OWH VCMP - day 1 challenges

Happy Saturday! It is bright and sunny here in Wisconsin... cold though! We won't be outside much today.

Operation Write Home is having a virtual card making party (vcmp) this weekend for Presidents' Day, and for once we are home all weekend so I can play along. YAY! The first challenge is from Erika @ Scrappin Intervention, and it's to use zig zags.

I recently asked the OWH ladies which chevron die I should buy, and they recommended the MFT chevron die. LOVE it! :)

Challenge 2 is from Misty - and it's a kid card challenge using a creature! These kid stamps of mine are going to get a workout today. :)

I stayed with the chevron theme. Hey, the dies were still out! :)

I tried to lightly chalk the sky with blue, which didn't work as well as I had hoped, so I added clouds. I think it still works!

There's challenges all weekend long! You can play along at any time!

  2. Hi Jen,
    I love your card, your paper pieced monster is cute! Your new Chevron die layered like that made me think Oh Wow... I have the die set and have never done that. I learned something new from you today, thanks for the inspiration!

  4. So cute, I love the monster! The asymetrical elements give your card life, just the right amount of movement! TFS!

  7. Monsters with spots are the cutest! I like the way you used your chevron as an accent. Pat Kinkaid

  9. So fun Jen! I'm back to comment on your chevron card! Those dies look like so much fun. I was trying to resist, but apparently that is not working out for me. :) What a cute card!

  12. Your cards are precious and I love that die too! Will have to add that to my wish list! I think the sky turned out perfect but the clouds are a wonderful addition too! Great job!
