Flying High!

Hi everyone! Maria Pilar here featuring a new card with the Flying High sentiment accompanied by the sweet Swinging Fairies stamp from Crackerbox & Suzy Stamps


To create this card I used kraft card stock to stamp these two stamps and make hot embossing using white Wow embossing powders. Then I glued this card onto another red one and all together on a kraft cardstock as a base card. 
Once I had my composition done, I made a frame with a red Copic marker.


And the last touch was a few small droplets of red liquid pear all over the surface of the card.


It is the first time that I stamp rubber stamps on kraft cardboard and also hot embossing. 
I have to improve but I liked the experience.

The Chill of Winter

Happy Tuesday and I hope you are all doing well. Ericka here with a card using this Knit Sweater set.

 

I love this cute set and had fun coloring it up with colored pencils. I then made my background by masking off the sides of the background and using stencil brushes to blend Distress Oxides in blues.


I then fussy cut out the images and used foam tape to attach them to my background.

 

I thought The Chill of Winter sentiment in white embossing powder would be the perfect match for this cozy set.


Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful rest of your week!

Cinderella Card: 2020 Throwback- January Edition

Hello Crackerbox & Suzy Stamps fans!  This is Shanna from Caffeinated Craftiness .  While pondering what I wanted to make for today's post---inspiration for a mini-series struck!  I love using new stamps as much as the next crafter does, but where does that leave all the beautiful stamps I have already used??  Rather than tuck them away I am choosing to pull them out and be re-inspired!  Every month I will take a look at last year's cards that I made in the same month.  For January I am revisiting this post and recreating a card with the same stamps... I am really excited about this as I love looking back on projects and tweaking them into something that fits my current crafty-style.  What about you?

Here is the inspiration card from January 2020.  You can see the whole post here with more details.


Crackerbox & Suzy Stamps featured are:

Now on to the new cards.  I have a quick IG video over on my channel here if you want to see the process in action, but will explain the basics here as well!

I have been in love with creating gel prints with the new Gel Press I received for Christmas!  They are seriously fun and addicting.  One technique I had yet to try on it though was stamping!  The idea is you lay down a color, then "stamp off" the ink/paint to create a resist type image.  I thought the  Shoe Background stamp would work beautifully for this, and it did!!  I played down a thin layer of gold paint on my Gel Press using a brayer, then stamped the  Shoe Background stamp repeatedly across the plate. Here is a closeup of the finished background. 



My plate is large, 8x10", so I actually was able to create 2 full backgrounds in one printing session....YAY!   So that means today I have 2 cards to share!  

The gel prints underwent a few more layers with metallic white and a splash of Cinderella blue before I pulled the print up with paper, but I love how they turned out!  All that was left was adding a sentiment.  I didn't want to cover a lot of the background up, for obvious reasons lol, so I stuck with a simple die cut rectangle of white cardstock and gold heat embossed  Cinderella Shoes sentiment. 


The final touches were some scraps of gold glitter cardstock to add an extra touch of sparkle and tie in a bit more with my inspiration source.  I did both cards a little differently with the glittered cardstock and equally like them both.  Which one is YOUR favorite??  Let me know in the comments below!




You can find more inspiration, and share your own fabulous projects in the Crackerbox and Suzy Flaunt it if You Made it Facebook group!  
 
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!

Knit Sweater with a Valentine Twist Card

 Hi there, Martha Lucia here to share the Valentine Card with a winter theme. I am featuring the Knit Sweater and PS I love you sentiment from Crackerbox & Suzy Stamps.


The base of my card is basic black card stock and I pasted a decorated layer directly over it using E-Z Runner Permanent Tape. Then, I die cut a third layer using the second size of the Mosaic Triangle Edge Rectangle Dies onto White Smooth Card Stock. In addition, I created a basic black mat for this piece to see it through the tiny triangles.


I stamped the Knit Sweater onto the white layer using Simon Hurley Dye Ink Pad Bee Sting from Ranger. Then, I a separate piece of Real Red card stock, I stamped the same image but using VersaFine Pigment Ink Onix. I fussy cut the image and arranged it over the white layer with crafty foam tape. In addition, I stamped the sentiment PS I love You on the right side corner. I pasted this layer over the decorated card base using crafty foam tape.

As a final touch, a small paper flower pasted with a Glue Dot over one of the knit sweaters!

Thank you for stopping by and see you soon!

A Warmed Winter Friendship Card

Hello everyone! First of all, I wish you a very very very Happy New Year 2021! I start the year by sharing my first card for Crackerbox & SuzyStamps. It is a winter card with a lovely message and a cheerful snowman.


I create this card using two stamps: Chill of Winter and Snowman Joy and a designer paper on the white card stock at the base of the card.

First I stamped the Snowman Joy stamp with Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto a piece of textured card stock and colored some parts of the stamp. This ink is perfect for later coloring with alcohol markers.
On the other hand, on a vellum strip, I stamped the Chill of Winter sentiment with Stazon Black Cherry ink that I can use on any surface. Then I glued it to the decorated paper by turning around from behind. Next, I pasted the cardboard with the snowman stamp that I love. He's very happy, isn't he?

And now I only had to glue the whole set to the cardboard base I liked the contrast between the background of the designer paper and the clarity given by the stamps.

Thanks for stopping by and have a nice Sunday!

Dandelion Fluff Birthday Card With An Abstract Background

Happy New Year! Ericka here with a bright card I made using Dandelion Fluff and the Birthday 7 sentiment.


I started out by creating the background with some acrylic paints I had and using a brayer to apply them to white cardstock. Once I was happy with the look, I let the background dry.

 


I cut the panel down and then stamped the Dandelion Fluff with Versafine ink along with the fun Birthday 7 sentiment. 


I then heat embossed the images and sentiment with clear embossing in order to help it pop from my busy background.


Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
