Colour of the week- Lemon Lolly

Have you ever gotten stuck looking at all the colours of ink and paper you have? Me too. Which is why I am pulling out my colour coach, and creating three cards each week with one of the colour cards. The colour of the week is Lemon Lolly.

There are times I have looked at the combinations and thought no way- those will not go together, but I have been pleasantly surprised.

Now, you can mix up these colours however you like- ink, cardstock, or even patterned paper. The beauty of Stampin’ Up! is that no matter which product you choose the colour in, it will match with everything else. (check out this colour of the week idea)

My budget saving tip is to always start with cardstock- a little can go a long way, and it can be used in so many combinations, like I did here, either with layering, or cutting it and puzzle piecing it together.

This first card is a Lemon Lolly base, with a piece of Basic White on top, stamped with all three colours using the Softly Said stamp set. Tinsel gems were used as well, because, well, pretty much every card always needs a little bit of bling!

I had no idea where I was heading when I started this card, but the thought of a frame came to me when I was looking at all the colours suggested in this combo, and it just worked.

Petunia pop and Lemon Lolly were not a combo that I would have come up with on my own. I wanted something a little different, so I took two 2″ strips of each colour, and cut them so I had 2″ and 3″ pieces. The Softly Said thank you sentiment was added in Memento Tuxedo Black, and the tinsel gems finished off the card.

Even though I have most of the ink pads, Memento is usually my go-to for sentiments.

To me, this card is a little more masculine. Pebbled Path was layered onto the Lemon Lolly base, and the Softly Said sentiment was stamped in Gray Granite and Lemon Lolly. The silver tinsel gems were added for a little bit of sparkle and shing.

You can use these colour combinations to recreate the cards seen, or you can use them to create your own masterpieces.

I hope you’ll use this as an inspiration jumping off point. Happy crafting!
