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!

S0SS V is for Vintage

 Another great challenge from the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers! It's...

SoSS Challenge #227 - V is for Vintage


And here is my card-

and a 2nd card because I couldn't make up my mind-

The card bases are some Theresa Collins pre-made ones I've had forever. Just found them and thought I would give a go at making something with them! The vintage prints & sentiments are from Stamplorations (Retro Fashionistas and Hot Mess). The dies for the sentiments are from Cuttlebug (Labels and Such), colored with Copics and an air compressor. I also added pearls to the Half Empty card and holographic sequins to the Hot & Steamy card.

G is for Glitter

 Today I am the Guest Designer at Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers, and the challenge is-

And here is my project-


And on the inside-

 This card was put together using an alcohol ink background, and the Cas-ual Fridays items called Pop Fizz Clink Stamp Set and Champagne Flute Dies. I used gold mirror cardstock for the flutes and gold glitter cardstock for the bubbles. The gold glitter tends to cling to the plastic, but I think it looks like bubble trails!

Join in the challenge and have fun with glitter!
