Watercooler Wednesday Challenge #152 - Kath's "All About Occasions" Challenge

Hi and Hello!  Wednesday has rolled around again and it's time for a new Watercooler Wednesday Challenge.  This week Kath is hosting our "All About Occasions" Challenge.  It can be any occasion of your choosing so that leaves the playing field wide open.

For my design this week I, for the very first time, made a Corner Pop Up Card.  It was a rather fun project to make.  There are so many possibilities with what you can add to the card.  I had a few things already made up so I mixed and match to get the final look.  You can find a great video from Dawn Griffith HERE.

For the daisies, I used my Delightful Daisies stamp set and matching Delightful Daisy Dies from Heartfelt Creations.  I stamped the flowers and leaf in Basic Black Archival and sponged the daisies with Sweet Sugarplum.  The centers are Taylored Expressions Lemon Meringue ink.  The leaf Old Olive and Wild Wasabi.

The patterned paper I used is the retired Succulent Garden Designer Series Paper by Stampin' Up!  I love that gingham check and, being that it's Sweet Sugarplum, it matched the daisies and card base perfectly.

The sentiment on the front of the card is from the Colorful Seasons stamp set and the one on the inside is from the retired Thankful Life stamp set.  Both are from Stampin' Up!  They were stamped using Taylored Expressions Poppy Seed ink.

  1. There's something about gingham that always makes me smile and your use of the Sweet Sugarplum gingham is no exception. What a delightful card, and what a neat surprise when you open it up. I've never tried a corner pop up card, but I think I'll be adding it my must do list. Thanks so much Marsha for sharing.

  3. Well Marsha, I've never seen a corner pop-up card before but now I'm going to have to try one. What a clever idea! Love your combination of colours and patterns. That Sweet Sugarplum is one of my favourites.

    1. Thanks, Heidi! They are fun to make and not difficult. As you know, I'm not much of a pink person but I do like a pink that has blue undertones.
