Snarky Cards?

I have a customer who asked me to make her a set of "snarky cards".  I had to really think about how to do this because CTMH does not make "snarky stamps" we have the pun fun stamps but this client wanted something a little different.

After thinking it over all day and doing some research I found some stamps outside CTMH that was more what this client was looking for.  My challenge was to use CTMH papers and cardstock with Contraband "snarky stamps"

Once again I found that Pinterest, blogs, and my reference books came to the rescue design wise.

Wanna see?

Sip Faced:

The original design came from Jeanette Lyton's personal blog Color Me Monday: I Love The Winter Weather December 27, 2010

Jeanette's design used a winter snowman stamp but the colors are the same. 

Change Is A Good Thing:

The original design for this card came from Wendy Johnson and it was published in the Paper Crafts Magazine: Best of Stamp It! Cards

I changed the colors and images, embossing folder, but the bones of the cards are just as Wendy Johnson designed it.  It is such a fun card design that I knew it would work well with this snarky card. 

Maybe stepping out of my comfort zone is not a bad thing once in a while.
