4th of July is Almost Here!


Karen here and today I am sharing a 4th of July card I made for a very special person with Crackerbox Palace stamps. Hard to believe it is almost the 4th of July- I say it every year- where does the summer go so fast? I was playing with a new technique using toilet paper and designed this card with one of my favorite Crackerbox Palace silhouette stamps showing a patriotic parade of kids. We loved to be part of the parades in my small town where I grew up so this stamp just makes me smile. I explained this technique and shared the source where I learned it in this blog post on my blog. For this card I used an embossing folder from Darice for the top tp part and also punched some stars from the tp piece as well. I stamped CBP’s 4th of July Parade in black on the red card base for a fun partriotic card.

Wine Lover's Birthday Card for Vicky!


Karen here and today I am sharing the Happy Birthday card I made for a very special person with Crackerbox Palace stamps. The owner of CBP and my dear friend, Vicky Briggs, celebrated her birthday last weekend and I made her this card with CBP stamps and BoBunny glitter paste (which CBP also sells at stamp shows.) I pulled out a couple fun stencils and sponged the background of the white A2 card with the ink getting lighter towards the left side of the card. I stamped, cut out and sponged ink on the wine bottle and wine glass, then applied red glitter paste through two other stencils. I stamped a fun Crackerbox Palace sentiment and added some Nuvo Crystal Drops to complete the wine lover’s card.

School Color Graduation Thank You Card


Karen here and today I am sharing a graduation thank you card I made for my sister and nephew with Crackerbox Palace stamps. In fact I made 50 of them! Thank goodness for my MISTI! After I did all the cutting and die cutting, I lined up the three graduation stamps from Crackerbox Palace and stamped each of the 50 card fronts easily and quickly. I used my nephew’s school colors and dies from Tim Holtz and My Creative Time. Loving the great graduation stamps from CBP that can be found here on the website!

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.
