WHAT???? What do all those letters mean? (is this what you are asking too?) VSN is also known as Virtual Stamp Night and SCS as most of you are aware, is this awesome website http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ And it is going on this weekend...Well last night and today anyways! They usually have it every few months...what happens during VSN you might ask? Well it usually starts on a Friday night and every hour on the our (usually starting at 7pm) there is a challenge posted, to make a card or 3-d project...whats the catch you ask? YOu have to make your card in 45 minutes and then upload it to your SCS gallery...it is sooo much fun! Fridays are usually the *tailge* party and Saturdays the challenges start at noon and end at 11pm. And then each challenge hostess picks a winner and the winners get their cards placed in a special gallery FOREVER!!! It's pretty fun...although you do make a HUGE mess! Here are some of my cards from this past VSN...I got to play on Friday night some, but not on Saturday...BUMMER! VSN's usually have a theme and the theme this go round was *Girl's Night Out*
A little back Dress

I love this little card! The challenge was called *little black dress* and you had to make a card using your black cardstock...even for the mail panel! So I made this little cutey! Don't you just love this bird? It's from a set named *Always* and I think it's SUPERB... you will fefinately be seeing more projects with this set!!! I also used print pattern BG (to make it show up so nicely on the back cardstock, I used craft ink in pink passion...gotta LOVE the craft inks!!! for the main image, I actually stamped it with white craft ink and then embossed it with iridescen ice embossing powder, the sentiment was stamped with White craft ink as well! I'm really not too pleased with the ribbon (wish I had white) but this card NEEDED wide ribbon and this color was the only one that would even remotely do!)


Stamps: Always
Paper: basic black, pink passion
ink: pink passion craftm whispe white craft

A shaped Card!
This card was for the inspiration challenge on Saturday. Here is some of the info on it!
Title: Little Black DressHostess: Jennifer (badger-girl)Keyword: JAN08VSNCDay/Date: Friday, January 18thTime: 8:00 PM EST
This was an inspiration challenge... Jennifer posted a picture of some shoes that she really liked and we had to make a card or project inspired by the shoes...it could be color, layout, shape...anything really! So this is what I made... I have really been into the shaped cards lately and I love love love how this one turned out...even the little bow I think is just perfect... off to the side just a tad... I wish they really did make this shoe, it would totally be mine!!!
Stamps: something beautiful
paper: basic black, Close to cocoa, pretty in pink
Accessories: ribbon, hand held punch, paper piercer, paper snips
I hope you have enjoyed these cards! VSN was a blast and I hope you can play along next time... I will let you knw a tad bit sooner!!! LOL
Happy Stampin'
