Hi there everybody!! Its Sunday afternoon here in New Zealand and we finally have some sunshine after a rainy Saturday (although it was good for lots of card making.......).
I'm still having a fabulous time as one of the July Guest Designers at Your Next Stamp. Today is 'Feature Day' and a YNS customer suggested the theme of 'Christmas in July or use Christmas colours red/green'. Unfortunately I don't own any YNS Christmas stamps yet....so I created this card with the perfect red/green fruit:
Its the middle of Winter here, so I can't wait to plant my strawberry plants soon and have lots to eat in Summertime!! Also when I was younger and traveling through the U.S. I spent a few days in New Orleans and had the biggest, most delicious Strawberry Daiquiri at a place with a fountain that had flames coming out with the water. It was my only drink of the night but it was all I needed (if you know what I mean.....).....
I started off by cutting a panel of white CS smaller than my card front and stamping the strawberry image from YNS 'Happy Hour' stamp set all over it. I then coloured them in with my Altenew Artist Markers.
Using the wine glass die from the YNS 'Happy Hours Co-ordinating Dies' I die-cut the middle of the panel. I placed the panel over the card front and stamped the wine glass (also from the 'Happy Hour' set) within the die-cut space. This was also coloured with Altenew Artist Markers and I then added Glossy Accents to the red part of the glass to give the illusion of liquid. The panel was then popped over top with foam tape.
I stamped the sentiment (also from YNS 'Happy Hour') on some white CS, backed it with black CS and put on foam tape. And I added more shine with some Neat and Tangled sequins.
I'm going to link this to the Simon Says Stamp - Wednesday Challenge where their theme is 'Use a die or punch'.
Will also link to The Cat's Pajama's Challenge #348 where their theme is:
I really suggest you pop over to the Your Next Stamp Blog to see what the Design Team have created for 'Feature Day' and leave a comment because you have a chance to win a stamp set of your choice!!!
