Happy Dust Fun Fold Card


Happy Friday! Karen H. here and today I am sharing a new fun fold card featuring Crackerbox Palace’s funny funny stamps. I love trying new folds and using humor in my cards, so this card makes me happy. I learned how to do this fold from this video on line. I stamped the lol fairy godmother with versamark and heat embossed her with sparkly glitter embossing powder. Then I cut out her stitched square frame with a die from Lil’ Inker. The opening in the front of the card was cut with another stitched square die also from Lil’ Inker. I punched the top of the folded inside piece with a star border punch from Martha Stewart. Then I stamped the Happy Dust saying in purple on the yellow. I stamped the sentiment again and the magic wand with versamark and purple embossing powder, cut them out and attached. Here are a couple more pictures showing the card open, from the top and closed.

Divine Slinky Dress Card


Happy Friday! Karen H. here and today I am sharing a divine card I made with a vertical stamp from Crackerbox Palace and a beautiful Black Slinky Dress stamp from So Suzy Stamps.  The owner of So Suzy Stamps is a friend of Vicky and John of CBP and her high quality rubber stamps are made by them. I decided to make this dress black and white and slinky. I cut out black and white card cover pieces and stamped the dress twice - white on black and black on white. Then I cut the pieces diagonally and matched up the stamped dresses. I stamped CBP’s vertical Divine in white and punched a border along the black edge with an ek success border punch. The two toned front piece as attached to a white cardbase.

Wine Shaker Card


Happy Friday! Karen H. here and today I am sharing a fun card I made with a lol wine stamp from Crackerbox Palace. CBP has a whole line of wine and coffee stamps here on their website. I decided to make a wine shaker card with some new dies from My Creative Time. I started with a pretty purple background created with Brushos and glossy paper. Then I cut three wine glasses with the dies. I stamped the funny “This Wine” choice stamp with a black archival ink. I attached some acetate behind the wine glasses and created a border around them with two layers of thin mounting tape. Then I dumped in a bunch of sequins and beads before attaching that piece to a white card base.

Here is another look with a bigger shake of the card:

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.
