May VSN Challenges A - E

It's Virtual Stamp Night over on Splitcoast Stampers again this weekend (bad timing really though as we picked our kitten up on Friday and all I want to do is play with her, but I have been crafting whilst she's been asleep). There were 5 challenges on Friday night, which I did on Saturday morning/afternoon as they start at 11pm our time and I was just too shattered to start crafting at that time of night :P

Challenge A was to use aqua, light green and kraft. This card is also for Papertake Weekly's Bloom and Grow challenge to use flowers and Mojo #191 for the sketch.


Stamps: Friends Til The End from PTI

Papers: Aqua Mist, Stampers Select White both from PTI, Pear Pizzazz, Bella Bleu DSP (retired) both from SU

Inks: Crumb Cake, Pear Pizzazz both from SU, Memento Tuxedo Black, Copics

Accessories: Aqua Mist Grosgrsan Ribbon, Linen Impressions Plate both from PTI, Card Candy from Craftworks Cards

Challenge B was to hide something, so I made a flower pot card with a hidden greeting inside! I used the colours from Totally Hues #7 to use Sweet Blush, Lemon Tart, Berry Sorbet and Spring Moss - I did have to add some Creamy Caramel for my pot though! This is the flower pot with the message hidden...

And this is the message revealed...


Stamps: Flower Garden Sentiments from PTI

Papers: Creamy Caramel (retired) from SU, Spring Moss, Lemon Tart, Berry Sorbet, Sweet Blush, Stampers Select White all from PTI

Inks: Creamy Caramel (retired) from SU, Berry Sorbet from PTI

Accessories: Beautiful Blooms Dies #1, Delightful Dahlias Dies, Berry Sorbet Buttons, Lemon Tart Buttons, Sweet Blush Buttons, Linen Impressions Plate all from PTI, Lemon Yellow Bakers Twine from the Ribbon Reel, SCallop Trim Border Punch from SU

Challenge C was to use 3 R's on a project. I kind of cheated a bit and used the colour names for my cardstock/ink as part of my Rs! (I did have ribbon and roses as well though!) I also used SC333 and CC323 to use Rich Razzleberry, Regal Rose and Very Vanilla.


Stamps: Bella Blossoms from SU, Mega Mixed Messages from PTI

Papers: Regal Rose, Very Vanilla, Rich Razzleberry cs and DSP from Brights stack

Inks: Regal Rose, Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive

Accessories: Fairytale Ribbons (retired) from SU

Challenge D was to make a criss-cross card. I haven't done one of these for absolutely ages! This one is also for Just Add Ink's Challenge #68 to use Pear Pizzazz, Baja Breeze, Perfect Plum and White and for Stampin' Royalty's Challenge #72 to use birds.


Stamps: Little Bitty Bird, Signature Series: Dressform both from PTI

Papers: Pear Pizzazz, Baja Breeze, Perfect Plum DSP (retired) all from SU, Stampers Select White from PTI

Inks: Pear Pizzazz from SU, Memento Tuxedo Black, Copics

Accessories: Baja Breeze Ribbon (retired), Scallop Trim Border Punch both from SU

Challenge E was to use boat or beach images. I'm really limited on these so decided to use my Surfer Ian and do the Farm Fresh Summer Challenge as well. I used the colours from Play Date Cafe's Challenge #82 to use mid brown, light blue and yellow and Viva La Verve's Sketch #4 for May. I made the whole card up before I dug out my stamps. I couldn't find Surfer Ian anywhere! You know why?! Coz I don't actually have him - I have Skateboarder Ian instead! I was so convinced I had him, so had to drop the FFF challenge and use my Sporty Billy stamps instead!


Stamps: Sporty Billy, Lily At The Beach both from Pink Cat Studio

Papers: Soft Suede, Bashful Blue, So Saffron DSP (retired), Elegant Soiree DSP all from SU

Inks: Bashful Blue, Soft Suede both from SU, Memento Tuxedo Black, Copics

Accessories: Photo Corners Punch from SU, Oval Nestabilities, Cloud dies (used as a mask), Double Ended Banner Die, Rick Rack XL Die all from PTI
