I am convinced that Lemon Lime Twist looks great with ANY color – sometimes it clashes so much that it looks great. Brilliant! This week’s Global Design Project challenge asks us to make a “just a note to say…” card for any occasion. It can be a birthday, a thank you or a casual hello. I paired Lemon Lime Twist with Balmy Blue (a new light blue in the 2018 Annual Catalog) for this fun note card:
- Sheet Music. The Sheet Music background stamp create a gorgeous background for a vintage or modern look – it all depends on what you surround it with and how you present it. The song depicted on this sheet music is Für Elise. It’s a very familiar song to anyone who’s ever taken piano lessons (or known anyone who plays piano). If you are curious, you can hear it here. When you are done, you can also watch 5,000 videos of children and adults who can also play this Beethoven song. Here’s a look at the Sheet Music background stamp: I’ve had this stamp for a while, but this is the first time I’ve inked it up (I’m glad I did!). With all the sheet music Designer Series Paper in last year’s Holiday Catalog, I guess I ignored this beauty. Now’s a good time to revisit it – it’s carrying into the 2018 Annual Catalog, too!
- Very Punny! What better way to send a friendly note than with a silly pun? I know you’ve already connected the dots here (you’re smart), but the “note for you” sentiment from the Wood Words stamp set works perfectly with the music notes on the background stamp – don’t you think? Instead of just stamping the Sheet Music stamp in the background, though, I used my Stamp-a-Ma-Jig to line up the music from various directions (they all meet below the “a note for you” panel. This gives you a better idea of how the music is lined up to create a pattern in the background:
- Balmy Blue. As I mentioned earlier, Lemon Lime Twist looks great with any color – it’s particularly wonderful with a light blue. For this card, I have paired Lemon Lime Twist with Balmy Blue – a new color in Stampin’ Up!’s 2018 Color Collection.
