For the last day of the reveals, the design team is showcasing the Newton’s Birdhouse stamp set and coordinating dies, with the Mother’s Day and Father’s Day minis tamp sets. Here’s what they look like:
Here’s my first card with the Newton’s Birdhouse stamp set:
Here’s how I made my card:
- stamp and color the image with Copic markers (or any coloring medium of your choice)
- die-cut the image using the coordinating dies.
- cut an A2 size of Bristol smooth white card stock and ink up the background with different distress oxide inks.
- die-cut the picket fence with some white card stock. Cut the picket fence to create two small ones.
- ink up another piece of some Bristol smooth white card stock using mowed lawn distress oxide inks.
- use the grass border die to die-cut this piece.
- use a stitched die to create the flying pattern for the bird.
- use the little dots from the Tranquil Tides stamp set to stamp onto the background.
- assembled the card.
Here’s a closer look:
I finished my design by adding some white dots on the birdhouse using my Sakura white gel pen.
For my second project, I created a one-layer card using the Mother’s Day mini stamp set and some images from the Cottage Garden stamp set, with some pastel-color inks.
I added glossy accents to the flower to give it a little shine and dimension. I love creating backgrounds using small stamp sets.
For my third project, I created another one-layer card using the Father’s Day stamp set and some images from the Tranquil Tides stamp set.
I really think the images on the Tranquil Tides stamp set went perfectly well with the Father’s Day mini stamp. I finished my design by adhering starfishes with some foam adhesive and adding glossy accents to the card.
That is all for this week! I hope you guys LOVE the projects that we’ve made for you using the new stamps, dies and stencils by Newton’s Nook Designs.
