Watercooler Wednesday 130 – Gail’s Feminine Anything Goes Challenge

Happy Wednesday my blogging friends! Time to create for Watercooler Wednesday!

Our challenge today comes from Gail –

These are the best challenges. Almost all of our cards we create are for women! So you have no excuse not to join our challenge this week!

This is what I’m sharing for the challenge –

Bright. Fun. Clean. Simple.

My inspiration and color choice came from the Naturally Eclectic Designer Series Paper. That’s what I used to create the candles. It was a scrap from one of the papers I had. Worked perfect for this candle idea. The flames are created using the Tree Builder Punch.

So. You going to join Gail’s challenge this week and submit a card to Watercooler Wednesday? We’d love to see you there! You can also view the other Design Team cards there too.

Supplies –

  • Stamp Set – none
  • Framelits – Happy Birthday
  • Card Stock – Berry Burst, Soft Sky, Basic Grey, So Saffron (candle flames)
  • DSP – Naturally Eclectic
  • Punches – Tree Builder
  • Other – Softly Falling EF, retired Stampin’ Up ribbon
Happy Stampin’

Watercooler Wednesday 126 – Fiona’s Feminine Anything Goes Challenge

Have a nice festive 4th? I hope you did!

It’s time for another wonderful challenge for Watercooler Wednesday!

Did you see our new logo??? Nice, huh?

Ok, ok, our challenge this week is from Fiona –

I thought about this one for a while. It’s feminine – should be easy, right? Well, I don’t like to create the ‘pink’ cards because a lot of women don’t like pink – at all.

But, this new Lemon Lime Twist is a fun color though!

And, yes, diamonds are another thing that every women doesn’t necessarily like either. But, I like the pattern paper here and the cool framelits that match the paper…..So, I went with that!

This is such a fun card! I backed the glittery diamonds in vellum for a little more pop to them on the card. I also added a tiny decorative edge to the left side of the card using the new Decorative Ribbon Border Punch. Just a few little details to create a spectacular feminine card!

Our other designers created some fabulous cards too! Check them out on our Watercooler Wednesday blog. You can link up a card there too!

Supplies –

  • Stamp Set – Happy Birthday Gorgeous
  • Framelits – Eclectic Layers
  • Card Stock – Lemon Lime Twist, Silver Glimmer Paper, Vellum Card Stock
  • Ink – Night of Navy
  • DSP – Naturally Eclectic
  • Punches – Decorative Ribbon Border
