Tonight is the Mini version of Virtual Stamp Night...WooHoo!
I am a hostess for one of the challenges for the Main VSN next month, but I wanted to participate in tonight's challenges too. The first VSN Mini challenge asks us to use blue and sand. I opted for night of navy, so that I could also do this Colour Me...! challenge.
Sorry for the bad lighting... I am giving this card to my husband, so I had to take the picture myself. I am an awful photographer! LOL The card base is night of navy with a plain sahara sand layer added. I then dry embossed another layer of navy with this retired SU folder; it had a snowflake name, but it looks more like stars to me. Using a white gel pen and basic rhinestones, I highlighted some stars. The large sentiment is from Stampabilities. After stamping it on a sahara sand circle, I ran it through my Big Shot with the decorative dots folder. I think it looks like craters on the moon! The globe image is from SU's "The Open Sea," stamped on very vanilla. I trimmed it up to fit on the lower corner.
Next, I made a card with a more beachy theme, since Lee's challenge had a beachy inspiration photo. My card base is marina mist. I stamped images from "By the Seashore" in marina mist, sahara sand, and crisp cantaloupe on very vanilla. I added 2 layers of large scallop circles in vanilla and sand, sponging the edges. The greeting is from "Polka Dot Party." To coordinate with the sketch challenge from My Favorite Things, I added marina mist satin ribbon, and 3 punched out flowers with enamel dots.
I still need to make a card for the 2nd VSN Mini challenge, but I have until February 14th to upload. So do you! Hope you can participate!
Thanks for coming by!
