Welcome everyone! Today is the first day of release reveals for the Newton’s Nook April Release! This is such a varied release and everything is just so much fun! Today we’re sharing a stamp and die set along with a new stencil too! Let’s take a look.
Cycling Friends stamps and dies
Tree Line Stencil
I have a few cards to share with you today. First let’s look at two clean and simple mini slimline cards I made using the new tree line stencil.
I inked up the stencil on teal cardstock with distress oxide inks to make the layering stand out instead of soaking into the cardstock. Then I added Thermoweb Glitz Glitter Gel for the detail layer on both cards. Isn’t that glitter detail so much fun!?!
I trimmed the panels down to 2.75×5.75 and popped them up on white card bases, cut some grass and adhered it down. Then cut a banner from the Banner Trio set and stamped sentiments from Floral Roundabout on them before popping them up with foam squares.
Won’t this new stencil be gorgeous year round! I can’t wait for all the fall colors!!! Now, I have a card using this stencil again but paired with the new Cycling Friends cuties in a mini scene.
For this card, I inked up the background panel with light peach and pink dye ink for a setting sun type of sky. Then I layered the trees over top with distress oxide inks. I also used distress oxide ink on a scrap of white cardstock to create a ground for my critters. Then I cut the panels out with the largest Frames & Flags die and adhered the layers together.
I stamped and colored the images from Cycling Friends, and used the coordinating dies to cut them out. I used liquid glue to adhere the goodies in the bike basket and popped the whole thing up with foam squares.
Next, I die cut the small banners in the new A7 Frames die set and heat embossed my sentiment in two parts on each banner. I trimmed them down and added them to the scene with foam squares.
I popped the whole panel up on a kraft card base with foam tape and added glossy accents to the images for finishing touches. Then I decided to all some white gel pen detail to the scarves on the critters for added fun.
