It is the last day of the November Release reveals at Newton’s Nook Designs and we saved the cutest for last. Snow Angel Newton and Snow Angel Puppy are the cutest critter sets for winter and Roll with it is another funny sentiment one.
All new products will be available on Thursday 18/11!
CARD 1 and 2
I started with stamping the cat and dog from both Snow Angel sets and coloured them with Spectrum Noir Illustrator markers. I used the following colours: CG3, CG2, CG1, IB3, IB2, IB1, TB5, TB3, TB2, TN4, TN2, TN1, FS7, FS6, EB7, EB6, EB5, EB3, EB1, RB1. I cut the images out with scissors this time and to hide the imperfections, I used a black Memento marker on the edges.
For the background I die cut the postage stamp rectangle die from Frameworks from white cardstock and a slightly smaller rectangle from light blue. I cut another white rectangle just a dash smaller than the blue one to get a layered look. From the latter I cut out the snowbanks using a Land border die.
I stamped the outline of the images with light blue ink on the snowbanks. I did not use any masking, just tried to avoid the cat and dog figures with the mini ink pad. It was easy. I stamped aroud it the little snowflakes.
I did some simple ink blending on the blue panels with Blueprint Sketch and Salty Ocean Distress Oxide inks.I white heat embossed the sentiments and assembled the cards. I used action wobblers to secure the cat and the dog, it makes the cards interactive and so playful! I used kraft card bases to make the focal panels stand out.
As a finishing touch I used Stickles on the edge of the snowbanks and the snow angels.I also covered the scarves and caps with clear shimmer and emphasized the noses with a drop of glossy accents.
On a white scalloped circle I stamped the Snowflakes Roundabout stamp set with All That Jazz Catherine Pooler ink and as it stays wet a little longer than other inks, I could easily heat emboss it with Altenew Translucent Pearl embossing powder.
I made an ink blended background using the same ink, spritzed it with water and dried it before applying White Glitz Glitter Gel on it through the Snowfall stencil.
When it was all dry I assembled the card: I chopped off part of the circle, adhered the banners and popped them up on the frosty background.
