OWH VCMP Labor Day Weekend

OWH's Stars and Stamps blog is having a Virtual Card-Making Party this Labor Day weekend with challenges being posted throughout the weekend. Here are the cards I've finished for the challenges so far......along with the Dynamic Duo's #18 challenge too.
This is for Challenge 1 which is sponsored by ODBD and we're to use scripture or an uplifting quote or sentiment on our cards.

This is for challenge 2 where Cherie challenges us to use a recipe of 1 image, 2 patterned papers and 3 words.

For challenge #3, Cindy challenged us to use snowflakes on our cards, but not for Christmas.

This card was made for challenge 4 where Donna challenged us to try the triple time stamping technique. I used the colors for the Dynamic Duo's #18 challenge using Poppy Parade, and a comparable green color (since I don't have any Lucky Limeade ink or cardstock).

This is for challenge 5 where Sandy challenges us to make a western (cowboy or horse) card.

Hopefully I'll be able to complete a few more of the challenges today!
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you're all enjoying a great weekend!

Carol, I like all your cards, but my favorite is for challenge #2 with the bunny, cute!

You have done it again! I love when you play this kind of challenge, because you really get the juices flowing! They are all fantastic!

All your cards are wonderful! The one I keep going back to look at the most is the first one. I love, love, love what you did with the chicken wire!!!! Awesome!! I have that stamp and it's been very lonesome because I haven't used it since I bought it about 3 years ago. I would have never thought to use it with flowers the way you did. What a great idea!!! You're always an inspiration!

Donna Inks said...

Love your cards! Great use of Poppy Parade! Thank you for playing along on the VCMP!

Donna Hanley said...

You and your creative juices always seem to amaze me. Each one of these cards are perfect for their challenges.
I really need to get my hands on that chicken wire stamp. I've admired it way too long without purchasing it. I'm off to do some buying this afternoon. I hope your afternoon is full of fun. I know you did some cooking and if I could make it to your house in time for dinner, I'd be there.

Such pretty cards Carol. Especially love the first one with the lovely flower image and sponging. The snowflake card is so elegant. The embossing looks great.

Dixie Cochran said...

Carol, you are rocking the challenges this weekend! I think the bunny card is my favorite. That background paper is perfect for the image.
Well done! On ALL of them!!

UNREAL!!! Carol, I just don't see how you can keep cranking out wonderful cards like this! It'd take me a week just to think of how I wanted to do one of them!
All are so pretty! I really like the chicken wire background on the first card - will have to CASE this! So lovely.


Cherie said...

That bunny is adorable, Carol! Those papers really pull together with the image colors, too. Thanks for playing along!

Fabulous selection of cards. Like your take on the Triple Time card for Dynamic Duos, thanks for joining us this week.

Lee Mae said...

Carol, your cards are fabulous! I really like the stamped images with the sentiments stamped alongside, and the triple-stamped card is wonderful - love the stamp you chose to use. The rabbit and cowboy card are adorable too. Love them all!

Fun cards! Thanks for playing with us at Dynamic Duos!

Such a lot of good work going on here Carol! The layered card you created for our challenge is beautiful! I need to try that technique! Thanks for playing with us at Dynamic Duos!
