Watercooler Wednesday 132 – Marsha’s Masculine Anything Goes Challenge

Week is halfway done. Time for a Watercooler Wednesday challenge!

Theme this week as you can see, masculine!

I always seem to gravitate towards simple, clean, darker colors.This is what I designed –

libbystamps, stampin up, Happy Celebrations, Banners for You, Bunch of Banners Framelits, Wood Textures DSP, WWC

I started with stamping the ‘happy’ sentiment on the Wood Textures paper. I just built the card from there. Adding elements such as the stamped party hats and then the adding the presents as I went along. It just needed a little something at each step.

And, it’s not too overdone. You agree?

Need a little more inspiration? Well, check out our Watercooler Wednesday blog. Some great ideas that everyone came up with. You can also link your creation to our challenge there as well.

Supplies –

  • Stamp Set – Happy Celebrations, Banners for You
  • Framelits – Bunch of Banners
  • Card Stock – Crumb Cake, Dapper Denim, Real Red, Very Vanilla
  • Ink – Dapper Denim, Real Red, Very Vanilla
  • DSP – Wood Textures
Happy Stampin’

Daisy, Congrats to You!

Hello stampin’ friends! Time to share a card I created for Create with Connie and Mary  and our newest color challenge that started today!

I pulled out the card stocks as a starting point. I always do with color inspirations.

After plying around with a few different ideas…..I settled on this –

libbystamps, stampin up, 2017-2018 Catalog, Banners For You, Bunch of Banners Framelits, Color Theory DSP, Daisy Punch, 1/2 Circle Punch, CCMC

Super adorable in person! The color balance is really nice here. You need it with these deep tones.

libbystamps, stampin up, 2017-2018 Catalog, Banners For You, Bunch of Banners Framelits, Color Theory DSP, Daisy Punch, 1/2 Circle Punch, CCMC

The Color Theory Designer Series 6×6 Paper Stack really help that balance of color. I couldn’t resist using the Daisy Punch either. I added a tiny ‘stem’ partially up next to the Designer Series Paper.

The leaves are from the Banners For You stamp set as well the sentiment and, of course, the banner!

This came together so nicely, I think I’ll have this on the Card Buffet this Sunday!

Did I inspire you with my colorful card? The Design Team did a great job with the colors this week. Check out their cards at Create with Connie and Mary .
