Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers - T is for...

Thanks. For Nothing.


Come on now, surely you knew we'd put a little snark on it at the Snarky Sisters!  I tried mightily to come up with a snarky (or at least funny) thank you card, and nope. It just didn't happen.



Supplies: all stamps from PTI; Mowed Lawn Distress ink; Versamark; clear & white EP; Labels 5 Nesties; Timeless Twine; embroidery floss; vellum scraps




I was looking in the PTI set for a sentiment (which wasn't there, of course) and got the bright idea to stamp the stems as a background. As you can see they aren't quite symmetrical enough to line up, but I call it good enough. The larger leaves are stamped directly on the background, and then I stamped extras on vellum. Distress ink stays wet long enough to emboss easily on vellum - and then I fussy-cut them, and stitched them onto the background over the matching sized leaves. 

I may not have been able to bring the snarky this  time, but you are definitely going to laugh out loud at what my sisters have in store for you:

xoxo,
Jessi
