Watercooler Wednesday Challenge 141 - Heidi's Masculine "Anything Goes" Challenge

Heidi is this weeks challenge host!
Cherry Cobbler and Dapper Denim are great colors for a guy card.
I used the stamp set One Wild Ride stamping it in Momento Ink onto Whisper White Cardstock. I sponged the edges with Crumb Cake Ink. I matted it with Dapper Denim and added it to a Cherry Cobbler base.  I stamped the sentiment onto a scrap of Whisper White Cardstock twice first with Dapper Denim and again in Cherry Cobbler. I punched the first one out with the Best Badge Punch. The second one I cut out just the banner and added it to the first one. Popped it up with Dimansioals.

Watercooler Wednesday Challenge 140 - Libby's All About Birthdays Challenge

Libby is our host this week!
While cleaning up my craft room I found these unused card bases that Stampin Up retired. They fit the challenge theme so I figured I better use them up.
I used the stamp set Birthday Banners. I stamped the candle twice end to end so that I had a tall candle. I pulled my ink color from the colors on the base to stamp both candle and banner. The colors I used are Melon Mambo, Crushed Curry, and Emerald Envy. I cut the banner out with the Bunch of Banners Framelits. I used Dimensionals to pop it up on the base. I used Wink of Stella on the flame. A fast and easy birthday card.

Watercooler Wednesday Challenge 139 - Kath's Feminine "Anything Goes" Challenge

It's my turn to host this weeks challenge! 
My card might not be the typical feminine card, but I so loved the delicate lacey leaves as well as the greeting and I felt it works for this challenge.
Photographing the foil papers is hard to do!
The card base is Thick Whisper White layered with Year of Cheer Specialty DSP. I used the Envelope Punch Board to round the corners. Using the Seasonal Layers Thinlits I cut leaves from Silver and Copper Foil Paper. I stamped the sentiment from Thoughts & Prayers with Versamark on Whisper White Cardstock and heat embossed with the Copper Embossing Powder. I cut the sentiment out with the Stitched Shapes Framelits and popped it up with Dimensionals.

Painted Harvest

The stamp set Painted Harvest is a popular set from the Holiday catalog. For the background, I stamped the acorn and the fern using Sahara Sand, Crumb Cake and Soft Suede inks. I used Year of Cheer Specialty Washi Tape at the bottom of the card. I used Copper Foil Paper to mat the sunflower but first I used the Leaf Punch  (bundled with the Painted Harvest stamp set for a 10% saving) to punch the leaf out of the center of my square. The sunflower is stamped with Daffodil Delight, Cajon Craze and Soft Suede ink. I added the copper leaf as well as two more punched from Vellum cardstock behind the image of the sunflower

Watercooler Wednesday Challenge 136 - Gail's All About Birthdays Challenge

Gail is this weeks challenge host.
This card was so easy everything just fell into place.
Sadly the flower punches used are retired but any small flower punch you own would work. For these flowers, I use the small left over strips of Watercolor Paper that I have after cutting Watercolor Paper for other projects. I can't stand to waste such expensive paper. After wetting the strips of Watercolor Paper I drop ink onto them with an Aqua Painter. After the strips dry I punch as many flowers as I can, each with slightly different colors. I store them in containers to use whenever the mood strikes!

The Cardstock used for this card is Thick Whisper White & Peekaboo Peach. The ink is Berry Burst. I used Garden Trellis Textured Embossing Folder and the Stamp is Happy Birthday Gorgeous.

I made a second one trading the peach for Sweet Sugarplum.

This bundle will be in the upcoming Holiday catalog but is pre-released for customers to order this month!

Watercooler Wednesday Challenge 130 - Gail's Feminine "Anything Goes" Challenge



Gail is hosting this challenge. There is an abundance of stamps in the StampinUP! catalog that work for this challenge, narrowing them down is the hard part.

This is a CASE of a card in the demonstrator quarterly magazine. I step it up and change all the colors, I used the same package of Fresh Florals DSP, just a different color and I used the same stamp set, Label Me Pretty. Label Me Pretty is bundled with the punch.

Cardstock used is Berry Burst and Whisper White, the DSP is also Berry Burst. I wrapped a piece of Organza Ribbon (from my stash) layered with a fold of Berry Burst Finely Woven Ribbon.

I stamped the Image from Label Me Pretty with Basic Gray Ink on Thick Whisper White Cardstock, coloring it with ink and an Aqua Painter. Punched with the Pretty Label Punch and popped over the ribbon with Dimensionals.
