WWC238 - The Watercooler Rock Star and Rockers


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

Tristan's choice for our Watercooler Rock Star is Ma-Mi's sweet little elephant card design.  Following the winner are the Watercooler Artists choices for the Watercooler Rockers.

Tristan's Rock Star:  Ma-Mi has created an adorable card with her sweet elephants decorating the Christmas tree. She has used an inventive technique to make her background scene to match her digital stamp. Very clever and to great effect.

Congratulations Ma-Mi!  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:  Love the way Sherri has created this card. Using an actual plant is an interesting and unique technique. Very nicely done!

Dawn's Rocker:  I like the way Chris has added interest to her card by cutting the image into the 4 squares and round the opposing corners. Her image is also beautifully coloured.

Karen's Rocker:  Angie created a lovely card with a gorgeous leather looking background crafted from Glassine paper. The contrast is perfect for the happy sunflowers.

Helen's Rocker:  Heather's beautiful Autumn toned card features gorgeous leaves she has created with a great mix of colour, shape and texture. It was certainly worth trying out a new technique, Heather! Well done!

Heidi's Rocker:  Claire has created a wonderful clean and simple birthday card. The colours of the fox simply jump out at you. And the sentiment? What can I say? Absolute perfection.

Kath's Rocker:  Sheri has made a fun Christmas card! She used an adorable snowman as the image on her Z fold card. A great card.

Michelle's Rocker:  Jenny has created a beautiful background piece which makes that gorgeous leaf die just pop! A Stunning card, Jenny!

Congratulations Sherri, Chris, Angie, Heather, Claire, Sheri and Jenny!  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, September 18th, for our next Watercooler Wednesday Challenge.  You won't want to miss all the wonderful designs by our Watercooler Artists.

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

Michelle's choice for our Watercooler Rock Star is Toni's beautiful flower card design.  Following the winner are the Watercooler Artists choices for the Watercooler Rockers.

Congratulations Toni!  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:  I love Jan's adorable panda. I like the simplicity that allows the panda to stand out even with the patterned paper in the background. Nicely done!

Kath's Rocker:  Pooja has created a wonderful birthday card. Her no line water coloring is near perfect. Beautiful card.

 
Tristan's Rocker:  Kathy has blown me away with her card. I love her colour scheme and the subtle patterned background supports the movement of the wind.

Karen's Rocker:  Nicole has created a most eye-catching card. I love her background, color selection and darling bird. This is a card that would be so fun to receive. 
 
Helen's Rocker:  Jane has created a wonderfully eye-catching card with her cleverly designed wreath featuring beautifully coloured flowers and leaves that just 'pop' off the card front.

Dawn's Rocker:  A very sweet pink baby girl card by Ruth. The idea of doing a shaped card is inspiring. Love how she has layered her circles. And
what an adorable little image.

Heidi's Rocker:  Janny has used this stamp beautifully for both cards. I love the wonderful colours and stenciled background of the first. Such s great, vintage look!

Congratulations Jan, Pooja, Kathy, Nicole, Jane, Ruth and Janny!  Here is your badge to proudly display on your blog designating you as one of our Watercooler Rockers.
