OWH VCMP Challenge 9 10 11 12 13 15 16 17 18

Challenge 9 in the OWH VCMP is to make a masculine card with a classic image or classic car.  This is as close as I could come.  Stamp by SU.

Challenge 10 is to use at least 3 different textures.  I used dry embossing folder.  Popped up the die cut (stamp and matching die from Our Daily Bread Grunge Cross), and satin ribbon. And layers.

Challenge 11 was transportation.  I wish I was out on the water! This is a stencil from dreamweavers. I bought it from Tesslers Stamps at Scrapbook Expo in Dulles VA.

 Challenge 12 is a Red, White and Blue Holiday Card.

Challenge 13 was to use the OWH weekly sketch.  Open Sea Stamps from SU.

Challenge 15 was to make a Teen card.  Perhaps a grunge theme.  My teens love coffee so I thought this would work.  And that is the type of mess they make!

 Challenge 16 was to make a love card with a furry friend.  I just got this new Happy Hopper stamp and the words from Stampendous. Picked a bunch up at my LSS Photoscraps in Eldersburg, MD.

Challenge 17 was to make a holiday card using inchies and Sketch 175.  I think this stamp set is from Recollections.

 Challenge 18 was to use Faux something.  I tried the faux fur - image from Art Impressions that I bought at my LSS The Queens Ink in Savage, MD.  After coloring with copic C1 C3 C5, I used a terry cloth towel with blender solution to create the fur texture.


OWH VCMP Challenge 7 Things with Wings and 8 Miss U

Challenge 8 is also the July Our Daily Bread Challenge. 
ODB is a wonderful company that donates $50 for shipping to OWH if we get 50 cardmakers to participate in the challenge.  This card is made with a Flower Soft Dimensional Kit.

Challenge 8 is a Miss U Card with at least 1 circle and 2 banners. The cat stamp is really old.  Not sure who it is from.

OWH VCMP Challenge 5 Colorful background and 6 Winter/Christmas Card

Challenge 5 was to make a colorful background.
I knew I wanted to use this tiger stamp (Hero Arts from Michaels?)
I stamped my distress pads on my craft mat and spritzed with water and dragged my cardstock through it.  Then I made a more muted piece for the Tiger stamp and added more color.

Challenge 6 was to make a Christmas card and then a seasonal card that could be used all winter long.  The reindeer on the left is a $1 set.  The Cardinals on the right is a new Impression Obsession stamp that I just love (words are from SU).  Cardinals By the Window  I just got the stamp from my LSS PhotoScraps in Elderburg, MD. PhotoScraps
Colored with Copics R39, W3. Lace Tape from SU.

I was going to use the Cardinals for my own Holiday card this year but my daughter actually prefers the Reindeer one!

OWH VCMP Challenge 3 Paper Piece and 4 RWB birthday

Challenge 3 was to use paper piecing and make a card for kids.
Not my favorite activity - don't really like to fussy cut.  This is an old cuttlebug die and matching embossing folder.  I pieced the dress and shoes and colored the rest.

Challenge 4 was to make a Red, White and Blue birthday card. 

OWH VCMP Challenge 1 His/Hers and 2 Thank You

The first challenge was to use the same OWH sketch and make a His and Hers version. OWH July 4 2014 Virtual Card Making Party
One in pink with flowers and one in greens and grays.  The paper is from SU.

The 2nd challenge was to make a Thank You card.  I just got this Koi die as part of a Sea creatures set from Ellentina with Tessler stamps when I saw them at the Scrapbook Expo show in Dulles. Ellentina dies with Tessler Stamps. I wanted to buy all of her beautiful dies but managed to only get the show special of 5!

OWH Our Daily Bread July Challenge - Wings

The July OWH challenge from Our Daily Bread is Things with Wings. OWH Our Daily Bread July Challenge
This is a dimensional card kit from Flower Soft. It comes with the three layers printed and you just cut them out and adhere and add Flower Soft.  I made sure this Flower Soft does not contain glitter.

OWH Anyhero Flag card

This is my post for the OWH mid-week throwdown  OWH Anyhero flag card .
I don't have any flag stamps so I made this using ink pads and copic.
Then I realized I did have a stamp with a flag on it.  An old SU set called Courage. It was hand colored with markers and then stamped on glossy cardstock.
