CHA Trade Card



Guess where I am? At CHA in California!! It has been a life long dream of mine to go to CHA and see all the new and exciting craft and stamping products in all the booths in person, and thanks to Vicky of Crackerbox Palace, I am here!! I will give a full report when I am back, but I wanted to pop in here and share the Make and Take Exchange card I made to trade with other stampers from all around the U.S. and world! This is one of the my favorite cards that I made with Crackerbox Palace stamps and Bisters in 2014, and it is even going to be part of an article about Bister powders in Scrap and Stamp Arts  magazine to be published in June of 2015. I heat embossed the beautiful Sea Breeze scene (from Crackerbox Palace) on water color paper with black detail embossing powder. Then I created the sunset scene by sprinkling on red, yellow and blue Bister powders and spritzing with water. Bister powders are available at I Brake for Stamps  and Della from IBFS even donated some samples of Bisters so that those receiving this card at CHA can try Bisters for themselves.

The stamps from Crackerbox Palace used on this card are going to be 20% off at Crackerbox Palace.com all month! That's a great deal so grab it while you can!
