Stamp Review Crew - Sweet Citrus
Welcome to the Stamp Review Crew's SWEET CITRUS edition! The "Crew" is a group of Stampin' Up! demonstrators from around the world who pick a stamp set or bundle to highlight on the first and third Mondays of each month, with a bonus hop if there is a fifth Monday. If you landed here from Jay's blog, Mitosu Crafts, welcome! There are only three of us today.
Sweet Citrus is an 11 piece photopolymer set with a coordinating 3D Embossing folder/hybrid die set. There are four sentiments, blossoms and, of course, the citrus. I love that this can be turned into any citrus from limes to oranges, tangerines to grapefruit!
I have two cards today. The first focuses on oranges. I used the embossing folder for a background and added a little color with a sponge dauber. The oranges were stamped, then embossed, then cut with the die. Some Clear Wink of Stella add a juicy shine to the fruit.
We used to have a huge naval orange tree that hung over our fence from the neighbor's yard. Those were THE BEST oranges I have ever had. Sure do miss them, since we can't grow them here in Tennessee.
Next up is the zesty lime card. I always think margaritas when I see limes, LOL. And what better way to celebrate a birthday than with a frosty margarita, amiright? 😁
After stamping, embossing, die cutting the lime, I pressed it onto the VersaMark pad and sprinkled it generously with salt....I mean, clear embossing powder, then hit it with the Heat Tool.
That's all I have to share for today, so click "Next" to see what Heidi over at RunningwScissors Stamper created, or "Previous" to visit Jay again. Thanks for stopping by!
