I can’t believe we’re on the final day of Newton’s Nook February Release reveals. Let’s go out with a bang and share 2 totally wonderful stamp and die sets today! Beautiful and adorable are totally covered!
Newton’s Rainy Day Trio
When I saw these cute kitties I just saw them singing in the rain and couldn’t help myself…
I started by stamping and coloring the image from Newton’s Rainy Day Trio with my copics, then cut it out with the coordinating dies. I also stamped multiple sets of raindrops and cut those out too. I die cut the largest scalloped rectangle from Frames & Flags out of white, then cut the center out with the rounded rectangle in the same set. Taking that rounded rectangle, I used the music stencil and some Glitter Glitz gel for a tone-on-tone musical wonder in the background. I die cut a flag, stamped my sentiment on it and moved on to assembling everything.
I added foam strips to the back of the frame I created earlier and adhered it to a white card base. I used liquid glue and adhered the stenciled panel inside that and when I started arranging images I realized I wanted a ground for my kitties. So I die cut another rounded rectangle from vellum and cut it off with the land borders die. Hiding liquid glue behind where the kitties would be, I adhered the grass down before popping the kitties up with foam tape. Then I used liquid glue to attach the raindrops and finally foam squares to slip that sentiment banner in place. For finishing touches, I added glossy accents to the raindrops, kitty noses, umbrella accents and coat buttons.
Up next, I just had to watercolor those beautiful daffodils so I started my stamping and heat embossing them in white on Bristol smooth cardstock. Then I used Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers and a water pen to color them in. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out.
I die cut the scalloped square from Frames Squared and taped off the edge before inking up the basketweave stencil with blue ink. I adhered my images with foam squares. For my sentiment I die cut a blue label shape from the same die set and heat embossed it in white. I wanted the background to have a little texture so I cut a yellow A2 size panel and just inked the edges with scattered straw distress oxide ink. The label is adhered to the square with liquid glue and the whole thing is popped up with foam tape.
