Newton’s Nook Designs February Release – Day 1

Hello Everyone,

I am thrilled to announce that today is the first day of Newton’s Nook Designs February Release reveals! We have a lot of cute Spring themed stamps, dies and stencils for you, so stick with me for the whole week. Today our team is showcasing the Spring Roundabout stamp set which coordinated perfectly with the previously launched Circle Frames and Banner Trio dies. We also have a layering stencil set called Bunny Tails and a versatile classic Basketweave stencil too.

All products will be available on Friday, 19/02.


I love the circle cardfront stamps and I am so happy for the Spring Roundabout edition! I simply stamped it on alcohol frienly white cardstock and coloured the small images with Copic markers. It is totally relaxing! I used the scalloped circle from Circle Frames to cut it out and popped it up with 3D foam squares on a pretty patterned paper which I cut down to be slightly smaller than an A2 sized card front.

The sentiment I stamped in black on a rounded pink banner which I cut with a die from the Banner Trio die set. I backed it with a green banner slightly off, so it looks like a green shadow. It adds a bit of interest to this simple but cheerful card.

As a finishing touch I added glossy accents to some of the details and covered the clouds and Easter eggs with a clear shimmer pen. I added some pink twine to the top and my card is all finished!


When I first saw the Bunny Tails layering stencils I immediately imagined these bunnies in pastel rainbow colours. It is very easy with a bit of purple tape masking: I laid the Bunny stencil on Bristol Smooth cardstock and masked around the first bunny using the tape, then applied Distress Oxide ink with a blending brush. Then I moved on to the next bunny, masked around it and added the second colour. I use a different brush for each colour family so the colours do not blend and I dont have to clean them all the time. The colours used are: Squeezed Lemonade, Spun Sugar, Shaded Lilac, Tumbled Glass and Peeled Paint.

When it was all done I dried the ink with my heat tool so I can heat emboos the next layer. I used the Tail stencils with a small Versamark ink cube directly over it. After removing the stencil I poured Lawn Fawn Textured White embossing powder over it and heated it with my heat tool. I love the raised fluffy look I got!

I cut the panel down with the postage stamp die from Frameworks and white heat embossed 2 sentiments from the Spring Roundabout stamp set on blue stitched banners. I used the Banner Trio dies to cut the banners. I popped them up with 3D foam squares and mounted the whole panel on a kraft card base.

  1. I love that bunny stencil set and the card you made with it is just adorable! The bright green background of your first card makes me happy. Both cards are fabulous!!


  2. Your cards are so bright that they scream spring! I can’t believe how much work it was to individually colour the bunnies in the stencil, but the end result was worth it. Thanks for sharing.


  3. Welcome Spring – look forward to Spring since we have about 6 inches of snow today – hehe – what cheerful work here – I do love the bunnies so much and those amazing colors!
