Crackerbox Suzy Stamps - Distressed Easter Bunny

Hi Everybody,

Some of the products I have used have been provided to me from various companies I design for. Affiliate links may be used in the links provided below.

Our monthly technique theme at Crackerbox Suzy Stamps is MONO COLOR and Easter is one of our discounted themes this month. For the complete list, see below.


My stamping supplies:

I colored the bunny with Copic markers and cut it out. I die cut the frame (Steckenpferdchen) three times and glued it together. I used one of the leftovers as stencil to sponge in my background.  I stamped the bunny onto the sponged rectangle and glued my cut out bunny on top. Stamped the sentiment. Attached some Nymo thread. I also added clear Nuvo drops to his nose.


This such a cute bunny - he just doesn't want to let go of his eggs....


You can get $5.00 store credit once a week. Each month we will have several categories on sale for 20% OFF and a technique for that month. All you have to do is make a card with at least one stamp from the sales category and use the technique and 
Vicky will put $5.00 on your store account and leave you a comment that it is done. We can't wait to see your creative work! 

Here are the 20% off stamp sale categories and card techniques.

Funky Fossil - Explore the World

Hi Everyone,

I am playing with the new release from Funky Fossil Designs. I used the set Adventure for this card. 


I actually got two cards out of one in this case. I stamped the image onto black card stock and heat embossed it in white. I then cut along the lines and cut out the waterfall, which remained attached to the bottom panel. You can see the other card I made with it HERE.


 I attached the black part to a piece of rainbow paper and colored in the waterfall. Added water splatters and heat embossed them with sparkly embossing powder (looks pretty in real life). Lastly I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment.


I love it when you get tow out of one!

Katzelkraft at Topflight Stamps

Hi Everyone,

It's Topflight Stamps day!

We are showcasing Katzelkraft stamps this week.  I was delighted, as you can imagine!


I am right now totally into the insect set from Katzelkraft. I made a whole card series with them. You can see the other cards I made HEREHERE and HERE. I masked of a narrow strip at the bottom and on the left. Sponged with lilac and pink distress inks. I stamped the flowers and the insect. I colored it with water brush markers. I added Stickles to the flowers and the insect wings. I thought this card can live without a sentiment.....

Funky Fossil - Home is where the Heart is

Hi Everyone,

I am playing with the new release from Funky Fossil Designs. I used the set Scandi Home for this card. 


I heat embossed the cute little house  and flowers onto bronze shimmer card stock and heat embossed it with WOW Verdigris embossing powder. Added the little heart and "HOME" and heat embossed in white for some contrast. Added white gel pen accents. Heat embossed the bottom half of the sentiment with Verdigris embossing powder onto the black card stock. I mounted the bronze panel onto some matching card stock and assembled everything.



 It shimmers nicely. You can see this better in this picture.

Topflight Stamps - Happy Birthday

Hi Everyone,

It's Topflight Stamps day!

Carabelle Studio came out with some wonderful new stamps - including this cute set that I used for my card.

I immediately fell in love with those quirky animals by Carabelle Studio! So I squeezed almost all of them onto my card. I colored them with water brush markers and water brush pens. I used watercolor paper as background.  The sentiment is from Katzelkraft. I trimmed my card base and used green card stock to frame it.
