The card I made for WWC64-Heidi's CAS Challenge ended up getting an oily spot on the back of the card so I used the front for this card.
I'm always happy if I can rescue a damaged card!

Have a great day and come back on Wednesday for another challenge.

WWC74 - Marsha's Tag Challenge

Marsha gave us a Tag Challenge. What does that mean?  You just have to create a tag.  It can be a tag by itself, it can be on card or it can be a tag attached to something.
I went with a tag on a card!

 I used Artistically Asian for the card with Wild Wasbi and Melon Mambo for color.

Head over to Watercooler Wednesday to see what the artists there have created then create and link yours so we all can see it!

Gail challenged us to make a clean and simple card with the theme of Summer!

I decided that the Wetlands stamp set was the way to go!

Wacky Watercooler June Blog Hop!

I'm hopping with my friends again! It has been too long!

Our blog hop works in a circular pattern, so you may have started here on my blog or have hopped here from Deb's blog. Either way Welcome!

We are sharing our favorites fro the new catalog. It's hard to pick favorites when there is so much I am liking about this catalog.

First up, favorite new In Color: Dapper Denim is my favorite at the moment ;).
I faux watercolored with the stamp set Touches of Texture using Dapper Denim, Old Olive and Daffodil Delight. I also used a greeting from Birthday Banners.

Second was our favorite Stamp Set/Bundle, that was a tough one so I went with two of them.

I used the Foxy Friends and Always an Adventure Bundles. I also used Teeny Tiny Wishes and the Woodgrain Embossing Folder.

Last, Favorite DSP, well I didn't buy any (you'd think with a $500 order that wouldn't have happened). But I have the Neutrals Stack.

I used One Wild Ride, another favorite stamp set. 

So now it's time to hop over to Marie's blog.

WWC72 - Jean's Color Challenge

Jean challenged us to use at least 3 of the new In colors.  I used Dapper Denim, Emerald Envy and Flirty Flamingo.
For my card front I took a piece of Shimmery White CS and ran it through the Big Shot, in the Seaside Textured Embossing Folder.  I used a piece of chip board with a circle cut out of its center instead of one of the Cutting Pads.

Using the stamp set Seaside Shore, I stamped the seaweed in the flat area on my card front in Basic Gray, coloring it Emerald Envy. I did a back ground wash of Dapper Denim and Crumb Cake when dried I stamped the starfish on the "sand" in Flirty Flamingo.

The fish were stamped on scraps of Watercolor Paper colored, cut out and popped up with Dimensionals.

The greeting is from Birthday Banners cut out with Bunch of Banners Framelits.
