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

Edna has got her kraft on for this one, and she'd love for you to play along! That means we want to see kraft somewhere on your project!

I love love love love kraft cardstock - it gives a retro vibe and helps really POP any colours.

I used one of my all time fave snarky stamp sets by our very own SISTER CHRIS (one of two she created!!) called "SOME SNARK."

SHITE I USED TO MAKE THIS CARD:
  • Kraft and white cardstock (Recollections)
  • Cherry Cobbler cardstock (SU)

  • Some Snark stamp set (Chris Dring Designs)

  • Paper crimper (Fiskars)
  • Rambunctious Red marker (Bic)
As always, we would love for you to join the sisterhood and play along. You can check out all the details for the challenge on the SoSS BLOG.

We wanna see something to do with birthdays on your project.

I have a lot of September birthday cards to make...so I made a few different versions of the card below.

SoSS #216 - O is for Old


Greetings & salutations snarky pals.

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

We are celebrating all things OLD (people or stuff).

Edna looks like she has found a super cool vintage junk shop...I want to join her there!!

I went with old people and a snarky sentiment from my man Tim Holtz.

I practiced my layered stenciling with this super cool "create in quads" stencils that were part of the March Crop & Create card making event. 

The more I use those blending brushes (thanks Michelle!!!) the more I like stenciling and blending.

With the quad stencils you create 4 different card fronts at once...how awesome is THAT??

The sentiment sticker is covering a wee spot where I tore the stenciled layer....meh...LOL...that's probably (maybe) where I would have put the sentiment anyway.


Shite I used to make this card:

  • White cardstock (Recollections)
  • Create in Quads - Hexagon Layering Stencil (Taylored Expressions)
  • Peacock Feathers, Fossilized Amber and Mowed Lawn distress inks (Tim Holtz)
  • Watering Can archival ink (Ranger)
  • Blending brushes
  • Snarky Big Talk sentiment (Tim Holtz)
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.

While you are there please share some crafty love and comments with the rest of the sisterhood.

  • Cardboard ATC base
  • Prickly Pear stamp and die set (CTMH)
  • Slang Gang stamp set (Paper Smooches)
  • India Black Ink (Hero Arts)
