Silhouettes & VSN....

VSN was this weekend...22 hours of card-making challenges, but as we entered into the event Friday, I still hadn't done my Study in Silhouettes so I decided to use silhouettes on all of the cards that I made for the event.

I am not going to add any more detail to these cards then what I wrote in my gallery over on SCS because I have a sick little one that doesn't really want me on the computer. Hopefully, you can make some sense out of that...

~Missing You...Using New Supplies~

This is my card for using my New Loves. This paper is SEI and just came in yesterday. The stamps are from Unity (you may not recognize them because I colored in the images to create the silhouette effect) and I have just had them a few weeks..the bird has never even been inky!

It looks like DH will be deploying again so I am starting now to create a stockpile of Missing You cards. :o(

Supplies used:
*Unity Stamp Co. Love Birdies
*SEI Mimosa Paper
*Zig Writer
*American Crafts brads
~Girl's Night Out...Split Negative Technique~

Supplies used:
*Unity Stamp Co. Ladies Night
*MM paper (white/black background)
*K&Co. paper (pink)
*StazOn white and black

~Long Lost Shoe Stamp...Using an old forgotten stamp~

I bought this stamp 8 years ago when I was a CTMH demo...I NEVER bought anyone else's stamps, but I loved this one and had to have it. I think that I only used it once or twice...BUT I do still LOVE IT! Thanks for the reminder to dig it out of the corner of the drawer, Natalie!

Supplies used:
*Art Impressions Shoe stamp
*MME papers
*old dictionary paper
*lace trim

~My Friend...Using Inchie technique~

Supplies used:
*CHF Inchie Style
*Unity Little Buggers (sentiment)
*MME papers
*MM paperclip

~Buttercup's Travels...A Card inspired by The Princess Bride~

Just about everything on here relates in some way to the Princess Bride. Because the heroine's name was Buttercup, the first thing that I knew that I would use would be some butter yellow paper. "As you wish" is such a famous quote from the Princess Bride, that I knew that I needed to use the Wish Sticks stamp (dandelions) from Unity Stamp Co. Finally, the travel quote (it says, "All journeys have secret destinations of which the traveler is unaware.") relates to the overall story of the movie as they go on a great journey. I had fun with this one...thanks so much Christy...I am seriously digging out this movie today to watch while I stamp!

Supplies used:
*Unity Stamp Co. Wish Sticks
*Unity Stamp Co. Enjoy Your Story...Laugh
*Basic Grey papers
*Martha Stewart border punch
*black brads

I so love the vintage look of the shoe card! Thank you!

So sorry too for your sweetie to be leaving. I am sure you will miss him terribly. My DH only goes for a week at a time and my heart aches...I can only imagine what you must feel.

Thoughts and prayers....Cindy
