Newton’s Nook – January Release Day 2

Hello again! We’re on to day 2 of the Newton’s Nook January release reveals and I’m completely smitten with today’s goodies!

Smitten Kittens

Slimline Masking Stencils – Circle and Square

Slimline Masking Stencils – Hearts

I had soooo much fun creating with these products. Today I have 2 cards to share with you showcasing those adorable kittens and a couple of the new masking stencils too. Then I’ll have even more stencil fun for you tomorrow!

I immediately stamped out that cute kitty couple and colored them up, knowing I was creating a fun Valentine card with them.

For this card, I inked up the hearts using the new masking stencil and then added glitz gel to the center heart for a little extra focus. Then I used the gingham stencil and blue ink for a tone-on-tone look for the rest of my card. I stamped a couple of sentiments from the set in the open hearts and popped the kitties up with foam squares in the center. Then I popped the whole panel up with foam tape on a red card base. I finished things off with some red and white clay hearts, glossy accents on the kitty noses and black glaze pen on the kitty’s eyes that are open.

This card was so much fun to create! I took a panel and centered the circle masking stencil on it. I inked up the 3 spaces and then shifted the stencil and inked up another 3, then I shifted it the other way and inked up the last one, giving me a wonderful rainbow! I stamped and colored that fantastic kitty and cut him out with the coordinating die.

I thought my background was a little lacking so I took the paw print stamp from Smitten Kittens and stamped it in the same color as the circle area I was stamping in. Then I took some watered down black acrylic paint and flicked it all over too. I wanted my card base to match so I also flicked the paint on a gray card base and then popped the panel up with foam tape.

For my sentiment, I went with a speech bubble which I popped up with foam squares along with the kitten. Finishing touches on this card were just glossy accents on the kitty’s toe beans and nose and black glaze pen on his eyes.
