Birthday · Cute cards · Punch Art



How fun are lemons when it starts to feel like summer??  We made this card for my Stamp a Stack of cards a few weeks ago.  This card is simple to make with the Lemon Zest stamp set and coordinating Lemon Punch!  The lemons have the thick black and white striped paper from the Petal Passion DSP (that is retiring! -sniffle!) that anchors the main images.  Then the petals and lemons were stamped with Old Olive and Daffodil Delight.  To create depth, we used dimensionals.


Next, we wrapped Whisper White Baker’s Twine around the Whisper White piece of paper.  To finish the card, we added Basic Rhinestones and a bright Lemon Lime Twist card base!

Such a fun card for a birthday-and uni-sex too!

Coloring Embossing Paste

I LOVE the new embossing paste!!  I was playing around with it the other day and wanted to try coloring it!  So easy!  All you need is the Embossing Paste, Spatulas, a re inker, and a tray (o-r silicone mat).

I dropped about a half dollar sized amount onto the tray.  Then I mixed about 4-5 drops of re-inker and mixed well.  I also added Dazzling Diamonds to it, but that was after this card.  Very pretty!  And I just saw someone add scents to the paste!  Scented cards!!

After you mix your paste to your desired color, then you can place your mask/stencil over your surface and spread the paste with the spatula.  I swiped back and forth a few times and then scraped it even on top of the mask.  Carefully pull up and let dry!

TIP: It dries very fast!  Clean your mask and other materials as soon as possible with warm soapy water.  

To make the lemons more realistic, I followed the Daffodil Delight with Versa Mark and Clear Embossing powder.  Then I heat set it.  Layered the lemons with dimensionals and some Linen Thread.  I used this card as our club technique this month!
