Hope you are having a super Sunday! If you have some time to get crafty, we'd love to have you join us at The Paper Players where Claire is hosting the CAS challenge and is asking for a summer beverage theme. Not going to lie...I had to really put on my thinking cap for this as I had given away an old stamp set that would have been perfect for it (isn't that always the way?!). I didn't want to go with a wine theme, so went to Pinterest for some
ideas and came across this lemonade glass made from vellum and CASEd the idea from the photo at right. I stenciled with Daffodil Delight ink (SU) and a Tim Holtz Bubble stencil on the card base instead of embossing. I made my own "glass" from
heavy weight vellum and scored each side at 1/8th inch and folded it downward (the sample on the right used narrow score tape to adhere it). I placed foam squares behind the lemons to adhere it to the base (*note the couple of slices inside the lemonade).
I used several shades of yellow Copic markers (Y06, Y08, Y13) to color the back side of the vellum. The Lemon Zest stamp set with matching punch by Stampin' Up was the perfect match for my yummy lemonade. Note that I slightly sponged some green on the lemon stamp before applying the stamp to paper. I robbed the tiny straw off of a juice box (always in my frig in case the grands come to visit!). The sentiment is...you guessed it...another of the Simple Strips Background by Taylored Expressions. This was a lot of fun to create once I had the idea in mind!
