Inukshuk Inspired!

This weekend is a VSN at Splitcoast. Wondering what that is? It stands for Virtual Stamp Night. It's a monthly event, I think, where hourly challenges are posted and guests are welcome to participate in as many or as few as they choose. I normally don't do much stamping on the weekends but last night was an exception. I forgot to mention that all challenges are Olympic themed so the Inukshuk symbol is the sketch for our first challenge.

I thought it would be tough at first but it didn't take long to figure something out. In fact, I used ALL scraps sitting on my desk! There is a time limit of 45 minutes for every card so I timed myself and this one took me 27 minutes once I started.
For the multicolored packages I stamped the image from Happy Moments (free with a $50 order right now!) three times, once on each color, then cut them out. The package was also stamped on the white paper so the ribbon shows up.

I used the Big Shot and Perfect Polka Dot Impressions folder on the Melon Mambo pieces at the bottom (stamped image first of course!) The two buttons have a little sliver of Melon Mambo paper to look like thread.

The Kiwi Kiss piece was on my desk- leftover from an old Simply Scrappin' Kit that I can't recall the name of.

Thanks for stopping by and checking it out! Maybe you'll go play along?!
