The Print Shop collections are my favorite Greetery products to work with, and so well put together that it’s literally impossible to make a bad card! I really loved the recent release of Print Shop: Peachy Keen and wanted to find alternative ways to use the products, so I thought maybe I can switch out the pears for some sweet lemons from last summer’s release?
I started by using the Peachy Keen stencils for the leaves and the flowers. The leaves were blended using Bundled Sage and Mowed Lawn distress oxide inks, and the flowers were blended with Victorian Velvet and Wilted Violet distress oxide inks. I then used the Peachy Keen stamp set to stamp in the details.
Now we’re left with empty areas where the peaches would have been, so this is where I used the lemons from Lemon Blossom! I used the Lemon Blossom Stamp Set to create my three variations of lemon images and the Lemon Blossom Die to die cut each of them out. The lemons are smaller than the peaches, so in many areas, I overlapped a couple of my stamped images to fill in the spaces, and strategically covered any partial leaves with the lemon. You can’t even tell the space was meant for peaches!
I also stamped my sentiment from Lemon Blossom Stamp Set directly onto the card in black and then trimmed down my panel to a size 4″ by 5.25″ before mounting it onto a white A2 top fold base card. As a final embellishment, I added several drops of Nuvo Jewel Drops in Limoncello and Orange Marmalade. These dropped added a fun texture and also look just like droplets of the fruit juice!
How do you like the lemon replacement of the peaches from the original design? Shall we try some flowers next? So many possibilities!
