Hope you have a good Easter weekend planned – I’m headed over to our friends’ place in DE on Sunday. We’ll go to church and then I’ll spend the day with them before returning “home” in the afternoon. It’s been a minute since I’ve seen them, so I’m looking forward to it! 🙂
My card today is a bit of a tribute to two things leaving us at the end of May – the Wonderful Romance stamp set and…LEMON LIME TWIST!! How many of you LOVE LLT like I do!?! I was happy we got Granny Apple Green, which I also love, but…I’ll miss the bright pops of Lemon Lime Twist. This is a monochromatic card featuring this fave LOUD and CLEAR. Take a look-see:
Hang with me, folks – there’s a method to my madness! This color scheme is thanks to this week’s Global Design Project challenge.
I assume you know what my color of choice is…?
And the layout is from this FabFriday challenge.
I started with some Gingham Gala DSP (this is going away TOO!! – so getcha some now if you want a stash of it!) in Lemon Lime Twist and matted it on Lemon Lime Twist for the card front.
To create the frame, I used two Rectangle Stitched Framelits – the large one and one that is TWO sizes down from it – and ran them thru the Big Shot on a piece of Lemon Lime Twist card stock.
On a piece of Whisper White, I stamped the large floral image from Wonderful Romance in Lemon Lime Twist ink. Then I used my Clear Wink of Stella as a paintbrush to color the leaves with…say it with me…Lemon Lime Twist. This is a great way to add color and shine all at once – and you can add shading simply by adding more or less ink!
I cheated the monochromatic theme ever so slightly – and lightly touched the middle of the larger flowers and the tiny flowers in Powder Pink with the Clear Wink of Stella brush.
I adhered the art behind the LLT frame with Liquid Glue and popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
The sentiment, from Wonderful Romance, is stamped in LLT on Whisper White, cut with a Stitched Shapes Framelits circle die, and matted on a LLT Starburst Punch mat. Then I adhered it with Liquid Glue.
A few Pearl Basic Jewels and simple bow tied with a double length of Whisper White Solid Baker’s Twine finished off the card front.
On the inside, I stamped the leaf image from Wonderful Romance twice in LLT and colored them with my Clear Wink of Stella. Then I added a few Pearl Basic Jewels.
I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Lemon Lime Twist mat and into my Thick Whisper White card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals, and the card was done!
My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Wonderful Romance leaves on the front…
…and I put a little more Gingham Gala DSP on the envelope flap.
Et Voila! Not gonna fib ya – I kind of love this card! The Wonderful Romance floral looks clean and bright in – mostly! – Lemon Lime Twist, don’t you think? And Gingham Gala will forever be a favorite of mine! There’s a lot on this card that’s leaving us soon – so…I hope you like AND that you’re snapping these up!

Carryover Clear-Mount and Wood-Mount Stamps
There are stamp sets that are currently offered in clear-mount or wood-mount (in the 2018–2019 Annual Catalog), that ARE carrying over – but are being transitioned to Cling Mount.
These transition sets that will be in the 2019–2020 annual catalog – will continue to be offered in clear-mount and/or wood-mount until existing inventory has been depleted or until June 4, 2019 (whichever comes first). If the inventory is depleted, you will be notified of the automatic switch to cling when placing an order for that stamp set. This means that you may end up purchasing select cling stamp sets (in carryover artwork) before they can be ordered from the catalog! All carryover rubber stamp sets will be available in cling medium only (with the exception of background stamps in North America) beginning June 4, 2019.
