May Stamp of the Month: Classic Summer Bash

Welcome to the May stamp of the month blog hop featuring Classic Summer Bash!  I don't know about you, but I am soooo ready for summer!  You're going to see so many great ideas for this stamp set that will have you earning to kick off summer too.  (If you're already hopping then you've probably arrived from Jen's blog.  From here, you'll visit Katy's blog next.)
This delicious card uses the new Beautiful Friendship collection and a sketch from Make It From Your Heart, Vol. 4.  The stamped panel is all one piece and actually started out much larger.  I stamped the jar with Sapphire ink, then stamped the lemon slice with Canary on the "edge" of the jar, and finally the straw in Smoothie "leaning" against the edge of the jar mouth.  Next, I used my paper trimmer to PARTIALLY cut this panel to size.  I made sure not to slice off the top of the lemon nor the straw from the piece of card stock.  I then fussy cut around the straw and the lemon.

To create the "lemonade," I first cut out a mask of the center of the jar.  I used my paper trimmer to cut where I wanted the top of the lemonade to be.  I placed my mask over the stamped jar and then sponged Canary ink in the opening.  The last step was to stamp a few ice cubes (also in Canary) floating on top.  A Beautiful Friendship bow completed the card.
