SoSS #158 - Upcycle

Greetings and salutations snarky pals!

Hope everything is well in your socially isolated corner of the world.

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

Not sure about you, but I am sure glad I have crafting to occupy some of my time over the past few weeks.

For the Upcycle challenge, Edna wants to see something upcycled on your project, maybe something that was not originally crafty, or an upcycled theme to your project.

At the time I made this ATC for the challenge, (April 8) we were in week 4 of social isolation and my ATC pretty much reflects how I feel about people who are not abiding by social distancing.

My upcycle piece is the background of the ATC which was originally part of a tissue box. The piece on the left in the picture shows what it looked like originally.

For the background I layered a piece of vellum on the cardboard background, inked up the embossing folder and ran it through the Cuttlebug.

Shite I used to make this ATC:

  • ATC background (tissue box)
  • Hexagon embossing folder (SU)
  • Mustard Seed distress ink (Tim Holtz)
  • Paper Dolls (Tim Holtz)
  • Film Strip Ribbon (Tim Holtz)
  • Apha Cards (Tim Holtz)
  • Small Talk Snarky sentiment sticker (Tim Holtz)
  • Stapler
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!

Take good care, stay safe and be well. 💓

Wow! Never thought about using a tissue box. And now I will, next time I make ATC's. I love how the colored and embossed vellum overlay still lets the original design show through. And I totally agree with this sentiment! Awesome!

Very cool. I have used kleenex boxes for art as well.
