SoSS #208 - L is for Layers


Greetings and salutations snarky pals!

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

Much like my personal clothing style because I am either freezing or overheating...yep even at this time of year...our theme for the challenge is L is for Layers.

How many layers can you fit on one project??? The sisterhood wants to know!

I was lucky enough (along with a few of my snarky sisters and other crafty pals) to attend (virtually) a Crop & Create weekend in March...THREE whole days of crafting and card making!!

Now, I could NOT keep up for the life of I am slowly going back through the videos of the classes to make my cards...for this challenge, I made a card based on a class from The Stamp Market featuring the Friendly Hello stamp set, dies and stencil.

I also learned how to do some ink blending (like WAY out of my comfort zone) but how lucky am I that my generous SISTER MICHELLE gifted me a set of blending brushes before this event! I sure put them to good use! 

I don't even want to hint at the length of time it took me to make this one card - with the video AND with written instructions LMAO - hopefully you can see the 5 layers in the die cuts in the "friend" on the card.

Shite I used to make this card:
  • White cardstock (Recollections)
  • Color Crush cardstock (The Stamp Market)
  • Friendly Hello stamp set, dies & stencil (The Stamp Market)
  • Honeysuckle, Oceanside, Sprout and Grapefruit inks (Concord & 9th)
  • Mustard Seed distress ink (Tim Holtz)
  • Watering Can archival ink (Wendy Vecchi / Ranger)
  • Ink blending brushes
  • Sequins
As always, we would love for you to take up the layers challenge and play along with us.

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!
