Happy Graduation Chalkboard Card


Happy Friday! Karen H. here and today I am sharing a graduation card I made with Crackerbox Palace’s awesome stamps. I haven’t played with the chalkboard technique in quite a while, and decided it would be perfect for a graduation card. I started with a piece of black cardstock and heat embossed the diploma and Happy Graduation with white embossing powder. I stamped the rolled diploma, graduation cap and stars with white pigment ink and deliberately sponged and smeared the white pigment ink to make the chalkboard look. I drew some white lines with a white colored pencil to complete the card front, and attached the “chalkboard” to a white A2 card base.

Happy Dust Fun Fold Card


Happy Friday! Karen H. here and today I am sharing a new fun fold card featuring Crackerbox Palace’s funny funny stamps. I love trying new folds and using humor in my cards, so this card makes me happy. I learned how to do this fold from this video on line. I stamped the lol fairy godmother with versamark and heat embossed her with sparkly glitter embossing powder. Then I cut out her stitched square frame with a die from Lil’ Inker. The opening in the front of the card was cut with another stitched square die also from Lil’ Inker. I punched the top of the folded inside piece with a star border punch from Martha Stewart. Then I stamped the Happy Dust saying in purple on the yellow. I stamped the sentiment again and the magic wand with versamark and purple embossing powder, cut them out and attached. Here are a couple more pictures showing the card open, from the top and closed.

Divine Slinky Dress Card


Happy Friday! Karen H. here and today I am sharing a divine card I made with a vertical stamp from Crackerbox Palace and a beautiful Black Slinky Dress stamp from So Suzy Stamps.  The owner of So Suzy Stamps is a friend of Vicky and John of CBP and her high quality rubber stamps are made by them. I decided to make this dress black and white and slinky. I cut out black and white card cover pieces and stamped the dress twice - white on black and black on white. Then I cut the pieces diagonally and matched up the stamped dresses. I stamped CBP’s vertical Divine in white and punched a border along the black edge with an ek success border punch. The two toned front piece as attached to a white cardbase.

Wine Shaker Card


Happy Friday! Karen H. here and today I am sharing a fun card I made with a lol wine stamp from Crackerbox Palace. CBP has a whole line of wine and coffee stamps here on their website. I decided to make a wine shaker card with some new dies from My Creative Time. I started with a pretty purple background created with Brushos and glossy paper. Then I cut three wine glasses with the dies. I stamped the funny “This Wine” choice stamp with a black archival ink. I attached some acetate behind the wine glasses and created a border around them with two layers of thin mounting tape. Then I dumped in a bunch of sequins and beads before attaching that piece to a white card base.

Here is another look with a bigger shake of the card:
