WWC314 – Dawn’s Challenge: All About Occasions

I was excited to have my card chosen as Winner of The Blog Named Hero – Anniversary Challenge! Thanks so much!

Thank you so much to Pammie’s Inky Pinky Challenge for selecting my card for an Honorable Mention!

Hello and welcome

Today I’m back with a new challenge over at Watercooler Wednesday. Dawn is the hostess for today’s Watercooler Wednesday Challenge: All About Occasions.

May be an image of text that says "STONS Everything We Celebrate! Christmas, Easter, New Year's, Valentine's, St. Patrick's Easter, Mother's Day, Father's Day, Canada Day Fourth of July, Hallowe'en, Birthdays, Birth, Wedding, Anniversary, Thanks, Sympathy, Congrats And so many more occasions WWC316 Cathy's Challenge: All About Occasions"

I have had this beautiful HA Window on the Garden Fancy Die for a little while. I fell in love with it, but this is the first time I’ve used it.

I decided it looked like you were looking out from a conservatory into the back garden.

So after Distress watercolouring the flowers on the die, I watercoloured a simple garden scene on a piece of card for the background. After it was dry, I stamped a stalk from HA STAMPtember – Real Fowers VIntage stamp set on both sides. Once dry it was added to the card front.

A strip of kraft cardstock had the sentiment a gold heat embossed, before adding added to the bottom of the window like a seat /bench.

Double layers of fun foam was added to the back of the card front. It was then added to the card front to make a 3D window look.

I love the way this looks. A great place to relax!! πŸ™‚

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

Cheers

Helen

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.

  4. Dawn, your card looks amazing! Love the plants in the conservatory and “outside” in the garden.
    The clean style of the card is a perfect contrast to the “wild growing” plants and nature.
    Thank you for sharing this beauty in the Uniko Spring Challenge #64.
    Creative greetings from Wiebke (Uniko Brand Ambassador)
