Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrator Juanita Zavala | Bye-Bye Lemon Zest
Today I’m saying goodbye to another retiring favorite from the 2018-19 Annual Catalogue – Lemon Zest. I’ve really enjoyed creating fun, quirky cards with this set.
I’ve tried to create a #simplestamping project for May’s challenge, which is to use card stock, ink & a retiring stamp set and think that today’s project has finally met the brief.
I started off stamping the slice image in Pumpkin Pie ink and the leaves in Lemon Lime Twist ink (retiring) onto Whisper White card stock and punched them out with the 1-3/4″ Circle Punch (retiring) and Lemon Builder Punch (retiring) respectively.I cut the slice in half and added one half & the leaves to my card front with Tombow and popped the other half up with dimensionals for a little interest and texture.
NOTE: Several of the current circle punches (3/4″, 1-1/4″ & 1-3/4″) are on the retirement list, these in between sizes are great for layering and if you’re not a fan of die cutting are nearly a must-have tool.
If you want to add any of these to your stash, they’re only available while stocks last until June 3, 2019, so pick them up while you can if you want to round out your punch collection.
I layered my Whisper White layer onto a Lemon Lime Twist one and then added these to a Pumpkin Pie card base – adding layers is a very easy way to dress up your cards and make them look a little more special.
A few rhinestones in one corner added a little sparkle and finished off my easy card. These are a great embellishment for beginners as they’re self-adhesive, come in three different sizes, are inexpensive and can be colored with alcohol markers to co-ordinate with any color scheme. I added Wink of Stella for a little sparkle.
I added the same sized layers as the front inside my card and stamped the slice image on the Whisper White layer in one corner for a little decoration. To achieve the different colors I stamped my image twice, without re-inking, this gives a lighter shade of the original color.
