September Wacky Watercooler Mix-Up

Yes, indeed, this is our September Wacky Watercooler
Blog Hop.  We are calling this a "Mix-Up" because
the task is to use products from both the current "regular"
catalog and the Holiday Mini that went active September 1st.

You've likely landed here from Marie's blog.
Didn't she do a stunning job?!  That shaker card is a great fall idea.  If you missed her
post, please step back and take a look.
My first project is a combination of current catalog and
Holiday Mini products.  I used Vintage Leaves (p 88) with
the sentiment from Among the Branches (p 39 of Holiday catty).
Pumpkin Pie and Cucumber Crush make a nice color combo,
don't they!

My next project features 2 sets from the main catalog;
Awesomely Artistic on p 125 and Tin of Cards on p 110.
I used the File Tabs Edgelits (p 172) to make a bottom tab,
where Timeless Elegance DSP (p 143) was attached.
I really do love the Tin of Cards set, as it can accentuate
cards in so many different ways.

My final card is an Ombre technique card using 
Among the Branches on page 39 of the Holiday Mini.  
Other elements from the Holiday mini include the 
Woodland Textured Embossing Folder and Black
Glimmer Paper on page 47.
I hope that you have enjoyed my September Hop Offerings.
Now scoot on to check out Kath's inspiring projects.  You don't want to miss her Christmas card or watercolor light house.

Lovely ideas, Jackie. The Cucumber Crush with Pumpkin Pie is a smashing combo!

Gail said...

You've captured the spirit of Fall perfectly Jackie. And I agree - Pumpkin Pie and Cucumber Crush are a great combo!

Great cards, Jackie! Tin of Cards is one of my favorite sets, too, and I love they way you used it to frame the Awesomely Artistic flowers - another idea on my "must try" list!

Deborah Smart said...

So many beautiful projects to compliment, Jackie!! Brilliant use of the Tin of Cards & making the file tab edge, and I love the owl in your ombré card. TFS!

Christine said...

What great projects. My favorite is the card with all the elements for Tin of Cards, File tabs and Timeless elegance.

Jackie, I love the colors on your leaf card! Great cards!

Bev said...

Wow! Neat ideas Jackie. The sketch is really awesome on the first card. Very cool idea to have a sentiment tab at the bottom on the second and the last card is my fave. Lovely blending.

Hi Jackie, thanks so much for continuing to be part of our terrific blog hop. I love the colours you've used for your Woodland embossed/Vintage Leaves card. It really shows the transition from the green of summer into the colours of fall. What a lot of detail you've put into your second card. I can't get enough of the Awesomely Artistic set and yours is simply stunning. What a great idea to use the file tab edge. I don't use those edgelits nearly enough. And that ombre-effect card---love it. I wouldn't have thought to turn the branch into a small tree, but it certainly works.

Penny Hanuszak said...

Oh my Jackie I love all three of your stunning cards. The ombre Among the Branches was totally my favourite Halloween card of the hop! I definitely will be CASing that one. Thanks for sharing your talents. Awesome!

Marsha Reed said...

Wonderful projects, Jackie! I love that Awesomely Artistic card. That set is definitely on my wishlist.

I can't decided which card I like best.
