Welcome everyone! Super excited to be starting the release reveals for the Newton’s Nook June release! Get your sunscreen out because we’re ready for summer!!! Let’s take a peek at what’s revealing today.
Summertime paper pad
Palm Tree Line stencil
Beach Bound stamps and dies
Isn’t this an incredible way to kick things off??? I can tell you right now, I’m obsessed with this paper pad and having so much fun with everything else too! I have two cards to share with you so let’s get started.
For my first card, I inked up the new palm tree line stencil with various dye inks and trimmed it into a strip. Then I lined the panel with some strips from the paper pad. I popped this up on an A2 size piece of that fun blue bubble print from the paper pad but I thought it needed something else.
I just adore those flip flops from Flip Flop Life so I stamped and colored those, then used the coordinating dies to cut them out. I thought it would be fun to mount them on a circle cut from another print in the paper pad so I used a circle die from Circle Frames and another from Frames Squared for that and my sentiment and added everything with foam squares.
I finished the card off with glossy accents on the flip flops and tied some pink twine around the top of my card.
You better apply a second layer of sunscreen before we move on. You’re going to get a sunburn. Lol.
For this card, I took all the vehicles from Beach Bound out and created my own patterned paper stamping them in gray on a white panel. Then I picked one – I just love that Bug – stamped and colored it with copics, then used the coordinating die to cut it out. This time I cut 3 1/4 inch strips from various prints in the paper pad for the border under my car. But the background with the other cars was a little distracting.
To remedy that, I took a strip of white cardstock and inked it up with mustard seed distress oxide ink and spritzed it with water. Then, to give it a little interest I layered the Sunscape stencil over the top and inked a little sunshine in the top left with spiced marmalade distress oxide ink. It’s subtle but I love it.
Now, to assemble all my layers, I used liquid glue to add the yellow panel to the top of the car panel. Then I popped my cute blue bug and the strips of paper up with foam squares and strips. Last, I die cut a banner from the Frames & Flags die set and heat embossed a sentiment from Beach Bound on it. I trimmed the top off and slid it under the striped strip, securing it with foam squares.
For finishing touches I added some glossy accents to the wheels and lights on the car and unicorn Stickles to parts of the surf board.
