Shopping Our Stash #380 - Tic Tac Toe


Greetings friends, thanks for coming by to check out the latest challenge from the crew at SHOPPING OUR STASH

Mimi is our host this week and she has created a super TIC TAC TOE for the challenge



I went with the middle column, stamps, more than 5 years old and happy birthday...you can never have too many birthday cards in your stash right??!!??

Everything on this card with the exception of the glitter glue on the hat is more than 5 years old (the cardstock, the ink, the stamp set, the sequins).

I drew the border with a ruler and sharpie and I am pleased with how it sets of the image and sentiment.




Shite I used to make this card:

  • White cardstock (Fireworx)
  • Celebrate Blueprint stamp set (Tim Holtz)
  • Sentiment Sampler stamp set (Paper Smooches)
  • Tuxedo Black ink (Memento)
  • Sequins (Joanns)
  • Ruler
  • Fine tip Sharpie
  • Glitter glue (Dollarama)
As always, we would love for you to join our crew and play along.

SoSS #122 - F is for....Fantasy


Greetings snarky pals!

Thanks for stopping by today for the latest challenge from Edna and the sisterhood of snarky stampers!

This time around, F is for Fantasy (I know you are surprised THAT is our F word right??!!??)

Edna wants to see your most favourite fantasy beasties on your project...fairies, unicorns, mermaids...or this guy (OK maybe that's just me)


Anywho....back to the challenge.

I am in the midst of making literally  hundreds of holiday cards for an upcoming fundraiser that I am participating in, so my card for the challenge was a pretty quick cut and paste using the "Stay Magical" paper pad by Craft Smith.


The metallic paper around the image takes on a cool reflective effect in the light.

Ok, so I got a little carried away and then made a total of 18 cards - LMAO

Here are a few of my other faves:










Shite I used to make these cards:

Shopping Our Stash #377 - Not Your Average Card


Greetings and salutations crafty pals!

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

This week Chris is our host and the theme is brought to you by Barb.

Our theme this week is "not your average card"  that means no square, rectangular, round or oval cards. We want to see a card or project with a unique shape.

The two crafty projects I struggle with most are...shaped cards (lol) and masculine cards...so I decided to do a two-fer!

We are very blessed to have the most wonderful neighbours and one of these wonderful neighbours is having a big birthday this week, so I knew I wanted to make him an extra special card.

I used THIS tutorial for my screen divider card.


I love using metallic papers, but they are a sonofa to photograph!!

Here's a closer look at each panel:





Shite I used to make this card:

  • Black & metallic silver cardstock (Recollections)
  • Diamond plate embossing folder (Provo Craft)
  • Decorative label punch (SU)
  • Craftsman chipboard stickers (Prima Marketing)
  • Craftsman tiny alpha cardstock stickers (Prima Marketing)
As always, we would love for you to join our crew and play along.
