. I then, fussy cut around the entire image.
To do the background behind the dragon, I cut out some Bristol Paper using my Cuttlebug and Lawn Fawn - Zig Zag Rectangle Stackables. Then used Spectrum Noir Aqua Markers to create the ground and shadow beneath the dragon. The clouds were done using Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Salty Ocean and I had created a stencil from Avery Elle - Custom Steel Dies - Pierced Clouds Die. Finally, I ran my little dragon through the Xyron machine and layered it on top of the background that I had created.
Close up of the Dragon:
For the sentiment I used "Tail Not Waggin / Get Well Soon" by High Hopes Rubber Stamps. I stamped the sentiment using VersaFine - Onyx Black and then embossed with Ranger - Clear Super Fine Detail Embossing Powder.
I completed card by using the Zig Zag dies again to cut out  a border around the coloured image and sentiment. Sentiment was popped up with some pop-up squares. Around the background papers, frames and sentiment I used Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Wilted Violet.
Background Paper, Recollections - Petite Floral - 12 x 12" (30.4 x 30.4 cm) and some flowers from my collection were then used to complete the card.
To make the Easel Card I just took a 5.5" x 12" piece of white cardstock and then scored at 6" and then on one of the 6" portions at 3". This allows the card to lay flat when mailing.

Card Recipe:

Dragon: YG01, YG03, YG13, YG17, Y15, Y17, Y18, V12, V04, V09
Hot Water Bottle: B32, B34, B37
Pill Bottle: E23, E25, C1, C2
Thermometer: C1, C2
Background: Ground: Spectrum Noir Aqua Markers - Terracotta, Sepia, Tan, Moss; Sky: Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Salty Ocean
Around card and borders: Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Wilted Violet
Background Paper: Recollections - Petite Floral - 12 x 12" (30.4 x 30.4 cm)
Die Cuts: Lawn Fawn - Zig Zag Rectangle Stackables; Avery Elle - Custom Steel Dies - Pierced Clouds
Added Tools: Cuttlebug, MISTI, Xyron, Tape Gun, Glue DOTS, Forever In Time - Pop-Dot Value Pack.

Shadow Box Card!

Welcome OCS Fans!
It's Tuesday again so that means it's my turn to post some inspiration for you! Today's card is called a "Shadow Box" card and it was easy and so fun to make! I followed along with Jennifer McGuire's Video and in no time I had this adorable card made! On the front of my card I am using the High Hopes "Teacup Pup".
Of course I had to use papers from the Doodlebug "Puppy Love" 6x6 collection! I mean it was a no brainer as they match my dog theme perfectly! I added a bit of Stickles to the dog bone for a fun element. The sentiment is also from HH and is called "Smiling". A nice brown bow finishes everything off.
Here you can see when you open up the card, a shadow box pops up on the inside. I created a cute little scene on the inside using High Hope's "Prancing Pup", "Puppy Pals" and the "Blossom Tree Branch". I added some inked clouds, Stitched Vally, Grassy Edge and a fence to help create my little scene. Of course the inside had to have sparkle too, so I added Stickles to the flower centres.
Here is a better view of the "shadow box" construction.
I love that the shadow box lays flat for mailing! I added some cute HH  paw prints using the "Cat and Dog Paws" stamp across my envelope flap.
Copics Used:
E50, E51, E53, E55, E57, E59
C00, C1, C3, C4, C5, C7, C9
R32, R35, R37, Y18, W1, W3


I think this is the most images I have ever used on one card LOL! 
Happy Stamping!

Welcome Baby

Hi there and spring is on the way!  It's been a very cold winter where I am and I am looking forward to seeing the end of it.
For today's card, I decided to make a baby card with the cute Baby Giraffe stamp and pair it with the New Addition sentiment.
I used an old toothbrush to spatter Picked Raspberry distress ink on white cardstock, then coloured and cut out the giraffe image and before adding sequins, I sponged in a small amount of Hickory Smoke Distress Ink for shading and then added some sequins.

Well Wishes

Happy Sunday, Everyone!

Welcome back to the One Crazy Stamper blog! I'm here today with some more inspiration for you, using the High Hopes Rubber Stamps Wishing Well.

This is a great, versatile image. I've used it for a get well card today, pairing it with the Get Well Wishes Script sentiment. However, this image can easily be used for thinking of you and for sending out general "well wishes". 


I dug into my selection of paper flowers to pretty this up layout up. I love how the colors blend well together and compliment the vines on my well.

Using Hockey Stamp on Sports Action Layout

Welcome OCS Fans;

Hi it's Bev here today and I am sharing a project for One Crazy Stampers using High Hopes Stamps. I also am thrilled to tell you that I will not be doing cards but scrapbook layout pages and some of the accents will be co-ordinating stamps for the themes of the projects. It should be great fun. So very proud as this page is my eldest son Chris and he played hockey in EC Lunen for a year and was the MVP for the year. The 2nd photo on the page also is so special because if you look close he is flying through the air in front of the net to score very much like the photo of Bobby Orr when he did the same thing. 





To start my project I stamped the image and then coloured it with copics to match the photo best I could. That is the wonderful thing with stamps and colouring... you can match up the team colours to meet your needs. I always highlight using signo white gel pen.
Using stamped images as accents are a perfect match for so many projects as they are available in so many themes.... and as they are reusable and colours can match any project they a great thing to add to any crafters collection.

Supplies used:
  • Stamps:  Sam's Big Play T511
  • Copic Markers: 0. C0, C01, C03, C5, C8, B000, B00, B02, B06, B24, B26, B27, R28, E00, E01, E55, E57, E59, W5, W7,    
  • Paper: Maja Design Life by the Sea
  • Other: signo white gel pen, cardstock, chipboard, ink, stickers

Get Well Soon!

Welcome OCS Fans;

I'm certainly glad that it is Friday and the weekend will soon be here.  It has been one those weeks, when nothing seems to have gone right.  To top it off, I wasn't able to find where I put a craft item that I wanted to use on today's card. Hopefully, I will eventually find it.

For today's card, I used this adorable English Rose from High Hopes Rubber Stamps.  After stamping the image on XPress It Blending Cardstock, I coloured it with copic markers using colours that I usually don't use.  I added some Nuvo Morning Dew Crystal Drops to the roses and on the die, which didn't quite work out the way I wanted.  Nuvo High Gloss White Crystal Drops was used in the corners.

Dear Spring......

I admit it, I'm winter weary and I have been thinking about Spring a lot! 
This week I decided to have some fun with my thoughts of Spring and make a card for Spring. Weird right?! but maybe if Spring knows how much it is loved it will think about coming a little earlier then usual....<wink> 

"Sitting Bee" and some fun spring coloured paper were perfect for my "thinking of you" card for Spring. 




I coloured this cutie with alcohol markers and hand fussy cut it leaving a thin white edge around the antennas. They were tough to cut and things went a little awry with the paper/scissor/knife combo I was using......sigh.........
Next I cut a piece of white card stock to size and cut a honey comb pattern die. I taped it on the cardstock using painters tape and used it as a stencil for my background. After I was done inking my background I added the sentiment using my Misit for perfect placement. 

All of the paper is lightly edged with antique linen Distress ink. 

Instead of throwing out my now blue honey comb pattern I decided it would be a perfect embellishment for this card along with some enamel dots and a pop of ribbon. I hope Spring likes her card and decides to come early!

Card Recipe 
Stamp: Sitting Bee - High Hopes Rubber Stamps
Sentiment: One Of Those Days - High Hopes Rubber Stamps
Patterned Paper: Spring Perfectly Plaid - Lawn Fawn

Tuxedo Black Memento ink, Misti, white gel pen, enamel dots - Gina Marie Designs, ribbon - stash, antique linen distress ink, honey comb pattern die - Whimsy
