Shopping Our Stash #402 - Gone Fishin'


Greetings crafty pals!!

Thanks for visiting today to check out the latest challenge from the crew at SHOPPING OUR STASH

The lovely and talented MiMi is our host and our theme is Gone Fishin'

That means we want to see something fishy (ha ha ha) on your project.

I used a round-ish shaped stamp block covered in Peacock Feathers ink and water spritzed to make the water background.

Now that I see my coloured in fish, I think they should be on an episode of The Simpsons!

This picture seriously disappoints me, the fishies are so much brighter and colourful IRL...but after about 15 pictures, I gave up.....sigh...



Shite I used to make this card:

  • White cardstock (The Paper Studio)
  • Birthday Buddies stamp set (Paper Smooches)
  • Peacock Feathers & Black Soot distress inks (Tim Holtz)
  • Yellow Blaze, Hot Aqua, Key Lime, Sunset Orange, Fandango Pink markers (Bic)
  • Water spritzer (SU)
As always, we would love for you to join our crew and play along!

You can find all the details for the challenge on the SHOPPING OUR STASH BLOG.

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

SoSS #141 - R is for RIP


Greetings and salutations my snarky crafty friends!

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

Sister Lindsey is our host for the challenge and our theme is R is for RIP.

This is one of those challenges that could be interpreted a number of different ways...as you will see when you check out the projects of the sisterhood.

I thought of something with Edna and muscles (ripped)...but NOPE...I ended up going with torn paper which is WAHAY more within my scope of crafty capacity.

Or...maybe I was looking for an excuse to use one of these Fabulous Life Cards I bought yesterday on a quick outing across the border....hmmmmmmm

  • White cardstock (The Paper Studio)
  • Oh Happy Day - Orange/Pink design paper (Simple Stories)
  • Miscellaneous scrap of polka dot design paper of unknown origin
  • Fabulous Life Cards (Authentique)
  • Rhinestone stickers (Michaels)
As always we would love for you to join the sisterhood and play along!!

Greetings snarky pals!

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

Timely challenge for me on this one, as you read this I will be sitting seaside in lovely Prince Edward Island.

Which, naturally, means I needed to use the lobster dies I got a few years ago in PEI!

If you are not sure that the whole "you are my lobster" thing is all about...HERE is a clip from Friends which explains it better than I can.

I am working on convincing the Kevinator that we should get cute little lobster tattoos...while we are in PEI...right???!!!???

Cuz...you know...he's my lobster!


Shite I used to make this card:

  • "Stay Magical" paper pad (Craft Smith)
  • Whisper White cardstock (SU)
  • Red cardstock (Recollections)
  • Polariod die (Paper Smooches)
  • Deep Ocean Lobster die (Memory Box)
  • Bling strips (Recollections)
