More Guy's Cards and Blog Candy To Win!

Karen here today and I am sharing two guy’s cards I made with Crackerbox Palace stamps. 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 Trena!
Here is her winning comment from the CBP blog: Vicky, I dig both of these! I love, love, love the seascape one! Your water and coloring are perfect! Take care and STAY POSITIVE!
Trena, please email 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.
I had so much fun designing my cards for today’s blog post. I know Vicky showed guy’s cards last week too, but we can never have enough ideas for the guys, right? I love the layout of my first card (above) and when I found it on Pinterest, I clicked on the link and it brought me to this blog post which not only had two neat cards using the sketch, but also all the sizes of the pieces! So much easier to make the card not having to figure out what sizes work for an A2 card! I cut the pieces, rounded half the corners and sponged the edges, and layered on another piece of masculine dp. Then I stamped the keys, glasses and pocket knife on kraft paper, cut out and attached with mounting tape to raise. Of course the Happy Birthday is from Crackerbox Palace too.

My second card features a fun tearing technique I learned at a recent gathering of stampers I attended. It never occurred to me to tear down the center of a piece of cardstock, then roll up the center piece and attach. I sponged the edges of that piece and added some barbed wire corners. I used direct to paper with rust and yellow ink pads to create a sunset, then stamped the cowboy and his horse silhouette. Those pieces were layered on black and then on a kraft card base.  I just love how it turned out.
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
