Christmas Blog Candy

Hi Stampers, OH OH OH Christmas is coming fast.
Well, stampers it's my (Vicky's) week for the blog candy.
The stamps I used are from Crackerbox Palace.
This card is 51/2x81/2. The directions are farther down.
I stamped the saying and cut it out with Spellbinder as well as the green background card stock. I measured and cut the pink in one piece. I stamped the Merry Christmas.
I stamped the snowflakes border with Martha Stewart punch. I used the snowflakes that were punched out and glued them back on the card.  
I stamped our snowgirl and colored her with Copic markers.
Here is what the card looks like on the side with the folds.

This is how the card was cut and folded. I put it sideways on the scor-board and from the end scored it at 21/4, 41/4 etc.

 
Here is the second card for the candy.
This one is pretty straight forward. Stamped and embossed the saying then cut it out with Spellbinder.
I stamped Santa on white and colored it with Copic.
The white circle, green scalloped and red circles are cut with Spellbinders.

This is just to show all of Santa's toys.

The winner of last week’s blog candy of the stamps featured on one of the cards last Thursday is NanaConnie! Here is her winning comment from my blog: I adore the pup in the stocking! How perfect for an animal lover at Christmas. That embossing in the background is superb!”

Happy Thanksgiving and Holiday Joy Cards



Happy Thanksgiving to everyone from Crackerbox Palace and Karen and Vicky!

Diane, please send me or Crackerbox Palace your address and your choice of which stamps you want (see your options below), so we can get you the stamps you have won.
My cards today are holiday love cards. The first one is to wish someone special Thanksgiving Love From My Heart. I did not have a Happy Thanksgiving stamp but I did have the Cabinet stamp and that makes me think of love from the kitchen. I cut it out of tan cardstock and left the cabinet doors somewhat open. I added the “from my Heart”, some pine cones and a sentiment cut out using an embossing folder.

My second card features Christmas Joy to the World and a sweet pup checking out his Christmas stocking. I paper pieced the pup and stocking and attached him with pop dots over an embossed background. The Joy to the World was cut out and embossed with a Nestabilities and hung on a green piece that was also pop dotted to raise.

Autumn Blessing

Happy Thanksgiving
Chick made the card with Crackerbox Palace stamps.
The leaves and saying are stamped on white card stock and painted with Smooch and cut out with Spellbinder die.
The red oval and black scalloped are cut out with Spellbinder also. The black pieces around the image that are over the red oval are the scrap pieces from the punch.
The strip across the card was embossed with Cuttlebug and just cut a strip of the folder size card. The black strip behind it has been punched with Martha Stewart punch.
The acorn and leaf are embellishments bought. They were also painted with Smooch.
 
Everyone at Crackerbox wishes you a Happy Thanksgiving.

Blog Candy For You To Win

Happy Birthday Buick
 
Hi Stampers, Vicky here this week.
The card today is a birthday card for some special guy. I stamped the Buick on Ex-Press card stock and colored with Copic markers. I did color the crome on the car with a silver pen. The image is cut out with Spellbinders and then I sponged the edges with Distress Ink. I cut a dark red card stock to back the image. I added the silver Nail Heads in the corners to accent the silver from the car. I stamped the Happy Birthday, cut it out and sponged the Distress ink on the edges of that too. Both of the images are from Crackerbox Palace stamps.

The winner of last week’s blog candy of the stamps featured on one of the cards last Thursday is Kelly C.! Here is her winning comment from my blog: The stamps are wonderful - you can't go wrong with a silhouette image can you? Your cards are beautiful and have my mind spinning with ideas!

Autumn Blessing

HAPPY FALL
 
Chick made this card. She started with putting green card stock on a dark brown card. She used Spellbinder 12" leaf border and sponged Brillance green over the leaves and put a ribbon through the loops in the border. A piece of dark red was cut for the left side of the card where Chick put the ribbon and leaves. On a scrap piece of gold paper, she stamped and colored Autumn Blessings and cut that piece with Spellbinder. The pumpkin from Spellbinder was cut out 7 times and folded in half and glued back to back. She added some of the left over leaf border to put over the pumpkin. The saying on the right side of the card was stamped and embossed, (that's why the word God is reflecting the flash). Then last added the 3 embellishments on the upper right hand side of the card.
Thanks for stopping by. Vicky

Cazzy, please send me or Crackerbox Palace your address and your choice of which stamps you want (see your options below), so we can get you the stamps you have won.
My cards today are Christmas cards made with silhouette stamps from Crackerbox Palace. I love silhouette stamps because they look great without a lot of coloring. I embossed the fun carolers group with red sparkly embossing powder in a circle created using an embossing diffuser from Tim Holtz. The musical notes background was made with an embossing folder from Darice and then sponged with brown distress ink.

The inside also shows the embossed notes and the unembossed circle in the center and I added a fun sentiment from CBP and a tree made with origami folds out of holiday wrapping paper like in this tutorial.

My second card features Santa’s sleigh and reindeer in silhouette that I also embossed, this time with black embossing powder across a yellow moon. The beautiful Crackerbox Palace sentiment was raised with pop dots over a background of Christmas wishes dp.

Hi stamping friends. I just was so excited when I was looking through the Just Cards magazine and saw the card that Karen sent in.
This is the card that is one page 52.
We also had this card on our blogs for the Blog Candy and Karen S. won the stamps. What a fun looking card.
I just love the Just Card magazine, it has so many great cards. I can look at it 3 or more times and still see something new. With more than 300 card samples there is a lot to look at. Hope you pick one up and check out Karen's card!
