Happy 20th Anniversary Crackerbox!!!

Hello crafty friends, Martha Lucia here. Today I have a mix of cards to share with you but all is a big celebration for the 20th Anniversary of Crackerbox and Suzy Stamps. Twenty years in this crafty industry is a lot and I am so proud to be part of this amazing company!


My first card is featuring two of the stamps created for the celebration. To see the entire NEW SPECIAL RELEASE just click HERE. It is a mini slimline card size and I just stamped the images with VersaFine Pigment Onix Ink. I used white smooth card stock to stamp the Cocktail Summer Fun Large. Additionally, I colored it with Illustrator Markers from Spectrum Noir.


To create this look, I combined card stock with designer papers. I added a few enamel dots in different sizes and I stamped the sentiment Cheers On Your Birthday with VersaFine Pigment Onix Ink onto Teal Card stock.

SECOND PROJECT / CARD KITS


My second project is featuring Card Kit #8. This month the Card Kit is a card box design and it's a birthday-themed collection of stamps.


To make it more attractive the base, I covered the base of the box with designer paper and for the flaps I created second layers. I splattered each layer with Memento Fireworks inks and inked the borders of the flap in coordinating colors.


To stamp the images I used VersaFine Pigment Onix and colored them with Illustrator Markers from Spectrum Noir. Additionally, I fussy cut all with scissors and pasted over the separator of the box with vellum and crafty foam tape.

 SPECIAL OFFER!!!

As part of the 20th Anniversary celebration, Crackerbox & Suzy Stamps just released three different types of Mystery Boxes: Mystery Box 1, Mystery Box 2, and Mystery Box 3.


All the mystery boxes will include several of our rubber stamps. Additional items included may be any of the following items... adhesives, stencils, embellishments and other card making items.

20th Anniversary with 20% OFF and New Release!

Hello, Stampers Vicky here today
I have made a side flap card with our NEW RELEASE!
I really love this funny Alien, I think I will be using him a lot.
Birthdays can be so much fun!

I mounted the white card stock on 2 layers of light and medium green card stock.
I did the same colors on the panel on the right.
The panel on the right opens and the saying is under it. 

What I like about the side flap is that it still shows the Alien with the inside saying.
I am also going to use this saying with some of our lady stamps.
Check out our NEW RELEASE!

 

We are celebrating with FREE SHIPPING!

Thank you for your continued support!

I Didn't Forget Card

Hello stamping and cardmaking friends! Tracy here and today I have a fun little Out of This World birthday card to share. Here are all of the details. 



Other Products Used:
Cardstock- White
Staz On Ink- Jet Black
Zig Clean Color Markers
Waterbrush
Gelly Roll Pen- White
Distress Oxide Ink- Black Soot, Wilted Violet, Peacock Feathers
Blending Tool and Mat
Water Mister
Heat Gun
Embossing Pad
White Embossing Powder
Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L- Thin 3D Foam Squares, 3D Foam Squares, Crafty Foam Tape, E-Z Runner Grand

First I created a night sky blended background using Distress Oxide Inks. First you start with the colours you want to peek through in the sky, blending onto white cardstock. Then you cover the whole card front using the black soot ink. Mist the piece with water, and let the ink react. Then heat set the whole thing.

Next Stamp the sentiment onto the card front using an embossing pad and white embossing powder. Now using a white pen, add the stars to the background. Mat the card front in white cardstock then add to the white cardstock card base using foam tape.


Next, stamp the images onto white cardstock. Add color to the images using Zig Clean Color Markers and a waterbrush. I also stamped the emoji image into the middle of the aliens t-shirt just for fun haha. Fussy cut the images and add to the card front using foam squares of different thicknesses to add dimension.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

More out of this world Box Card Fun!

Hello and Welcome! This is Shanna from Caffeinated Craftiness with another fun project featuring Crackerbox & Suzy Stamps!!

Today I am showing you another fun and interactive box card kit from Crackerbox & Suzy Stamps in collaboration with The Paper Cut! These two new kits feature box cards that come pre-cut and scored. NO math, NO die-cutting, NO fuss!! In each kit, you get 5 blank card bases and 3 stamps that help complete your card!

My card today features Card Kit 8 and was so much fun to create!

I stamped and Copic colored the images and then fussy cut them out.  I decided the UFO needed a little beam coming from under it, so I proceeded to laminate some starry sequins into a laminator pouch and cut it with my paper trimmer afterward!  I love how it adds a little extra, and actually attaches the UFO to the card!  The little alien is coming in peace, and was a ton of fun to color!


The sentiment that comes with this kit just makes me giggle.. Because we ALL have "those moments" lol. I heat embossed the sentiment in white embossing powder onto some patterned galaxy paper from my stash. Fun right


One of the coolest features of a box card is the fact they fold completely flat to still fit in an envelope too for mailing. There is an option to purchase only card blanks if you'd prefer to use different stamps.  You can find them HERE.

By the way... ALL the card kits, including both NEW ones for June, are on SALE!!!!
You save 20% on one, or 25% when you buy both kits!!  YAY for saving moo-lah!


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!

Abducted by Aliens Belated Birthday Card

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.

 You may be familiar with the new card kits that Crackerbox & Suzy Stamps carries in the store. The card kit for June is an A2 pop-up box card. But I just used the stamps to make a regular card here.


 Here is the  Card Kit 8 I used:

    

 I started with patterned paper and sponged all those white stars with different kinds of distress oxide inks. I cut out the stamps and colored them with Inktense and water brush markers. I heat embossed the sentiment and cut it apart. Added little strips of patterned paper at the bottoms of the sentiment strips. Assembled the card, using foam tape for the alien and UFO.


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

Happy Graduation Card with Crackerbox and Suzy Stamps

 Hi Stampers, 

Vicky here today to share a Graduation card with some of our new stamps.
Our high school colors are gold and green so this was pretty simple.
I used the Open Stars for the background and colored them in.
I used our new Shoot For The Moon stamp with VersaFine.
I used a smaller piece of card stock to draw the frame around with a green fine tip marker.
The Graduation Cap was stamped, colored, and cut out.
I had some gold string and made the tassel.

The inside of the card had another one of our new stamps, The Sky's The Limit.
I also used Happy Graduation.


Hope you have a great weekend!

Out of this world Card

Hello there, Martha Lucia here! Today I have a fun card featuring the monthly card kit #7 from Crackerbox & Suzy StampsThe card kit for June is an A2 pop-up box card.


I cut some designer paper for the background and for the flaps of the box. Then, I stamped the astronaut, rocket, and moon onto white smooth card stock and colored them with Illustrator Markers from Spectrum Noir. 
Additionally, I fussy cut them with scissors and left them aside for a while. I also added those cuts to the inside partitions with strips of vellum card stock.


I stamped the sentiment onto the front flap with VersaFine Pigment Onix. 
Tip: it would have been better to do that before you adhere to the paper.


As a final touch, I just added some tiny superhero stars made with clay that I pasted over the flaps of the card with Glue Pend Dual Tip.


This is the kit that I used to make my card. But if you noticed I used one additional stamp. It is because this month we have some additional stamps that work wonderfully with the monthly kits. You can find them in Crackerbox & Suzy Stamps Store.


You can find all the products that I used on this card listed HERE 

Thank you for stopping by!

Belated Birthday Popup Box Card With Alien Stamps

Hello Stamper! Vicky here today with a fun Alien Pop Up Card Kit that can be used for any age! There are 20% and 25% off on the card kits!!

Here is one of our Card Kits for June. You get 3 stamps, alien, spaceship and saying, and 5 Pop Up Cards that fold flat for mailing. The Moon Full stamp is one that is not in the kit.



I started by stamping the images on Ex-Press card stock, coloring with Copic markers, and cutting them out.
This box is actually pretty easy to make. One thing you will need is clear plastic strips to attach the images to. This is the most fun part~I bought some donuts and cut strips from the plastic container. I also had some donuts while working on this project, BONUS! But any plastic container will work.


There are instructions in the kit, but
here are a couple of simple steps I did to put this box together.

Cut 1 strip of 2x5.5 for the back of the box (long blue strip) and
6 panels 2x (a little under)2 3/4 ~3 blue, 3 yellow

The other side of the box.

You will get 4 strips with fold creases on the end. Adhere the strip near the fold line and down a little.

Adhere to all 3 strips.

Adhere the other end of the strips and lay them flat.

Fold the card in half and lay the last flap over the strips.

When you unfold the box, the strips will be inside the box.

Adhere the little flap to close the box.

Cut your plastic strips about 1/8 thin and adhere to image and to the strips inside the box!
Here you can see the blue panels on the outside of the box.

It really is easy!
I did the back panel in blue for the instructions to see it better but I changed the blue to yellow for the box. I think this box will be fun. I love the 3D effect.

If you want to get real creative, decorate the outside of the box!!

Take care, until next time!
Vicky
