WWC#204 – Gail’s Masculine ‘Anything Goes’ Challenge

Hello there, it’s time for another Watercooler Wednesday Challenge.  The lovely Gail is our hostess this week with her Masculine Anything Goes Challenge. 

My hubby’s birthday is just around the corner, so I decided to make a birthday card for him using a Stampin up set from the new Occassions catalogue called ‘Geared Up Garage’. Not only are the stamps fabulous, but it has some amazing dies including these gears I’ve used on my card cut from silver foil cardstock.

Come join in the fun and make a masculine card. Check out the projects that the other artists at Watercooler Wednesday Challenges have created then take the challenge and link your creation to the challenge post. We’d love to have you join us.  You have until Wednesday, 22nd January at 10:00 Melbourne Time or Tuesday 5pm Mountain Time to link up your project.

Thanks for looking and have a great day.

So, onto my creation…….. I don’t have any Disney stamps but remember when I visited Disneyland back in the early 90s that every where I looked I saw Mickey and Minnie hats with ears; so I thought I’d create a birthday card featuring Minnie’s ears with her signature big bow.

I die cut 3 circles from black cardstock in 2 sizes to make her face and ears. I then die cut her bow using an old Stampin Up Bigz bow die from some spotty DSP. I created my star background piece using Stampin Up Poppy Parade ink and the star trio stamp from the Mama Elephant “Make a wish’ stamp set.

I heat embossed the sentiment from the same stamp set in white on Minnie’s face, glued all the pieces together and my card was done!

Next up in the hop is REBECCA. A

Here’s our line up in case you get lost along the way.

WWC#203 – Karen’s All About Occasions Challenge

Hello there, it’s time for another Watercooler Wednesday Challenge.  Karen is out lovely hostess today with an All About Occassions challenge.

I decided to play with my alcohol inks again, creating a background piece with wild plum, aqua and some silver Nuvo flakes. I stamped a sentiment from the MFT ‘Birthday Greeting’ stamp set. I then die cut the butterflies from the Stampin Up Butterfly gala bundle and tucked it inside the circle panel.

Come join in the fun and make a card for an occassion of your choice. Check out the projects that the other artists at Watercooler Wednesday Challenges have created then take the challenge and link your creation to the challenge post.

Sail Away

Sailing away is what I’d rather do than go back to work tomorrow, my 2 weeks leave has gone way to fast and I’m not ready to adult yet!

I found a little bit of time to get my craft on this morning while the rest of the house was still asleep.

I went to my challenge blog list for inspiration and found 4 that I wanted to play with and that the 1 card would suit:

I have been playing with my alcohol inks a lot lately and had a blue piece that was perfect for these challenges. I used a Stampin Up die that looks like waves and a sentiment from a set by Simon Says Stamp called ‘Sailing’. I used just a few of the leftover wave pieces which I adhered to a stitched die rectangle panel.

I can really feel the water in those waves. I love how this card turned out. Thanks for looking and have a great day.
