Simon Says Challenge – Food and Drink

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!

  1. Hey Britta! I too am fantasizing about owning all of those yummy distress stains, but for now I ordered the four I know I’d use religiously. But, I will be buying the rest eventually…I have no self-control. ;)

    Love this card by the way! I watched Jess’s video and I’m going to try that technique tonight. We’ll see how well it goes.

  2. Gorgeous card Britta :-) I love the image ,, so very cute and the sentiment is PERFECT :-)

  3. Thanks for the shout-out dear! The card is perf. I’ve seen emboss resist before, but using the stains gives it such a unique look. And a punny sentiment is my fav. Love it all!

  4. This is adorable Britta! If you lived closer to me, you could come play with my Distress Stains! LOL! I don’t have all the colors, but got all the new colors as I mentioned. See, I don’t have the Concord Grape Stain yet. We could share! If you look on my blog, I did the Wrinkle Free technique on the Cat & Moon card. I posted this one on Sunday, the 14th. Something addicting to doing that technique!

  9. I think you need to do a distress stain video. I have 12 stains sitting on my desk and I’m kind of scared of them, not sure what to do with them. :) Very cute card, thanks for sharing the reverse stamp technique from Jess. I tried it a different way I had seen and it didn’t work so well, so maybe this way will work better. I love the colors!

  10. Absolutely adorable card! I love the sentiment with it and just another reason why I LOVE Lawn Fawn Stamp sets..they’re so versatile! I love the papers you used too! :)

    Simon Says Stamp!

  11. Wow Britta, love your resist technique. It looks amazing on the background paper of your card!! Those little lemonade glasses are so cute. Thanks for the tip on that technique too!! Hope you are having a wonderful weekend teamie!
    xoxo, Christine
