It’s time for another weekly challenge with the lovely Simon Says Stamp Challenge blog! This week’s theme is Food and Drink, and I absolutely can’t wait to see the entries for this one. They should be interesting, for sure. Hehe.
Here’s what I came up for this week using Lawn Fawn’s Cozy Christmas to make two high-fiving lemondades.
The lemonades are actually just one stamp, but the second one (on the left) is stamped using this technique that I learned from Jess Larsen (view her awesome view tutorial here). It’s so cool to have one stamp high-five itself. ;) The rest of the card is done using Distress Stains. I did emboss resist on the background and then saturated the background of the card with Spun Sugar Distress Stain so that it would seep under the embossing for a nice pink-cream effect. Then, after letting it dry for a bit, I used Dusty Concord Distress Stain over the embossing again. The ribbon across the bottom of the card is from May Arts and also colored with Spun Sugar Distress Stain. I’m loving these things! Anyone want to send me the other 35? ;)
Make sure to check out the challenge blog and add your own creation this week to the list. You’ll be entered to win this lovely prize:
Thanks so much for stopping by today! I have to admit, this challenge was a difficult one for me, but I ended up making one of my favorite cards in recent memory. Maybe that’s a sign you should push yourself and join as well. See you over at the challenge blog!
