Hello and welcome! October has five Wednesdays and that means it is \”Anything Goes\” at the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge. We would love for you to submit your creation!
I came up with the idea for creating a fall birthday card with dark cardstock for a seasonal look. Prior to die cutting, I backed the patterned card stock with adhesive paper then I die cut the three blooms and sentiment which made constructing the layout very easy. I like the clean autumn look of this card.

Hello and Welcome! This week we are creating Masculine Cards at the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge and Heidi is our hostess.
I\’ve been on an alcohol ink/Yupo paper roll and thought I would do a masculine sympathy card. I love the unpredictability of alcohol inks but I wanted to create a sunset background where the sun was setting over trees and a lake. I like the end result. The tree is a die from Simon Says Stamp. The sentiment is my favorite for sympathy cards: My Sentiments Exactly – Sympathy.

First I created an alcohol ink panel on Yupo paper. I was going for a sunset background and I really like how the panel turned out. Next, I used Simon Says Stamps Tree Frame die for the cover. I stamped my sentiment (My Sentiments Exactly) and was done.
I am so pleased you stopped by!
I wanted to try a girly card in slightly non-traditional colors, in this case, oranges and lime greens. I came up with the idea of a confetti background forming a square with some pattern stamping for the focal point. I used WPlus9 Doodle Buds, Sunny Studio Tropical Paradise and SSS Beautiful Ride floral stamps. The sentiment is from Lawn Fawn Year 2 Birthday Turtle.
I colored the images in with Copics and then used the markers to make the confetti background. I then embellished with tiny gem stones on four of the flowers.
I hope you will stop by Watercooler Wednesdays Challenge to see what the other artists have created. This week is Feminine Anything Goes which is such a fun prompt. We would love to see your creation!
I entered this card in the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge \”Add Some Red\”. I used Copic R20 and several shades of yellow-red.

I wanted to do a birthday card featuring this cute whimsical bird and decided a bold background would be fun. Since it is The 4th of July, I used Red, White and Blue as my color inspiration. I started by stamping the Hero Arts Tribal Stripes Bold Print Background Stamp with Ranger Denim ink. Next I stamped the bird from one of my favorite stamp sets, Simon Says Stamp Stacking Animals.
I used the same denim ink for the bird and sentiment to tie the card together. I colored the bird with Copic markers and then added Tonic Nuvo Glaze to the birds beak. I trimmed the smaller panel down and mounted (with foam tape) on the blue background,. I then mounted the background on a white card and stamped a birthday sentiment inside the card.
