Hello and welcome to the Wacky Watercooler June 2016 Blog Hop! As you may know, we have a new Annual Catalog full of some great new product. Our blog hop this month has us celebrating some of our favorites among the new product. Our favorite new In Color. Our favorite Stamp Set/Bundle. Our favorite Designer Series Paper. There is so much I like in this catalog that it was hard for me to finally narrow it down.
Our blog hop runs in a circular fashion so, no matter where you begin, you will eventually find yourself back where you started. Of course, that is not a bad thing. With eight participants, I'm sure you'll want to take more than one look at all the great projects we have created for you.
My first project is showcasing my favorite new 2016-2018 In Color, Dapper Denim. Yes, if it's blue then it's a favorite! I also added just a touch of Sweet Sugarplum as that runs a close second. Both the Dapper Denim and the Sweet Sugarplum inks were stamped off to give them a lighter, softer look.
Stamp Set: Jar of Love; Inks: Dapper Denim, Mint Macaron, Smoky Slate, Sweet Sugarplum; Cardstock: 2016-2017 In Colors Designer Series Paper Stack, Crumb Cake, Dapper Denim, Whisper White; Other: Everyday Jars Framelits Dies, Pearl Basic Jewels
The sketch I used for my card is from the Sunday Stamps Challenge. For all the challenge details, click the image below.
My next project showcases my favorite stamp set, Jar of Love and favorite dies, Everyday Jars Framelits Dies. There is so much that can be done with this bundle. I love those little lightning bugs. They bring back fond memories of childhood when we chased them all over the yard and put them in a jar. Before heading in for the night, we'd always let them go so they could go do whatever it is that lightning bugs do.
Stamp Set: Jar of Love; Inks: Basic Gray, Crushed Curry, Smoky Slate, StazOn Jet Black; Cardstock: Dapper Denim, Shimmery White; Other: Everyday Jars Framelits Dies, Rhinestone Basic Jewels, Silver Gelly Roll Pen
My third and final project showcases the Floral Boutique Designer Series Paper. I absolutely love Night of Navy and Whisper White together. And, in case you haven't noticed, I seem to have a blue theme running through all of my projects. What can I say? I so totally love blue that it's my go to color. It wasn't planned but, trust me, I can so live with it. :-) Oh, and let's not forget that fantastic Copper Embossing Powder. If you don't have it yet, you are definitely going to want to add it to your list.

Thanks for stopping in at the Coffee Pot Stamping Cafe,
Marsha, Dapper Denim is a great blue. You have made wonderful projects, I think the last card is my favorite.ReplyDelete
Nice cards! Thanks for choosing to use the Jar of Love set. I have it, but haven't tried making any projects with it yet. Now I have some inspiration! You're right, I do need to get some of the Copper Embossing Powder. Love your Swirly Scribbles card.ReplyDelete
I, too, used to catch fireflies in the summer evenings as a child--you brought back pleasant memories with that card. Your Swirly Scribbles card is the winner, though--love the sophistication of the copper on the navy and white!ReplyDelete
Marsha, I love your 'blue' theme! All of your projects are fabulous; I really like the Swirly Scribbles one, and the fireflies are so cute! :)ReplyDelete
Thanks, Deb! Blue, being my favorite color, is my go to color.Delete
Loved your story about the catch and release of your fireflies. That is a memory we share. Thanks for showing the versatility of the Jars of Love and matching dies. They're really inspiring. I do love your last card the most though. It's really wonderful! Thanks for sharing as always.ReplyDelete
Thanks, Penny! I have to agree on that last card, it's my favorite, too.Delete
Great projects Marsha! The Jars of Love bundle is on my wishlist - love how you've used them.ReplyDelete
Thanks, Gail. It was the one bundle I was hoping to be on the pre-order but no such luck. It was the first thing I put on my first June order. :-)Delete
Marsha I love the way you've used the Jar of Love to show off your favourtie colour. How funny that I guessed it would be the Dapper Denim. Your favourite bundle is the Jar of Love, of course. Love the card and the taller jar full of fireflies. Great story to go along with it, too!. You have a blue theme and it carries on with beautiful elegance for that third card. Adding the Whirly Birds and butterfly finishes the card of with a "wow".ReplyDelete
Thanks, Heidi! We've talked enough that you have me figured out. lol Blue is my go to color, for sure and how can you not love all the great stamps and dies from the Jar of Love bundle.Delete
I love all of your creations and Dapper Denim is delightful! I think Dapper Denim and Sweet Sugarplum look stellar together as shown in your beautiful thank you card. Thanks for joining us at Sunday Stamps!ReplyDelete
Thanks, Annette! The sketch was a great one. I like being able to layer the patterned paper so it doesn't overtake the whole card.Delete
Super cute Jar of Love card! I love the strip of hearts at the bottom. Thank for joining Sunday Stamps this week.ReplyDelete
Thanks, Heidi! There is a die in the set that has a line of hearts. Their size will be perfect for some shaker cards.Delete
Sweet Cards....I love that set too, Jar of Love....ReplyDelete
Thanks, Faith! Jar of Love was on the top of my list. It's going to be a lot of fun to use.Delete
