Celebrating Snarktoberfest 2018!!

Hello crafty friends,

Today is an especially fun day because the design team at Crackerbox & Suzy is participating in Josefine Fourage's special event in October, which is dubbed "Snarktoberfest".  The whole purpose behind it is to have fun and make snarky stuff.  Crackerbox & Suzy has SOOOO many snarky stamps that you could spend hours looking at them all.  I thought this kitty stamp was just a perfect match for the sentiment (the snark is on the inside....wait for it).  Keep looking if you want to see what the punchline is.

And here it is

Oh my goodness this makes me laugh every time I read it.  :) :) :)

For a change of pace, I went with a bright yellow cardstock for the card base, and created a simple stenciled background using two Distress Oxide inks - Squeezed Lemonade and Mermaid Lagoon.  I used this fun stencil, which has lots of imperfect circles in different sizes.  I used an ink blending tool to add the first color, then moved the stencil so I'd have some overlap over the first color, therefore creating a third color where the overlap is.  

The kitty was colored with copic markers very simply using E50 and E13 for the fur and R20 for the tongue.  

The sentiment was stamped by masking the part of the sentiment I didn't want, adding the ink, removing the mask, then stamping on the cardstock.  I used my Misti stamping tool to make this process easier.  For a limited time, all the snarky stamps are on sale at So Suzy!!  Be sure to check them out here.
