If you haven’t seen the absolutely adorable stamp sets from Create A Smile take time to check out their cuties! You will love them! They even have digital freebies that you can use to enter into their bi-weekly challenges which is what I used today to create this card.
The current challenge is to create your own background and I did that using the freebie sentiment of Happy New Year which I repeated and printed out along with the celebration drink. I printed them out on x-press it paper so I could color the repeated YEAR with copic markers: B60, B63, B66, & B69. Love these colors, they are just the perfect bluish purple shade!
After coloring, I then die cut it using a stitched rectangle and pop dotted on a trimmed piece of silver glitter paper. I have to add glitter and shine where ever I can and New Years always has to have sparkle! Yeah! Next, I colored the celebration drink with the blue copics and added dark pinks with RV63, RV66, & RV69 on the passion fruit. I added a bit of cool greys with C0 & C1 to the ice cubes and lots of wink of stella for the liquid.
I fussy cut out the drink and glued it onto a smaller stitched rectangle vellum and adhered to the center of the card. For the final embellishments, I wanted to add a bit more of the dark pink and used some enamel accents to give a little pop.
Now it’s your turn to enter the current Create a Smile challenge!
