When Life Gives You Lemons...

What could be more optimistic than this little trooper of a stamp set?  I love it!  I wasn't sure that I even wanted it when I first browsed the catalog, but then I saw it used on someone else's facebook video and I was hooked.   And, I love lemons.  They are delicious, so tart and juicy and they smell divine. This stamp set also caters to the lime enthusiasts because it only requires a change of ink and paper.  And honestly, the segmented image could easily be an orange or tangerine.  I think we have all our citrus' covered!

This card also showcases a new product in the 2017-2018 annual catalog.  Texture Paste!  It's so easy to work with too.  I tinted mine with a little Daffodil Delight ink, spread it around on my silicone mat with the handy dandy spatulas and then spread it on using the Pattern Party Decorative Masks.  It dries very quickly too.

Did you notice the lovely dry embossing on the background paper?  Oh my goodness!!  Those 3D Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folders are so amazing!  They recommend spritzing a little water on the paper first, but I skipped that step and was still very pleased with my results.

 This card made me feel so happy when I created it.  The colors were so cheerful and the message so optimistic, that I made a whole bunch of them to share in a team swap.  I hope everyone else loves them too!
