Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers Challenge #8. "C" is for Crap!


Hello all and welcome to the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers Challenge #8 - "C" is for Crap!  Crap, you know, those things you bought with good intentions to use, but never did.  Or the fantastic items you bought years ago which are now woefully out-of-date.  These are the perfect items to use for our challenge!



I bought Micro Beads years ago to embellish my cards and not just one bag, but quite a few.  I was going to create awesomeness...that is if I had ever used them!

To use the Micro Beads I put wide Scor Tape on a piece of cardboard and ran it through my Cuttlebug using Tim Holtz's Caged Bird Die.  I peeled off the covering, poured the beads over it, and pressed to secure them on the tape.  The Core'dination cardstock background was dry embossed, sanded, and distressed with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.  The bird was die cut, sanded, and colored with Mustard Seed Distress Ink.  The crown and missing you sentiment stamps are from Tim Holtz.

Dig into your supplies, find something you wonder "Why the heck did I buy this crap", and create.  We'd love to see what you come up with.  You have until Friday, May 30th, at 11:55 pm EDT to enter at SoSS for the coveted title of Queen of Snark!  You know you want to win it!



Visit the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers for all the details and check out the awesome artwork the rest of the DT has created!

  3. Glad I'm not the only owner of unloved microbeads. I must say they are the crafting product that is best at ESCAPING! Those things roll everywhere, lol! You used them beautifully and the die cut scor-tape is genious!

  7. OMG!! I have crap micro-beads, too, Karen!! But only three little bags full ;) But, I do find myself making something with the clear ones that I have from time to time...creates a cool, almost mosaic type effect over colored images....And here--the cage looks gilded!! Very cool crap, Karen!!

  8. Microbeads = micromess! I must have gotten rid of mine before the move. I know that i bought several "vials" about 7 years ago. Your beads look great on the bird cage.
