October Wacky Watercooler Blog Hop

Yes, you've guessed it!! It's time for another
Wacky Watercooler Hop!  We have a great line-up ready
for your viewing pleasure.

You've likely hopped over from Heidi's Blog
She does a spectacular job creating unique projects!

I really love the new Christmas products, so my post
will feature Christmas cards.
My first card uses the What's Your Type Photopolymer set found on
page 160.  The first thing I wanted to try with this set
was a Christmas card.  The letters generated are pretty large,
so "Joy" barely fit on this standard card front.
The colors are for this card are Whisper White, 
Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive.

  My second card is inspired by the My Paper Pumpkin
Noel card from last year (see inset).  Since I love the
Party Pennants Bigz die (p 232), it was an easy idea to CASE. 
Although I don't sew on my cards,
I was readily able to glue stars to Whisper White Baker's Twine!
I love the look of combining the greeting from Bright and Beautiful
(p 25 of the Holiday Mini) with stars from
the Trim the Tree DSP pack and Gimmer Paper. 
It is a bright and sparkly card!
The colors are for this card are Whisper White, Cherry Cobbler 
and Garden Green.

My final card is another way to use the Stars Framelits
on page 230.  I cut strips of paper from the
Trim the Tree DSP pack, and a strip of
Brushed Gold c/s and glued them down on a piece of c/s.
Then I cut out the pattern with the Stars Framelit.
The smaller stars were cut out with a star framelit or the 
star punch from the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack.
The sentiment comes from the Endless Wishes Photopolymer set.
You can see the makings of this card below.

The colors for this card are Whisper White, Cherry Cobbler and
the Trim the Tree DSP Pack.

 Now you are ready to hop to the next blog, to enjoy

What a great way to use scraps. I will have to try this. Love the other 2 cards as well. Think my favorite is the second one.

I have a need to but the Star Framelits, not sure if I should thank you or cry;).

Hi Jackie, I love stars, and your "paper pumpkin" card is super--I'm going to have to case that one.

Is it the approach of Christmas...the celestial events like eclipses...or the inspiration of the Holiday Supplement that has so many of us fixated on Stars Miss Jackie? Whatever the reason...your star filled projects are inspiring fun ideas and new techniques to try. Thanks for adding joy to the hop and joy in our friendship. Hugs and looking forward to our next hop.

Hi Jackie, thank you for being part of the blog hop. You've left me "starry-eyed" with your projects! I love the first one you've created using the What's Your Type set. What a bold "Joy" it makes! And the colours, of course, work beautifully together. I also love the second one which was inspired by last year's Noel MPP card. To tell the truth, I prefer your creation.

The last card is brilliant! I have so many pieces of DSP that I hate disposing of and yet never seem to find a use for. Well, thanks to you, I hope to be ridding myself of a whole bunch of those scraps and making some pretty awesome Christmas cards in the process. TFS

Jackie, I love how you did the stars! The strips of DSP is going on my to-do list, for sure. Thanks for sharing :)
