Blog Hop with Imagine Crafts and Crackerbox & So Suzy Stamps

Hi Everyone,

it is a special day today. Crackerbox & So Suzy Stamps have teamed up with Imagine Crafts to bring this blog hop to you. You probably already are familiar with Imagine Crafts. They carry all sorts of fabulous inks, such as Versafine, Delicata, Memento inks, to mention a few as well as other products such as Fireworks sprays.

Perhaps you arrived here from the talented Jennifer from Scraps of Life

I settled on the Fireworks sprays for this collaboration.

I used Lilac Posies and Bahama blue and a Tim Holtz Stencil.

I used the sprays to make some backgrounds, spraying through the stencil. You can take a new sheet of card stock and press it onto the sprayed stencil and you will get an additional background.


Here are some of the backgrounds I created.


I settled on the pink one for this card:


 I added the Birthday sentiment and used a white pen alongside to make it better readable. Added turquoise paper strips and punched some butterflies from some of my sprayed paper.


For the second card I used an iStencil on photo paper. The background paper is black card stock sprayed with Bahama blue Fireworks spray. It shows up so well on black card stock. Really amazing!


I added the Happy Birthday sentiment, a brad and some colored thread. It really shimmers beautifully! Too bad it does not show well in the photo.


Crackerbox & So Suzy Stamps is offering a $25 Gift Certificate for ONE lucky winner. You need to leave a comment on each blog and corporate blog any of the days. If you participate both days, the opportunity of winning will be double.

 Here is the complete line up:


Happy Hopping!

Both very stunning cards. That is amazing how the Fireworks! spray shows up beautifully on black paper. It looks like a Payne's Gray or Prussian Blue.

Fantastic cards! I LOVE your second card!!!

Heidi Weaver said...

Hi Cornelia, what lovely cards! I'm amazed at how beautifully that blue Fireworks spray shows up against the black. It adds so much depth. Love the diagonal Happy Birthday banner and coloured thread. Thanks so much for joining our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week.

Your cards are wonderful! Not sure if you were trying yo make the second card look like it has a golf ball on the front..... But it does! It looks so dimensional...... 3-D.

Anita in France said...

The shimmer on both your cards is fantastic, Cornelia ... I'm especially taken with the blue around the 'planet' (or is it a living module in space?) ... so brilliant! Hugs, Anita :)

Both cards are wonderful! I love the almost 3D effect that both cards have, but the ball in the second one really stands out. I'll have to try your colors and technique's!
