This bright and fun card was made using the soon-to-be-released Clear Dollar Stamps Set, "Fruity Fun". I had this wonderful Ki Memories "Juicy Summer" designer paper that had this great orange, lemon, lime motif going on and I just had to ink up the citrus slices! The lime, lemon and orange natural colors became intensified and the basis for my color scheme on this card. I wanted to reflect "Cheery", "Fun", "Bright" and "Summer" in this card and with the help of the fab designer paper and my Cuttlebug, I think it works. It's hard to see in the photo but the citrus designer paper has a super shimmer to it, with a touch of sparkle. I know that you'll love playing with "Fruity Fun", as it has so many possibilities for design and use. To see a complete illustration of what's included in the "Juicy Fun" stamp set, click HERE. To see some fabulous other sneak peek samples of "Fruity Fun" don't miss my design teammates' work: Candy Fosta, Katie Renz, Laurie Wilson and Tori Wild. "Juicy Fun" releases May 1st!
