Welcome! I'm so glad you have joined us on our journey through March Madness! There are many ways you can interpret that and I'm sure you're going to see a bit of "mad" that will have you wanting to dabble in the "madness," too!
This month I have the honor of being first stop on our Hop, but no worries if you came here from somewhere else. The Hop goes round and round, so no matter where you start, as long as you keep clicking on the "Next" button, you'll go through all the participating blogs. If you get a little lost along the way, just click the “Home” button and head back to the Wacky Watercooler Blog home page to start all over.
My first card is one I made for a Birthday Shoebox Swap for my local demonstrator meeting. It uses product from the Annual Catalog and two Sale-A-Bration stamp sets, Big Day and Nature's Perfection. Those sets are only available until March 31. It's a clean and simple design that has you wanting to reach out and pick some pretty Strawberry Slush flowers.
Stamp Sets: Big Day, Nature's Perfection; Inks: Pacific Point, Wild Wasabi; Card Stock: Pacific Point, Strawberry Slush, Whisper White; Accessories & Tools: Glue Dots, Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack, Pearl Basic Jewels, SNAIL Adhesive, Stampin' Trimmer
One of the cards we made in the Shoebox Swap was this spinner card using the Bow Builder Punch from the Occasions Catalog. I had never made one before and love how that bright bow slides back and forth and spins while doing so. Clever! I think my oldest granddaughter will like this one for her birthday in May. The stamp set is Big Day from Sale-A-Bration. All other product can be found in the Annual Catalog.
Stamp Set: Big Day; Ink: Tempting Turquoise; Card Stock: Sweet Taffy Designer Series Paper, Tempting Turquoise, Whisper White; Accessories & Tools: Boho Blossom Punch, Bow Builder Punch, Brights Candy Dots, Dimensionals, Glue Dots, Pennies, SNAIL Adhesive, Word Window Punch
And I saved the best for last. Well, so I say. :-) For this hop, we hoppers were all to make a fun fold card. I chose to make a Dutch Fold card. I found a tutorial from Beccy that was easy to follow and I just had to make one adjustment. When I cut the first piece, it was too narrow to match well with the second piece. I adjusted the measurement from 3-3/8" to 4-15/16" and it was perfect.
Stamp Set: Big Day; Inks: Jet Black StazOn, Pistachio Pudding; Stampin' Write Markers: Daffodil Delight, Pink Pirouette; Card Stock: All Abloom Designer Series Paper Stack, Blushing Bride, Whisper White; Accessories & Tools: 2013-2015 In Colors Sequin Assortment, Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine, Dimensionals, Multipurpose Liquid Glue, Pearl Basic Jewels, SNAIL Adhesive, Stampin' Trimmer
Here's a look at what the inside of the card looks like.
Your next moment of madness comes from Anna Smith. This is her first time joining us on our hop, so please give her a warm welcome. She is a very talented artist and I love her work.
