CCMC468 Lemon Zest

After seeing SO many cute cards done with the Lemon Zest and punch, I decided that I needed to buy it!  I’ve used it on my Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge card this week!  It’s a fun sketch challenge!

 

 

Here’s my card:

 

 

Here are the details:

  • The base is 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 Wild Wasabi Cardstock, scored at 4-1/4 and folded.
  • On the 4 x 5-1/4 layer of Whisper White, the lemon slice was stamped randomly in the background with Daffodil Delight Ink.
  • Two squares were cut from the Pick A Pattern DSP (2-1/4 and 2″ squares) and added diagonally to the front.
  • A 3/4 x 4-1/2 strip of Wild Wasabi cardstock was stamped with the greeting in Tuxedo Black Ink, then added across the front.
  • The lemon and lemon slice were stamped with Daffodil Delight Ink on Whisper White, the leaves with Wild Wasabi Ink.  (I must admit I forgot to use the punch…I hand cut them out!  lol!)  They were added to the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Two yellow Glitter Dots were added to the DSP for a little sparkle!

 

Make sure to check out the rest of the challenge team over on Create with Connie and Mary to see what they did with the sketch this week!  LOTS of great ideas!

And here’s my card!

 

CCMC395 Apple of My Eye
 

I haven’t had the opportunity to use my Apple of My Eye stamp set and I thought it was perfect for this sketch!  A little Wink of Stella on those lemon slices and they look SO real and ready to eat!  lol!

  • The base is 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 Crushed Curry, folded in half and the bottom corners rounded with the Project Life Corner Rounder punch.
  • On top is a 4 x 5-1/4 layer of Whisper White with the bottom corners rounded.
  • Across the front is a 1-1/2 x 5 piece of Have a Cuppa Designer Paper in the lemon slice print with two 1/4 x 4-1/2 strips of the Bermuda Bay print on top and bottom.
  • The Lots of Label Framelit was cut from Bermuda Bay cardstock and stamped with the Perfect Pairings (FREE SAB set) in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.  It was placed on the front at an angle.
  • Two lemon slices were stamped with Crushed Curry Ink on Whisper White and punched with the 1-3/4 Circle Punch, then one of them cut in half.  A little Wink of Stella was added to the slices.  They were popped up on the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • A few gold Sequins were scattered on the front for a little extra bling.

 

Isn’t that fun?  I love the colors and how the sketch laid this out!  OK…make sure to check out the rest of the Challenge Team over on Create with Connie and Mary this week!  Then grab your stamps and play along!
