I hope you all had a fantastic weekend! I know we did! We spent the afternoon yesterday at the Mackinnon Bros. Music Festival in Bath. They put on a great event!
Today I wanted to share with you a card that we made at the last team meeting. Each month I have been challenging one of my downline to come up with the make & take and produce 3-4 more samples using the stampset. This month, Michelle Lavoie volunteered to use the Lemon Zest stampset, and this was the make & take she came up with:
Cute, right? I'll be back later this week to show you the rest of the samples she came up with!

To make this card:
1. Cut the Old Olive Cardstock to 5 1/2 x 8 1/2", and score at 4 1/4" (finished card base will be 4 1/4 x 5 1/2"). Cut the Sahara Sand cardstock to 4 x 5 1/4".
2. Stamp the Sahara Sand piece with the hardwood stamp using Sahara Sand ink. Hint: With large background stamps, I personally find it easier to place the stamp face up on the table, ink it, then place the cardstock down and rub the back of the cardstock.
3. Stamp the Timeless Textures stamps on the Sahara Sand piece in Basic Black (use the grid and the coffee stains). Adhere a strip of ribbon to the Sahara Sand piece. Adhere the Sahara Sand piece to the card base.
4. Stamp the leaves in Old Olive on the Whisper White and punch out with the Lemon Builder Punch. Stamp the fruit slices in Lemon Lime Twist and Tangerine Tango and punch out with the circle punch. Stamp Happy Birthday in Basic Black. Adhere to the card base. Add rhinestones.
Thanks for joining me today! Join me again tomorrow for more great samples from Michelle using this stampset.
