Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers Embossing Challenge


At the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers, the challenge is to emboss. I have two methods on this card, which I made for my husband's birthday this coming Monday. He's a gear head, so it's perfect for him!



And since he has a pretty wicked sense of humor himself, here's the inside-






He'll get a kick out of that Unity Stamp Co. sentiment!

The embossing folder is Tim Holtz Steampunk, and I used TH Distress Ink Fossilized Amber on the embossing folder on white Neenah cardstock. I then used TH Distress Ink Broken China, Evergreen Bough and Ground Espresso to create the faux patina you see. I applied Versamark ink with a cosmetic foam wedge, applied Zing gold embossing powder, and randomly rubbed some of it off, then heat embossed.

The old Stampin' Up vintage Corvetted was stamped with Moss Green ink, and I used the Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher to staple the gold twine to the corners. Then the embossed panel was glued to the Bazzill dark gold, then to the American Crafts dark brown cardstock.

Shopping Our Stash Challenge-Chipboard

Well, I went a wandering through my bookmarks looking at what challenges were out there, and I came across Shopping Our Stash chipboard challenge. And boy, do I have some OLD chipboard stuff I just found! Here is my project for the challenge-


Everything on this card came out of my stash! I have a basket of die cuts (stuff that was the wrong size/color) that the brown circle, butterfly, gold tags and gold scallop circle came out of. The stripes were made out of fabric tape I bought but hadn't used until now. The chipboard "celebrate" came off a brand new sheet of chipboard sentiments I found in the chipboard bin. I have no clue who the manufacturer of any of this is! Perfect for a Shopping our stash challenge.

Thanks for visiting!
