Newton’s Nook – May Release Day 3

Welcome friends! We’re already to day 3 of the release reveals for Newton’s Nook May release! I hope you’re loving it all and excited for more!!! Today we have more stamps, dies and stencils to share. Yay!

Birdhouse Greetings stamps and dies

Birdhouse Line stencil

Although these stamps and the stencil would go AMAZING together for a fun card, I had immediate ideas that I wanted to try so I have two cards to share with you today.

This first one is so cute and came together really quick because the coloring is all the stencils. I just inked up the different layers of the Birdhouse Line stencil with a blending brush and dye inks. Then I placed the Petite Clouds stencil on the panel and selectively inks clouds in the sky.

Next, I cut some grass using gingham paper in the Spring Blooms paper pad and a fence using the Fence die. I adhered the layers together with liquid glue and used the largest Framework die to cut it all out. Last, I stamped my sentiment in the bottom corner and popped the whole thing up on a white card base with foam tape.

I chose to leave the inside of this card blank so I can choose what occasion I want to use it for later. I love having that flexibility sometimes.

Next, I stamped the images from Birdhouse Greetings and colored them with my copic markers. I made sure to stamp some extra birds and butterflies to fill in my scene. Then I used the coordinating die to cut them out.

For the background I inked a panel with light yellow ink, then placed the Raindrops stencil over top and used a blending brush with light pink ink for those. I cut a scrap of cardstock with the Land Borders die and inked it with green, then layered the grass stencil over top and added a layer of grass in the front to.

I adhered the layers together and used the largest die from Frames & Flags to cut it out. I added it to a white card base with foam tape and then added all my sweet images with foam squares. I was so pleased with the serene look of my card front that I decided it was okay to skip a sentiment on it.

But this time I wanted to have some punny fun and stamped sentiments on the inside, along with a little birdie hanging out.

One note, for finishing touches on the front of the card, I did add black glaze pen to birdie eyes, Touch of Gloss to their beaks and stardust Stickles to butterfly wings.
