This layout captures the bittersweet final 24 hours of our sweet dog, Ginger’s time with us.  When we let SG know this was Ginger’s last night with us because she was so sick, SG was so heartbroken and upset.   When we asked what would help her out, SG decided she would stay with Ginger, to include sleeping with her, so Ginger would never been alone!  SG took a bad situation and made it as positive as it could be. SG was going to be there to help Ginger whenever, hence “Lemonaide”.

I used E1027 – Framework Alphabet – to create the title.  I think this has to be one of my favorite alphabet stamp set because you can color it in.

I stamped the lemons in Canary and rolled the edges with Topiary.  I fussy cut them out.  Coated them with Z679 Liquid Glass and let them dry overnight.  I used Z1919 Purple Shimmer Trim to accent the pennants.

The Sweet Taste of Summer Card

With May coming to an end, here’s one of my last cards using Taste of Summer.

For this Sweet Taste of Summer card I combined a two different stamp sets, Taste of Summer CC1039 and Ice-Cold Summer B1478, along with the CC1038 Taste of Summer Paper Pack for May!

stamp images 72cac1c0-2848-4787-9e67-2d213eb48a92This card was inspired by a scrapbook page I saw done by CTMH and I turned the idea into a card.  I used the fruit stamps to create a random pattern down the front of the card.  Used the Cricut to cut out the tag with Z1970 Artiste.

For the glass, I outlined it by hand. Used Whisper for the ice cubes.  Added some prisma glitter for some bling.  Fussy cut the glass and used 3D tape to pop it up.
