I’m super excited we’re already to day 3 of the Newton’s Nook release reveals! Yesterday we hit all you kitten lovers and today we round things off with puppies!!! Let’s jump in!
These guys are just too cute! So cute, that I had to make a slimline card and fit multiple of them on it! And I love all those fabulous sentiments too! They’re punny and perfect!
This time I started my card with a layout in mind so I did the messy stuff that requires drying time first. I took the Slimline Masking Squares stencil and inked it up with cracked pistachio distress oxide ink. I splattered it with water, then I lined up the frame die from Slimline Frames and Windows and cut it out. I saved the frame from another card and took the squares from the windows. I taped the squares to the back of the new Petite Clouds stencil and spread Thermoweb Transfer Gel Blanco on them all. I removed the stencil and set them aside to dry.
I stamped and colored the sweet puppies from Puppy Friends with my copic markers. Then I used the coordinating dies to cut them out. I knew I wanted to pop them up so I also added foam squares and then set them aside. Next, I die cut the scalloped panel from Slimline Frames and Portholes and inked it up with abandoned coral distress oxide and splattered it with water and flicked it with watered down ink too. This gives great texture!
Now that the transfer gel was dry, I ran the squares through my laminator with Thermoweb iridescent decofoil. Aren’t those clouds soooo super awesome?!? I am in love with them! I glued them down on the scalloped panel with liquid glue and popped my puppies in place. For the sentiment, I die cut the smallest shape from the Framework die set and heat embossed a sentiment on it. It ls popped up with foam squares just like the puppies.
Last, I popped the scalloped panel up on a white card base with foam tape and moved on to simple finishing touches. I added glossy accents to puppy noses and eyes, dots on the bandana, tag on the collar and a little something on all their critters too!
