VSN Winter Olympics Part 2

In my previous post, I shared 5 of the 16 challenges. Today I am sharing a few more of the challenge cards from the VSN weekend over at SCS.

Saturday's VSN Challenges

"Winners Podium" Challenge
The winning Olympic athletes stand on a podium to accept their medal and be honored for their achievements. The challenge was to make a Free Standing Pop-Up Card to represent the winner standing tall and proud on the winner's podium.
My Card for the "Winners Podium" Challenge....

"On The Waterfront" Challenge
Vancouver, the host city of the 2010 Olympics Winter games, is not only a busy seaport but recreational activities involving water abound. The challenge was to make a card that incorporates water as a theme.
My card for the "On The Waterfront" Challenge....



















To create my "water" feature: I took three strips of Ballet Blue cardstock, punched each with the Scallop Edge Punch, then rubbed the White Craft Ink pad over the edges, then rubbed each with my finger to blend. I crumpled each strip to give it a worn look, then mounted it with Dimensionals for a shadow effect.

Stamps: Inspired by Nature, Teeny Tiny Wishes, Itty Bitty Backgrounds Paper: Kraft, Old Olive, Ballet Blue, Chocolate Chip, Very Vanilla Ink: Old Olive, Mellow Moss, Chocolate Chip, White Craft Access: Scallop Edge Punch, Horizontal Slot Punch, Small & Large Oval Punches, Chocolate Chip 5/8" Grosgrain Ribbon, Chocolate Chip Epoxy Brads, Paper Piercing Tool and Mat Set, Dimensionals


"Interview With The Glitterati" Challenge
A big part of the Olympics are the personal interviews and the participants in their brightly colored costumes. The challenge was to glitter up your image, glitter the entire image in loose glitter! No Stickles or Glitter Pens allowed.
My card for the "Interview with the Glitterati" Challenge.....

To Create the Glitter Panel: Stamp a bold image onto pre-cut Whisper White panel, ink the entire panel with Versamark Ink, cover the entire panel with Heat-n-Stick powder, tap off excess powder and heat with Embossing Heat Tool until shiny, immediately add Dazzling Diamonds Glitter over the entire surface, tap off excess and set aside to dry.


"I Believe" Sketch Challenge
The theme song of the 2010 Winter Games is "I Believe", so this challenge will honor the thousands of musicians who take part in the games, playing a pivotal role in entertaining the fans and athletes. Include these three elements as part of the challenge:
1. Include a musical element on your creation
2. Follow the sketch provided
3. Give a little love to the INSIDE of the card!
