Can you guess what the challenge was this week at Crazy 4 Challenges? Yep, make a funny card or project! I hadn’t used the Tim Holtz Snarky Stickers from the November Simon Says Stamp kit so I chose one that worked with some stamps I have.
Some of the stickers will be hard to come up with images to use with them but this one was easy! I used the Hot Cocoa die set from My Favorite Things and the donut dies from Reverse Confetti. I paper pieced both with paper from Prima. I love using such pretty papers. I’ve been drawn to more clean and simple cards lately, not sure why. But I will always come back to my signature Simple Shabby style eventually!
I added a tiny bit of Vintage Photo to the edges of the die cuts just to give them a little definition. It helped them stand out from the patterned background. I thought using the cork pattern for the donut was really fun! The heart ‘sprinkles’ were cut from white cardstock I coated with a gold paint pen. I didn’t this time but I do save my scraps of fancy mirror or metallic cardstocks to use for tiny die cuts like these.
The border was cut from another sheet of patterned paper which worked perfectly here. I also made a ‘table’ of sorts for the mug and donut by sponging some grey ink on one side of a mask made from post it tape. Then I added a few sequins to finish it off. The one in the lower right corner that looks too pink is actually blush but the iridescence makes it look brighter than it really is. I love this sentiment! I don’t actually drink coffee but I think I could substitute my morning OJ! Please join us at C4C for this awesome challenge. I love seeing what you create!
