Abducted by Aliens

      Hi Everybody,


Cornelia here today. Some of the products I have used have been provided to me from 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.




 Here is the second new June Card Kit 7 :


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 Stamps. The 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 let a side 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 the paper.


As final touch, I just added some tiny super hero 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 be have some additional stamps that work wonderful 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!

Outer Space Pop Up Birthday Card

 Hello friends, Ericka here sharing a fun Birthday card using the Card Kit 7 and some pattern paper.
 I love interactive card kits and the fun ways to use them. The Crackerbox & Suzy Stamps Card Kits take the guesswork out of figuring out the mechanics of an interactive card and now you can get your favorite June card kits at 20% off and if you get both kits you will get 25% off the second one.

 
The box kit comes in the Crackerbox & Suzy Stamps June Card Kitsyou will get 5 popup box cards to create along with 3 stamps: 1 sentiment and 2 images.

To create my card, I found some pattern paper I had in my stash and measured out cut-out pieces measuring 2 x 2 1/2 to use on my panels. Before assembling the card, I glued all my fun paper on the panels, which included the outside and top inside for the card.



 
I stamped the astronaut and space ship, included in the kit, and used Copic markers to color them up. I also added the Moon Full stamp and stamped it on some leftover background paper.
 
 
I then added pattern paper to the box inserts and glued them in place. I stamped the included sentiment and attached it to the outside of the box. I also used the Sky's The Limit sentiment on the inside of the box.


These are great cards and my kids are already asking me to make more! Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a chance to play with these great cards!

New June Card Kits - Pop-up Birthday Box 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. If you always wanted to make one of those boxes but shied away from the work involved, you might want to try this. But I warn you - it's still a fair amount of time that goes into that. So - something for a very special occasion or very special person...... at least for me. 


For my card I used this Card Kit.:


I cut some designer paper from Funky Fossil Designs for the background. I stamped the astronaut, rocket, and moon and colored them with water brush pens. Cut them out. Also used some die-cut stars. Added those cuts to the inside partitions with strips of clear sturdy plastic (recycled packaging material). Stamped the sentiment onto the front flap and heat embossed it - it would have been better to do that before you adhere the paper....
 

Here are a few different angles on my pop-up card:

Out Of This World Birthday Box Card

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

Today is the debut of TWO more card kits 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!

Here is a peek at Card kit 7 and Card kit 8.


My card today features Card Kit 7 and was so much fun to create!

I stamped and Copic colored the images and then fussy cut them out.  I used my watercolors on black watercolor paper to make my "galaxy" background---LOVE how this turned out!  For some shine, I grabbed some foiled paper as well to help cover the front panels.  I stamped and heat-embossed the sentiment on the background paned as well.  My images are attached with scrap pieces of acetate so it looks like they are floating in space!

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.

Have you ever made a box card before??  I would love to hear about it.  The kits would make a breeze out of learning if you have never tried.

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!

Stamping & Coloring On Kraft Cardstock

Hello everybody! Maria Pilar here with a new card colored on Kraft cardstock.


This is the first time I have colored on kraft because I thought it would change the tones of the markers a lot, but the result has surprised me and I love how it turned out.

To create this card I have used the Flowers Flourish stamp and the sentiment Day Be Filled with Sunshine stamped on kraft paper, as I have said. Then I used my alcohol markers to color the flower stamp. After that, I pasted it on the white cardstock base.


The final touches have been the add some clear sequins and a piece of sisal tied with a bow.
Thanks for stopping by. Enjoy and happy crafting!

Minions for Fathers Day Card

Hi Everybody, Cornelia here today. Are you familiar with the new card kits that Crackerbox & Suzy Stamps carries in their store yet? They are fabulous! For this card, I only used the slider die-cut card from the new May Card Kits.

I decided to make a Fathers Day card with my favorite Minions. I used Minion Phil and Minion Stuart. For the inside sentiment, I went with a simple Thank You.

I sponged the slider card with yellow and blue distress oxide inks. I stamped the minions on a piece of scrap paper and colored them with water brush pens and markers. Fuzzy cut them. Marked the inside of the card to stamp the sentiment. Added some Washi tape and assembled everything.


 Here are the new May card kits:

Card Kit 5                                                                                  Card Kit 6

Each kit comes with 10 pre-cut and pre-scored white card bases with envelopes and two stamps, as you can see in the picture below. This makes for really easy cardmaking.

I hope this works..... and if it does you can watch how the card slides open:

Happy Birthday Slider Card

 Hello friends, Ericka here sharing my Happy Birthday card using the Card Kit 5 and Distress Oxides.

 I love interactive card kits and the fun ways to use them. The Crackerbox & Suzy Stamps Card Kits take the guesswork out of figuring out the mechanics of an interactive card.

The slider cards come in the Crackerbox & Suzy Stamps May Card Kits, you will get 10 to create with along with 2 stamps: 1 sentiment, and 1 image.

To create my card, I used Distress Oxides in Blueprint Sketch, Lucky Clover, and Cracked Pistachio. 

 
I stamped the elephant included in the kit and used Zig markers to color him up. I took some patterned paper and a triangle die in my stash and added it to the slider card with double-sided tape.

I stamped the included sentiment on the inside slider and the Happy Birthday sentiment on the inside and white heat embossed them both.
