WWC225 - Donna's "All About Occasions" Challenge

Woo Hoo!  This week Donna hosts our awesome "All About Occasions" Challenge.  Besides the birthdays, anniversaries, weddings, etc. there is, of course, graduation to think about and let's not forget Father's Day.  And if you're into working ahead to get a nice pile of cards ready without stress, there is always Christmas.  And if that doesn't inspire you, hopefully our terrific samples will.


And now on to the terrific projects by the Watercooler Artists to get your creative juices flowing.  I love how wonderfully diverse all our creations are this week, don't you?   For details on how Donna and the other Watercooler Artists created their projects, just click on the name underneath and you will be taken to that blog post.  We begin with Donna's whimsical rainbow shaker card:

WWC224 - 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 Anita's lovely birthday card design.  Following the winner are the Watercooler Artists choices for the Watercooler Rockers.

Karen's Rock Star:  Anita has created a darling birthday card.  I really like the colorful layered foliage, the cheerful paint spatters and the card layout.

Congratulations Anita!  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:  Jo has created a beautiful card.  I love all the layers and the colors along with those pretty flowers.

Tristan's Rocker:  I love that watercolour background that Cathy has created.  It looks like beach sea glass and is a perfect background for that beautiful floral die panel.

Dawn's Rocker:  Robyn’s stenciled flower is extra special in these beautiful colours. Great perseverance to get the one you wanted.

Kath's Rocker:  Cornelia (fun stamping) has created a fun and punny birthday card. I love the humor. Her creative background is wonderful.

#16  Darnell
Michelle's Rocker:  Darnell has created a beautiful shimmery bird from yupo and the ombré blended strips add a perfect grounding for that cute little bird!

Helen's Rocker:  Milla's gorgeous little strawberry fairy certainly does make for a bright, happy feeling card! The beautiful summer design is carried over with the choice of DP and die cuts! Just lovely!

Heidi's Rocker:  Isabelle has created a stunning card with those brilliant colours and white heat embossed images. I love those gorgeous flowers. A lovely CAS feminine creation.

Donna's Rocker:  Heather has created five beautiful cards using the One-Sheet-Wonder approach (AND included her OSW template as well!). Heather chose her 4th card to enter for our Watercooler Wednesday Challenges, and it was my favorite! She has inspired me to dig into my paper stash to see what gems I can find to create my own quick stack of cards using her template!

Congratulations Jo, Cathy, Robyn, Cornelia, Darnell, Milla, Isabelle and Heather!  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, June 12th, for our next Watercooler Wednesday Challenge.  You won't want to miss all the wonderful designs by our Watercooler Artists.

WWC223 - The Watercooler Rock Star and Rockers


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

Dawn's choice for our Watercooler Rock Star is Linda's lovely floral card design.  Following the winner are the Watercooler Artists choices for the Watercooler Rockers.

Dawn's Rock Star:  Loopyloo has made a really pretty CAS card with beautifully coloured flowers. Love the idea of make the daffodils in such a gorgeous colour. Perfect to add any sentiment in time.

Congratulations Linda!  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:  Janice has made a stunning birthday card. I love the print background and the way the flowers are done to let it show through. Lovely design.

Heidi's rocker:  I love the way Lynne used that adorable little image of the soccer playing girl for her June's calendar page. The colouring is wonderful. A great change of pace for our Anything Goes challenge.

Kath's Rocker:  Claire has made a cute Father's Day card. The Aviator Kitten adds the cuteness, the coloring superb the added gears help "Man Up" the card.

Donna's Rocker:  I fell in love with Lynda's underwater card at first sight! Her great coloring, masking, and choice of layout are fantastic! Love how she also decorated the inside of your card. Just a wonderful job all round!!!

Tristan's Rocker:  I love the coffee cup sloths Nance has created. Their tumbling down the card with the spilled coffee beans is often how I feel in the mornings.

Michelle's Rocker:  I love Ishani’s ice cream cone card, it just proves you don’t need a ton of supplies to make a beautiful CAS card. Her use of the Pom poms for the ice cream is very creative and I love the hand drawn frame.

Helen's Rocker:  Mugdha has created such a sweet little scene on her fresh, beautifully coloured card.

Karen's Rocker:  Charlotte has created a beautiful CAS card. I love the red and gold alcohol ink hearts, the way Charlotte intertwined the two larger hearts and the hand-scored border.

Congratulations Janice, Lynne, Claire, Lynda, Nance, Ishani, Mugdha and Charlotte!  Here is your badge to proudly display on your blog designating you as one of our Watercooler Rockers.
