WWC265 - Marsha's Challenge: Anything Goes With a Feminine Twist

Hello everyone!  How are you all faring?  Me, I'm doing well but would really like to leave the house.  Due to my age and a couple of health concerns, I have been keeping myself away from all except those who live in the house with me.  I'm so thankful I have all of these wonderful craft supplies to keep me busy.  Stay cautious and stay safe!

The card I'm sharing to day is the one I designed for our February stamp club as it was my turn to do the projects.  We made our own patterned paper using the Thoughtful Blooms stamp set from Stampin' Up!  It's a simple floral design but it reminds me that Spring is here.  Even in these difficult times, beauty can be found all around us as the buds and blossoms of Spring begin to show themselves.



Be sure to check out all the wonderful inspiration from the Watercooler Artists.  Then, take the challenge and share your creation with us.  You can find all of our challenge details by clicking the image below.  You have until Monday, April 6th at 4:00 p.m. Pacific Daylight Time to link up your project.

Sending You A Big Hug

Today is my birthday.  I had not planned to spend it being stuck in the house but given it is the safest place for me to be during this trying time, I made a card to send to one of my grandsons.

First, I stenciled the grid onto the card base using my blender brushes.  I really like the way it looks with the brighter color I used on the feathers.  It was a simple card to put together and with mail nicely with no extra postage required.  I always like that.


I've entered my card into the following challenges.  For all the challenge details, click the image(s) below.

Wednesday is back and that means it's time for a new challenge at the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge.  This week Tristan is hosting our Anything Goes With a Masculine Twist challenge.

WWC262 - Marsha's Challenge: All About Occasions

It's Wednesday and you know what that means.  It's time for a new challenge at of the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge.  This week Marsha is hosting our All About Occasions challenge.

I like to have a stash of just a note or thinking of you cards on hand so whenever I think of someone, I already have a card made that I can send.  Many times there doesn't have to be a specific reason for sending a card other than you just might brighten that person's day without even knowing it.

This one was made using one of the panel cards from Taylored Expressions.  They are pre-printed panels that you can color on the borders and stamp.  What I like is that you can actually foil over the border and add just a bit of shine to the card.  They are the perfect for adding to a card base.


Stamp Set: Bubble Greetings (Taylored Expressions)
Ink: Oreo Premium Hybrid (Taylored Expressions)
Cardstock: Cookie Monster, Boxed in Basics (Taylored Expressions)
Other: Cookie Monster Enamel Dots (Taylored Expressions); Copic Markers
