VSN Challenges

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
 I used the sketch from 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.

This VSN - make a 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~
