Wow! It's 2014. Not only do we have a new Wacky Watercooler Blog Hop, but we have a new seasonal catalogue and Sale-a-Bration coming up.
If you started at the beginning, you've arrived here from the fabulous Jean Fitch's blog.
I challenged myself to go beyond my comfort zone with this Hop. By that I mean I decided not to use any Crumb Cake! It seems I use a lot of Crumb Cake. Guess it is my go-to colour. And why not? After all it goes with practically everything!
But it's good to stretch myself and see where I can go. For my first project, I'm still thinking Christmas. In the 2014 Celebrate the Everyday seasonal catalogue is the gorgeous Watercolour Wonder Designer Washi Tape. I thought it would make a great contemporary Christmas Card.
Stamps: Teeny Tiny Wishes
Cardstock: Whisper White
Ink: Gold Encore Metallic
Other: Watercolour Wonder Designer Washi Tape, gold stars I had from I don't remember what or when
Next up I used a stamp set I received at Convention last summer - Yippee-Skippee! It's a fun name and I tried to create a fun card.
Cardstock: Pistachio Pudding, Whisper White, Basic Black, Summer Starfruit
Ink: Pistachio Pudding, Coastal Cabana, Staz-On Black
Other: Candy Dots, Chalk Talk Framelits, Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border Punch, Sweet Sorbet Designer Series paper - a Sale-a-Bration item.
And finally, I wanted to make a set of 4 X 4 cards with custom envelopes created using the Envelope Punch Board and Sweet Sorbet DSP.
Cardstock: Whisper White, Pistachio Pudding, Crisp Cantaloupe
Ink: Pistachio Pudding, Crisp Cantaloupe, Smoky Slate
Other: Sweet Sorbet (SAB), Envelope Punch Board
