Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers: Y is for Your Mama!

It's been two weeks, and we're ready for another challenge at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers - this time around we've got a very timely holiday challenge:

I've got two cards to share - one snarky, one pretty!



Supplies: image from the Graphics Fairy; saying computer generated based on an Anne Taintor image; a bunch of embellies from my stash


Closeup of the embellishments - ribbon, fibres from my friend Denyse, stick pins, sparkly dots. I stitched everything on to keep it securely fastened & arranged the way I wanted.



Supplies: Memory Box flower die; Spellbinders butterfly die; Webster's Pages lace; sentiment from PTI; Peacock Feathers distress ink; Cuttlebug embossing folder (for butterflies); acetate; beads; Mod Podge Dimensional Magic



I really love how this card turned out - the butterflies were left over from another project, and the beaded flower centres really shine. I used Dimensional Magic in each flower centre & then poured the beads in, pressing down gently to make sure they all stuck. 

Want to make a pretty card for a mom, or a snarky card about motherhood? You've got 2 weeks, so link up by May 18! Make sure to visit my snarky sisters to see what they've created!



And our guest designer this week, SHARI, who has an incredible style you'll love! 

xoxo,
Jessi

Actually, they're BOTH so pretty! I do love the snarky sentiment on that first card but it's still a beauty! Love all the wonderful flowers on the second one.

I love both your beautiful cards, but the combination of beauty and snarky takes top prize with me. Snark has a special place in our hearts.

First card... snarky, or just honest? Hmm. I do love the contrast of image and embellishments with the sentiment. Second card is just straight out gorgeous.
