Newton’s Nook Designs June Release – Day 4

Hello Everyone,

We reached the final day of the June release reveals at Newton’s Nook Designs, and as always the cutest is saved for last! I am in love with the Woodland critter series, and now our favourite wildlings are going on a picnic!

For my first card I created a forest scene using Bristol Smooth cardstock and Distress Oxide inks. For the grass I used Mowed Lawn, Twisted Citron and a bit of Lucky Clover to add contrast. I cut it with the Land Border dies. I used the same colours for the tree crowns, just more of the dark colours and cut that with a Sky border die.

For the trees I used the Forest scene builder and Antique linen/Walnut stain Distress Oxides.

The sunny background is made with Squeezed Lemonade and I Sponged Wild Honey Distress Oxide ink through the Sunscape stencil. Before removing it I sprayed it with Tsukineko Shimmer Spritz for a subtle sparkle.

I stamped and coloured all images with Copics and cut them ou with their coordinating dies. I popped them up on the scene using 3D foam squares.

I stamped a sentiment from the set in black in between two trees, directly on the background. I also stamped a couple of ants on the grass and made them pop with a black glaze pen. I added some white gel pen highlights and some dots with my clear sparkle pen for more interest.

For my second card I had to use the cute bear holding the watermelon on its own, I think he deserves full attention.

I kept this card very simple, just added some stitching texture to a piece of kraft cardstock using a Reverse Confetti die, cut a strip of green gingham paper where I black heat embossed some ants and a sentiment.

I popped up my favourite bear with 3D foam squares and matted the strip with a green cardstock before adhering it to the card.

A drop of glossy accents on the nose and a black glaze pen on the seeds finished this card off.

  2. Awesome cards! Love the first card with such pretty details to your picnic scene! And your second card is so sweet with the adorable bear! Fabulous coloring too!


  3. Both cards are so fabulous in their own way. The first one is such a wonderful
    and pretty scene. And I love the simplicity of the 2nd card’s design.


  4. Great idea to use the cloud die as the leafy
    area in the trees. The whole scene is
    darling – everybody is getting to chow down.
    The sentiment in the second is cute.
    thanks for sharing


  5. Really cute dimensional cards! Such beautiful coloring! Love the cute woodland animal scene on your first card!
