Welcome to week eight of our Art With Heart 2023-24 Colour Creations blog hop!
Lemon Lolly is a soft and pale yellow that’s in the Subtles family, sitting somewhere in between Daffodil Delight and Very Vanilla.
I just had to use the Sweet Citrus bundle for my Lemon Lolly card this week. The Sweet Citrus bundle is a must have if you love dimension on cards because it contains a hybrid embossing folder (embossing folder and matching die) that can be used to emboss, die cut or do both at the same time!
The gorgeous striped Lemon Lolly DSP on the front of the card is from the Bright & Beautiful 6″ x 6″ (15.2 x 15.2 cm) Designer Series Paper, one of the DSPs on sale for the month of June.
All the layers are die cut using the Deckled Rectangle Dies, including the sentiment. There wasn’t a long narrow die that fit the sentiment, however using a larger die and die cutting it twice, the die can be made to fit the sentiment.
The lemons are stamped in Lemon Lolly, lemon rinds in Daffodil Delight, leaves in Parakeet Party and lemon blossoms in Lemon Lolly.
I wasn’t sure which ribbon to use as an embellishment. This is the new 3/8″ (1 cm) Lemon Lolly ribbon from the Sheer Ribbon Combo Pack ribbon, cut in half lengthways.
Or this is a bow of the new Lemon Lime Twist ribbon from the Ribbon Duo Combo Pack. Which do you prefer?
These Pastel Adhesive-Backed Sequins add just the right touch of bling. This week I’ve used the gold sequins, however there is also a soft blue and a light pink in the pack.
Now it’s time to hop on over to our next participant, the lovely Kate Morgan – I can’t wait to see what Kate has made this week!
