It's a New Watercooler Challenge

The challenge this week is to CASE (Copy And Share Everything) a project from the new 2014-2015 Annual Catalog.  The project I chose to CASE can be found on page 158 of the Annual Catalog.  It's the one on the upper left.  As you can see, I changed things up a bit.  CASE-ing doesn't necessarily mean you have to make an exact duplicate of the design.

One of the new 2014-2016 In Colors that I really like is Tangelo Twist.  Honestly?  That really surprised me as I really don't like orange but there is something about this one that just reached out and grabbed me.  I also wondered how it would look paired with Blackberry Bliss, another of the new colors.  Now I know.  I must say that I like the two together.  Wonders never cease!

Stamp Sets:  Petite Petals, Work of Art (Stampin' Up!); Inks:  Tangelo Twist, VersaMark (Stampin' Up!); Card Stock:  Blackberry Bliss, Moonlight Designer Series Paper Stack, Tangelo Twist, Whisper White (Stampin' Up!); Accessories & Tools:  Bird Builder Punch, Petite Petals Punch, White Embossing Powder, Whisper White Baker's Twine, Mini Glue Dots (Stampin' Up!)

The Whisper White Baker's Twine really look blah when I put it on the card.  Before I attached it to the card, I sponged some Tangelo Twist over it and gave it a new look.  It was just the right touch of color to keep the little bow from blending in to the point of invisible.

You can find all the details and play along with the Watercooler Challenges HERE.


Thanks for stopping in at the Coffee Pot Stamping Cafe,



  1. Hi Marsha, thanks so much for joining the Challenge. I went through the same thought processes about the Tangelo Twist and agree that it's surprising that it compliments the Blackberry Bliss so nicely. Actually I think the bits of Moonlight DSP help with that. It's a beautiful card and certainly catches one's eye.

  2. OOOOOH!!! Marsha, I really like this! I love Tangelo Twist, too - and Blackberry Bliss. Great CASE!!!

  3. great CASE marsha, and thank you for joining.
