This fortnight at the International Art & Soul Challenge we're playing Tic-Tac-Toe!

IAAS Tic-Tac-Toe

I used the right-to-left diagonal row: Embossing + Die + Image. The stamps & matching dies are a set from Elizabeth Crafts.

And then it opens up...

I put a message section on the back.

Funky Chickaletta
The current Challenge at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers is Friends, so I jumped on the chance to use this silly image I printed recently from the Nick Jr. website, my favorite Paw Patrol character, the mayor's best friend & pet purse chicken, Chickaletta!

Paw Patrol makes great fodder for the snarky-at-heart; there are lots of blog posts out there by snarky parents like me who watch way too much of it!  I stole the sentiment from a meme, printed it using American Typewriter font, and stamped the bubble with a Latina Crafter stamp.  I colored Chickaletta with Copic markers & added some bling with a glitter pen. She's on an Action Wobble, so that she can do the Funky Chickaletta! I even added a brad to represent Wally, another animal friend in the show. I obviously had way too much fun with this!

You're so sharp -- Good News at the UnstampaBelles

Our theme this month at the UnstampaBelles challenge is: Good News with the optional twist of: Make Your Own Background.
You need to follow the twist to be considered as the DT Favorite, but you only have to follow main theme to win our prize. And remember, no stamps!

I made the "You're So Sharp!" sentiment with the Giddyup Std font and then die-cut. I made my own stencil with a cactus die from the same die set, inked it onto a coated Core'Dinations cardstock, embossed with with a cactus-patterned embossing folder, and then sanded the the raised pattern.

Tuesday Throwdown #463: (Tue) Use a Stencil (I used a die as a stencil)

Peter Rabbit Fun -- Inspired by a Book at International Art & Soul

This fortnight at the International Art & Soul Challenge our theme is Inspired by a Book. Check out the beautiful sample projects by our Design Team at International Art & Soul, then use your imagination and have fun!

I chose the book The Tale of Peter Rabbit by Beatrix Potter. Mom recently gave me an issue of Make Special Cards magazine that came with a ton of Peter Rabbit-themed papers, toppers, and stamps! She also lent me this Window Pop die from Fun Stampers Journey.
