SoSS #213 - Z is for Zombie

 


Greetings & salutations snarky friends!!

Thanks for stopping by to check out the latest challenge from Edna and the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers!

If you think Edna is looking a little rough - have no fear, she is just embracing the undead, brain-eating zombie side of her lovely self, and she would like you to do the same and play along with our Z for Zombies challenge!

My all time favourite zombie related stamps come from the talented and lovely Jessa Feig, creator of Useless Trinkets digital stamps. Jessa offers up all of her awesome cute and creepy creations for free!

I made two cards for the challenge...

The first one is what I imagine my skinny pig would look like as a zombie, if he stopped eating carrots and started eating brains.

OK mostly I wanted to share a picture of my totes adorbs skinny pig...here he is, HRH (His Rodent Highness) Prince Harry. 

In case you are not familiar with skinny pigs, or house hippos as they are sometimes called, he is basically a high maintenance (like super high maintenance) guinea pig with no hair other than the tuft on his nose and a little bit on his ears and toes...otherwise he is totally bald...awwwwww...poor little naked skinny pig!


ACK - I can hardly stand the cuteness of this snuggly little meat potato!!
And here is what I imagine he would look like as a cartoon zombie...


Ok for real - this is the original card I made using the zombie librarian with the "I Read Dead People" sentiment.

I based her colouring and outfit very loosely on Sally from the Nightmare Before Christmas.



If you haven't, you really need to check out Jessa's Useless Trinkets creations, they work soooo well for this challenge - (hint hint).

Shite I used to make this card:
  • White cardstock (Recollections)
  • Zombie hamster (or skinny pig in my case) digital stamp and sentiment  (Useless Trinkets)
  • Zombie Librarian digital stamp and sentiment (Useless Trinkets)
  • Fandango Pink, Lime Sorbet, Cloud Nine Grey, Sunset Orange, Rambunctious Red, Petal Pink, Key Lime, Yellow Blaze and Stone Grey markers (Bic)
  • Phthalo Blue and Prussian Blue sketch markers (American Crafts)
  • Haunted Manor design paper (Doodlebug Design Inc.)
  • Black cardstock (Recollections)
  • Spiderweb embossing folder (Tim Holtz)
As always we would love for you to join the sisterhood and play along.

SoSS #211 - W is for Wicked

 

Greetings and wicked salutations snarky friends!!

Thanks for stopping by to check out the latest challenge from Edna and the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers!

Edna is for sure channelling her inner Elphaba for this challenge - W is for Wicked

I love all things Halloweeny, so I was super excited to use the Gnome for the Holidays - Halloween collection by PhotoPlay for this one.

My sentiment is a combo of a cut up graphicat designs stamp and a Halloween stamp set my mum picked up for me from Michaels (yay Mum!!) - I swapped out the "bad" for "wicked"

I had to glam up her shoes a bit to match the sentiment, so I gave her gold stickled shoes...I know they should have been red, but red with orange hair...I just couldn't do that to her!


Shite I used to make this card:
  • White cardstock (Recollections)
  • Gnome for the Holidays - Halloween design paper (PhotoPlay)
  • Bad Witch stamp (Graphicat Designs)
  • Halloween stamp set (Michaels)
  • Tuxedo Black ink (Memento)
  • Golden Rod stickles (Ranger)
As always we would love for you to join the sisterhood and play along!

SoSS #210 - F is for F Words

 

Greetings and salutations snarky pals!

Thanks for stopping by to check out the latest challenge from Edna and the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers!

We wanna see your favourite F words!

This card was my son's idea - I was stuck for an idea and didn't want to use my go to F word lol.

Then I thought about Friday, Friends, Flowers....meh - I needed something more F than that.

Turns out the first stamp I picked (again, according to my son) was actually a raccoon and not a fox...whatever, it would have looked like a fox if I had coloured it orange...but then I found this cute (and obviously never inked up) PhotoPlay fox stamp.


Shite I used to make this card:
  • White and black cardstock (Recollections)
  • Mad 4 Plaid Fall stamp set (PhotoPlay)
  • Tags, Scallop Combo die (Sizzix)
  • Tuxedo Black ink (Memento)
  • Sunset Orange marker (Bic)
  • Fine tip Sharpie
  • Studio G alphabet stamp set
As always, we would love for you to join the sisterhood and play along.

SoSS #209 - U is for Underwater


Greetings and salutations snarky pals!

Thanks for stopping by to check out the latest challenge from Edna and the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers.

Have no fear...Edna is safe and sound...she was just being a wee tad melodramatic for the U is for Underwater challenge graphic...Sister Lee always does such a great job with these graphics doesn't she??

No snark from me this time around. I am far too cranky for snark. After two long years of being extremely careful, I made a bad call and went to a family gathering at my in laws and...you guessed it...got COVID...so it's been a bit of a bumpy week. Somehow luckily I am the only person in my house to test positive - so we are living proof that masking and social distancing does work!

As much as I do feel like drowning someone, or a few someones, I tried to not let that reflect in my underwater card...at the end of the day it was my call, I put myself in the situation and I have to be responsible for the consequences....but man it's so much more fun to blame someone else for your predicament!


Shite I used to make this card:
  • White cardstock (Recollections)
  • Monterey Bay 6x6 paper pad (PhotoPlay)
  • Monterey Bay cardstock ephemera (PhotoPlay)
  • Monterey Bay element stickers (PhotoPlay)
As always, we would love for you to take up the underwater challenge and play along with us!
