Hello Crafty friends,
We are halfway through the June release reveals at Newton’s Nook Designs and still there is so much cuteness we need to show you! Today is all about Newton, our favourite naughty kitty, with 2 stamp/die sets:
Here is my card for the Newton Hangs out set:
I really wanted to create a naughty scene, where poor kitty is in trouble. So I placed the tree on the river bank and added a lot of birds teasing the kitty.
To create the scene I used the land border dies to cut the grass and the river bank from coloured cardstock and I cut the river with the sea border dies. I also cut the crown of the tree with a sky border die.
I assembled the scene on a stitched blue square panel and ran it all through again with the same die to get the stitching details consistently everywhere. I also white heat embossed the mini clouds from the Newton Hangs out stamp set on vellum and adhered them to the card with dots of liquid glue.
The sentiment I white heat embossed on a black banner (Frames an Flags die set) and adhered it to the card sticking out from the scene for more interest. As a finishing touch I added glossy accents to Newton’s collar and the bird beaks, emphasized the birds’ eyes with a black glaze pen and added a bit o sparkle with a clear shimmer pen to the clouds and waves.
My second card is a scene one too, featuring the Newton’s picnic set.
I love this image so much, I coloured it with Copic markers again and cut it out with the coordinating dies along with a lot of ants.
I adhered a red gingham patterned paper on a grassy border and then on a light blue panel. I ran this through my die cutting machine with the 2 biggest dies from the Frames and flags set, so I got a frame and an inner piece.
I stamped the sentiment in black, mounted the basket with 3D foam squares and adhered all the little bugs around.
I stamped another sentiment on a small white stitched circle and added it to the side of the frame which is popped up with 3D foam squares too for more dimension.
A bit of sparkle on the wings, glossy accents here and there and a black glaze pen on the ants and seeds made this card super cute.
