Again with the VSN Challenges

I continue on with the VSN challenges today... my flu is about gone, just a headache remains - YEAH!!! I knocked out two more before I have to run some errands today. I have to go get the furry creatures some food, and I need to check out a fridge for the basement bar. My parents are coming next weekend, so my dad will help me carry it downstairs... I just need to pick it out before hand. Anyway, to the stamping...
The 3rd VSN challenge, as I eluded to last night, was to use a stamp set that you don't really like, or bought and never really used. I had a set that fit both bills - Brocade Basics had never seen ink, and Tagger's Dozen has rarely seen ink since their entry in my house. I also haven't used my small tag punch, slot punch, real red embossing powder, In Color CS, or my Riding Hood Red tafetta ribbon, so they seemed like they should be included too. I had a slight mishap with the embossing powder, but I think the card still turned out ok.
Stamp Sets: Brocade Basics, Tagger's Dozen
Ink: VersaMark
Paper: Basic Black, Tangerine Tango, Pacific Point
Accessories: Iridescent Ice, Real Red, & White embossing powder, Riding Hood Red tafetta ribbon
Punches: Crop-a-Dile (to make stay put bow), Small Tag, Tag

The next card was for the 5th challenge, which was to make a monochomatic card. Since this VSN is all about love, I HAD to use blue for my one color. When I started looking, I couldn't believe just how many things I had in blue. Holy cow! I guess I really DO love blue... I had to cut some colors to make a card under 10-lbs. The sketch for this card was Sketch Challenge # 209 btw... I really like that one!
Stamp Sets: Simple Friendship, Thoughts & Prayers (both new!!!)
Ink: Brilliant Blue, Night of Navy, VersaMark
Paper: Brocade Blue, Night of Navy, Baja Breeze, Whisper White (butterfly stamped on there) Not Quite Navy Prints DSP
Accessories: Bashful Blue striped grosgrain, Stampin' Dimensionals
Punch: Crop-a-Dile (for stay put bow)
And, I even used a Butterfly, which starts with B... well, gotta get the creatures food... more later....
