Lemonade anyone?

Lately with the heat I’ve been thinking of summer themed cards and I remembered a oldie but goodie stamp set that I’ve had for years.

I decided the lemonade stamp was perfect for a few fun cards.

This was the first card I made.  I love it but only had one piece of this cardstock so I could only make one.  I think I need to look through a cardstock pack I bought at Tuesday Morning yesterday to see if their is a similar color in the pack.

I liked this yellow patterned paper but somehow this card didn’t ‘pop’ as much as I’d like so only one of these too.  I stamped the image on some adhesive cotton that I’ve been hoarding, hanging on to, for just the right project.

This image I colored a bit more subtle or muted.  I think I like the brighter coloring a bit better but think I’ll be playing with this stamp for a bit and coloring it lots of different ways.

Now to go pour myself a cool glass of lemonade.

I don’t squeeze my own lemons, I’ll leave that to Minute Maid.

I do add a bit of lingonberry concentrate for an added berry treat.

If you want a fresh fruit drink add some watermelon, strawberries or whatever fruit you have on hand to make your own gourmet lemonade.

Enjoy your summer!
