Newton’s Nook Designs February Release – Day 4

Hello Everyone,

Today is the last day of the February Release reveals at Newton’s Nook Designs, all new products will be available tomorrow (15/02). We have 2 new mini sets debuting today, Spring pile up and Puppy Pals. Who can resist?


For my card I played with the background first: I wanted a very cheerful and colourful flower background. The new Bold Blooms stencil is absolutely fabulous. I used Distress Oxide inks directly on a top folding white notecard and a mini dauber to be able to add colours separately to each flower. Removing the stencil is always the fun part, I really like how it turned out!

Then I stamped and coloured the stacked animals using Copic markers. I cut them out with the coordinating die. I love that the die set has an extra Happy Easter sentiment too (I used it on my card for Day 2).

I took a strip of kraft cardstock, stamped the sentiment with Mowed Lawn Distress Oxide ink and adhered a tiny bit of grassy border (Land border dies) on the bottom before gluing the coloured image. I matted it with Guava cardstock (Lawn Fawn) and adhered to the card base.

A bit of glossy accents on the eggs, noses and the beak of the chicken plus the usual black glaze pen on the eyes of the lamb finished off this cheerful card.


For my second card I went in totally different colour direction: red-blue and black&white. It is so indifferent this way, perfect for both genders. I coloured the cute puppies with Copic markers and after die cutting them with the coordinating dies I adhered them to a white tag (Fancy Edges Tag die set).

While I was at die cutting I cut another tag from dark red cardstock and also an embellishing piece for the top of the tag from blue cardstock. The reinforcer is again red to match the twine i used.

The sentiment I stamped in black on the bottom of the tag and added the little heart above the heads of the puppies. I popped up the tag with 3D foam tape on a checked background paper which was cut to cover the front of an A2 sized card. I did not add any embellishments to this card, only a bit of glossy accents to the noses.
