Newton’s Nook Designs – January Release Day 2 – Love & Chocolate



Hello stampers and crafters! Thank you for stopping by.  Today is release day (Day 2) at Newton’s Nook Designs.  If you haven’t checked out yesterday’s post, please do so to see the amazing projects created by our design team members.  Please also check out our Instagram photos to get more inspiration.

For my card below, I stamped my images on Neenah solar white card stock with my memento tuxedo black ink. I colored the images using my Copic markers (I opted for pastel colors), and die-cut my stamped images with its coordinating dies.   To give my macaroons a little bit more detail, I used my liquid appliqué and heating tool to puff up the white liquid and make it look like icing.

At this point, I decided to make this a shaker card. I used my 3M Scotch foam adhesive to adhere it on my card stock to create my window panel for the card. I wanted the macaroons to be the main focal point on this card so I created a white on white background, and used some clear sparkling sequins for my shaker element.


I also used this stamp set for my planner layout this week.  I really love stretching my stamps and using them to decorate my planner.



I hope you like my card and my planner layout and somehow got inspired today. This Love & Chocolate stamp set and Love & Chocolate Dies will be available for purchase on January 20 at 8:00 a.m. CST.
