WWC86 - Gail's Simply Stamping Challenge

This week Gail gave us a Simply Stamping Challenge with a Fall theme. 
Remember that the rules for this challenge are:
"Simply Stamping" is a return to basics. We expect either one single stamped layer or a base with one single layer on that. We expect simple stamping. You can use masking, heat embossing, stencilling, sponging. You cannot use an embossing folder or embellishments or additional layers (not even a tag).
I combined 4 stamp sets for my card, Wetlands, Jar of Haunts, Perpetual Birthday Calendar and Flourishing Phrases.

WWC82 - Libby's Theme Challenge-Trees

Libby gave us a theme challenge of Trees! 

My go to tree set is Lovely as a Tree but since this is a challenge I thought I better go with a tree I rarely use, the tree from Thoughts & Prayers.  The sentiment comes from Flourishing Phrases.

I used Copper paper and Copper Embossing Powder as well, I also used Very Vanilla and Soft Suede.
Money saving tip: When using Foil sheets remember to cut the middles out of the piece to use on other projects!

WWC81 - Gail's Color Challenge

Gail gave us a color challenge with some yummy colors!
Here is the card I made with these colors.

The first thing I did was a watercolor wash of Daffodil Delight and Peekaboo Peach, sadly it photographed looking like Very Vanilla.  I used the stamp sets Wild about Flowers and Birthday Banners.
The stems and flowers on the flowers in the back were stamped off once before stamping.  the flower in the foreground was stamped full strength. 

Check out the cards made by the artists at Watercooler Wednesday Challenges, there are some wonderful ones! Create with these colors and link back to the challenge.
