Happy Purple-ween!


Hey friends!

Happy Friday!

As a mom to 4 kids,

I'm happy to say that none of them share the same favorite color!

It makes picking out 4 of sun'in so much easier!

My oldest daughter's is purple!

So it was naturally A LOT of fun

 to make and send her a Halloween card!

        You can see a short video of this card on my YouTube channel!

To create this card, I used 3 purple prismacolor markers,

3 colors of distress oxide inks 

(wilted violet, shaded violet and villainous potion)

and 3 Lawn Fawn sets: Spooky Village, Crazy ANTics and Trick or Treat!

  I'll enter this card to this week's current

 Lawn Fawn Challenge #159:  monochromatic

I hope you have a great weekend!

Call me Crazy!


        Hey friends!

I have a new card up on the Crackerbox Stamps blog today ....

Call Me Crazy .. but I cut up paper! :)

                          For this fun card, I used this stamp:

                                  Call Me Crazy

  This was a fun card to create, taking designer papers 

and adding them like puzzle pieces 

with the sentiment as a focal point.

Don't forget to check out the 50% off sale

 happening in the store

 and stock up on your favorites!

JINGLE all the way!

 Hi friends!

There are only 64 more days until Christmas!

Let's Jingle All The Way!

Today's card features these adorable caroling critters

getting ready for the holidays!

And I'm sure they don't sound baaaaaaaaaad :)

This adorable stamp and die set is Fa La La from Waffle Flower Crafts.

I colored it with my prismacolor markers and 

it's one layer wonder - gasp!

I'm a chunky girl!

I love layers upon layers and dimension so this was HARD!

Thanks for stopping by!



Summon a DEMON?

 Hi friends!

I'm back on the Crackerbox Stamps blog

today showcasing 4 stamps on one card!

Dust off your recipes cards my friends ~

you're going to need a new one! :)

For my card today, you can find all the stamps

at the Crackerbox Stamps store or just click

my affiliate links below at no extra cost :)

To make this fun card, 

I started with Lady with News and Summon a Demon stamps.

I first stamped the sentiment to make room for the recipe card

space box and then stamped the lady.

This is colored with Copic sketch markers.

Next, I masked off the outer areas leaving only the box free

and stamped Spooky Spider and then the left cobweb 

after masking off the spider!

This card just cracks me up

and would be fun to pop in the mail to make a friend laugh!

That's it for today!

Thanks for stopping by :)



You're fab-BOO-lous!


Hey friends!

Today's share is a wee bit different than my normal card posts 

but it's pretty spook-tacular!

        This is my project share for the YouTube open collaboration


It's a weekly creation of any ATC (Artist Trading Card) and/or 

a MemDex (Memory Dex card), theme of your choosing.

These are great for swaps, adding to friend mail, etc.

You can see the short video on my YouTube channel 

and I'd love it if you could subscribe to my channel!

This is the ATC card, a small 3 x 2.5 cardstock

with paper from Echo Park Studios and cute stamped images

from Sunny Studio Stamps!

I kept the theme going with the matching MemDex 

and used a die that was a gift from a friend a couple of years ago.

MemDex cards are perfect for adding to Rolodex style holders

and 'back in my day' that's how information was stored!

Then we went straight to the WALL and made our phone calls

while still stuck to the wall ~ LOL!  Kids these days have it very lucky!

I still have trauma from that curly cord and everyone hearing 

your whole phone call - hahahaha!

Finally, one last look at both together! 

I'm thinking how cute this would be with a cellophane

bag of candy tied to it for BOO mail!

Thanks for stopping by!



Thank you BERRY much!

Hi friends!

Quick post today since we just got in from

 a birthday bonanza and vacation!

I'm still playing catch up on posting to my blog

and wanted to share some of the cards I posted to Instagram.

Like this one!

I was very lucky to win a generous GC on Instagram

 from Pretty Pink Posh

and this is one of the stamp and die sets I chose.

So sweet!

I LOVE strawberries!

Especially ones from the farmer's market that are freshly picked - YUM!

I hope you are having a beautiful day!

Thanks for stopping by!




Trick or Treat card!


Hi friends!

I'm back on the Crackerbox Stamps blog today

with a super fun Trick or Treat card!

For today's card, I stamped Ghost Flying onto the top sky corners

and the Halloween Kids on bottom panel.

The faux watercolor background was created by smooshing

ink and water onto the cardstock.

I let the colors dry and then stamped directly onto the paper.

Here's another look

AND a reminder that there is a 50% off sale!

Check it out here!

If you'd like to do some holiday and Christmas shopping,

there's a sale going on right now for past hoilday stamps.

Happy NOEL!

Hi friends!

Although Halloween is right around the corner,

 today we're celebrating Christmas!

  It's the 9th day of the month and that's The Three Musketeers

 posting day where we showcase a card.

It's based on ONE image, THREE friends  

 and we take turns sending each other a surprise image 

and we all create a card! 

 For October, Barb sent us this sweet House Mouse image

called NOEL.

It's quite large for a stamped image so I focused on the coloring.

If you are new to House Mouse, definitely check out them out.

The mice are so cute and whimsical and always getting into antics!

You can see Barb's card here 

and Jeanette's card here on their respective blogs.

Take care and thanks for stopping by!
