Virtual Stamping fun!

It's another Virtual Stamping Weekend at Splitcoaststampers.  Challenges were posted all evening tonight, and will be posted from 12:00-10:00 PM tomorrow around the theme "On Cloud Nine"! 
Carole (aka fibrejunky) had a fun challenge tonight.  She said that Christmas puts her on "cloud nine"...so her challenge was to make a Christmas card using NO red or green!


I chose PTI shades of Sweet Blush, Vintage Cream, and Kraft...and added a little Fresh Ink in "honey" for the gingerbread man.  It really is fun to try a Christmas card in non-traditional colors.  I can always do without green, but no RED!  That's hard for me!  Used Guide Lines 2 to make my background, and the gingerbread man from Holiday Button Bits.

Also played Kimme's "The Touch, the feel...of Clouds" challenge...to use something soft on a card.  I chose white "Fun Flock" by Stampendous...


Used the sheep from one of my favorite sets of all times "Primitive Beginnings" by Lesley Langdon for Cornish Heritage Farms.  Made the snow with the D'Vine Swirls Cuttlebug embossing folder.  The starbursts at the top are from Pink Persimmon's new set, Merry Christmas Tree.  Sentiment is from PTI's Believe set.

Come join the fun this weekend at the Virtual Stamping Night thread at SCS.  You can participate in one or all of the challenges...just upload your creations by Monday November 15 and you could be eligible to be chosen for the VSN Honors Gallery!

awesome, awesome card, Kelly...I especially love the Peace on Earth one. In fact, I do believe I bought that sheep several years ago, just because of seeing all the wonderful cards you made with it!!! It is still in pristine condition in my studio...I may well have to case this!!!

I love VSN, too....I think I need to schedule time off around the VSN's...I hate to be rushed....
