A golf themed card for my husband

It will soon be my husband’s birthday.

He plays golf often so I thought I would make him a card using the golf die I have from Joanna Sheen :

I wanted a different colour scheme, so chose purple and navy, which I used for the tree, background, golfer and the grass (the grass and the tree were cut from Tim Holtz Mixed Media dies)

Can you spot the little crazy dog which I stamped onto shrink plastic and coloured before shrinking it.

All for now

A colourful card using the Crazy Dog stamps by Tim Holtz


Well, I have more Crazy Dog cards to show you starting with this one:-

The background was a piece I had coloured by spritzing with Brusho crystals which I had diluted in water and put into spray bottles (just red and yellow).

The Crazy Dog was stamped, cut out and coloured with Promarkers before adding a hand drawn skirt and hat from the Crazy things stamps. 

I finished with balloons, sequins and a sentiment which I printed on my computer.

Hope you like it and that this gives you fresh ideas for your stamps.

All for now

Crazy Bird Halloween card

I have neglected these cute stamps from Stampers Anonymous because I have been using the new Crazy Dog stamps recently.

So today I would like to share this Halloween  card using the Crazy Bird stamps, Crazy Things stamps and Mixed Media dies, all designed by Tim Holtz.

You could easily use the Crazy Dogs, but it made a change to use the birds this time.

Hope you like this

Crazy Dog Christmas card - Bull Humbug


Today I would like to share with you a simple card using the Tim Holtz Crazy Dog stamps by Stampers Anonymous.

This bulldog looks so grumpy that I couldn't resist making a christmas card with this sentiment.  I am sure I will have someone to send it to !

It was really easy to make, I simply stamped the dog onto card, cut it out and coloured it with Promarkers before attaching it to the card, finishing with a christmas hat, decorative edge and a sentiment which I printed with my computer. 

Hope you like this.

All for now

Crazy Dog stamped card version 2

Hi there

I am totally in love with these stamps by Stampers Anonymous .

I am not a dog lover usually but each of these dogs have quirky characters . (I think this is a bloodhound?).

I made a similar card to this a few weeks ago and wanted to try a different colour so here is another version for you (perhaps a little bit more feminine).

I stamped the dog, then cut him out before colouring with Promarkers.  The hat is from Stampers Anonymous Crazy things, by Tim Holtz, as are the baloons.

The background was from my stash,  I distressed the edges and used one of Tim's dies for detail (Mixed Media).

Hope you like this, I would love to hear from you.

Crazy Dog stamps (dashund) - 'have a dog gone good birthday' card


Here is another card using the Crazy Dog stamps by Tim Holtz from Stampers Anonymous.

I have recently shown you cards in very bright colours, so this subtle colouring is different  for me and it would be ideal for a masculine birthday card.

I used craft card as a background and overlayed this with printed card into which I cut a Tim Holtz Mixed Media die, them distressed the edges with Vintage Photo distress ink.

I stamped the image,  then cut it out and coloured it with Promarkers before adding it to the card on foam pads.

I used Tim Holtz crazy things stamps to stamp the balloons, again colouring with Promarkers, before adding these on foam pads with thread attached to look as if the dog is holding them.

I finished by coating the balloons, dog nose and eyes with glossy accents.
Hope you like this and it inspires you to try a similar card

All for now
