Live it with zest…

It’s so easy when a new catalogue comes along to forget old favourites, so today I’m sharing a project made using the Lemon Zest Bundle and Work of Art stamp set which are both found in the 2017-18 Annual Catalogue.

The design for this card was CASE’d from this awesome card I found on Pinterest. I loved the bright blue background and bold contrasting black stripes and knew the bright yellow lemons from Lemon Zest would look great against this back drop.

Little Paper Party, Lemon Zest Bundle, Work of Art, #1

I used Tempting Turquoise to create a watercolour wash on Shimmer White cardstock.  I really wanted to add some layers to this and took my time adding extra colour here and there and letting it dry a little in between to get the look I wanted.

I stamped the stripes in Basic Black using an image from Work of Art. I used post-it notes to create the shorter stripes and a fun pattern. I really like the contrast between the vivid blue and black and can see myself using this combo again and again.

After the background was completely dry, I heat embossed a sentiment from Lemon Zest with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder in the bottom right corner.

I stamped the lemons from Lemon Zest in Daffodil Delight and Crushed Curry onto Shimmer White cardstock and went over the stamped images with my Aqua Painter to give them a soft water coloured look.

I did the same for the leaves in Old Olive and punched out the whole lemon and the leaves with the coordinating Lemon Builder Punch and the slice with the 1-3/4″ Circle Punch.

A few clear shapes from the Glitter & Clear Epoxy Shapes added the finishing touch to my card front. I love that they look they look like water drops and tie into my background beautifully 🙂

I added the same cardstock layers as the front to the inside of my card, with a bright little accent in one corner that adds some interest and a pop of colour

I hope you liked my project today and that you’ll check out this fun bundle if you haven’t before. If you’d like some more ideas of what to make with this set hop over to my SU Annual Catalogue 2017-18 Pinterest Board for some inspiration.
