Hey stampers!!! Ready to kick this thing off!!!


I think everyone needs a friend that you can be yourself, let your hair down... that friend who will answer the phone in the middle of the night without complaint, who will drop everything for you & has been with you through thick & think (even if it's when your body was thin & now it's a bit thicker!!! ) My challenge for you is to create a project that you could send to THAT friend that is a punny, snarky, humorous card. No one else might appreciate it, but THAT friend will!

Challenge Title: Color Crazy
Hostess: Katlyn
Keyword: APRVSN17B
Date: Friday, March 31 (6 PM EST)

Time for another challenge!

My family's mini schnauzer was, so far as we know, born on April Fools' Day. Let's just say she is quite a character - sometimes she's just crazy! From sitting on the arm of the couch like a cat, to stamping her feet for attention, she keeps life interesting. So in honor of her April Fools Day birthday, we're borrowing the colors from her collar for a color challenge!

Your challenge is to use the colors pink and brown (neutrals are, of course, allowed!) to make your card! Extra virtual brownie points if there is a dog somewhere on your card!

When I think of "fools", I think of Mr. T and his famous phrase, "I pity the fool!". He had a unique style with his iconic Mohawk and lots of gold jewelry.




My challenge for you is to make a project that includes both stripes and gold.

Default APRVSN17D ~ Friday March 31 - 8 PM ~ Masking Fools ~ smadson

Challenge: Masking Fools
Hostess: smadson (Sharon)
Keyword: APRVSN17D
Date: Friday March 31st, 8:00 PM

Welcome to our Spring Virtual StampNight! (VSN) Our theme is April Fools, and that made me think of an April Fool jokes that I was part of in the past. When I worked we played a great one on our boss. We covered the bosses office with Post It notes! Quite a surprise for the boss on April Fools Day! It was funny, and fun, too. Luckily our boss had a good sense of humor!

So, remembering that is how I came up with this technique challenge! Masking, (with Post it notes). Masking is a great way to create a scene on your card. Basically, you stamp your image on your CS, then stamp it again on a Post It note or scrap of paper, or a special paper that will stick or not move. You fussy cut the image and put it over or “mask” your stamped image on your CS. Then you can stamp other things over that and they will look like they are in back of the first image. This is one of the first techniques I ever learned.

Here is a tutorial right here on SCS:Masking: Basic

Here is another tutorial: Die CutMasking


There are several different kinds of masking in resources and if you are really ambitious here is Falling Snow Scene tutorial using masks and masking fluid.

So as long as you use some kind of masking , you meet the requirements for this challenge.

Just have fun!
I can't wait to see what you come up with!

Default APRVSN17E ~ March 31 - 9 pm ET ~ Calendar Fools ~ debdeb

Challenge Title: Don't Miss the Memo!
Hostess: Deb (debdeb)
Keyword: APRVSN17E
Date: Friday, March 31 (9 PM EST)


This, according to legend, is how April Fools' Day came about: In the year that the Gregorian calendar was adopted there were some folks who "missed the memo" that the start of the New Year had changed from April 1st to January 1st, and so, when they began to celebrate on April 1st as had been the former tradition, they were called April Fools.

My challenge is to grab your planner, calendar, or to do list and make it pretty! Stamp, paint, draw, doodle...find a way to transform the ordinary into something beautiful that transcends the everyday, that speaks to your spirit to bring calm, energy, or enthusiasm for the (often mundane) tasks at hand.

Challenge Title: Not Always Black and White!!

Hostess: annsforte3 (Ann)

Keyword: APRVSN17F

Date: Saturday, April 1, 2017, 1:00 P.M. EST


Welcome to a magical April Fools Virtual Stamp Night!! I am very happy to be one of your hostess for this event!

One of my favorite movies is Pleasantville! Why you ask? I love seeing how the movie goes from black and white to beautiful living color as the characters in the movie obtain personal growth!

The change from a black and white image to color is truly magical!! The monochrome image changing to a colored image enhances one’s view of the subject matter.

Ok, so now you are probably thinking you know what my challenge is all about! Yes, my challenge is to make a magic card!! There are a couple of ways to make this card.

One way is using the tutorial here at SCS or a simpler version of it by Unity Stamp. Either way, when that tab is pulled and you see your image turned to color, it is truly magical!

My challenge for you is to make a Magic Card.

See the tutorial here on SCS: Magic Card Tutorial - Splitcoaststampers

Or make the simpler magic card by following the tutorial here: https://www.unitystampco.com/unity-q...-feather-card/

Default APRVSN17G ~ Saturday April, 1st - 2:00 P.M. ~ Fools Who Dream ~ tessaduck

Challenge Title: Fools Who Dream
Hostess: tessaduck (Brenda)
Keyword: APRVSN17G
Date: Saturday, April 1, 2017, 2 P. M. EST

My challenge to you: Take inspiration from the Oscar-nominated song, Audition: The Fools Who Dream, from La La Land.

Imagine: Late 60's, blowing soap bubbles out the window of a Ford Fairlane, bellowing "Carpe Diem, Seize the Day-- Blow Ye Bubbles While Ye May," en route to play in the People's Fountain. That may have been my "Fools Who Dream" event...

I consider myself to be a pragmatic, practical, responsible (boring) person. This memory is precious to me.

Don't worry-- I wasn't driving. However, there was a bottle of cheap wine in the air vent, cooling, for later consumption.

Here's the lyrics: The Fools Who Dream

There's plenty of potential with these lyrics. I'm picturing a get well card from the phrase "She spent a month sneezing..." I can't wait to see what inspires you.

Default APRVSN17K ~ Sat. April 1 ~ 6 pm ~ My Craft Room is Full of...~ berlycece

Challenge Title: My Craft Room is Full of Ssshhhaving Cream!
Hostess: Kim (aka berlycece)
Keyword: APRVSN17K
Date: Saturday April 1, 6 pm EST



Hey there stampers!! Are you having fun yet? I am!!


When I first thought of the theme April Fools, I remembered a special day during my foster parenting years. April Fools Day fell on a Saturday (like today!) and we celebrated all day. The kids (5 of them at the time) were told they could play pranks, as long as they didn't cause injury or property damage, and didn't break the law. Shaving cream found its way onto a few door knobs and in someone's hair. I think there was an all-out war in the back yard!

In honor of that, I knew I wanted a "silly" technique, so my mind went instantly to the Shaving Cream Technique!

This fun technique is easy, and great with kids! I did this with 3 grand-daughters recently, and their giggles made my heart happy! Their mom is one of my former foster teens from that memorable day, so it is extra special to me.

You can use one color, or multiple colors...use as a background or for die cuts...just have FUN!! You can also try Lydia's version, which she introduced last fall: Shaving Cream Stenciling


I can't wait to see what you create!!

APRIL FOOLS
No Tom Cruise, but I got your attention didn't I?!
We are going to make a GATE FOLD LATCH CARD.

Hello VSN lovers. This is my first time as a VSN hostess, so I am excited. You are probably wondering what a Gate Fold Latch Card is and how it relates to April Fools. Well, a Gate Fold Latch Card is basically a gate fold with a latch due to how the layers are attached. It relates to April Fools, because it looks sweet and innocent like a regular gate fold but when the receiver goes to open it they realize they have to unlatch it first. Bwahaha. Follow me?

I have a tutorial for you to follow HERE.

Please NOTE * I have found doubling the frame and inside with two pieces of paper when cutting makes the card sturdier when opening and closing. (My paper is thick and would not cut through both so I separated them and ran through my cutter again on the second piece.)

Default APRVSN17M ~ Saturday April 1st @ 8pm ~ Not always a Stamping Fool! ~ dawnmercedes

I am sure we have all been through it...when our loved one, friend, mother, spouse... accuse of us of spending too much time stamping! So, let's show them that we are not always a stamping fool! For this challenge, create a card WITHOUT any stamps on it!



Ideas for sentiments: you can use a pre-printed message or alphabet stickers or die cuts of words.


Ideas for images: use flowers, washi tape, decorative brads, elaborate stickers, die cuts or dig through those mounds of embellishments you have tucked away in drawers.


The sky is the limit here...just NO STAMPS!

Some people have an innate ability to create watercolor masterpieces...and then there's people like me who need a foolproof method to produce something pretty! Thanks to the generous nature of stampers, us "watercolor fools" can learn from the best. Kim Jolley at Stampin' Artfully featured a technique she called Foolproof Watercolor. The results are stunning! My challenge to you is to make a card using Kim's Foolproof Watercolor technique. You will find her written tutorial HERE. If you prefer a short video, Kim has one HERE. Thank you for playing along and thank you to Kim Jolley for giving me permission to use her technique for this challenge! HAVE FUN with this!

Keyword: APRVSN17O

This has been a fantastically creative weekend! We're finishing it off with The Greatest Hoax challenge! Your challenge is to read through this link of the The Top 100 Greatest April Fool's Day Hoaxes of All Time, laugh and laugh, then choose a hoax that inspires you. There are some incredulous claims that people actually fell for! Be sure to tell us which Hoax you chose!
I'm adding in a fun bonus twist! Fool your recipient with something sneaky! Such as, an upside down panel, or a funky fold that's hard to open, or maybe a glued shut card! Hahaha! HAVE LOTS FUN with this!
