Thank You for Bee-ing Such a Great Friend


Karen here and today I am sharing a thank you card I made for a friend with Crackerbox Palace stamps. This was a very easy card to make but I like how it turned out. I sponged through a stencil to make the background and then simply stamped the bees, beehive and perfect sentiment from Crackerbox Palace. I attached the card front to a black card base.

Thank You for your Support


Karen here and today I am sharing a feminine thank you card I made with Crackerbox Palace stamps. I started the card by sponging pink ink through a stencil called Check-mate by Wendy Vecchi for Studio 490. I stamped the bra on floral pink dp and cut it out. I created a clothesline with bakers twine and hung the bra with two pink clothespins. I stamped the perfect sentiment from Crackerbox Palace and layered the card front onto a pink card base.

Happy St. Patrick's Day from Crackerbox Palace


Karen here and today I am sharing a St Patrick’s Day card I made with Crackerbox Palace stamps. I tried the Pleated Skirt Fold I learned about on Split Coast Stampers for the first time on this card and like how it turned out. I stamped CBP’s many shamrocks in green on the top part of the top folding A2 card and stamped “Happy St. Patrick’s Day” on the bottom.

Fabulous Black Dress Card


Karen here and today I am sharing a “Little Black Dress” card I made with Crackerbox Palace stamps. I am a big fan of Chris Young’s Black Dress Song (Getting’ You Home), and you can click on the title to see a video. I started this card by heat embossing Crackerbox Palace’s Little Black Dress and “You’re Utterly Fabulous” with black embossing powder on watercolor paper. Then I sprinkled on some Magenta Nuance colored powders and spritzed them with Glimmer Mist to release the soft colors. I attached a strip of black glitter tape on the left side of a white A2 card base and then attached the fun and fabulous finished card front.

Happy Dance Mixed Media Designing


Karen here and today I am sharing a Mixed Media style card I made with Crackerbox Palace stamps. I don’t often design cards in this style, but I was inspired by the new Just Mixed Media! Issue of Just Cards I received this week. The magazine is packed full of beautifully photographed mixed media wall art, tags, atcs, journals and cards. I have a four cards in the issue including a Happy card on the cover (a first for me.)

I started the card above by heat embossing with white embossing powder a few fun stamped images from Crackerbox Palace. Then I sprinkled on orange, green and purple Color Burst powders and spritzed with silver iridescent Glimmer Mist. I added some black Viva Modelling Paste through a TCW stencil. When that was dry, I sponged on some black distress ink through another TCW stencil and around all the edges. I also did some doodling in the petals of the center flower with a thin black marker. I attached the completed card front to a black A2 card base.

Main Squeeze Valentine


Karen here and today I am sharing another card I made with Crackerbox Palace stamps, a stencil and BoBunny glitter paste. I think these kissing giraffes are so sweet and the sentiment from CBP is perfect for my DH. I stamped the giraffes on patterned kraft paper, did a little coloring and cut them out. I applied red and gold BoBunny glitter paste through a hearts stencil to complete this CAS Valentine.

Rainy Day Card with BoBunny Glitter Paste


Karen here and today I am sharing a card I made with Crackerbox Palace stamps, a stencil and BoBunny glitter paste. This rainy day lady stamp is one of my favorites at Crackerbox Palace. And I love how you can use BoBunny glitter paste with a stencil like stencil paste, but it dries much quicker and is so sparkly! I used silver BoBunny glitter paste and a stencil from Memory Box to create the rain on this card. I stamped and paper pieced the beautiful lady and raised her with pop dots on the navy blue piece which I attached to a green card base.
