WWC247 – Marsha\’s "All About Occasions" Challenge

Hello and welcome! It is all about Occasions at The Watercooler Wednesday Challenge Website and Marsha is our hostess.

Several friends have been sick or have had surgery, so I was in need of some Get Well cards.  I thought this one turned out bright and cheery.

I put a light glaze of blue distress ink on watercolor paper for the background.  I then die cut the flowers and leaves from scraps of alcohol ink/Yupo panels. Since it is fall, I went with yellow-orange leaves.

Supplies:

  • Newton\’s Nook Flower Trio
  • Lawn Fawn Sentiment
  • Tumbled Glass Distress Ink
  • Assorted Alcohol Inks
  • Yupo paper
  • Watercolor Paper
  • Connect Glue
  • Foam Adhesive

WWC241 – Dawn\’s Feminine "Anything Goes" Challenge

Hello and welcome!  This week we are making \”feminine\” cards at the Watercooler Wednesday website and Dawn is our hostess.
Lawn Fawn Perfectly Plaid designer paper.
I was in need of some Get Well cards and I thought some daisy paper pieced inlays would be \”feminine\” and fun.  

Recipe:
  • I glued some Lawn Fawn \”Perfectly Plaid\” paper to cardstock and then die cut with Sugar Pea\’s Element Builder frame.  
  • I die cut the daisy from Newton\’s Nook Flower Trio from both the plaid paper/cardstock and then white card stock.  
  • I stamped the sentiment
  • I die cut the pink inner flower from a scrap of Yupo paper with alcohol ink. 
  • Next I inlaid the white daisy, added the pink layer and then added the center from the background.  
I really like how the card turned out.

Thanks for stopping by!

WWC224 – Karen\’s Feminine "Anything Goes" Challenge

Hello there!  Today I am hosting Watercooler Wednesday\’s #224 – Karen\’s Feminine \”Anything Goes\” Challenge and I am so pleased you stopped by.  

I\’ve been playing with alcohol inks and had some scraps I wanted to use to make into a floral card.  I just ordered these fun floral die-cuts (Newton\’s Nook Flower Trio) for this idea.  

Die cut alcohol ink flowers using Newton\'s Nook Floral Trio Die

I started by die cutting the parts to each flower/leaf and then assembled.  I wanted a textured background so I used an embossing folder (Sizzix/Tim Holtz Alterations) on a neutral cardstock panel.  I like that there are different sizes of \”dots\” as well as empty spaces.  I also diecut my sentiment from an alcohol ink scrap.  I added the  dry embossed panel to a white A2 card and then added the flowers with foam dots for added dimension.  I like this cheery card and it is going to my mom on her birthday.  Red is her favorite color so I thought she would like to top bloom.

I am entering this card in Alphabet Challenge \”E is for Embossing Folder\”.  I love the texture that embossing folders add to a project.

Thanks for stopping by!
