Snarky and Different

It's time for a new Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers challenge! The new one is certainly a challenge for this sister: L is for Layers. I did think about making a card with chickens on it (get it?) but then decided to go all out and accept the challenge. In doing so, I combined it with the current challenge at Time Out: Different. Let me show you my card: 

Here are some of the ways this is a DIFFERENT card for me: 
  • So. Many. Layers. I even double matted each of the patterned paper panels. 
  • Total lack of snark for a Snarky challenge. (This does occur, but I try not to let it happen too often.) 
  • Fancy, frilly edge - made with a punch. 
  • Muted colours. 
  • A big velvet embellishment. 
Of course, you see I have all the supplies to do this very different card - but as the meme states, collecting crafting supplies and using them are two different hobbies. :D Other than the Graphic 45 paper, which I always love, most of the other supplies are from long-ago giveaways. The edge punch is actually a friend's. 

Some of my sisters are naturals at using layers on their cards, some are more like me - but check the Snarky blog to see how we have all risen to the challenge! Our current Queen and guest designer happens to be a former sister, Jane. Layer it on and join us! 

Supplies: Stampin' Up naturals white & Recollections black cardstock, Graphic 45 Typographic patterned paper, Hero Arts newspaper background stamp, MFT biscotti ink, Martha Stewart edge punch, Maya Road black velvet pleats, foam tape

Pin It Now!

It's a challenge but kinda fun to outside your normal creative box. This is fabulous, love the layers and different style from you. 😉

10/10 for both layers and 'different'! Given how fabulous this is, maybe layers *is* a thing for you!

I love it when a challenge pushes us outside our comfort zone and although this is way outside yours you've really rocked it.
