Get Ready for Canada Day! with One Crazy Stamper

Happy almost Sunday, everyone! Every Sunday, I post inspiration with High Hopes Rubber Stamps on the One Crazy Stamper blog. Since I schedule my blog here to post at the same time, it ends up being a late Saturday night post.

July 1st is little more than a week away, so I figured it’s a great time for a little bit of Canadiana. With Canadian roots, High Hopes Rubber Stamps has an adorable inventory of themed stamps and sentiments for Canada Day. This one, Canadian Friends, is one of my favorites!

This image comes in two sizes. This one is the smaller one in the inventory (R069) and is about 2.5″ x 3.0″ in size. If you’re looking for the slightly larger version, you can find it here. I didn’t have any of the more appropriate Canada Day sentiments, so I chose to use Sending Smiles. Because really, who doesn’t smile at that adorable beaver!

Looking for something for the Fourth of July? High Hopes also has some US themed images and sentiments.

I hope you have a wonderful Sunday.

Purr-fect Day with One Crazy Stamper

Happy almost Sunday, everyone! Every Sunday, I post inspiration with High Hopes Rubber Stamps on the One Crazy Stamper blog. Since I schedule my blog here to post at the same time, it ends up being a late Saturday night post.

Sunday is Father’s Day here in Canada! But, do I have a Father’s Day card for you today? No, I do not.

Today I’ve got the purr-birthday card for you, featuring Sitting Kitty with Posey.

Kitty has been colored up and fussy cut for this card. I used my background frame die and then cut extra piece in different patterns to add some color and interest. The large square was a perfect fit for the Hoping Your Day sentiment.

Birthday Buzzard with One Crazy Stamper

Happy almost Sunday, everyone! Every Sunday, I post inspiration with High Hopes Rubber Stamps on the One Crazy Stamper blog. Since I schedule my blog here to post at the same time, it ends up being a late Saturday night post.

What inspiration from High Hopes Rubber Stamps do I have for you today? Well, check it out!

This year happens to be a milestone birthday year. Which means, many of my friends are celebrating the same magical number. One of them is going to get a smile on their birthday face when this Birthday Buzzard lands in their mailbox!

The image was paired with the Happy Bird Day sentiment. This sentiment is straight, but has enough spacing that you can chop it up to make it work with the space you have available. Here, I thought it needed a quick hit of color, so I used my distress crayon to give it a matching hue.

Thanks for stopping by! Take a quick visit to the One Crazy Stamper blog to check out more daily inspiration from the Design Team.

I hope you have a wonderful Sunday.

 

Dueling Darlings – May Catch Up

Hello crafty world!

I’m determined to catch up on my Dueling Darling projects before the next swap deadline! I noticed a new envelope arrived Friday and while I haven’t investigated it yet, I’m thinking it might be the June kit.

May’s kit came from Carol and it was a Motorcycle Masculine theme. What a creative idea! The kit came with these great motorcycle images which were intimidating to color, but look great.

I love the little US flag embellishment. It was just too cute not to include.

Thanks for the great kit, Carol!

And now the countdown to June kits begins.

Sick Puppy! with One Crazy Stamper

Happy almost Sunday, everyone! Every Sunday, I post inspiration with High Hopes Rubber Stamps on the One Crazy Stamper blog. Since I schedule my blog here to post at the same time, it ends up being a late Saturday night post.

Welcome to another week with One Crazy Stamper and the fabulous stamps of High Hopes Rubber Stamps!

I’m still on a Get Well kick, checking out some of the new products from their recent release. This adorable puppy’s been waiting for me to color it up. I had fun playing with my color combos and am super happy with this one.

The image pairs with the Been Ruff sentiment, but decided to play it up this time and used Back On Your Feet for this card. Lots of possible combinations with High Hopes!

Check out the daily inspiration at the One Crazy Stamper blog. And, I’ll see you again next week.

Mystery Image Swap – Time to Catch Up

I know, the theme of June seems to be “catch up time”. At least I’m doing it!

My Mystery Image Swaps have been piling up on my desk. We went camping the May long weekend and I hauled my markers and several images camping. A lovely afternoon at the picnic table and I had a number of images outstanding, ready for crafty time.

First up, March image from Jen. This image is from Purple Onion Designs and is called Free Spirits. The sketch idea came from Try Stampin’ on Tuesday (sketch #410).

The April image came from the lovely Tracie. She chose Loads of Blooms by Newton’s Nook Design. I have recently discovered Newton’s Nook and they have such great images! I loved playing with my pattern papers on this one. The layout came from Try Stampin’ on Tuesday (sketch #409), but I relocated my sentiment for a better fit.

And finally, the May image (yes! I AM caught up!). Sue sent May’s image and chose these awesome succulent gardens. I had fun figuring out the best way to use it on the card. This card is loosely based on the Atlantic Sketch Challenge (sketch #218). The general layout is there, but I needed some modifications in order to fit the larger image. Hope you can see it!

Thanks for catching up on this swap with me! Time to get these lovely cards out the door to their new homes.
