Oh my WOW! It’s already the final day of release reveals for the Newton’s Nook June release! I hope you are loving each item and have your checklist prepared because it’s all available starting TOMORROW!!!
But first, let’s reveal our final stamp and die set and get on to some fun inspiration.
I will be honest, this may be the final day of reveals but I was so in love with this image and the new paper pad, that this was the first card I created. I had so much fun and love how bright it is.
I stamped and colored the image first, pulling the green choice from the paper pad. I used the coordinating dies to cut it out. While flipping through the paper pad I remembered the sun and clouds pattern which I thought would be fun background to the kite in the sky. So I used a die from Circle Frames to cut it out and also trimmed the stripes down to A2 size. The patterns together were too busy so I cut the scalloped circle from yellow cardstock to break them up a bit.
While toying with different ideas for my sentiment I thought they might fit being stamped directly on the clouds…but it’s a bit squishy and I didn’t love it. So I switched gears, keeping the clouds because that was a happy accident that I loved! Instead, I stamped and heat embossed each part of the phrase and trimmed them out with my scissors. That bold black sentiment looks so cool with all the bright color.
To assemble everything, I used liquid glue to add the sun and cloud paper to the yellow circle, along with the die cut clouds. Then I added foam squares to Newton and attached him. I flipped the whole thing over and added foam tape and squares to it all (some of Newton is double layer so he lays flat), removed the release paper and attached it to the striped panel. Last, I added the sentiment pieces with foam squares to the clouds.
I kept finishing touches very simple but just adding a little glossy accents to Newton’s nose and the bows on the kite tail.
I hope you have enjoyed all the inspiration this week from the team and are ready to order some new, fun goodies tomorrow! But first…
