Fun Fold Thank You Card


Karen H. here today and I am sharing a fun fold card made with Crackerbox Palace stamps. I saw this card and tutorial here and just had to try this very different fold. It took a little while to figure it out, and I changed some of the measurements on mine to make it simpler. I cut and scored the stair steps in a cream colored card stock, then embossed the whole thing with a Sizzix embossing folder. I stamped the beautiful lady scene and sentiment from Crackerbox Palace on kraft paper, cut them out and attached. The words on the stair steps were created with my Silhouette die cutting machine. Here is another look at the card showing the stair steps. The card folds to fit in an A2 envelope.

I like how the card turned out and hope you do too. Please visit the website to see these and many other awesome Crackerbox Palace stamps.

Pink Shoe Cards at Crackerbox Palace



Karen H. here today and I am sharing two shoe cards made with Crackerbox Palace stamps. My first card above is for a woman who loves shoes- and who doesn’t? I stamped the line of fun shoes on a patterned paper and created a shelf by raising it with pop dots. The sentiment was stamped on the same dp. The shoe on top of the shelf is made with a Silhouette cutting file. 
The first time I saw these sweet little girl shoes from Crackerbox Palace, I knew I had to have them and make a baby card with them. I created the card base with a pink two sided card stock and cut a border with a Martha Stewart border punch. I embossed the sentiment with a Cuttlebug embossing folder, then stamped and cut out two pair of sweet little girl shoes. I added some pink floral gems to complete the card.

I like how the cards turned out and hope you do too. Please visit the website to see these and many other awesome Crackerbox Palace stamps.

Stampscapes cabin on land

Hi, Vicky here today to share some new Stampscape stamps.

I really like the new stamps from Stampscapes. Kevin has done a lot of great images.
This is his 343I Bayou Shack that would usually be in the water, but I wanted the shack on land. I did keep the cabin on the posts rather than putting it right on the ground. Some cabins in the northern part of our state has cabins on posts.
The hill on the left side is named Rocky Waterside, but it makes a great hill on land also.
That is one thing I really, really like about Kevin's stamps is that you can use his stamps and change them from land to water, or water to land.
I colored the scene with Copic markers, and stamped the clouds with Brilliance ink.
 

Hope you can stop by and take a look at Kevin's new stamps.

Father's Day Grill

Vicky here today. What does your husband like to do on Father's Day?
John likes to grill out. He does the grilling since he doesn't trust me, and I am not sure why since he has never let me, but I haven't really argued to do it either. But he likes to grill and have the kids over.
The apron and the stamp on it are two different stamps. We have 4 stamps for the apron.
These are copied from the wood blocks but you can get them in cling foam here.


Dad Sail Boat

This is another card that Currie made. She colored it with markers and added brads on the top of the sails. The black cardstock is distressed with Tim Holtz tool. Currie also used Distress ink around the edges of the image.
Hope you enjoy the idea.
Thanks for stopping by.

Wishes Granted for the Guy in Your Life


Karen here today and I am sharing a fun card for a guy I made recently with stamps from Crackerbox Palace. Guy Fairy Patrick makes me smile and he is granting a wish to the lucky guy who receives this card. I stamped, colored and paper pieced him and added a “Make a Wish” sentiment I cut out with my Silhouette. When you open the front gate you see the granted wish: a mug of cold beer and a prescription for the perfect day whether it be Father’s Day or his birthday.



I like how it turned out and hope you do too. Please visit the website to see these and many other awesome Crackerbox Palace stamps.

Happy Father's Day Jeep

Vicky here today. But Currie Churchill did the Father's Day card.
She stamped the tires and spark plugs with Distress ink. The background was inked with Distress ink also. Currie colored the brad. I like that the cardstock the image is stamped on is not square, I think it adds interest. Currie also used Distress ink around the edges on the green cardstock with the sentiment.

Gorgeous Baby Boy Card


Karen here today and I am sharing a baby boy card I made recently with some gorgeous stamps from Crackerbox Palace. I love this mother and baby boy stamp from CBP.  I decided he was gorgeous so I used the Hello Gorgeous sentiment with them. I simply stamped and cut them out with a circle Spellbinders die. The card front was made with another Spellbinders die and I wove some ribbon and baker’s twine through the holes to complete this CAS card.
I like how it turned out and hope you do too. Please visit the website to see these and many other awesome Crackerbox Palace stamps.
