Shake Your Ba-Donkey-Donk!


Hi There,

I’m excited to tell everyone that I’ve been accepted as a Card Designer for One Crazy Stamper High Hopes Stamps. Yay!!!

Today I’m sharing a birthday card that I made using a combination of High Hope Rubber Stamps – Party Donkey S113, Brayden’s Backside T066 and Warm Wishes S016. When I first saw the 2 donkey stamps, I knew just what I was going to do with them and it made me giggle just thinking about it! LOL! I hope that you get a giggle too!

I coloured in the High Hope Rubber Stamp – Party Donkey S113 on the front of the card and the fussy cut around the stamp. The cake is from the High Hopes Warm Wishes S016 stamp. I stamped it out and then fussy cut around it. I made the little flames using some spare yellow cardstock.

Here is a close up of Party Donkey.

 

On the inside of the card, I decided to have some fun with the High Hopes – Brayden’s Backside T066. I stamped out the full image and then just the back haunches and tail. I coloured in both images and then fussy cut around them both. I attached the haunches using an Activation Wobble Spring. When you bring it to one side or the other. The butt shakes back and forth! LOL!

Happy 80th Birthday – Queen for a Day


Sharing a card that I made a few years back for a very sweet lady who turned 80 and doesn’t look a day over 70. I wish I could look as good as her at her age. LOL!

Here is the inside of the card.

To make the card I used Art Impressions Stamps U4251 – Beauty in Progress  for the front of the card and Art Impressions Stamps Popcards – 4859 – Oldie PopCard for the inside. Both images were stamped with Memento – Tuxedo Black ink using my MISTI onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card and then coloured with a mixture of Copic and Spectrum Noir alcohol markers.
