Hi there! I have some fun projects to share with you today using the new Squeeze the Day stamps and dies from the latest Ellen Hutson release. This release was a fantastic one; a little something for everyone…. and this beautiful lemon set was my favorite. I love all things lemon; the citrus fruits connote such a clean, fresh look, and I had so much fun creating with this beautiful stamp set. I used it in my latest Exploring With Emily video, which you can watch below or here in HD:
I also created this clean, graphic project using the Squeeze the Day stamps. I love pairing black and white with a pop of bright color, and these fresh citrus stamps worked beautifully as limes, in addition to lemons!
I began by stamping and heat embossing the limes, a lime wedge, and some foliage and flowers on some white card stock using Versafine ink and clear embossing powder. I then colored the images using my Copic markers in shades of bright and deep green and die cut them with the coordinating dies.
To continue the super clean and graphic feel of the project, I then stamped the Diamond Tile Background from The Stamp Market again using Versafine and clear embossing powder. I also stamped a greeting from Squeeze the Day onto a strip of white card stock, then matted it on a slightly larger strip of black card stock to create a stark black frame and add some contrast to keep the greeting from fading into the busy background.
After adhering the sentiment strip with foam adhesive, I added the Copic-colored citrus die cuts using both foam and liquid adhesive to create lots of dimension. The final step was to add some Shamrock gems to add some sparkle and help create a visual cascade!
Annnndddd…… the Essentials By Ellen Summer Sale has begun! The Squeeze the Day stamps and dies are in this category, as well as a bunch of other favorites (including Mondo Hydrangea and my favorite Stitches Cover Plate. Gasp!) There are ten pages of sale items, so I’d highly encourage you to go check them out!! Some things will sell out quickly, so run, don’t walk over to the Essentials By Ellen Summer Sale!
Well, that’s all for my projects today! I can’t believe it’s almost July, bringing a new month of releases and fun goodies for you (and me!) to enjoy! Thanks so much for stopping by today, and have a marvelous day!
