Naughty List Christmas Card

Ericka here, I hope you all had a happy Thanksgiving and are ready to get some Black Friday shopping done! Don't forget to check out the sale below for some great deals. I'm not sure about you, but sometimes family gatherings can be stressful and I might have slipped and gotten myself on the naughty list lol. I'm blaming the wine. If you are like me, then here is the perfect card.

I started stamping the Glass with Lights stamp on watercolor paper. I colored up the image with Karin Watercolor markers and added a little wine in the bottom of the glass. 

Once my image was dry, I added some white gel pen accents on the lights. I then stamped the Fun and Games sentiment in black ink.

I finished my card with some fun sequins and I'm crossing my fingers Santa gives me a pass this time lol.

Check out the awesome Black Friday Sale going on now till November 30th!

Iris Folded Rinea Foil Ornament Card

Hello, festive crafty loving friends! Tracy here, and today I have a fun iris folding holiday card to share. Here are all of the details.

Pine Branch                Joy by Terri

Rinea Foils Used:

Other Products Used:
Cardstock- White
Archival Ink- Library Green
Embossing Pad
Black Embossing Powder
Iris Folding Pattern
Circle Dies
Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L- E-Z Runner Ultra, Adhesive Dots Medium, Crafty Foam Tape White

First I cut a piece of white cardstock to 3.75x5 and using a circle die, cut out the area for the ornament. Cut 1" strips of the Rinea Foil you would like to use. Then using a scoreboard, I folded each of the strips in half. For this pattern, I used 5 different colors of foil. Using an iris folding pattern as a guide I began adding piece by piece, the folded Rinea Foil. Once you have added all the pieces and the pattern is complete. Using foam tape, I adhered the white cardstock layer to the red foil layer (4x5.25). Add this to the card base.

I added a hand-cut gold foil piece to the top of the ornament and then doodled a loop up to the branch.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Elegance Christmas Cards with Shanna

Hello and welcome! This is Shanna with Caffeinated Craftiness and I am here to share some simple and elegant Christmas Slimline cards!!

I love a card that comes together easily, as I don't always have as much time as I would like to create.  This card is a breeze to assemble. The Fancy Swirl Christmas Tree is the star of the show and heat embosses BEAUTIFULLY!  Add in the Merry Christmas Brush sentiment and it's a perfect match!

For my first card, I heat embossed both stamps in a gold embossing powder--so pretty in real life!  I wanted to add some contrast and used ink blending to do so.  This card uses Distress Oxides in Antique Linen and Crackling Campfire.  I went heavier on the application of ink around the edges, blending lighter toward the center of the tree.  It automatically draws your eye inwards, keeping the focus on the tree despite the longer card base of a slimline.  I used up a scrap of gold Rinea foil paper to create a cute and shiny bow as well.

For my second card I kept the same arrangement--just switched up my colors!  I used a rose gold embossing powder and Forest Moss and Tattered Rose Distress Oxides.  I really like the contrast with the dark green around the edges.  These are 2 colors I would have NEVER blended side-by-side prior to this card, but I am so glad I did!  A few scattered sequins for Ornaments added a bit more bling to this card for a different look than the first.  

What are the embellishments you reach for most in your crafting??  I love sequins and such--but that foil paper from Rinea is another fun way to embellish too!  

You can find more inspiration, and share your own fabulous projects in the Crackerbox and Suzy Flaunt it if You Made it Facebook group!  There is a monthly sale kicking off today as well, be sure to check your wishlist and shop!! Visit the sale categories HERE.

That wraps up my post for today, I will be back here soon with another dose of red rubber inspiration!  Be sure to follow along with me over on Instagram and Facebook to keep up with all my caffeinated adventures!  Till next time, bye!

Festive Christmas Stamped Card

 Hello there, Martha Lucia here with a Festive Christmas Stamped Card, created with the stamps Glass with Lights stamp and the Joy by Terri Sentiment.

The Glass with Lights stamp is a big stamp perfect to create any type of cards. I decided to make one traditional size and shape with multiple layers. For the card base, I used Early Espresso card stock. Then I die cut the Funky Die Cover Plate onto Olive Green card stock and matted this layer with red card stock. I pasted all the pieces directly over the card base using E-Z Runner Tape.

In a separate piece of White Smooth Card Stock, I stamped the Glass with Lights stamp with VersaFine Onix and colored it with Illustrator Markers from Spectrum Noir. At the same time, I stamped the sentiment Joy by Terri. I mat the stamped layer with the same colors of card stock and pasted over the decorated card base with 3D Foam Squares or Crafty Foam Tape.

To add the festive touch, I added two tiny banners in red and Silver Glitter Tonic paper.

You have a few more days with this month's promotion but remember that this week Crackerbox & Suzy Stamps will have fabulous promotions. 

Now is time to wish you a blessed Thanksgiving Day. I am grateful to God and all my family and friends for my life and my days!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Christmas Tree Mixed Media Card

Happy Saturday! I hope you are all having a good weekend and are getting ready to celebrate Thanksgiving. Ericka here and today I have a Mixed Media card using Rinea Foils and this great Christmas Tree Fun stamp.

I love this stamp and thought I would try a new technique I saw on the Rinea blog with the Rinea Ghost Ink and foils. I started by selecting three foils in the blue shade and crumpled them up. I then straightened them out and lightly applies the Ghost Ink on the surface. 


I dried the ink and then used a paper towel that I had sprayed isoprobe alcohol and lightly wiped the surface. I carefully tore the corners of the foil to give it a more distressed look and then glued it to my card base.

I stamped the Christmas Tree Fun stamp on another piece of cardstock and heat embossed it with pink embossing powder. I then used an embossing pen to color in the star and heat emboss it in platinum.

Thanks for stopping by for a fun way to use Rinea foil on your cards. Go and check out Rinea Foil Papers they are so fun to play with to create a variety of projects. Also, we have a 20% off sale on Christmas stamps if you visit the STORE. Just add them into your cart and you will then see the discount on the stamps once they are in your cart.

Christmas CAS card

Hello and welcome crafty friends! Maria Pilar is here with a new Christmas CAS card.

Today I bring you a card from the collaboration we have this month between Crackerbox & Suzy Stamps and Rinea.
This is a very Christmas card. I used a layer of red Rinea paper foiled to make a frame on the white cardboard where the Holly Border and Merry Christmas stamps are stamped with different colors of Stazon ink. 

On the other hand, I stamped the Ornament Dangle stamp on a piece of blue foil that appears hanging from the top of the card. Here's a closer view at the detail of the stamp stamped on the foil. I love using foil because, depending on the light it gives it, we see a variety of colors.

Crackerbox & Suzy Stamps is offering 20% OFF on Christmas and Winter categories this month. You can visit the stamps  HERE.

Thank you very much for stopping by! Happy shopping!
