Wishing You


One of my all time favorite images today.  I first colored this adorable penguin a couple of years ago, and recently decided that it deserved to be reinked and redesigned, so.......


This cutie is a retired stamp from Wild Rose Studios, that I have colored with Copics, then added polar white Flower soft details to the hat.  After fussy cutting I placing it on the card front featuring paper from my stash.  The star die is from Memory Box and the Warm Wishes die is from Frantic Stamper.

This is Quilted Santa from Penny Black stamps, that I colored with Copic markers, then matted and mounted on to the card front.  The tree die is an older Marianne Designs Creatable, the sentiment is from Crafters Companion and then I added jute twine accents.

Animal Carols

Christmas is fast approaching - the time of family gathering and the age old tradition of caroling at your neighbors homes.  I think these two characters would be a welcome addition to any choir.


This is High Hopes Rubber stamps Mudzie and Chopper's Caroling available to purchase here at One Crazy Stamper.  I have colored the image with Copics, then mounted on paper from my stash.  The embossed kraft paper card front was created with a Cuttlebug embossing folder.

Baby Love

Big News this week - my daughter and her husband welcomed their first child into the world, so I am officially a grandmother to a beautiful baby boy!!!!

Today I'm showing you two wonderful baby cards I made earlier this year featuring images from La La Land stamps and paper from Carta Bella.  Both images were colored with Copic markers.

Christmas Banner

Here's another image that I have owned for a couple of years but never got the chance to stamp and color even though I adore it - it's penguins - what more do I have to say!!!


This is a Lili of the Valley image that unfortunately seems to be discontinued as I cannot find it on their site.  I have colored in with Copics, and then added Stampendous Frantage Shabby White Embossing Enamel for the look of snow.

Baking Time

In my home Christmas means baking - shortbread in many favors including Chia and lavender, ginger sparkles, ginger and cream cheese swirls, butter tarts, and so many others need to be baked with loving care.  Visitors are always greeted with many treats at this special time of year.


For today's card for One Crazy Stamper I have used the Mr & Mrs Claus from High Hopes rubber stamps.  I colored the image with Copics, added furry details with Stampendous white fun flock.  The sentiment is also from High Hopes rubber stamps available here, and was also colored with an R29 Copic marker.

Treasured Friends

I have always adored Whipper Snapper stamps, and now they are selling their images worldwide, so as soon as they became available I grabbed a few!!!!  Of course for those of you who know me, that means my newest collection is growing rapidly.


This is just one of several new images I just had to add -  it is entitled Winter Get Together.  I have colored it with Copics, then added Flower Soft Polar White and Liquid Embossing to create the look of snow.

A Kiss to Celebrate the Season


Time for a new challenge at One Crazy Stamper and this month we are looking for projects that are Christmas/Winter themed.  You can use any stamp except for digital images.  You have all month to join in the fun for a chance to win a fabulous prize from OCS.


This sweet image is Mooshie Steals a Kiss available at One Crazy Stamper here.  I have colored it with Copics, then fussy cut it and popped it up on the card front I created by inking a Cuttlebug embossing folder with Ranger Distress Antique Linen ink, then running in through my Cuttlebug.  The finishing touches are a wooden snowflake, twine, and a sentiment I did on my computer.
