Tons of Fun!

Hi Ai Fans!
Today I get to share with you a really cool new idea from Art Impressions! The new Stacker sets with dies. This set is called "Elephant Stacker" and I also used the "Slider die".
When I first got out the stamp set and die, I was a bit worried about how this would all work! Let me tell you it's actually quite easy! My friend Karen also has a great tutorial on how to put it all together. You can find it HERE. I thought this paper from Teresa Collins You Are My Happy 6x6 collection went perfectly with my Elephant Stackers.
I pulled out an alphabet stamp set I have and stamped "pull" on the bottom so the recipient knows what to do.
Copics used: 
Elephants: W0, W1, W2, W4, R01
Outline B0000
These cute sliders were so easy to make, I'll be getting more for sure!

Happy Stamping!

Summer Sweetness!

Hi OCS Followers!
Happy Wednesday or Hump Day should I say! Today's card features the adorable little girl and her watermelon called "Summer Sweetness" from High Hopes Stamps! That's one mighty big piece of watermelon for this sweet little girl LOL!
I am using papers from the American Crafts Sunny 6x6 collection! The watermelon paper just fit perfectly! I put a frame around the girl using the Pretty Pink Posh Scallop Square die cut from coordinating paper. I also cut and layered a small tag from the set that had the matching watermelon theme. Some ribbon, a bow and YNS gumdrops finishes off my card.
I made a second card and fussy cut around the image layering her on  a Memory Box Stitched Scallop die.
Copics Used:
Skin: E00, E11, E21, R20
Hair: E43, E44, E47, E49
Dress: R24, R27, R29, C1
Watermelon: R20, R22, R24 / YG11, YG13, YG17
Grass: YG11, YG13, YG17

This is my last Design Team post for One Crazy Stamper. I sure have enjoyed the last year designing for Lora! Her stamps and store are second to none and Lora is one of the kindest, most thoughtful person you could get the chance to meet! I will still be staying on the High Hopes Stamps (Lora's other passion) Design team so check out the Tuesday HH Blog posts to see me over there!

Keep crafting and Happy Stamping!

Happy Birthday Canada!

Hi High Hope Fans!
This Friday is Canada Day for all us Canadians! When I saw this stamp from High Hopes Stamps called "Canadian Friends" I knew it would make a perfect card to celebrate our country! I think I will use it as part of my centrepiece for our Canada BBQ at the cottage!
I made the card base using a red piece of cardstock and my Silhouette Electronic Cutting machine. I popped up the "Canadian Friends"and the sentiment with foam squares for some added dimension. A handwritten Happy Birthday stamp and a few Maple leaves finished off my card. I also used my Silhouette to cut around my image and sentiment.

Copics Used:
Skin: E00, E11, E21, R20
Mountie: R35, R37, R39 / N5, N7, N9 / Y35, Y38 / E53, E55, E57
Beaver: E43, E44, E47, E49
Moose: E55, E57, E59

To all my Canadian friends and followers..... I hope you have a great Canada Day weekend! I will certainly be enjoying the Fireworks, one of my favourite things about this long weekend!
Happy Stamping!

From The Hearts Stamps Monthly Challenge!

Today I'm sharing with you a card I made for the monthly progressive challenge over at From The Heart Stamps. This month the digital stamp set is called "Ice Cream Lineup". What a perfect image for June and to celebrate the beginning of Summer!

I used the MFT Peek A Boo trio Die-namics to showcase the ice cream. I printed the image 3x and then cut out each image to add to the back of each circle of the peek a boo die. I used one of the sentiments on the front and layered it with matching cardstock. A nice piece of ribbon and some YNS sparkly pink gumdrops finished off my card.
On the inside I added some more of the Bo Bunny Primrose collection paper and another sentiment! I love this sentiment as who wouldn't want ice cream rather than broccoli!! (right Mom LOL)
Copics Used:
Bowl & Ice cream: C1, C3, C5 / YR30, YR31 / E25, E27 / RV10, RV11
Cupcake liner & Ice cream: RV10, RV11, RV13 / Y30, Y31 / E43, E44 / R35, R39
Cup & Ice cream: YR30, YR31 / RV10, RV11, E25, E27, E43, E44

Now if this card doesn't inspire you to go the freezer I don't know what will LOL!

Happy Stamping!
