Couple of VSN Cards to share

 What could this Tilda be doing? You will have to read down a bit to find out. I must say, this close up shot shows that I don’t get very close to the image when I cut things out :(


I am playing along with a few challenges at Splitcoast stampers this weekend. They are having a virtual stamp night and the theme is the Winter Olympics. The first card I will show had the theme At the Waterfront. I choose to use this Tilda I received as an image swap. I colored her and then popped her up over the water ring. I used a bit of diamond glaze on the water ring so it could appear wet.

I used the curvy rectangle nestie to cut the image out first and layered it on a piece of CS cut with the Labels 7. I did this mostly because I was on a time limit (you only have 45 minutes to create your card) and I didn’t want to waste time resizing the next die in the curvy rectangle set. It was way huge for my card. The rest was easy….layer a few pieces of paper and cardstock, lay the netting across and glue a seahorse charm. I added the charm because I will give this card to my son’s girlfriend who adores seahorses. For those inquiring minds, here are the copics I used:


My next card was for the Snow Blind challenge. We were to make a white card with all white embellishments. I began with cutting out a Labels 6 die and using an oval to cut out the center. The sentiment inside is from Justrite Joyful Hearts set.

I embossed this piece with my swiss dot CB folder. I embossed the entire cardfront with the divine swirls folder. I added some narrow ribbons, bows and a few pearls. For the finishing touch that sadly doesn’t show up, I spritzed the whole card with Sheer Shimmer Spritz in Frost. The whole card really does sparkle.

I am planning to work on a few more challenges, so stop by again later.


  1. Crazy about both of these cards-Tilda is just adorable- love the colors - she is ready for the water for sure.
    The totally white card is simply beautiful - so elegant

  2. Love both cards! The Tilda is adorable and the all white is just lovely. Nice work!

  3. Love them both. It really is a snow blind and I am glad you are using the spritz. stamp temptress
