Spring is here!


Welcome One Crazy Stamper Fans!

It’s Wednesday, and I’m back to share these adorable hedgehogs who are so excited to smell the beautiful spring blossoms growing on the trees. I used Hedgies Spring Loaded (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) to create the scene. I added a little bit more to the tree off to the side.

I thought it would be fun to try colouring this stamp using various watercolour mediums and brushes.

I started off by stamping the image onto Arches Watercolour Paper, 140 lb. Cold Press.

Then I used a mixture of Spectrum Noir Aqua Markers, Tim Holtz Distress Inks, Derwent Watercolour pencils and a paint palette.

I created the clouds by using a cotton ball and soaked into a little bit of water and then tapping it onto the paper to lift some of the watercolour. Finally, I used Pigma Micron 02 Archival Ink Pen to outline the flowers and the Hedge Hogs. For the noses, I used a Sakura Glaze – Black Pen.

Supplies Used:

Spectrum Noir Aqua Markers: Chocolate, Sepia, TerraCotta

Derwent Watercolour Pencils: Brown Ochre 57, Raw Sienna 58, Copper Beach 61, Vandyke Brown 55

Inks: Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Ground Espresso, Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Brushed Corduroy, Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Gathered Twigs, Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Picked Raspberry, Krafty Kolours – Totally Taupe Mini Ink Cube

Ai Watercolor Essentials Palette

Background Paper: Recollections – Petite Floral – Double Sided 12 x 12 in (30.4 x 30.4 cm)

MISTI – Most Incredible Stamping Tool

Brushes: Talkon H.I. Series – 970 White – #4, Legacy – Folk Art 1837 Perfect Liner #1, Bette Byrd “Aqua-Sable” 1600 Filbert 1\4

Ribbon: Ribbon Trends – Organdy Ribbon 029 White

Hope you like it and have a fantastic week!

Happy 28th Anniversary


Hi There,

Sharing a card that I made for my wonderful husband of 28 years a few years back, but never got around to posting. He’s been my best friend always and continues to be even more so as we get older together. Even after 28 years of marriage, we still never run out of things to talk about. I LOVE IT and him too! LOL!

Here is a close-up:

For the inside of the card, I wrote something special for him.

Here is a close-up of the image:

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.

Dragon – Pull My Finger Slider Card


Hi There!

I made this fun card using the High Hopes Rubber Stamps – S222 – Dragon Finger a while back, but never got around to posting it. LOL! So here it is now.

As soon as I saw this stamp set I knew that I had to have it to make my dad a card with. When we were little, he would always tell us to pull his finger and then he would toot!!!! LOL! He would then laugh at our disgusted looks. But it always brings back fond memories. He’s older now and still hasn’t changed. LOL! I think that’s why we love him so much. Our dad has always had a great sense of humour.

I used the stamps to create a slider card. On the front center panel I used the dragon the first sentiment from the same stamp set.

 

Here is a close-up:

On the right panel, I used the sentiment from the stamp set “Pull My Finger”

On the left panel, is the result of the question and answer from the first 2 panels. Just look at the big grin on his face. Just like my dad’s.

Here is a close-up:

 

Put all 3 panels together and this is what it looks like when you pull it in both directions.

 

My dad loved his card and I hope that you do too!
