I can’t believe the Newton’s Nook June Release reveals are coming to a close today. I hope you love today’s reveals as much as the rest of the week and are super excited for release day tomorrow! We have two new sets to add to your roundabout collection today and they are both wonderful!
I really love how these products work so well on their own, with the circle frames dies and the sentiments fit perfectly in the banner trio dies too! It’s a perfect little set giving you tons of ways to play!
I made today’s cards on completely different days and both cards ended up being shakers. It made me giggle when I realized it later on. Aren’t they so fun though?!?
For the BBQ Roundabout card, I pre-die cut the scalloped circle from circle frames and then stamped the image on it. I find it easier to line up my image this way but you could do it the other way around too. Once it was stamped, I colored the whole thing with my copic markers. Then I die cut 2 more scalloped circles – one from acetate and another from red cardstock. With the red one I came back and die cut the next size down stitched circle from the center, leaving me with a frame. I adhered the frame to the acetate and then added foam tape around the edge to create me shaker mechanism. I sprinkled some embellishments on the colored panel and sealed it up with the shaker window.
Moving on to my background, I inked up a white panel with salty ocean and tumbled glass distress oxide inks. Then I layered the petite clouds stencil on top and used a white pigment ink to add those. I removed the stencil and flicked watered down mermaid lagoon distress oxide and white ink all over the panel. While that was drying I die cut a banner from the Banner Trio dies and stamped a sentiment in green ink on it. I folded the banner tails in and glued them down. Then I added foam squares and adhered it to my shaker circle.
When my stenciled panel was dry, I adhered it to a white card base and then adhered my shaker circle to that. This card cracks me up. I love the BBQ theme and the punny sentiment is just perfect!
Now for a little twist on the roundabout idea…turning a circle into a rectangle. What?!?
For this card, I stamped my seashell roundabout and colored it with my copic markers. Then I die cut the reverse scalloped rectangle from the Framework die set and trimmed the colored panel to fit it. I cut a piece of acetate and adhered the frame to it, then I added a double-layer of foam tape to the back, sprinkled some embellishments on the colored panel and sealed it up.
Then I did a little ink smooshing with teal inks to create a background panel. While that was drying I decided to play off the colors I used on the seashells and cut an orange rectangle to separate the frame from the ink smooshed background. Next, I die cut a rounded banner from the Banner Trio set from the same orange cardstock and heat embossed a sentiment on it. I trimmed off one end and glued it under the edge of the shaker frame.
Finally, I stamped and colored Newton’s Seashell from the day 1 reveals and then used the coordinating die to cut him out.
For assembly, I created a teal card base and used tape runner to adhere my ink smooshes panel to it. Then I added the shaker mechanism the same way and finally popped Newton in place with a combination of liquid glue and foam squares so he lays flat.
Finishing things off, I added a little glossy accents to Newton’s nose and the inside of the seashell he’s holding.
