SoSS #166 - V is for Vulgarity


Greetings and salutations crafty pals!

Thanks for stopping by to check out the latest challenge from Edna and the sisterhood of snarky stampers.

SISTER CHRIS is our challenge host and our theme is V is for Vulgarity.

I am not sure if what I made is vulgar?? I went with this definition "lacking sophistication or good taste; unrefined" ...well...if that's not me in a nutshell, I don't know what is!

Perhaps I drew some inspiration from SISTER CHRIS' card for the D is for Dogs challenge...



Just some friendly fun poking towards our esteemed Prime Minister and something funny he said about "speaking moistly" in one of his national COVID addresses.

The image is a still from the show "Our Cartoon President" which honestly I have never seen, but this image came up when I googled Justin Trudeau cartoon - and I thought it worked for what I wanted to do.

Shite I used to make this card:

  • White cardstock (Recollections)
  • Image of Justin Trudeau (Our Cartoon President / Google)
  • Alphabet stamp set (Dollarama)
  • Black Soot distress ink (Tim Holtz)
  • Maple Leaf stamp (Studio G)
  • Rocket Red ink (Dew Drop)
  • Foam tape (Dollar Tree)
As always, we would love for you to join the sisterhood and play along.

Greetings and salutations crafty pals!

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

Yours truly is the challenge host this week and our theme is Keep It Simple Sister (KISS).

That means we want to see a CAS (clean and simple) card, not too many elements, not too many layers, not too many embellishments.

I have a tough time with this type of card, I tend to want to fill every little piece of space with something LOL

Here's my attempt at a KISS / CAS card:


Shite I used to make this card:
  • White cardstock (Recollections)
  • Summer Market design paper (Carta Bella)
As always, we would love for you to join our crew and play along.
