SoSS #190 - C is for Colourful

 

Greetings and salutations snarky pals!!

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

Edna is rocking her best tie dye look for the C is for Colourful challenge.

My colourful card started its life as a scrap journal page that I had used to clean off a stencil. I hate wasting paint, so the baby wipe I used to clean the stencil was then used to smoosh on the cardbase to create most of the background.

Next I added the big burlap background stamp (which would you believe I have never used?????) then the images and sentiment and voila...colourful card.

Umbrella man (as I call him) is my ALL TIME favourite Tim Holtz image...I have two of him, this one slightly smaller than the other.


Shite I used to make this card:
  • Journal page card base (SU)
  • Green, yellow, orange, blue acrylic paints (Artist's Series)
  • Baby wipe
  • Bit of Burlap background stamp (Market Street Stamps)
  • Purely Random stamp set (Tim Holtz)
  • Turquoise Gem chalk ink (Versa Magic)
  • Small Talk Snarky sentiment sticker (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 our reigning Queen of Snark and the rest of the sisterhood.

  • Digital Rockabilly image
  • Sentiment sticker (Krissyanne Designs)

Two Old Bats Halloween Challenge

 


I am very much enjoying making some spooky Halloween cards to play along with the Two Old Bats Halloween Challenges.

Their monthly theme for July is Just Anything Halloween...easy enough right?

I have a bag of miscellaneous Halloween crafty stash, I broke that open to make this card...but...I have NO idea who made the design paper or punch out embellishments...if you recognize it, please let me know.

After Halloween last year my mum picked me up this "Creep It Real" sentiment stamp, perfect fit for this card...thanks mum!


Shite I used to make this card:
  • Black cardstock (SU)
  • Design paper and punch out embellishments (??)
  • Black Soot ink (Tim Holtz)
  • Versamark ink
  • White embossing powder (Recollections)
  • Creep It Real sentiment stamp (Recollections)
  • White paint pen (Artistro)
I would like to enter this card for Just Anything Halloween at Two Old Bats Halloween Challenge.

Two Old Bats Halloween Challenge

 
When the mojo hits, you gotta roll with it. I have had NO motivation to get crafty for the better part of a month...then yesterday and today...maybe being away from home for a few days did me more good than I realized, a change of scenery and all that...

This is what the Two Old Bats Halloween Challenge mood board for June looks like:


And here's the card I made based on the mood board (and I've really been wanting to break into my Boo Crew collection kit from Simple Stories).


Shite I used to make this card:
  • White cardstock (Recollections)
  • Boo Crew design paper design paper (Simple Stories)
  • Boo Crew cardstock stickers (Simple Stories)
  • Spider punch (Studio G)
As mentioned at the beginning of this post, I made this for the June Two Old Bats Halloween Challenge.

Keeping It Neutral with Jingle Belles


I am on a Christmas card making roll this week!
I may have mentioned before that I REALLY like making Christmas cards.
Not so much for my crafty pal MICHELLE who was lovely enough to gift me a bag of Christmas themed stuff (yay!).

When I saw that the new challenge at JINGLE BELLES is Neutral Noel, I knew that some of the papers and embellishments would be perfect!

Here are the two (mostly) neutral cards I made:


Shite I used to make this card:
  • Kraft cardstock (Recollections)
  • Lost and Found Christmas design paper (My Mind's Eye)
  • Lost and Found Christmas brads (My Mind's Eye)
  • Lost and Found Christmas accessory sheet (My Mind's Eye)
  • Foam tape (Dollar Tree)
Then I made this card, it was in the bag of Christmas stuff, but I have no idea where it came from or who made it (lemme know if you recognize it!).


As noted at the beginning of this post, I made these cards for the JINGLE BELLES Neutral Noel challenge.
