WWC216 – Dawn\’s "All About Occasions" Challenge

Hello and welcome to Watercooler Wednesday\’s All About Occasions Challenge.  Dawn is our hostess this week.

Lawn Fawn\'s Perfectly Plaid designer paper.

I needed an Easter card so I challenged myself to use patterned paper with limited stamping.  I chose  bright cheery Lawn Fawn \”Perfectly Plaid\”.  I used one pattern to cover an A2 card and then selected a second pattern to die-cut SSS\’s Plush Carrot.   The carrot top is die cut from green embossed paper for some added texture.   I think this would make a darling stuffed ornament, but I needed a card.  Next, I embossed Rubbernecker\’s Three Line Frame on sherbet colored card stock.  I assembled the card using craft foam and Gina K connect glue and then added Lily of the Valley Jewels from Little Things from Lucy.

I am entering this card in:  The Paper Players Plaid or Checks Challenge

WWC202 – Dawn\’s Feminine "Anything Goes" Challenge

I made my youngest daughter an assortment of cards as a Christmas gift.  Megan is a cute blond who owns her own marketing company so I thought this image was perfect.
Visible Image Live in the Moment
The stamp set is Clover by Rubbernecker.  The sentiment is Visible Image\’s Live in the Moment which was fun to use as I won it as a prize in a challenge this summer.  Link to Yappy Birthday card

I colored Clover with Copic markers and then added three pearlescent sequins for a little interest and shine.

My card is among the artist cards for Dawn\’s Watercooler Wednesday Feminine Anything Goes Challenge.  Come take a peek and play along.

Make a Wish

I went to the Stamp and Scrapbook Expo, my first card making convention, and I found a Stamp Company that I really liked – Rubbernecker Stamps.  I LOVED this candle set and also bought the frame stamp. I am entering this card in the  Cards in Envy Birthday Party Time Challenge

Handmade card using Rubbernecker Stamps Candle Set.

I stamped the frame, then the candles and colored with Copic markers.  I like that this card could be given to just about anyone so it is great to have on hand.

Stamps Used:

  • Rubbernecker Candle Set
  • Rubbernecker Three Line Frame
  • Simon Says Stamp Brush Stroke Messages (sentiment)
My card was selected as an \”in the mailbox\” favorite in the Card Envy challenge:
