Watertcooler Wednesday WWC44


Today is Wednesday which means it is another Watercooler Wednesday Challenge!  This time the challenge was given to us by Buffy.  It is a “Anything Goes” challenge.  The only rule is you have to have a wedding theme.  You can make a card or a 3D project.  Anything you want as long as it has a wedding theme.

Thoughts & Prayers, Bravo

I decided to make a card using the stamp set called Thoughts & Prayers.  This set has been around for a long time.  It really is a beautiful set to use for a sympathy card but it also has other uses.  I used the branch stamp to make a wreath.  I stamped it in Versamark and then embossing it using White Embossing Powder.  The ‘congratulations” is from the stamp set called Bravo and I cut it out using the Project Life Cards and Labels Framelits.

A Simple Card For A Friend

Flower Shop

One of the (many) great things about Stampin’ Up! is that everything coordinates.  The cardstock matches the ink which matches the markers which match the Designer Series Paper.  Designer Series Paper (also known as DSP for us lazy writers) is such an easy way to add color or texture to a card.  You just cut out the appropriate sized piece and attach it to the card.  Easy as pie!

I needed a quick card to send someone that needed a little TLC so I made this card for her.  It didn’t take very long, but when she got it, she was so appreciative.  Sometimes it’s the little stuff!

Another Fun Fold Card



Here is another Fun Fold card I made.  This time I used the Apothecary Accents Framelits to make the “windows”.  It was a little hard to line up until I had a brainstorm and decided to use Post-It Notes to help.  I don’t know what we did without those Post-it Notes but they sure make life easier when it comes to cardmaking!  The “Thinking of You” stamp is from the Thoughts & Prayers stamp set.  I made the flowers using the Floral Fusion Sizzlits and the leaves were made using the Little Leave Sizzlits.  Of course, the strips going across the card is Epic Day This and That Washi Tape.  I love that stuff!

Freshly Made Sketches Christmas


Here is my entry for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches.  I used the stamp set called Thoughts and Prayers and just used markers to color the leaves and flowers.  The Merry Christmas sentiment is from the stamp set called Greetings of the Season.  I love the font on this particular stamp.  Of course, I had to use Candy Dots.  I love, love, love them.  You still get the look of brads but no more punching and no more bulk when mailing your cards.  They stick very well on the card so they don’t fall off.  Plus they come in all the regular Stampin Up! colors (Brights, Regals, Subtles and Neutrals)!

Here is this week’s sketch:
