Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers - #169 "S is for Slider"

 Good morning all my snarky friends!

Well... Edna has quite the challenge today at Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers ...



"S is for Slider"

I tried really, really, really hard to come up with a slider card.. 

but I just couldn't resist this little guy instead!

 (He can slide, so it works for this challenge!)   LOL!!

I know, I have a really warped sense of humor.... LOL!!! My boys just think I am weird! Regardless, this little guy works, and the stars and the explosion he is sitting on are all stamped and embossed!


I do hope you will share your "Sliders" with us today! The challenge is open for 2 weeks, so get busy! And do take a moment to check out what the Sistahs have come up with! 


Have fun!

Try it on Tuesday - Use Your Scraps

 This week at Try it on Tuesday, there is a new challenge up ... 

"Use Your Scraps"


I had some scraps of patterned paper and some scraps of torn book pages from a layout I created. What better way to use your scraps, than by making a tag... just for fun! 

I adhered my papers down using Matte Medium. I stamped some circle on my book pages, as well as the same ones on the base paper so I could overlap my book page circles. I added some some dote, a Tim Holtz paper doll, colorized with teal, and colorized my circles as well. Added some washi tape and my sentiment.. and done! A scrappy left over tag!


I do hope you join us at Try it on Tuesday and share your projects! And don't forget to go over and check out hat an amazing job the DT has done using their scraps! 

Have a fantastic day!

Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers - #168: F is for Friends

 Good Morning all my snarky pals! 

Edna has a great new challenge this week at Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers ...

"F is for Friends"




For this challenge I made a 6" x 6'" art journal page using some Golden Iridescent Copper which I painted over the page, and then used a stencil The Crafter's Workshop .. TCW461 Rosetta to wipe away some of the paint from the base.  I added some circles using a stamp and Archival Sepia ink. I then spritzed on some Tattered Angles Burlap mist, added my image, some washi tape and my sentiment! Easy Peasy!



I do hope you will join Edna and the Sistahs for this fun challenge! 

Happy Creating!
