Fruitylicious Lemons

This post originally appeared on the Picket Fence Studios Blog, on June 23, 2020. 


I have a bright and cheery card to share with you today - featuring the new Fruitylicious Stamp, the Pucker Up Stamp Set, and the Pucker Up Coordinating Die.  As soon as I saw the new Fruitylicious Stamp, I knew I had to combine these two into a card! 

I began by lining up the Fruitylicious Stamp in my MISTI.  This 3.5" stamp, is one of Picket Fence Studios repeating stamps - meaning you can stamp it one on top of another, or side by side, to create a seamless pattern.  I inked the stamp set up with Squeezed Lemonade Distress Ink, in a few random spots, and then went back over the spots I had "left blank" with Shabby Shutters Distress Ink.  Then I stamped the image onto a piece of white card stock.  I realigned my card stock, to repeat the pattern, and again used the Distress Inks to create the variegated background. 

 I stamped the lemon image from the Pucker Up Stamp Set, in Black Hybrid Ink, onto both yellow and green card stocks.  Then I die cut both image using the Coordinating Die.  Once die cut, I used a pair of small snips to cut the lemons out of the yellow die cut.  

I used the Life Changing Blender Brushes to add a bit of extra shading to the die cuts, in the form of Fossilized Amber, and Mowed Lawn Distress Inks.  I also used a white colored pencil to fill in the flower on the green die cut.  Then I adhered the yellow lemons on top of the lemons on the green die cut.  

I stamped and white heat embossed the "Pucker Up" sentiment onto a piece of aqua card stock, which I also used to mat the Fruitylicious background.  I also die cut a vellum circle to add a little more separation to the lemon image, from the background.  

 The pieces were adhered together, and attached to the white card base, with liquid adhesive and foam tape.  A few colorful sequins from the Margarita Sequin Mix completed the card.  

This card was fun to create, and a lot quicker than you might think.  It'll hopefully bring a little sweet (& sassy!) sunshine to whomever does receive it.   

Thanks for stopping by!
