For Day 2 of the reveals, we are showcasing the Flamingo Oval Stamp Set that goes perfectly with the previously released Oval Fames Die Set that I also paired with the Tropical Leaves Stencil.

The background panel was die-cut using scallop die from the Frames & Flags Die Set. I used the Tropical Leaves Stencil and some texture paste for added interest and texture. Once the panel was dry, I adhered it onto some white A2-size notecard.

I stamped the Flamingo Oval image on some X-Press It Blending Card and colored the images in with alcohol markers. I used the Oval Fames Die Set to cut the oval and also used precision snips to cut out the middle of the images. I foam-mounted this onto the card for added dimension.

The sentiment was stamped on white card stock and coloring the word “THANKS” with some yellow markers. I added this onto some black card stock and adhered on the card with foam-adhesive. I finished the card design by adding some gold pearls. I love mixing pinks with white and gold! Here’s another look at the card:

NND APRIL Release Day 3 – Dad’s BBQ

It’s Day 3 of the April reveals by Newton’s Nook Designs! Are you enjoying the reveals so far? Remember that you have a chance to win the stamp set being revealed each day so please read through til the end of the blog post to find out more info.  [Just a little important note:  I know some of you had difficulties finding the comments section.  If you would like to leave a comment to participate in the giveaway, the “comments section” will only be ever visible when a single post on Word Press is being viewed.

For today’s sneak peek, we are showcasing the Dad’s BBQ Stamp Set + coordinating dies.

I have to admit that I struggle when it comes to creating masculine cards so I hope you like my card below.

I started by masking off a panel of Bristol Smooth White Card Stock and inking up the background with some Distress Oxide Inks and the Cascading Stars stencil.

Next, I stamped the images on some Neenah Solar White Card Stock and colored the images in with alcohol markers. I used the coordinating dies to cut them all out. I also cut a few strips of black card stock and some pattern paper and adhered on the panel with liquid glue.

I foam-mounted the images on the focal panel for added dimension. I also die-cut the word “DAD” using the Essential Alphabet Die Set and ink-blended the letters to match the background. I adhered the letters on the card with liquid glue.

I finished the design by adding the sentiment that I heat-embossed and using some white gel pen to add some dots and stars for added interest. Here’s another look:

NND APRIL Release Day 2 – Destination Love + Lilac Stamp Sets

It’s Day 2 of the April reveals by Newton’s Nook Designs! I hope you were able to check out yesterday’s reveal as well.

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:

Enjoy the Pitter Patter of Puppy Feet With Newton’s Nook Designs

How’s everyone doing today? I am so excited to share this cute card today, showcasing the newly-released Welcome New Dog stamp set and coordinating dies, along with the Petite Paw Prints Stencil, Oval Frames Die Set and Springtime 6×6 Paper Pad by Newton’s Nook Designs.

Since I was traveling for the past three weeks, I was not able to join the March release last week! I hope you were able to check out the new products and shopped til you dropped!

Here’s how I made this card:

  • Ink-blend a panel of Strathmore Bristol Smooth White Card Stock with Distress Oxide inks. I used Tattered Rose, Dried Marigold and Abandoned Coral.
  • Use Pixie Spray and spray the back of the Petite Paw Prints Stencil to add some light tack so that the stencil doesn’t shirt while you’re ink-blending the colors.
  • Adhere the ink-blended panel on some A2-size note card.
  • Use the second die from the Oval Frames Die Set to die-cut the scallop panel and use alcohol marker to color the sides. Adhere this panel on the card with tape runner
  • Use the 3rd die from the Oval Frames Die Set to die-cut some Springtime Paper Pad and foam-mount this piece on the scallop panel for added dimension.
  • Use the 3rd die again from the Oval Frames Die Set and the Land Border die (grass) to die-cut the grass and adhere on the card using tape runner.
  • Stamp the images from the Welcome New Dog stamp set and color the images in with alcohol markers.
  • Use the coordinating dies to cut them all out.
  • Adhere the colored images on the card front.
  • Use white gel pen to add some dots and lines on the perimeter of the scallop die-cut.
  • Finish the design by adhering the sentiment that was heat-embossed and set using the heating tool.

I hope you like my card today and got inspired. The supplies I used are listed and linked below. Thanks for stopping by!
