More VSN

I did another VSN challenge tonight because it meant I could use some paper I bought last year and still hadn't opened yet. The challenge was to use something kitchen- or food-related, and, well, I haz that.

This is the one I made first:

The paper is Cosmo Cricket Garden Variety, and I had to open the package to use it. Sigh. The colors are very bright, which may be one reason I'm not drawn to it - I'm more into the muted colors. But you'll have to admit those papers go very well with the Lockhart stamp, non? Actually, the sentiment is Lockhart, too. I even used some yellow baker's twine (baker ... kitchen ... just trying to stay with the theme, here...)

Then I spied some Hambo stamps, still not-yet-used, so I couldn't put them away, and I had to make this one:

(hee hee) Both stamps are Hambo, and I used more paper from the Garden pack plus some orange baker's twine. I really didn't intend to wrap it that many times, but I cut it too long, and heaven knows I don't need to add to the Miscellaneous Ribbon drawer.

I'll check out a few more of the challenges to see if I feel like doing them tomorrow, but more likely I'll work on some projects for my March Stamp Camps. So far, I've got nuthin'.

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. As always, I'm a great fan of the "peas" wordplay. Lovely card! But then you know you're my favorite stamper and so on and so on... ;)

  2. ♥VENI, VIDI, VEGGIE!!!♥
    (i came, i saw, there were AWESOME cards with peas and carrots!)

    these are FABULOUS missus, i was shocked reading the text that the stamps and paper were not made by the same co...they are SO VERRRRRRY PERFECT together!!! :)

  3. I really like the bright veggie cards!


I'd love to hear what you really think! :-)
