A Lovely Lemon With Free Stamps

Lemon Card

This lovely lemon is part of the “A Happy Thing” stamp set, available free during Sale-A-Bration. What’s even better? The Blendabilities are also available free!

The minute I saw it this stamp, I knew it would be pretty with Crystal Effects, and the minute I saw that Blendabilities were available free, I knew I would finally try them. ( It may seem like I have every Stampin’ Up! product known to mankind, but I am actually quite a penny pincher and I love how easy Stampin’ Up! makes it to earn free products.)

For this card, I used the free stamp set and two sets of free Blendabilites, along with a Memento ink pad and Crystal Effects.

Crystal effects

In the light, crystal effects really brings the lemon to life. I tried to capture it on film for you, although it is even more amazing in real life.

Lemon Card Closeup

I am excited about several things with this card.

First, I am so glad I finally added Blendabilites to my collection- after only a little bit of practice, I was very happy with the results. I will definitely be using them regularly. If you decide to try them, remember that you have to use the Memento ink pad to keep the image from bleeding.

Next, that Painted Blooms paper is so amazing! I simply love paper and the watercolor look on this set is gorgeous.

Thirdly, I had been waiting for a chance to use Crystal Effects and that lemon is perfect.

Lastly, during Christmas I had tried cutting the leaf from the Flower Fair die cut set on burlap ribbon, but I hadn’t found a way to use it yet. It adds a nice texture to this card.

In the cold gray of January and the ongoing sadness of world events, card making is a beautiful way to be creative and use our talents to reach out to others and share a little love.

“And now these three remain, faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.” I Corinthians 13:13

I hope your day is filled with good health, lots of love, and of course time to craft.
