The Art of Art-i-ness


The Sisterhood is getting arty and wants to see your arty techniques. Do you like splatters? Layers? Texture? 

In my stash I found I had a Gelli printed piece of paper.  I cut the paper into 4 (not equal because that would require measuring)pieces.  I added some stamping, then another layer of white Gelli printing with a stencil, followed with some black spatters. The papers seemed to plain, so I added a contrasting lime green paint for liveliness. I took out my rapidly aging sewing machine (the bobbin winder quit working two years ago) to stitch a border around each card; then I added sentiments and Tim Holtz's Found Relatives. Viola! Art themed cards with kids.





You have until 11:55 PM EST on Friday July 7 to upload your ARTY project HERE. Please visit our current Queen of Snark, Queen Toni, and my fellow Snarky Sisters to see what inspiration we have made for you. Thanks for stopping by and having a peek at my blog.

I'm Not Drunk. Yet

 I haven't gotten anything made for the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers lately. I have been on quite the bender! However I managed to sober up long enough to create a card for a challenge that is close to my heart. Welcome to Challenge #86: D is for Drunk!




Here is my project that I sobered up to make. The image of the not so happy lady I bought from Lisa's Altered Art on Etsy. That little shop has a bunch of fun vintage images for sale. The sentiment stamp is from Riley and Co.



If you would like to join in the drunken revelry, you have until 11:55 PM EST on Friday, June 23rd to upload your project on the Sisterhood's challenge post. Please visit our reigning Queen of Snark, Emily, and my fellow Snarky Sisters to see what that managed to pull themselves together and make for your inspiration.


Thanks for stopping by, and CHEERS! Now where did I sit my gin and tonic?

Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers Challenge #82: E is For Elegant


E is for Elegant this week at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers. Look at how well Edna cleans up!

I chose to be elegant and a bit silly for this challenge.  Audrey Hepburn is often thought of as elegant, and by adding the phrase, "Stay Classy," my card isn't too serious. This is a great card to send to a friend.

Slap Me and Call Me Silly

We're getting silly at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers. Everyone, including Edna, has gotten quite goofy. I made this card with my WRMK Precision Press. I may have gotten a bit NUTS!

The stamp reads,"Thank an English teacher! You know the difference between feeling your nuts and feeling you're nuts! 

To play along with Challenge #81: S is for Silly, you have until 2355 on Friday, April 13 to upload your project here. Please visit our current reigning queen,  MARGO and my Snarky Sisters to see what inspiration they have provided.

I'm the Queen


HRH Queen Ednatoria


Challenge #80 is brought to you by the letter "Q". "Q" is for Queen. Make us something queenly, which can be a Mother's Day card, a birthday card for your bestie, or hate mail for your lady boss. Show us something majestically snarky.




I used a bunch of fun toys on my tag. I finally used my new Precision Press stamping tool by WRMK. Those letters are individuals, so this tool was really handy. Also new were the Distress Oxide inks in Broken China and Worn Lipstick. Other supplies: black Staz-On, Inktess Blocks, white embossing powder, my Silhouette, and gold calligraphy ink. Enough about me.

You need to go get busy. You have two weeks, until 2355 EST on Friday, March 31st to upload your project onto the Snarky Sisters blog. Please visit my snarky sisters and our guest designer, Paula, to see what inspiration pieces they have made for "Q" is for Queen.

Thanks for stopping by my blog!

Don't Be Jealous



Challenge #79 is ready to play along with at The Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers! You don't have to be envious of our snark, you can make your own snark too! Use the theme "Green with Envy" for this challenge.  Show us something green or something about envy.




I found this digital gem at Mo'sDigital Pencil. The background is paint and stencil and the image is colored with Copics.
