Snarky Christmas Blog Hop for Justine's 12 Days of Christmas

Hello crafty friends,


Welcome to the So Suzy Stamps Snarky Blog Hop where funny and humorous Christmas cards take over! I am hopping along with Justine’s 12 Days of Christmas Series. If you haven’t checked it out yet, click here.  Justine has been busy creating a dozen Christmas Card video tutorials to inspire you this holiday, and best of all there are prizes to be won every day. All you have to do to be eligible to win a $25 gift certificate is comment on each of the blogs! Good luck! We will pick two winners on November 9th!




If you have arrived here from Tracy's blog you are in the right place.  Below is the order of the hop in case you need to start back at the beginning.


Hop Participants and Links:

Teresa > you are here
 

If you were to only buy one stamp from this new release you can’t go wrong with the bowl stamp.  It is so versatile that I’ve used it on several of my own projects, including Halloween (as a cauldron), a bowl for a fish or flowers, and as I‘ve used it here, a snow globe.  


Now for a look at the inside of this card!



Isn’t this funny!  I’m more a fan of red wine to begin with so of course running out of white would be just fine with me lol.

I’ve created a video for this project since it’s fairly involved and some of it is difficult to convey just in writing.  I will have a list of the products used at the end of this post.  I do use affiliate links for these (it doesn’t cost you anything extra if you shop using them) and appreciate you supporting my work on the blog. 



Thanks for stopping by!  Next on the hop is Cornelia.  Don't forget to leave a comment so you are entered into the drawing.

  2. Beautiful card. I have used alcohol inks and Ranger yupo but wasn't happy that the ink dries chalky and can be scratched or rubbed off. But you make me want to try again.

  80. So fun, and a bit of a surprise when opened! I hadn't thought to use fun foam to cut out the window on a shaker--great tip! And love the background. One more thing: I am not sure I have ever seen anyone use the MISTI for StazOn--but it's the perfect thing when using StazOn and acetate, isn't it?! No more sliding stamps! (And no more 2 out of 12 images I can use on shrink film for the grandkids!) Thank you SO much.
