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.

Karen's A is for Accident

 Karen Schroeder made this card with our stamps for a challenge over at Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers. Isn't this a bright and cheery card, and kind of funny.
The challenge over at SOSS is A is for Accident. So if you have an idea for a card hop on over there and enter their challenge! But first, stop on over to Karen's blog and see what she writes and look at the other works of art of hers. http://paleopal623.blogspot.com/

Monochromatic Masculine Birthday


Happy Friday! Karen H. here and today I am sharing a monochromatic masculine card I made with Crackerbox Palace’s awesome stamps. I started with a grey card base and stamped the vertical Happy Birthday and straight and curvy barb wire. I stamped the Poster on Wood on grey cardstock and then stamped the cowboy silhouette inside. I sponged the outside frame with black Distress ink and the inside was sponged with a white pigment ink. I cut it out and attached to the card front with pop dots to raise it. I don’t know any cowboys, but I think most any guy would like this card.

St. Pat's Beer

Hi, Vicky here today. Well on to St. Pat's Day.
Valentine's Day is over so on to another fun occasion. Do you wear one of those buttons: Kiss Me I'm Irish? Or pinch someone who is wearing orange? OH I remember green beer many, many years ago.
Well, to the card. I sponged the background with brown ink on tan card stock. The saying is on our Poster. I did stamp it on darker tan c/s and then again on light c/s. I cut out the light and put it on the darker c/s so it looks like paper on the board. And sponged a little brown around the edges.
Colored the happy leprechaun with Copic markers, (but I didn't make the beer green).  
 
Friendly Crackerbox Hugs, Vicky

SO, because Valentine's Day is the Love holiday, I am extending the sale for today and posting it on the blog as well.

Happy Valentine's Day to my Main Squeeze


Happy Friday! Karen H. here and today I am sharing a cute Valentine I made with some fun stamps from Crackerbox Palace. I created a colorful cardbase with some red polka dotted cardstock. I cut a square hole in the center of a white layer and stamped the sentiment in red ink. A second smaller square was cut with a die from Spellbinders. I stamped the cute monkey swinging in a heart on kraft paper and on white. I colored the heart swing red and paper pieced the monkey after a little coloring. He is “hanging” on a rope made with a thin washi tape.

Snowflake Shaker Warm Winter Wishes Card



Happy Friday! Karen H. here and today I am sharing a snowflake shaker card I made with some fun snowflake stamps from Crackerbox Palace. I am so glad shaker cards have become so popular again because they are fun to make! I created the opening in the navy blue square piece with a new die from Darice. I attached a piece of acetate behind the snowflake opening. In the center of the  white cardbase I stamped “Warm winter wishes” and a bunch of tiny snowflakes. I also stamped some lovely larger snowflakes from CBP in the front corners with white pigment ink. I used mounting tape to seal off the shaker part and dumped in some blue, white and snowflake sequins and a few glass shards. Here is another look after shaking the card:
 I used the die cut snowflake taken out of the opening in the front on the inside of the card with another perfect sentiment from Crackerbox Palace:
