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

Challenge Title: Not always a Stamping Fool!
Hostess: DawnMercedes
Keyword: APRVSN17M
Date: April 1st, 2017 @ 8pm


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!




View the gallery for this challenge: HERE
View the April Fool's Gallery:HERE
View the April Fool's Challenge Thread: HERE


1. ALL VSN CREATIONS MUST BE UPLOADED BY 10 P. M. EST ON Sunday, April 9.
2. You have 1 hour to complete the challenge, unless otherwise noted.....you do not have to count prep time!
3. We have a special gallery for the April Fool's VSN.
a) From the "Main Gallery" dropdown list on the first page of the uploader, choose Events and Special Collections.
b) From the Sub-gallery dropdown list, choose Virtual Stamping and Scrapbooking Nights ~ it's the last in the list.
c) From the new sub-gallery dropdown list choose April Fool's - it's the very top of the list.
4. Please remember to put in the correct keyword when uploading your image. Copying and pasting the challenge keyword is recommended to avoid typos.
5. Please do not combine VSN challenges...but you may combine any other challenges with a VSN challenge!

It is also highly recommended that you post a link to your creation in this chat thread to be sure your layout is seen. THANKS SO MUCH FOR PLAYING ALONG!!!

I just remembered I have some old vellum sheets with sentiments. Those would work perfectly for this challenge!
