PCC254 - Live Life with Zest!

It's been a while since I played along with the Paper Craft Crew.  But then that's why I left the Design Team.  I had so many things going on in my life.  Well, time to have fun and "live life with zest".

When I think of fun in the backyard, I usually think about having some fresh lemonade.  (Spiked or not depends on the occasion).  With this new catalogue's great stamps, creating something that really looks like a glass of lemonade was super easy.  I simply reached for the Lemon Zest set and the Coffee Cafe bundle.  On their own or combined, these are such fun to use.

I had found, among the piles of papers I've gone through lately, some DSP which really caught my eye.  Imagine how thrilled I was to be able to use it with this card.  First, however, I reached for my new Tim Holtz Oxide Inks and played with that DSP a bit.  Using the Fossilized Amber and the Vintage Photo, I managed to make the DSP even better.  How great is that!

I used Heavy Whisper White for my base and then a skinny layer of Basic Grey.  My glass has some shine because I simply had to cover it with some Crystal Effects.

And there you have it, my fun drink for my summer BBQ.  I hope you'll take time to check out the other cards at the Paper Craft Crew Challenge.


  1. This is an amazing card, Heidi. That! However you created it and the other elements on the card, the result is something unique.

  2. You did a fabulous job with your tall refreshing glass of lemonade. Gosh the glass looks so real as do the lemons. I've not ever heard of crystal effects. Also while here I noticed your side bar with the stamped rock.. LOVE it.. cause it's mixing two of my favorite things.. rocks and stamps.. yay.

  3. What a fabulous card, Heidi! I love the lemons, the ice cubes and the beautiful background!
