Newton’s Nook – Time to Celebrate

I’m sure it’s time to celebrate something, right?!? We love to celebrate everything in our house. It’s fun and creates great excuses for important things like cupcakes! Haha! Today I’m over on the Newton’s Nook blog with a fun shaker card featuring the newly release Newton’s Cupcake stamps and dies along with the cupcakes layering stencil too!

My whole card started by inking up the stencil layers with fun pink and red colors and die cut the panel with the scalloped rectangle in Frames & Flags. Then I let my card design come together from that. I stamped and colored Newton’s Cupcake with copic markers but couldn’t decide on a color or design for the cupcake. That’s when I had an idea to paper piece it like those fun cupcake wrappers my mom always used when I was growing up!

Next, I moved on to the shaker pouch. I die cut two circles from the Circle Frames dies – one red and one acetate. Then I took the scalloped circle that is the next size down and cut it from the red circle, creating my frame and window. I used liquid glue to adhere the acetate to the frame and lined the back with foam tape. I sprinkled sequins on the stenciled panel and sealed up my shaker.

Next, I added foam squares to the back of Newton and popped him in the center of the window. I used liquid glue to adhere the cute cherry to the top of the cupcake and moved on to my sentiment. I chose one from the Birthday Roundabout set and stamped it on a die cut banner from the Banner Trio dies. I love how this one has emboss lines to fold it for a more 3D look. I added a combo of foam squares and liquid glue to adhere it to the bottom of the shaker frame.

Next, I found a piece of cardstock that was close to the blue in the cupcake wrapper and trimmed it to A2 size. I flicked black acrylic paint all over it for a little texture. Once that was dry I glued it to a white card base and popped my panel on it with some foam tape.

For finishing touches, I added glossy accents to the cherry and Newton’s nose.

One thing I found out later – a real duh moment – is that the sentiments in Newton’s Cupcake are all sized to stamp inside the cupcake if you would like to! How cool is that?!? I’m looking forward to trying it out for a different and fun look!
