Hello friends! There’s only 24 more hours until the May Release from My Favorite Things becomes available! I have two fun cards to share with you today that feature the new Main Squeeze Stamp Set. I designed both cards similarly except that one is filled with lemons and the other one with limes.
For my first card, I stamped a few images from the Main Squeeze Stamp Set onto a sheet of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I colored them with Copic Markers and used the coordinating dies to cut them out. For a list of all the Copic colors that I used, scroll toward the bottom of this post.
For the background on this card, I used the new Rectangle Extraordinaire Stencil to blend some yellow Distress Oxide Inks (Squeezed Lemonade, Mustard Seed, and Fossilized Amber) to a 4.25″ x 5.5″ piece of Smooth White Card Stock.
I then splattered this section with some water as well as some diluted White and Black Paint. Once dry, I then diecut this piece using the largest stitched rectangle from the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX Die-namics. I adhered this piece to a top-folding A2 card base and then added my images with some 3D Foam Adhesive Squares after stamping my sentiment.
I created my second card in a similar fashion except that I used a blend of Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn Distress Oxide Inks for my background.
I colored my images once again with Copic Markers and cut them out with the coordinating Main Squeeze Die-namics.
Copic Colors Used:
- Limes: YG01, YG06, YG17, YG67, G28
- Lemons: Y02, Y13, Y15, V12
- Bright Green Leaves: YG01, YG06, YG17, YG67
- Olive Green Leaves: YG91 YG93, YG95, YG99
