8th-Year Birthday Celebration, a Mini Release + Sale & a Giveaway!

Today I am excited to be part of  the 8-year anniversary celebration with Newton’s Nook Designs!  To celebrate this awesome milestone, Newton’s Nook Designs has released adorable new cupcake themed products, which I will be sharing on my projects today. THERE ARE PRIZES TOO! Read all the way to the end of this post to find out how you can win! YAY!

For today’s festivities, the design team is showcasing the Cupcakes Layering Stencils with Newton’s Cupcake stamp set and coordinating dies. Here’s what they look like:

I stamped the images twice on some Neenah solar white card stock with some Memento Rich Cocoa ink. I colored the images in with Spectrum Noir alcohol markers and used the coordinating die to die-cut both images.

Next, the scallop die from the Frames & Flags die set was die-cut with some Bristol smooth white card stock. I ink-blended this panel using the Cupcakes Layering stencils with different colors of dye inks. I set this panel aside to let it dry while I work on my focal point.

I used the reverse scallop die from the Framework Die Set to die-cut some hot-pink card stock. Since this is a birthday card, I wanted to add some fun elements to this to add the shaker components. I adhered some vellum on the reverse scallop die-cut and added some foam adhesive to create the well. I added some sprinkles as my shaker element and adhered this on the ink-blended panel.

I matted the focal background panel on another pink card stock before adhering to an A2 size white notecard. I finished my design by adhering the colored image on the card. For added dimension, I adhered the sprinkles on the frosting with some liquid glue. Here’s another look:

The second card is a lot easier since I already had another colored image to use. The focal panel was made by using the Sunscape Stencil with some dye ink. I used the Cascading Stars Stencil with some texture paste to add texture and dimension to this panel. I set this aside to let it dry for about half an hour.

Once the panel was dry, I matted this onto some blue card stock before adhering to an A-2 size note card.

I finished the card design by using my white gel pen to add some details to the frosting and adhered the image with liquid glue.

I hope you like the cards I made today. The supplies I used are listed and linked below. Don’t forget to use the coupon code “8YEARS” to get 15% off your order.

NNDNewtonsMovieNight1A

Here’s how I made it:

  • stamp the images on smooth white card stock, color and and die-cut the images using the coordinating dies.  I used the dies to die-cut the 3D glasses and the popcorn but I fussy-cut the main image.
  • Ink up an A2 size piece of Bristol smooth white card stock with distress oxide inks.  I used Victorian Velvet distress oxide ink.
  • I smooshed my Aged Mahogany distress oxide ink onto an acrylic block and used my distress sprayer to add water.  I then used my watercolor brush to splatter some color onto my inked up background.
  • I used the popcorn stencil and moonstone glimmer paste to add some glitter and shine on my background, using a palette knife.

  • I used another die from my stash to die-cut the “wooden floors”.  I also used this die to die-cut the colored background.  I adhered both panels to my A2-size card base.

  • I die-cut some diagonal frames in white and pink card stock and adhered them together, and stamped my sentiment.
  • I adhered all of the pieces onto the card.
  • I finished my design by adding some glossy accents to the 3D glasses.
