Hi again! It’s day 3 of release reveals for the Newton’s Nook January release. Today is full of more additions to the ever amazing Heartfelt series that coordinates with the Heart Frames and Banner Trio dies.
Heartfelt Meows and Heartfelt Woofs
I tried to create 2 very different cards for you today that would work great with any of the heartfelt collection, even if you’re not specifically a dog or cat person. I hope you enjoy them both.
First up, let’s have a look at the super adorable Heartfelt Meows shaped card that I created with the Heart Frames dies and Banner Trio dies.
I started by die cutting the scalloped heart from Bristol Smooth cardstock and then stamped and heat embossed the Heartfelt Meows image on it. I used Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers and a water brush pen to watercolor all the images before cutting a larger melon heart to pop it up on.
Next, I stamped a sentiment from the set on a Banner Trio banner and colored the open letters with markers to match the melon heart. I popped it up with foam squares.
To turn this into a card, I die cut another heart the same size as the melon one and scored the top about a 1/2 inch down. Before adhering it to my front panel I stamped another sentiment and colored it with markers too. Then I added tape runner to that small portion above the score lines, adhered the hearts together and creased the fold.
Now, for the Heartfelt Woofs card I took a totally different approach and I think it would be so much fun to try this with different color combos and lots of the Heartfelt series.
I simply chose a bunch of blue cardstock scraps and cut them into 1/4 inch strips. I adhered them to a piece of copy paper to avoid extra bulk and die cut it with the scalloped heart from the Heart Frames die set. I stamped my pups in VersaMark black ink and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder.
Next, I die cut 2 red banners from the Banner Trio dies and heat embossed sentiments in white. Digging through my stash of amazing puppy images I chose these from the Puppy Playtime set. I stamped and colored them with copic markers, cut them out with the coordinating dies and glued the pieces together.
To assemble my card, I splattered black paint on a 4×5.25 inch white panel and popped it up on a white card base with foam tape. Then I popped the heart up the same way and added foam squares to the back of the banners, tucking them under the heart edges.
Last, I added the puppy and his bones with a combo of liquid glue and foam squares. For finishing touches I added glossy accents to his nose and one stripe on the hat, unicorn Stickles to the top of the hat and black glaze pen with white gel pen accents to his eyes.
I hope you’ve enjoyed today’s projects and the reveal of the wonderful new products coming.
