Sorry to be overwhelming you with cards, but I needed to get my fix! 7 days w/o stamping and I am just not a happy camper :). Having the Virtual Stamping Night going on over at SCS is the perfect remedy for me. My first VSN a few years back it took me 2 hours (!) to make a card!! Yeah, the time limit is 45 minutes but hey, I was a novice to all this stuff. Today, I am happy to report my avg time has been 30 minutes with 10 for photoing, editing and uploading! TOTAL 40 minutes! HA! Under the time frame - yep I am happy. Oh! Do you want to see the cards -- hee hee
Card Patterns 116 on this card. Perfect to highlight this beautiful image from Mark's Finest Papers - American Made. I really do love this patriotic set! Challenge for VSN - color; kraft, aqua, green.
criss cross card. I used one of my new favorite color combos - gray, black and lime which lucky for me Color Throwdown just happens to be using these colors for a challenge!. Gina K Designs has come out with a gorgeous lime colored paper! So bright and pretty! I also used GKD's stamp set Bring the Bling. I have been waiting for some liquid pearls to try with this set. Oh WOW is this so fun with the set and pearls~ I will be using this mixture alot! Check it out~
Is that gorgeous or what! I used Silver Liquid Pearls and I am impressed! I have never used this product before~
and here is what a cc card looks like when "opened"
Last but not least (there are 7+ more challenges to do! I just wanted to get some in before my blog posts)
This VSN was to CASE a fellow stamper - well, my Color Challenge Teammate Joanne Travis over at SleepyinSeattle, made Queen for the Day! Yep, pretty exciting for Joanne, and perfect for me - I got 2 challenges done with 1 card!
I used Verve's sets Happy Days and One Person. I really like how these stamps stamp - so crisp and precise.
I hope this loads today - I might have missed the cut off. Thanks for stopping by~
