The Stamp Review Crew: Lemon Zest

Stamp Review Crew Blog Hop: Inspiring you one stamp set at a time

Welcome to another Stamp Crew Review Blog Hop!  We share our take on a selected stamp set every first and third Monday.  This week's hop focuses on the Annual Catalog set, Lemon Zest, which coordinates with the Lemon Builder Punch.  If you are following the hop in order, you have just arrived from the lovely and creative Linda Callahan's blog.

For Father's Day, I sent a treat package off to my dad.  I'd love to send some chocolate, but that wouldn't be wise for Florida.  So I created a coordinating lemon card to accompany the lemon Girl Scout cookies.

Stampin' Up! Lemon Zest
I used the rock-and-roll technique for the lemon images.  The sentiment comes from May 2016 Paper Pumpkin, Many Manly Occasions.

Stamps: Lemon Zest; Paper: Basic Black, Whisper White, Naturally Eclectic DSP; Ink: So Saffron, Lemon Lime Twist, Emerald Envy, Memento Tuxedo Black; Accessories: Tutti-frutti Sequins, May 2016 Many Manly Occasions Paper Pumpkin Kit, Lemon Builder Punch, 1-3/4" Circle Punch, Stitched Shapes Framelits, Layering Squares Framelits, Big Shot, Dimensionals.

I thought it would be fun to dress up some classic Lemonhead candies.

Sweet card for your dad! I would not have thought to use citrus on a Father's Day card, but it works great! Cute packaging for the Lemonheads too :)

Yeah, sending chocolate to Florida in the summer probably isn’t a good idea, LOL! I think the lemon idea is perfect, and I’m sure your father loved it!
