Warm Winter Wishes

Hello, I hope you are having fun with the Winter Coffee Loving Cardmakers Blog Hop.
Here are the details for the blog hop!

Having the theme of winter using coffee or cocoa, I decided to use cocoa. I am an avid coffee drinker but love the saying and the image.

Happiness Is... and hot cocoa and you by my side has been stamped with VersaFine Sepia and embossed with clear embossing powder.
I like the Happiness Is stamp because there are 18 stamps in this series, and many others you could add.
I added glitter glue to the snowflakes to add some sparkle.
I stamped the Snowman Cup with Memento ink and colored with Copic markers.

And now some GOOD NEW!
I hope you enjoyed the card.
Here are the stamps I used:

Joy Tag

Christmas is coming fast!
Do you use a tag as a tag/card when giving a gift?
When time is short, like it is when Christmas comes screaming in, I do.
Here is an idea for you for a tag or a card.
The 3 dots in the upper right corner are Nuvo covered in glitter, a little like tiny snowballs.
Not sure if this shows that the ornament has lacquer over it to make it shinny.
Here is the link to find the stamps.
So Suzy
Hope you enjoyed the idea.

Hello Stampers, 
I know it has been a long time but I have some exciting news to share with you. We bought another stamp company named So Suzy Stamps. We pressed Suzy's stamps for years and one day Suzy called and asked if we were interested in her company. YES! She has some great images and sayings. Crackerbox was created to bring humor and a little sass, Suzy takes it to snarky. So now we have a wide range of sayings and a lot more beautiful images. 

Thanksgiving is for giving thanks and that's what we want to do.
We want to thank you for  your continued support.
We are going to have FREE SHIPPING from Thursday 23rd - Tuesday 28th.

CAS Hello Card with Clarity Stencil Brushes

Karen here and today I am sharing a pretty Hello card I made with some Crackerbox Palace stamps and Clarity Stencil Brushes. I love the soft look achieved when using the Clarity Stencil brushes with any inks. I started with an A2 top folding white card. I used a Clarity Stencil brush to brush on Faded Jeans Distress Ink along the bottom of a piece of white cardstock. Then I brushed on orange and yellow dye inks and finished with a little Tumbled Glass Distress Ink along the top. I stamped Crackerbox Palace’s pine tree and brush stamps, cut the piece into three pieces and attached to the white card base. I added a CBP stamped “hello” to complete the card.

Have a Kitty Cat Birthday

Karen here and today I am sharing a birthday card I made with some Crackerbox Palace stamps and Clarity Stencil Brushes. I am loving the subtle soft look that is so easy to achieve with the Clarity brushes and ink. I inked orange ink through a fern stencil onto the orange card base for a tone on tone look. Then I stamped and paper pieced the sleeping kitty and stamped the perfect sentiment from Crackerbox Palace. This is going to be my husband’s birthday card from me and our kitty Lucky.  He always says he wants to be reincarnated as a cat in a loving home like ours. What a life- eat, sleep, play, repeat.

Soft Embossed Sympathy Card

Karen here and today I am sharing a sympathy card I made with some Crackerbox Palace stamps and Clarity Stencil Brushes. I am loving the subtle soft look that is so easy to achieve with the Clarity brushes and ink. I heat embossed Crackerbox Palace’s beautiful rose bouquet with white embossing powder in the center of my card front. I applied a strip of temporary tape on all four sides for a mask and then used a Clarity Stencil Brush to bring in soft color in the rectangle opening around the roses. After I removed the temporary tape strips, I applied just a little pink around the edges of the card front to soften those as well. I stamped CBP’s “With Sympathy” to complete the front of the card. I also stamped one of my favorite Crackerbox Palace sentiments on the inside of the card:

The Clarity Stencil Brushes are available at Crackerbox Palace on line, but the website is in transition right now. You can find out more about them by calling the store at 608-755-4638 or emailing them at

Love You to the Moon and Back Tri-Fold Card

Karen here and today I am sharing a tri-fold card I made with some new Crackerbox Palace stamps. I have always loved the saying “I love you to the moon and back” and was happy that CBP has it for sale along with the moon and stars stamps. I folded a long card in thirds, punched a circle out of the top and added a punched row of stars along the bottom of the front of the card. I did all the stamping on the front of the card and added the moon circle piece in the circular hole I had punched. Here is a look at the 2nd and 3rd panels where I added stars and sentiment die cuts from Tonic Studios to complete the card:
