VSN Saturday's Challenges

If you saw the card on this post for the VSN Friday's challenges, then these are the cards for Saturday's challenges. I haven't managed to do all of these ones yet, but will upload the rest tomorrow.

Challenge F was my card and a nice simple one to start the day - use flowers of any kind and description on a card. I used this card that I made for the Passion for Papertrey challenge last weekend.

Challenge G is to make 3D paper roses. I used Marlene's tutorial here on 3rd May on how to use the large flower from the Vintage Vogue set to make them. I also used the Stamp With Us sketch and Stampin' Royalty's Challenge #21 to use Rich Razzleberry, Pretty in Pink and Certainly Celery.

Challenge H is to make a bookmark or a card with a detachable bookmark. I have never made one of those cards so now seemed like a good time to do one! I also used CC93 to use Sage Shadow, Blush Blossom and Rose red for my colour combo and old Mojo sketch #95 for the layout of the front of the card.

Challenge I is a bit more complicated than the others. You had to must have one (or more) of the following:

**change in colors from left to right**
**change in images from left to right**
**change in texture from left to right**

AND one of the following:

**an embellishment (eyelet, button, ribbon, flower, etc.)**
**a sentiment**
**patterned paper**

I used my new Text Boxed set from PTI and thought I'd add an extra twist to this challenge by making the number of flowers on each panel increase from left to right as well :P I also used CC44 to use Taken With Teal, Yoyo Yellow and Rose Red.

Challenge J is to make a card with a shower curtain on it, which is why I haven't done that one yet. Not quite sure what to use to make my shower curtain. It might just have to be a thin piece of acetate. I'll have to see what I can find tomorrow.

Challenge K is to use watercolors and lots of brown colour. I used Papertake Weekly's Sketch #41 and CC55 to use Pink Passion, Pixie Pink, Close To Cocoa and Chocolate Chip.

Challenge L is to be inspired by the song or film of Singing In The Rain. I love the song and used my April Showers stamp as I think she looks like she's about to start singing any minute now LOL! I used CC36 to use Perfect Plum, Mellow Moss and Barely Banana and old Mojo #78 for the layout.

Challenge M is to use an element of water, e.g. rain, snowflake, sea, lake etc on your card. I used CC106 to use Really Rust, Brocade Blue and Morning Marigold, which I don't have so I substituted it for So Saffron instead. I got my layout from Mojo #73 as well.

Challenge N is to use the Misting With Markers technique, which I haven't done before so will get round to it tomorrow. I used Just Add Ink's color combo for challenge #19 to use Melon Mambo, Taken With Teal and Elegant Eggplant and a very old Mojo #4 for the layout.

Challenge O is to use the Baby Wipe technique. I used this technique on a thank you card I made for one of my workshop hostesses not so long ago so thought I would use that one again.

Challenge P is to use an old dusty, not been used for ages stamp set! I have a few of those :P so I pulled out my very first Stampin' Up hostess set and matching wheel, Spring Solitude. I also used CC53 to use Chocolate Chip, Bashful Blue and Certainly Celery and Mojo #90 for the layout.

So that's all my VSN challenges for this Virtual Stamp Night. It has been loads of fun hostessing again and there have been some beautiful cards in all the of the challenges' galleries.

All details for my cards can be found in my SCS gallery here.
