I am so excited to share with you my projects for Day 1 of the January Release at Newton’s Nook Designs! Planner addicts will go crazy about today’s reveals i am sure:
Even though these sets were designed for planners, i would like to show you how you can use these cute stamps on cards.
Newton makes plans
My first project shows one sketch for different occasions. The first card i actually made for myself as by May i really want to lose weight. I need to motivate myself to start going to the gym 🙂 I stamped and coloured the 2 excercising kitties from the Newton makes plans stamp set using Copic markers and used the coordinating dies to cut them out.
I also die cut the phrase “you can do it!” using the Essential alphabet set from heavy weight white cardstock. I used the Frames and flags die set to cut a stitched rounded rectangle from Audrey Blue cardstock (Simon Says Stamp) and adhered the die cut letters and the kitties.
I cut a strip of light green cardstock and a white rectangle mat for the focal panel. I adhered it all to a pretty patterned paper (Lawn Fawn).
My second card is done in a similar way, just horizontal and it follows a birthday theme. I changed up the colours a bit and used celebrating kitties from the new planner set. Aren’t they the cutest ever?
I embellished both cards with some glitter sprinkles from Doodlebug designs.
It’s a plan
My second project has also a birthday theme, but with more masculine colours.
I die cut the same rounded stitched rectangle die from white and from blue violet cardstocks (Simon Says Stamp). On the white one I stamped the checklist and filled with words from the planner set. I used Simon Says Stamp coloured inks: Mint candy, Slate and Blue Violet.
On the bottom I stamped 2 kitties fitting the movie theme and quickly coloured them with Copics.
I added a die cut sentiment on the top of the stamped panel using the Holiday Greetings die set. I stacked 3 layers together for a dimensional look. In the end i decided to stamp 2 little flags around it using Blue Violet ink. then I assembled the card on a matching patterned paper and adhered it to a white top folding card base.
On all my cards I used a bit of clear shimmer and glossy accents to emphasize some details.
