This is the last post sharing my Virtual Stamp Night cards created.
The hostess has two boys. She asked them what is their favorite thing to do at the park and they told her “Sports!” So the challenge was to make a sport themed card. I do not send a lot of sports cards, so I own few stamps that are considered sports. I found the basketball player, Curious George on the ball, and the weight lifter. I colored each of these images with alcohol markers. I used the greeting from Fred Said, based on Fred Rogers and his sayings, for the card front. In the end, I like the card.
This was a fun card to create. I had this idea pinned on Pinterest. The oval is watercolored with SU WC pencils. I dried it, then stamped my palm tree and greeting. The background was embossed with an SU folder. I added ribbon from my stash and called it good. I like this card.
The hostess said every park has a slide, so the idea was to use a diagonal to depict a slide. I chose to make the Double Triangle Fold technique card. I used patterned paper and the butterfly from Gina K Sending Love stamp set and paper. The cardstock is Jelly Bean Green from GKD. The patterned papers were cut and waiting to be used. I had the butterfly stamped and colored, so I fussy cut and placed it in the circle. I did emboss the butterfly triangle using a Darice folder. I like the card. It was posted to the MISTI challenge for March as it needed to be green.
I followed the sketch exactly. This card will be sent to someone who I am creating July 4 cards for. I used a very old SU set called Mini Messages with a date of 2004. The embossed background was created using an SU embossing folder.
I enjoyed creating these cards and following the challenge guidelines. I have participated before, but never completing all of the challenge cards. When all challenges are completed, they call the person a Virtuoso and prizes will be awarded. Thanks for reading these posts. I have learned how to schedule these posts. I am working on laundry while I sit at the computer typing these. Enjoy your day!

What a fantastic show of talent and accomplishment. Congrats on keeping up with the challenge and for learning how to schedule your posts. Hoot-hoot.
Thanks! I am liking the scheduling feature.
Great cards! Congrats on keeping up with the challenge – hope you win!
Thank you! I didn’t know prizes were going to be given till the other day. Only 3 people have completed all of the challenges where they linked them to the intended thread. That is kind of exciting!
WOW!! They are all great cards. I can just smell the ocean and feel the ocean breeze looking at the second one. You did a fantastic job on the challenge.
Thanks! That is an enjoyable card. I love tropical kind, especially when it is dreary looking out my window.
Lisa, I have loved seeing all the beautiful cards you created for your virtual stamp night. You have a wonderful imagination and the creativity to bring your ideas to life and follow the instructions/idea. The beach one is probably my favorite of these, but then I love the “sea” you created surrounding your island. Beautiful work!
Thank you! I really like the sea and the island one. They were all fun to create.
Another awesome group of card, Lisa, for your stamp event. The sports card tickles my funny bone. Great embossing folder for your beach scene. I love the butterflies and love the star theme on your patriotic card.
Thanks! They were all fun to create.
A wonderful group of cards showcasing your talents. Love them all but especially like the beach one.
Your sports themed card is adorable! Love your palm tree card with that wave texture behind your beautifully watercolored and stamped tropical scene. The papers and embossing on your double triangle fold card complement your butterfly so nicely. And the texture and bold, patriotic colors look great on the sketch you followed. Another great collection of cards for your stash!!
