Color of the Week – Lemon Lime Twist

Aug 15, 2018 | Color of the Week, Colors

Lemon Lime Twist is this week’s color of the week.  It is one of the 2017-2019 In Colors, so this is the last year it will be in the catalog.  I know I will miss this color when this catalog year ends because it is such a fun pop of color. After you read up about Lemon Lime Twist head over to this section of the blog to see all the other colors I’ve featured so far (with more coming every week this catalog year).  

Make sure to follow along here on the blog or on my Instagram and Facebook pages.  I will be using the hashtag #makewithcolor throughout the year when I share color projects and combinations and ask that you join in too!  All you have to do is tag me (@mackenziemakes) and use the #makewithcolor hashtag so I can see what you are sharing. I’m so excited to bring you color inspiration all year long!

Lemon Lime Twist is a fun bright green color, not as yellow as Pineapple Punch and a little lighter than Granny Apple Green.

CARD INSPIRATION

Lemon Lime Twist makes for a bright and fun birthday card.  Here I used the Picture Perfect Birthday stamp set.

For the card base, cut an 11″ x 4-1/4″ piece of Lemon Lime Twist cardstock, then score and fold at 5-1/2″ on the long side.  Cut another piece of Lemon Lime Twist cardstock to 5″ x 3-3/4″ to stamp on.  Use the same color ink pad and stamp some of the confetti images multiple times towards the top left corner and the center-right areas.  Add this layer to the card base with Dimensionals.

On a piece of Whisper White cardstock, stamp the sentiment then cut out with the largest square from the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies so the words are towards the top of the square.  Stamp the bow image three times on some Whisper White cardstock with Berry Burst ink.  Ink up the inside bow image with Berry Burst ink and stamp off on scratch paper before stamping it lined up with the main bow image.  Cut out the three bows with Paper Snips.  Adhere one bow to the sentiment square and the other two to the card.  If needed, lay the sentiment square on the card to help with placement of the bows.  After the bows are adhered to the card add the square with Dimensionals.
