Add a bit of Lemon Zest!

It's feeling like summer in Ohio this week which makes me look forward to long bike rides, lazy afternoons by the pool, pretty flowers in pots on my porch and patio, picking up fresh fruit and vegetables at the local farm market, picnics with family, and enjoying cold glasses of lemonade. Making fresh, fun cards is easy peasy lemon squeezy with the Stampin' Up!'s Lemon Zest Stamp Set and coordinating Lemon Builder Punch. Create and send Lemon Zest cards with happy greetings for the birthday guy or gal or someone you love.

Create Lemon Zest cards with messages of encouragement and inspiration for those needing a bright and cheery pick me up! I love the versatility of the sentiments in this stamp set!

And...Lemon Zest isn't just for making lemons and lemonade! How about using the lemon stamps to make limes? How about lemon, lime, orange, and grapefruit slices? Change up your colors to make all kinds of citrus fruits for even greater variety of cards.

Tree Huggers Unite!

I thought you were due for a little Throwback Thursday Fun, so here it is!

It's so hard to say goodbye to the very popular and long-loved Lovely As A Tree stamp set. The stamp set debut in 2001 and has been a favorite of mine along with tens of thousands of other stampers worldwide. It's one of the very first stamp sets I purchased and have loved it over and over as you can see from my stained wood blocks. I found this video I made of 2 cards featuring Lovely As A Tree and demonstrated two techniques using Aqua Painters (a favorite tool of mine because they make me feel like a real watercolor artist but are so easy to use). Watch and then pull out your stamps, ink, and paper and create some beautiful cards of your own.

Don' have this stamp set but been admiring it? Order it now before it's gone. It is available in Clear Mount and Wood Mount (which at the time I bought mine was our only choice). Stamp sets on the Last Chance Products List have guaranteed availability through May 24th. After that, it's while supplies last only. 

 

Click here to see the products used in the making of the video. A few of the colors (Always Artichoke & Soft Sky) have been retired. You can easily replace them with your favorite current Stampin' Up! colors. Mossy Meadow and Balmy Blue are the two replacement colors I would choose. How about you? What current colors will you use?

Wishing you all a lovely day!

Happy Stamping!

PS...I'd love it if you would share my Stampin' Peace Blog and YouTube Channel with your friends! Thanks in advance for helping me share what I love to do!

Sentimental Rose Collage

I decided after running my first ever Quarter Marathon at age 54 that I would make a little something for myself as a reward and a reminder that I am Strong & Beautiful & Resilient. I used the Sentimental Rose stamp set and supplies from my April Paper Pumpkin Kit. I love this little gift to myself and hope you like it too! The Strong & Beautiful stamp set has been one of my favorites from the 2019 Occasions Catalog. So many great sentiments for strong women and girls!
