VSN Rundown

I didn't get to do as much as I had hope this VSN but I did get to do quite a bit. This is what I did get to do...

1 - Janet aka jknorp challenged us to "Sketch a Little Love". She wanted us to use a sketch and use one big circle and one big heart.
Stamps: Eat Cake Graphics - Main Squeeze, Family Nuts (not sure who makes this); Ink: Palette Noir, Versafine Black; Paper: Basic Grey Bittersweet, PTI Sweet Blush, GA Pacific White; Other: Shaker Box, Beads, clear eP, Copics, Nesties, SU ribbon, fake baubles
What was cool about this was I got to cheat on my heart because not only did I get to use up some on my OLD supplies but it was a premade heart....gotta love that.
2 - Christi Snow aka snowchris was "For the Love of Chocolate". She wanted us to chose our favorite chocolate (white, milk or dark) then from there we had to use the color combo for that chocolate. I chose milk chocolate because for me it was the closest to being my favorite.

Stamps: All CHF - Silhouette Blooms I, Bloom With Abandon, Pretty Pattern Backgrounder; Ink: SU Chocolate Chip, Real Red; Paper: Almost Amethyst, Archiver's Red & Brown, MM's Tweed; Other: SU Elegant Eggplant, Rose Red markers, Michael's ribbon, baubles, Tim Holtz Distresser
3- Paula Laird aka mrslaird challenged us to "New Love". This was to use things that we only purchased in the last two months, do you have any idea how hard it is to remember this?
Stamps: My Cute Stamps - Night Owl; Ink: SU Chocolate Chip, Palette Charcoal; Paper: Archiver's Brown, GA Pacific White; Other: Copics, Shimmerz, Glitter Pen, MS Butterfly Punch
BTW, this is not one of the favorite cards I made.
4- Katherine aka beadfreak22 made us work in one color or monochromatically. I didn't think this would be hard, but apparently this was for me.
Stamps: Rubber Romance - Tuscan Hillside; Ink: SU Bordering Blue; Paper: Archiver's Beige, Deja Views Butcher Block; Other: Misc Ribbon, Horizontal Slot Punch
5- Then Kathy aka kkrab5 challenged us to "Two Hearts Beat As One". Where we did a split negative. I really like doing these but never remember to do them.
Stamps: All by Unity Stamp Co - Dream Tree, Love Birdies; Ink: SU Cranberry Crisp, Rose Red; Paper: Basic Grey Bittersweet, PTI Sweet Blush; Other: Michael's Ribbon
6- Christy S then had us do "As You Wish" where we were to be inspired by the movie The Princess Bride. I made mine based on the scene where they are sailing through the eel infested waters and Inigo keeps telling Vezzini that they are being followed and he keeps saying Inconceivable!!
Stamps: The Greeting Farm - Best Mates; Ink: Palette Noir, Versafine Black, SU Not Quite Navy; Paper: GA Pacific White, Archiver's Blue, Bazzill Blue, Misc DP; Other: Copics, American Crafts Ribbon, Nesties, Corner Rounder Punch, clear eP
7- Sarah aka superglew used the song "These Are a Few of My Favorite Things" from the Sound of Music to inspire us to make our next project.
Stamps: ATS Wintertime Fun, Unity Stamp Co - Little Reminders Dec KOM; Ink: Palette Charcoal, Versafine Black; Paper: Walmart Paper Pack, GA Pacific White, Bazzill Blue; Other: Brad, Copics, Offray ribbon, DMC thread, Liquid Applique, AI Glitter
8- Denise aka Resqbarbie next had us making "A Wee Bit O' Love". This involved making inchies. Now I have to admite that I have never made inchies before and I'm not sure that ever will again. They're just not my bag baby! Although I did get to break out my new Whiff of Joy stamps.
Stamps: WOJ Spring Kit, Unity Stamp Co - Beauty Flow Through; Ink: Palette Charcoal, Versamark; Paper: GA Pacific White, SEI, Misc DP & Black; Other: MM Ribbon, white eP, Copics
9- "Love Starts With L" was Robyn O challenge which is where everything we used on our card in someway had to start with the letter L. Talk about thinking outside of the box in one way or the other.
Stamps: Rubber Romance - Lulu; Paper: Lollipop line by Basic Grey; Copics: Lipstick Red, Lettuce Green; Other: Burgandy Lace, Lavendar Lace, Label 1 Nesties
10- Then my girlie Taylor aka stagccva wanted us to make a Joy Fold Card. Can't say I've one of these before either. However, this was cool and I plan on making one again.
Stamps: Out on a Limb - PTI; Ink: SU Chocolate Chip, Cranberry Crisp, Palette Noir; Paper: All SEI Oasis; Other: AI Glitter, Anchor, brad
11- Then my girly girl Kim aka nutsymuhl did an "Ode to Jimmi" where we could not use any red, pink, white or hearts to make a love card.
Stamps: SU I swear I don't remember what set this is from; Ink: SU Chocolate Chip, Not Quite Navy; Paper: Archiver's Kraft, Basic Grey - Euphoria; Other: Foof a la Buttons, Twine, Fastenators, Circle Punch, Primas, Misc Jewel
12- Then my other favorite girl Lee aka LuvLee wanted all "Tickle Your Fancy"ed up by using feathers on our cards...even if we're allergic.
Stamps: Unity Stamp Co - Hey Chick; Ink: Charcoal Palette, Versafine Black; Paper: Archiver's Beige & Yellow, K&Co Neopolitian, GA Pacific White; Other: Copics, Feathers, Nesties, Pearls, Bazzill Threaded Guide
I have no feathers in my house, or least not that I really know about (especially since I'm allergic to them). So this one was a real challenge for me. I do have a few down pillows or coats where I guess I could have pulled the feathers (I'm not going to tell you where I got these)
I would have done more but I had to get ready to drive to Pensacola for my Copic class. I hope to be able to write up about that tomorrow. I have so much to tell you about that. EEEKKK!!!
