Tuesday Tinkering in the Studio

Yep, I'm tinkering today (with Tinker, no less!). I didn't do a single crafty thing yesterday, it was just a bad day. Today is better! Thought I'd show you my cards from VSN Mini this weekend.

This card was created for the Darth Tater Challenge. I love this theme for VSN - Paper Chef! Based on the ever popular Food Network Iron Chef series. Our challenge was to use the colors found in a baked potato with a secret ingredient - paprika! Red (or paprika) was to be an accent color. It's getting warm here, so my first thought was watermelon, which led to a seed spitting contest, and summer birthday parties! House Mouse Happy Hopper seed spitter took center stage along with Gina K Design's Eclectic Summer Sayings happy birthday.

Ingredients: SU! PP, Bazzill CS, GKD Pure Luxury Chocolate Chip CS, SU! markers, sweet pea Flower Soft, Robin's Nest dew drops, Offray ribbon, Memento tuxedo black, and SU! kiwi kiss inks.

This cutie was created for the Herb 'n' Man challenge to make a masculine card using the color of herbs. I used the Card Positioning System sketch #121 for the layout. I plan to give this to my darling husband who has been working so hard on our garden. At the end of the season we will have a ton of veggies to put up, and I really appreciate having a husband who loves to grow things. So, a little thank you and some mad money should let him know I appreciate him!

Ingredients: Gardener Flopsey (MFT), Thank You (Gina K - Eclectic Summer Sayings), Memento tuxedo black and SU! kiwi kiss inks, Prismacolor pencils and baby oil, Basic grey PP, Bazzill CS, Fiskar's border punch, and SU! scalloped circle and inner circle punch.

Thanks for stopping by! Don't forget to scroll down to see the other things I've been working on lately.

Ta for now, ~ky
