Irish eyes are smiling….WWC59 – Bev’s Green Color Challenge

WWC59 – Bev’s Color Challenge in Green

Watercooler Wednesday Challenge - WWC59 Bev's challenge in green

Welcome to this weeks Watercooler Wednesday Challenge.  Today…Irish eye’s are smiling.  Well really…any eyes that like green…or candy are.

Today my eyes are in fact a tad on the green side.  Must be in anticipation of St. Patrick’s Day fast approaching.  The eyes are also smiling since Reece’s are one of my all time favorite candies!   A fun treat to share with neighbors, bank tellers, doctors and their staff and so on.  In fact…all the people who share my life.

Thanks Bev for the inspiration…and for going all green.  You really made me stretch my imagination.

Stamps: None

Inks:  None

Paper: Whisper White, Cucumber Crush, Mint Macaron, Mossy Meadow, Wild Wasabi

Punches:   Itty Bitty Accent Punch Pack (flower), 1-3/4″ Scallop Circle, 7/8″ Scallop Circle, Confetti Hearts Border, Bird Builder

Tools & Adhesives:  Baker’s Twine Combo Pack (Occasions Catalog), Basic Jewel Rhinestones, Two Way Glue Pen, Glue Dots.  Small Reece’s Cup Candy


Punch your two scallop circles (large one in Wild Wasabi and small in Mint Macaron).  If you want you can emboss with a folder or stamp with any type of background image.

Punch multiple hearts with the Confetti Heart punch from Mossy Meadow cardstock. Arrange the larger hearts into a shamrock shape and glue down to the Mint Macaron scallop circle.  I was lucky enough to have a piece fall out of the punch that I could use as a stem.  If you weren’t so lucky cut a stem piece yourself and glue down.   Attach the two scallop circles with glue dots to Reece’s candy top and bottom.

Tie a length of Baker’s Twine from the Combo Pack – I used the Mint Macaron and Black version.  Tie a bow and trim ends.

Punch leaf branch with the Bird Builder Punch in Cucumber Crush.  Cut down a bit and attach with glue dot to the hat.

Punch two Whisper White flowers with the Itty Bitty Accent punch and add a rhinestone to the center.  Attach flowers to the hat with glue dots.

All done.  Try not to eat!

I suggest you save a few Reece’s cups for inspiring eating during the decorating process.  Hand out the treat hats as fast as possible.  LOL!


Looking for more inspiration for fun, wild and sweet hat inspired treats for little leprechauns and others in your life.  Check out this Google search.

I was inspired in part by another demo’s idea here.  Thanks Julia!   I’m thinking that next time around I’ll a bit more texture by embossing or stamping on the scalloped circles.  Possibly even the flowers or branches.


That’s it for this challenge.  To see the rest of the design teams Color Challenge in Green contributions head on over to the Challenge blog website here.   That’s also where you can add your own creation 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 or runner up and have the option to place our badges on your own site.  Of course…you’ll also win bragging rights!

Check here to see the entries from last weeks challenge.  Unfortunately we didn’t have the required three so no winner.  However the 2 entries we had are well worth the look!  Check  here to see all the other linky and Artist Team entries.  Check the challenge site for rules on competing for future challenges.

I really hope you will add your own creations this week.  Really…this challenge is an easy one.  It’s all about the green and the teams entries should, I hope, inspire you with lots of different ideas to try.

I hope you’ll join us next Wednesday for yet another Watercooler Wednesday Challenge.
