Be Naughty

Hi, there! I recently won the P is for Profanity challenge over at Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers, and as my prize I get a guest gig on their blog. Guess what this week's theme is?

I love it! I knew immediately which stamp set I'd use! I made this:

Yay, Stella!!!!! She is a woman of fine attitude. I'd be her friend if she were real.

I had such fun making this card. I played around with the "night sky" by inking up the white panel with Shaded Lilac, Stormy Sky, and Chipped Sapphire. After a few false starts with masking, I gave up and colored right over Stella. The Stella you see here was stamped separately, colored, fussy-cut, and then glued over the stamped Stella. It was the only way.

Then I went to town with details. Here's a close-up of Stella:

(Those bits of white showing on the top of her sled? I declare them to be snow.)

Sorry for the blur, but photography is not my strong suit. :( She is wearing blue glittery eye shadow, has Glossy Accented glasses, and her hat trim is covered with white flock. By the way, I love saying that word in the presence of non-stampers.

Also, the edge of her sled is silvery and glittery, and the whole sled was covered with Glossy Accents:

It took a while to dry, and the card is pretty hefty, too. There's also flocking under her sled for snow, and it hides the silvery glittery sled ... thing. That thing at the bottom. The glider?

ANYway, this was fun! Thanks to the gals at Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers for selecting my profane card and allowing me the chance to use my naughty Stella stamp set. :)

Thanks for stopping by!

Stuff I used: Totally Stampalicious (no longer in business) Stella set (closest digital image I could find at the Bugaboo shop), and the following:


  1. I love Stella, too! I just wish she lived closer to me so she could come over more. Your sky turned out great, along with all the other fab details of your card. Thanks for being our fantastic Guest Designing Queen!

  2. Oh, this card is so Leslie! I can tell you had fun making this one. Great job!

  3. HA! I love that she is wearing glittery BLUE eye shadow!!! That Stella...I think she and our Edna are long lost sisters!
    Thanks for rocking the challenge and joining the sisterhood as our Queen this week!

  4. Love it! The sky is lovely and Stella looks great

  5. Stella is awesome! Love the snow on the sleigh and the expression on her face is priceless. The background is lovely.

  6. Cute, cute card and love the way she seems to be scooting over the snowbanks! Great background too. Big congrats on the win and guest spot!

  7. I adore Stella! She's so fabulously snarky. Love the scene you've created too. xxD

  8. Thank YOU, Leslie, for being our Queen this week! Stella looks awesome, and so does your perfectly inked night sky. (I think they're called runners...)

  9. Hee hee! Stella and Edna certainly would be best buds, I'm sure of it. Great card with all the details. N for naughty. That's a real winner.

  11. Love your inky sky, and the card is a hoot! Great job on the coloring...especially that glittery blue eyeshadow...takes me back to the 7th grade.

  12. I love Stella, the queen of snark! Great card! Thanks for being our awesome queen at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers!

  13. Me too I want to be friends with Stella. I guess the next best thing is that we can attempt to BECOME Stella? :) The details you added are just superb - you know I loves me some gloss!


I'd love to hear what you really think! :-)
