The Doctor

SoSS #143 - L is for Liquor

Well, typically for me, the last minute arrives again! Here is my project for the challenge at SOSS-

I love this AI stamp-she can go with any funny sentiment stamp! The sentiment is from Riley & Co., and I've been itching to use it. The background paper is some old DCWV Mat Stack, and along with some magenta stars and iridescent ovals I've used up some bits & pieces!

Thanks for visiting!

Wallet Card

Challenge #116 – Pets at Your Next Stamp 

I found this challenge while doing my DT thing of commenting, and I'm so glad I did! Here is my entry-

This is a wallet card, by Dreaming Tree. Its a freebie! I had some faux leather by Cricut and cut the main body out of it. I can't remember who had the double sided cardstock of stripe and horseshoes, but I thought it would be great for the pockets and the closure. I printed up the Father's Day sentiment and used a My Favorite Things rounded rectangle for the mini-cards. On the blank card I stamped the sentiment and pup from Your Next Stamp called Paw-some Pups and added my message (Sophie is a Beagle, and Filo is a Yorkie).
Thanks for visiting!

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!

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!
