Mini VSN This Weekend

This was Mini VSN Weekend, and it was a blast! A new challenge was posted each hour, beginning on Saturday at 5:00 pm. Participants had 45 minutes to make their creations. Because I am part of the VSN hostess team, I had an opportunity to play early. Here are a few of my Mini VSN creations.

This challenge from hostess Kim (Nutsymuhl), was to create a card using paper scraps. No shortage of scraps here!

Stamps: Image and sentiment from Hambo Stamps
Paper: Cool Carribean, PTI Vintage Cream, Bazille textured cardstock in olive, Basic Grey Stella Ruby Collection
Ink: Ranger Ink's Walnut Stain, Copics (BOO, YG95)
Accessories: mini brads, Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder

Here's my card for "The Understudy" Mini VSN challenge. The challenge was to use lots of layers (at least five) on your card. I happen to love layers, so this was really fun for me!

Stamps: Hullabaloo from Unity Stamps
Paper: PTI Ocean Tides, PTI Vintage Cream, Tangerine Tango, Haiku Collection DSP
Ink: Tangerine Tango
Accessories: mini brads

I made this chipboard frame for my newborn neice, Samantha, and the mini VSN challenge called "Frame Your Star". I'm going to put a magnet on the back and put it on my fridge!

Stamps: None
Paper: Groovy Guava, Certainly Celery, DCWV Baby Girl Collection
Ink: None
Accessories: medium weight chipboard coasters, Nestabilities square and scallop square die cuts, Cuttlebug fancy edge and flower die cuts
Here is my card for the challenge called "All That Jazz". The challenge was to make a card inspired by the 1920's. This was a tough one for me! My fringe is handmade. Ouch! Hehe. I used SC183 for my layout.

Stamps: image and sentiment by The Cat's Pajamas
Paper: Elegant Eggplant, Lovely Lilac, Almost Amethyst, PTI Vintage Cream
Ink: Palette Noir Hybrid, Copic Sketch Markers (BV08, B79, B63, BV02, V17)
Accessories: key tag punch, Martha Stewart pearls

This challenge was to make an accordian card. I've never made one of these before, but it was a lot easier than I anticipated.

Stamps: Baroque Motifs, Short and Sweet
Paper: Tangerine Tango, Old Olive, Haiku DSP, PTI Vintage Cream
Ink: Ranger Ink's Walnut Stain, Old Olive, So Saffron
Accessories: Old Olive mini brads, sheer olive ribbon, Nestabilities square and square scallop die cuts
