I am so glad you are back to see the final part of my VSN Winter Olympic Challenge cards. I love to participate in these Virtual Stamp Night Challenges....the challenges are not only fun, but give you the opportunity to use many different stamps and supplies, also to do new techniques or to remind you of those that you haven't done recently.
cont'd: Saturday Challenges
"Bundled Up" Callenge
Whether bundling up to get to the venue or bundling up because we’ll be outside watching an event ~keeping warm is a must. So lets bundle up our cards and keep 'em warm and toasty!! The challenge is to "bundle" the card, ends must fold over each other-like a tri-fold card- and has to be wrapped at least twice by something…ribbon, twine,etc.
My tri-fold card for the "Bundled Up" Challenge
Stamps: Garden from the Heart
Paper: Night of Navy, Old Olive, Barely Banana, Whisper White, Night of Navy DSP (hostess)
Ink: Basic Black, Night of Navy; Markers: Creamy Caramel, Old Olive, Barely Banana
Access: Dimensionals, Eyelet Border Punch, Curly Label Punch, Paper Snips, Old Olive 5/8" Grosgrain Ribbon, Chocolate Chip Epoxy Brads
How to make my tri-fold card: I used a piece of 12 x 12 Cardstock; cut to 5-1/2" x 12"; scored at 4-1/4" and 8-5/8", then used the Eyelet border punch on the outside edge.
"Tickets Please" Challenge
To go to the Olympic Games, one of the most important things to take with you and have on you at all times is your tickets to the event!!! The challenge is to make something to hold your tickets so you won’t lose them – by making a pocket card.

Ink: Melon Mambo
Access: Gold Brads, Scallop Circle, Scallop Edge and Star Punches, Dimensionals, Corner Rounder, Paper Piercing Tool, Sticky Strip
"In Hot Water" Challenge
After waiting for 4 years between Olympic games, sometimes, you need an explanation of just what the event is, what are the rules, how do countries and athletes prepare? This challenge was a chance to scratch your head a little, to use an old technique that will seem very new to many, Tea Bag folding. It's one of the 'original' paper arts.
