Hoppy Spring with Newton’s Nook Designs

Hoppy spring!  I know things are so scary for all of us at the moment and creating cards is the one thing that calms my soul.  Without this hobby, I’d probably go nuts!  My husband and I are currently stuck overseas and we are not allowed to go anywhere (or fly home)!  I am sure a lot of you are in the same situation so let us all pray and hope that this pandemic will go away soon!  This is why I decided to share some cheerful shaker card today, showcasing the Hop into Spring stamp set and coordinating dies, with the Framework die set, Woodland Picnic stamp set and coordinating dies, Sky Scene builder dies, Land Border die set and the Essential Alphabet dies.   

 

To make my shaker card, I started by die-cutting some Bristol smooth white card stock using the biggest die from the Framework die set.  I ink-blended this panel with Picked Raspberry, Worn Lipstick and Spun Sugar distress oxide inks.  I used my distress sprayer to spray some water on this panel and dabbed it with my paper towel to dry.  I used a stitched circle die from my stash to die-cut the colored panel to create my window and adhered this piece on an embossed white card stock.  I also used the same circle die to die-cut the grass using the Land Borders die.

 

I stamped the two bunnies from the Hop Into Spring and Woodland Picnic stamp sets on some Neenah solar white card stock and colored them in with my alcohol markers.  I used the coordinating dies to die-cut the images.

 

To create my scene, I used the Sky Builder die set to die cut the sun ad clouds and the word “SPRING” using the Essential Alphabet die set.  Now that I have all of the elements I needed, I started to assemble my card.

 

I added some acetate sheet on my ink-blended panel and foam adhesive to create my well. I adhered the grass and clouds with some liquid adhesive. I added some iridescent hearts as my shaker element.

 

I used “Press N Seal” to line up the letters on my card and adhered them using some liquid glue.

 

 

 

I stamped the word “hoppy”  with Versafine Onyx Black ink and finished my design by adding white dots to the flower using my white gel pen.  Here’s a closer look:

You Make Life a Picnic with Newton’s Nook Designs

Hello my crafty peeps! I hope you are having a great week so far! I am back today with a summer-themed card showcasing the Woodland Picnic stamp set and coordinating dies, just released last week.  The stamp set and dies are now available for purchase at Newton’s Nook Designs .

Here’s my card:

I started with an A2 size Bristol smooth white card stock and used a die from my stash to die-cut the window.  I took the middle negative piece and the Sunscape Stencil to ink-blend the background with distress oxide inks.

 

I stamped the images on some Spectrum Noir Ultra Smooth Premium white card stock and colored the images in with my Spectrum Noir TriBlend markers.  I used the coordinating dies to die-cut the images.

The grass panels were die-cut using the Land Borders die set and some patterned paper.  The clouds were die-cut using some dies from my stash.

To finish my design, I stamped the tiny ants from the Newton’s Picnic stamp set on the grass panel and also stamped the sentiment with Versafine Onyx Black ink.  Here’s a closer look:

I absolutely ADORE the images on this stamp set, I can’t even pick a favorite.  This stamp set is so versatile you can use it for any season.

I hope you like my card today.  The supplies I used are listed and linked below.   Have a wonderful day and happy crafting!
