Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers Challenge # 57 ~ Embossing



Hello!

Welcome to the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers Challenge # 57 ~ E is for Embossing.  I bet you didn't know that Edna had an embossing folder of her own image!  She likes to make her cards with it
(Blogger is acting up and my words vary in size; hope it isn't too annoying).


The water and sky were embossed with the Ink Splash EF, from Fun Stampers Journey, on Pool Play and Whip Cream CS.  I used Beach Ball Ink and a sponge to distress both embossed pieces.   I love our new little float (Don't Sink).  I think he's so cute...what about you? 

All of the products are from Fun Stampers Journey.  You can order them on my site.

SoSS Challenge #55 ~ J is for Joke


J is for Joke!



I've been missing from the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers for quite a long time.  Hopefully I be around from now on.  The stamps I used are from Crackerbox Palace Rubber Stamps.  They are Popcorn Bowl, Slimer, Popcorn Kernel, and Monster Fingers
I paper pieced a scrap of paper I made a lomg time ago using Tim Holtz Distress Stain for the bowl.  Slimer, the monster, and the popcorn were colored with Copics. I colored the background and the edges of the sayings by using a sponge and green olive ink.

Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers Challenge # 49 X is for Xmas



Hi Everyone!

Doesn't Edna look lovely in her holiday regale!  If I had realized she was Mrs. Claus I might have been a little less naughty...oh well.  Hopefully Santa understands.  Let's get on with the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers Challenge, #49, X is for Xmas.




I'm in Southern Wisconsin, hoping for a white Christmas, but it doesn't appear to be possible.  Our one and only accumulation snow was fourteen inches; all of that is gone.  I don't want a huge amount...maybe an inch or two. 

I used my favorite snowman stamp, Frosty Fun...he so adorable. Frosty, and the rest of the items I used are from Fun Stampers Journey.  I used the Bubble, Bubble Stencil with Pool Play True Color Fusion Ink on both the Pool Play And Whip Cream CS.  Silver Splash was used on the Black Licorice frame for the Snapshot Frames die set. Let it Snow and the snowflakes were stamped in Whip Cream ink are from the Snowflake Burst Stamps.  The snowflakes were cut from the matching die set.  Frosty was colored with Copics and his shadows were sprinkled with Journey Sparkle Dust.  These items can be found on my site at funstampersjourney.com/karens

Sisterhood of Snarky Sisters Challenge #44 ~ B is for Boobs!




Hi All!

Maybe you've noticed that Edna is looking a little perkier than usual.  It's probably just the pink background...it brings out her best assets.  The Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers Challenge #44 is B is for Boobs in support of Breast Cancer Awareness.  





Sister Chris and I must have been on the same wavelength since our cards are so similar.  Hers was done first, but I didn't see it before I made mine.  If I had I might have used some of the same accentuating features as hers!


I decided to show my card using two different sayings...one is nice, the other snarky.


                                                                          




October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. 
Make sure to schedule your mammogram soon!  





Have you ever wondered why letters are used to define bra sizes?
A=Almost boobs
B=Barely there 
C=Can’t complain
D= Damn! 
DD=Double damn
E=Enormous 
F=Fake
G=Get a reduction
H=Help me, I’ve fallen!

Hi!

Welcome to Challenge #42 at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers!  It's F is for Fart!!!  What a gas!  I can't wait to see what you'll come up with!






The stamps, Chocolate Farts, Chocolate StrawberryRound Candy, and Square Candy are from Crackerbox Palace Rubber Stamps. The "chocolate" was made using Liquid Appliqué. I just let it dry naturally rather than using a heat gun, which will puff it up. 

The die, DI-0037, Treat Label, is from Fun Stampers Journey .

SoSS Challenge #40: U is for Ugly


Hello Everyone!

It's Challenge #40 over at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers.  Get ready to dig deep because it is: U is for Ugly...Use the Ugliest Paper in Your Stash.  Find that paper you can't believe you bought.  Oooh, maybe the one that just happened to come in a pack...after all you hoard all your paper, no matter what!  Edna, I guess, is a true paper hoarder.   I'm one too, although I did get rid of a lot at a rummage sale three years ago.



                               

Both sentiments, Happy Birthday 1 and Birthday Voodoo are from Crackerbox Palace Rubber Stamps.  The Peony Nestibilities set is from Spellbinders.


Challenge #40 ends on Friday, August 21st, at 11:55 pm EDT
