SoSS #13 - L is for Layer

Welcome back for another Sisterhood of Snarky stampers challenge! This week our Alphabet Soup theme is "L is for Layer."

The sisters would like you to make a one layer card (one layer on top of a card base is OK, but no more than one layer).

Here's what I came up with for the challenge:

I went for a CAS look on this card, I scored the sides of the card base to give the illusion of another layer, but there's really just one!

Visit the SoSS BLOG for all the details on this challenge and be sure to visit the sisters and show them some crafty love too.

If you want to play along with the challenge, you have until 11:55 pm (EDT) to upload your project on the SoSS BLOG.

You Know the Rule~~Eat 5 a Day

Looking for my Clear it Out Tuesday post just scroll down.

6Fruit and Veggies that is. shopping Our Stash has planned for this challenge. The Theme is to put fruit or vegetables on your project.


Looked like this little guy has had too much of a good thing, the image is from House Mouse Designs and were colourer with  prisma colour pencils and oms. I added the blue sparkle buttons because I thought they ‘looked like blueberries (my fav).


Close up of the little rodent.


I wasn’t sure what I was going to use this card for so didn’t put a sentiment on it yet. I wonder if it would make a good get well card?

Thanks for stopping by today and now you have seen my card I hope you will join us for this great challenge, Eat 5 a Day.

Christmas in July at Clear it Out Tuesday

What do we think of in the middle of a heat wave? something cool is what I think of and christens is a favourite time for me. So to have Christmas in July is a treat. Clear it Out Tuesday is challenging your to make a Christmas card and the stash item is GLITTER. Don’t we all love glitter. Ultra fine glitter, chunky glitter or even stickles the choice is yours.The sponsor for this challenge is Stitchy Bear Outlet.



The image I used is called Snow Cuddles, it looks so soft and serene. I coloured the image with Copics and spectrum noir markers. I covered the image with double sided tape then added ultra fine glitter from Glitter Ritz. this technique is called Burnished Velvet.


I’m not sure if the picture shows  how glittery this is but it sure does in real life..


I also used a layer of glitter cardstock to the front of the card, just for added glitter,

Thanks for stopping by today and it’s time for you to have fun with glitter and make us a Christmas in July project.
