Cherry Cola Pop FIzz Cards

Hello Ladies,
Karen here and this is a bit of a change from my regular style. (It's a bit messy!)  My first idea was to create bubbles of fizzing cola. Using two different sizes of Dew Drops in three colors really added lovely dimension and a sense of movement. Then I realized how to create a cute bunch of cherries with Dew Drops and knew this was the perfect opportunity to create cherry cola. (if you happen to have a sentiment stamp that says, "Life is a bowl of cherries" I think Dew Drops would create perfect cherries to embellish it.)

Forest Brown Mini Dew Drops
Winter Retreat Dew Drops
River Bed Tear Drops


1.  Spray brown mist onto watercolor paper. Unscrew the top of the bottle and use the nozzle to flick or drip a variety of larger specks.

2.  Stamp a sentiment and heat emboss with black embossing powder.

3. Use brown ink to stamp concentric rings. Next, apply a strip with the embossed sentiment to the right side of the card.

4.  Use red ink to stamp cans of soda. Carefully, cut the cans out and add subtle shading details with colored pencils.

TIP -To create added dimension:
Apply grey shading along the outside edges of the sides of the can. 
To accentuate the cylinder shape, the shading should be darkest on the edges and gradually get lighter. The can should remain whitest in the middle.
(Left can- no shading, middle can- top & bottom shaded, right can- edges shaded)

5. Attach the can of tipped soda to the bottom of the card with foam tape and add a grey shadow under the can.

6. Use various shades of brown Dew Drops to create the fizzy soda bubbles. 

More Inspiration..

Alternatively, create a cluster of cherries by drawing a stem with a black marker.
Then adhere a red Dew Drop to create the fruit and green Tear Drops to create the leaves.

How to Add the Ultimate Finishing Touch to Your Scrapbook Layout (with bonus sketch)

Hello and welcome to the blog!  Shelly with you today sharing a recent layout I created during a scrap retreat with friends. 

I used the "Paprika"  paper collection from PhotoPlay for this layout.

For me, every layout and card I make begins and ends with Dew Drops. 

Dew Drops are such a versatile embellishment - my projects are either absolutely focused on my Dew Drops, or as in the case of this clean and simple layout, adding the Ultimate Final Touch!

The Goldenberry Dew Drop Mix was perfect for this Moroccan flavored paper collection.

The Ultimate Finishing Touch:

-Dew Drops add texture and dimension to busy patterns

-Dew Drops add a design element to "white space"

-Dew Drops make the perfect "bullet point" for journaling and phrases

Create your own version of this layout using this bonus sketch!

Thanks for stopping by the blog today - have a creative week!
