Hello Newton’s Nook fans! Have you seen last week’s April release? What was your favorite? I am back today to share with you two farm-themed cards, showcasing the Oink stamp set and coordinating dies with the Moo stamp set and coordinating dies.
Here’s my first card:
I started out by stamping my images on Neenah solar white card stock and colored them in with Copic markers. I used the coordinating dies to die-cut the images. I inked up a Bristol smooth white card stock with some Broken China distress oxide inks to create the sky. I die-cut the rest of the images that I needed and assembled the card. Here’s a closer look:
I absolutely ADORE these little piggies. I don’t know about you but I think pigs are extremely cute. A crafty friend of mine has a pet pig and that pig is so smart it makes me want to have one as a pet.
For my second project, I did all those steps that I mentioned above. However for my grass hill and trees, I inked up my Neenah solar white card stock with some freshly cut grass ink using some make-up brushes. I really love how it turned out.
For my background, I inked up the background with Tumbled Glass and Spun Sugar distress oxide inks. I also used the aged mahogany distress oxide inks to add the colorful speckles. To create my clouds, I used the Cloudy Sky stencil by Newton’s Nook with some Peacock Feathers distress oxide ink. Here’s a closer look:
The sentiment was stamped using Aged Mahogany distress oxide ink and “note to self”, next time wait for it to dry before adhering it to the card base. I smudged the sentiment a little. I didn’t want all of my efforts to be wasted so I am keeping the card as it is. To finish the design, I used my Sakura white gel pen to add some dots and lines to the trees to give it a little dimension. I do LOVE how both cards turned out (with the exception of my little boo-boo!).
I hope you like my cards. The supplies I used are listed and linked below in case you are interested. Thank you for stopping by my blog today and happy crafting!
