A Tiny Craft - Challenge #4 - We Remember

Greetings and salutations crafty friends!

Thanks for stopping by to check out the latest challenge from the A TINY CRAFT (ATC) design team.

Our theme this month is "We Remember"  in honour of Remembrance Day and Veterans Day.

That means we want to see something related to Remembrance or Veterans Day, poppies, military theme, lots of red...however you interpret it.

I wanted to make a very distressed, perhaps old looking, perhaps left behind looking poppy. After I  sanded the Core'dinations cardstock (both the poppy and the background piece), I spritzed and crumpled the poppy up a few times to give it a more distressed look, like maybe it had fallen off of someone's coat, or been left at a Cenotaph after a Remembrance Day ceremony.


Shite I used to make this ATC:
  • Cardboard ATC base
  • Black and red Core'dinations Color Core cardstock (Tim Holtz)
  • Sanding block (SU)
  • Swiss Dots embossing folder (ProvoCraft)
  • Water spritzer (SU)
  • Large heart and 3/4" circle punches (SU)
  • Button brad
  • Big Chat sentiment sticker (Tim Holtz)
  • Black Soot distress ink (Tim Holtz)
  • Foam dots (Recollections)
We would love for you to join the challenge and play along.
You can find all the details for the challenge on the A TINY CRAFT (ATC) BLOG.
While you are there, please share some crafty love and comments with the rest of our design team and our special guest.

I'd also like to enter this ATC into the ATCs From The Heart challenge #110 - Anything Goes

SoSS #197 - is for Rude

 

Greetings and salutation snarky friends!

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

This challenge could also be the Donna challenge, I have been called this (and much worse) many a time.

Me....rude....really??? Pfffffffffffffffftttttttttttttttt, I have a toque that says I am an effing delight (see below) so I don't know what these people are on about....read the toque people, read the toque!!!  


Super cheers to my cool pal Char at Mulberry Street Craft Co. for making me this incredibly accurate toque! She really makes the coolest stuff!!!

OK back to the challenge...R is for Rude...


I had a lot of fun making this one. 
I think paper piecing might be my crafty jam.
I started with the coffee mug image, then did the background burlap overtop, then paper pieced the coffee inside the mug, the mug, the handle and the rim of the mug all separately...drew the border...added the rude sentiment and voila!

Shite I used to make this card:
  • White cardstock (Recollections)
  • Black Soot, Ground Espresso and Twisted Citron distress inks (Tim Holtz)
  • Fresh Brewed Blueprint stamp set (Tim Holtz)
  • Bit of Burlap background stamp (Market Street Stamps)
  • Colour Study paper pad (Vicki Boutin)
  • Small Talk Snarky sentiment sticker (Tim Holtz)
  • Ruler (SU)
  • Fine tip Sharpie
As always, we would love for you to join the sisterhood and play along!
