Christmas Silhouette Cards and More Blog Candy!

Hey Karen here and today I am sharing some Christmas silhouettes cards I made with 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 at either blog. The simple requirements for a chance at winning are below and now you have even more choices of what you can win!
But first- the winner of last Thursday’s blog candy is                                                     Cazzy!  Here is her winning comment from the CBP blog: “I love your card, I think this is the one bug I don't have, I must get mine out and use them!  Cazzy x”
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. 
So would you like to win the stamps featured on one of today’s cards or your choice of another CBP stamp? Here is how to win our  weekly blog candy:

Vicky or Karen will post a card or two every Thursday on both blogs. All you need to do is to leave a comment on either blog and if you leave a comment on both blogs you will have a double chance to win. We hope you also want to 'follow' the blogs. The following Wednesday a name will be picked at random and the winner will receive:

The featured stamps that we used in one of the cards that were posted,
OR you can pick out a stamp that is worth up to $10.00 and email us your choice
OR Vicky will email you a coupon code so you can go shopping at
Crackerbox Palace store for your choice of the stamp(s) you would like with a $10.00 coupon.

For a Bonus: if you use the blog candy stamps and post it on your blog, Splitcoast or somewhere else you will be able to choose another free stamp. So make sure you check out one of our blogs on Thursday! The winner will have 2 weeks to contact Karen or Vicky.

So leave us a comment for a chance to win and come back and see us again next week!

Crackerbox Palace smiles, Karen


  1. Fab-U-Lous! I really like the gold/red one because it's so festive. The Santa card is gorgeous too and that is great paper!

  2. Hi gals, wonderful cards Karen! Love that first card with the red. Silhouettes are great for us that can't print in color! The stamp is perfect with the background embossing envelope!! The second card is so sweet. Makes me think of smiles on little faces. =)
    Hugs, Sarah

  3. All nice, but especially love the silhouette card with the music behind it. Very clever and like the way you've designed it all. Edna

  4. I do love silhouette cards and your card is a perfect example of why. I have two wonderful card designs in mind to make already with both of those stamps :) Oh, and I absolutely must get me one (or more) of those diffusers! Great job and GREAT inspiration!
