SHOPPING OUR STASH #244 - Cuckoo for You

Hello and good morning crafty peeps! This week at SHOPPING OUR STASH, we are going cuckoo! LOL! That is, we want to see clocks on your card or project! Here's what I came up with:

 Here's the inside:

I pulled out a stamp set I've had for 3 years, and used two of the stamps for the first time on this card: the cuckoo clock and the sentiment. Also, I created the background paper with a stamp I won 3 years ago from a Unity FWF challenge. That also saw ink for the first time. On the inside, I added another sentiment (with a bit of snark!) to finish my card.

Now it's your turn. Break out your stamps/dies/embossing folders/papers with a clock theme and have fun making something fun with them! Just link up at Shopping Our Stash so we can admire your creative genius! While there, please check out what my teammies created and leave them some bloggy love! Thanks for visiting, and I hope you have a great day!

  1. how perfect that you actually own a cuckoo clock stamp!!! this is fabulous... obviously...

  2. That was my thought too, wow someone does have a cuckoo clock stamp. I had to surf pinterest. This is awesome!!! love the inside sentiment too. and I guess your stamps are happy to get inked.

  3. Hey, Chris, I agree with Lauren, it is super cool that you actually owned a cuckoo clock stamp, I though I had one and then after an hour of searching, gave up. I really like the colors and composition on this project. Great card and very nicely crafted

  4. That cuckoo stamp is fabulous and love how you've done your background. Very creative card.

  5. I knew that with that old timey cuckoo clock on the outside that there would be some snark on the inside! Haha! Super cute, Chris!

  6. Love that cuckoo clock and that sentiment!!

  7. Brilliant card Chris, love that the papers and image are so perfectly co-ordinated and the colours are beautiful too! Wishing you a Happy Easter :) Donna ♥ x

adding pinterest script 3. Changing the Position of the Pin it! button The cool thing about this code is that you have some freedom over where the Pinterest button for Blogger will go over the image. Take a look at the code that you just copied and pasted into the HTML for the word 'center'.
