We’re just chugging along to the second day of Newton’s Nook June Release reveals and today is just a packed full of fun as yesterday was. I hope you’re ready!
Retro Sun & Palms Stencil
Summer Moments stamps and dies
Today’s products are so amazing and were a blast to create with. There are so many ways to use them all, it’s wonderful! I have two more cards to share with you featuring all these goodies!
I couldn’t wait to give this new Retro Sun & Palms stencil a try so let’s look at that card first, shall we?!?
I started this card by inking up the sun portion of the new Retro Sun & Palms stencil with dye inks. Then I smeared black glitz gel through the palms portion and set it aside to dry.
Next, I stamped and colored images from Summer Moments with copic markers and used the coordinating dies to cut them out. Once my stenciled panel was dry, I trimmed it down to 4×5.5 inches and added foam tape to the back and popped it on an orange card base. Then I added foam squares to the back of my images and placed them down too. Last, I placed my card in my MISTI and stamped a sentiment in the upper left sky.
For finishing touches on this glitzy card, I added some glossy accent’s to the girl’s hat and unicorn Stickles to the seashells.
My family immediately told me that I just created myself on a card the moment they looked at it. I have to admit…it’s true. This would absolutely be me every day if I could!
Do you just love the little mini stamp sets? I don’t know why but I’m always drawn to them and just fell in love with Newton’s Seashell the same as all the others. I loved creating this card!
To start I stamped and colored the images with my copic markers and used the coordinating dies to cut them out. Then I switched gears to get inky messy!
I inked up a white panel with distress oxides in picked raspberry, abandoned coral and spiced marmalade. I taped the seashell stencil to it and spread iridescent glitz gel from Thermoweb over the whole thing. Then I set that panel aside and picked up my waves stencil.
This time I die cut a white circle and ink blended waves with a teal ink. I also stamped my sentiment on this panel. Next, I die cut the largest of the circle frames and started to assemble my card.
I used liquid glue to adhere my stenciled panel to a white card base. Then I also used liquid glue to adhere my blue circle. I used foam tape to add the waves circle and foam squares to add my images.
For finishing touches I wrapped some twine around the left side of my card and tied it in a bow. I just love the rough texture this gives. It makes me think of a tiki hut on the beach. Finally, I added glossy accents to the seashell, Newton’s Nose and the water drops by the sentiment.
