Crafty Critter VSD Challenge #5

This weekend was my virtual scrap event, hosted by my blogging group, The Crafty Critters.  Instead of just one day, we decided to hold this on both Saturday and Sunday so all the members of our group could participate.  There were five different challenges:

VSD Challenge # 5...

This is a challenge with a twist, a recipe challenge!
  1. Use 1 image.
  2. Use 2 ribbons.
  3. Use 3 different layers, at least  And the twist...use something blue on your card. It doesn't matter what it is, or how much/little, just as long as some blue is on your card.   Here's mine:
The "Barn Swallow" stamp is from Sugar Creek Hollow.  My design paper is Basic Grey "Wisteria" and the card stock is from Stampin Up. 

VSD #3 - Challenge #4 - Greeting Farm

I'm pretty sure all of us have a Greeting Farm images. If you DO NOT then please use any image you would like. From what I have observed I think most of us are good to go.
1. Use the colors pink and blue on your card. You can use other colors as accents but I want pink and blue to be your main colors.
2. Second use SCS sketch SC265. Make sure you upload your card (or scrapbook page) to your blog and to your SCS gallery.
3. Use a Greeting Farm image.                Here's my entry:

This is "Ruby" from The Greeting Farm.  I used "Bo Bunny" design paper, Raffia lace and Nellie Snellen punched flowers with dew drop centers.  I used Copic markers to color.

VSD Challenge #3
Hi Ladies!!!! I hope everyone is getting scrappy today...I know I am:) A month or so ago I made a photo card for one of my DT's and I really enjoyed it. I can send it to someone in my family and they can put it in a frame or display it on a stand.

So here is my challenge:
~make a card with a photo on it
~use doodling on the photo or card or both... - Here's my entry, my grandchildren, Olivia, Caleb, Sophia & Joshua

I made my photo card a "tent card" so you could sit on a table.  I used "Bo Bunny" design paper and Stampin Up card stock.  

VSD #3 Challenge #2

Ok.. I know a lot of you are going to hate me.. but I'm challenging you to make a scrapbook page. I'm pretty sure just about everyone scraps... (even though some of you haven't in years!) and if you don't.. then adapt this to a card.

Please use the following sketch.  Please make sure you use a stamp on your layout.   And since our theme is spring, please use the colours green and yellow somewhere on your layout... stamp, paper, embellishments.. etc...

I am also challenging you to enter your project into a challenge blog... You can enter it at the Scrap and Stamp Saturday blog (that's where the sketch is from) and/or wherever you choose.

VSD 3 Challenge #1 - Paradise Inspiration

Our VSD #3 theme is Spring.  It's an inspiration themed challenge with a recipe to go along with it.
Create a card, page, or 3D project designed around this picture:

I would like you to design your project around this photo. Then, follow a few little requirements (recipe):

~ Only 1 embellishment
~ somewhere on your card use a crimper. If you don't have one, manually get the look of crimped paper/card stock by accordion folding it, then laying it out on your project.
~ Last but not least....NO COLORING! GASP!!!!!! I know right? But, isn't that why it's called a challenge? Get out all those solid stamps and colorful ink pads. Or, just use a sentiment as your main focus. It's totally up to you, but you can't color your image.

Here's my entry - no coloring!  I used Stampin up "Stipple Shells", distress inks to color and "Sands o Time" design paper from The Angel Company.  

My first is last and my last is first, now doesn't that make perfect sense?  These were just easier to copy and paste this way (whoo! was I tired!!!).

Thanks for visiting!
