WCC26 – Lemonade anyone?

WCC26 – Jean’s Lemonade Pie Color Challenge

Welcome to a new Challange.  This time around we are focusing on three colors and if you want you can also use the picture for inspiration…or just let it make you hungry!  LOL

The official start of summer is just a few short days away.  Well alright…more like a week.  But hey…Mother Nature has been getting in some practice in my neck of the woods with an early start on turning grass to hay and soaring temperatures.   So I thought…what better time for lemonade pie and colors that will also work for Father’s Day…also coming up in a hurry.

Check it out.  Isn’t that pie scrumptious?   I like the china plate and the table runner too!   If you want to make the pie…here’s the recipe link  If you want to play along…check out the information at the bottom of the post.

WCC26 - Watercooler Challenge -Lemonade Pie Color Challenge - June 14 2015Here’s my version…non edible but it has soft and fluttering butterfly embossing, a cool trick with the Note Tag punch from Stampin’ Up and a few other yummy bits and pieces.   Best of all…whether it’s given for Father’s Day or another occasion…it tells the recipient how much they are loved.  Click the picture to see all the detail close up.

WCC26 - Jean's  Lemondade Pie Color Challenge - recipe included!


Stamps: Lovely Amazing You (still available for a short time), Papillon Potpourri

Ink:  Marine Mist, Daffodil Delight Classic Inks

Paper: Crumb Cake, Blackberry Bliss, Marina Mist, Daffodil Delight, Very Vanilla

Punches: Note Tag, Itty Bitty Accents Pack (heart), Bitty Butterfly, Banner

Other:  Big Shot, Fluttering Embossing Folder (new),  1/4″ Daffodil Delight Cotton Ribbon, Rhinestone Basic Jewels, Dimensionals, SNAIL

I wish this design had shown off the very cool Fluttering folder a bit better.  Perhaps I need to sponge some color onto the layer to show off the wings.  This new and very cool folder is a new 6″ x 6″ size and trust me when I say…you are going to love it and want it.  The new catalog is all about the butterflies this year.  Well…cake and cupcakes makes it in too…and of course trees, flowers…and more.  But really…look at the butterflies…that’s a big trend…and I’m loving it!!

The newish cotton ribbon is pretty cool too.  Soft, silky and very easy to tie.  Yes it was in last years catalog but somehow I never got around to trying or discovering it.  Yep…I do foolish things sometimes.  If you don’t want to follow in that path…try it!  ’nuff said.

Tool tips: Note Tag punch does more than tags.  Are you wondering what die was used to create the window layer?  No die…it’s the Note Tag punch!  Brenda Quintana has a fun video showing how to create this window and others.   I used a square of 3-1/4″ for mine.


Join the rest of the design team over at the Challenge blog website here to see the rest of the teams designs and to add your own with the linky doodad.  When you add your own design and there are more than three entries, one of you will be a challenge winner and have the option to place the winner’s badge on your own site.  Of course…you’ll also win bragging rights!

That’s it for this challenge.   Sadly we didn’t have a winner for the linky added projects last time.  We need three or more submissions to award that prize.  I hope this time you’ll join in the fun and grab a friend or two as well and get creating!  Check the challenge site for rules on competing for this and future challenges.

Hugs and Blessings to all my friends and readers.

  2. Thanks for including the link for the pie, I plan on making it. I traded out one of the colors for my card but the colors you used make me happy.

  3. Loved your colour pick for the challenge Jean. I also loved your card and all the detail you put into it. The tip about using the note tag punch for more than tags and link to Brenda’s video was is brilliant too!
