SoS #250 - O is for Outdoors

 

Best wishes and warmest regards snarky pals!

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

Edna looks like she is pursing her serenity in a beautiful setting and she would love for you to join her and show us your favourite outdoors stuff!

I did a bit of a cheatie for this one and used the March 2024 Let's Stamp Together kit from Scrapbook and Cards Today which featured some super cute stamps, dies and stencil by Taylored Expressions. I hadn't done the class yet, and thought the adorable wee bees would be prefect for this challenge.

The kraft card is a pretty close follow of the class sample, then I decided I didn't really adore the black spatters and made one without them and on a white card base, only to decide I liked the first one better lol.




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 our reigning Queen of Snark and the rest of the sisterhood!

SoSS #249 - F is for Fold It

 


Best wishes and warmest regards snarky pals!!

Edna and the sisterhood of snarky stampers are back with another fun challenge, we want to see your fancy folds, just like see Edna's hat!!

I made an easel card from the March 2023 Crop & Create. I had made this card once before, but thought it would be a great one for this challenge as well.

I do love me an easel card and the die cut from Brutus Monroe makes this fold super easy and I love love love the edge vine die!



As always, we would love for you to join the sisterhood and play along.

Going Green with Shopping Our Stash

 


Best wishes and warmest regards crafty friends!

Up WAY too early with the time change this morning (weird) and thought I would make a few cards.


I do send out some St. Patrick's Day cards, I married into an Irish family and I got married on St. Patrick's Day - so Kevinator always gets a card with some lucky sharmocks!

I used the Tulla & Norbert's Lucky Charm collection by PhotoPlay for these cards.

SoSS #248 - S is for Snarky


 
Hey friends!

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

True to our name, we are celebrating all things snarky - it is our 10th anniversary after all.

Most of the time we say that snark is not necessary, but appreciated...for this challenge it's mandatory, so let your snark flag fly and let's see what you've got!

Back in January SISTER DEENA and I spent a Sunday crafty afternoon making gel prints. I used some of them for the backgrounds of my snarky cards.

While I love love love the snarky sentiments by AALL & Create, the text is so freaking small, I will post under each card what it says so you get the full snarky effect.


If it looks like I give a damn, please tell me. I don't want to give off the wrong impression.


I would like to apologize to anyone I have not offended yet. Please be patient, I will get to you shortly.


I'm sorry I hurt your feelings when I called you stupid. I really thought you already knew.


I'm sorry, while you were talking I was trying to figure where the hell you got the idea I cared.

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 our reigning Queen of Snark and the rest of the sisterhood.

SoSS #247 - W is for Winter



Greetings & salutations snarky pals!

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

W is for Winter

I know I say this every year, but this year I am REALLY going to try to use up some of my vast collection of design papers and collections.

I based my cards on a sketch which of course I can't find now to reference, but basically the idea was the three strips of design paper on a layer of coloured paper...and I went from there.

Design paper, frames and tags and ephemera are the Winter Magic Collection from Echo Park, pearl stickers from Michaels.




As always we would love for you to join the sisterhood and play along.

You can find all the deatils for the challenge on the SoSS BLOG.

While you are there, please share some crafty love and comments with our reigning Queen of Snark and the rest of the sisterhood.

Heart's Quest Challenge Blog #46

 
One of the things I love about being on the snarky stameprs design team is checking out all of the amazing creations that others make. 

Sometimes I come across a new (to me) challenge blog and I just cant resist playing along.

For the Heart's Quest Challenge Blog #46 I used from part A - image of a girl and from part B heart shaped sticker.

I based my cards on the scrapbook nerd Wild Card Wednesday #48 with paper weaving.

Jingle Belles - Wrap it Up

 


It's the most wonderful time of the year!! Time to get a head start on 2024 holiday and Christmas cards!!!

The lovely ladies of Jingle Belles are encouraging us to use some wrapping paper or tags on a project.

We  (I) make our own gift labels every year, cuz let's face it, I have a LOT of Christmas paper.

Here's a label that was on one of my gifts this year (actually a recycled tag from last year!!)


And here are the two cards I made using that same paper (and Sharpie) featuring a few dancing characters sent to me by my awesome crafty pal Deena. She is so awesome she even put them together for me. I love the little dancing / swinging legs, but I loathe all the tiny pieces!!!




Entering these cards for JINGLE BELLES - WRAP IT UP

As my lovely crafty pal Jo pointed our, there is a wee bit of gold in each card, the star on the tree and the belt buckle on Santa, I am also entering these into the CHRISTMAS KICKSTART CHALLENGE #82 - THE MIDAS TOUCH
