It is my favourite part of the month, when we start revealing the new release at Newton’s Nook Designs. I hope you are all ready for Spring! Today we are showcasing the adorable Hop to Spring stamp and die set. There are also two fantastic new stencils coming, called Raindrops and Petite Flowers (I will show this in action soon!) All new products will be available on 21st February.
Here is my card for today:
As always I started with stamping and colouring the sweet bunny in the waering can on white cardstock and coloured it with Copic markers. I used the coordinating die to cut it out and I cut a few extra layers of simple white cardstock too, which I adhered under the coloured one until it was as thick as a chipboard.
I stamped the sentiment on a small white tag which I die cut with the Tag times two die set, and attached it to the watering can with twine. It would look so cute as a tag for a bunch of flowers on its own!
For the background I used Nuvo shimmer powders and when it was dry I applied Thermoweb Glitz Glitter gel in Brilliant Blue colour through the Raindrops stencil. Looks gorgeous and dimensional! Lovely!
When it was dry I die cut it with the rounded rectangle from Frames and Flags, cut also some grass with the Land border dies and some clouds with the Sky border dies. The latter I distressed a bit with Blueprint Sketch Distress Oxide ink to match the background more.
After assembling the scene, I gave it a grey mat and adhered it to a kraft scalloped rectangle. It was then mounted on a white top folding notecard. A bit of clear shimmer on the can and a drop of glossy accent on the nose and stripe finished off this cute spring card.
