I hope you’ve enjoyed all the previews so far. Today we have two last ones to share with you before everything goes on sale for you to purchase first thing tomorrow! A Newton’s Nook release wouldn’t be complete without a new Newton image, so we’ve got that covered, and then we have another great floral image to add to that collection too.
Porch Swing Friends
First up I wanted to share the card I made with Porch Swing Friends. I just think it’s so sweet and it makes me wish I had a big porch with a swing like this to relax on.
Given the shape of the image I knew right away I wanted to make a square card so I pulled out my Frames Squared dies and cut some layers out. The scalloped panel is inked with the Clouds stencil and each of the layers are popped up with foam tape. I stamped, colored and die cut my image and then used my MISTI to stamp my sentiment. For finishing touches I added white gel pen accents and glossy accents to their noses. This scene is so sweet and relaxing, I just love it! And that sentiment…remember it from earlier in the week? I used it on one of my Bleat cards on Tuesday. It’s so great and versatile to use all the time.
Next up I am excited to share this beautiful card featuring the new Roses stamps and dies.
I started by actually coloring three roses and die cutting them all. I had an idea of filling the fence line with them but it cluttered up too much and I wanted you to see the cool mountains in the background. So now I have two extra roses to make other fun cards with. Bonus!
I used the Frames and Flags dies along with the Fence die, Land Borders dies and Mountains stencil to create my scene. After I inked up my stenciled panel I used texture paste on the mountains and set it aside to dry. I thought the yellow panel was a little plain so I added some Petite Flowers stenciled in yellow ink for a subtle texture. You know my by now, the layers are adhered with foam tape for that great dimension and the scene is all attached with liquid glue. I really find that this helps with the inked panels. It just sticks better.
I wanted to keep the sentiment simple so I just used the Hello stamp on a die cut banner from the Banner Trio dies and inked it with the same blue in the sky for consistency.
I live in the Pacific Northwest and I really feel like this card is home. The mountains and roses with lush green grass everywhere. It’s super comforting and just makes me happy.
