Go Nuts!

Hello and Happy Good Friday!!!!  Have you noticed the changes to the blog design?  I would like to say, Lora did a fantastic job on the new look - so pretty!

As promised I have a special card to show you that I made using the Jelly Bean Nap stamp in a different way than just using it for Easter, check it out....
 As you can see I have changed the jelly beans and made them PEANUTS and then came up with a sentiment using my fonts to say "Go Nuts" to play off of the peanuts!

Here is a look at the inside where I used another House mouse stamp to accent as well....
Supplies Used:
*  Images:  House Mouse Designs, Jelly Bean Nap & Tiny Jumper
* Memento Inks: Tuxedo Black & Rich Cocoa
* Memory Box Die:  Flourish
(All links listed above can be purchased at www.onecrazystamper.com)

Here is a close up of the image to get a better look at the peanuts and the Copic colours used....
 Copic Colours Used:
* Peanuts:  E35, E33, E31, E30
* Ground:  T4, T2, T0, 0
* Mouse Skin & Ears: E11,E00, RV00
* Mouse Fur:  T6, T4, T2, T0

Here is a look at my previous card as well as this card - as you can see I used the same layout on both cards to show you that this stamp is very versatile and not just for Easter!


I hope that you enjoyed today's card and I wish you and your family a safe and wonderful Easter weekend!

I would love to hear your thoughts about how I used this wonderful stamp!  You still have time to enter the Anything Goes Challenge over at One Crazy Stamper, we'd love to see your creation!


Until Next Time, Keep Crafting!
