Shopping Our Stash #212 - Diamonds are a Girl's Best Friend ~ Use Bling


Happy Tuesday! Time for a new SHOPPING OUR STASH challenge!! As the saying goes "Diamonds are a girls best friend." That's our theme for this week's challenge. The SOS crew would like to see some bling on your project.

Here's what I came up with for the challenge...nothing I love more than making Christmas cards in July when it's 30 degrees outside!!


Shite I used to make this card:

  • White cardstock (Fireworx)
  • Red, green and silver bling
  • Fine tip sharpie & ruler
  • Puffy letter stickers
Everything I used on this card is from my stash. I have a bag o' bling that I throw all my shiny stuff into and the puffy letters I have had so long I have no idea who made them - they are from an old card kit...at least I am using up my stuff right?? 

Visit the SHOPPING OUR STASH BLOG for all the details on the challenge and while you are hanging out there please share some crafty love with the rest of the crew. Join in the fun, we'd love for you to play along with us!!

SoSS #39 - S is for Shaker


Happy Saturday! Hope the day is warm and sunny wherever in the world you find yourself today!!

Edna and the snarky sisters are breaking out their maracas to shake it off...shake it off...for the new challenge! This week S is for Shaker!!

I am not a fan of shaker cards, wait that's not entirely true. I am actually not a fan of MAKING shaker cards. I love them when other people make them. When I make them they are weird and awkward...I need to watch some online tutorials so I get better at making them.

Nonetheless, here's what I made for the challenge with a big MUCHAS GRACIAS to SISTER CHRIS who sent me the awesome margarita glass die cut and acetate that fit it...how awesome is that??!!??


Shite I used to make this card:

  • White cardstock (Fireworx)
  • Color Chaos "Orange Strandz" design paper (Bella Blvd)
  • Margarita glass die cut and acetate (gift from Sister Chris)
  • Paper piercer and template (SU)
  • Black marker
  • Black letter stickers
  • Silver, white & pink sequins (Joanns)
Visit the SoSS BLOG for all the details on the challenge and while you are there please visit the blogs of our Guest Designer and the snarky sisters and show them all some crafty lovin!!

We'd love you to play along with us, you have until 11:55 pm (EDT) on Friday August 7 to upload your project to the SoSS BLOG.

Maybe you will be our next Queen or Princess of Snark!!
