Wacky Watercooler January Mini Blog Hop Number Two


Welcome to the second Wacky Watercooler Blog Hop of the 2016.  We're here again to show off some of the great new projects from 2016 Occasions Catalog and the 2016 Sale-A-Bration Brochure.  The Watercooler gals have lots of fantastic projects to share with you.

My first project features the Honeycomb Happiness stamp set from the Sale-A-Bration Brochure.  It's found on page 15.  I totally love this little chick.  It reminds me of all the soft, fluffy baby chicks that my grandmother raised.  So cute!

The card base is Whisper White Thick.  I stamped the chick and the balloon images with StazOn onto the Whisper White then, stamped the balloon on a scrap from the Cherry On Top Designer Series Stack and the chick onto Daffodil Delight.  I fussy cut the chick and balloon and placed those pieces on the images stamped on the card base.  For the ribbon on balloon and the beak and feet on the chick, I used a Calypso Coral Stampin' Write Marker.  The sentiment is from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set.


For my second card, I needed a touch of spring given it's been so cold and snowy here.  I love to sit on a park bench and simply enjoy the day.

The card base is Marina Mist to which I added a layer of patterned from Botanical Gardens Designer Series Paper.  I stamped the image from the Happy Home stamp set found on page 21 of the Occasions Catalog in StazOn onto Whisper White.  I sponged a bit of Soft Sky and Pear Pizzazz over it and overlaid it with a window cut from Marina Mist using the Hearth & Home Framelits Dies.  The sentiment is also from the Happy Home stamp set.  I then added a few Garden Green Candy Dots.

  1. Marsha, both projects are great. The bird is just darling and the window turned landscape offers a really nice perspective.

  6. Very fun cards Miss Marsha. You're slowly but surely converting me to that yellow chick. LOL
    What a wonderful idea to turn the window on its side. First time I think I've seen that. Thanks for sharing the inspiration. Hugs and love - J.

    1. Thanks, Jean! Fluffy yellow chicks were always fun at Easter. Grandma would let us play with them for short periods of time. They were so small and soft.

  7. As I listen to the rain pour down outside, I get a glimmer of spring-to-come looking at your cards. Sweet little chick with his fun balloon, and a pretty scene through a window. Lovely!

  8. Hi Marsha, thanks for being part of our wonderful blog hop. I love that chick! I think it's perfect for so many occasions, including a birth announcement, birthday card, or, as in your case, an Easter card. That's what attracted me to that set from the beginning, its versatility. You've really made that chick and balloon "pop" by keeping it clean and simple. All focus is on the images. Love that---and the additional bling doesn't hurt, either. I wouldn't have though to use the window frame on its side but it works. And it means that all cards with that window don't have to be vertical any longer. Thanks for the idea. The view out that window to the bench seems so spring-like. What a nice treat it would be sitting there and seeing grass instead of all our snow.

    1. Thanks, Heidi! I plan to use that little chick for a variety of occasions. He's just cute. I wanted more of a picture window rather than a tall window. I think it showcases the stamp set better.
