Virtual Stamp Night!!

The girls over on Splitcoast Stampers have an event called Virtual Stamp Night (VSN). There's usually a theme, and the challenges go with the theme. This quarter, the theme is Paper Chefs, and all the challenges revolve around food! YUM! This weekend's challenges were for snacks.

This challenge nearly did me in! It was all about food allergies. You had to pretend you were allergic to all kinds of ink - you couldn't use anything ink related. Boggles the mind, don't it!

This card uses Basic Grey PP and rub-ons, Bazzill cardstock and a little piece of Offray ribbon. The layout comes from Mojo Monday!

The next challenge was chip and dip (I'm getting so hungry!). We were asked to use a paint chip as part of our project. These images are from Unity, gold embossed (card), terracotta embossed (chip), with Basic Grey PP, Pebbles kraft CS, Bazzill dark brown CS, some quick sewing a splash of ribbon, and there ya have it! The paint chip is a removable bookmark!

The last one was an inspiration challenge. It's all about the popcorn! I loved this challenge because I got to make a card based on an old-time theatre. I mean, who doesn't luv a tub of theatre popcorn with a ton of butter! Mmmmm....drool....

Unity images, Creative Imaginations PP, Bazzill CS, and gold embossing powder. Oh - the stamps on the circles are from Cat's Pajamas, and I intentionally "messed up" the embossing to give it an old, worn feel. Same with the Robin's Nest dew drop stage lights.

So - that's what I got done this weekend. I have another project or two for you tomorrow, so make sure you come back and see!

Ta for now, ~ky

Welcome to the Bunny Nest! I host rescued animals in a small in-home setting. Currently, I host 3 bunnies and 2 kitties. These animals will be socialized and housed for the entirety of their lives in my home. They inspire my crafts, and I use any proceeds to pay for their needs. Thanks for visiting!
