Lemon-Lime Daisy Twist

It finally snowed (on February 10th!) but it’s blooming in my craft room!

I wanted to try the #tgifc146 sketch challenge, and I just turned it on it’s side and replaced the heart with a daisy using a few of my favorite punches.Ā tgif2bchallenge2bbuttons2b2018-0111

Use your bone folder and delicately curl the petals of your daisy (punch it twice) to give it a little dimension: Watermarked2(2018-02-10-1405)

It’s a VERY simple card to create and I hope you’ll have time to create your own and send it to someone who has served you recently!

My Stampiversary is over, but the last thank you cards need to go into the mail. It seemed only natural to make some “creative juice” cards to encourage the customers who ordered from my Flash Sale to live with ZEST!

Using the words from a stamp set as your background can make a dramatic impact: For this card, I stamped once with my stamp loaded with Lemon-Lime twist ink, then stamped again without re-inking it and then ONE MORE TIME for the lightest impression.

Thanks to the Global Design Project for coordinating the color challenge to support my theme (not really…it was just good luck):

I added a little Daffodil Delight to the palette so I could include the lemon, and now I’m off to write my appreciation to my customers!

Live with Zest!

I’m a sucker when it comes to a stamp set and coordinating punch…but then Stampin’ Up! made the Lemon Zest stamp set with citrus fruit and this was a NO BRAINER for my Creative Juice!

Made this card LIVE on my Facebook Page yesterday morning: Did you know I have Live Lunchtime Crafting each Monday at 12:30 MST? Tune in as you eat your midday meal to get some extra Vitamin (C)reativity:

The fruit on this card is stamped on glossy paper (welcome back!) and uses Lemon Lime Twist (one of the 2017-2019 In-Colors), along with Daffodil Delight and Pumpkin Pie:Watermarked(2017-06-19-1425)-2

The Lemon Zest stamp set comes in wood mount or clear mount and when you bundle it with the Lemon Builder punch, you save 10%:145360g

Finally, this little cutie (see what I did there?) was made even sweeter by adding a few Lemon Lime Twist tiles cut from the Stitched Shaped Framelits behind the orange slices, which are perfectly punched out using the 1-3/4″ circle punch! Of course, on the inside of this card is the “Live with Zest” sentiment:Watermarked(2017-06-19-1425)

Hope you’ve enjoyed this slice of citrus fruit crafting and thanks for shopping for your own “creative juice” in my Stampin’ Store!

Guy Greetings~ With A Twist!

… aĀ Lemon-Lime Twist, that is! Admittedly, I wasn’t sure if I liked the new Lemon-Lime In-Color (available starting June 1, 2017)… but pair it with black and silver, and I’m a new fan, and so’s your grandpa.

Just in time for Father’s Day, I’ve got the instructions for you HERE.

Isn’t that hexagon embossing folder on silver such an incredibly industrial look for the manly-menĀ in your life? I’ve also used it as chicken wire and honeycomb: Definitely a MUST. HAVE. for your BigShot collection.
