Thinking of You Card with Newton’s Nook Designs

I have been building up my stash of “just-because” cards and today’s project features the Lilac Stamp Set and Coordinating Dies with the A7 Frames and Banners Die Set by Newton’s Nook Designs.

Here’s how I made this card:

  • stamp the images on some Neenah Classic Crest Solar white card stock.
  • color images in with alcohol markers (or any medium of your choice).
  • die-cut the images using the coordinating die.
  • die-cut some pattern paper that compliments the color of the stamp images using the biggest die from the A7 Frames & Banners Die Set.
  • die-cut the frame (using the same die set above) on some Neenah solar white card stock. adhere some acetate sheet on this frame and add foam adhesive to create the shaker well.
  • add some iridescent sequins as the shaker element on top and close the shaker.
  • adhere the card front on an A7 card base.
  • add the focal images on each window with either liquid glue or tape runner.
  • use the banner die to die-cut some lilac card stock. stamp the sentiment on this piece using Versamark ink. Sprinkle some white embossing powder and heat set with heating tool.
  • adhere the sentiment on the middle of the card to finish the design.

For today’s sneak peek, we are showcasing the Destination Love + coordinating dies with the Lilac Stamp Set + coordinating dies.

As soon as I saw the Destination Love stamp set, I immediately thought of this card design. I just didn’t know what colors would work well together so I tested a few markers and colored a few images. The one I picked stood out the most and I used the coordinating dies to die-cut the images.

Next, I used the Oval Frame Die set to die-cut the oval frame on some white card stock. The oval die-cut was ink-blended with distress oxide inks and the Sunscape stencil. The negative die-cut was dry-embossed with an embossing folder for added interest.

I foam-mounted the images on the focal panel and finished the card design by adding the sentiment that I heat-embossed on some black card stock.

The next card is really simple. I stamped the images a few times on some A2-size panel and colored the images in with alcohol markers.

For added interest and texture, I stamped the dots a few times from the Tranquil Tides stamp set. I thought this added a whimsical touch to the overall card design.

I finished the design by stamping the sentiment from the Birthday Essentials stamp set. Here’s another look at the card:
