Newton’s Nook Designs June Release – Day 3

Hello Everyone,

It is the third day of the June Release Reveals at Newton’s Nook Designs! We have the sweetest littl critters for you today, favouring both cat and dog lovers! Kitten Beach and Beach Barks both come with coordinating dies.

All new products will be available on Friday, 18/06/2021!


I stamped and coloured all the kitties from the Kitten Beach set with Spectrum Noir Illustrator markers. The colours used are the following – cats: BG9, BG7, BG5, BG2, BG1, FS3, castle: EB4, EB3, MB3, MB1, shell: TN8, AP3, AP1, sand: MB4, MB3, MB1, bucket: DG4, DG3, DG2, CT4, CT1, laddle: BT9, BT7, BT5, BT1, crab & star: DR5, DR3, DR1, chair: EB4, EB3, MB3, MB1, BT9, BT7, BT5, BT1. I used the coordinating die to cut them out.

I die cut a slimline scalloped rectangle with the Slimline Frames and Portholes die set and blended it a bit with Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink for the sky. Then I used the Land and Sea border dies with the partial die cutting technique to cut the waves and sand. I blended them with Antique Linen, Blueprint Sketch and Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide inks, added water and diluted ink splatters for a textured look.

After assembling the scene on a kraft slimline cardbase I stamped two sentiments in black and popped up the images with 3D foam squares. I used a black glaze pen on the eyes and glossy accents to emphasize some details.


As always I started with stamping and colouring the dogs from the Beach Barks set with Spectrum Noir Illustrator markers. The colours used are the following – big dog: TN9, EB5, EB4, EB3, TN3, TN1, LG4, LG3, LG1, BP3, BP2, BP1, TB5, TB3, TB1, small dog: TN3, TN2, TN1, LG4, LG3, LG1, TB5, TB3, TB1, CT3. I used the coordinating die to cut them out.

For the background I took a piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock and used the Hills & Grass stencil to create the sandy beach with Antique Linen Distress Oxide. Then I masked off approximately in the middle with purple tape and blended the sea with Peacock Feather Distress Oxide, the sky with Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink.

Then I used the Retro Palms stencil to create the trees: I used purple tape to cover the not used trees, in this way I could create the trees one by one. I used Ground Espresso for the trunk and Mowed Lawn for the leaves.

When it was done, I stamped the sentiment in black and popped up the dogs with 3D foam squares. I added glossy accents to the sunglasses, flowers, noses and the lifesaver too. I finished the card with a Marwy Snow marker to create the foam. I added dots with it and heated it with my heat tool until it puffed up. So fun!

  1. Beautiful cards! I really love how soft and subtle your cards are. They make me feel like I’m at the beach. Beautiful coloring and backgrounds!


  2. Newton looks like he is having so much fun in the sun with each element – lovely background – and the pups are stunning in front of that background as well! TFS


  3. Your coloring of the cute kittens & puppies at the beach is fabulous! Love your beach backgrounds & all the glossy accents that you added. Purrfect Summer themed cards!

  4. I love the kitties playing at the beach! I’m going to have to try making more slimline cards. The puff at the edge of the water on the pups’ card is a nice touch too.
