Newton’s Nook Designs May Release – Day 4

Hello Everyone,

We have reached the final day of the May reveals at Newton’s Nook Designs, I hope you enjoy the week so far. We are showcasing the new dog stamp/die set called Walking Woofs. All these products will be available tomorrow, 17/05!

Here is my card:

When I first saw this set it reminded me of a painting. Maybe that pretty hat but I imagined a romantic scene, on a cloudy day our lady walking all her 4 legged friends. The scene in my head was so delicate and soft that it shouted for watercolours.

So I stamped the image and the sentiment on Ranger Distress Watercolour cardstock and used my Daniel Smith sample palettes (available at Simon Says Stamp) to add a soft watercolour look. It was totally stepping out of my comfort zone, but I enjoyed the process so much.

When the panel was dry, I die cut it with the scalloped rectangle die from Frames and flags. I adhered some pretty patterned paper from Doodlebug Designs (French kiss) to a top folding white card base and added the painted panel. Then I cut another patterned paper piece with bold flowers to cover the bottom part and added a thin strip of Peacock cardstock.

It was a hard decision to skip the embellishments, but I took the risk. I admit, I like the end result this way more.

  1. I like the papers you chose. But the stars of the show are the sweet dogs. There is nothing like a loving, sweet, precious dog. Our dog, Mickey Mouse, had to be put to sleep over a year ago, and I really miss him!!!!!!!!!


  2. I like the patterned paper very much – this is a fab layout for the new stamp and die sets – Woof Woof is what I say which is fabulous in dog language! TFS


  3. Love the beautiful watercoloring on your card! Love your use of patterned paper that coordinates with the colors that you used! So pretty!
