Sublime Citrus

Welcome to Day 2 of the peeks for the newest release for Fresh Squeezed Stamps!

There are some great new sets being released this week and today, I'm sharing a card that I made using the new set called Sublime Citrus.

Here it is...

I had a lot of fun making this one! To start, I stamped my pitcher and glass with ice cubes images onto vellum using Versamark and heat embossed them with white embossing powder. Then, after fussy cutting them out, I took a Q-Tip dipped in yellow ink and coloured on the vellum to make my lemonade. I stamped two sentiments from Sublime Citrus stamp set, as well as the lemon wedge image and impressed the cardstock using a woodgrain impression plate. I adhered my stamped vellum images to the diecut cardstock and layered this over some patterned paper and cardstock.

Isn't it sweet? I just love all the white and yellow-- so crisp and fresh!

So, you'll want to head to the Fresh Squeezed Stamps blog for more inspiration from the other DT members using Sublime Citrus. There on the blog you will see the full stamp set AND have a chance to enter for your chance at the giveaway of this set!

I'm also linking this card to this week's Simon Says Stamp Challenge: Summer Food &/or Drink.

Thanks for looking!

Leigh you really rocked the vellum here! Your glasses and pitcher really look like they have lemonade in them. Great design.
