WWC251 – Dawn’s “All About Occasions” Challenge

P1080437 (3)

Hello and welcome

I’m back with the new challenge over at Watercooler Wednesday!  This week  Dawn is  hosting the “All About Occasions” Challenge.  So it should be easy for you to join in by sharing your Christmas creations!Image may contain: text

This week I used some of the images from Art Impressions – Tropical Christmas Stamp Set.  Just perfect as our temperatures here have been in the high 30’s C!

After stamping, they were watercoloured using Distress Ink and Tombow markers before being fussy cut.

I just had to add some sparkle with some Glitter Jelly Roll Pen and some Clear Nuvo Glitter Drops.

The Mama Elephant – Tri Window Cover – Creative Cuts frame was cut from white card. The backing was kraft card with some Distress Ink blending to make it look like the beach!

The frame was added with raised tape and the other elements added with a combination of raised tape and glue.

Don’t forget to head over to our blog to check out the wonderful inspiration from the rest of our Design Team.

I look forward to seeing what you create this week!

Thanks so much for taking the time to visit.  I love to read your comments.

Have a great day

I live in sunny Queensland, Australia with my husband and daughter. Since I was a child, I have always loved to create and have enjoyed all kinds of crafts, sewing and painting. China painting helped develop my understanding of colour and design. Over the last few years card making has taken up a major part of my crafting time as I love to play with new techniques and mediums. Since beginning my blog, entering various challenges has encouraged me to grow my skills and creativity.

  3. I love the idea of a tropical Christmas, Helen … even had one once in your neck of the woods! Your cuties here capture the fun brilliantly! Thanks so much for playing along with us at Time Out! Hugs, Anita 🙂


  4. Your tropical Santa Claws card has planted a smile allll over my face! Hard to imagine temps in the high 30s at this time of year; usually we’re in the minus 30s! Oh well…Spring and Summer will be here before I know it! Thrilled you shared this gem in the JUGS gallery!


    1. So pleased I brought a smile to your face, Carol!! I just can’t imagine a Christmas so cold and snowy although the pictures on our cards show snowy scenes!! Not at all like us! Here it is hot and dry, we’re in the middle of a terrible drought, and now large numbers of devastating bush fires are raging across much of the country ! So I also loved the idea of a tropical Christmas!! Wishing you a wonderful 2020!!! 🙂
