Did you like all the fabulous Stampendous inspiration last month during the Citrus challenge? I am still in the citrus 'climate' and I hope the project I am sharing today will get your creative juices flowing (literally!) :).
Bright citrus colours have got ‘summer’ written all over – and it’s my favourite time of year. Strangely enough, this theme has been quite a challenge for me as here in the UK we were slowly forgetting what summer was like ☹. In April some official people had this idea that we were at serious risk of drought as we didn’t get enough rain over winter. As a result, they announced a ‘hose pipe ban’. It’s been raining almost non-stop ever since – sigh….
For this project you will need:
US crafters - Agapanthus Cluster stamp
UK crafters - Agapanthus Cluster stamps
Other supplies: Plain cardstock and patterned papers, floral/leafy embossing folders, Sizzix Movers & Shapers L Die - Tag & Bookplates, Orange Peel Stickles, Peeled Paint and Spiced Marmalade distress inks, Lemon Zest Glimmer Mist, paper doily, ribbons and flowers to embellish.For full instructions on how I made the card, hop over to the Stampendous blog :).
I really the way the card has turned out, especially how the embossing complements the stamped images.
I really miss being on holiday... oh, we has such an amazing time! The place and the lake where we were staying was breath-takingly beautiful...
Hmmm, I think I fancy some zesty lemonade now... lol ;).
Till next time!
