Watercooler Wednesday #121 – Anything Goes

Happy Wednesday everyone! Time for a wonderful challenge from Watercooler Wednesday!

As you can see, this week we have an ‘Anything Goes’ challenge. This is great after the week I’ve had!!

I chose to show off a card from my May Card Buffet

libbystamps, stampin up, Eastern Beauty, Eastern Beauty Bundle, Eastern Palace Specialty DSP, Eastern Medallions Thinlits, Layering Circles Framelits, WWC

It showcases a new product suite,Eastern Palace, that is available now and the products will be sold individually in the upcoming new catalog.

libbystamps, stampin up, Eastern Beauty, Eastern Beauty Bundle, Eastern Palace Specialty DSP, Eastern Medallions Thinlits, Layering Circles Framelits, WWCThe focal image was stamped in the two colors. I was able to use two dies and cut with one pass for the outer line and the inner semi-cut line! Pretty cool these dies.

This card also uses a new in-color too, Lemon Lime Twist!!!

Come see what the other designers created and join us this week! After all, ‘Anything Goes’ applies to just about any card you can make!

Supplies –

  • Stamp Set – Eastern Beauty
  • Framelits – Eastern Medallions, Layering Circles

Watercooler Wednesday #120 – Gail’s Christmas Challenge

Time for a Watercooler Wednesday challenge featuring a little JOY –

Yup. It has come. Christmas in…….MAY!!

I’ll admit, I was a bit stumped to create a Christmas card without much fresh, new Christmas products. I combined some old, some current and some upcoming to create this –

libbystamps, stampin up, Holly Berry Happiness, Eastern Medallions Thinlits, Merry Tags Thinlits, Eastern Palace Specialty DSP, Gold Foil, WWC

And, yes, it did bring me JOY when it was finished! It is quite lovely in person – foil cards never photograph well.

libbystamps, stampin up, Holly Berry Happiness, Eastern Medallions Thinlits, Merry Tags Thinlits, Eastern Palace Specialty DSP, Gold Foil, WWCI hope you have enjoyed the May Christmas inspiration! You should see what the others designed! Some great ideas! Perhaps we have inspired you to pull out your old and newer stuff to join us in our Christmas card challenge this week!

Supplies –

  • Stamp Set – Holly Berry Happiness
  • Framelits – Eastern Medallion, Merry Tags
  • Card Stock – Very Vanilla, Dapper Denim
  • Ink – Dapper Denim
  • DSP – Eastern Palace Specialty
  • Other – Gold Foil, Gold Cord (retired)

Enjoy Eastern Medallion Sunflower

Playing around with old, retiring and new! And, a bit of Christmas too!

I designed this card for the months online orders –

libbystamps, stampin up, Eastern Medallions Thinlits, Lots of Labels Framelits, Layering Circles Framelits, Mini Treat Bag Thinlits, Petal Burst Embossing Folder, This Christmas DSP, Venetian Crochet Trim

Isn’t it just beautiful?

What’s old? the crocheted lace ribbon

What’s retiring, also Christmas? the Designer Series Paper, The Christmas Specialty

What’s new? Eastern Medallion Thinlits

libbystamps, stampin up, Eastern Medallions Thinlits, Lots of Labels Framelits, Layering Circles Framelits, Mini Treat Bag Thinlits, Petal Burst Embossing Folder, This Christmas DSP, Venetian Crochet Trim

Lots of other products went into creating this sweet little number too. And, did you notice, there is no stamping on this card either!?!? Also sweet!

Perhaps you are one of the lucky recipients this month of this card! We all love Happy Mail!!!!

Happy Stampin’

Eastern Beauty Thank You

Time to be inspired with another Create with Connie and Mary  challenge this week.

Nice color selection to design with. Too bad the Mint Macaron and the Tip Top Taupe are retiring.

I’m playing around with the new Eastern Palace Suite again! It’s so fun! This time, I did some stamping with the stamp set.

I cut one of the shapes out from the coordinating framelits, pairing it with the Stitched Shapes Framelits.

We Create May Blog Hop

This is my second of two blog hops today! I’ve got a couple of great cards for We Create Bloggers!

For this duo of cards, I used new products!

I was on the fence about this new bundle, Eastern Beauty, but once I saw all the samples………I just had to get it!

This is my simple card –

libbystamps, stampin up, Eastern Beauty Bundle, We Create, Eastern Beauty, Eastern Medallions ThinlitsUsing the same layout, here is my stepped up card –

libbystamps, stampin up, Eastern Beauty Bundle, We Create, Eastern Beauty, Eastern Medallions ThinlitsBoth cards use three different framelits in the set to create the lovely focal point! The stamp is from the bundle too.
