It's been a long time since my last post I know. I started this card way back in October and just finished it over the weekend. It's sad when work and other things get in the way of ones crafting lol. I was able to have a little getaway with friends this past weekend and I managed to get a few cards done. So that means I will have more to share over the coming days.
Some might not be aware besides owning and operating One Crazy Stamper I also own High Hopes Rubber Stamps. I love to scrapbook, especially for my children but I also love to rubber stamp and colour. I include a lot of rubber stamping in my scrapbooking just so I can feed both passions at one time. I enjoy have the ability to work with our Designer to create stamps that are timeless. As 2017 gets closer I have started to think of things that I want to make more time for in the New Year...of course my kids are at the top of the list I also want to make more time for my passion and that's crafting.
Each year I make a batch of cards for my Mom. Mom gives them to her friends and nurses at the hospital she goes to 4 times a week for dialysis and this will be one of them. This image is part of the Fall/Winter Release from High Hopes Stamps and it's called "Jingle Jangle". I paired it with the sentiment from the Woodland Friends Release called "Friends Are For". On the inside I used "Sparkle & Cheer" from the Fall/Winter Release. You can purchase these stamps from either High Hopes Stamps the releases HERE & HERE or One Crazy Stamper. On the High Hopes website you have a choice of unmounted or EZ mounted. On the OCS site you can only purchase unmounted.
Our High Hopes Designer Dina Gerner created the lovely papers I worked with on this card. You can find them HERE
