Grad card

SoSS #249 - F is for Fold It

 The Sisterhoods new challenge is Folds! And here is my project to enter the challenge-

 This is a graduation card I made last year for a nephew. The card itself is CREAlies - Dies - On The Move #15 Design N. It has so many dies, it is a snap to put together. The letters and numbers were cut with my Cricut, and the stickers are some really old ones I found in my stash. I really like how well it stands up for display purposes!

Besides the SoSS, I would like to enter the following challenges-

I suck at apologizing...


SoSS #248 - S is for Snarky


 Another fun challenge from the Sisterhood, and here is my entry-

and if you don't like profanity, don't go any further!
And the inside-

I wish I had made this earlier-I had the perfect person (and situation) for it!

The background is a water color panel that has been languishing in my oopsie pile for a long time. The panel is from Altenew (Striped Leaf Cover Die), image is from Stamplorations (Retro People), and the sentiment is computer generated.

I'm entering this at Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers S is for Snark.

Happy Winter, y'all!

SoSS #247 - W is for Winter

 Another fun challenge at the Sisterhood! Here is my project-

I swear, if it wasn't for the last minute, nothing would get done.

This card all originated from the sentiment set Freezin' My Snowballs by Unity Stamp Co. The cute pups are by Mama Elephant (Yappy Woofmas). I may send this to my brother in Reno, NV as the Cascades and Sierra Nevada mountians are getting hit with a big snowstorm right now.

I am entering this at SoSS W is for Winter.

Yay! The Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers are back!

 I'm really thrilled that the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers are back! And that they are choosing their challenge to honor Jessi.

Here is my project-

Jessi loved googly eyes! If you go to her blog here, you can see what a sense of humor she had, and how many times she added googly eyes to her creations! 

I'm also entering this at:

Christmas Kickstart Challenge #82 - The Midas Touch The dog tag is in gold mirror card stock. I hope that is enough gold!

SoSS #235 - S is for Steampunk


 What a neat challenge! I'm not real comfortable with Steampunk, so here it goes-

What's better than cars and gears for a gearhead? The embossing folder is Steampunk by Tim Holtz, which I colored with Tie Dye, Evergreen Bough, Rusty Hinge Distress Inks, then added Memento Cocoa Brown. The gears are by Spellbinders, and the car is from Stampers Journey Mr. Classy set. Added the sentiment cut with a MFT banner die, and voila! My attempt at Steampunk.

Y is for Yuck

SOSS #230 - Y for Yuck

 And I have a card today that represents Yuck twice!

Is there anything worse than crap? Or feeling like crap? I dunno. But this is great for the males to receive because I swear, they have a fascination with crap. This was made with Unity Stamp Co. Stinkin' Cute stamps set.

Have a great day!

I is for Inky


SoSS #229 - I is for Ink

 And here is my project-

I used the Alcohol Ink Lift Pad (Tim Holtz), and Paper Smooches stamp set Feline Friends. When used together it lifts the ink off the paper! The alcohol ink panel was one of my first ones I ever made, and the Alcohol Ink Lift Pad worked like a charm. Added some butterfly brads and embossed a sentiment on vellum and came up with a cute cat card.

E is for Expletives

SoSS Challenge #228 - E is for Expletives

 Well, here I am entering another challenge at SoSS! Love these themes!

Here is my project-

The image is a new one for me (clearance rack, 1/2 off!), and I mean how could I resist? Colored with Copics, she's really a pretty lady. She's from Artistic Impression (The Queen Set).  The sentiment is from Unity Stamp Co. (sadly, discontinued), and the die tag is from Spellbinders Fancy Tags 2. The brick wall is an embossing folder from Darice, using Fired Brick Distress Oxides. The window is from Poppy Stamps (Large Window Die).

I hope you like!
