Newton’s Nook Designs January Release – Day 2

Hello Everyone,

It is Day 2 of the January Release reveals at Newton’s Nook Designs and today is all about coffee 😀 I must admit I am addicted to coffee, cannot start the day without 1 or rather 2. But look at all these cups:

For my project I stamped the image with Versamark ink on Bristol Smooth cardstock and heat embossed it with black detailed embossing powder. I usually shy away from using black powders, I rather stamp with Versafine Onyx black ink and use clear embossing powder, but I wanted to be brave this time 🙂 I used an anti-static powder bag generously before stamping and it made the embossing perfect.

Then I used my Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers to add colour. I wanted a very colourful card, which can cheer anyone up on a dull winter day. I used a waterbrush to give the watercolour feel.

When it was all dry, I die cut it with the scalloped rectangle from the Frames and Flags die set. I also cut a banner with another die from the set from black cardstock and white heat embossed a sentiment on it. Then I placed it on the painted panel to see where it would go and die cut the edge with the scalloped die.

I gave the panel a black mat and adhered it to a striped background paper. Surprise but I did not use any embellishments, the colours of this cheerful scenes were enough to make it complete.

  1. I like how colorful and distinct each kitty and each cup is. The background layers enhance the card as well as the sentiment on black. We do want the sentiment to be seen well. Great job.

  2. I really love this card! Of course the stamp is amazing but your colours highlight it so much. You have chosen a great stripped paper underneath !😁

  3. Your coloring is beautiful with the Zigs. I love your card. I know a LOT of people that need their caffeine in the morning. My mama used to drink a whole pot by herself.


  4. I usually clear emboss (even over colored ink) as well but your card looks fantastic with the black emboss & really allows your beautiful coloring to shine
