Watercooler Wednesday #114

Middle of the week. You know what that means. Time for a Watercooler Wednesday challenge!

Penny is our host. She chose some wonderful colors –

I stared at them for a while. I just pulled out my inks and a stamp set. I went with a favorite that will be retiring –

I created a simple ‘Thanks’ card. Really, is there any other type of card for me to create?

My flowers were all randomly stamped. Followed by the nicely inked up centers! I like the contrast of the Calypso Coral words. And, of the course the addition of the bow. These have become my favorites!

I hope to have inspired you to join up with our challenge this week! You can see the other design team cards on our blog, Watercooler Wednesday!

Supplies –

  • Stamp Set – Perfectly Wrapped
  • Card Stock – Pool Party, Island Indigo, Whisper White
  • Ink – Calypso Coral, Pool Party, Island Indigo

Happy Day Friday

Friday – everyone seems to love Fridays! And, why not just have fun with it?

I want to share this simply wonderful card we made last night with downline, Cheryl. It was her first home show last night –

I changed the sentiment because I forgot to stamp it last night.

But this card was SO easy! It’s just strips of washi tape on layered card stock! I don’t have this washi tape yet – so I needed to make this card!

How easy is that? Super easy.

For extra added dimension, I popped all the layers of the card stock. It’s amazing just what this will do for a card.

Well, I must say, I hadn’t done a home show in a looooonnnng time. Cheryl and I had a blast! Great projects. Fantastic people. Wonderful host. Yummy food. You couldn’t ask for more!

Quite a sweet card!

Uses all five new colors, Peekaboo Peach, Flirty Flamingo, Sweet Sugarplum, Emerald Envy and ‘For You’ in Dapper Denim. I did add Pink Pirouette behind the flower. It really needed it.

The butterfly is a retired one that I added a couple of left over pieces from the Swirly Scribbles cut out. that addition just made the butterfly!

Head over to Try Stampin’ Or Not On Tuesday and play along with us. You can play on Facebook or on the blog.

But first, please leave me some good ‘card-carma’!

I created this little nifty holder first –

The focal point here is Peekaboo Peach. Looks yummy enough to eat!
