Watercooler Challenge WCC27


It is that time again for another Watercooler Challenge!  This time Jackie gave us an Iris Fold Challenge.  I have to admit, this was a hard one for me.  I haven’t ever done an Iris Fold so first I had to try to figure out how to do it from the picture she gave us and then design something.

Awesomely Artistic

I am not sure I got it quite right but you get the idea.  I decided to use a new stamp set called Awesomely Artistic.  I actually bought this set for the dragonfly because I thought it was cute.  The sentiment is from the new stamp set called Tin Of Cards.  This set actually goes with an adorable kit where you decorate a tin to store cards in.  I just liked the sentiments so I use the set without the kit too!

If you would like to see the other Watercooler creations click HERE (they will post at 7:30 MT).  We would love for you to play along.  Make an Iris Fold card and post it to that web site and maybe you will will a Watercooler Artist Winner badge!

A Simple Birthday Card

Tin Of Cards

I made this very simple birthday card in about 5 minutes.  I had already cut the Cherry On Top Designer Series Paper for a card I used a couple of days ago (it was the Zoo Babies card I posted on the 20th).  I used a new stamp set called Tin Of Cards for the sentiment.  This set actually goes with a very cute kit but you have to buy the stamps that go with it separately.  I haven’t purchased the kit yet (and I will because it really is cute and would be perfect for my mother) but I loved the fonts on the stamp set so I bought those.  The set actually has 20 different stamps, one of which includes the little cross border you see on this card.    It is a great set for every day use.

Here is Madelyn at 7 weeks.  I don’t know who is Madelyn’s hairdresser but it looks like the same one they use for Waffles!!


PS:  Happy 32nd anniversary to Rob!  Love you the most!

Awesomely Artistic

Awesomely Artistic

This is a brand new stamp set that is in the 2015 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog.  It is called Awesomely Artistic. This set comes in Wood Mount or Clear Mount.  Honestly, it is not a set I would usually get (because I am not very good at vintage) but it has the cutest Dragonfly included with it.  Most of you know I am not a butterfly fan but for some reason I like Dragonflies.  Go figure!  The set of Framelits called Project Life Cards & Labels have a Framelit that goes with this set.  You can see I used it in this card.  The “thanks” is from another new stamp set called Tin Of Cards.  That set has a bunch of great sentiments included with it.

I got to visit Madelyn last weekend and was able to take some new pictures so I thought I would share one since you haven’t seen many lately.
