I finished another project to share for the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop! This time I set out to create an iced tea card. I was inspired by Betsy Veldman's pink lemonade card that she made using the Just Mason Around set last year from The Greetery

I decided to create a gingham tablecloth using the Flappable stencil. For my first card I used cracked pistachio and for the second one I used worn lipstick. These two colours happen to have been my very first distress oxide inks that I ever got years ago! 

I played around with some different colour combinations for my lemons and settled with squeezed lemonade + fossilized amber and fossilized amber + spiced marmalade. To create my mason jar glass, I used the detail stamps on watercolour paper and then used my Tombow markers. On the first card I used only the final detail mason jar stamp and then added in some highlights with a white gel pen. On the second card I used both of the detail stamps for a bit of a different look. A big thank you to my Auntie Karen for suggesting some tips for this card!

  1. These are both so fabulous, I love them!

  2. Allie - these turned out SO great! I'm so impressed with how you painted the iced tea :o)

  3. Both cards are super pretty! I think I like the Cracked Pistachio version most, as the pink flowers pop against it more than they do on the Worn Lipstick one. They're both beautiful though.

  4. Awesome card and great painting.

  5. Nice card design, love Greetery products!
