VSN cards

While I was waiting for my hubby to come home on Saturday I had some time to play the Virtual Stamping Night Challenges over on SCS.

Here's one I did for the challenge, Little Black Dress. The object of this challenge was to use black cardstock for the focal image. Here I decided to use 4 focal images. I stamped the flowers from Big Flowers in Whisper White on Basic Black and embossed them with Whisper White EP. I punched them out with the 1 3/8" Circle Punch. I adhered them to a square piece of Whisper White cardstock with Stampin' Dimensionals. I stamped my sentiment on the card base and embossed it with Whisper White EP and added some Black Gingham Ribbon around my cardbase. I then added my focal image to my card base. Tah-dah!!!! I love how the flowers pop in white!



Another one of the challenges was to make a Criss Cross Card. I've only made one other of these and it was fun, so I thought I'd give it another go. This one is not quite as fancy as the first one I made, but there is a time limit for the challenges, so that played a factor.

Recipe
Stamps: Time Well Spent
Ink: Jet Black StazOn, Orchid Opulence, Sage Shadow, Barely Banana
Paper: Whisper White, Orchid Opulence, Sage Shadow, Barely Banana
Accessories: Round Tab Punch, Blender Pens, 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon, Crop-a-dile, 1", 1 1/4" & 1 3/8" Circle Punches

I worked on a few other challenges, but if you want to see them you'll have to check them out in my SCS gallery. My Miss You Tag card uses up some scraps from the scrapbooking class.


Also, I was going to upload a video, but since the hubby was home this weekend he was messing with the computer and updated my video editing software, so I wasn't able to download and edit video. Hopefully I'll be able to some time this week, but I have to work the next few days and was hoping to finish painting the hallway, so we'll see.

Your black and white card is STRIKING!!! And I like the corset/band on your criss/cross card!

These are both really cute but I do admit I LOVE the black and white one. I love Big Flowers but have managed to convince myself I don't need them because I have Big and Little Pieces. This card makes me think I need Big and Little Flowers!
