A few VSN cards

It was VSN or Virtual Stamp Night this weekend over on Splitcoast Stampers, which I totally forgot about. I didn't have much time to do many of the challenges, but I did what I could, combining them with other challenges where possible, but I only managed to get 5 done in the end. Oh well nevermind.

Challenge B was to make a card with some summer toys on it. I went straight for my kites (I actually haven't played with one of these properly since I was a kid, but we made some in school a while ago for our own Indian Kite festival and the kids loved it. Was such fun running around on a very windy day trying to fly a kite!). I combined it with A Passion for Papertrey's Circles Challenge and my fave new combo of the summer - turquoise, yellow and grey. Keep seeing combo this around a lot and I love the brightness of it.


Recipe:

Stamps: Background Basics: Medallions, Up, Up & Away, Up, Up & Away Sentiments all from Papertrey Ink

Inks: Lemon Tart, Hawaiian Shores both from Papertrey Ink, Smoky Slate from Stampin' Up

Accessories: Lemon Tart Grosgrain Ribbon, Double Ended Banner Die both from Papertrey Ink, Circles Nestabilities, Lacey Nestabilties, Dew Drops

Challenge C was to use splashes of ink with a summer theme, so I used my markers and my spritzer to make a rainbow of colours. We get lots of rainbows in the summer here in the UK, only because we get so much darn rain during the so-called summer LOL

And Challenge D was to use red, white and blue, so I used my new Mosaic Madness stamp set and coordinating embossing folder to come up with this one.
