Go Wild Virtual Crop at The Nook

From last Thursday till midnight today we've been hosting a Virtual Crop (VC) at the forum of My Scrapbook Nook. The theme is Go Wild and the Design Team came up with 29 challenges during these days. I prepared two card challenges.

The first one is Go Wild - Back to Nature. I challenged the forum members to create a card using neutral colors and/or natural materials. Here's my sample card for the challenge. I created my own patterned paper by stamping doilies on kraft cardstock with white ink. I love the kraft and white color combo. I used a die to cut the burlap frame.

Supplies: Cardstock: Bazzill Basics Paper (Kraft), Papertrey Ink (Stamper's Select White) | Clear stamps: My Mind's Ey (Stella & Rose Gertie "Girly"), Papertrey Ink (Turning a New Leaf, Asian Fusion) | Pearl, adhesive dots: Zva Creative (CR02CA127, AD01CB101) | Twine: May Arts | Ink: Papertrey Ink (Fresh Snow, Dark Chocolate) | Tools: Papertrey Ink (Mat Stack 1 Die, Limitless Layers: 1 3/4" Circles Collection), sewing machine | Other: burlap, Aleene's Tacky Glue

My second challenge was to Go Wild with Stamps and create a card using at least four different stamps. The Hello Luscious patterned papers from BasicGrey are part of the Nook's May Kit.

Supplies: Cardstock: Bazzill Basics Paper (Kraft, Straw) | Patterned paper: BasicGrey (Hello Luscious) | Clear stamps: Papertrey Ink (Polka Dots Basics II, Background Basics: Text Style II, Sending You, Blooming Button Bits) | Adhesive dots: Zva Creative (AD01CB101) | Twine: May Arts | Button: Papertrey Ink | Ink: Papertrey Ink (Fresh Snow, Dark Chocolate, Vintage Touch Tea Dye Duo) | Tools: Papertrey Ink (Sending You Collection, Beautiful Blooms II #1 Die Collection), sewing machine

The Nook's gallery is already filled with many gorgeous projects based on the challenges and I'm sure more projects will be uploaded in the next few hours.

Until next time.
