June Blog Hop
 Whooooo Hooooo!!
The Wacky Watercooler crew is celebrating the new
2015-16 Stampin' Up! catalog, with an exciting June Hop. 
You've likely arrived from Marsha's blog 
and her wonderful projects.

My first project features the Amazingly Artistic set
on page 125.  It is one of my favorite new sets.
I used two new In-Colors; Tip Top Taupe and 
Mint Marcaron.  The lacy ribbon makes a wonderful layer.
I suspect it would look spectacular with the dragonfly
fussy cut... but alas I am not a fussy cutter.

My next offering features the Wild About Flowers
photopolymer set on page 74.  I love the way the flowers
pair with the stems.  In order to make this image look
more "lacy", I ran it through the Elegant Dots (p 174)
Big Shot Embossing Folder.  I love the way that 
heightens the lacy look of the flowers.
The sentiment comes from the Greetings Thinlits on
page 172.   The colors are Old Olive, Delightful Dijon
and Whisper White.
 My final project was created with the Cutie Pie Thinlits
on page 171.
This is the top view of the cake slice
And a view from the "back side" of the slice.
The Thinlit includes a lot of bits and pieces, including
candle, bow, tages, "Eat Me!" sentiment and other cake 
decorating components.
This is the negative left from the sentiment lettering,
a suggestion from my friend Mary Brown (Stampercamper).
If you have the need to make favors or a cake for an event,
this is certainly the way to go!                    

So now that you've finished viewing my projects,
please hop on over to see Penny's wonderfully creative
projects!   Or, you can hop on over to our Home page,
to catch up on any sites you might have missed.

Wild About Flowers

This is the Wild About Flowers set, found on page 74.
It is a beautiful set with greenery and flowers that match
up really well, especially with a photopolymer set.

Brick Wall 6x6 Embossing Folder on page 174
Lots of Labels Framelits on page 173
The colors are Rose Red, Pear Pizzazz, Basic Black
and Whisper White

WCC26 Watercooler Color Challenge!

Welcome to the Watercooler  Challenge #26.  This is
a color challenge from our very own Jean Fitch.
Jean is as delightful as this mouthwatering pie!
 I used several sets for this challenge, including
Serene Silhouettes on page 109,  You've Got This
on page 113 and the sentiment from An Open Heart
on page 25.
I inked up the background from You've Got This 
with Delightful Daffodil and Marina Mist, spritzed
with water and stamped.  After it dried, I stamped
the focal image in Early Espresso.

I textured the card stock base with the Boho Chic
Textured Embossing Folder.  This EF is just wonderful!
