King of the Throne Father's Day Card

Hello, card loving friends! Tracy here, and today I have a fun little Father's Day themed card to share. Here are all of the details.

Crackerbox Stamps Used:

Create a simple layered card base using patterned paper and coordinating cardstock. Stamp the Toilet image twice onto white cardstock using black ink. Stamp the sentiment on the toilet seat of one. Fussy cut that sentiment image just around the seat and base of the toilet. Fussy cut out the other toilet. Add the fussy cut piece to the base using foam squares.
Add the toilet to the card front. The "Happy" and "Day" are from the patterned paper collection I chose. I used alpha stickers to create the "Birthday" part of the sentiment. Add the sentiment to the bottom of the card using foam squares.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Happiness Is...COCKTAILS! Card

Hello and welcome! This is Shanna here today, and I am excited to be kicking off a super fun card series featuring some of the stamps from the Happiness Is Collection from Crackerbox Stamps! This collection has a TON of different sentiment choices, and I am really looking forward to sharing some of them with all of you over the coming months!
This series will be a monthly series that publishes each month on the 3rd of the month. I will be using a different sentiment each month paired with the title's sentiment from the collection, Happiness Is. If you'd like to view the entire collection together, you can also view that HERE or in the link below. I also have exciting news--so be sure to read all the way until the end to find out!

I started off my card by stamping the Cocktail Summer Fun stamp and then masking it with masking paper. I wanted a single-layer image with Sassy Cindy "holding" the cocktail glass. I lined up Sassy Cindy and then stamped the image over the masked cocktail glass. After the mask was removed, I had the full image ready to color with my Copic markers. I fussy cut the image out afterward and set it aside. For the background of my card, I pulled out a "summery" gel press print I had in my stash... FUN FACT! The texture pattern you see on the background is actually made with BUBBLE WRAP! So fun! I stamped my Happiness Is sentiments directly onto the panel with black ink. Lastly, I adhered to my fussy cut girl using some foam tape for dimension!

I had a lot of fun making this card---and am really excited to move forward in this series. Take a peek at the Happiness Is collection for yourself and see if you are inspired as well!

Funny Vintage Inspired Card

This sentiment is so fun and a good reminder to make sure you are having fun in life. I paired the sentiment with the Drinking Couple, which seems to be fitting lol.

Super Dad And Grandpa For Father's Day Card

  Hello crafter friends. Here is a Father's Day card that includes him for being a Grandpa.

I stamped Super Guy and colored him. The saying Dad Grandpa was stamped on yellow cardstock.

I used white cardstock to cut out the frame. I wanted it to match the red on the cape, so I colored it. I put the frame on the saying and traced around it, and cut it out.

Birthday Mini Slimline Butterfly Shaker Card

 Hello! Thank you so much for dropping by!  This is Shanna with Caffeinated Craftiness and I have a fun birthday shaker card featuring stamps from Crackerbox Stamps.

I had a lot of fun making this quick and easy shaker card!  I used the following stamps from Crackerbox stamps in today's project:

Butterflies Solid - set of 2

--or available separately--

Butterflies Solid: small or large

It's Your Birthday

I started out my card today with a mini slimline sized panel that I had leftover from a gel press session I had done previously.  I love creating multiple gel prints when I create with a gel press and this is exactly why---quick and ready to go panels!!  I used the Butterfly Solid stamps and stamped them all over the background using a gray ink.  

Next I grabbed a scalloped frame die from my stash and diet a frame out of black cardstock and set it aside.  For my window I used heat resistant acetate.  That means I was able to stamp and heat emboss on the acetate without warping/melting it--total game changer!  I stamped the It's Your Birthday sentiment in embossing ink onto a piece of the acetate cut to the same size as my frame and then heat embossed with black embossing powder.  Once cooled, I adhered the acetate piece to the black scalloped frame.

For the shaker bits I added a variety of flat sequins from my stash and then attached the frame window to the card base, over the sequins, using a double thick foam tape.  The entire shaker panel was mounted to a white card base to finish off the card.

I love creating shaker cards, I feel like they are a unique and fun card both to give and to receive!  Do you like making shakers?  

Thank you so much for stopping by today, I hope you enjoyed my project.  Be sure to check out my personal blog Caffeinated Craftiness, or follow me over on my Instagram for all of my caffeinated adventures!

See you all again soon,

Recovery Flower Card by Martha Lucia

Hello there, Martha Lucia here to share a floral recovery stamped card. Today I am featuring the new Violeta and Eucalyptus flower, designed by Alex.

Let me share the process of creating my card. First, I created the card base using gray cardstock. Then, I created two layers with the same size. One in colored cardstock and the other in white smooth cardstock. I used the white smooth to stamp the Violeta and Eucalyptus flower. I stamped it with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored it with alcohol markers from Spectrum Noir. In addition, I cut the layer diagonal to create my design.
After cutting the white layer, I pasted it over the green layer with 3D Foam Squares to add more dimension to my card. Additionally, I stamped the sentiment Hope You're Back on the lower part of the green layer and decorated the diagonal line with a scalloped border.
Then, I finalized the card, pasting the decorated layer over the card base with crafty foam tape. And voila, my card is finished with a very special design.

Snarky Clean and Simple Card

Hello friends! Ericka here, and today I have a simple and snarky card using the new Grant Me Serenity sentiment.

I love this sentiment, and it may or may not be how I feel as we end the school year, lol. I stamped the Big Tree 2 in Versafine Clair Rainforest and colored it up with my Distress Pencil set. I then stamped the great sentiment in Versfine Clair Nocturne ink and clear heat embossed it. I added a little ink shading to the edge of the card before I added it to my card base. A fun and quick card any teacher could relate to. Have a wonderful weekend!

Happy Birthday Guardians of the Galaxy Card

 Hello crafty friends! Tracy here, and today I wanted to share a card featuring one of my favorite characters...Rocket, from Guardians of the Galaxy. With Volume 3 of the franchise out now, I thought it would be fun to create. Here are all of the details.

Cut a piece of white cardstock for your card front. Then do a simple blend with Wilted Violet first, then with Blueprint Sketch just around the edges. Next, using Elegant Eggplant ink, add stars around the border of the card front. 
Add the sentiment onto the bottom of the card front using black ink. Adhere the card front onto the white cardstock card base. Stamp Rocket onto white cardstock and add color to the image using Nuvo Markers. Fussy cut out the image and then added it to the card front using foam squares. The final touch is to add Stickles to the stars around the border of the card front.
