Watercooler Wednesday #112, Anything Goes

Happy Wednesday!

Having a creative morning so far? Well, Watercooler Wednesday has a new challenge that might spark your creativity!

As you can see, we have an ‘Anything Goes’ challenge! Which means, whatever you’re working on right now – you can enter it in our challenge! How fun is that?

I created something specifically for the challenge here –

ibbystamps, stampin up, Avant Garden, Carried Away DSP, Stitched Shapes Framelits, WWC112, Sale-a-Bration

As Sale-a-bration is winding down, a few more ink ups on this wonderful Avant Garden stamp set, and this lovely, versatile Carried Away Designer Series paper, DSP.

My flowers I inked up once and stamped three times to get this lovely look. And, yes, I hand cut them out.

Greeting is stamped full strength. I tied everything up with the Basic Black Baker’s Twine. This time on the right side to be a little different. Very serene, but elegant.

Someone decided I wasn’t paying enough attention to them! She decided to join the photoshoot! Who doesn’t just love kitty paws!?!?!?!? And, look at that tail – so precarious!

Happy Spring Equinox

That’s right!Happy Spring (more like summer here in Texas though)!

…..and why mark the occasion with a card??

libbystamps, stampin up, Happy Celebrations, Layered Alphabet Stamp Set, Basket Bunch, Basket Builder Framelits, Basket Bunch Bundle, Carried Away DSP, Spring

You know me and my love of paper crafting! And, my pile of unused dies cuts…..

So, I try to use them and create something with them.

This is really just a fun card. The random flowers are my favorite part! Going with a nice retiring Cucumber Crush card base really helped the ‘spring’ stand out.

This non-Easter card shows the versatility of both the Basket Bunch and the Happy Celebration stamp sets! Worked quite nicely with the Carried Away DSP (FREE during Sale-a-Bration).

Luckily, today it IS a beautiful spring day. Guess I can go enjoy it myself now!

Happy Stampin’

Taco ’bout an Awesome Card!

This is something I’ve wanted to do the entire time this Tasty Trucks stamp set has been out! Make a card on Taco Tuesday!

I had the perfect inspiration from Paper Play Sketches

I have never played along with their challenges but I’ve pinned several – they have great layouts!

This just struck me to create this –

libbystamps, stampin up, Carried Away DSP, Tasty Truck, Taco Tuesday

So cute!!!

I used some free DSP from Sale-a-Bration and of course, the stamp set, Tasty Trucks, was another freebie!

Surprisingly, this little guy cuts out rather quickly! I did not have time to stamp another one in Whisper White, this Very Vanilla worked just fine for the windows! It turned adorable none-the-less!

If you need any stamp supplies, please contact me, or shop my online store!

I’d love to hear from you either way!

Stylish Wish Birthday

I have a fun and bright birthday wish today for try Stampin’ on Tuesday.

We have a new challenge –

Challenge #309. Optional Theme : I Wish…..

This is what I created –

libbystamps, stampin up, Better Together, Stylish Stems Framelits, Carried Away DSP, Sale-a-Bration 2017, sab, TSOT#309

Nice. Bold. Bright!

I combined three different product lines here : the 2016-2017 Idea Book and Catalog, the 2017 Occasions Mini and the 2017 Sale-a-bration catalog!

libbystamps, stampin up, Better Together, Stylish Stems Framelits, Carried Away DSP, Sale-a-Bration 2017, sab, TSOT#309

Altogether, they created a wonderfully bright fun card! These focal points are from the mini. I punched out circles and then die cut them.

libbystamps, stampin up, Better Together, Stylish Stems Framelits, Carried Away DSP, Sale-a-Bration 2017, sab, TSOT#309

This sentiment is from a great collection of several sentiments, Better Together. (When I decided what color to stamp it in, I debated between the Memento and Basic Grey, Looks like I should have gone with the Memento…oh well…)

In person this is a really fun card! What do you think? I’d love to read your comments!

And, you can see what our design team created on our blog or our Facebook page. You can also play long in either place too!

Happy Stampin’
