You Make Life a Picnic with Newton’s Nook Designs

Hello my crafty peeps! I hope you are having a great week so far! I am back today with a summer-themed card showcasing the Woodland Picnic stamp set and coordinating dies, just released last week.  The stamp set and dies are now available for purchase at Newton’s Nook Designs .

Here’s my card:

I started with an A2 size Bristol smooth white card stock and used a die from my stash to die-cut the window.  I took the middle negative piece and the Sunscape Stencil to ink-blend the background with distress oxide inks.

 

I stamped the images on some Spectrum Noir Ultra Smooth Premium white card stock and colored the images in with my Spectrum Noir TriBlend markers.  I used the coordinating dies to die-cut the images.

The grass panels were die-cut using the Land Borders die set and some patterned paper.  The clouds were die-cut using some dies from my stash.

To finish my design, I stamped the tiny ants from the Newton’s Picnic stamp set on the grass panel and also stamped the sentiment with Versafine Onyx Black ink.  Here’s a closer look:

I absolutely ADORE the images on this stamp set, I can’t even pick a favorite.  This stamp set is so versatile you can use it for any season.

I hope you like my card today.  The supplies I used are listed and linked below.   Have a wonderful day and happy crafting!

For our projects today, the design team is showcasing the Say Woof stamp set and the Woof Stencil:

Here’s my card:

I started with an A2-size Bristol smooth panel and ink blended this using my blending tools and distress oxide inks.  I sprayed the panel with some water and dabbed it with some paper towel to get the distress look.  I used the speech bubble die to die-cut the panel and stamped this piece with some Versamark ink and sprinkled white embossing powder, then heat-set with my heating tool.  To add more texture and interest, I used the Woof stencil and Moonstone glimmer paste.

The film strip was die-cut 3 times and I adhered them together to add some dimension.  I stamped and colored the dogs from the Fabulous Frenchies stamp set and used the coordinating dies to cut them out.

To assemble the card, I adhered the front panel to a side-fold card base, then added the film strip with some liquid adhesive.  The dogs were adhered using foam adhesive.  Lastly, I added the speech bubble with some foam tape to make it stand out.

Here’s a closer look:

I made another card using the Say Woof stamp set and the Woof stencil.  Here’s what it looks like:

Don’t you just love the sentiment on this card?!  I know all dog-lovers will agree that “dog hair” is our glitter, haha!  This stamp set is another must-have!
