Whoa! They snuck in a VSN!

OK. so I admit I've been a little busy lately... or maybe just forgetful... but I almost missed this weekend's virtual stamp night at Splitcoast! Whoops! I did remember late last night and so was able to put a few together this morning, but I had to stop because I still have some ATC's to get done for PAT 14!!! Wow, I'm on a total papercrafting binge!

The first challenge I participated in was #1, which was to use colors from a country flag that is participating in the Olympics. I chose the Bahamas, mostly because I liked the flag colors the best out of the one's offered, but Ialso because I was having a flash back to the old movie Cool Runnings, which was about a Jamaican bobsled team. I imagine Bahamanians are at similar disadvantages competing in winter games!! So, their flag colors are black, teal, and gold. I used papers from Basic Grey's Off Beat collection:

I acented the card with little gems from Kaiser Craft. The stamp set is from Stampin Up.

My next card was for challenge 5 - to feature the letter 'S', to use pink, no neutrals but white, and to use the kissing technique. Here's what I came up with:

The patterned paper is Cloud 9, and the image is from Serendipity Stamps. I used QuicKutz for the letters - the "S" is Blossom and the other letters are Eliza mini. I used a nestabilities to cut out the main image, which was colors with Copics. The heart under the 's' is where the kissing technique is.... I used a QuicKutz to make my own foam stamp and the kissing was done on a background stamp from Glitz designs.

My final card was sort of fun because I don't usually do a lot of masculine cards. It is for challenge 6, to spotlight a sport, use Olympic colors of blue, red, yellow, black, green and also to use the 'spotlight' technique.

Yes, I'm pretty sure there's no ATV racing in the Olympics but this is about as sporty as I get! I used paper from an old Basic Grey collection and the ATV stamp is from Stampin Up... the distress stamp in the corner is from Glitz designs. The brads are from stash.

It's kind of a ho hum day outside today here... perfect for more scrappin, so I'm off! Have a fabulous end to your weekend!
