Best. Card. Ever. Watercooler. Wednesday. #111.

Ahhhh, time for great inspiration from Watercooler Wednesday!

Marsha chose a favorite for me.

Masculine theme. And, anything goes!

I guess I was thinking’ of the sweet hubs when I created this –

libbystamps, stampin up, Suite Sentiments, Urban Underground DSP, Hexagons Dynamic EF, Sunshine Wishes Thinlits, WWC, masculine

……because he is. The. Best. Guy. Ever.

It’s a lot of silver foil. It doesn’t photograph well. But. In person, awesome! I am totally a fan of this background! It’s one of those thicker embossing folders. I hadn’t used it yet…….story of a crafters life, right?

libbystamps, stampin up, Suite Sentiments, Urban Underground DSP, Hexagons Dynamic EF, Sunshine Wishes Thinlits, WWC, masculineThe heart was in my leftover box and it was just meant to be on this card! It’s bold. It’s balance. It was a scrap!

libbystamps, stampin up, Suite Sentiments, Urban Underground DSP, Hexagons Dynamic EF, Sunshine Wishes Thinlits, WWC, masculineThe stamp set is a great one too, Suite Sentiments! Lots and lots of variety. It’s on the last page of the Occasions mini and probably overlooked as that catalog has so many wonderful products in it!

Guy card just need to be simple and straight to the point.

It helps having an adorable stamp set and coordinating framelits! And, yes, DSP on hand too.

A little edgy. A lot of fun!

I do admit, I was stumped with which way I should go.

Ultimately, I decided with the same set i did yesterday. The Cool treats Bundle.

Simply a nice little birthday card.

Urban Happy for Watercooler Wednesday #107

What an awful few days for me.

Started Sunday at class where I began to lose my voice. Felt a little feverish and just not right. Then the coughing set in. Painful, raw coughing. Decided I might want to check it out. Upper Respiratory Infection. Yikes.

The cards must go on, late or not. It’s Wednesday and time Watercooler Wednesday challenge. Penny choose a Masculine Anything goes.

This is nice, Clean And Simple with sparkle theme??

I think I hit the mark here –

libbystamps, stampin up, Window Shopping, Window Box Thinlits, 3/8 Metallic Ribbon Combo Pack, WWC106

Nice, huh? Very sparklyE!

libbystamps, stampin up, Window Shopping, Window Box Thinlits, 3/8 Metallic Ribbon Combo Pack, WWC106

It was quite simple to create having this die cut focal point! I just stamped the birthday sentiment and placed glimmer paper between the layers so it would show through! How easy is that??

I’m Here for You, Watercooler Wednesday #104

Morning followers! You’ll be enjoying three posts from me today!

Post two is for Watercooler Wednesday!

We have a great go-to layout from Kathe –

15027727_10210445910319440_4430108612560069562_n

I love these type layouts!

I decided to create something for a friend who recently lost her mother –

libbystamps, stampin up, Here for You, Stylish Stems Framelits, Lots of Labels, Falling in Love DSP, WWC104

These cards are just as necessary as any other card. They are just not fun to make…..

libbystamps, stampin up, Here for You, Stylish Stems Framelits, Lots of Labels, Falling in Love DSP, WWC104

I am loving this flower from the Stylish Stems Framelits!!!!

TIP : I reduced the size of the Lots of Labels Framelit to accommodate the space. I shortened it about 1/4 on each end. I just ran it thought the Big Shot twice, sliding it down just a bit both times.

libbystamps, stampin up, Here for You, Stylish Stems Framelits, Lots of Labels, Falling in Love DSP, WWC104

It’s just a simple, elegant card that invokes lots of feeling. I’m not good at communication when a good friend looses a parent. But, I want her to know I care.

I hope I’ve inspired you with my card. We can always use these cards in our stash…..
