Galentine’s Blog Hop!

Friday, February 7th, 2020

Welcome to our Scrap N Stamp February Blog Hop!  Our theme for our hop & challenge this month is Galentine’s- celebrating friendships with cards you would make for your girlfriends!

 

Coffee and friends are the perfect blend for me so I knew I wanted to use my  MFT  Miss You a Latte  set.  I stamped, coloured and die cut her and her grande coffees for two.

 

Next I decided she needed a background and since I’ve been playing with the Ken Oliver Color Burst powders this week I thought it would be perfect.  Color Burst is a highly concentrated water colour pigment that let’s you achieve amazing watercolor backgrounds quickly and easily. No special tools or brushes needed.  It’s perfect if you want  the  watercolour look but don’t want the fuss.   I love the colorful spatters  you can get with a quick sprinkle of powder and a quick mist of water – the possibilities are endless.  You can check out Ken’s tutorial here

So after creating several amazing backgrounds I choose a panel and die cut it with  the new Tim Holtz Falling Hearts Die.  I mounted it askew and trimmed the card down to fit. I used one my trimmings to stamp my “let’s meet for coffee soon’ from the MFT Coffee Break sentiment set and mounted on my card. Assembled it all together with my coffee girl and a little foam tape to add depth.

 

I finished off the card with a little bling by filling a few of the hearts with Crystal  Stickles  because what is Galentines without sparkle?

Snarky New Year Blog Hop

Friday, January 3rd, 2020

Happy New Year and welcome to the first Scrap ‘N Stamp Blog Hop of 2020! We’re coming at ya with a bit of an attitude today… celebrating a SNARKY New Year. Be prepared for a bit of humor, sarcasm & sass! I’m not sure exactly what all the girls have in store for ya, but if you are feeling sensitive and easily offended today, you may want to come back and hop along with us another day! LOL

I’ll have the blog hop order at the bottom of this post, after my card. We are once again offering a $50 SNS online store GC to a random commentor along the way, so don’t hesitate to leave us some love or a snarky comment :). We also have a coupon code for you to use this weekend- SNY20 will save you $20 on any order over $75!

My card was inspired by those vintage pre-meme graphics. I knew I wanted to use the Snarky Big Talk stickers by Tim Holtz, but wasn’t sure what images to pair them with until I remembered my Paper Dolls! It’s the perfect vintage feel I was going for. I’ve used a Kraft card base with a panel that I inked up with Frayed Burlap Distress Oxide Spray . I love how one spray can give such a unique mix of colors!

The panel I chose for this card didn’t have a lot of inky texture, so I covered it up with Nuvo Glimmer Paste through the fabulous Simon Hurley Backsplash stencil. I love the texture and mix of colors it gives! Since this doll is so tall, I added a bit of torn book print and some bling to the bottom of the panel. I added a bit of ink over the snarky sticker to soften the starkness of the white words.

I selected the Paper Doll first, then went through the book of stickers to find one that seemed to suit her… how did I do? I swear, if you look close enough you can see her roll her eyes! LOL (The Snarky BIG TALK stickers aren’t available from SNS right now, but the Small Talk Snarky is fab too, just smaller!)

If you’re ready for more… check out the rest of the hop!

Have a SNARKY New Year!

Inky hugs,

Tara

White Christmoose

My card today was inspired by dreams of a winter wonderland… not something I’ve had at Christmas since moving south! I love this Merry Moose die by Tim Holtz and decided to start by cutting him from white watercolor card stock. I had plenty of ideas for this dude, but keeping it white (mostly) was the hard part! Hopefully you like what I ended up with!

Merry Christmoose/ White Christmas card

Using white on white can be a bit tricky, so I wanted to play with textures. I combined the roughness of the moose die with some smooth pearlescent white cardstock as my base. I layered another piece of the same cardstock over it. This one has some snowflakes stamped in pale blue and the addition of Nuvo Glimmer Paste stenciled over Simon Hurley’s Backsplash stencil. Such a pretty combo!

I created a bit of a scene on my card by adding the layers of trees by Memory Box & Poppy Stamps. The card needed something else, so I cut an ornament from Tim Holtz’s Christmas Circle Words die set. The top layer is from Silver Alcohol Ink card stock and the base is a piece I had inked up with Distress Oxide Sprays. I had this little die cut branch sitting on my desk as the perfect spot to hang the ornament!

Next on the hop…

Time to hop along over to see what White Christmas inspiration you’ll find from our team! Next up is Nancy E, who is taking a break from DT work right now, but still is joining us and has a great card to share! Here’s the full list- happy hopping!
