Newton’s Nook January Release – Day 2

Welcome back to day 2 of the Newton’s Nook January release! Today’s set – Love Quarry – is my all-time favorite of this release! I had SOOOO much fun playing with it and have endless amounts of other ideas too!

Love Quarry Stamps and Dies

Seriously, those adorable construction trucks and the punny sayings are just the best!

To make this fun card, I used the land border dies to cut hills and then inked them with distress inks and spritzed them with water. Next, I used acrylic paint to dye my texture paste and then smeared it on my cardstock for an awesome muddy look! While that was drying, I inked my card front to make a blue sky and spritzed it too. Then I set to stamping, coloring and die cutting my images.

Once the mud was dry I popped the panels up with foam tape and started adhering all my pieces. Most of these are popped up with foam tape as well because it masked the mud’s texture.

I decided that these awesome trucks needing to be talking so I used the speech bubbles die set for my sentiments. I love the added whimsy it gave this card.

For finishing touches I added white gel pen accents throughout the images, Wink of Stella glitter brush pen to all the hearts and glossy accents throughout the card design. There is so much awesome texture going on in this card. I’m so in love with it!
