SoSS 17 - D is for Distressing


Poor old Edna certainly does seem to look somewhat distressed this week! I can share her pain...I have just discovered the number 3 key and the CAPS LOCK button on my laptop no longer work...WTF?? Talk about distressing...oh well...I digress...back to the challenge...

This week the Edna and the sisterhood would like to see some distressing on your project...this was an easy one for me. There is nothing I love more than sitting over my recycle bin in the craft room with a pair of scissors shredding up the edges of paper...yes...I know I lead an exciting life...LOL

Visit the SoSS BLOG for all the details on the challenge and while you are there show my sisters some crafty lovin'.

Here's what I made for the challenge


I used my scissors to distress the edges of all the layers including the little photo and inked them up with frayed burlap distress ink on my ink blending tool. I also frayed the edges of the burlap paper strip to make it look distressed as well.

I used the leftover ink on the blending tool on the design paper and bingo card to try and make them look more antique-y.

The cool bingo card came from some papers SISTER CHRIS sent me in a care package.

Shite I used to make this card:


  • Kraft cardstock (Recollections)
  • Ladies &Gents and Trendsetter design paper (Websters' Pages Petite Papers)
  • Vintage Finds Bingo (Teresa Collins)
  • Salvage Stickers (Tim Holtz)
  • Frayed Burlap distress ink (Tim Holtz)
  • Ink blending tool (Tim Holtz)
  • Burlap paper (DCWV)
Want to join the sisterhood?? You have until 11:55 pm EDT on Friday October 3rd to link up your project on the SoSS BLOG...maybe you will be our next Queen or Princess of Snark!!!

My card also fits the SHOPPING OUR STASH challenge for this week, Who's Who so I am going to enter the card there as well (even though I am on their design team...lol...still fun to add another project).

    You've pulled together a lovely vintagey card, even if you didn't embrace the paper fuzzies.
