I thought I’d continue on with our Scrap ‘N Stamp ‘Snarky New Year’ blog hop theme with today’s card! If you missed the Hop, be sure to check it out! Enjoy the snarky humour – it’s all in good fun, of course! You can start at my post HERE. Today’s card is made with the same sentiment stamp set, called Laugh ‘Til You Leak by Dyan Reavely. The sentiments in this set just cracks me up!
LAUGH ‘TIL YOU LEAK
I had lots of fun creating today’s card. Fun, bright colours, stencils & more were all put to use.
You’d definitely have to choose carefully who you send this card to – it’s a special sense of humour that would appreciate it!
To start, make your ‘extra marbles’, so that they have time to dry. Use small circle dies or punches to create ‘marbles’ in your colour scheme. Create the shine accent with a white gel pen. Next, use Nuvo Crystal Glaze and apply it over the entire circle. Set them aside to dry.
Now, on a piece of white cardstock, use the MFT Confetti Stencil set and apply 3 different colours of ink. My choice of colours is Peacock Feathers, Mustard Seed and Shabby Shutters Distress ink. Use one stencil for the top, and the 2nd stencil for the bottom, to cover the entire panel. These fun coloured dots are your ‘marbles’! Next, use the MFT Wonky Stitched Rectangles dies to die cut the stenciled panel, plus 2 more in the same or similar colours to the ink. Create a card base from the 3rd colour.
Use glue or tape to layer the die cut rectangles to the card base, offsetting them on angles. Stamp the sentiment from the Laugh ‘Til You Leak set in Nocturne ink onto white cardstock. Cover with clear embossing powder, and heat set. Next, cut the sentiment apart, and attach the strips to the card front, with fun foam or foam tape. Once your die cut/punched ‘marbles’ are dry, attach them to the card front – watch out, they’re escaping through the ‘hole’!
Now, with a sentiment like this on the front, you may want to soften the statement with one inside!
After die cutting the stenciled panel, I used the leftover frame and attached it to a white panel, on the inside of the card. The sentiment is from the MFT Sassy Pants Best Friends stamp set. No one could be mad at this, right?!
I hope that you’ve enjoyed my card today, and seen how snarky doesn’t have to be mean!
