Newton’s Nook – Happiness is Coffee and a Good Book

Hey friends! I’m over on the Newton’s Nook blog today with a fall color themed card for your fellow coffee and book lovers! This Sips & Stories set is so me that I have to pull it out to play from time to time just because.

I started by stamping the image from Sips & Stories and colored it with my copic markers. Then I cut it out with the coordinating die and started playing around with my background. I inked up a green piece of cardstock with the Mugs stencil and die cut it with the largest Framework dies. Then I cut a couple of tags and a topper from the Fancy Edges Tag dies and inked them up with the Houndstooth stencil.

I added foam tape to the back of the mugs panel and adhered it to a white card base. Then I adhered my tags and topper together and threaded some ribbon through the top. These are adhered directly to the mugs panel with liquid glue.

I chose a sentiment from the Sips & Stories set and die cut a banner from the Frames & Flags set to match the size I needed. I achieved this by cutting the whole banner, laying my stamp on the die, realigning the die smaller and just cutting one side off. Then I added foam squares to the sentiment and image and popped them in place.

For finishing touches, I added glossy accents to bits on the pillows, the girl’s mug and Newton’s nose. Then I came in with a scattering of white clay hearts from Twiddler’s Nook Sweethearts mix.

I’m super excited to share this card with the recipient and hope they love it as much as I do!
