For Love of Chocolate - VSN

Good morning and happy Saturday! Did you see stampTV has over 1000 members already? I forgot to tell you yesterday that my user name is Theresa and here is a link to my page there. If you join, I would love for you to add me as a friend, so I will know how to find you. There are so many members, it is getting hard for me to track down my friends, but at least I am making new friends in the process.

The card above is one I did yesterday for VSN (Virtual Stamp Night). I made it in about 30 minutes. You should have seen the scraps flying. I participated in three of the challenges so far, but this is the only blog worthy card. I am going to try to do some more today. It's really fun and a great challenge for me because I tend to spend way too much time on my cards.


I used the iris stamp from Elegant Flowers, which is part of the Floral Frenzy stampTV kit. It is colored with Copic markers and embossed with clear embossing powder. The background is sponged with Certainly Celery, So Saffron and Apricot Appeal. The sentiment is also from Elegant Flowers.

This was a color challenge, so that is how I chose my card stock colors. The colors were Chocolate Chip, Apricot Appeal and Cameo Coral. I thought I had pulled Cameo Coral, but later realized that pinkish layer is Groovy Guava, an old SU in color. Oops.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a great weekend!

30 minutes??? WOW!! You go girl! I can't keep up with the challenges on VSN, lol! I do try though, but like you said, not many blog worthy cards yet, haha! This is just gorgeous though Theresa! I know I spend too much time on my cards so that's one reason I have been trying out the CAS cards lately, lol.

Hey, you sure that was an accident about the groovy Guava? Arent you the one that don't like Cameo Coral?? haha!

Another beautiful card!

I just got a chance earlier today to check the challenges. I'm hoping to be able to do one or two before 10:00 PM.

It was great to watch Gina and be able to put a voice to the face!
