I wanted to make sure I got this out in time for the 4th of July since June is flying by. I think this is a card that could be used any other time not just for the 4th.
The stamps are new from Crackerbox Palace.
The center image is a single image and colored with Copic markers.
The flag and saying are also new and colored with Copic markers. and cut out. I put them on cream colored card stock.
The stripes on the bottom of the card as well as the stars and stripe on the top are cut from the border of a 12x12 piece of paper.

Here is the other one I forgot to post so it is also late, sorry.
The blue background card stock was embossed with the Cuttlebug embossing folder that is suppose to be branches. I put VersaMark over the embossed areas and then clear embossing powder.
The image and saying are some of the new stamps from Crackerbox. I colored the image with Copic markers and cut it out.
The saying is cut out with Spellbinders and inked around the edges.

I am so sorry this is a little late, I thought I scheduled it to post.
Well, if this gives you any ideas, just change the Happy Father's Day to Happy Birthday or Thinking of You.
These are some of our new stamps from Crackerbox Palace. I made something quick and a little on the plain side since that's what my dad said he prefers so I thought someone might also like a quick card. The watch and knife were stamped, colored with Copic and cut out. I tried a punch at the bottom in hopes it wouldn't make it look to 'girly' and then used the silver dots.
I hope everyone had a great Father's Day!!!

I stamped our lady on Crygon card stock and colored her with Copic markers and then cut her out (only because I planned to put her on a different colored card stock, but then decided not to).
The background is cut out using Spellbinders. The black background is black glossy paper.
The pink is embossed with Cuttlebug Swiss dot embossing folder and then mounted on black glossy too.
I stamped the Happy Birthday on metallic card stock and cut around it. I added the rain drops as embellishments.

Currie Churchill made this really cute teacher's lunch box. It can be given as a teacher's gift before school begins and maybe fill it with extra pencils, crayons etc. Or a gift for the teacher after the year is over and maybe fill it with chocolate. Or the stamps themselves would be a great teacher's gift that she could use.
She cut her paper that looks like lined school paper to cover the front and the back of the lunch box. She then cut out a design to mount the stamped images on. All of the Teacher's stamps are new to Crackerbox Palace stamps.
She added a bottle cap for an embellishment as well as a To: tag.
She stamped the solid Crackerbox hearts on the bottle cap also.
The back of the lunch box is just as cute as the front.
She added twine to hang a tag from the handle.
Currie stamped the 'please check' on a printed piece of paper then glued it to a Tim Holtz Tags and when it is dry cut around it.
She made cards that a teacher might hand out to the kids as a gift for inside of the lunch box-great idea!?

Sorry it has taken so long for a posting. Living with parents to take care of them does take a lot of time.
Currie Churchill made this Memories book from some of our new stamps that we have added to the Crackerbox Palace stamps.
She used a Sizzix die that is from Tim Holtz and layered it on script printed paper.
The book itself is cut from another Sizzix die. She covered card board with kraft paper and then cut it out. She stamped our new watch stamp as well as one of Crackerbox's background stamp.
Currie added her own lines with a light brown marker.
The airplane is a Crackerbox Palace rubber stamp she stamped and cut out. She then added the cute pictures of the kids.
Again, she drew her own lines to write on. The 'Woo Hoo' is one of Crackerbox's stamps and the 'thumbs up' is one of the new ones. She then cut out some more great family pictures.
The girls were so happy to see Stitch.
This smaller memory book is so much fun for the girls to have, just their size. 'You Rock' is one of Crackerbox's stamps and the new one is the coffee stamp.
I hope you enjoyed the idea of the memory book that Currie did.
