VCMP Day 2 - Challenges 6 -10

The card making fun continued today with 5 additional challenges for Day 2 of the OWH President's Day Virtual Card Making Party.

Challenge #6 Things with Wheels 
Hosted by Linda at Creepin Along

Motorcycle by Stampers Best • Embossing Folders & Gears Die by Tim Holtz
Fishtail Flag Die by My Favorite Things • Sentiment by Inkadinkado

Challenge #7 Caffeine 
Hosted by Jen at The Sparkle Within

Express Yourself Stamp Set by StampinUp (Retired) • Paper by Echo Park (This & That, 6x6)

Challenge #8 Use Washi Tape 
Hosted by Donna at Indiana Inking

Sentiment by StampinUp • Edge Punch by Martha Stewart • Washi Tape from my stash

Challenge #9 All White/Cream 
Hosted by Sharon at Desert Rose Outpost

I took some liberties on this one and used several shades of cream papers I had in my stash to give it just a little contrast and depth. Photographing it was almost as big a challenge as making it! :)
Layered Flower Die by My Favorite Things • Edge Punch by Martha Stewart • Sentiment by Hero Arts
Embossing Folder by Sizzix

Challenge #10 Glitz & Glam without Glitter 
Hosted by Kaylee at 104 Cards for Soldiers

Sentiment by Papertrey Ink • Embossing folder by Cuttlebug • Edge Punch by Martha Stewart
Label Stax 1 Die by My Favorite Things • Papers from my stash

The VCMPs are half treasure hunt – to find what you have that would work – and half creativity, and always fun. Many thanks to everyone who hosted a challenge today and to everyone who played along too.

Happy Crafting!

Wow...impressive set of cards! The motorcycle card is such a great mix of neutral textures and the pop of red in the banner is just perfect! Trying to figure out your technique on the coffee mugs...paper pieced? Very very cute! Combination of the washi tape, ribbon and border punch is fantastic and the colors are great! Neutral card is the textures and bit of shine in the pearls and ribbon. The silver in the Glitz and Glam is just stunning! Love the pop of bright blue! Very special card!

Amazing cards for the second VCMP day! I really love your idea for the washi tape. The CAS design really shows off the wonderful colors and patterns of tape. Thanks for playing along with my washi tape challenge. Have a great week!

Paula -- I am not surprised you have a group of fantastic cards. I like how you added the die cut gears to your first card -- love the colors you used. The Caffeine card is special with the mugs cut outs -- I really like the DP for this card. The Washi tape card is bright and cheery -- I really like the plaid with the polka dots. The sentiment is just perfect too. The All white/cream card is lovely the way you layered the different variations of cream. It does give it contrast and depth. I know what you mean about photographing these little puppies LOL (Thanks for participating in the this challenge). The Glitz and Glam is great with the silver --and the blue does make it pop -- I like the edging punch adds a wonderful elegance to the card.

I am in awe of your ability to completely design and create ten different cards in two days. My brain is tired out. I usually make six cards a day, but only one design! I like every one of the cards you made - I don't really have a favorite because each one has something new for me to take note of. I do, however, have to say the All White/Cream card is a real beauty!

Linda said...

Wowzers on the cards...I have to agree with you that the hunt for stuff takes alot of work! Each card is perfect...I have looked them over and I cannot pick one that is my fave because they all are...the details on each just shine. I am like Lee Mae...I am in awe! Thanks for playing in the Things with Wheel challenge...and providing constant inspiration & support!

Jen said...

wow!! These are all pretty fantastic! I like how you stamped the mug steam in multiple colors! Thanks for playing in my caffeine challenge!

TR said...

What amazing cards you created for the challenges. Really love the variety of creams you used on the cream or white challenge. It does give it a lot of depth and personality.

Stacy B said...

Great cards Paula! I am in love with your Anniversary card for the white 3 layer's gorgeous.

C. M. Taylor said...

I am following the white/cream 3 layer challenge from Sharon. I wanted to let you know that I think your cards are just beautiful. The three layers in white/cream is special. I just like the way you layered it and pulled it all off!
Thanks for sharing.

Such impressive cards. Of course I'm partial to the one from my challenge ;-) Love the embossed metallic paper. That really adds so much to your card.
