Shopping Our Stash #337 - Getting Sentimental

Greetings crafty friends!!

Thanks for stopping by to check out the latest challenge from the crew at SHOPPING OUR STASH

We are Getting Sentimental this week - that means we want to see a sentiment as the focal point of your project.

I made a cute little ATC for my project...remember I used to make ATCs a lot?? I mean a LOT??? 

Well I hadn't made one in ages and was recently reminded by my crafty pal MICHELLE how much fun they are to make.

Here's what I made using the negative space of a sentiment die:


Shite I used to make this ATC:

  • White cardstock (Fireworx)
  • Daffodil Delight cardstock (SU)
  • Design paper (SU)
  • Scripty Hello die (Lawn Fawn)
  • Year Four stamp and die set (Lawn Fawn)
  • Word Up stamp set (Paper Smooches)
  • Tuxedo Black ink (Memento)
As always, we would love for you to join the crew and play along!

You can find all the details for the challenge on the SOS BLOG

While you are there be sure to leave some crafty love and comments for the rest of the crew!

SoSS #101 - T is for Technique


Greetings friends!!

Happy new year from Edna and the sisterhood of snarky stampers!!

We are starting off the new year with T is for Technique - try something new to you or an show us an old faithful.

Be sure to tell us what your technique is and how you did it!!

I used an ACRYLIC BATIK technique, which not only have I never done, I've never even heard of it before!! 

You can find a tutorial HERE

Basically you heat emboss a background with clear emboss powder, then drip / drizzle paints over it and then scrape them off.

It made a good mess which was fun, but I found my three colours just mooshed together rather then getting the different colours like in the tutorial....ah well...was still fun to try and I hadn't used that big background stamp in ages!


Shite I used to make this card:

  • White cardstock (Fireworx)
  • Print Pattern background stamp (SU)
  • Clear emboss powder (Ranger)
  • Heat gun (Marvy)
  • Versamark ink
  • Broken China, Seedless Preserves and Spun Sugar distress paints (Tim Holtz)
  • Wondering Midge and sentiment stamps (Riley & Co.)
  • Tuxedo Black ink (Memento)
As always we would love for you to join the sisterhood and play along.

You can find all the details for the challenge on the SoSS BLOG.
