Citrus & Such – Take 2

I really was NOT kidding when I said I love this set from Stampin’ Up! 

Citrus & Such – an oldie but such a GOODIE!!! (This link goes to Pinterest and there is a photo of the set)

~ So I made another card – Here it is ~


I used the aforementioned set with Only Orange, Daffodil Delight inkpads and I colored on the slice with Pretty in Pink and Apricot Appeal markers. I masked all the images using Post-It notes, and then covered all the images up and used the Diagonal Stripe stencil from Simon Says Stamp in Certainly Celery to create a background! I also used a splatter stamp with the Apricot Appeal marker and added some more color to the background! I used a sentiment from the Chit Chat Stamp set from Paper Smooches stamped in Tangelo Twist!

This is a simple one-layer, “mailable” card!! I need so many of this kind!

I masked all the images when stamping them and then again so I could stencil the background!
