Some of us are using happy celebrations and some of us are using cool treats which is great news since both are carrying over into the new catalog!
I chose happy celebrations because...well, I just like it! It was a hard decision because both sets are super cute!
My cards are pretty simple but pretty bold! This set just lends itself to being bright and cheery so I wanted to pair it with lemon lime twist which is so vibrant! It looks fantastic in a simple color combo with black and white! I've heard a few people say they aren't a fan of it but I hope to change your mind if you're in that camp.
I used some of the eastern palace DSP and also some of the retiring pop of pink DSP. If you haven't added this one to your stash, I highly recommend getting it before it's gone! I love the black and white designs of that paper and will miss it! (Still working on finding a place to take photos that isn't dark in this darn house!)
For this one, I used the same concept but I embossed the letters with white powder. Doesn't the lemon lime twist make an awesome watercolor wash background? I used some of the background circle images and some of them are stamped full strength and some stamped off once. I love all the color variations on this card out of just one color!
The black sequins were too much competition with my letters so I added the clear ones from our metallic sequin assortment to this one. It's a fun look with the bold circles and the sequins being more subtle.
And finally on this card, I pulled out the coordinating embossing folders which are so much fun! I stamped the triangles both full strength, stamped off once and then once again. For the sequins here, I went with white which helped make the debossed greeting really pop. It's amazing the difference a little bitty embellishment like that can make! The cards looked naked without them, ha!
I hope I've changed your mind about lemon lime twist if you were on the fence and I hope you enjoyed my projects. It's time to head on over to the Netherlands and visit Miriam who has something amazing to show you!
I wasn't able to add the Eastern palace specialty paper to my supply list so please note that it should be added.
Happy stamping! Product List
