Virtual Stamp Night...

this weekend was VSN on SCS.  There was over 20 hours worth of stamping challenges and fun!  I was only able to find the time to finish 3 challenges, but I liked how they turned out.  For those of you who don't know, along with having to follow a certain criteria for the card, you also have a 45 minute time limit.  The time limit was tough!  I worked on most of my cards while Aurora was awake and of course was constantly interrupted.  I also have never given myself a time limit to create before and was rushing at the end of my Alice in Wonderland card.  I want to go back and edit it a bit now.  I have already taken off the Cheshire Cat because I didn't think he fit well with all the other NON Disney stamps. (I don't have a picture of the card with him removed, but use your imagination and let me know what you think) The Wonderland card was for the "Your My Obsession" challenge.

The next card I made was Clover.  The challenge was "One True Love", to make a monochromatic card.  I think this one turned out really well, and yes those are real 4 leaf clovers that my mother in law found and dried.  She will be getting them back on this card for her birthday, St. Patrick's Day.

My last challenge to complete was "Wee bit of Love".  On this challenges you were supposed to use three or more inchies.  Inchies are 1x1 inch squares that you stamp on/decorate/etc.  These little Unity cupcakes fit perfectly and turned out to be a great match.  I have never used inchies before, so it was fun to try something new.

There were SOOOO many great cards made by the ladies on SCS that I don't envy the judges who have to pick winners.  If you would like to catch a peek, go to THIS THREAD!  Kris had a great idea to have everyone post their favorite card there, instead of trying to view every single card.  (If you have the time, there is tons of inspiration to be seen)
