Welcome Spring Slimline Card with Newton’s Nook

Spring has sprung and I have a beautiful slimline card to share with you today, showcasing the Easter Lily stamp set and coordinating dies, along with the Slimline Frames & Portholes die set, Basket Weave stencil, Spring Roundabout stamp set, Banner Trio die set and Flower Trio die set by Newton’s Nook Designs.

To make the card, I started by stamping my images three times on some Neenah solar white card stock using Memento Rich Cocoa ink.  I colored the images in with my alcohol markers and die-cut using the coordinating dies.

Next, the scallop background was made by die-cutting the scallop card stock using the Slimline Frames & Portholes die set.  I used the Basket Weave stencil with Speckled Egg Distress Oxide ink to create a subtle pattern for my flowers for added texture.  I adhered this piece onto some pink card stock, then added to a slimline card base.

I layered the flowers and adhered them onto the card with foam and liquid adhesive for added dimension.  I also die-cut a few leaves from the Flower Trio die set and sponged some Mowed Lawn Distress Ink for added texture and detail.

I die-cut some black card stock using the Banner Trio die set.   I stamped the sentiment from the Spring Roundabout stamp set with some Versamark ink.  I sprinkled some white embossing powder then heat-set with my heating tool.  I finished my design by adding a few Clear Enamel dots for added texture.   Here’s another look:

I hope I have given you some great inspiration today to create something beautiful.  The supplies I use are listed and linked below.  Thanks for stopping by and Happy Spring!

For Day 3, we are showcasing the Love Emergency stamp set and coordinating dies along with two new Slimline Masking Stencils.

To begin, I stamped my images on some Neenah solar white card stock and colored them in with my Spectrum Noir alcohol markers.   I used the coordinating dies to die-cut them out.  I added some glossy accents on the images for added texture and set it aside to dry.

I die-cut the red scallop and the black frame using the Slimline Frames & Portholes die set and Slimline Frames & Windows die set.  I adhered the pieces on a matted slimline card base, and foam-mounting the black frame for added dimension.

The clouds were made using the Cloudy Sky stencil and some quick-dry dye ink and little trees that were die-cut using a die set from my collection.  The positive pieces from the black frame were also used to create the road for my scene, using my gel pen to draw the lines.

I adhered the focal images using my tape runner, then finished my design by stamping the sentiment using Versafine Onyx black ink.  Here’s another look:

Newton’s Nook June Release Day 1 – Farming Fun Stamp Set with Slimline Dies

It is that time of the month where the entire design team get so excited to show off the new stamps, dies and stencils by Newton’s Nook Designs.  You also 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. Please click on this particular blog post and you will be able to leave a comment below.  Thank you!]  

 

For the first day of the reveals we are starting with a HUGE bang and showcasing the Farming Fun stamp set with its coordinating dies along with the Slimline Frames & Portholes and Slimline Frames & Windows die set.  I am so bummed as I didn’t receive the dies before this release (it is still stuck in NY as I write this post) so you will not see them on my projects this week.

 

 

To make my card, I started by stamping my images on some Neenah solar white card stock.  I colored my images in with my Spectrum Noir alcohol markers.  Since I didn’t have the dies, I used my precision snips to fussy-cut the images.

 

I used the Circle Frame dies to die-cut the window in the middle of my A2-size card stock.  I used the Hills & Grass stencil with some dye inks to create my scene.  I also inked-up the circle die-cut using the same Hills & Grass stencil with the Clouds stencil to continue the design for a more cohesive look.

 

 

I adhered the colored images on my card with some liquid glue.

 

 

To finish my card design, I added the sun from the Sky Scene Builder die set and also added the small trees using a die from my collection.  Here’s another look:
