Hello everyone!!! It’s the start of a really fun week! I hope you’re ready because it’s Newton’s Nook release week which means starting today we have reveals through Thursday with the release available for purchase on Friday! We’re kicking things off today with 2 new stamps and coordinating dies, along with a new fabulous stencil!
Gnome Garden Stamps and Dies
Bleeding Heart Stamps and Dies
Petite Clouds Stencil
Phew! That’s a whole lot of goodness for you all up front! Plus I have 2 fun cards to share with you featuring these goodies.
For my card featuring the bleeding heart image, I used texture paste with the new petite clouds stencil on a blue panel. I trimmed a yellow panel to A2 size and also die cut a circle frame from the same yellow. Then I inked up the edges of both with an orange ink for a little texture. I heat embossed the sentiment in black on a vellum strip and wrapped it around the cloud panel. For assembly, I used liquid glue to add the yellow panel to a white card base, then glued the vellum strip around the cloud panel and adhered it down. Last, I popped my image up on the circle and popped that up on the card.
Isn’t this image beautiful?!? I’m not a floral person but I really enjoyed coloring it and when I looked them up to see what colors I should use, found that there are lots of variety which is super fun as well.
Oh my goodness, this adorable Gnome Garden set is just too cute for words! I managed to choose one sweet image from the set, colored him up and used the coordinating dies to cut him, an extra butterfly and ladybug out. Then I inked up the sunscape stencil and used the framework die to cut it out. I also cut some clouds with the sky scene builder set and started assembling everything.
I added a red panel to a white card base and popped the stenciled panel up with foam tape. I used liquid glue to add my clouds to the sky, then foam squares to add my gnome, butterfly and ladybug to the scene. And I’m not even going to fudge that I hadn’t planned a sentiment so I placed my whole card in my MISTI and stamped it at the very end. For finishing touches, I added glossy accents to the mushroom dots, butterflies and ladybug. Then I added a little Wink of Stella glitter brush pen to the clouds in the sky.
