Newton’s Nook Designs 6-Year Celebration – Day 4

 

 

I always get bummed during the last day of the reveals but don’t be sad because tomorrow, we will have a huge blog hop.   I hope you were able to check out the first three days of the reveal.  Which one is your favorite so far?  As I mentioned before, I can’t even pick a favorite this month!

 

You also have a chance to win a $20 store credit everyday 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. Please click on this particular blog post and you will be able to leave a comment below.  Thank you!]  

 

For our projects today, the design team is showcasing quite a few stamp sets and coordinating dies so I will not have a step-by-step instruction.  I will only be showing you the photos and close-ups.  However, I will have a YouTube video sometime in the next coming weeks to show you some of the cards that I created today.  Be sure to subscribe to my YouTube channel if you haven’t already.  For today’s reveal we are showcasing the Lemon Twist, Gull Friend, Newton’s Melon and Shrimp Cocktails stamp set + coordinating dies.

 

 

Here’s my card showcasing the Lemon Twist stamp set.  I also used the Serene Stripes stencil and Tombow markers to color my images.

 

I added the sentiment “make lemonade” inside the card.

 

 

 

Here’s my card showcasing the Gull Friends stamp set.   I cannot even describe how much I just LOVE this cute stamp set:  I am just blown away on how Jennifer gets to design so many cute stamp set, dies and stencils.

 

 

I also used the Sunscape Stencil for my card and a small die from my stash to cut out the piece so I can insert the image.  I love, love, love this cutie!  Here’s a close-up:

 

 

Here’s my Newton’s Melon card.  I used the Speech Bubbles die set and ink-blended the card stock with some distress oxide ink to make it look like watermelon.  Clean and simple but I love how it turned out.

 

 

Here’s a closer look:

 

 

Last but not the least, here’s my Shrimp Cocktails card.  I used the Bubbly Stencil for my background with a some dye inks.  The bow is from the Pines & Holly die set.

 

 

This card just cracks me up!  I wanted to create my scene to make it look like they are hanging out and floating in a glass!  I love the shaker elements that I used for the card too.  Here’s a close-up:

 

 

Whew! What do you think?  Do you have a favorite?  I love, love, love all of the stamps, dies and stencils revealed this week.  Don’t forget to come back tomorrow because we are having a HUGE blog hop where Jennifer will be picking Six (6) lucky winners!
