Ahhh, It’s So Refreshing to Sip a Cool Glass of Lemonade

For sure it’s totally refreshing to sip a cool glass of lemonade on a hot or even warm day. I think today’s card invites you right out onto the back patio to enjoy such a treat.

So Refreshing summer fun card

I’ve been wanting to sit down with this stamp set, So Refreshing, since it first found its way into my stampin’ studio. And I found out you really have to pay attention when stamping these images in preparation for die cutting. Silly me stamped the flowers here, the stems there and the lemonade that should be inside the pitcher, next to it. Same with the contents of the glasses.

Actually, what you need to do — which I did the second time around — is to stamp the outline images for the pitcher and the glasses and then “fill” them with the lemonade images. And here I thought I was so smart! 🙂

So Refreshing Lemonade Pitcher

Stamp pitcher using Smoky Slate Classic Ink. Stamp ‘lemonade’ using Lemon Lolly Classic Ink. And then finally stamp a few lemon slices using Crushed Curry Classic Ink. Then die cut the image on the right!

So Refreshing Glass of Lemonade
Stamp glass outline using Smoky Slate Classic Ink. Add the Lemon Lolly Classic Ink juice to the glass image and die cut. Of course you can stamp and die cut the glass or pitcher first and then stamp the contents. Your choice.
So Refreshing Stem of Flowers
Stamp stem first using Soft Sea Foam Classic Ink. Then stamp the flowers outline (Calypso Coral Classic Ink) trying your best to line them up with the little openings. Finally add the solid flowers using Petal Pink Classic Ink. The first time I did this I stamped the flowers (outline and filling) separate from the stem! Nope, it doesn’t work that way.
So Refreshing flowers/stem.
Secure your flower die with a piece of Washi Tape or post it note before running it through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss machine. You’ll thank me. Check out the difference between my two cards and their flowers. I learned!

TIPS & MEASUREMENTS for Prepping this Card

  • Petal Pink Card Base: 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, scored at 4-1/4
  • Designer Series Paper layer: 5-1/4″ x 4″
  • Calypso Coral layer: 4-1/4″ x 3-1/4″
  • Basic White layer: 4″ x 3″
  • Basic White scraps for stamping and die-cutting
  • You’ll also need: Paper Trimmer, stamps for greeting, Dimensionals, Cut & Emboss Machine


  • Run both the Designer Series Paper (DSP) and the Basic White card stock through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine using the embossing folder of your choice. I used the Twister Rope 3D Embossing Folder.
  • Attach, using the adhesive of your choice, the DSP layer, the Calypso Coral Layer and then the Basic White layer.
  • Attach your die cut images in any positions that please you. I added Dimensionals under the table mat, the pitcher, one glass, and the lemons. The rest I attached with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
  • I’m holding off on attaching a greeting until I know what the occasion is, like birthday, thank you, just a note……..
