Newton’s Nook Designs June Release – Day 4

Hello Everyone,

It is the last day of the June Release Reveals at Newton’s Nook Designs! We have 2 roundabout sets for you today, all summer themed: BBQ Roundabout and Seashell Roundabout both coordinate perfectly with the Circle Frames and Banner Trio die sets (previously released).

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


I stamped and coloured the image from the BBQ Roundabout stamp set with Spectrum Noir Illustrator markers. The colours used are the following – DR5, DR3, DR1, AP3, AP1, BO4, BO3, BO1, GY2, CT4, CT1, IG10, IG6, DG4, DG3, DG2, AG2, AG1, LG1, BG5, BG2, BG1, EB3, MB3, MB1. I used a Circle Frames die to cut it out.

For th background I chose a super cute paper from the Doodlebug Bar-be-cute pad. I popped up the scalloped circle with 3D foam squares.

I white heat embossed 2 sentimens on black cardstock, one from the BBQ Roundabout set and one from the Mom & Dad stamp set. I cut them out with a stitched banner die from Banner Trio and popped them up with 3D foam squares.

I finished the card with a black glaze pen, I used it on the ants and seeds. I also added glossy accents to some parts of the images so they have a shiny finish.


For my second card I wanted to try something different: I created an alcohol ink background on Glossy cardstock with the following inks: Indigo, Denim, Cobalt, Aquamarine, Laguna, Glacier, Aqua. I used a blending felt pad and blending solution to blend the colours and added drops of Pentart Media Ink too for the shimmer.

When it was dry I die cut it with the scalloped circle die from Circle Frames and white heat embossed the Seashell Roundabout stamp on it.

I added a Blue Violet cardstock strip to a 4,25*4,25 inches square notecard, adhered the circle panel and added a thin muslin ribbon. I clear heat embossed a sentiment on a blue banner (Banner Trio die set) and popped it up with 3D foam squares. I used two clear gems as embellisment.

  1. Your BBQ card with the ant background paper is adorable!! And I love the look of the white embossed shells against the blue!


  2. Love the ant paper that you chose for your BBQ card! The different shades of blue ink that you blended together on the card with the shell roundabout are gorgeous!
