AYSI276 Sunny Lemonade

Happy Friday, peeps!  Happy weekend!  Time for a new As You See It challenge, and I love this one!  Check it out:


Normally, I would have gone for COFFEE, but that refreshing picture challenged me to go for something different!  Although I have lamented that I have almost NO fruit stamps, I did find a lemon one in the pile of stamps my friend gifted me!  So here we go:

I used the retired Jar of Love stamp set to create my "glass" and some vellum to create the lemonade.  You can't see it in the photo, but after coloring the back of the vellum with a Blend, I covered the front with Wink of Stella!  It looks so "refreshing"!  I added a straw from Jar of Flowers and the lemon is from an old SAB set called A Happy Thing.  I fussy cut it out after coloring it with some reinkers, then adhered it to a plaid DSP background:

And since nothing is sunnier than a pretty yellow lemon and some fresh lemonade, I added a sentiment from the retired Sunny Sentiments:

This was a fun card to create!  I am going to leave the inside blank and when the occasion arises to use it, I'll stamp something then!  And I am going to enter this in the current Krafty Chicks challenge, which is to stamp something!

I hope you'll find something that inspires you this week when you peruse our challenge photo!  Remember, it doesn't have to be lemonade, it can be any beverage!  The design team has some really fun, cute samples, so be sure to check them out at the AYSI blog, then share yours as well!  Thanks for visiting today!

I LOVE this LeAnne. I don't like lemonade but your card makes me want to go over to the refreshing side!

Super cute card, LeAnne! After the heat we had this week, a tall glass of lemonade would fit the bill!! Love the gingham paper and your added lemon! The sentiment is perfect, too! Happy Friday to you!

Sunny, refreshing, and the cutest straw to suck it all in! Thanks for the sunny [and adorable] thoughts today!

Yum, LeAnne! That's the freshest lemonade ever - great job with the vellum! Gotta love that straw, too - perfect!

Your lemonade looks so real! I was hoping you'd explain how you did it - very clever. I have no fruit stamps either. :-)

Lisa Elton said...

Love the colors and the pop of orange from the straw! Love that you actually put it IN the lemonade! Cute card!

Heather Cooper said...

LeAnne, that lemonade looks so thirst-quenching! I love the gingham in the background, especially the colour! Such a clever card!

That jar of lemonade is so inviting - just what you need to cool down on a hot day and so perfectly inspired by our badge this week! I love the gingham background and stripy straw too. Great card!
