I decided to use our Bonanza Buddies bundle of products and DSP as I soooooo love them, and just found out they will be retiring when the new June catalog starts. Note: retiring products are only available while supplies last. Just look how stinkin' cute this is.
I really love that SU! is making Designer Series Paper that you can cut images out with the coordinating dies. That is what I did here - the Koala, Toucan and Lion were all cut out with dies. The lions head was cut separately so I could pop it up on dimensionals. You can see it a little bit better here -
The birthday hat and the balloons Mr Koala is holding were fussy cut and added with dimensionals and glue dots. The Coastal Cabana tag layer was cut out from the dies in this set also; and the ribbon is from the new Ornate Garden Suite pre-release from Stampin' Up!
Finished my card off with a coordinating verse and strip of DSP inside the card; as well as those cute little balloons on the envelope.
I hope this makes you want to get your hands on these products before they go away forever. Now be sure to "hop" on through the rest of the blogs on the list below to see all their great takes on this same sketch. Before moving on, be sure to leave a comment at the bottom of this post - they make my day!
A little bit crazy and always stampin' ~ Maureen

Changing it up again for this Monday Challenge #5 - we're going to do a Stamps-Ink-Paper challenge! That means all you can use on your card are stamps, ink and paper - going back to the very basics. If you want to have layers that is okay because it is paper - but no embellishments. I'm a clean and simple gal so this was easy for me - but for some of you this will be a challenge
Challenge #5 - So here is the deal - your card does not have to use Stampin' Up! products - although I would LOVE that. Use only stamps, ink and paper. Once done, you need to go to my facebook page search Crazy Stamping Lady - like the page if you have not done so; and post your picture of your card in the comments of the Challenge #5 Post. Here's the direct link to my FACEBOOK page - click HERE.
BONUS OFFER -
And, since I am trying to get as many people as possible to go to my page and play along - if you invite a friend to play - and they post a picture and mention you invited them - not only will they get an entry - but you'll get a BONUS entry too.
So here is what I came up with for my inspiration for you - it uses the Inspiring Iris set - four different colors but only using stamps, ink and paper. I didn't even do any layers - and I just love them!
Now it's your turn - pick your stamp, your inks and your papers - make your card - and post to my Facebook page no later than Noon, Sunday, April 26th for a chance to win a sampling of DSP perfect for card front layering - good luck! Can't wait to see all your cards. ~Maureen

Be sure to hop through all the blogs on the list near the bottom for tons of wonderful inspiration!
So for my card I just wanted to make a beautiful Mother's Day bouquet - so I stamped and punched and fussy cut a bunch of flowers and leaves. After stamping the stems, I added the flowers and leaves to the card with glue dots at the bottom of each - this allowed the flowers to pop out a bit at the top and give the bouquet some great dimension. You can see that more closely below.
I added a bow made with the new ribbon combo from SU's Ornate Garden suite. Then added some colored gems - I always keep a bunch of colored gems on hand - both the ones from SU; but also some clear ones that I have colored with blends like these.
My 3D item is a cute little decorated Dollar store candle. I just wrapped it with a couple layers of coordinating cardstock. Then added a mini bouquet and gems to the front - as well as the Happy Mother's Day sentiment.
Once again, thank you for stopping by my blog. I hope you enjoyed these projects and got some inspiration for creating something wonderful of your own.
