Welcome to the second day of the June Release Reveals at Newton’s Nook Designs! We continue the summer fun with another two adorable sets: Summer Moments and another cute mini called Newton’s Seashell. There is a super fun new stencil set coming too, Retro Sun & Palms.
All new products will be available on Friday, 18/06/2021!
For my first card I stamped and coloured the girl in the chair from Summer Moments with Spectrum Noir Illustrator markers. The colours used are the following – chair: EB4, EB3, EB1, MB1, BG2, BG1, BT9, BT7, BT5, BT1; girl: FS8, FS7, BP3, BP2, BP1, CT3, CT1 and BT1. I used the coordinating die to cut her out.
For the background I used the Seashells stencil with Ranger Distress Crackle paste, set it aside to dry and added Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide ink afterwards with a blending brush. I also sprinkled it with water and dabbed it off with a paper towel after 30 sec. I love the textured look I achieved this way.
To set the scene I die cut a small rounded rectangle from white cardstock using the Frames and Flags die set. Then I created waves with Savaged Patina and Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide ink using the Waves and Splashes stencil. For the Sky I used the Clouds stencil with Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink. I also die cut a small piece of another rounded rectangle with a Land border die, I blended Antique Linen and Walnut Stain Distress Oxide inks and added a lot of splatters: brown, black and white. This is how I love to create the perfect sandy beach.
After assembling the card I white heat embossed a sentiment on an aqua banner (Frames and Flags die set) and popped it up with 3D foam squares. I finished the card with a bit of glossy accents on the hat and the mini umbrella.
For my second card I followed the same process: I stamped and coloured Newton’s Seashell with Spectrum Noir Illustrator markers. The colours used are the following – cat: BG9, BG7, BG5, BG1, FS3, shell: BP3, BP2, BP1, CT3, CT1. I used the coordinating die to cut it out.
For the Beachy scene I created the background first, on a scalloped rectangle (Frames and Flags) I used the Retro Sun stencil with Picked Raspberry, Spiced Marmelade and Mustard Seed Distress Oxide inks. Then I used the Retro Palms with a black ink for the trees. I love that layering stencils have the engraved gridlines which help with the perfect placement.
I die cut a scalloped rectangle from blue cardstock and another one from kraft. Then I used the Land border die and also a Sea Border die to create the sea and sand. I used Peacock Feathers Distress ink on the waves and Walnut Stain on the sand for a bit of shading. I added some splatters like on the previous card for a textured sandy look.
I adhered a pink patterned paper from the Whimsy Stamps Summer Breeze paper pad to a white top folding notecard and adhered the focal panel. I stamped the sentiment in black and embellished the sand with some stickers from Jolee’s Boutique. I also added glossy accents to the seashell.
