Lemonade dreams

When it is a 100 degrees outside and 99% humidity my thoughts turn to refreshing dreams of lemonade.  Alabama this time of year can be brutally hot! And our humidity just makes it sticky to even walk out side. Now, I am a professed heat loving girl! But, when it get so hot with the humidity really high I just want to be at a beach with my feet in the water…or maybe on a lazing creek canoeing…or even on a float in the pool! Key is being as still as possible near water to cool off and a big glass of Lemonade!! There is just something so refreshing about  fresh lemons during a heat wave!!!  Thinking about this lead to a card that combines three Amazing stamp sets.  Lemon Zest, Coffee Cafe’, and Dare to Dream

  • Colors used are Lemon Lime Twist and Crushed Curry with a little Daffodil Delight and Old Olive
  • I’m completely obsessed with square cards right now.  This square is 5 1/2 by 5 1/2.  The tie dye panel is 4 by 4.
  • The cup is stamped in Old Olive and watercolor with Crushed Curry.
  • The Lemons and Limes are stamped in Lemon Lime Twist and Crushed Curry.  The punched out with coordinating circle punches
  • The Daffodil Delight is brought in on the Tie Dye panel.  This panel was created using a coffee filter, Lemon Lime Twist ink and Daffodil Delight ink, and baby wipes.  Just use the baby wipe to add ink to the coffee filter.  Such fun

Lemon Zest what fun!

The Lemon Zest Stamp Set is full fun! Awesome sentiments and a beautiful lemon or lime. Then to top it off a slice that could be a lemon, lime, or orange.  This set is perfect for Summer time card making. I love the “fresh feel” .

I really love how the sentiments work together.  “if life gives you lemons” …”squeeze it for all it’s worth”  Then there is ” Life’s short” …”live it with zest” …how adorable both these are. I can’t wait to use them!!!

If you have been following my post lately, then you know I am having loads of fun with the new Pattern Party Decorative Mask and Embossing Paste.  I think these are my two favorite new products! Love them both. Today, I am using the small diamond shaped stencil with Lemon Lime Twist embossing paste.

  •  Stampin’ Up! has even given us a punch for the lemon and the leaves…
  • The colors used are Tranquil Tide, Lemon Lime Twist, and So Saffron
  • The embossing paste is tented using the Lemon Lime Twist reinker.

The Lemon Zest stamp set is offered in a bundle along with the coordinating punch. This bundle saves you 10%!!!  Whoop Whoop!!!

I just love this sample from Stampin’ Up! So pretty with all the layers of texture they created. With the embossed background, the banner and circle layer, and then the lemons.
