My first card is for VSN#1 - to use the colours of a partcipating country's flag on your project. I chose Estonia's colours for no other reason than I liked them. It's also for Sweet Stamping's Challenge #11 to use scallops and the Sketch Challenge #265 on SCS too. This is a Stampin' Up Only card as well (SUO). All of these products for this card can be purchased through me!!
Stamps: A Beautiful Thing, Vintage Labels
Papers: Basic Black, Whisper Whiste, Bashful Blue DSP
Inks: Basic Black, Bashful Blue
Accessories: Black striped grosgrain ribbon, Scalloped circle punch
VSN#2 was to use snow on a card. I also combined this one with Papertake's Weekly Sketch Challenge #33 and Farm Fresh Friday's challenge to use monochromatics on your card. I used blues as they were perfect colours for this snow challenge. I masked off the wheels on my Skateboarding Ian to make him snowboard instead and it worked!

Papers: Bashful Blue, Whisper White, Navy pearlescet paper, Non SU white card
Inks: Bashful Blue, Night of Navy, Memento Tuxedo Black, Copic Ciaos

VSN#3 was to use red, white and wool! I never use wool for anything so I had to "borrow" some from school for this challenge. I combined it with Our Creative Corner's Sketch Challenge as well. I'm not a particular fan of hearts so all my Valentine inspired challenge cards will be using these 2 SU stamp sets!
Stamps: Simply Said, Darling Dots
Papers: Whisper White, Real Red cs and Dp from a retired hostess pack
Inks: Basic Black, Real Red
Accessories: Red wool, red heart gems
VSN#4 was to use the chalkboard technique. I love this technique and used it here on a previous Inspiring Inkin' challenge. I also used Mercy's Sketch #58 and Color Throwdown's #77 for the combo.
Stamps: Live Your Dream
Papers: Elegant Eggplant, Certainly Celery, Baja Breeze DSP, Basic Black
Inks: Whisper White craft ink, Stampin' Pastels
Accessories: Elegant Eggplant grosgrain ribbon, Fleur de Lis Borderabilities, Blue Zoomz
VSN#5 was to use the letter S, the Kissing technique, white as the only neutral and pink. I used Truly Scrumptious' Sketch #24, CC#255 on SCS and it is also for A Passion for Papertrey's Nature Challenge. Phew!!
Stamps: Everyday Classics, Signature Greetings, Polka Dot Basics, Wishing You all from Papertrey Ink
Papers: Pretty in Pink cs and DP from retired hostess pack, Melon Mambo DP, Blush Blossom, Whisper White
Inks: Pretty in Pink, Melon Mambo, White gel pen

VSN#6 was to use the spotlighting technique. I used the colours from Stacey's Curtain Call #14 as well and I love these ones together.

And that was all the VSN challenges done so I started on some others! This first one is for Carol's Sketch Fun #19 and SCS CC242 (an old colour combo I missed). It's those same 2 heart stamps again LOL
Stamps: Simply Said, Darling Dots
Papers: Kraft, Basic Black, Whisper White, Melon Mambo cs and DP, Groom DSP

My next one is for Mojo#123 and another old colour combo on SCS, CC179. I'm slowly catching up with all the old colour challenges that I've missed but it will take me a while. I've done all the sketch challenges and am now working through the colour and featured stamper ones. This colour combo is gorgeous though! How on earth did I miss it when it came out??!! I also attempted to use my blender pens again on this card - not too bad a job! I'm slowly getting there with them!
Stamps: Floral Symphony and Circular Sayings from Verve
Papers: Taken With Teal, Elegant Eggplant, Old Olive DSP
Inks: Taken With Teal, Elegant Eggplant, Old Olive
Accessories: Elegant Eggplant grosgrain ribbon, Circle Nestabilities, purple buttons from stash.
And my final card of the weekend was another triple challenge: CC247 on SCS, Our Creative Corner's Music Challenge and Just Us Girls#18 to create a pennant banner. I was going to miss out the JUGS challenge as I don't do pennant banners, but then I saw one of the other ladies had done a mini one on a card and knew I had to copy her idea! It goes perfectly with this guitarist stamp as well.
Stamps: Extreme Guitar, Swirling Stars wheel
Papers: basic Black, Very Vanilla, Soft Suede
Inks: Basic Black, Soft Suede
Accessories: Sizzix Chocolatey Goodness alphabet
Phew! that's all my cards for this weekend. I'll be back during the week with another new project for you all. Enjoy!!
