Best Friends Ink Blending Card

Hello crafty friends! Ericka here, and today I have an ink blending card I made with the Fairy Tea Cup stamp and this great sentiment Laugh, Smile, Live.


I love this sentiment and wanted to use it for a friend. I was going through my Crackerbox Stamp images, and these little fairies seem to have a perfect friendship. I started by doing some Distress Oxide ink blending with a stencil in my stash. For a nice blend, I used Carved Pumpkin, Abandoned Coral, and Worn Lipstick on Bristol Smooth paper. I added some water droplets, then blotted them with a paper towel to lift off some of the ink.


I stamped the Fairy Tea Cup in Twilight Versafine Clair ink and used my white gel pen to add highlights. I then centered my Laugh, Smile, Live sentiment and stamped it in Nocturne Versafine Clair ink and clear heat embossed both the sentiment and image.

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

Fueled by Caffeine Gift Card Holder

Hello and welcome!! This is Shanna today with a fun caffeinated gift card holder perfect for any guy or gal needing a little pick-me-up!

I am a sucker for all things coffee or tea related—especially stamps!! The newest Crackerbox Stamps release has sooooo many cute stamps in it! I combine three of them on this card and even turned the pocket into a real pocket that is just right to fit a gift card too!


On this project, I used the following Crackerbox Stamps:

I used a Kraft cardstock base, and Copic colored the Pocket to look like denim and the Jar Drink image to look like iced tea. TIP: use your colorless blender to draw in the ice cube shapes after coloring!! The effect is almost magical!!
That finishes up my card for today—I hope you enjoyed it!! I will be back again soon with another red rubber inspired project!

Until then, Shanna

Minion Wobble Birthday Card

Hello crafty friends! Ericka here, and today I have a fun minion birthday card I created for one of my students. I love these minions and all the great sentiments that go along with them.

I started by using Distress Spray Stains in Mermaid Lagoon and Squeezed Lemonade on Bristol Smooth paper. While my background was drying, I stamped the Stuart with Cupcake, and clear heat embossed him. I used watercolor markers to color him and then fussy cut him out.

I stamped the Once in a Minion sentiment along with the Birthday #7, and clear heat embossed them so they would stand out from my background.

I finished my card by attaching my minion to my card using an Action Wobble. I love these fun wobbles; they add a little extra fun to every card. Thank you for stopping by, and I hope you have a wonderful week!

You're Tea-rrific Card

Hello, cardmaking friends! Tracy here, and today I have a fun little tea-themed card to share featuring some new and not-so-new stamps. I am a tea and iced tea drinker, so I was in love when I got my hand on these fabulous stamps. Here are all of the details. 



Crackerbox Stamps Used:


I cut a piece of white cardstock that was 3.25x4.5 and blended it with Distress Oxide Inks. I added the sentiment to the very bottom using black ink. I cut a second piece of white cardstock to 4x5.25 and stamped the lemon wedge image around the outside of the cardstock. I added color to the images using Zig Clean Color Markers and a water brush. Adhere these layers together to a white cardstock base.

Stamp the Jar Drink image onto white cardstock and add color to it using Zig Clean Color Markers and a water brush. Once dry, fussy out the image and add to the middle of the card using foam squares. Add Stickles to the jar for a little extra sparkle, and let dry. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Belated Birthday Card

Hello Crafter, Vicky here today! As fast as days go by, have you remembered a birthday a day or two late like I have? Even though I forgot on that day, I still wanted to wish my friend a happy birthday.
I did orange because it is bright and cheerful. I stenciled the background.
I used a couple of new stamps for this card. The saying, Sorry Missed Your Birthday was stamped with VersaFine. The Balloons And Streamers were stamped with Memento Ink and colored with Copics.

I used the Created For You By one of our new stamps, and I put it on the back of the card and will sign my name under it.

Thanks for stopping by!

What Time Is A Good Time To Start Drinking Wine?

Hello! Nadine here today with a wine card with a snarky twist.


I first created a watercolor background with some ink and water to make a color swatch in the middle of my card front. Then using the new What Time Is A Good Time sentiment stamp I stamped it in the middle of the watercolor swatch. Then I stamped the Grapes, Wine Bottle, & Glass and colored them in with ink mixed with water and a paintbrush to give them a watercolored look. On the label on the wine bottle, I stamped the Wine Word. Then I fussy cut them out and adhered them to the card front with 3D foam squares. I also added a few sequins.

Easy Layered Frame Card with NEW Coffee Stamps!

 Hello, everyone! This is Shanna from Caffeinated Craftiness with another red-rubber-inspired project featuring stamps from Crackerbox Stamps!

Crackerbox Stamps just had another amazing release--this one is chalk full of caffeinated stamps!  Right up my alley, right??  One of my favorites was this sentiment--Coffee Murder. Truer words were never spoken, am I right?!? LOL

For this card, I used the following stamps:
Cup Lg
Coffee Murder

To create this card, I started by stamping the Cup Lg. Image in Copic friendly ink to the lower right corner of an A2 white card panel.  I colored it using some of my favorite reds: R89, R29, R27, and R24.  Then I positioned my sentiment underneath and stamped it in black ink. Next, I thumbed through my collection of 6x6 paper pads and found this gem hidden in them.  I grabbed a nested heart die set from my stash, selected one big enough to "frame" around my images, and then die-cut it from the patterned paper.  I purposefully angled it so it kind of "fell" off the page as well.  I trimmed the patterned paper down to A2 size to match the white panel and glued them together.  I wasn't a huge fan of how much white space was still there, so I grabbed some red flat sequins from my stash and scattered them around.    Toss in a folded card base, and I was done!

You can find the entire new release in the Crackerbox Stamps store HERE.

That wraps up my card for today--thank you so much for stopping by!
See you all again soon, Shanna

Paint Brush and Palette Card by Martha Lucia

Hello crafty friends, Martha Lucia here to share a Paint Brush and Palette Card created with stamps from our recent release.


The base of my card is old olive cardstock and the second layer is a piece of white smooth cardstock that I inked using Kaleidacolor Ink in Bouquet colors. First, I inked the borders using a swiping technique. Then I stamped the sentiment May your life be on the left side using VersaFine Onix Ink. 
I stamped the Paint Brush and Palette with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink on a separate piece of white smooth cardstock. I fussy cut the two pieces with scissors and colored the color sample following the rainbow colors. These are very close to the colors of the inks that I used to create the borders.
To finalize the card, I just pasted the Paint Brush and Palette over the decorated layer using Crafty Foam Tape. Then I paste the entire piece over the base using 3D Foam Squares. 

Thanks for stopping by, and remember, the New Release is full of images you can use to create cards for any occasion!
