Make Lemonade!

White cardstock for easel card
Manila Folder scrap for inside card and base
Lemon Digital Stamp compliments of A Creative Need

Spotlight technique use on lemon slice digital stamp
1 inch Fiskar Circle punch used for the spotlighted colored part of the digital - you print off the digital twice - punch out a section - color it - and then glue it on the other print out - a clever and nice look - I think ~ This is my second card creation using this technique - I am liking it! Give it a try to see if you like it - Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy!

Spectrum Noir Markers - blue for the tiny flower stamp  - yellow for the lemon slice
K & Company yellow and black paper clip
Blue Flower Charm
Robyn's Nest Glitter Bee Sticker - I won this sticker set
Robyn's Nest Blue Butterfly - I won this sticker set
Shiny Blue Thread for SEWING on the base of the card
Little Yellow Bicycle -  Lemon 3-D Dimensional
Tiny stamp flower Hero Arts
Border Punch by Fiskar - Kaleidoscope
Studio G Green ink for distressing  Kaleidoscope punch out
Black Memento Ink
Sentiment created by me in Word and merged with digital before printing

Hi Crafters - Well, I finally I used a charm from my stash - I really need to get using these items - I also used a paper clip - I have a jar of colorful paper clips I purchased on sale. I worked on this card last night - looking through my stash to see how I could embellish the Easel Card - I am liking this "using up those items in my stash" - after all - that is why I was either gifted with items or I purchased them. What do you need to use on a creation? Look and see - you may be surprised of what you have collected but forgot you had in your stash!

    Thanks for sharing your creativity with us once again this week. Hope you're having an awesome week. I got you some COOL goodies in the antique stores. Can't wait to get home and go through it all again - it will be like Christmas!
