It's A Vegas Buffet!

Thank you to Paula who suggested doing a challenge to get myself out of my stampers rut. I went to check out Splitcoast Stampers and what do I find? Today is a Mini VSN! (VSN is Virtual Stamp Night) Filled with great challenges that are just what I need to get my creative juices a nice push!

The theme for this VSN is Las Vegas, all of the challenge have a Vegas theme to them.

So far I have done 3 of the challenges. Here is the first one:

"No one starts a night on the town in Vegas on an empty stomach, now do they? We've got your famous Las Vegas Buffet-line right here! Who doesn't like to have a few choices on the entree and the side items, and I really love a good salad bar. But, let's be brutally honest here.... it's all about the dessert, isn't it? Cheesecake, creme brulee, cobblers, CARROT CAKE! MMMMM, MMMMM!Well, we'd be remiss if we didn't kick off Vegas night with a trip through the buffet line. Best thing about this one is that it's calorie free.

Bellie up to the Buffet!

Grab yourself: a main dish entree - favorite stamps set

a couple of side items - cardstock and ink

and head straight the dessert cart, girls. Our challenge to you is to choose at least 3 dessert items from the list and have at it. Show us what you've got when there are no calories to contend with. Buttons Brads GlitterDew DropsPunchesSewingRibbon EyeletsRhinestones Die Cuts, Whatever you can think of . . . . Accessorize it, baby"

So for my "Main Dish" I used one of my favorite sets, Garden Silhouettes. For my side items I have my cardstock (Tempting Turqouise, Chocolate Chip and Whisper White) along with Chocolate Chip Ink and Marker, Tempting Turqouise Ink and Marker.

For my Dessert I used my crafters tool kit, a needle and some thread to do some zig zag stitching, I also used 3 brads, and some ribbon.

I soooo agree with you on this stamp set! The stitching looks great....lovin' that more than the faux version these days:)

beautiful card ! Yay for your inspiration and that trip to the buffet didn't cost any calories! Love that stitching! (So you just poked the holes then hand stitched??? great idea - I HATE getting out my machine!~)
