Newton’s Nook – Taco Tuesday

Hi there crafty friends! I’m always happy to be back on the Newton’s Nook blog sharing adorable and fun inspiration. Today we’re pretending it’s Tuesday and living our best taco life!

I had a general layout idea in mind so I started by taking an A2 piece of white cardstock and inking up the edges with spiced marmalade distress oxide ink and spritzing it generously with water. I blotted it dry and set it aside. Then, I took a second piece of white cardstock and used the mini taco image in the Newton Loves Tacos stamp set to create a fun background of little yellow tacos. Then I die cut the panel with the second-to-largest die in the Framework die set.

Then, I stamped and colored my sweet taco cat with copic markers before using the coordinating die to cut him out. Using the image as a guide, I stamped and heat embossed my sentiment on the taco panel so it was shiny and stood out a little. I added foam squares to the kitty and popped him up on the panel above that.

For assembly, I added the inked panel to a white card base with liquid glue and then popped the scalloped panel up on that with foam tape.

For finishing touches, I added red clay hearts to the design for fun. These come from the Sweethearts clay mix from the Twiddler’s Nook shop. Then I added touch of gloss to the kitty’s nose and parts of the taco.

Products used:
Newton Loves Tacos stamps and dies
Framework dies
Pink & Main embossing ink, powder and anti-static brush
P&M touch of gloss
P&M foam tape
Distress Oxide Ink – spiced marmalade
Twiddler’s Nook Sweethearts embellishments

I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!
