Newton’s Nook Designs January Release – Day 2

Hello Everyone,

Welcome back to Day 2 of the new release reveals of Newton’s Nook Designs. Today we are all in bloom, introducing the beautiful Orchids stamp and die set.

All new products will be available on 21/01/2022.

I started with stamping the Orchids three times on watercolour cardstock. I used Ranger Disress Watercolour cardstock, I love that it is really white and has a textured and rather smooth side. I used my usual black hybrid ink for stamping, it is from The I used Gansai Tambi watercolours to paint the flowers. I hardly ever use real watercolour and I must admit it felt so good to try something out of my comfort zone. When I was done and the paint was dry, I die cut them all with their coordinating dies.

For the background I created a light washed watercolour background with the same palette. I used a wider brush and made the cardstock wet before I added the colours. I made sure it was dry before I die cut it with the scalloped rectangle from Frames and Flags.

I stamped the sentiment with clear embossing ink on a black banner and white heat embossed it. I used the scalloped rectangle die to cut the edge of the banner.

I assembled the card, arranging the three flowers so they look one. As a finishing touch I used tiny clear sequins all around the cluster of flowers.
