NND August Reveals – Day 2 – Fabulous Frenchies


It is the second day of the August reveals by Newton’s Nook Designs.   I hope you were able to check out yesterday’s reveal.  You have a chance to win each stamp set during release week so check out the details I have indicated at the end of this blog post.  [Just a little important note:  I know some of you had difficulties finding the comments section.  If you would like to leave a comment to participate in the giveaway, the “comments section” will only be ever visible when a single post on Word Press is being viewed.

For our projects today, the design team is showcasing the Fabulous Frenchies stamp set and coordinating dies.


I stamped my images on Neenah solar white card stock and colored them in with my Copic markers.  I die-cut the images with the coordinating dies.  I always color more than one image so that when I need to use it for my project, I already have it colored and die-cut and all I have to do is think of a card design.

I inked up my background using my handmade stencil with Spun Sugar distress oxide ink.  I wanted to create a different background for my card other than a blue sky.  I also inked up the hill with Mowed Lawn distress oxide ink.  I die-cut a scalloped border and adhered it on my card.  I also adhered my cute little Frenchie.  Here’s my card:


I used black and white wash tape to decorate both sides of my card.  I love the simplicity of this card.  I’m not sure why the shirt looks blue on the photo but it is actually dark gray.   It’s been raining so much in Florida and I haven’t had much luck taking bright photos lately and I apologize for that.


This stamp set is a must-have!  I can’t wait to show you my other card using this stamp set next week.

  1. So very lovely, Maria. I love his blue & white striped shirt & red beret. That’s how I
    envision everyone in Paris dressed. lol I don’t know why. I didn’t realize you live in
    Florida. Me, too. I love the rain and especially thunderstorms (which we are
    getting every day!). But yeah, not good for the lighting. 🙂


  2. Amazing card! So many fantastic details – the die stitched vertical borders, the patterned paper, the sweet oval die and perfectly balanced use of white space. Love the pink sky – so perfectly compliments this design.
