Life’s short…Live it with zest!

Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrator Karen Robinson | Life’s short… Live it with zest!

I’m playing along with the Paper Players Colour Challenge #348 this week and as soon as I saw the colours that had been chosen I knew exactly what set I wanted to use… the brand new Lemon Zest stamp set.

I have to admit that Lemon Lime Twist wasn’t an immediate favourite when the *new* 2017-19 In Colours were released, but it’s really grown on me and I find myself trying to sneak it in to nearly every project now, so I was thrilled to see this combination and have a lovely play 🙂

Little Paper Party, Lemon Zest, PP348, #5.jpg

The lemon and lime slices were randomly stamped in Daffodil Delight and Lemon Lime Twist on Whisper White cardstock to create a bright and cheerful background. I punched out a few with the 1-3/4″ Circle Punch, added a sentiment to two of them and popped them up with dimensionals on the front.

I layered this stamped layer onto Pool Party cardstock embossed with the Layered Leaves Embossing Folder, this folder coordinates perfectly with this stamp set and I just had to use them together 🙂

I adhered these two layers to a Thick Whisper White card base and added a little Basic Black Baker’s Twine for a simple embellishment.

Little Paper Party, Lemon Zest, PP348, #3

I added the same layers inside with just a little stamping on the bottom edge. I used a post it to mask of the stamped area and I really like the rough edge that was the result.

This was such a quick and easy and fun card to make, the only thing I think I would have done differently is to have used Lemon Lime Twist for the card base, I think it would have really made the colours pop! I think I’ll have to do a re-make and check it out. If you’d like to see a re-make, let me know and I’ll pop up a picture.

Little Paper Party, Top 10 Collage, Lemon Zest Bundle

I hope you enjoyed my project today and that you’ll have a look at this fun set, it’s got some great sentiments and is also available as a bundle (save 10%) with the coordinating punch.

I have lots of ideas for this one – I just need more hours in the day 🙂 Make sure you check out my SU Annual Catalogue 2017/18 Pinterest Board if you need some inspiration and perhaps a little enabling??? 😉
