The Greetery June Release: Sending Some Summer Sunshine

Welcome back to another day of The Greetery June Release product reveals and today I’m sharing inspiration with two fabulous summer themed sets, Just Mason Around and Lemon Blossom. I am crazy addicted to stamping these two sets!

I tried out various combinations of inks for my layered stamp images and the ones shown here are the favorites! I used the following colors:

Mason Jar: Dew DropsAqualiciousTeal Cave
Lemon: Squeezed Lemonade, Antique Linen
Lime: Limeade, Lime
Grapefruit: Pink Pearl, Coral Bliss, Antique Linen
Flowers: Tattered Rose, Spun Sugar, Coral Bliss
Leaves: Frayed LeafForest Glades, Evergreen

Not all my stamped images made it onto my card today, but you’ll definitely see them in future projects! I grabbed all my lemons and a mason jar to create an arrangement for my card. I imagined it all sitting on gingham “table cloth” like what I’d visualize on a summer outdoor gathering so I picked out a light gray gingham pattern paper from my scraps. I’m almost positive this pattern paper came from Joann’s open stock paper if you’re wondering.

I totally love the pop of turqouise from the mason jar! To compliment it all, I ink blended a turquoise to yellow background with Peacock Feathers, Tumbled Glass, and Antique Linen distress oxide inks.

I die cut a little banner using the Sentiment Suite Basics Die, once out of pink card stock and again out of the same gingham pattern paper. I heat embossed a sentiment from Lemon Blossom onto the pink piece in white and added these to the top left of the card. And finally I used some Limoncello Nuvo Jewel Drops to add a juicy look to these lemons!
