Newton’s Nook – Hello

Welcome crafty friends! I have needed a few just because cards lately to send to a few specific people and thought this fun design would be one to recreate with lots of different products so I wanted to share it with you. Today’s version is all Newton’s Nook and I just love how it turned out.

I started by inking up a panel with dried marigold distress oxide ink, then I took the Houdstooth stencil and inked Lawn Fawn guava ink through that with a blending brush. Next, I die cut some leaves from the Flower Trio die set and gave them some detail with a copic marker.

I took a scrap of white cardstock and cut it to 1.5×4.25 inches and adhered it at the bottom of my stenciled panel. I arranged the leaves how I wanted them and picked them up with a long piece of post-it tape. I turned them over and added foam squares to the back, removed the release paper and used the post-it tape to line them back up over the seam of the white and stenciled panels. Worked like a charm!

I stamped the typewrite from My Type and colored it with my copic markers, then I stamped a sentiment from the set on the paper and used the coordinating die to cut it out. I added foam squares to the back and popped it up on the leaves.

For finishing touches I glued a scattering of peachy keen jelly drop hearts from Trinity Stamps and added glossy accents to the typewriter buttons.

Isn’t this just so fun! Create a textured background, find something you want to create your border with, choose a focal image and you’re done. I have a few more of these in the works that I’ll be sure to pop in and share as well!
