It's Been a Blast!!!

Today marks the end of a wonderful time for me at One Crazy Stamper as part of the design team.  Unfortunately times have changed, and I find myself with too many commitments and just not enough hours in the day.  I have recently gone back to school, updating my skills in order to get back out in the work force, and will soon be looking for a full time job, so I have had to make the difficult decision to step down as a member of the design team.  My time with One Crazy Stamper and it's wonderful owner, Lora, has been a blast, and maybe in the future I will get back to coloring and creating, but for now, this will be my last official card!

Today's card features the super cute image Team Canada from High Hopes Rubber Stamps, that I have colored with my trusty Copic Sketch markers, then mounted on card stock and added a Canadian themed ribbon as a border to complete the card.

Old Guys Rule!

Once I started making Father's Day cards I seemed to get on a roll - actually completed four different styles, and today's card for One Crazy Stamper is one of the four!

This adorable image from Art Impressions called Old Guys Rule, is so hilarious, and could be used as either a Father's Day card, or just a card for the special guy in your life's special day.  I colored the image with my trusty Copic markers then mounted it on paper from My Mind's Eye.  The sentiment is included with the image.

Tool Time!!

Only one more day until we celebrate the special guy in our life's, our Dad's!
My card today features an adorable image from Stampavie that I have colored with Copics and then mounted on dp from My Mind's Eye.

The sentiment is computer generated, and the screw brad is from the local big box craft store.  I have also added some metallic details by painting Smooch Top coat Illuminate over all of the grey tools.

Celebrate Dads!!

The countdown is on for another big day of celebration, and this time it's Dad's turn to shine.  That's right Father's Day is only a few days away, so for my card today for One Crazy Stamper, I have colored up a fabulous image!

June Love

The month of June has arrived and traditionally this is wedding month.  My card today features an image that could easily be used for a wedding, anniversary or just to celebrate love!  This month's challenge theme over at One Crazy Stamper is Anything Goes with the added twist of ribbon and glitter.

The image is from High Hopes stamps and is entitled Ryan and Ansley.  I have colored the image with Copics, then used clear Stickles to add glitter to the flower petals and the heart of the little girl mouse's outfit.  The center of the flowers have brown tinsel glitter to also add shine.  After fussy cutting the image, I layered it on ribbon that was wrapped around the card front that features an embossed pattern called Smooch, by Couture Creations.
