Newton’s Nook – Cat-purr-ccino

Hello everyone. I’m so happy to be on the Newton’s Nook blog again. This time I’ve been in the mood for coffee themed cuteness so I pulled out Newton’s Mug and decided to play around with it.

I started by stamping the main image from Newton’s Mug. Then I used masking paper to mask off everything except the main part of the mug. Then I stamped the Floral Roundabout on that to create a gorgeous floral coffee mug. Wouldn’t you just love to have this in your cupboard?!? I would! Next, I used my copic markers to color everything in before cutting it out with the coordinating die.

I used the smallest circle die in the Frames Squared set for my sentiment and then the cool label shape from iridescent vellum for a base under my Newton image. Next, I pulled out the Frames & Flags dies to cut the rounded rectangle from a piece of paper in the Spring Blooms paper pad and a white scalloped rectangle to go under that.

Assembling my layers was simple. I worked top down. Foam squares attach the sentiment and Newton to the vellum label. Then I knew where I could hide tape runner to attach that to the floral panel. I tied peach twine around the bottom part of that and tied it in a bow before adding foam tape to the back, avoiding the twine area so it lays flat. That is attached to the white scalloped rectangle with the foam tape and the whole thing is glued to a white card base with liquid glue.

For finishing touches I used Touch of Gloss on the flower centers and Newton’s nose. Then I glued one pink clay heart under the sentiment from the Twiddler’s Nook sweethearts mix.

I would love to know what you think about the masking on the mug and if you’ve ever tried anything like that before. Share your ideas below!
