Farm-themed Cards with Newton’s Nook

Hello Newton’s Nook fans!  Have you seen last week’s April release?  What was your favorite?  I am back today to share with you two farm-themed cards, showcasing the Oink stamp set and coordinating dies with the Moo stamp set and coordinating dies.

 

Here’s my first card:

NNDOink1A

 

I started out by stamping my images on Neenah solar white card stock and colored them in with Copic markers.  I used the coordinating dies to die-cut the images.  I inked up a Bristol smooth white card stock with some Broken China distress oxide inks to create the sky.  I die-cut the rest of the images that I needed and assembled the card.  Here’s a closer look:

I absolutely ADORE these little piggies.  I don’t know about you but I think pigs are extremely cute.  A crafty friend of mine has a pet pig and that pig is so smart it makes me want to have one as a pet.

For my second project, I did all those steps that I mentioned above.  However for my grass hill and trees, I inked up my Neenah solar white card stock with some freshly cut grass ink using some make-up brushes.  I really love how it turned out.

For my background, I inked up the background with Tumbled Glass and Spun Sugar distress oxide inks.  I also used the aged mahogany distress oxide inks to add the colorful speckles.  To create my clouds, I used the Cloudy Sky stencil by Newton’s Nook with some Peacock Feathers distress oxide ink.  Here’s a closer look:

The sentiment was stamped using Aged Mahogany distress oxide ink and “note to self”, next time wait for it to dry before adhering it to the card base.   I smudged the sentiment a little.  I didn’t want all of my efforts to be wasted so I am keeping the card as it is.  To finish the design, I used my Sakura white gel pen to add some dots and lines to the trees to give it a little dimension.  I do LOVE how both cards turned out (with the exception of my little boo-boo!).

I hope you like my cards.  The supplies I used are listed and linked below in case you are interested.  Thank you for stopping by my blog today and happy crafting!

Here’s my card:

How I made it:

  • stamp the images on Neenah solar white card stock and color the images in with Copic markers.
  • die-cut the images using the coordinating dies.
  • die-cut the speech bubbles using the Speech bubble die set and stamp the sentiment on each bubble.
  • die-cut the clouds using the Sky borders die set and the Picket Fence with some white card stock.
  • cut an A2 size piece of Bristol smooth white card stock and use the Sunscape stencil to ink up the background with some distress oxide inks.  I used the Mustard Seed and Fossilized Amber distress oxide inks.
  • use the distress sprayer to spray some water on the inked up background and wipe it with some paper towel.
  • die-cut the grass three times using the grass border die with some patterned paper.
  • adhere the clouds using some foam adhesive.
  • assemble the rest of the elements to finish the card design.

 

To finish my design, I used my Sakura white gel pen to add some lines and dots on the images.  Here’s a closer look:

This whole scene just cracks me up.  If I have to choose a favorite for this week’s reveal, I think it would be this stamp set!
