Virtual Stamp Night (Part Two)

This was for the Kids Travel Pouch Challenge, to create a travel game for your kids. I really enjoyed this challenge, although I wish I would have had more time to color better and make more cards! Old Crab is my version of Old Maid, except nobody wants the Crabby Crab. I used 4.25"x3" pieces of Whisper White to make the game cards. I colored using the Bold Brights ink pads and an Aquapainter. SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Fishy Friends, Silly Sealife, Fintastic, Classic Alphabet, Big Deal Alphabet, Spunky Alphabet; Paper- Whisper White, DCWV Red, Basic Black; Ink- Basic Black, Bold Brights ink pads for watercoloring; Accessories- 6x6 page protector, gingham ribbon for handle, Aquapainter.

The Room with a View Challenge was very interesting. I had never made anything like this before, but it was A LOT of fun! You had to create a 3D world that you'd like to escape to. I chose an undersea world. To make one of these, all you have to do is start with an 8.5"x8.5" piece of cardstock. Score at 4.25" on both sides so you end up with four equal squares. Then you cut on the score line between two of the squares and when you fold it up, the one bottom side tucks under the other. I hope that made sense. You should try one, and even look at the submissions to this challenge. There are some AMAZING 3D worlds! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Silly Sealife, Fintastic, Shore Thing; Ink- Basic Black, Tempting Turquoise, Summer Sun; Paper- turquoise, Whisper White; Accessories- Prismacolor pencils, gamsol, stump.
My last one was for the Survivor Altered Tin Challenge. It was to create an altered tin survival kit for a special getaway. I chose to alter this CD tin. When driving long distances, I find it necessary to have CDs, DVDs (for passengers) and Books on CD. They help to make the trip shorter! :) (especially those books on CD) This was a fun challenge because I don't alter things too often, so it got me out of usual card mode. Hope you were able to play along a bit on Virtual Stamp Night. If not, maybe next time? It really is a lot of fun, and you only have to do as much as you CAN do. No rules that say you have to do every challenge. . .so try it next time! :) Thanks for visiting and have a great rest of your weekend! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Spunky Alphabet, Rough Edges Alphabet; Ink- Chocolate Chip, Certainly Celery; Paper- DCWV Spring Stack, Certainly Celery; Accessories- CD tin, Prima flowers, Making Memories brad, May Arts ribbon, Oriental Trading ribbon, Crop-a-Dile.

The game and cards look fabulous and I love the great tin! Wonderful job on the 'room' - I want to go there! You've been busy! I spent most of today cleaning, sorting and reorganizing my stamp room very throughly. Hope to maybe squeeze a few VSN cards in on Sunday. :)

My mom, gremhog, hosted the Room with a View challenge. She is going to get a kick out of seeing one of these cards on a blog! I loved that card by the way...saw it in the galleries.
