Hey- Karen here and today I am sharing two cards I made with some cards featuring sentiment stamps that are available from Crackerbox Palace. You can win your choice of the stamps featured on the front of one of these cards by leaving a comment at either blog. The simple requirements for a chance at winning this week’s blog candy are below.
Joyce, please send me or Crackerbox Palace your address and your choice of which stamps you want, so we can get you the stamps you have won. And remember you can win another CBP stamp of your choice simply by posting a card you made with the stamps you won to your blog or Splitcoast Stampers gallery and sending us a link.
I decided to focus on sentiments this week. When I make a card I am always thinking- what is the card trying to communicate? Thank you, birthday wishes, sympathy? What am I trying to say? I guess that is why I am always drawn to stamp companies who have a great line of sentiment stamps and Crackerbox Palace has hundreds of perfect sentiment stamps. I also played around with two major fads on in bloggerville right now: chevrons and hexagons. I used a chevron embossing folder (from Stampin’ Up) on my first card and various shades of purple to make the background. I stamped the beautiful sentiment and cut it out with a die from Quik Cutz. I added a butterfly (Martha Stewart) and pearl to complete the CAS card.
My second card features another beautiful sentiment from CBP, hexagons cut out after embossing with an embossing folder from Craft Concepts, and another butterfly and pearl.
So would you like to win the fun stamps featured on the front of one of today’s cards? Here is how to win our weekly blog candy:
1.) We have decided that becoming a follower on both blogs is going to be something we would prefer you do but not a requirement. My blog is here and the Crackerbox Palace blog is here.
(firstname.lastname@example.org) or Crackerbox Palace (email@example.com) an email with your home address so the stamps can be mailed to you. And if you post a card to your blog or to Splitcoast Stampers with the stamps you won and send a link to Crackerbox Palace, you will win another Crackerbox Palace stamp of your choice!!
Crackerbox Palace smiles, Karen
