VCMP The final five!

I am pleased to report that I completed all the challenges!

#6.  Linda started the day off with making cards with wheels--lots of options with this challenge.
 I checked out the new-to-me Cricut CTMH Artiste and found something a little different.

#7. Jen got me thinking about caffeine! And I am running low on Diet Pepsi! Oh no!   I am not a coffee drinker but I know I am in the minority- and  this Stamps of Life set I had not tried

#8. Donna got us wishing we all had lots of washi tape!  I have some- mostly from the SSS monthly kits- but I also just got a few sheets from LifeStyle Crafts and some great new dies! Except for the black, mat, the sentiment and the card base- it is all washi! I adhered strips of some from the colors I had on hand to white cardstock then ran it thru the my Big Kick.

#9. Sharon inspired us with white- all white- nothing but white! So very hard to get the details in the picture but this may be my favorite card of all. No sentiment-just layers of embossing, a Spellbinders die, Sizzix butterfly dies and some old ribbon. Oh-and 3 velvet brads- love the textures!

#10. And for the final challenge- Kaylee is looking for glitz and glam but without the glitter! I went thru my stash for the shiniest paper I could find! The blue stars paper is holographic and the silver is paper but looks like metal! Create a Critter was used for the die cut stars, old ribbon in my stash- and shine galore!!! Really hard to photograph!

And finally- my card for Marlene's Sunday sketch, the little monster is on an action wobble- so he- yup- he rocks!


My dilemma for today-- I have not heard from the winner of my blog hop candy--- so I am thinking I will need to draw another name-what do you all think? It has been about 10 days since I tried to get in touch with the winner....

I am hoping I can find time later today to check out Paula's tutorial on focal points!
Have a wonderful day, thanks for stopping by -and as always, craft on!


  1. Wow! Your ferris wheel card is awesome, very clever! I confess I'm not a coffee drinker either... Diet coke is my vice! I like your caffeine card a lot with the bling. Thanks for playing in my challenge!

  2. Wonderful set of cards, Diane! I love the Ferris wheel! So fun! And I love the die cuts behind the washi tape. Really sets it off nicely and gives dimension to the card! Thanks for joining in my washi tape challenge! Good luck with the drawing.

  3. Diane,

    What a wonderful group of cards! I especially love the sentiment on the Ferris wheel card and the intricacy of the glitz and glam card.

  4. I love your white on white card challenge entry. It is so beautiful and you really can see all the details. Great work with all the challenges.

  5. Diane - You did an outstanding job on all of your challenges. Your Ferris wheel card is adorable - really love the sentiment. Love the coffee cup -- makes me want to get my Mocha at SB. LOL I am impressed what you did with Washi tape -- I've not made any cards with tape until this challenge. I only had the one little roll. Your white card is beautiful - I like how it turned out -- just perfect without a sentiment. I do like all of your layers -- glad you like your card. Your glitz and glam card makes a great hero card. Your sketch card is so cute - love the little monster and it is cute that he rocks. Thanks for participating in all the challenges. Wonderful group of cards.

    Sharon S.

  6. Awesome set of cards! The coffee card is one of my the diagonals on the background and the cup is just cute as can be. Also your all white card is uber gorgeous! I was so insprired that I purchased that embossing folder last nite! Thanks for playing in the Things with Wheel challenge!

  7. All are awesome, but your white on white is the best!!

    Thanks for playing along with my part of OWH VCMP.

  8. You are a crafting machine but I can't get over how gorgeous your white on white card is...wowzers!

  9. Wow, you not only completed the challenges, but you nailed them all. Great work on the last challenge, I love the patriotic theme and all the shine from the foil paper and ribbon. Wonderful! Thanks for joining the VCMP 'Glitz and Glam' challenge.

  10. Hi Diane,
    I'd love to talk with you about using one of your cards as a future sample for our OWH Midweek Throwdown challenge. You can contact me at gonestampin(at)gmail(dot)com
