Newton’s Nook – Birthday Release Day 2

Hey friends! Back for day 2 of release reveals for the Newton’s Nook 9th Birthday Release! Today we’re adding a must-have to the oval card front series. It is so much fun to create with. You’re going to love it!

Birthday Oval stamps (Coordinates with Oval Frames dies)

For today’s card, I just couldn’t resist pulling out one of my very favorite sets – Puppy Playtime – to pair with this fun Birthday Oval set.

Using the paper pad so much this release, because it’s amazing, had me wanting a little variety. So I chose a very different color palette and colored up my images from Birthday Oval and Puppy Playtime and used the coordinating dies to cut everything out. I used liquid glue to adhere the hat to my puppy’s head and set those aside to create my background.

I inked up a piece of white cardstock with distress oxide ink with salvaged patina fading down into nothing toward the bottom. Then I splattered the panel with water, peacock feathers distress oxide ink and white paint for good measure. Sometimes I forget the white paint but I really love the different it makes in the look of the background.

Once the panel was dry, I wrapped some yellow twine around it and tied it in a bow. I added the Birthday Oval with foam tape and then added my puppy with single and double layers of foam squares so it laid nice and flat.

For finishing touches I came in with glossy accents on random places all over the oval and also parts of the puppy too. I added black glaze pen to his eyes and once that was dry I came back in with a white gel pen to add the highlight that got covered up.

  4. Your doggy makes me want to cry. The look on his face, and the way he is sitting reminds me of my sweet Mickey Mouse. I miss him…..ANYWAY, you colored him in such a cute way. I just love this whole card..
