One Crazy Stamper April Challenge

HAPPY, HAPPY HAPPY APRIL FOOLS DAY!!  No pranks or jokes today – – Lora at One Crazy Stamper doesn’t have any either  -- but she does have the best prices in town!!.  You will be amazed at all the stuff she has on sale (everything!!!!!)!!

Don’t you just love poppies and daisies together…they are signs of spring. P1120161 copy A friend has a backyard full of these blossoms and it is a  beautiful field of Red and White in the spring.

Today I’m showcasing a card made with Sheena Douglass’s beautiful “Poppies and Daisies” stamp set.  The images were stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink onto X-press it Cardstock and coloured with Copics.  Lora recommended I try X-press-it Blend Cardstock made for copics  and I am so glad I took her advice!!  Copic colours “pop”, blending so easily.  I think the reason they blend so well is because the Copics stay wetter longer. 

Liking to add variety of card formats, I decided to make a Stair Step Card. P1120163 copy I stamped the poppy image onto X-press it C/S, masked it, then off -stamped the sentiment to make it appear in the background. Spiced Marmalade Distress Ink was used to sponge the outside perimeter.   The daisies were cut out and popped onto the side steps. The rest is self explanatory.

Hope you will join us at One Crazy Stamper with your submission of “flowers” for the whole month of April.  There will be a $25. prize awarded to some lucky person.  Someone has to win – it may as well be YOU.  Looking forward to visiting your submissions!

Keep stamping!   ~ Rubber hugs, inky wishes ~    siggyhaycock
