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...

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

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
