Crackerbox & Suzy Stamps: New Release Blog Hop Week 1

Hello stamping friends!! Welcome to the Week 1 New Release Blog Hop with Crackerbox & Suzy Stamps. We have so many fabulous new stamps to share with you this month. Here are the details on my first new release creation.

1 Hop Collage

I created the blended background using Distress Oxide Ink, then misted some ink on my craft mat with water and drug the edges of the card front through the inky water. Stamp the swirls using black ink around the border of the card front.

Stamp the sentiment in the middle of the card using an embossing pad and black embossing powder.


Stamp the butterfly using black ink and add colour using Chameleon Pens and Color Tops. Fussy cut, shape and adhere the butterfly to the card and then add Stickles to the middle. Add Stickles dots around the swirl border.


Thanks so much for stopping by!

Here is the hop line-up:

  1. What a gorgeous spotlight background for the sentiment, and beautiful touch with the butterfly off the top corner. I love the combo blend/smooshed look– a fabulous card suitable for the sentiment’s fabulous friend.


  2. Wow! I love how you blended those colors! Creating the border with the swirls is just lovely and I love that you paired the sentiment with the butterfly. Beautiful card!


  3. Beautiful card!! Purple and Butterflies are two of my favorite things! Thanks for sharing!
