Lemon Lime Twist and Petal Palette

Hello folks.   I don’t know about you, but I love bright colours and I am always inspired by the way that our colours blend together seamlessly.  So Lemon Lime Twist has really brightened my colour palette.

 

HAPPY LEMON LIME TWIST & PETAL PALETTE

When the new 2017/19 colours were launched I was really excited by the way that such bright colours melded together and could create such beautiful projects.

We’ve all made those creations that have one bright colour and then the rest is muted tones, but this colour palette of

has really fired my imagination.   I love the Lemon Lime Twist.  Its everywhere on the high street and is a beautiful bright colour which just adds joy to any project.

As you may already know I love the Petal Palette Stamp set and matching dies.  But there is also a gorgeous paper stack that goes with this lovely set.    Petal Passion is all black and white and is perfect for colouring with our blends or watercolour pencils.

Making this gorgeous card

Im using our lovely extra thick whisper white card to create my base and then layering Lemon Lime Twist on the top.  Now for the bit I really love.  Colouring.   Take a piece of the petal passion paper and cut a matt layer.  I’ve chosen to colour mine in with the watercolour pencils.

Use the gorgeous stitched framelits to cut a large lemon lime twist circle.  Whilst at the big shot, also cut the leaves from the Petals and More Thinlets in lemon lime twist.

Next cut a berry burst circle (again with the stitched framelits) and then pass it through the big shot using the Petal Pair Textured Impressions Embossing folder.  (The flowery one)

A little bit of heat embossing

Next gently versamark and use clear embossing powder on this and heat emboss.  Do the same to the lemon lime leaves.

Before assembling I have cut 2 pieces of the lemon lime twist mini striped ribbon to go down and across the card.

Lastly I have stamped and heat embossed in black the bird from the Petal Palette stamp set and the Happy from Happy Wishes Stamp set in the Sale-a-Bration brochure.  Using the dies cut the bird and colour.   Then fussy cut the Happy.

I love using this set and the colours just go together so well.

I would love to hear what you think, or what colours you would like to use.
