VSN Challenges A, B & C

It's Virtual Stamp Night again over on Splitcoast Stampers and I just about managed to get all of the challenges done. This VSN's theme is Spring has Sprung, so lots of spring and Easter cards are coming up.

Challenge A was to make a card or project using sunny colours, so I combined this challenge with Friday Mash up's Challenge #49 to use green and yellow and/or make a basket or treat pouch. As Easter will be here shortly, I thought I would make a little Easter basket, ready to be filled with yummy treats.


Challenge B was to use a heart or the word love on your card or project. I used my Hearts Block embossing folder and my heart circle Nestabilities. I combined this one with Papertake Weekly's Anything Goes Challenge, SC375 for the sketch and CC365 to use Very Vanilla, Wild Wasabi and Blushing Bride and came up with this pretty little thing!


Challenge C was to go find something from the depths of your crafting supplies that you haven't seen or used in at least 6 months! I pulled out this patterned paper from My Mind's Eye that hasn't been touched and has been in a bag in my crafting area for oh I don't know how long! Way before Christmas I know that much. I combined this one with Cute Card Thursday's Challenge #207 for the sketch, Just Magnolia's Challenge #147 to use blue and white (although strictly speaking mine does have a fair bit of green in it as well!) and Free For All Challenge #107 to use an accordion fold, so I made a rosette instead of adding the usual paper roses to my Tilda card!


And that's all for this post folks! Thanks for stopping by. All my other VSN challenges are on the next few posts!
