For today's post for One Crazy Stamper I decided to create something a little different.  This card features three different stamp images from different companies but they all came together beautifully.

I started this card by stamping the High Hopes Rubber stamp Forest on to water color paper with Versa Mark embossing ink, and then white embossing powder was applied and heated.  Once that was finished I used Inktense pencils to color the card front.  A sentiment from Crafter's Companion and the Santa and sleigh image from my stash finished off the front.  I added some clear glitter glue to the snow and trees to add some sparkle.

Card Recipe - Inktense pencils -0840 Iron Blue, 0900 Iris Blue, 1510 Beech Green, 1310 Iron Green, 2110 Payne's Grey, 1900 Willow

Another Penguin

Finally!!!  This sweet image is a digital image that was one of the first digis I purchased, and today I am finally done coloring it and making it into a card!

This sweet image is from a company called Angels Landing(Images © Judi Maddigan for and is part of a set of adorable penguins!  I bought the images years ago and unfortunately I can't find the company anymore - if anyone has any information on the company please let me know.

I colored the image with Copic markers, then fussy cut it, before placing it on the card front that also features a Find It Trading Company die, and a sentiment from My Favorite Things.

Mistletoe Penguins

Have you ever colored an image with one patterned paper in mind, and then changed the entire concept of the card?   This card has taken me three days of hmmmm do I like it with this paper, or that paper, or maybe I should change it up completely.  In the end though I absolutely love this card!!!

This adorable image is Penguins Under the Mistletoe from Whimsy Stamps, and if you follow me you know that I love all of the penguins that Crissy Armstrong does for Whimsy Stamps!  I stamped the image on Copic Xpress It cardstock with My Favorite Things Hybrid Extreme Black ink, and then colored it with Copics and Prismacolor Pencils.  Touches of white Sakura Glaze pen added the white highlights.  The sentiment is also from Whimsy Stamps - Winter Notables 1 Sentiments(an older stamp).  The gorgeous die framing the Penguins is from Find It Trading company - I don't remember the name though as it is part of stash.

I am entering this card into the first Whimsy Stamps and Inspiration Facebook Challenge!

Gopher Greetings to You

Who doesn't love an adorable little gopher wishing you a very Sparkly Christmas!!!  I just had to color up this cutie from High Hopes Rubber Stamps newest release Woodsy Christmas.

This is Christmas Gofer that I colored with Copic markers.  After fussy cutting the image I added sparkle with touches of a silver glitter pen, white highlights with a Sakura glaze pen, 3D berries made with white and red pearl pens, snow with Liquid Embossing, some fun flock on the hat, and then to finish off the whole image I sprayed it with Shimmer Spritz (sure wish the glitter showed on this photo). 

The sentiment is also from High Hopes Rubber stamps and is available here.  A red snowflake cut using an older Memory Box die from my stash finishes off the card front.

Sweet Holiday Wishes

Christmas is just around the corner so it's time to get cards completed for the season.  

Today I am sharing an adorable card featuring an older Inkadinkado image that has been collecting dust in my collection.  I have colored the image with Copic markers and then used a My Favorite Things sentiment and die to make the card front.  Some red ribbon and jingle bells finish off the card.

Blue Christmas

Happy Halloween everyone!! 

It's time for me to show you another one of the new release images from High Hopes Rubber Stamps, and this time around I have not done any coloring!!

This beauty was created by stamping the Wreath (TT167) image on to Copic Xpress It cardstock with VersaMark embossing ink, and then covering the image with clear embossing powder.  After heat setting the image I then used Mermaid Lagoon, Peacock Feathers, and Blueprint Sketch distress inks to create the background color.  The Merry Christmas sentiment is also from the newest Woodsy Christmas release and can be purchased here.  Some randomly place dots of white created with a Sakura white gel pen, and a touch of Star Dust Stickles finish off the card front.

Christmas Trio

Wednesday has come again, so it's time for me to share my latest creation for One Crazy Stamper.  The new release Woodsy Christmas has arrived at the store, and is available for purchase, but alas Canada Post is slow in getting my stamps to me so....... in the meantime I have an older image to share with you all.

This image is Three Pane Christmas from High Hopes Rubber stamps that I have stamped on to Copic Xpress It cardstock with Memento ink, and then colored with my Copic sketch markers.  Once I fussy cut the image out, it was placed on a card front that features an older Cuttlebug embossing folder, some Carta Bella paper, and a My Favorite Things sentiment.

Card Recipe - E00, E01, E11, E23, E25, E27, E40, E42, E43B02, R20, R29, R39, R59, 100, 0, Y23, Y28, G24, G29, C2, BG0000
