Freckled Lemonade Collection

Makeup 4 the Weekend - M4TW37 Stash It!

The challenge at Paper Makeup Stamps this week is to make a collection of cards for your stash. I chose to use the Freckled Lemonade set for my cards - it's so perfect for some refreshing summer cards!

And you have a chance to win a single stamp of your choice from PMS, if you play along with this week's challenge. All you have to do is complete the challenge using Paper Makeup stamps and link it to their blog by Wednesday midnight EDT. Don't have any Paper Makeup stamps yet? No problem - there are digi stamps you can get from the PMS store instantly after purchase and you'll still have time to play along with us! {grin} C'mon, you know you want to! {wink}

Here are details and close-ups of my cards.

I love this citrus stamp because it can be a lemon, a lime, an orange, a tangerine - all depending on how you ink it up. Now it's really more yellow like a lemon on my card here, but for some reason the camera makes it look kind of orange. Oh well. I used Versamark Dazzle Frost ink on So Saffron cardstock and embossed with clear powder. I {heart} how sparkly these lemon wedges turned out that way.

On this card I colored the fruit with my copic markers three times and cut pieces out to layer them on top of each other for dimension. I loved the cards that Lisa K. and Lisa M. both made like that before. I also covered them with my clear spica glitter pen to make the fruit sparkle.

Again, I colored this image with my copic markers and added spica sparkle to the fruit. {grin}

For the pitcher, I decided to try paper piecing it. I used this More Mustard paper from a Prints Pack b/c I liked the look of the swirls. And I tried coloring the fruit with ink pads and a blender pen, but I like the look of the copics on the other cards better, I think. I still covered the fruit with some spica sparkle though, haha.

Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed day!
