Cracked Egg Card for a Friend


Happy Friday! Karen H. here and today I am sharing a fun card I made with some great stamps from Crackerbox Palace. I found this card on Pinterest, but there were no directions on how to make the egg open and close. I figured out how to use Stampin’ Up’s word window punch and a brad through the layers to open and close this cute egg card. I cut the outside yellow patterned egg with a large Nestabilities oval die and the smaller stitched ovals with dies from My Creative Time. I made an Easter card with this idea, but Crackerbox Palace’s “slightly cracked” stamps are perfect for this cracked egg card for a friend. This is what the card looks like closed:

I stamped and paper pieced the cheery bluebird, colored the flowers with gel pens and attached with pop dots to one side of the cracked egg.

Interactive LOL Accident Card



Happy Friday! Karen H. here and today I am sharing a funny card I made with some great stamps from Crackerbox Palace. I think this card would put a smile on the face of a friend or relative after they had an accident or injury. I found this tutorial on how to make an interactive card that pulls out to reveal a hidden message. It is not hard to make, but rather than go into all the details in this blogpost, click on the link if you want to know how to make a card like this.

Did you know many of Crackerbox Palace’s stamps can be purchased as digital stamps if you prefer that form over cling foam, wood or rubber? I usually choose cling foam mounted and I had the cute puppy on cling, but did not have the other two sentiment stamps. Getting digital stamps allows you to change the size of the stamp and I printed the “Heard you had an accident” on a piece of plaid dp larger than the original size.


The pull tab pulls out to reveal the lol punch line which was printed smaller than the original stamp. I stamped the cute puppy twice on kraft paper, cut out the head and the whole dog, and attached the head with pop dots for dimension. He was attached to the pull tab and moves to reveal the funny message.

Happy St. Patrick's Day from Crackerbox Palace!


Happy Friday! Karen H. here and today I am sharing another St. Patrick’s Day card made with stamps from Crackerbox Palace. To make this card, I started with a great sketch shared at my local stamp club. Crackerbox Palace has bunches of fun clover stamps and I stamped and cut several in different sizes out. I attached a shiny leaf border sticker down the side of a green card front and stamped some small shamrocks. I cut a curved border piece with a die cut from Spellbinders and stamped a beautiful Irish saying and another shamrock. Then I layered the cut out shamrocks along the side of the front.
 

On the inside of the card, I stamped Happy St. Patrick’s Day and finished the lovely Irish blessing.

St. Patrick's Day Fun Fold Card


Happy Friday! Karen H. here and today I am sharing a St. Patrick’s Day fun fold card made with stamps from Crackerbox Palace. To make this card, I started with a piece of spring green paper 12” x 5 ½” and scored at 2, 4 , 8 and 10 inches. Fold mountain, valley, valley, mountain resulting in a 4 x 5/12 card. I have seen this card fold used with punched owls and other animals- the key is to attach two stamped or punched figures to the top fold on both sides and one to the center of the bottom fold. I stamped two of Crackerbox Palace’s leprechauns, cut out and attached to two stitched ovals. I attached them with adhesive on the top half only to the sides of the top folded half. Then I stamped CBP’s leprechaun hat, cut out, attached to a stitched oval and put that in the center of the bottom half. The stitched oval dies are from My Creative Time. I stamped the curved sentiment and a couple more shamrocks on the front. 


On the inside of the folded card, I stamped another shamrock and a lovely Irish blessing. I don’t usually make St. Patrick’s Day cards, but these stamps from Crackerbox Palace are just too fun to resist. I will share another St Pat’s card next Friday.

Little Black Dress Card


Happy Friday! Karen H. here and today I am sharing a feminine card I made with Crackerbox Palace’s awesome stamps. I started with a black 4 ¼” x 11” card and folded it at 5 ½”. Then I folded the left side back in half again. I used the partial die cut technique in the center of the black card front to cut only the right half of a label die from QuicKutz (put the top glass only on the half you want to cut.) Then I folded back the cut part and attached to the left side of the card front. I cut a slightly smaller QuicKutz label shaped piece out of script designer paper and stamped Crackerbox Palace’s Party Dress in black and added a flower at the waist. On the inside I stamped CBP's “You’re Utterly Fabulous” for the fabulous lady who will receive this card.
