April Showers Bring May Flowers with Newton’s Nook

Hello Newton’s Nook fans!  I hope you all enjoyed the April stamp release last week and hoping that a lot of you are loving the spring weather and seeing beautiful flowers in your garden.  Spring is what inspired my project today.

For my card I am showcasing the April Showers stamp set, with the Lovely Blooms stamp set and coordinating dies.

Using a scallop border die from my stash, I die-cut a piece of Bristol Smooth white card stock using my die-cutting machine.

I colored my background with my Tattered Rose distress oxide ink with my mini ink blending tool.  I used my distress sprayer to add droplets of water onto my colored background, and dabbed it dry with my paper towel.

On a piece of Neenah solar white card stock, I stamped the flower images from the Lovely Blooms stamp set and colored them in with my Copic markers.  I die-cut the images with the coordinating dies.

I adhered fun foam at the back of my inked background to give it a little dimension and adhered this piece on my card base.  I stamped the sentiment from the April Showers stamp set onto my foreground.   I adhered the flowers using my Nuvo adhesive, and 3M foam adhesive.

I wasn’t really planning on adding a process video but since I colored a lot of images, I thought I might as well show you the process (without the coloring).  If you prefer to watch the video, here it is:

Here is my card:

I finished the design by adding Nuvo Jewel drops to the yellow flower and added white dots on the Hydrangea.

I love how this card turned out.  Wouldn’t this just make someone’s day?  If you haven’t grabbed the April Showers stamp set and the Lovely Blooms stamp set just yet, you need to go to www.newtonsnookdesigns.com before they sold out.  I hope you like my project today.   The supplies I used are listed and linked below.  Thanks for stopping by and happy crafting!
