WWC226 - Dawn's Masculine "Anything Goes" Challenge

Woo Hoo!  Dawn is hosting our awesome Masculine "Anything Goes" challenge this week.  What a lot of fun since Father's Day was just over the weekend and a lot of people made some great cards for the many Dads of all ages out there.  Of course there are so many other occasions for masculine cards, too.


We're sorry to announce that Donna decided to begin part-time employment and, with all the other things going on in her life, simply can't juggle the challenge as well.  We'll miss her inspiring cards.

WWC225 - The Watercooler Rock Star and Rockers


Drum roll, please!  It's Tuesday and time to announce our Watercooler Rock Star and Watercooler Rockers for Donna'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!

Donna's choice for our Watercooler Rock Star is Trina's cute little elephant.  Following the winner are the Watercooler Artists choices for the Watercooler Rockers.

Donna's Rock Star:  Trina created a SUPER cute card with a little elephant swinging through the clouds!!! Love her background coloring, and the elephant and balloon are perfect! I've never tried a swing card, but with Trina's inspiration I sure AM gonna try one.

Congratulations Trina!  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.

Karen's Rocker:  I love the beautiful bloom that Kylie created with Zig markers. The cover die panel is the perfect backdrop for her vivid pinks and oranges.

Marsha's Rocker:  I love the background Tammy has created using the nail polish art technique.  The colors are bright and vibrant and the cacti with the blue flowers are very pretty.

Dawn's Rocker:   Angie has made a striking card. The pop of colour against the black background drew my eye. The addition of the fabric tape gives a great look. Also super impressed that Angie only used one colour of ink for the flowers.

Tristan's Rocker:  Steph has created a wonderful scene on her card, I love the textures, the colouring of her birds and her persistence with all that fussy cutting.

Michelle's Rocker:  Charlotte has created an adorable card. I love the scene she has created and her colouring in of those bears is just perfect!

Heidi's Rocker:   Cat has created a darling CAS card for her father from his cats. Such cute images and so very well coloured and shaded. I love the way she grounded them with that pillowy gray around them.

Kath's Rocker:   Lesley's Mr. Fixit Is a great birthday card! Her coloring is wonderful and the paper she chose compliments the image well.

Congratulations Kylie, Tammy, Angie, Steph, Charlotte, Cat and Lesley!  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 19th, for our next Watercooler Wednesday Challenge.  You won't want to miss all the wonderful designs by our Watercooler Artists.

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.

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.
