We're missing our peeps, right?

Petals of White


Virtual Stamp Night (on SCS) is always a lot of fun and it challenges the participants to step up their game, making more cards more quickly and trying new things. The past two days stampers have gathered (online, of course) to complete twenty challenges... and if one can't participate right then, it's okay. Playing catch up is allowed - well, for a short window of time.

I was one of those who couldn't participate in real time, but I'll try to do at least some of the challenges in a timely manner.

VSN - Florapalooza

This is the card I made for Challenge #3 (I'm not doing these in any particular order). 

Challenge Title: Petals of White
 - create cards with white flowers or petals -
Hostess: Lee


There is a one-hour time limit per card.
This card took me 25 minutes to make.

Ewe Are So Sweet!


I have determined that I have three hobbies - buying stamping/cardmaking supplies, organizing stamping/cardmaking supplies, and making cards. Can anyone else relate?

AND... sometimes it seems like I do more buying (insert embarrassed face) and organizing than actually making cards. I have stamp sets that have seen very little (if any) ink. So what's the solution? For one thing, I joined Barb's Challenge Your Stash group on SCS. We have a monthly theme, chosen by one of our members, and on the 28th of the month we show what we made for that theme... but we couldn't buy a single thing to make it. 

Not. a. problem. Have I mentioned I have a lot of stuff???

Barbara chose this month's theme - 


"March comes in like a lion, and goes out like a lamb."


The sky's the limit for how you interpret this theme: lions, lambs, wind, rain, spring flowers, anything that old adage makes you think of. Have fun with it!

This card features a Raisin Boat stamp set... because Saturdays are devoted to Victorine Originals/Raisin Boat on my blog. I love this cute little lamb, so it was not difficult to choose to use it. It's from the Raisin Boat Wild About Ewe, Honey! stamp set.

To make my card, I first smeared a bit of Acrylic paint onto white cardstock to create a hillside. I did this in one swift motion - kind of like a burst of March winds. 

Then I stamped the lamb and sentiment (after the paint had dried of course) and added some layers of DP and CS and then added three heart-shaped brads. It was super easy to make and fun, too.

I hope Barbara and Barb and the other CYS gals like it.
