Lovely Lady Cards from Crackerbox Palace That You can WIN!

It's Crackerbox Palace Thursday and today I am sharing some lovely lady cards I made with stamps that are available from Crackerbox Palace. You can win your choice of the stamps featured on one of these cards by leaving a comment at either blog. The simple requirements for a chance at winning this week’s blog candy are below.
But first- the winner of last week’s blog candy of the stamps featured on one of the cards last Thursday is                            Joann Burton!  Here is her winning comment from my blog:  “Hi Karen, I love both of these cards. They are beautiful. joann sassy raggedy
Joann, please send me or Crackerbox Palace your address and your choice of which stamps you want, so we can get you the stamps you have won.  And remember you can win another CBP stamp of your choice simply by posting a card you made with the stamps you won to your blog or Splitcoast Stampers gallery and sending us a link.
My cards today are made with some lovely lady stamps. The first one above is a beautiful Sea Breeze silhouette and I did something different with it. Instead of stamping or embossing in black like I normally would with a silhouette stamp, I embossed in a pink sparkly embossing powder on a white piece of cardstock that I attached in the center of the card. I created a window with a wonky rectangle nestie and embossed with a Sizzix embossing folder around the edge of the front.

My second card features the lovely Lady’s Back stamp and I used my oval diffuser from Tim Holtz to create an unembossed center to stamp her on. The Hexagon Illusion embossing folder is from Craft Concepts and is one of my favorites. I sponged in pink distress ink and layered on a teal card.
 So would you like to win the lovely lady stamps featured on one of today’s cards? Here is how to win our weekly blog candy:
 1.) We have decided that becoming a follower on both blogs is going to be something we would prefer you do but not a requirement.  My blog is here and the Crackerbox Palace blog is here.

 2.) Leave a comment on either my blog or the Crackerbox Palace blog on the Thursday blogpost featuring CBP stamps.  If you leave a comment on BOTH blogs, you will be entered twice in the drawing.   The deadline to leave a comment will be the following Wednesday at Noon CST. Mr. Random will pick a winner from the comments and he or she will win the featured stamp(s). You must send me ( or Crackerbox Palace (  an email with your home address so the stamps can be mailed to you. If we do not hear from you within two weeks after we announce your win, and we can’t reach you through a blog, your prize will be forfeited.  And if you post a card to your blog or to Splitcoast Stampers with the stamps you won and send a link to Crackerbox Palace, you will win another Crackerbox Palace stamp of your choice!!

Crackerbox Palace smiles, Karen
