Squeeze the day! – Newton’s Nook Designs

Hello Everyone,

Today I brought you a pair of cards, yummy and juicy, refreshing and motivational, made with the latest release from Newton’s Nook Designs.

I started with stamping the lemon slices from the Lemon Twist stamp set on Ranger Distress Watercolour cardstock with Distress Oxide inks. I used Twisted Citron, Spiced Marmalade and Squeezed Lemonade.

As it dries slowly I had time to pour clear embossing powder over it and heat emboss with a heat gun. I made a bunch of these, coloured them quickly with Tombow markers and used a water brush to move the colours. I love how fast it was and the result is so unique!

I used the coordinating dies to cut them out and also cut some leaves from green cardstock with the Flower Trio die set.

Then I worked on the backgrounds. I die cut the scalloped rectangles (Frameworks die set) from Ranger Distress Watercolour cardstock and used the wet-on-wet technique to create a juicy background.

I added some water with a brush, then squeezed some Distress Inks on my craft mat and dropped the colours on the wet area. I dried it with a heat tool and added another layer. I repeated the process with all 3 colours. It really looks like squeezed juice for me 🙂

I stamped the sentiment in black and gave the juicy backgrounds a colourful mat before adhering to a black and white striped patterned paper.

I arranged the leaves and popped up the citrus slices with 3D foam squares.

I finished the cards with some jewels from Lucy’s Little Things and Pretty Pink Posh.

I hope you like today’s inspiration, check back later for some more!

See you,
