Newton’s Nook – April Release Day 2

Hi friends! This is day 2 of the Newton’s Nook April Release reveal week. Today we have two stamp and coordinating die sets to share with you and I just love them both! Must haves for your stash, for sure!

Destination Love stamps and dies

Lilacs stamps and dies

I’m not a floral person most of the time but I love this new lilac image and really enjoyed coloring it.

For this card, I colored the images in the set and used the coordinating dies to cut them out. Then I set them aside to work on my background…aka, making a fabulous crafty mess. I inked up a panel with distress oxide ink in salty ocean and tumbled glass. Then spritzed it with water and flicked watered down salty ocean ink on the panel. Once it was dry, I spread Thermoweb transfer gel blanco through the Cloudy Sky stencil and let it dry.

While that was drying, I die cut a fence from white cardstock and inked up a panel with distress oxide in mowed lawn and twisted citron to cut some grass from.

Once the sky was dry, I ran it through the laminator with white latte deco foil flock for some adorable fuzzy clouds! Then I cut all the layers with the largest Frames & Flags die and adhered the layers together with foam tape.

For the sentiment, I cut a small banner from the A7 Frames die set and popped it up with foam squares too. Then for finishing touches I added glossy accents to the flower centers on the lilac and the body of the butterfly. I adhered the panel to a yellow card base for a little extra splash of color too.

Now, for that adorable Destination Love set, I just had to make a sweet wedding card. Although there are sentiments for lots of love occasions to choose from.

This time I inked up the Cloudy Sky stencil with light teal ink on a white panel and cut it from the largest Framework die. Then I cut the largest scalloped heart from kraft cardstock and inked it up with the Tree Rings stencil.

I stamped and colored images from Destination Love with my copic markers. Then, I cut them out with the coordinating dies and adhered the different elements to the car. I added foam squares to the back and played with final arrangement. until I liked it.

With this placement of things I thought it was perfect to heat emboss the sentiment directly to the heart. So I did that and then blued it down to the sky background. I added the images and then popped the panel up on some melon cardstock with foam tape. I thought this cardstock coordinated well with the color of the car.

For finishing touches I added glossy accents to all of the hearts and the hat band, then I added unicorn Stickles to the veil.
