I Used to Jog?


Happy Friday! Karen H. here and I am sharing a lol card featuring Clara, one of my favorite Crackerbox Palace ladies. I stamped her on cream colored cardstock and paper pieced her suit and cap. I cut a square with pierced squares die from Spellbinder and attached it diagonally. I embossed and sponged some white squares to resemble ice cubes and added the funny sentiment at the bottom. Clara was attached with pop dots for dimension.

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

Crazy In Love

Hi friends, Vicky here today.  Are you crazy in love???
This card was made a couple of years ago. I posted this because it is a throw back from the days we used slide frames. This frame is an extra large one. I stamped the hearts on it and popped it up with pop dots.
Our Mad In Love stamp is colored with Copic.
If you notice, the couple are in straight jackets because they are 'Crazy in Love'.

Valentine's Day card with Crackerbox stamps

Hi, Vicky here today. I got back from CHA on Wednesday and will get the pictures straighten out and blog those this weekend. I saw a lot of new and exciting things so stop back and check it out.

But for today, I am posting a Valentine's Card.
I started the card with paper pieces I had on my desk just sitting there wanting to be used. I found the dotted piece big enough to cut a frame with a Spellbinder die and embossed it. The white piece is Ex-press paper and also cut with Spellbinder and embossed. I stamped our lady and colored her with Copic markers.
The heart was cut from Spellbinder heart die and embossed in both sizes. The LOVE is and embellishment I found in my stash.
The pearls were put on the front and back of the saying. I also added the pearls at the bottom of the image. When I bought the string of pearls, they were all connected together at one end. I cut 5 strings off of the bunch and they are attached to the bottom pearl, free to move.
Thank you for stopping by.
Crackerbox hugs, Vicky

CHA Trade Card


Karen here and guess where I and Vicky are right now? At CHA in California!! It has been a life long dream of mine to go to CHA and see all the new and exciting craft and stamping products in all the booths in person, and thanks to Vicky of Crackerbox Palace, I am here!! We will give a full report when we are back, but I wanted to pop in here and share the Make and Take Exchange card I made to trade with other stampers from all around the U.S. and world! This is one of the my favorite cards that I made with Crackerbox Palace stamps and  Bisters in 2014, and it is even going to be part of an article about Bister powders in Scrap and Stamp Arts  magazine to be published in June of 2015. I heat embossed the beautiful Sea Breeze scene (from Crackerbox Palace) on water color paper with black detail embossing powder. Then I created the sunset scene by sprinkling on red, yellow and blue Bister powders and spritzing with water. Bister powders are available at I Brake for Stamps  and Della from IBFS even donated some samples of Bisters so that those receiving this card at CHA can try Bisters for themselves.

The stamps from Crackerbox Palace used on this card are going to be 20% off at Crackerbox Palace.com all month! That's a great deal so grab it while you can!

Crackerbox and CHA smiles, Karen

Wishing You Were Here!


Happy Friday! Karen H. here and I am sharing the card I made with my lucky sister in mind. She is in Arizona while we in Wisconsin are freezing our rear ends off. I love this fun snow shoveling guy – he looks about as happy as my husband does shoveling snow on these cold cold days. I stamped him on a white card base and cut out a curvy border and around his shovel so you can see the snowflake dp on the inside of the card. I paper pieced his coat, hat and shovel and added a white pompom for his hat. I stamped a little snow and the perfect sentiment to complete the card.

**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! **

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! **
