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.



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!

Miss Kate Cuttables – Guest Designer



Surprise!  I’m a guest designer for Miss Kate Cuttables again this year! Miss Kate Cuttables offers awesome freebie designs everyday and I always look forward to them. I also love their designs and their new paper is great too! I just had to have it as it goes so well with their designs!

I LOVE Christmas and make over 55 cards every year to give to family and friends. I thought why not start early this year and so I made a Christmas themed card for my guest spot.

Using my Cricut Explore and Cricut Design Space I uploaded Miss Kate Cuttables “boy-winter-deer-1016” (https://www.misskatecuttables.com/products/product/boy-winter-deer.php). I thought he was sooo cute! Added some Ranger Glossy Accents to his nose and eyes.  Wink of Stella – GL Green 040 was used on the ear muffs.

Here is a close-up of the little reindeer.


Also, uploaded one of my all time favourite trees from Miss Kate Cuttables – snowy-tree-10-07-15 (https://www.misskatecuttables.com/products/product/freebie-of-the-day-snowy-tree.php). I’ve used this tree on so many of my cards. Added some glitter with Spectrum Noir Clear Glitter Pen.

The background paper is from Miss Kate Cuttables – “mkd-winter-woodland-paper-collection” – winter woodland reindeer.jpg (https://www.misskatecuttables.com/products/product/winter-woodland-paper-collection.php). Printed out the digital image on my HP Printer and then sized it to 6″ x 6″ and edge around the sides with Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Peeled Paint.

Behind the reindeer the paper is from American Crafts – Holiday collection – 6 x 6″ (15.2 cm x 15.2 cm). Used My Creative Time -Stitched Squares Inside and Out to cut out the square and then edged around the sides of the small square with Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Peacock Feathers

The hills were made with Recollections – Christmas Inkjet Printable Glitter Paper – 8.5″ x 11″ and Lawn Fawn – Lawn Cut dies.  Then used  Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Tumbled Glass along the tops of the hills.

“Merry Christmas” ribbon is by Celebrate It!

Miss Kate Cuttables, thank you so much for inviting me to be a part of your guest design team again this year. It truly is a great honour and it made me so happy!


Mother’s Day Card

Hi Everyone,

Thought I’d share the card that I made for my mom for Mother’s Day.

The stamp is from High Hopes Rubber Stamps – Snuggles and Cuddles T503.


I stamped the image twice. Once as a mask so that I could do my background first and then again with Memento – Tuxedo Black ink. Coloured it in with Spectrum Noir markers.

Here is a close-up.


For the sky I used Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Salty Ocean and Avery Elle – Custom Steel Dies – Made in the USA – D-05-01 PiercedCloudsDie.

For the grass I used a mixture of Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Mowed Lawn, Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Lucky Clover and Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Peeled Paint. Used a little grass stamp that I have to add some texture.

Sentiment is from me created in Microsoft Word and the printed out on white cardstock. “Mom” is from My Creative Time – Mom Stamp and Die set.

Background paper is from Kaitlin – Recollections Signature 12 x12 Paper Pad.

Used Craftin Desert Diva’s Fancy Frames for the stitched rectangle and scalloped edge frame.

Hope you like it!
