Hello and welcome to a new Wacky Watercooler Blog Hop. With so many of us experiencing massive snowfalls, ice and just plain all around bad weather, it seemed appropriate to have share a wee bit of Spring Fever with all of you. I know I'm ready to see some warm temperatures that stay around for more than an hour or two.
My first project is a CASE (Copy And Share Everything) of a design from Jackie Susnik. I fell in love with the simplicity of the design and loved how she brought it all together. I didn't have the same stamp or patterned paper she used so I used the 2013-2015 In Colors, which I will be sorry to see retired at the end of May, and the Butterfly Basics stamp set from the 2015 Occasions Catalog. For the flower, I used Pistachio Pudding and Coastal Cabana.
Stamp Sets: Butterfly Basics, Teeny Tiny Wishes; Inks: Coastal Cabana, Daffodil Delight, Pistachio Pudding, StazOn Black; Card Stock: Coastal Cabana, Stacked with Love Designer Series Paper Stack, Whisper White; Accessories & Tools: Blender Pen, Pearl Basic Jewels, SNAIL Adhesive
Here is Jackie's design.
For my next project, I CASEd the design found on page 18 of the 2015 Occasions Catalog. I've had the Painted Petals stamp set for a while now and have not taken the time to use it. I must say that I really do like it. Now that I've initiated it, I know I'll be using it more in future projects.
Stamp Set: Painted Petals; Inks: Old Olive, Rich Razzleberry, Sahara Sand, Tuxedo Black Memento; Card Stock: Rich Razzleberry, Whisper White; Accessories & Tools: SNAIL Adhesive, Stampin' Trimmer
My final project is a very simple little basket. I'm planning to make one for each of my grandchildren for May Day. I just might make them for my big kids, too! They like to get treats just like the younger ones. This is a project that we made at the January meeting of my local demo group. We get together every other month to swap, learn a new project or technique and talk a little business. It's an enjoyable time and a way to spend time with other crafty individuals. Of course, theirs will have some candy in them. I didn't have any on hand so I used some pretty silk flowers to fill my basket.
Stamp Set: Petal Potpourri; Inks: Bermuda Bay, Tangerine Tango; Card Stock: Moonlight Designer Series Paper Stack, Tangerine Tango, Whisper White; Accessories & Tools: Envelope Punch Board, Flower Medallion Punch, 7/8" Scallop Circle Punch, Pearl Basic Jewels, Sticky Strip, Glue Dots
