Challenge #174 - Water, Water, Everywhere!

Hi everyone and welcome to our first June Challenge - Water, Water, Everywhere!
Temperatures are climbing and what sounds more refreshing than water?

This theme can be anything to do with water.

Take a look at this weeks Design Teams wonderful use of this theme.
Tammy Hobbs

For this week's "Water Water Everywhere" Challenge, Tammy has created a sweet little Ocean Inspired greeting.  She started with a base from Brown Kraft Cover Weight Card Stock.  She trimmed another panel of white and embossed with a swirl background embossing folder and adhered to the card front. Next she die-cut some waves from various shades of blue and added to the bottom portion of the card. For a decorative touch, she added a length of Natural Burlap Ribbon and an aqua button laced with Natural Hemp Cord. She stamped and die-cut her Orca whale and added to the middle.  Lastly she stamped out her various words to create a sentiment on Brown Kraft Cover Weight Card Stock and placed them randomly at the top.  For additional pictures and a complete supply list, please visit Tammy at Creating Somewhere Under The Sun.

Karen Letchworth
For this week's Water, Water Everywhere! Challenge, Karen made a gift bag to hold two travel sized lotions.  She used a Small Kraft Coffee Bag With Window to which she added lengths of Oatmeal Cream and Strawberry Shortcake Hand-Stained Bias Tape, and also a strip of Blue and White Polka Dot Washi Tape and another of the Pink & White Polka Dot Washi Tape.  She added some fun stickers to "make it rain".  There are many great gift-giving bags sold at the Kraft Outlet ranging in price from $0.20 - $0.45.  They are easy to decorate, and perfect for delivering your gifts in style!  You can see more photos of Karen's project on her blog, My Cup Runneth Over, and she hopes you will stop by the Kraft Outlet to pick up some fun gift bags, and also to play along in this week's challenge.

Anitra Tovar

For this week's challenge Anitra created a card using some fun summer colors!  When Anitra thinks of "water water everywhere", she thinks of the beach!  She started with a Buff Ivory cardstock as her base.  Next she adhered some fun patterned papers to the base.  She chose a vintage image which she matted onto some Blackboard Stock Paper.  She then tucked a piece of a Vintage Black Journaling Card behind the image.  Next Anitra tied some of the Bright Hemp Cord which is a must for your summer projects!  These vivid colored cords were a perfect embellishment for this fun card.  For more information on Anitra's card please visit her blog Stamping While They Sleep.
