Hello everyone. I am back today for Newton’s Nook Designs and I am sharing a simple dog-themed card, showcasing the Terrific Terriers stamp set and its coordinating dies. I am currently in Toronto, Canada undergoing physiotherapy so I will keep this blog post short.
I started out by stamping my images on Neenah solar white card stock and I colored my images in with my Copic markers. I die-cut the rest of the pieces that I needed for my card using dies from my stash. I finished my design by creating my own “patterned paper” using the paw prints and the heart that came with the stamp set.
Here is my card today. As you can see, it is very simple but I really love how it turned out. This stamp set is now available for purchase at http://www.newtonsnook.com. Have an amazing day!
Today I am featuring two cards that I created using the new Stamp Set by http://www.jessicalynnoriginal.com called the “UFO Brentwood Owl”. I am super excited to share these cards with you today because I absolutely love the images that Jessica created for this set. If you would like to win this stamp set, please head on over and leave a comment on Jessica’s Blog post (http://jessicalynnoriginalstamps.blogspot.com). Jessica will choose a random winner and she will announce it on her Blog, so please stay tuned for that.
To start, this stamp set reminds me of my love for the 90’s TV show, “Roswell”. My children and I were addicted to Roswell, and Buffy The Vampire Slayer – two famous TV shows at the time when my children were still young. Since we live overseas, I always pre-recorded the shows so that after homework and dinner, the kids and I will have some quality time together watching the show. We even listened to the Roswell soundtrack in my car while I drove them to school.
The first card below is a side-step card. I always love creating interactive cards, and I thought that Brentwood needed to have more space so that I can highlight each of the stamp images in their own way, without it getting “lost”. I think I was able to capture this sense by making a farm-scene at night with the moon shining in the background.
I first colored Brentwood and the UFO images with my Copics. Then I put glossy accents on Brentwood’s helmet to achieve the look of glass, and make it look more realistic. While waiting for the glossy accents to dry, I then stamped the other images using some of the stamps I already have in my stash and preceded to die-cut the pieces. Once I had everything laid out, it was really easy to put the card together. I added stickles to the moon and the UFO beam to make it stand out a little.
The second card below is very patriotic. With the 4th of July coming up, I think this is a perfect project to make in time for our Independence Day. My original idea was to create a scene where Brentwood was holding the USA flag landing on the moon, but one of our design team members already made a card using a similar design. I was in Germany and Lithuania for a week and only came back yesterday, so I was a bit late creating these cards. However, I still wanted to create a scene in space, so I decided to create a shaker card. Brentwood is holding the USA flag, but with the UFO, stars confetti, blue and red seed beads as the shaker material. I also added glossy accents to Brentwood’s helmet but unfortunately it didn’t show through the photo. I had so much fun creating this card. What do you guys think? I will post a tutorial on my YouTube channel for these two cards.
Thank you so much for stopping by and have an amazing weekend!
