Stampin’ Up Lemon Zest

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers.  How is your week going?

For today’s card I used another one of my favorites, Stampin’ Up Lemon Zest stamp set.  I did the masking technique for my card today.  Take a look.

I started with a Lemon Lime Twist card front and adhered a strip of the Gingham Gala 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper on the bottom portion.  I wrapped a piece of Lemon Lime Twist 1/4″ Organdy Ribbon (free Sale-A-Bration item with $50 purchase) around the bottom and tied a knot.  I adhered the card front to a Basic Black mat using Snail.

On a piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the cut fruit pieces from the Stampin’ Up Lemon Zest stamp set in Grapefruit Grove, Lemon Lime Twist, Mango Melody and Pineapple Punch.   I cut all the images out using the Layering Circles Framelits Dies that matched up with the image size.  I adhered the 4 slices to a Whisper White cardstock using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I stamped the whole lemon image on a piece of Whisper White cardstock in Pineapple Punch Ink and the leaf image in Lemon Lime Twist, stamping them both off once. I punched the lemon and leaves out using the Lemon Builder Punch.  I stamped the sentiment from the Lemon Zest stamp set in the center of the lemon in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.

I adhered the leaves to the back of the lemon using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Using Stampin’ Dimensionals I adhered the lemon to the center of the sliced images.  I adhered the artwork to the top portion of the Lemon Lime Twist card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue then adhered the card front to a Grapefruit Grove card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The inside of the card is where I used the masking technique.  I stamped the 1st fruit slice from the Lemon Zest stamp set in Pineapple Punch Ink in the top left corner.  I covered the image with a cut out Post-It note and stamped the Grapefruit Grove and Lemon Lime Twist images.  I then covered the Lemon Lime Twist image and stamped the Mango Melody image.  I stamped the sentiments from the same stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of the Whisper White panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Basic Black mat using Snail then to the Grapefruit Grove card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the front of the envelope with the Lemon Zest stamp set using the masking technique.  I adhered a piece of Gingham Gala 6 X 6 DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for checking out my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try.  The masking technique is a very easy and fun technique.  Happy stamping.
