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.

WWC80 - Heidi's Clean & Simple Water Theme Challenge

Heidi gave us a Clean & Simple Challenge with a water theme!
Remember the following rules if you are going to play along with us.

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 e f embossing. Clean and simple.
Clean and Simple are the hardest cards for me to make! I must rely on layers, diecuts and embossing!
I used the stamp sets Jar of Love & the hostess set Love you Lots.

Check out what the artists at Watercooler Wednesday Challenges have created and then join the challenge and link your card to the challenge.
