WWC234 - The Watercooler Rock Star and Rockers


Drum roll, please!  It's Tuesday and time to announce our Watercooler Rock Star and Watercooler Rockers for Dawn's "All About Occasions" challenge.  But first, we'd like to thank all those who played along with us.  Beautiful entries that make our choices so much harder, but we think you are all stars.  Well done!

Dawn's choice for our Watercooler Rock Star is Claire's cute kittens in a boot card design.  Following the winner are the Watercooler Artists choices for the Watercooler Rockers.

Dawn's Rock Star:  Claire has made the sweetest card. The colouring on her boot, flowers and kittens is superb. The stenciling in the corner draws the eye to the focal image. And that sentiment is adorable. All in all, a beautiful card.

Congratulations Claire!  Here is your badge to proudly display on your blog designating you as our Watercooler Rock Star.


Next up are all the wonderful designs that caught the eyes of the other Watercooler Artists for our Watercooler Rockers.  They are shown in no particular order.

Michelle's Rocker:  Jenny has created a beautiful card using acrylic inks. I love the bright pink buds on the tree achieved with paint! Stunning card.

Marsha's Rocker:  I love this adorable new baby card Linda has created.  All the elements come together for this cute card.  Love that little elephant.

Tristan's Rocker:  I love the circle focus of Milla's card with the balance of the floral and leaf elements and the great colour scheme. A beautiful card.

Heidi's Rocker:  After reading about all the mis-steps Trina made while creating and then salvaging this card, I am amazed at how absolutely stunning the finished birthday card turned out to be. The red and white and all those shades in between really "pop" against the black base. I had to laugh in sympathy when even the sentiment had to be redone. This is a card determined to have its day in the sun.

Kath's Rocker:  Mac's colorful background was made from the clever usage of the paper toweling she used for water coloring. With the added die cuts and mica makes for a stunning card.

#12  Cathy R
Helen's Rocker:  Cathy's gorgeous card has such a feeling of movement on the gorgeous acrylic pour panel and butterfly, while still remaining CAS! It certainly is a case of 'Butterfly Camouflage'!

Karen's Rocker:  Karen has created a delightful card. I love her cabin scene that is on the inside and framed on the outside. Very nicely done.

Congratulations Jenny, Linda, Milla, Trina, Mac, Cathy and Karen!  Here is your badge to proudly display on your blog designating you as one of our Watercooler Rockers.


That's our lineup for this week's Watercooler Rock Star and Watercooler Rockers.  Be sure to come back tomorrow, August 21st, for our next Watercooler Wednesday Challenge.  You won't want to miss all the wonderful designs by our Watercooler Artists.

WWC233 - The Watercooler Rock Star and Rockers


Drum roll, please!  It's Tuesday and time to announce our Watercooler Rock Star and Watercooler Rockers for Karen's Feminine "Anything Goes" challenge.  But first, we'd like to thank all those who played along with us.  Beautiful entries that make our choices so much harder, but we think you are all stars.  Well done!

Karen's choice for our Watercooler Rock Star is Sue's beautiful Gerbera daisy card design.  Following the winner are the Watercooler Artists choices for the Watercooler Rockers.

Karen's Rock Star:  Sue has created a beautiful and dramatic card. I love alcohol ink backgrounds and Sue’s velum Gerbera daisy is lovely.

Congratulations Sue!  Here is your badge to proudly display on your blog designating you as our Watercooler Rock Star.


Next up are all the wonderful designs that caught the eyes of the other Watercooler Artists for our Watercooler Rockers.  They are shown in no particular order.

Marsha's Rocker:  For someone who is not fond of the color purple, Claire has done a beautiful job of coloring these flowers.  I really like the brick background she has created to showcase those pretty flowers.  A very nicely done card.

Dawn's Rocker:  Marina’s beautiful Japanese lady and the fabulous scenery really is amazing. The sentiment perfectly accents the scene. I can imagine the shimmer on the dress with the sparkle pens. Beautifully done card.

Heidi's Rocker:  Lesley has created a wonderful retirement card. Great colours and papers, and, of course, that adorable cat peeking out from the laundry basket. The layers and embellishments add the perfect touch.

Tristan's Rocker:  I love the simplicity of Robyn’s card yet it has great texture and vibrancy with the die cut lattice and flowers.

Kath's Rocker:  Julie has used a couple of challenges to design her card. I love how she combined several stamp sets when creating her card, She also used one of my favorite stamps sets to create her card. A great card.

Michelle's Rocker:  Angie has created a stunning card, I love all the dimension she achieved by stacking the die cuts. The mirror card stock sets it off beautifully!

Helen's Rocker:  Linda has created a super cute 16th birthday card. So much fun the way the little mice 'pop' out of the circles. The text along the side gives great balance to the CAS die cut panel.

Congratulations Claire, Marina, Lesley, Robyn, Julie, Angie and Linda!  Here is your badge to proudly display on your blog designating you as one of our Watercooler Rockers.


That's our lineup for this week's Watercooler Rock Star and Watercooler Rockers.  Be sure to come back tomorrow, August 14th, for our next Watercooler Wednesday Challenge.  You won't want to miss all the wonderful designs by our Watercooler Artists.
