One Crazy Stamper Guest Designer

I know, I know....some of you are thinking..."Karen really IS one crazy stamper".  LOL  While it's true, that's not what the title of this post is all about.  No, actually I'm Guest Designing in November and December for One Crazy Stamper which is an on-line store and fun, inspirational blog where I'll be sharing one card each week (through the end of December) featuring the newest release from High Hopes Rubber Stamps.  The High Hopes Rubber Stamp I used for this particular card is called Large Stackable Santa.  He is SO cute, and I am positive that I will be using him again soon.
I actually cut the Large Stackable Santa in half (roughly), but carefully trimmed around his beard so that it would hang down.  I placed the top half of Santa at the top of a chipboard frame, and the other half of him down at the bottom of that same chipboard frame.  The chipboard frame (being round) looks a little bit like Santa's rolly polly belly, and I backed it with a small piece of vellum.  I added some sequins to the center of the frame.  You will also notice, especially in the photo above, that everything I did to the Large Stackable Santa was done TWICE so that I could layer him (per his name...stackable).  I colored him with Copic markers including Black and Lipstick Red.
For the sentiment, I added a Carta Bella Sticker (Merry Christmas) from their Christmas Delivery Element Sticker Sheet, and Carta Bella Christmas Delivery patterned paper.  I tied a length of Black Baker's Twine around the bottom of my card.  One Crazy Stamper has so many fabulous stamps and accessories to help you make something wonderful.  
Be sure to stop by One Crazy Stamper to see this stamp and ALL the fabulous new High Hopes Stamps from their latest release.  You're sure to find something you just can't resist.....perhaps Large Stackable Santa is calling your name.  I'll be posting again soon to show you more of this new release from High Hopes Stamps.  Why not gets your today?
Thanks again for stopping by today.  I hope you're all having a safe, happy and creative week.  And don't forget to check out One Crazy Stamper and all the fabulous High Hopes Rubber Stamps.
