SEP12VSNN ~ Saturday, September 22 ~ 8:00pm EST ~ School Themed Paper
 
Hi friends and welcome to Virtual Stamp Night September 2012 Back to School!

Title: School-Themed Designer Paper
Hostess: Cindy Coutts (KY Southern Belle)
Keyword: SEP12VSNN
Day/Date: Saturday, September 22, 2012
Time: 8:00pm EST

I have the pleasure to hostess a challenge for this special occasion and I have a very fun challenge for you:

CHALLENGE: TO MAKE YOUR OWN SCHOOL THEMED DESIGNER PAPER - You can use designer paper or whatever other embellishments you would like but NO STAMPING! The ONLY item that can be stamped on your card is the SENTIMENT.

MY SAMPLE: Teacher Holiday Card

It's very easy to do. Let your paper go to work for you!

For my card, I cut several 1/2" strips of Stampin' Up! Storybook Designer Series Paper and adhered them diagonally to a Real Red card stock base covering the entire card. I then trimmed of the edges.

I used Papertry Ink Half & Half Die cut onto Daffodil Delight card stock to anchor my sentiment which was stamped on Vintage Cream card stock from Teach & Inspire using Midnight Muse ink for the frame that was die-cut from Fillable Frames #7, and then stamped my sentiment in Real Red.

I wrapped New Leaf Baker's Twine around the center of the card a few times and then adhered the entire sentiment panel onto the card with foam tape. I finished the card off with a silver Library Clip.

I hope that you like this and please join us for our fun challenges this evening.

UPLOADING INSTRUCTIONS:

1. ALL VSN CREATIONS MUST BE UPLOADED BY 10:00 PM EST ON Monday September 24th.
2. You have 45 minutes to complete the challenge.
3. Please remember to put in the correct keyword, SEP12VSNN.

Check out the rest of the fun at the SEP12VSNN GALLERY!

Thank you so much for playing along.

OMG! A couple of the cards I've made today fit this challenge! Die cuts, punches, etc. Easy peasy! I may not get to this tonight but soon......

muzbysmom 09-22-2012 04:09 PM

The message I got when I clicked on the link was that I didn't have permission to see the Fan Club Gallery or something like that....

I may need to resort to die-cuts since I have NO school-themed paper, and we can't stamp our own. :(

Yeah, I've asked the mods to move it over. Our hostess is feelin' puny. :(

muzbysmom 09-22-2012 04:10 PM

I don't think it has to be school themed....

tessaduck 09-22-2012 04:11 PM

Funny links been happening lately. I can't seem to copy and paste my card in the message box, but can go advanced to link 'em.

Here's mine .

LuvLee 09-22-2012 04:12 PM

Yep....her challenge is to make it school themed! ;) You may have to get creative! :D

Well, the title is School-Themed Designer Paper. :( I may have to get creative here. Maybe something with numbers on it. Or letters.

muzbysmom 09-22-2012 04:14 PM

I don't have any school themed paper so.......

No graph paper? Newspaper? Old dictionary pages? Wrapping paper? Maps? All of these are used in school, just not dp. I bet they'd pass muster.

I don't know what happened but at the last minute, the mods moved my card link to a different gallery. I hope they fix it. I was up all last night and on top of it, I'm moving. Ugh. And now I'm going to bed. Comments in the morning or when I wake up in about 5 hours not being able to sleep!

Get creative! There's a lot of school-themed stuff out there that's outside of the box. You ladies can do this :) Whoever suggested the grid paper is brilliant! Thank you so much for helping.

UH OH!! Fail :(

Back to the drawing board - unless Xmas DP is school-themed?... LOL

Geenz 09-22-2012 04:44 PM

Thanks for the challenge Cindy! My awesome stamping friend said I would never use the Love Impressions paper (it is very against my personality) so I was proud of myself when I realized it would be a great DSP for this challenge!

They moved it out of the Hostess gallery to make it public. It's all handled. :) Get some rest!

I ended up making DP using leftover Creative Memories Letter and Numbers. I found a quote I liked on the computer and typed it up and printed it off.... Here's my card:

LuvLee 09-22-2012 04:54 PM

Yep.....when it first moved over the card was still in the hostess gallery...that's why people couldn't see it. So once we got it moved public everyone could see it.

meerkat3 09-22-2012 04:56 PM

I think I am having serious comprehension issues this evening. Can I use any school themed dsp or do I need to make my own? It's been a long day...

naturecoastcrafter 09-23-2012 06:02 AM

Well, this taught me how to do piecing in an easy way. I used to measure everything. LOL.
