Watercooler Challenge – WCC23 – Mother’s Day Flowers Inspiration

WCC23 – Mother’s Day Flowers Inspiration

For this challenge Marsha provided us with a beautiful photo of a flower bouquet for a Mother’s Day (or other occasion) Inspiration.  Beautiful isn’t it?  My own Mom is no longer here to receive a bouquet but I hope she would like the paper version I’ve placed on a card for her and all my “other” mothers.  If you have a Mom or an “other” mother (a friend or person who you look up to and learn from and love as you would a mother) maybe this would be a good time to create your own card to let them know you are thinking of them.  Other mothers are wonderful to have in your life don’t you agree?

WCC 23 - Watercooler Challenge - Marsha's Mothers Day Flowers

Join the rest of the design team over at the Challenge blog website here to see the rest of the teams designs and to add your own with the linky doodad.  When you add your own design and there are more than three entries, one of you will be a challenge winner and have the option to place the winner’s badge on your own site.  Of course…you’ll also win bragging rights!


Here’s my interpretation of Marsha’s lovely inspiration piece using one of my favorite stamp sets from the 2015 Occasions Catalog.  Build a Bouquet provided the sentiment, bamboo looking background and the stamped elements on the flower.  This stamp set has it all that’s for sure.

WCC23 - Marsha's Mother's Day Flower Inspiration - CASE Creation by Jean Fitch


Stamps:  Build a Bouquet, Butterfly Basics (butterfly image).

Ink:  Calypso Coral, Crisp Cantaloupe, Baked Brown Sugar, So Saffron

Paper: Naturals Ivory, Crumb Cake, So Saffron, Calypso Coral, Whisper White, Wild Wasabi

Punches: Petite Petal, Pansy, Bitty Butterfly

Other:  Big Shot, Labels Framelit Collection, Flower Frenzy die (leaf bough), Rhinestone Basic Jewels, Wild Wasabi Twine from the Painted Blooms Cotton Twine Collection (Occasions Catalog), Crisp Cantaloupe Thick Baker’s Twine, Two Way glue pen, Sticky Strip, SNAIL

I also just happen to have project directions in a PDF format in case you want to make one of your own.   There is one direction I realized after rereading that I left off.  You can take a stylus and add lines to the the leaves on the bough to give a more natural and textured look.

Build a Bouquet Card

One quick note:  The Label’s Collection Framelits and the Flower Frenzy die are on the retiring product list and even better…are 50% off.  Cool!  Some of the items used are also in the Occasions Catalog which ends June 2.  Check with your demonstrator for details.

Some parts of the card are my own idea but the basic layout came from a number of Pinterest posts that came up when I did a quick Google search for inspiration using Build a Bouquet.  The primary being a post from Nicole Tugrul for a Connie and Mary Spring Collection Blog Hop.  You can see that card here.

That’s it for this challenge.  I hope you’ll join the Watercooler challenge and show us your own Flower Inspiration project and link up to us.  Don’t forget to check the Watercooler Challenge Blog post here to see who was the winner of the last challenge submissions by linky artists.    Check the challenge site for rules on competing for future challenges.

Hugs and Blessings to all my other mothers out there, friends and readers.
