Vellum Shaker Peace and Joy Card


Happy Friday! Karen H. here and I am sharing a shaker card I made recently with Crackerbox Palace’s beautiful stamps. I am loving all the shaker cards I have been seeing lately and decided to try one with vellum. I heat embossed the snowflakes and sentiment with white embossing powder. I colored the snowflakes from behind with a marker. I stamped CBP’s lovely dove on white cardstock, cut out and attached so the wings are free to fly. I raised the vellum piece up with mounting tape, added some sequins and covered the sides with washi tape.

**As a holiday present to you from Crackerbox Palace, all the  stamps on this card will be 20% OFF for one week! What a deal! **
In addition to that great deal, you can also visit my blog here for a chance at some great blog candy. I am celebrating my 5 year blogaversary all this month, and you can win one of 7 prizes just by being a follower of my blog. Crackerbox Palace has generously offered 5 gift certificates worth $15 for 5 lucky winners to shop with at their website! I have two other great prizes too, so come over over, sign up as a follower and you might be one of the lucky winners! Just click on the picture on the side of my blog for all the details.
 
As the card says, “Wishing you (and yours) a never ending season of peace and joy!”

Goddess Birthday Card for my Daughter


Happy Friday! Karen H. here and I am sharing the card I made for my daughter’s birthday featuring one of Crackerbox Palace’s Goddess stamps. I created the background on this card with my new Brusho Crystal Colours. After it was dry, I rounded the corners and attached to a white card base with rounded corners too. I stamped the beautiful Water Goddess on the Brusho piece, on cream cardstock and on script patterned paper. I cut her out after coloring her hair. Then I paper pieced her dress and headband and attached her to the card front. I added some silver gel pen to the water drops. All the Goddesses are just beautiful and are available here on the Crackerbox Palace website.

**As a holiday present to you from Crackerbox Palace, all the Goddess stamps will be 20% OFF for one week! What a deal! **

In addition to that great deal, you can also visit my blog here for a chance at some great blog candy. I am celebrating my 5 year blogaversary all this month, and you can win one of 7 prizes just by being a follower of my blog. Crackerbox Palace has generously offered 5 gift certificates worth $15 for 5 lucky winners to shop with at their website!

Christmas Greetings and Great Deals and Chances to Win!


Happy Friday! Karen H. here and I am sharing a Christmas card I made with CBP’s great stamps and a Bokeh technique I learned about in this video. In the video, the blogger used watercolor paints to create the background, but I do not have any, so I used my Brusho Crystal Colours in several shades of blue. After that was dry, the Bokeh look is achieved by sponging white pigment ink through a stencil with several sizes of circular holes. I created my stencil with a piece of acetate and some circle punches. After I finished the Bokeh background, I embossed the Santa and Sleigh silhouette and Christmas greeting stamps with black embossing powder.

Lee's In Bed All Day

Hi Friends,
How was your weekend? Happy Monday. I wanted to share with you a card that was posted on Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers. Lee used our stamps for their Vintage challenge. Hope you hop on over to see the great works of art and join their challenge. You can see Lee's blog Violent Kitty HERE to read more about her card and see the other works of art.
But this is a perfect Monday card!
I like the vintage looking paper and the rick rack. My grandma use to use rick rack on all of her aprons she would make. And love the button. And using a circle with the image almost looks like we are peeking in on her.
Here is what she put on the inside.
Thanks Lee for making such a great card!
