Wacky Watercooler Blog Hop 3rd Anniversary Celebration

It's been awhile since I last hopped with my friends but I didn't want to miss our anniversary! If this isn't your first stop then you probably came here from Kathe's blog, I'm sure you enjoyed your visit with her.

RULES FOR OUR HOP:   Project One:  Featuring an Anniversary Card.   Project Two:  Featuring a stamp set that has survived since being introduced in 2013 (Wetlands, Gorgeous Grunge, Flower Shop).  Project Three:  Featuring your version of a CASE from the original blog hop. 

My first project:
I used three stamp sets for this card: Birthday Blooms, Birthday Banners & matching Framelit and the sentiment is from Number of Years. My colors are Watermelon Wonder, Flirty Flamingo, So Saffron, Old Olive and Pear Pizzazz, Card Stock is Shimmery White & Flirty Flamingo.

Next The stamp set I used from 2013 is Gorgeous Grunge I paired it with Timeless Textures.
The colors used are Basic Gray, Dapper Denim, Island Indigo, Pool Party, Cherry Cobbler and Daffodil Delight. I used the Butterfly Framelits and colored Rhinestones

For my last project I CASEd Kathe's last card from our first hop.
All the framelits she used are retired so I combined Framelits from several sets as well as used the Seaside Textured Embossing Folder.
Stamp Sets are Seaside Shore and Guy Greetings. Colors are Marina Mist, Daffodil Delight and Dapper Denim.

So there you have it, I'd love to hear what you think of my projects but now it's time to hop on to Bev's Blog.  Thanks for stopping by.

WWC76 - Penny's Clean & Simple Challenge

Penny challenged us to make a clean and simple card with the added challenge to include a butterfly.

For the Watercooler Wednesday challenge the guide line for Clean & Simple or CAS is:
  Either a single layer upon which we stamp or a base with a single layer upon which we stamp. Since we use embellishments for any other type of card, no embellishments or die-cuts or anything except the simplicity of stamping for the "clean & simple". That gives a clear reason for its name. And what is simpler than stamping? That will allow heat embossing since, if one decides to use a colour, heat embossing would show better than simple stamping. But no embossing folder embossing. Clean and simple.

Here is my card, I used Wild About Flowers and Suite Sayings. For color I used Pear Pizzazz, Peekaboo Peach and Sweet Sugarplum.
Check out what the artists at Watercooler Wednesday have done with this challenge. then join the challenge and link your card, and maybe you will "rock" the watercooler ;).
