Crackerbox & Suzy Stamps - Hero

Tuesday, June 2, 2020

Hello everyone,

Happy June, can you believe it's not Summer yet and we are already having 80 degree weather?  We still have about three more weeks before Summer to really kicks in.  Time sure is flying when your having fun (lol).  I am here with Crackerbox & Suzy Stamps sharing a card with the newly released American Flag Waving rubber stamp and the sentiment Hero.  I thought this was the perfect stamp to show this week since Flag Weeks starts June 14th and July 4th is next month.

My card is an A2 top folding card.  I had the paper I used on my card in my stash, I cut the paper 4 1/4 x 5 /2 and cut it diagonally and added it to the base of my card.  I stamped the American Flag Waving, colored it with copics and then stamped the sentiment Hero.  I die cut the image and sentiment with a stitched die in my stash and then added foam tape to the back and added it to my card.  I added some clear stars that where also in my stash.



The June specials are listed here:



Thank you so much for stopping by, I hope I have inspired you in some way. Be safe and healthy, please come back again soon!

1.  The card I created with a slimline die from Trinity Stamps, I die cut the front panel and used a stencil to create the grass and clouds,

2.  I then stamped the images from the Joy Clair Feeling Slothy stamp set.

3.  The second sloth on my project I used the technique mirror stamping. I used the Waffle Flower Water Media Mat, I put the mat in my Misti, stamped the image onto the mat with versafine onyx ink, put my paper on top, rubbed it really well to get a clear image (love this technique),

4.  I heat embossed all the images with clear embossing powder because I colored them with copics (versafine ink is not alcohol friendly). I cut the images with a scan and cut, and adhered them to the card.  The bottom sloth I added foam dots to pop him up.

I hope you enjoyed my card as much as I enjoyed making it.

Crackerbox & Suzy Stamps - Happy Birthday

Thursday, May 21, 2020

Hello everyone!

I am here with Crackerbox & Suzy Stamps and I have a masculine birthday card for you today. I am using the new 2020 and Birthday 6 rubber stamps and the truck which is called Truck Old Pick Up. This card could be created into a Father's Day card too, just change the sentiment. I thought it would be fun to use the 2020 stamp set in the background since most states are still in quarantine and cannot go out and celebrate.

Here is how I created the card:

1. My card is an A2 landscape card,
2. I stamped the 2020 in the background in black ink,
3. I then cut a black piece of cardstock at 2 1/2 x 3 3/4 and then the top cardstock at 2 1/4 x 3 1/2, I stamped the Truck Old Pick Up and then stamped the Birthday 6. I adhered the two pieces together and added some foam tape and adhered it to the base of the card.

CASE The Fellow Creator Blog Hop

Sunday, May 17, 2020

Hello everyone!

I am joining the Handmade Happiness Facebook group in a CASE hop.  There were a list of Youtuber's and bloggers I had to choose from and I chose LeeAnn McKinney to CASE her card, below:


Here is my take on LeeAnn's card:


1.  My card is an A2 card, I die cut the top layer with a stitched rectangle die, I then inked the edges before removing the stitched die and ink blended the edges with pickled raspberry distress ink.

2.  I embossed the hearts with the MFT Lots of Hearts stencil. I used a double stitched heart die, and cut the center with it. I added some stripe paper from MFT Sweet Stack behind the heart and added the layer onto my card. 

3.  I stamped the image from the Pure Innocence stamp set called, So Much Love with black ink and colored the image with Copics and the rest I paper pieced using paper from the Sweet Stack.

4.  I stamped the sentiment from the Pure Innocence stamp set on black card stock with versamark and added white detailed embossing powder and heat embossed. I added this to the bottom of the card.

I hope you have enjoyed my CASE!  I sure did enjoy creating my card.

2. I stamped the images cut them out with my scan and cut and colored them with copics, I stamped the words 
Mr. Fix It onto the saw
3. I sat the images aside,  and created the easel card.  To make the easel card, I took a piece of card stock 4 1/4 x 11, scored at 5 1/2 and 8 1/4, I then took another piece of card stock 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 and adhered it to the base of the scored card.

5.  I then cut a slit in the tool box to add the tools into the box and added the other tools.
6.  I stamped and cut the sentiment and added a layer to the sentiment and adhered it to the card so that it could be a stopper to hold the card upright.  
7.  I finished the card off by adding some of the screws around the sentiment.


Here is an angle of the easel card.


Here is an angel showing the sentiment.
