Holiday Release at Crackerbox and Suzy Stamps!

Hey crafty guys and girls! I'm guest designing and hopping with the design team today, for the new holiday release at Crackerbox & Suzy Stamps! They've got some adorable products being released and I know you'll want to hop along, check out the new release, current sales and prizes up for grabs! But first, scroll down for creative tips on my mini slimline card.

Slimline cards are all the rage right now. The standard slimline card stands on average at 9" tall. The mini slimline typically is 6" tall. The stamp images that I'm using today are rather large so I scaled down to a 6" card, to keep the focus on these seasonal cuties:

I started with a black base layer for my slimline card and created some snowy slopes using a stitched die with my die cut machine. I left black space between my slopes, to create a shadow effect and add interest. 

Next, I colored up Santa and his reindeer with Copic markers and used my Scan N Cut to turn them into die cuts that I could place anywhere on my card. I did the same for my tree, only I stamped an extra image on patterned paper and fussy cut two portions to place over my original image, keeping my tree mostly white with a pop of red.

Lastly, I used white acrylic paint to dot onto my night sky, then heat embossed the new release sentiment called "Hey Santa", onto trimmed cardstock, and adhered to my card. A bit of trimmed ribbon and embellishments from 28 Lilac Lane, finish off my card. I really love the size of these stamps which work well for scrapbooking too. You can even get the kids involved and make a bunch of cute holiday tags. So many uses!

Now, for the new release, not only will you receive 25% off through Oct. 19th, but the October sale is still going strong on Fall, Thanksgiving and more with 20% off those categories through the end of the month, as well. Sweet!

Be sure and stop by the Crackerbox & Suzy Stamps blog and follow the directions to be entered to win a $25 or $50 gift certificate. Woo hoo! Spend it on stamps, inks, whatever your little heart desires!

Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you will help support my little corner of the world and shop with my affiliate links, highlighted and scattered throughout this post. It helps me to buy a coffee and maybe one for the hubs, and at no extra cost to you! Thank you!
