Hello and welcome

Today it’s time for the next challenge over at Watercooler Wednesday!  This week  Kath is hosting the “All About Occasions” Challenge.

The other day I saw a  post from the “Create A Smile” and looked at some of their fun products.  As I don’t yet own any of their goodies, I used one of their freebies. It was also a good chance for me to play around with printing out and working with digi stamps. Something I don’t do often.

After printing this fun image, I watercoloured to make the drink look as though the different layers were slowly mixing together. I then added layers of Wink of Stella before fussy cutting. So difficult to see the shimmer but so pretty IRL!

The oval was due cut from black card and I added some small hand drawn hearts and dots and then gold embossed along with the edges.

The sentiment 9an old one from Verve stamps) was gold heat embossed inside a banner from Concord & 9th, also gold heat embossed. (With an extra on vellum)

The fun background DP with the gold pineapples came from a pad from Aldi!  I thought it worked with this fun drink.

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.

Stay safe in these difficult times and have a good 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.

  1. Shimmer is so hard to capture on camera, but I do love adding it to a card, it’s one of those little extras that make people go ‘how did they do that’ lol. We are so very clever lol. And we are allowed to have a ‘party’ of 10 outside as of Friday, yippee… still can’t go anywhere yet though haha


    1. Won’t it be great when we can finally catch up with friends!!! Hope this card brought a smile and thoughts of great things to come! We’ve certainly learn what really matters to us! Take care and enjoy the weekend!!!! 🙂


  2. You have created a really pretty feminine card, we can but dream of tropical beaches this year (I was due to go to one in a couple of weeks !), thanks so much for sharing and joining in at Allsorts challenge.
