Gone Fishing – Father’s Day


Welcome One Crazy Stamper Fans!

It’s Wednesday, and I’m back to share a second Father’s Day card this week that I made for my dad using Bear (High Hopes Rubber Stamps), Bait Shop (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) and Bob Hooked a Big One (High Hopes Rubber Stamps). My dad is an avid Fisherman and from the time he retired years ago, there are very few weeks that go by without him fishing, including winter. LOL!

On the front of my card, I used Bob Hooked a Big One (High Hopes Rubber Stamps). I then fussy cut around the image and mounted it onto some green cardstock and used my Cricut Explore to cut out the lettering.

For the inside of the card, I wanted to try something different and decided to make a pop-up card which I did in several stages.

Stage 1: I cut some green cardstock 12 x 6″ and then mounted 6 x 6″ piece from 49 and Market Tattered Garden onto one half of it. Next, I scored the paper in half and used Stampendous – Pop-Up Stage Die set to cut 3 pop-up levels as seen in the image below. Then I cut just a little off of each side and mounted the die cut piece onto some brown cardstock, cut 12 x 6″. I then used some double-sided pop-up tape to mount the Bait Shop – Bait Shop (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) and some double-sided tape to mount the bear – Bear (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) as well.

Here is a close-up of the Bear and Bait Shop.

Stage 2: To create the scene of the bear going through the grass, I used Lawn Fawn – Grassy Hillside Borders. I cut several pieces in various greens and then measured the back pieces to the pop-up that I created earlier. Cutting them at .5 in., 1 in. and 1.5 in. in the centre to fit around the pop-up. I also used some double-sided tape to pop up a few of the die cuts.

Stage 3: Lastly, I typed up an old saying for dad’s on my computer, printed it out and die cut it using Your Next Stamp – Stitched Rectangle Die Set (YNSD214).

Here is how the inside looks all finished.

Card Recipe:

Stamps:  Bear (High Hopes Rubber Stamps), Bait Shop (High Hopes Rubber Stamps), Bob Hooked a Big One  (High Hopes Rubber Stamps)

Paper: 49 and Market Tattered Garden – 6 x 6 Collection Pack, Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card, Brown Cardstock, Various Green Cardstocks, Fish Paper

Oh Sheep! I Forgot Your Birthday!


Welcome One Crazy Stamper Fans!

It’s Wednesday, and I’m back to share another belated birthday card that I made using She-Baa Sheep (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) and Dunno Ducky (High Hopes Rubber Stamps). I had a lot of fun pairing these two stamps together.

On the inside of the card, I thought it would be funny to use the Dunno Ducky stamp. I just think he’s so adorable and his body language says it all!

All of the sentiments were typed in Microsoft Word and then printed out on my printer. Fonts and sizes are listed below. I fussy cut around the phrases for the front of the card and then popped them up.

I love High Hopes Rubber Stamps, because they have so many stamps that you can play with to create combos like this one.

It’s Pasture Birthday!


Welcome One Crazy Stamper Fans!

It’s Wednesday, and I’m back to share a card that I made using Farmer Clem (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) on the front of the card and Charlie Party Cow (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) on the inside.

I coloured in Farmer Clem (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) and then fussy cut around him and popped him up on the front of the card. All of the sentiments were created in Microsoft Word and then printed out on my printer. Details are below.

 

For the inside of my card, I stamped the Charlie Party Cow (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) twice and then fussy cut around both of the cows to make it look like they had a party going on. I popped up the one cow image to give the scene a little bit of depth.
