Forgotten Lime

All week I have been thinking that I could not play in the "Lime and Black" challenge at Less is More this week because I don't have any lime.  Then it hit me when I was lying in bed this morning...Lucky Limeade!  DUH!  It is retiring at the end of this catalog too, so I might as well use it up while it is still current!  I decided to make a gender neutral card for today's challenge. Well, it has a little bit of bling on it, but guys need a little bling every now and then too, right?  I know what Brett would say to that! lol
My rectangles were made by rubbing Certainly Celery ink (which is also retiring) and then Lucky Limeade ink directly across Whisper White cardstock with my ink pad. I saw this in our most recent issue of Stampin' Success and thought it looked pretty cool!  I then stamped the splotches from Hey There (the stamp from My Paper Pumpkin) over the top before cutting it up into different sizes of rectangles.  The arrows are from Designer Typeset, my only Photopolymer stamp set. :) There is a new one out that I may have to scoop up, with some humor if you like the quirky kind of sets.  I don't typically, but I am having fun with these two sets that are different from my usual taste, so you never know until you try it!

Stamp Sets: Designer Typeset, Hey There
Cardstock: Lucky Limeade, Whisper White
Ink: Black StazOn, Certainly Celery, Lucky Limeade
Tools: Stripes Embossing Folder
Accessories: Rhinestones, Dimensionals


  1. I'm glad you managed to sort out a little lime for our challenge!
    Super job!
    Thanks so much
    "Less is More"

  2. Very cool, Shana, love how the embossing draws the eye to the arrows, and the arrows point us from there to the sentiment! The bling is perfect (and yes, guys need bling sometimes!) Anita :)

  3. This is great - love those arrows!
