Who’s ready for a whole week of amazing Newton’s Nook reveals??? I totally am! This release is my favorite so far…EVER!!!! It’s packed full of such amazing summer goodies. I know you’re going to love it all! Today we have three new things to share with you so let’s get started!
Newton’s 4th of July
OH! MY CUTENESS!!! Am I right?!? Yeah, I know I’m right! I have two really fun cards to share with you today using all of these products.
For this awesome 4th of July card, I started by stamping and coloring images from Newton’s 4th of July and then used the coordinating dies to cut them out. Then I die cut a scalloped rectangle from Frames & Flags dies and taped it to the new Fireworks stencil. I carefully smeared glitz gel in brilliant blue and red velvet in various spots trying for a multicolored fireworks look. I set the panel aside to dry while I did a little more die cutting of the ground and fence.
I left the fence white and ink blended the grass panel with twisted citron and mowed lawn distress oxide inks. Then I spritzed it with water and flicked some watered down mowed lawn ink too.
For assembly, I cut down a piece of red cardstock to A2 size and adhered it to a white card base. Then I used foam tape to pop up the fireworks panel and liquid glue to adhere the ground and fence. Last, I added foam squares to the back of my images and popped them in place.
Finally, I die cut a stitched flag from Frames & Flags and stamped my sentiment. I used copics to do simple coloring on the open letters, trimmed the flag down and adhered it to my scene with foam squares.
For finishing touches, I added glossy accents to various spots on my images like the stars and dots and, of course, noses. Then I added little dots of bright gold Nuvo Crystal Drops to the center of Newton’s sparklers on the left image.
I really love creating 4th of July crafts of all kinds so this card brought me a bit of extra joy. I can’t wait to make new decorations for my house for the 4th this year too!
Next, we have a card featuring the super silly and awesome Buns Out stamps and die.
I stamped and colored this adorable image with my copic markers and used the coordinating die to cut it out. Next, I die cut the Fancy Edges Tag from yellow and orange cardstocks. Then I inked up the yellow one with the Sunscape stencil. I die cut the hole reinforcer from black and strung the tags together with baker’s twine.
Next, I die cut the rounded rectangle from Frames & Flags dies from blue cardstock and inked up the edges with a slightly darker blue ink for some depth. Then for my background panel, I inked up an orange piece of cardstock with spiced marmalade distress oxide and spritzed it with water. Then I came back and flicked some watered down black acrylic paint on the panel too.
Last, I die cut a stitched flag from Frames & Flags and stamped my sentiment on the right side of it. Then I moved on to assembling my card layers.
I started by adhered the orange panel to a white card base with liquid glue. Then I popped the blue panel up with foam tape. I adhered the tags with liquid glue and then the banner to that the same way. Finally, I popped up my cheeseburger (Oh my cuteness!) with foam squares.
Isn’t this just too cute?!? Cracks me up every time!
