Lemonade or watermelon?!
Posted on July 11 2018
Happy Summer everyone! It's Jeannie here today on the LDRS blog to share two super simple cards using the newly released Lemonade stamp set. I really love summertime and the fact days are just longer, sunnier, and happier!
Sometimes, I really love how a simple card turns out... so much so I made two of them to share today. For both of my cards, I masked off half the card and used distress inks to color up the card so it'd resemble a watermelon.
My first card is super simple: I literally masked off the card horizontally, added the ink, stamped the sentiment and watermelon, and colored in the watermelon. That was the card! SO easy, right?
For my second card, I added a little more to it. I masked off the card vertically for this one and inked it up the same. I used LDRS Watermark ink so I could do heat embossing on black cardstock. I wanted the "You're one in a melon" sentiment to be a strip across the bottom of the card.
Next, I decided that I wanted to stamp out a bunch of watermelons. I use the LDRS Raven Hybrid ink for this since the seeds of the watermelon are solid, so I want a good impression for each image. After doing so, I'll fussy cut all these images and it's ready to assemble.
I lined up the watermelon horizontally and added the sentiment strip. Such a simple card but it really packs a nice (fruity) punch!
I hope your summer is going well so far, and I hope this inspires you to make some simple cards.
See you next time on the blog!
