Lemonade Card

I got this stamp set when I was in Houston this summer. I was out on a little shopping trip with my friend Karen, aka flywhistle, when I ran across it at Joann's. I was at the Joann's in Norman recently and picked up the DCWV Lemon Flower stack, which I love so thought they might go together.

Supplies Used:
Cricut Expression
Cricut Lacy Labels cart
Autumn Leaves Slice of Life stamp set
DCWC Lemon Flower stack
Stampin Up Markers
Stardust Glitter pen
Cardstock various

What I really liked about the stamp set is that it had a couple of nice sentiments and swirls. I think the swirl stamp at the top and bottom of the inside of the card really made the inside look nice.

I think this would make a good little pick me up card for a friend.

The coloring was very fast to do and easy. I wanted to add a little color to the pitcher so just went around the inside edges with the Powder Blue ProMarker and then used the blender pen to take some of the color away. I used a cool grey marker for the shadowing at the bottom. The little bit of shadowing really does at a lot to a colored image.

Dang, now I want a stinkin glass of lemonade!! *okie's mouth puckers up just thinking about the fresh lemons*


  1. Great job coloring that Lemonade. I agree shading adds to anything you do. Especially in painting.

  2. Dang, now I want a stinkin' glass of lemonade too! *wink*
