Title: Circus Circus
Hostess: Jimmi (jpmayo)
Keyword: MAY09VSNPRE1
Date: Saturday March 28, 2009
Time: 10:00am EDT

When I was a little girl my grandparents took me to Las Vegas every Summer.

We would leave CT and drive to Vegas!
Each time taking a different route so we could visit all over the the United States!

The Casino we ALWAYS stayed at was the Circus Circus! I have the best memories of staying there as a child!

My challenge to you is to make a card inspired by the Circus!

The only requirement is that it has the color ORANGE on it somewhere because the lights outside of the casino are orange and it is the color that makes me think of the Circus Circus Hotel and Casino!

You can choose clowns, circus animals, acrobatics, trapeze artists, jugglers…anything Circus related as your inspiration!!


Have fun and I can't wait to see what you come up with!

Title: THE VENETIAN
Hostess: Sherry (SherryLC05)
Keyword: MAY09VSNPRE3
Date: Sat March 28, 2009
Time: 12 PM (noon) EDT

I have never been to Las Vegas but I really want to go one day! In fact, my boyfriend and I joke around about getting married by Elvis in Vegas. Vegas is famous for it's bright lights, casinos, and over indulgences of many kinds. One of the most luxurious and indulgent hotels in Vegas is The Venetian. From the marble floors and gold trim in the lobby to the gondolas floating down the man-made river you can indulge yourself in the luxuries of Venice- all without leaving the continental U.S.

My Challenge to you is to make a card using the colors from the lobby of The Venetian Hotel in Las Vegas. The colors are:

Yellow/Gold
Burgundy
Blue
White/Cream

You can use any brand of cardstock as long as the colors are close. Attached are some pictures for you to use as your inspiration and my sample.

Have fun and I can't wait to see what you come up with!

Title: "Mandalay Bay"
Hostess: Trish ~strongcanadianbeauty~
Keyword: MAR09VSNPRE4
Day/Date: Saturday, March, 28/09
Time: 7:00 PM (EST)

I’ve never been to Vegas so I’ve had to live vicariously through my DH who has. He stayed in Mandalay Bay and was impressed with the shark reef in the hotel. So much so he sent the kids post cards of it!!

See parts of the Mandalay Bay hotel including the Shark Reef:

To see either a virtual 360 view, a walk through or picture slides of the Mandalay Bay, including the Shark Reef, click HERE. Once on the map click on a round orange bubble to view a 360 view of that location….. try the shark tunnel. There are picture slides to view through as well at the bottom of the screen, just click on the numbered pages. By clicking on a blue bubble, just choose an area that you’d like to explore, to take a walk through!!

I’ve never been to Vegas but I do love things that inspire me to create so here is your challenge:

Be it blue….or ocean…fish….or shell….creature of the water (mythical or real) make a card inspired by the Shark Reef in the Mandalay Bay Hotel in Vegas.

There is one catch (no pun intended, lol) you are in Vegas……and what does Vegas have a ton of???? Cards!!!! You MUST use a playing card on your card.

If you don’t have a playing card or would hate to break up a pack of cards for this challenge no problem!!!! All you need is a piece of paper/cardstock in the shape of a playing card (approx. 3.5 inches by 2.5 inches) and make sure to round the corners!!! Consider the geometrical patterns on playing cards…do you have DP that would make a good playing card? Maybe you have a stamp that would make for a good playing card bg? Real playing card or faux...you decide!!

I’ll bet you'll have a ton of fun, now go set your timer!!!

Title: The Paris
Hostess: Cav (Maggie's Mummy)
Keyword: MAY09VSNPRE5
Date: Sat. March 28, 2009
Time: 8:00pm EDT


"Uproarious comedy. Plush lounges. The Eiffel Tower. When it comes to entertainment, Paris Las Vegas has it all."

I'm sure you've all heard of The Paris Hotel. But, did you all know that Roulette originated in 18th Century France? Did you know that Roulette is French for "small wheel"? Well, until I was directed to the internet by some great VSN Friends of mine, I certainly didn't!!!!!

With this in mind, my challenge is simple - create a View-Master© Card (just like Roulette - a "small wheel" - don't you think??) using the Paris Hotel, Las Vegas as your inspiration.

Never tried the View-Master© Card technique before? Neither had I until this challenge (seemed fitting as I've never been to Vegas either - LOL!!!!) so here is the wonderful tutorial by Kyla Maestas.

I've attached two pics of the inside of the hotel and my Avatar is a picture of the outside. My sample is in my gallery - I tried, very hard, to make my pearls and diamentes form a familiar shape. Hopefully you can all spot what I tried to do here. I also used the colours of The Paris to inspire my creation.

DON'T FORGET TO ADD a post to your card to this thread so we can all see your creations.

Title: LUXOR PYRAMID
Hostess: Robyn (Robyn O)
Keyword: MAY09VSNPRE6
Date: Sat. March 28, 2009
Time: 9PM EDT

I have never been to Las Vegas. I do enjoy looking at the pictures with all the bright lights and each casino trying to out do the next. In looking at pictures of the hotels, I am intrigued by the Luxor PYRAMID. I love the fact that it looks so different from all the other hotels and I like the 39 volatile 7,000-watt xenon lamps atop the Luxor pyramid. Touted as the world's brightest light, Sky Beam is strong enough to read a book by—10 miles (16 kilometers) out in space.

Now, all casinos have gaming tables and they have felt tops and I enjoy the feel of felt.

My challenge to you is to make a card inspired by the Gaming Table felt top using the Faux Felt Technique.

There are two requirements on this challenge, first your card must be triangular in shape, like the faces on the pyramid and second that your layer of Faux Felt be the topmost layer or the layer immediately under your image. I want to see the Faux Felt.

What is the Faux Felt Technique you ask. There are two ways to create it.
One way is to run a piece of card stock through the paper crimper a few times at different angles until you are able to separate the two layers. The “inside” feels like felt, just as soft as the felt.
The other is to take a piece of cardstock that is cut slightly larger than needed and crumple it up, open and smooth it out and repeat that several times. Finally, carefully separate it into two pieces. The inside is the faux felt.

Can’t wait to see all what everyone comes up with.
