For the first day of the reveals, we are showcasing the Newton’s 4th of July and Buns Out Stamp Sets with their coordinating dies, along with the Fireworks stencil.

To make my first card, I stamped the images with Memento Rich Cocoa ink on some Neenah solar white card stock. I colored the images in with alcohol markers and cut them out using the coordinating dies.

The background was very simple to create. I started with some patterned paper and stamped this panel with Versamark ink. I used some white and gold embossing powder and used my heating tool to heat-set the images make them stand out!

Newton was adhered with some foam adhesive for added dimension. I added the sentiment that was also stamped with Versamark with white embossing powder and heat-set with the heating tool. Here’s a closer look:

The next card I have for you today is also fairly simple. I started by masking off some Neenah solar white card stock with masking tape. I used the Sunscape stencil with some distress oxide ink to create the sun-rays, building up the color intensity towards the sun for added depth.

The image was stamped with VersaFine Clair in Pinecone. Since this is a waterproof ink, I colored the image with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. I used the coordinating die to die-cut the image and adhered on my focal panel with liquid glue.

I finished my design by adding glossy accents to the sunglasses for added texture and stamped the sentiment with VersaFine Ink in Nocturne. I also used my white gel pen to add some dots and lines to the sunglasses.

Easy, peasy, right?!

  1. Love how you stenciled the sun rays and then added color inbetween, as well!! That night sky is just fabulous!! Love both of your cards!!


  2. Love the rocket ride over the buildings and the sun and bun layout too! Wonderful work on these two creations – TFS


  3. The background on your 1st card looks like you ink blended it but I saw that it was actually patterned paper. The metallic fireworks look beautiful on the purple/pink background. I love the scene that you created with Newton!
