Stampin' Celebration Inspiration Challenge #12

Hi Stamping Friends!  Well I think I might be getting back into the stamping mood.  And these gorgeous pics from the latest Stampin' Celebration Inspiration Challenge sure helped me get over my slump.  I just LOVE the bright, citrusy colors!!  They just make my lips pucker and my mouth water and make we crave a glass of my grandma's fresh lemonade.  My grandpa and grandma has two lemon trees in their backyard.  Grandpa would pick them and grandma would juice them and freeze the juice.  She would make us lemonade everytime we came to visit.  Which was a lot!!

I used the colors in the inspiration pic and combined them with the sketch challenge over at The Sweet Stop blog.  I just realized after uploading the pic of the sketch that I left off one of the main panels.  Whoops!  I did remember to use a tag though.  That was the bonus part of the challenge.  Well, I like how this card turned out anyway.  I used a lot of my "favorites" on it.


It was fun to play with some new stuff.  The card base is Whisper White layered with Pear Pizzazz.  The Pumpkin polka dot DSP is from the Island Oasis pack from the Summer Mini Catalog.  The flowers ( Daffodil Delight and Pumpkin Pie) were made using the Floral Fusion Sizzlet die.  The white brads are topped with the Jewels Basic Rhinestones.  The cake pedestal also has some of the Jewels Basic Pearls.  I LOVE the SU! Jewels!!!  I love that they come in multiple sizes.  I love that they are self-stick.  And I love the price!!  They are only $4.95 for 150 pieces!!!  You can't beat that!

After making this card, I decided I "need" to get the Jewelry Tag punch and Tiny Tags stamp set.  How have I lived this long without them?!

I hope you will play along with us this week at the Stampin' Celebration Inspiration Challenge!  I can't wait to see what bright, cheerful creation you come up with.

Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Stamping!

Wow Krystal, that's a WAY CUTE card! It's funny - the colors in that challenge are about the same I used in my shoebox swap card I recently made (still wanna get the CA group together sometime from SA!).
