Chugging along with the wonderful Newton’s Nook release reveals. Day 2 brings us two new stamp and die sets plus a stencil! They are SO PERFECT together too!!! I had a blast creating today’s cards.
Welcome New Cat stamps and dies
Welcome New Dog stamps and dies
Petite Paw Prints stencil
These new sets are going to come in handy and be so fun to create with! First let’s have a look at the card I created using the Welcome New Cat stamp set.
I had a layout in mind so I stamped out my images, making sure to stamp a couple extra mice, and colored them all with my copic markers. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out and set them aside to get a little inky.
I pulled out the Slimline Frames & Portholes die set, cut the scalloped rectangle from yellow cardstock and the porthole panel from white. I inked up the white panel with the new petite paw prints stencil in a diagonal rainbow using my blending brushes and some dye inks from my stash. Then I inked up the edges of the yellow panel with yellow dye ink and splattered some of the same watered down ink all over for added texture.
To assemble my card, I added the yellow panel to a white slimline card base with foam tape and the rainbow panel to that the same way. This is when I placed the card in my MISTI and stamped the sentiment before adding the images with foam squares and liquid glue.
For finishing touches I added black glaze pen to the kitten and mouse eyes and glossy accents all around the images. For a little extra interest I add white gel pen highlights to some of the images too.
For the Welcome New Dog set, I just had to create a full scene with these images. They are just too cute and I thought it would be extra fun to do it using the new Oval Frames dies.
I stamped my images and colored them with copics, using the coordinating dies to cut them all out. Then I cut a couple of stitched ovals using the new die set and inked them up for sky and grass before cutting the grass edge using the Land Borders dies. I also cut a cute little picket fence and adhered my layers to create my scene. I added the images with a combo of liquid glue and foam squares.
For the background, I inked up a white panel with distress oxide ink in ripe persimmon, carved pumpkin and spiced marmalade. I spritzed it with water and splattered it with white acrylic paint. Once that was dry I spread Thermoweb transfer gel blanco through the new petite paw print stencil and let it dry. While it was drying I heated up my laminator and ran it through with the new midnight blue deco foil flock transfer sheets. Finally, I cut the whole panel with the largest Framework die and moved on to adhering all my layers.
I glued a brown panel to a white card base and popped the paw print panel up with foam tape. Then I added the oval scene with foam tape and die cut a banner from the banner trio die set to stamp my sentiment. This sentiment is a little short so I thought it would be fun to add the paw image along with it instead of the white space or shortening the banner. I colored it with dark blue copics to tie in the flocking and added this with foam squares and liquid glue.
For finishing touches I added white gel pen highlights to the images, black glaze pen to the puppy’s eyes and some glossy accents to the paw print, bone on the bowl and the puppy’s nose too!
