Watercooler Challenge - 2014-2016 In Colors

I'm so excited to be a part of yet another new venture! The Wacky Water Cooler crew has started a challenge as well as the usual blog hop! Every couple of weeks there will be a new challenge posted, with our projects and a spot for you to submit yours.

This week the challenge was the new 2014-2016 In Colors, which I love so much it's not really a challenge! I chose to feature Hello Honey and Tangelo Twist in this bright and summery birthday card. I did use a little bit of Mossy Meadow as well for the leaves. The stamps are new, current, and old, but the 'subway art' look can be made with pretty much any stamps. I like using the new photopolymer stamps to fill in any gaps left by the clear and wood mount stamps. Being able to see exactly where they'll stamp makes it a snap to fit them in between in the tight spaces.

For the inside, I masked off the Hello Honey flowers when I stamped the Tangelo Twist ones so that they could over lap and give some layers without bulking up the card too much.

I also used the new Blendabilities markers to colour some pearls to pop onto the flowers. I love this easy trick to step up a card just that extra bit.

Don't forget to check out everyone else's project over on the Watercooler Challenge Blog and that any of the current supplies used here can be purchased online!


  1. I like your card a lot. The subway look is cool. At first I thought it was a single stamp then I realized it was several and I love that idea. Thanks for being a part of the challenge and look forward to see what you do next.

  2. Love the "Subway art" look of this card, as well as color combination. Now I'm gonna have to try it!!

  3. Beautiful card, Stefanie! I love how you decorated the inside to match the outside.

  4. I love the burlap with the flowers - and the "subway art" is very cool. I was getting ready to look for that single stamp, too. You did a great job! And the pop of Tangelo Twist is very nice.
