WATERCOOLER WEDNESDAY CHALLENGES WWC 48 - HONORABLE MENTION

WWC48 - Heidi's "Anything goes -- with Snow"

http://watercoolerchallenges.blogspot.ca/

Thank you again Ladies for the Honorable Mention for this challenge.  I really appreciate the inspiration and the wonderful comments you leave me.  Again, I proudly display the Badge.




Goodbye to Buffy and Susan our talented Watercooler Artists.  Your cards were beautiful and full of inspiration.  We will miss you both in the challenges.

I thought I would make a card with snowflakes.  This card is a little different as I used a circle punch on each upper corner.  It is a vertical card with a ribbon on top.  My camera is not that great, but hopefully you can see the design on top.   I also used some recycled acetate from an old Christmas card.  It had a couple of snowflakes on it, and I added some more.

 

The white frame is mounted on Night of Navy card stock.




An inside look:

Supplies:

Cardstock:  Night of Navy, Whisper White
Ink:   Tip Top Taupe
Stamp Set:  More Merry Messages
Misc:  Corner punch, MB Beloved Snowflakes & Snowflake corner, silver ribbon, acetate paper, retired dsp

Happy Holidays!  Thanks for stopping by my blog.  Happy stamping!   Heather :)

Seeing this is the last challenge for this year, I thought I would create a card and post it.  I have really enjoyed all the challenges this year and it was so nice to have a stash ready made to sent out.  I also finished the inside of the cards and had an envelope to go with it.  All I had to do was print out my address's and mail them out. 

This card is made from die cuts and is so elegant looking!

Supplies:

Cardstock:  Whisper White, Cherry Cobbler
Card size:  5 1/2 x 5 1/2
Misc:  Christmas Boot die cut, Corner Snowflakes die cut, Sentiment die cut, Snow Falling Softly E.F. 

I used the larger card size as two boots looked better than one.  The die cuts are from Tattered Lace and Memory Box.  The embossing folder is Stampin' Up.  It was a very fast, easy card to make.

Many Thanks to all the creative designers throughout the year.  I had lots of inspiration and enjoyed the challenges each week

Thanks for stopping by my blog!   Have a Merry Christmas and Many Happy returns in the New Year!  PEACE, LOVE & JOY to ALL!           
Happy Stamping............ Heather :)

WATERCOOLER CHALLENGES - WWC47- HONORABLE MENTION

WWC47 - Marsha's Color Inspiration Challenge 

Thank you again for the Honorable Mention for my posting in this Challenge. 
 



http://watercoolerchallenges.blogspot.ca/



The photo and color swatch for our challenge are from Design Seeds.  This is a beautiful inspiration from Marsha for this week' challenge.  I used most of  the colors on my card, but could not fit in the water droplets in my scene.  In my scenic view of the trees there is a beautiful full moon which makes the trees shimmer and glow in the moonlight. This was accomplished using Versa Mark and Clear Embossing Powder.

LAURA'S 10TH BIRTHDAY, DECEMBER 16, 2015

Laura's 10th Birthday!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY LAURA!  
Even though it was yesterday, I thought I would post the Birthday card that I made for her.  She really loves Owls, so using the Owl Punch, I created a Special Card for her.


Close up view:


Laura loves Magic as well, so Grandpa Ken and I sent her two Magic kits.  We talked to her last night and she already had done some magic tricks.   Lots of love going out to you............We will see you soon.   Love, Grandma Heather

WATERCOOLER WEDNESDAY CHALLENGES - WWC 45

WWC 45 - Susans Sketch Challenge



http://watercoolerchallenges.blogspot.ca/

This was an easy sketch and I checked out the range of interpretations from the Watercooler Artists.  My inspiration is similar to Jackie Susnik.  I used my Northern Flurry EF as my background and used a cute little snowman to show some different shapes in the design.  This was an easy, fast card.
