VSN Honours!!

Well, after participating in VSN, having a wonderful time with my friend Jana in Germany over the weekend stamping away, I had one extra treat!

I was selected for VSN honours!!! Totally blown away by this! Thank you to Kim (nutsymuhl) and Katherine (beadfreak22) who were the hostesses for the challenge.

The challenge was to make a grid like card using only the supplies on our table 'right now'. What a fun challenge! By the end of VSN pratically everything I had brought with me, and my friends scrap drawer was on the table. It was a bit of a streatch to get enough squares out of the right colors of scrap papers, but I found enough in the scrap bin!


I cut small squares out of patterend paper scraps from the Enchante patteren paper (retired) from SU! I then matted onto larger CS squares. Took a large pice of white CS and sponged with mellow moss and always artachoke inks, then matted onto mellow moss and finally so saffron CS. Stamped the saying from Occasional Greetings after coloring with markers, matted on some patterned paper and some perfect plum CS.

Tied some mellow moss taffeta ribbon around, added in some scraps of lavender organdy ribbon, and finally attached the matted saying.


Hope you enjoy!

Hi Karin,

This card is gorgeous as are your other creations. I came via your site from the stampin for real site, just to let you know your link on that site doesn't work, it shouldn't say blogger it should say blogspot.com, just thought I would let you know, hope you don't mind.
