For the Ladies and More Blog Candy!

Hey- Karen here and today I am sharing some cards I made featuring two different styles of ladies stamps that are available from Crackerbox Palace. You can win your choice of the stamps featured on ONE of these cards by leaving a comment on either blog. The simple requirements for a chance at winning this week's blog candy are below. 

But first- the winner of last week’s blog candy of the stamps featured on one of the cards last Thursday is …………………………………………..Hilde!! Here is her winning comment:  “Oh Karen, these are lovely, I really like the technique you used and the colour choices are perfect. You are an amazing Card Artist, there is no other word for it. Not sure which card I like better, am in love with the rose image. Just gorgeous. Blessings Hilde
Hilde, 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. 
My first card above just cracks me up and I hope it will the recipient as well. One of the reasons I was so drawn to Crackerbox Palace stamps thd first time I found them was their awesome line of funny funny stamps. Clara and the sentiment are just perfect for a card for someone we want to tease about their age. I am pretty magnificent myself:) I stamped Clara, paper pieced her suit and cap, colored a little and cut her out. I stamped the sentiment and cut out the circle with a nesties die. I embossed the white card with a numbers folder from Cuttlebug and attached the circle and Clara with pop dots to raise. The 4 shades of pleated ribbon are from Stampin’ Up. 

My second card features a very different style of stamp for the ladies. The Woman’s Back is very elegant and so I tried to make the card elegant as well. I started with a very subtle designer paper and stamped the Woman’s Back in the middle. I cut the dp into pieces and sponged it with different shades of ink. I put it back together, stamped the Joy sentiment and layered onto a black card. I added some butterflies, pearls and baker’s twine to complete the card.

So would you like to win the fun stamps featured on 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. 

2.) Leave a comment on either my blog or the Crackerbox Palace blog on the Thursday blogpost featuring CBP stamps.  If you leave a comment on BOTH blogs, you will be entered twice in the drawing.   The deadline to leave a comment will be the following Wednesday at Noon CST. Mr. Random will pick a winner from the comments and he or she will win the featured stamp(s). You must send me ( or Crackerbox Palace (  an email with your home address so the stamps can be mailed to you. If we do not hear from you within two weeks after we announce your win, and we can’t reach you through a blog, your prize will be forfeited.  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
