I haven't posted much, but wanted to add my vote! I think Bluebear's wins so far!!! I don't think any foil on a card looks good right about now! haha

Bluebear, I just showed your card to DH and he said, "Wow! That's a victorian nightmare!"

I've been thinking about your card and I've decided that if you set up a table at truck stops, you could make a lot of money selling this card. They always have things with roses in, on, under, around and on top of them in truck stops.

One is called, "Look, Ma, I have curvy scissors and I can tear paper!"
It's stamp twin is... "Watercolor Garden Speckle Sneeze."
The other card is... well, I made it for a friend based on a short period story she was writing. I just call it "Oh, ow!"

Avert your eyes, ladies! And Bluebear... "Could I 'ave been a contenduh?"
That never was a favorite set for me- do you think it's just ugly rubbah?

I'd like to declare Bluebear the winner and award her the prize....What is the prize, stargirl? Maybe everyone RAK her with a card that we don't consider our ugliest, or should we have everyone send her a card that we made with tin foil. This could be a new SCS challenge!

Now I'm getting paranoid! I'm in my first ever swap...and still in the process of creating my "masterpieces." Now I'm scared to send them out! What if they suck?

Anyway, here's an "icky" from my gallery:

http:////www.splitcoaststampers.com/...8&ppuser=60963

I actually just wanted to see what the craft ink would look like embossed...so I slapped that on there. Then I realized I needed a thank you card for my bf's mom...so I gave it to her. Am I going to hell now?

What do you guys think about doing an ANTI-VSN? I think it would be hilarious. We could get a "shopping list" of the most odd stamping products ever...and try our hardest to make the ugliest cards. We could even have a requirement that everyone has to drink a box of wine (or two bottles of Boone's! ) before starting!

I haven't been able to figure out how to make anything look good with it. Sure, I'll blame it on the rubbah! I don't make ugly cards, I just use ugly stamps! But... then... oh, there's that other little too-many-vellum-layers card in my trio...

Wow, what a fun thread. I was looking for some of the cards I made way back when.. but they are on the other computer and I had to move it from one room to another upstairs and didn't get it hooked back up to the cable so I can view it on this computer ~ so I looked through what I had one this one. I made this card last October.. I don't know what I was thinking and after I finished it, I wished I hadn't even started on it. EEK!!!

Oh, wow, you're right it does! French's yellow mustard, not even the good stuff from Grey Poupon.

Actually it was an attempt at the rubber cement technique. Sometimes I get technique-happy and have all these backgrounds that are just begging to morph into a card. That's my excuse and I'm stickin' to it!

You think yours are ugly! Mine take the cake!

Okay first one. Try not to laugh out loud!
http:////www.splitcoaststampers.com/...0&ppuser=91260

Second One. Don't even bother commenting!
http:////www.splitcoaststampers.com/...0&ppuser=91260

Third One. YOU HAVE TO SEE THIS!!
http:////www.splitcoaststampers.com/...0&ppuser=91260

Fourth One. Way too plain!
http:////www.splitcoaststampers.com/...0&ppuser=91260

And Fifth One. Too gaudy, colors dont match.
http:////www.splitcoaststampers.com/...0&ppuser=91260

Okay, so we are all our own worst critics, but I have cards I am fond of... these just aren't any of them!! =)

OK. My awards are going in categories, because there is WAYYYYY too much ugliness here and they ALL deserve an award! LOL

For need of sunglasses, IllinoisMarge - runnerup teenstamper

The card that will haunt me later - Blue Baby Hands! EEK! (Sorry, I don't remember whose it was now!)

And the category that started it all.... Over-the-top-use-of-bling to the point of MAXIMUM GAUDINESS: I gotta go with Stargirl on this one. Sorry, Bluebear, but while it WILL keep aliens from controlling the minds of EVERYONE in your household, at least the colors work and for a 45 minute challenge, I think it was a good effort..... unlike my entry in the same category which I hope I removed from my gallery..... yuck..... oh, no... it's still there... it's on page 4 of my gallery, along with a couple other scary entries for March VSN. i do NOT work well under time constraints! LOL!

What a great thread!!

I just looked at all the *ugly* cards, and while I had to grab my sunglasses for teenstamper's neon pink card, Bluebear's tin foil card rocks!! Totally cracks me up everytime I look at it!

I don't want to dis the card or the patriotic theme, but that's what got me about the card too, was the strong contrast between the smacked bg and the photorealistic (kinda psycho yet still kinda confused-looking) dog just got me.

Here are my two entries, made with a shortage of time and trying to use up that #$^! blue value paper pack from Mikes. Some very kind folks commented on them, but honest the only reason they are in my gallery is so my DH can see what 'we' gave his dad and my niece for cards. That electric turquoise is a frig to use, btw.

Can we talk about the optical illusion of your icon now? *LoL*

Everytime I see this thing, I LAUGH.

Okay...now everyone scroll down this thread, paying special attention to Mahloumel's icon as it whizzes by.

Now tell me that doesn't look like a thong on a big orange butt?!?

ROFL. I've been telling folks that it's an actual pumpkin that's been carved (www.masterpiecepumpkins.com) but now you've spilled the beans! I was just proud of how much I toned up!

Oh, you HAVE toned up! And you've almost found the right shade of self-tanning lotion too...!!

I love this challenge! It reminded me of when I first started stamping, I had so many ideas going through my head I tried them all on one card. My creative disasters on on a boat from Japan so I can't compete, but Blue bear you definatly have the trophy in my eyes. I will never look at tin foil the same again.

You guys are cracking me up. I haven't had this much fun in a while. I do think Bluebear gets the winning entry. That rose is hilarious.

Teenstamper, thanks for clearing up a mystery for me. It must have been you I've swapped with at convention and regionals. Your cards look awfully familiar. LOL

I feel much better now knowing I'm not the only one who makes ugly cards. Unfortunately I usually throw mine out.

AmorA you are too funny. I just read your post and couldn't stop laughing about Mahloumel's icon. You're right it does look like a thong.

ROTFL it really is an ugly rubbah set! What were we thinking buying it?

Does anyone remember its real name? It's one of those early sets before I saw a need to put the set name label on the case, and even though I still have all my old catalogs, I can't find it. It's almost like it's so ashamed it even existed that it edited itself out! I know "Watercolor Garden" is another set entirely, but that's how I've come to think of it.
