Pucker Up!

The first time I laid eyes on the new Copic Spica glitter pens, I knew I HAD to have the yellow one to use with my Rubber Soul lemonade stamps! It's too bad it doesn't show up in the photo, because these pens do AMAZING things! :) I love glitter and these pens pack a punch!

I love the saying "When Life Gives You Lemons...."! -- And isn't this little lemonade stand the cutest ever? I was flipping through my Garden Variety paper pack and thought this striped paper would be just perfect. I love how Rubber Soul's paper packs coordinate with their colored note cards and envelopes. It just makes it too easy! (and I am NOT complaining!) So, I picked out
Copics that coordinated with the paper and colored in my scene. The pitcher is colored in with the Spica pen and is so sparkly IRL. I masked the lemonade stand and added a little celery shadow.

I used my
SU Word Window punch (punched twice, side-by-side) to create an opening that would fit my sentiment. It just needed a little something... so I stamped the large lemonade pitcher onto a "shrinky-dink" and added it next to the sentiment. I still get such a kick out of heating this stuff up and watching it do it's magic. So fun!

I just couldn't put these stamps down, so I decided to make a card for Julee
Tilman's Mojo Monday sketch challenge. I didn't have any green brads, so I just 'painted' them with my Copic marker.

So... my house is a wreck and I've got a lot of work to do today on my day off. Wish I had a real glass of fresh squeezed
lemonade. Hmm......


  1. What fun cards!! Love that lemonade stand - so cute and your coloring is awesome!! :)

  2. Both cards are SO cute! I'll have to check out those glitter pens! :)

  3. Very cute! I have one of the glitter pens and love it too.

    Can you tell me more about what the Blog Challenge Group is?


  4. OH I LOVE these lemonade cards! They are awesome. . .the colors, the papers, the stamps! Makes me miss summer already!

  5. You are seriously enabling me on these lemonade stamps Julie! I'm THIS CLOSE to caving! And now you add new Copics to the mix? What are you doing to me?!

  6. Once you buy the SPica pens from Copic, there is no turning back-they have real crushed glass in them instead of glitter.

  7. This is a great card. I need some lemonade now! :)
