WWC242 - Marsha's "All ABout Occasions" Challenge

The Toile Christmas stamp set and dies are my favorites from Stampin' Up!'s Holiday Catalog.  It is such a realistic cardinal and such fun to color.  It was perfect for this weeks' Watercooler Wednesday Challenge.  I'm hosting the "All About Occasions" challenge and I've been working on Christmas cards.

A Day Spent Stamping

Now that's my kind of day.  Saturday was World Card Making Day and I was busy making lots of cards and celebrating my oldest son's birthday.  Here is just one of those that I made.  The Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper is one of my favorites.  When you see it up close you can actually see the brush strokes on the canvas.  It is so realistic.


Stamps Sets:  Very Versailles (Stampin' Up!); Simple Strips-Friendship (Taylored Expressions)
Inks:  Soft Sea Foam, Mossy Meadow (Stampin' Up!);  Jet Black (Altenew)
Cardstock:  Whisper White, Mossy Meadow (Stampin' Up!)
Patterned Paper:  Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper (Stampin' Up!)
Dies:  Simple Strips Dies (Taylored Expressions)
Other:  Pearl Basic Jewels (Stampin' Up!)

I am entering my card into the Just Us Girls Challenge.  For all the challenge details and to share your project, click the image below.

WWC241 - Dawn's Feminine "Anything Goes" Challenge

Hello everyone and welcome to another Watercooler Wednesday Challenge.  This week Dawn is hosting our ever popular Feminine "Anything Goes" challenge.

One of the things I enjoy doing is creating my own backgrounds.  Over the next few challenges you will see several that I created using various stamps and inks.  They are all floral and I kept them very simple.  I only added a sentiment strip and no other embellishment.  I wanted that cheerful background to really stand out.


Stamps:  Floral Elements (Altenew);  Simply Strips - Friendship (Taylored Expressions)
Inks:  Rich Razzleberry, Flirty Flamingo, Pear Pizzazz, Grapefruit Grove (Stampin' Up!); Oreo (Taylored Expressions)
Cardstock:  Whisper White, Flirty Flamingo (Stampin' Up!)
Dies:  Simple Strips (Taylored Expressions)
