F is for Family



F is for Family! Another fun theme from the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers!

Here is my project-


I must admit, I love my Cricut. When I decided on the idea for the card, I found this image and used scrap paper from my stash to assemble this image. I used my old Dymo label maker for the sentiment, and I'm waiting to put a sentiment on the inside. I was going to put "because of the amount of pricks in it." But I'm going to wait and make it more personal, such as "because your brother/sister/mom/dad/uncle/aunt are the biggest pricks". Don't worry, it won't take long!

Please join us at Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers!

Ironmongery?

The Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers have a new challenge, and it is-

SoSS #135 - I is for Ironmongery



Ironmongery originally referred, first, to the manufacture of iron goods and, second, to the place of sale of such items for domestic rather than industrial use. In both contexts, the term has expanded to include items made of steel, aluminum, brass, or other metals, as well as plastics.

OK! So here is my card for the challenge-


My husband works with boilers to make power at a local mill. So when Frantic Stamper came out with the pipes I immediately knew I wanted to make this card! Here is a list of materials-
  1. Embossing Folder: riveted metal (Tim Holtz).
  2. Dies: bucket (Impression Obsession), pipes (Frantic Stamper), Copic on the colored pieces.
  3. Paper: copper metallic cs (DCWV-old), white cs, silver (Tim Holtz).
  4. Stamp: sentiment (Lawn Fawn-Happy, Happy, Happy)

Have a wonderful day!

WTF???

SoSS #134 - W is for WTF






Another great challenge theme from The Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers-WTF! And here is my entry-

  It all starts with the perfect sentiment from Unity Stamp Co., stamped on a Mama Elephant arched banner. The image is also from Unity Stamp, from the She used to Care set. The paper is from the Memoribilia 6 x 6 paper pad from Teresa Collins.

I'm going to leave the inside blank for a while, to marinate on an appropriate sentiment. Or until someone does something incredibly stupid. I'm betting on the second one!

A girl can be anything
