Be Inspired- Favorite Color

Favorite Color, Stampin' Up!


I love a good challenge and today’s Be Inspired blog hop definitely was a CHALLANGE for me.  Our Be Inspired Team put together today’s theme, our favorite color.  At first I was completely stumped.  I love so many colors it was hard to settle on just one.

I gave this a lot of thought and decided to thumb through my blog and see what color stood out most over the last few weeks.  Lemon Lime Twist was hands down a winner.

Every time I looked at a card made with the Lemon Lime Twist my heart skipped a beat.  So today, that is the color I will choose.


Hello Lemon-Lime Twist

Favorite Color, Pieces & Patterns, Stampin' Up!


I decided to go full on Lemon Lime Twist using the cardstock, designer series paper and ink.  Oh my! It was a little slice of heaven having all of these products together.

The products I used is a new release available June 1st from the Pick a Pattern Suite.  This suite includes the stamp set Pieces & Patterns, Designer Series Paper, Washi Tape, and Electic Shaped Paper Clips.


Tips & Tricks

  • I used a new embossing folder called Oh My Stars.  I love how playful this embossing folder is and it will coordinate with so many great stamp sets.
  • The large piece of pattern paper is from the Eastern Palace Suite called Eastern Palace Specialty Designer Series Paper.  When you purchase this bundle now, you will receive this gorgeous designer series paper.  Click HERE to see the bundles available until May 31st and get a free gift with purchase.
  • I added another layer of designer series paper (black & white pattern) from the Pick a Pattern Designer Series Paper.  I love how this paper added a stark contrast to the card.

  • When I stamped the greeting I was so excited when the Stitched Shapes Framelits fit perfectly around the greeting.  I added another scallop die cut underneath the stitched circle using the Layering Circles Dies.
  • To create a little pop of color, I added a small strip of Bermuda Bay cardstock punched using the Ticker Tear Border. I love the little bitty scallop it creates.
  • Lastly, I added a few of my favorite embellishments like the Delicate White Doily and a small piece of Black 3/8″ Shimmer Ribbon.

Tutorials, Stampin' Up!


Make today GREAT and stamp something pretty.



  1. I’m so glad we have [at least] two years with Lemon Lime Twist. Love your card – every element is carefully selected – the tiny strip of Bermuda Bay is perfection.

  2. Oh how I wish Lemon Lime Twist could be here forever. I think I might wear out my ink pad in the next two years I’ll use it so much. Not only is Lemon Lime Twist such a great color by itself… but it goes so well with my other favorite colors and color schemes. (One is Bermuda Bay, I love that little splash of color you added there.)

  3. I knew you’d pick something bright! You can’t get any brighter than Lemon Lime Twist!!! I am in love with this colour too! & Also in love with your card! It’s fantabulous! ?
