say what??!

this week's challenge at shopping our stash is all talk... by which we mean... we want to see a speech bubble on your card, or more than one, if you prefer. possibly even-- if you're *ME*-- an entire card covered in speech bubbles:

scribbly birds stamp set by dina wakley/ranger ink; sentiment: unity stamps; tiny hearts: all night media;
patterned paper: amy tangerine/american crafts + vintage sheet music; dark brown cardstock: bazzill;
ink: ranger archival; adhesives: elmers brand gluetape, 

i had a few different ideas for using dina wakley's scribbly birds, but my choice was clear once i found the amy tangerine paper with all the speech bubbles to use as a background. after that i did a bit of stamping, a bit of paper piecing and some pretty subdued matting and called it a day.

need additional speech bubble inspiration? the SOS design team is here for you, darlings, or rather there for you... at shopping our stash, that is! ♥


  1. super cute bird and well pieced. love the background, super card!!

  2. Love your mixy-matchy look, as always! And the bold black of the bird looks great with the sheet music... cheers!

  3. That paper is so cool!!!I love how you used it for this challenge. Your card rocks!

  4. I love the subtleness of your designs. I need to get the scribbly birds as soon as my craft supply buying diet is over. Beautiful work, Lauren!

  5. I love this, the background papers are superb. Cx
