Still CraZy for CrAZy!

Hello friends! Are you still CRAZY over the Tim Holtz Crazy stamps? They just make me happy every time I see them. It's hard not to have a smile on your face because they're just so cute. So Valentine's Day is right around the corner and I thought these would make great cards for my grandkids and my sweetheart. 

The Crazy that started it all Bird Crazy I think the Birds are my favorites. 
All the images are stamped onto Watercolor Cardstock with Jet Black Archival Ink, then colored with Distress Markers and blended out with the Detail Waterbrush. The Crazy Bird, Cats and Dog are all die cut with the corresponding Thinlits Die from the Sizzix Alterations line. 

Bird Crazy
For the background of this card I first inked the Big Number Stamps with Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide Ink, then Inked the Vines and Roses stamp with Fired Brick Distress Oxide Ink, kissed the stamps together and stamp it on Watercolor Cardstock. I also colored the Numbers with an Antique Linen Distress Marker and then blended out the color with a Waterbrush. 

Crazy Cats
The Cats are mounted on a piece of Memoranda Paper Stash, then a piece of Watercolor Cardstock cut into a big heart then embossed for a little texture, I also added stitching around these pieces before adhering them to the card. 

Crazy Dogs
Don't you just love this cute little dog? The ground and the sun are stamped onto Watercolor Cardstock with the new stamp set from Stampers Anonymous called Brushstrokes using Distress Markers to color them. These stamps are so fun! 

I hope this gives you a few ideas for creating cards for Valentines day or just for fun! 

Have a great week and thanks so mush for stopping by!
