Groot says.....I am Groot

Hello crafty friends,

I have been on a bit of a trend lately with creating backgrounds with stencils.  They are so handy to create a variety of looks and since I have this wood grain one in my stash I thought it would pair nicely with the new release Groot stamp from Crackerbox & Suzy stamps.

Pet Sympathy Card - Crackerbox & Suzy Stamps new release

Hello crafty friends,

On August 11th the new release from Crackerbox & Suzy stamps came out with a nice variety of new stamps.  One of the most requested stamps is for sympathy cards for the loss of a pet.  While not a fun type of card to create, it is good to have some options for when you need such a card.  I created a background for my card using a new stencil to the store with lots of paw prints.  Since the background is pretty colorful and busy, I kept the stamped image simple by doing it in black ink on white cardstock and die cut around it with a circle die.

Coffee Bistro scene card - Crackerbox & Suzy stamps


Hello crafty friends,

I just recently purchased some fun stencils from Crackerbox & Suzy stamps and thought it would be really fun to see if I could use them to create a scene card.  I just love how it turned out and it wasn't very time consuming at all to make.  A little stamping, masking, stenciling and a little coloring and I had this put together in about half an hours.  There is a video tutorial on how to recreate this card in this post.
