Lemons and Iced Tea

August 2, 2017

I have been enjoying W Plus’s new Southern Sentiments stamp set. The sentiments are just so fun! I don’t own the set, so I took one of the sayings and made it my own. I also changed it just a bit to fit my recipient better.






Size:  Horizontal top fold A2 card

Extra Details: I began this card by die cutting a large rectangle from some Lawn Fawn Let’s Polka paper. I adhered this paper to a white card base. I used a scrap piece of the same paper to die cut the letters in the word “lemons.” I used my MISTI and the matching stamp set to stamp the black outlines on the die cut letters.

Next, I cut a strip of water color paper about 3 inches wide and 5.5 inches long. I stamped the jar in light grey ink to help guide me when stamping the sentiment. Using an alpha set, I stamped the beginning of the sentiment in black ink. I adhered the yellow die cut letters next, and used the same alpha set to finish the sentiment. I set this panel aside to dry for a while.

Using another piece of water color paper, I stamped the jar, label, lid, and a lemon. I added the words “iced tea” to the label using a third alpha set. I used Distress Inks to water color in the jar, label, and lid. Once dry, I fussy cut everything out. I used more Distress Ink and a foam blending tool to color the edges of the images.

Then, I stamped the solid lemons and leaf on the sentiment panel. I adhered the jar flat to the panel and the label flat to the jar. I used foam tape on the lid and solid lemon. I adhered the sentiment panel to the card front.

I stamped a few more solid lemons and leaves on the inside of the card for interest.

  1. Love the cute card and that you actually made the sentiment your own. I have been purging lately and was about to give away my alphabet sets. I think you just made me rethink that. Thanks , I think lol.
