Watercooler Wednesday Challenges #72

Hello and welcome to this week's Watercooler Wednesday Challenge.  The new 2016-2018 In Colors are fabulous and this color challenge from Jean has us using those new In Colors.  At first I wasn't too sure about a couple of the colors but I've decided that I like them all.

For the card base, I used the neutral color Crumb Cake.  I used a piece of Whisper White that had already been embossed using the Brick Wall Embossing Folder and cut an oval from the retired Oval Collections Framelits Dies.  In the grooves I added some Wink of Stella Clear but it doesn't show up well.

On a separate layer of Whisper White, I stamped an image from the Work of Art stamp set in three of the new In Colors; Dapper Denim, Flirty Flamingo and Peekaboo Peach inks.  The sentiment is from the Trust God stamp set and stamped using Basic Black Archival ink.

The leaves are punched from Emerald Envy using the retired Bird Builder Punch.  The little flowers are punched from Peekaboo Peach and Sweet Sugarplum using the Petite Petals Punch.  Then, I added a Rhinestone Basic Jewel to the center of each flower.

For all the challenge details and to share your project, visit Watercooler Wednesday Challenges.  We'd love to have you join us.

Thanks for stopping in at the Coffee Pot Stamping Cafe,



  1. Marsha I really like this card. Those bold swipes of colour behind the brick wall are awesome! Thanks for sharing.
