Julie's Smile...Sneak Peak Day #3

Welcome back to Sneak Peak Day #3 for the upcoming May 1st High Hopes new release.  Today I'm sharing "Julie's Smile".  I love bright colours when I'm colouring.  For this one I chose an older Doodlebug paper....went out on a limb and picked BG's & YG's.  Okay so secretly they are my FAV colours & I will grab any excuse I can to work with them lol.


Here is a close can't tell but I added Clear Wink of Stella all over the wings for a subtle glitter.

Julie's Touch...Sneak Peak Day #2

Hi Everyone,

Welcome back to High Hopes Rubber Stamps Sneak Peak Day #2.  This release from HH is called Fairies & Adventurers.  Yesterday I previewed one of the Adventurers and today I'm sharing one of the new Fairies.  This beauty is called "Julie's Touch".  


You can't tell from the photo but I have used a Stardust pen on Julie's dress so it sparkles so nicely.  On the wings I have used a Wink of Stella Clear pen.  Again you can't tell but this card is quite glittery!  The flowers were white & I air compressed them with V12 & V17.


The sentiment "have a magical day" will also be a part of the new releases coming out Friday, May 1st!

Copic List

Bob Hooked A Big One!!!

Hi Everyone,

Today is Sneak Peak Day #1 for the brand new High Hopes Rubber Stamps release.  Official release day is Friday, May 1st.  One Crazy Stamper will have all the new releases available on Friday!

I have Bob Hooked a Big One for you.  This image was perfect for a birthday card I needed....the gentleman is totally hooked on fishing...non pun intended lol!


I coloured the fish again and popped him up.  Just a little side note.  You can't see it from the pic but the fish that is coloured on the main piece of cardstock is coloured with a W5 marker underneath.  I did this because if you take a look from a side view it doesn't appear white and looks much more natural.



This is another card I made using Bob Hooked A Big One...same colour scheme basically I just changed a couple of things.  Watch for the new release because there are sentiments that go with these release as well!


Copic List

Greens (Hat & Shirt) - YG91, YG93, YG95

Blues (Water) - BG0000, BG000, BG01

Skin - E000, E00, E13 with Henna Primsa for shading

Boat - E23, E25, E29

Fishing rod - T5, T2

Background - BG0000

Fish - YG91, YG93, YG95 with B23 & C2 a little for this I coloured the B23 & C2 first then the YG's

The patterned paper is Bella Blvd. Campout "Under the Stars"

Be sure to visit the High Hopes Blog as well.  The Diva's are each unveiling 2 images per can see them HERE

Hope you enjoyed today's post, we will see you again tomorrow with some more eye candy!

Hi Everyone,

Today I'm using Buddy Bear Camping with the Happy Father's Day sentiment both from High Hopes Rubber Stamps.

Bear - E35,E37,E39

Blue combo's - B23,B24,B26 & B34,B37, B39

Grey - W3,W5,W7

Green - G21,G24,G28 I only used G21 for the grass

Background - B0000

The patterned paper is from Bella Blvd's new Campout Collection I used "Under The Stars #871".  The cardstock is Bazzil Twighlight Dark & Ivy.

Hope you enjoyed today's post see you again soon!

Bear Pals

Hi Everyone,

I was determined to get this post up today as I have been working on trying to get this card done for a couple of weeks.  You know how things go there is always something else that needs to be done...but we need our crafting time right!

For this card I chose Bear Pals a new release from High Hopes Rubber Stamps.  Just in case you didn't know One Crazy Stamper owns and operates High Hopes.  So yes I'm a little partial to these adorable images but I always have been anyway.  High Hopes has over 3,000 images for you to choose from you can check out their website directly here:  In the OCS store we can't carry all the images but we do have bucket loads of them HERE.

Now onto the details about my card.  I love the new Bella Blvd. Simply Spring papers so that was my focus for the colour scheme & yellow just happens to be a colour that makes me a happy lady.  My flowers were white but I used my air compressor and Copic's to make them match.  I totally love matchy, matchy things!  I also air compressed around my image.


I think I may need to find an addiction centre for my issues with YNS Gumdrops...I put them on anything I can.  They stick like cement so if you use them be sure that's where you want them to be because they aren't coming off the paper without ripping it.


Bears - W2, W4, W6

Boy shorts - BG01, BG05, BG07

Leaves - YG61, YG63, YG67

Girl Pinks - R81, R83, R85   Yellow Y32, Y35, Y38

Background - BG0000

Ground - W2, W0, W4, W6

Air brushing - Y32, Y35, Y38

Misc - Tuxedo Black Ink, Xpress It Cardstock (the only one I use for Copic), Bazzill Blue Oasis & Fiesta, YNS Gumdrops, misc. ribbon & flowers

Hope you enjoy today's post & I sure hope to be back again soon with more eye candy.
