Welcome to the Newton’s Nook May release week! Today we’re starting off with a big reveal! Two stamps sets and two die sets! They are definitely must haves and are already staples in my crafting.
A new series of stamps called roundabouts, circle frames dies and banner trio dies. I’ve got a couple of cards to share with you using these products in different ways.
First, I was just itching to make a shaped card with the new circle frames so I die cut the largest circle twice and stamped the birthday roundabout on one of them. I sat down a did some relaxing coloring therapy on that and one of the pups from puppy playtime. I stamped my sentiment on a teal banner from the new banner trio set and popped it up with foam tape, then popped the puppy up too.
I took the second circle and used a scoring board to score a line about a 1/2 inch from the top and put adhesive on that small part. Then I stuck the circles together to create my card. After that I moved on to finishing touches. I used black glaze pen on the puppy’s eyes, stickles on the balloons and star on the gift bag, and then glossy accents on random polka dots, stripes and candles around the image.
For my next card, I went totally out of my usual and did a little messy watercolor on a heat embossed image of the floral roundabout.
I started by heat embossing the image in white and then watercolored with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers. I used the rounded rectangle from Frames and Flags to cute a it out off-center. I took a yellow panel and used yellow in with the petite flowers stencil and die cut it with the scalloped rectangle, also from Frames and Flags. Then I used the new trio banner dies and heat embossed the sentiment and watercolored a light green over it.
Moving on to assembly, I popped the stenciled background up with foam tape and then also popped the watercolor panel up. I adhered the banner to that and added some pearlescent gems around for a little sparkle.
