Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers Zig Zag Challenge

At the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers, its a Zig Zag Challenge!

Here is my project I'm entering-

 So, I dug through mountains (OK, mole hills) of papers and found this cool cardstock out of the White Ginger DCWV paper pad. The lady is from Artistic Impression Wine Diva set, colored with Copics (I even made her dress Zig Zag!). The sentiment is from Artistic Impression also, but a stand alone stamp. I used MFT stitched rectangles and fishtail banners for the image and sentiment. I even found some ric-rac in one of my sewing stashes!

This will go to a friend who is having a hard time aging, from her friend who is having a hard time losing weight! LOL.

Thanks for visiting!

DT Spotlight at Kitty Bee Designs

Hello! Today is my Spotlight day at Kitty Bee Designs, and here is my project-

I just love this pup! I've used this image so many different times, but everyone has been different!

Here is a list of materials I used for this card-
Paper: Cosmo Cricket (OLLLDDD!) My New Years Resolution is to use up my patterned paper, or donate it to a good cause.
Image: Cupcake Suprise, Kitty Bee Designs, colored with Copics.
Dies: stitched inside out ovals (My Favorite Things), woof (Little B).

The "woof" sentiment was cut three times and layered to give more dimension. The red panel was also popped up to add interest.

Thanks for visiting!

At Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers, this weeks challenge is "Farm Life". Here is a card I made:

In a couple of months, I will be helping a friend of mine show her Murray Gray cattle regional cow shows. The Murray Grays are really dark gray with beautiful dapples. They produce more meat on the hoof, on 1/3 of a normal cow ration! I've made a couple of these for her to use when she needs a Thank you card. The whole card was actually inspired by the tiny cowbells I found in a drawer! Here is the recipe:

  1. Country Life Cartridge-countryside (cut at 3"), cow (cut at 3 3/4")
  2. Artiste Cartridge-clouds (cut at 1 1/2" & 3/4"). I printed the sentiment (Drygulf font) onto white cardstock, then used the Center Point feature to cut the large Cloud.
  3. Tie twine around cowbell, then attach to back of cow die cut.
I really like this card-I hope she does too!

SoSS Naughty Christmas

I have been working on getting an entry in on Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers Naughty Christmas, and I think I've come up with an idea-

I haven't put a sentiment inside yet, but I have ideas! For a good female friend, something like "Details! I want details!", or "Friends need to know before Santa does!". Now if I had the guts to send this to an enemy, I would put something like "But then again, who doesn't." or "Gee, suprise, suprise."
The kraft patterned paper is from My Minds Eye Paper Bag collection, the red poinsettia cs is from DCVW 6 x 6 Holiday Jewel Mat Stack, mounted on a kraft card base. This gorgeous image is from Graphics Fairy. The sentiment is from Hero Arts Offbeat Christmas Messages, and are a real hoot!

Thanks for visiting!

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!

Hello! Today is my Spotlight day at Kitty Bee Designs, and I want to share with you this adorable image, from the Etsy store-

This is the Ty The Tiger, and isn't he just the cutest little guy? I colored him with my Prismascolor pencils after the image was foiled. The image was fussy cut, and I added a Spellbinders Sentiment One (Happy Birthday) die. The background paper is Brusho's Watercolors, and the other papers are from my scrap stash. The striped washi tape I bought at Christmas, but of course I don't know who made it! The gold dots in the lower right hand corner are a happy accident! I used Liquid Pearls Gold Pearl to make dots, and they were kinda blobby. I snapped the paper down a couple of times and they flattened out into perfect circles-which of course, I can't replicate to save my life!

Have a wonderful New Years Day!

Thanks for visiting!

Guest Designer at SoSS!

The challenge at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers is-

and to make a card that features an animal! Several ways you can interpret that, and here is mine-

I have a sister who is Vegan, who I would give this to-but not my friend who raises cattle! A very simple card, the sentiment is by A Muse Studio, the cow a Cricut cut, and some OLD paper that is in the unknown pile. I need to think something up that's snarky for the inside, like "Since cows are vegan, and I eat cows, I'm a vegan too!". Or something like that.

Now I know you all can do a lot better than I did-so get busy and join the challenge!
