While today’s post is a tribute to Lemon Lime Twist (one of five colors retiring on June 3 or when supplies run out), I want to start by letting you know that I posted my 2019 Annual Catalog Product Shares yesterday. What fun!Designer Series Paper Swatch Books, Stampin' Up! 2019 Annual Catalog, Brian King, www.stampwithbrian.com


Dear Lemon Lime Twist,

When you first introduced yourself to me (with your bright, cheery tones and uplifting spirit), I wasn’t quite sure how to embrace you. I’d never seen a Stampin’ Up! color so bright before – you were like a strange highlighter color at first. I quickly warmed up to you, though, and realized YOU PAIR WITH EVERYTHING. You look great with Subtle, Bright, Regal and Neutral Colors and even with your other In Color friends. Lemon Lime Twist, you bring out the best in other colors, and I’m so glad I’ve been able to spend two years with you.

Please stay on your best behavior so you can, one day, come back to us.


Lemon Lime Twist, Stampin' Up! 2017-2019 In Color, www.stampwithbrian.comThis electric green has been a part of our lives for two years, but it’s time to say goodbye. If you aren’t ready to let go, this is a great time to stock up on some of your favorite Lemon Lime Twist products – papers, inks, ribbons, etc. Once these items are gone, they are gone – so don’t wait.

  1. I agree that Lemon Lime Twist goes with everything. I have stocked up. Love all your pretty cards today and the color combinations are saved. Have a great Sunday!

  2. Love this wild and wacky color !! I have stocked up because it is a fun color especially for birthdays and summer cards . I predict that it will return ,but for now it must leave .
    Bye LLT ! Looking forward to your return celebration !

  3. Lemon Lime Twist, I think “I’ll miss you most of all”

  4. Hands down…….Lemon Lime Twist was my favorite. THANKS for sharing.

  5. A fitting tribute to a fun, fun color! Going to miss it.

  6. Really going to miss you LLT…you make it everything more bright!

  7. Brian you really put Lemon Lime Twist to good use. Your parade of cards are super fun creations. I too am hoping this color will return one day, however; at least we have Granny Apple Green for now.

  8. I was slow to the LLT party, but then became obsessed with this color because of its incredible versatility (as your cards and color combo inspirations prove) and vibrancy. Yup; already stockpiled some card stock and the Re-inker. Not ready to say goodbye just yet! Thanks for the fun card parade.

  9. As u know, Brian, LL Twist is one of my non-blue all-time favorites. I love you color combos & all the amazing cards you created. Thanks for the product share offers. You’re the best!!

  10. You’re killing me, Brian! The LLT paper is all sold out, and I didn’t get to stock up with extra before it was gone! I will need to be very selective about using it from now on. Going to miss it so much!

  11. I love this color; your bird cards are fabulous!
