01.17.2023…..Happy Tuesday, my stampin’ friends! I’ve been having so much fun with with all of the new products from the new Stampin’ Up! January – April 2023 Mini Catalog! And…..one of my faves is the Sweet Citrus Bundle (Sweet Citrus Stamp Set + Sweet Citrus Hybrid Embossing Folder)! It is such a wonderful bundle, and I just love how you can die cut and emboss (at the same time) using the dies and the embossing folder from this bundle! Hope this card inspires you to create a colorful, fun card or project using products from this new Mini Catalog, as well!

For this card, I started with some Basic White Thick Cardstock, embossed it with the Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder, and adhered it to a Basic White Thick Cardstock base.
To create the background, I used a Blending Brush to add soft swirls of Polished Pink to some Basic White Thick Cardstock. Next, I used my Water Painter to “flick” water drops across the cardstock, then dried it with a Heat Tool. I also added a little extra detail around the edges, using one of the Stitched with Whimsy Dies, and used Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere it to the card base.
I used Sweet Citrus Hybrid Embossing Folder (along with the coodinating die from the Sweet Citrus Bundle) to create the lemon slices, using Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper. I then used a Water Painter, along with Daffodil Delight and Flirty Flamingo, to color them.
To create the leaves, I used one of the dies from the Sweet Citrus Bundle, along with Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper. I used a Water Painter, along with Granny Apple Green, to color the leaves.
The sentiment (from the Sweet Citrus Bundle) was heat-embossed on Basic White Thick Cardstock, using my Versamark Pad and Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder.
For the bow, I used my Daffodil Delight and Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blends Marker Combo Pack to color some White Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon. Before I created the bow, I cut the ribbon in half lengthwise. For a bit of bling, I sprinkled on Opal Rounds and Iridescent Rhinestone Basic Jewels.
