I'd Sniff You First Snarky Birthday Card

Hello and welcome!  This is Shanna with Caffeinated Craftiness here today with a super fun, snarky card! I combined one of June's newly release stamps with a few other favorites I had in my collection that are in the shop!  The result turned out better than I could have possibly imagined!!

I created an A2 window card by taking a 4.25x5.5 landscape orientation panel and die-cutting a basic circle out of the center.  I then inked the remainder of the panel in all things brown, with some black and white splatter for texture. Next, I took my folded card base and inked up the middle where the circle would overlay in blue with some blue splatter.  The Barn Stamp was stamped in brown ink for a background image.

Back to the brown panel, I masked the Sniff you First sentiment so I could split it between the upper left and bottom right corners of my panel, stamping it in VersaMark ink and then embossing it with white embossing powder.

 I stamped the Cow Bridgette stamp in versa mark ink and then heat embossed it in black embossing powder prior to fussy cutting it out.  I LOVE how the cow is embossed!! There was no need to color, as it looked fabulous just like that!  

While assembling my card, I decided the cow needed to be sitting in some grass. So I inked up a scrap of cardstock with green distress oxide inks and splattered a bit to keep with the same messy look that the rest of the card had going on and die cut it with a grassy edge die from my stash.  I added it to the bottom left corner, with a small piece peeking up behind the window as well!  

Doesn't that sentiment just crack you up?? If you were able to give this card to someone, WHO would it be??  I think my mother-in-law would LOVE and giggle at this card for sure (we share a similar sense of humor!). Let me know who you would give it to in the comments!

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!

Christmas in July Cards by Martha Lucia

Hi friends, Martha Lucia here. Today I have two Mini Slimline Christmas Cards featuring the Crackerbox & Suzy Stamps.

This card is featuring the recently released Lady with Holding Hand. I really like this rubber stamp and it is a perfect size for the Mini Slimline Cards. First, I stamped it onto White Smooth Card Stock and then colored it with a combination of Illustrator Markers and TriBlend Markers. I used the TriBlend for the skin, the market that I used was the Fair Skin Blend. It is a set of 3 markers the FS6 + FS7 + FS8. The Illustrator colors were LG1, LG3, GY4, and DR2. After colored the Lady with Holding Hand, I fussy cut the image with scissors and let it aside for a while.

I continue the process of creating the layers of my card. First, I made the card base using green card stock, Then, I die cut a second layer using the large size of the Delighted Lace Rectangle Mini Slimline Die onto Red Card stock. I love how this delicate border looks over the card bases. I pasted it directly over the card. Additionally, I die-cut a third layer using designer paper. But this time, I used the second size of the Big & Little Chain Rectangle Mini Slimline Dies. With this, I enhance the dots and details of all the dies that I used.

Over the third layer, I stamped the sentiments Joy and Peace with VersaFine Pigment Onix. Then, I pasted the colored Lady over this layer with crafty foam tape and finalized the card pasting the entire decorated layer over the card with 3D foam tape.


My second card keeps the same sketch, I just turned the layout to vertical and stamped the sentiment on the lower part. This time, I used the Santa and Reindeer Dancing Stamp and the Make a Rum Cake as sentiment. Additionally, I used the large size of the Scalloped Stitched Rectangle Mini Slimline Die as a mat for the decorated layer.

I colored the Santa and Reindeer Dancing Stamp with Classique Markers and fussy cut it with scissors. The colors of Classique Markers were DR1, DR3, GB3, GB6, FS2, FS9, CR3, and Blender. Additionally, I changed the color of the card base to create a different contrast.

Honestly, this is the same layout applied to two different cards.. It is a great way to create mass cards specialty when you have to make Christmas cards.

Christmas Slider Card

 Hello, Nadine here today!
Did you know that all Christmas stamps in the Crackerbox & Suzy Stamps store are 15% OFF now until July 25th?
To help inspire you, I created this fun Christmas Slider Card.

For my card base, I used a Slider Card. I love that these card bases are already precut and scored to make it super easy to create and saves a lot of time not having to make them myself.
For the striped paper, I die cut out a frame using some rectangle dies and adhered it to the front, and then used a small circle die and cut out half a circle notch at the top to create a tab.
Stamped and colored the Santa and Reindeer Dancing Stamp with Copic Markers and adhered it to the front.

On the inside of the card, I stamped the Reindeer Names Stamp.

Then on the slider tab, I stamped the Sign Post and Merry Christmas on the sign and colored it in with Copic Markers.

Here is my slider card in action.....

I hope I inspired you to get started on your Christmas Cards and don't forget all Christmas Stamps are 15% OFF but hurry because the sale ends July 25th.

See you next time!

Cute As A Bug Caterpillar Card

 Hello! Nadine here today sharing this cute as a bug caterpillar card I made using the July Card Kit #10.

I  started with the Triple Scallop Square Swinging Z-Fold Cardbase that comes in the July Card Kit #10 and stamped the top half of the Be A Caterpillar sentiment stamp that comes in the kit on the front of the card. Then I stamped the 3 Caterpillars that also come in the kit on the scallop squares.

Then I used some masking tape and taped off the sentiment area and the 3 scalloped squares. Over the sentiment that was masked off, I stamped the Branch with Leaves Stamp. Then I removed the masking from the sentiment but not the scalloped squares with the caterpillars I used a blending brush and blended in some VersaMagic Blue Ink around the stamped images on the front of the card.
Then I colored in the images with Copic Markers.

On the inside of the card, I stamped the Branch with Leaves Stamp again and added more blending ink, and stamped the bottom half of the Be A Caterpillar sentiment stamp.

Happy Crafting!

Fishy Birthday Card

 Hello friends, Ericka here, and today I have a fishy birthday card using Card Kit #9 along with some fun fish stamps. These card kits are great because you can use them to create a bunch of different cards using a similar layout.

This is a fun card kit and I love the cut outs and all the ways you can use them. I started out stamping the Pluto Octopus in Copic friendly ink. I also stamped the Fish in the Sea sentiment as well as the Fish Stripe and Fish Polka Dots on the tabs. I used my Copics to color them all up and then got to work on the inside of the card.
I stamped the fish along with the Bubbles and the Birthday 1 sentiment on the inside and colored them up. A tip to remember is that if you stamp an image on the tap, you can try to line it up with the stamp on the inside of the card. I thought of this after I already stamped my first Polka Dots fish on the inside of my card. The second one lined up well with the tail of the fish on the bottom tab.

All in all, this was a super fun birthday card to make. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a chance to play with this great Card Kit on sale now!

Card Kit 9: Floral Fun Fold!

Hello and welcome!  This is Shanna today from Caffeinated Craftiness and I am sharing one of the two brand new card kits from Crackerbox & Suzy Stamps this month!  The card I am sharing today features Card Kit 9!!  This kit includes a beautiful floral stamp and some fun small sentiments too!

I created mine by mounting patterned paper onto my pre-cut fun fold card base and ink blending the card base to match my paper!  Easy peasy!  I added the small trop of sentiments directly to the card base.

When you open the card, a fun tri-fold design is revealed.  I added more pattern paper and then mounted my colored floral panel on the middle panel.  I almost mounted a white cardstock rectangle on the far right but ended up deciding to write directly onto the polka dot paper instead when I mail the card.

These card kits have been a blast to create with, and the precut card bases make it super easy!

Card Kit 9 is only one of TWO new kits this month....You will want to head over to the shop to see all of them. BONUS!!  You get a DISCOUNT when you buy both kits!!  Click HERE for more details!

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!

Creating Fun Cards with Crackerbox & Suzy Stamps Card Kits!

Hi Everybody, Cornelia here today. Some of the products I have used have been provided to me by various companies I design for. Affiliate links may be used in the links provided below.
 I made this card using the card base from the July card kit and some older stamps from Crackerbox & Suzy Stamps

Here are the two card kits - set 9 and set10.
I used some old patterned paper from my stash, sponged over it, and added the sentiment, mosquito, and some extra flies. I stamped the mosquito again on a piece of scrap paper, colored it, and cut it out. Glued it over the mosquito on the patterned paper panel.
I stamped the frogs onto the flaps with some masking. Colored them as well.

Here are all the stamps I used:

I must say I really enjoy using the kits. I would otherwise never bother with those kinds of special folds. But they make it really easy!

I hope you liked this. Thanks for visiting!
Happy Stamping!

Card with Movement by Martha Lucia

Hello crafty friend, Martha Lucia here to share with you a card with movement! I am featuring the Card Kit 10 of Crackerbox & Suzy Stamps. One of the two kits released this month. These Card Kits are Z Fold Cards that include card bases and stamps.

First, I cut a strip of basic black card stock to paste behind the three square panels. Then, I stamped each of the three caterpillars included on the Card Kit 10  with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. In addition, I colored each image with Illustrator Markers from Spectrum Noir and fussy cut them with scissors.

To make the front of the card, I die cut a piece of designer paper with the second size of the Scalloped Stitched Rectangle Mini Slimline Die. I pasted it directly over the card base with E-Z Runner Tape. Additionally, I partially stamped the sentiment or edited the sentiment, included it on the Card Kit 10, and die-cut it with a Scalloped Circle.

TIP: To give more dimension and make the card more attractive, I paste the small images with crafty foam tape.

Like this is a stamped card with movement, a Z Fold Card; I just stamped the second part or lower part of sentiment included on the Card Kit 10.

Remember that if you buy both kits of the month, you get 25% OFF on the second kit. You can find all the details HERE.

Thank you for stopping by and if you want to see all the details about the products that I used to create my card, you can find them HERE in my Stampartpapel Blog.
