WWC #330 – Heidi’s Challenge: All About Occasions

Hello there, it’s time for another Watercooler Wednesday Challenge and Heidi is our host with an all about occasions challenge this fortnight!

I’m in desperate need of Christmas cards so chose that as my occasion for this challenge. I played with some Stampin Up DSP ‘Expressions of Ink’ and 2 trees from the ‘Whimsical Trees’ die set. The sentiment is from Uniquely Creative. My suite of cards was inspired by Su Mohr.

I ended up making a set of 8 cards, so here are the other 7!

Come join in the fun and make a card for an occasion of your choosing. Check out the projects that the other artists at Watercooler Wednesday Challenges have created, take the challenge and link your creation to the challenge post. We’d love to have you join us.  You have until Tuesday, 14th December at 9:00 Melbourne Time or Monday 13th December 5pm US Mountain Time to link up your project.

Thanks for looking and have a great day.

Just Add Ink #582

Hello there, it’s time for another Just Add Ink Challenge and do we have a great inspiration photo for you!

I was inspired by blackboard and the stockings hanging from the fireplace mantle. I created a z fold card, with blackboard looking background, a middle panel that looks like the fireplace mantle and then I stamped a few of the mice in stockings from the Hello Bluebird set ‘Joyful mouse’.

Fusion: White Christmas

Hello there, it’s time for our last Fusion Challenge for 2021 and do we have a great sketch and inspirational photo for you!

I was inspired by the sketch and followed the theme of Christmas for my card. I used a Cuttlebug embossing folder called ‘Numbers’ for my Stampin Up old olive background. I then die cut a series of Christmas lights from Stampin Up Cherry Cobler, Real Red and Poppy Parade cardstock and popped them up in the corner in place of the sketch circles. I opted for no sentiment as I wanted the embossed numbers to indicate the sentiment.

Come join in the fun and make a card based on the sketch, inspiration photo or fuse them together and play with both! Check out the projects that the other artists at Fusion have created, take the challenge and link your creation to the challenge post. We’d love to have you join us.  You have until Wednesday, 9th December at 7pm Melbourne Time or Tuesday 8th December 12pm US Pacific Time to link up your project.

Craft Roulette #88 with Allison Cope

I missed the live for this week’s Craft Roulette #88 but caught it on reply this morning.

Wowsers, what interesting and challenging options did the wheel throw up this time! Thanks to Mary for explaining a number of the options as I’d never hear of cornucopia or retiform!

  • Project – I used DSP from Stampin Up
  • Colours – The colours of the DSP look like a pretty basket of fruit
  • Element – I added the word celebrate
  • Random – I chopped the DSP into a variety of shapes and added washi tape across all the joins

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your weekend.

WWC #329 – Cathy’s Challenge: All Things Masculine

Hello there, it’s time for another Watercooler Wednesday Challenge and Cathy is our host with a masculine challenge this fortnight!

I recently got the new collection of Catherine Pooler Design inks and knew that 3 of them would be perfect for a masculine card. I used Dress Blues, Uptown and Martini with the PTI ‘Watercolor Wonder’ stamp set and a sentiment from the Stampin Up ‘Biggest Wish’ stamp set.

Aren’t these colours wonderfully vibrant?

GD at Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers #198 – N is for Naughty.

Well hello there. Today I am a guest designer over at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers as I was crowned Queen for the E is for Everything Pink

This new challenge is all about N is for Naughty.

I had the perfect idea for this challenge – using Stampin Up ‘Don’t Stop Believin’ and a sentiment I created on my PC. I stamped and coloured Santa with my Stampin Blends and added some puffy paint for the fur on his gloves, collar and hat. Then fussy cut him out and added him and the sentiment to a crumb cake card base.

I definately know which friend will be getting this card!

Come join in the fun and link up your card by Saturday 27th November 3pm (Melb time) or Friday 26th November 11:55pm (EST).

Thanks for stopping by; enjoy the rest of your day.

Just Add Ink #580 – Colour Challange

Hello there, it’s time for another Just Add Ink Challenge and do we have a great colour combo for you!

For my card I decided to do an embossed floral panel and than pick up the embossed areas with the blushing bride and evening evergreen inks. I then added a gold die cut sentiment and mounted on blushing bride and white cardstock and my card was done.

Fusion: Triangle Bells

Hello there, it’s time for another Fusion Challenge and do we have a great sketch and inspirational photo for you!

I fused the sketch and photo for my card. I die cut some glittery sleigh bells and attached them to some khaki ribbon on the left hand side of my card with some linen thread. I then added a sentiment from Uniquely Creative.
