Newton’s Nook Designs April Release – Day 2

Hello Everyone,

Welcome to the second day of the April Release week at Newton’s Nook Designs! Today our team is showcasing the Destination Love and Lilac stamp sets which come with coordinating dies.

All new products will be available on 22/04/2022.


I started with stamping the images from the Destination Love stamp set and coloured them with Spectrum Noir Illustrator markers. The exact colours I used: TB4, TB3, TB2, BG7, BG6, BG5, BG2, DR4, DR1, CR6. Then I cut everything out with the coordinating dies.

On a piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock I did a super fast ink blending: I used only Salty Ocean Distress Oxide ink and I blended it from the sides to the middle gradually. I made sure to have more ink on the edges and used a very light hand towards the middle. I added a lot of splatter: water drops, diluted blue ink splatters and also Finetec Silver metallic paint drops. I love how it sparkles in the light!

Then I die cut a stitched white oval and a bigger scalloped one from vellum using the Oval Frames die set. I heat embossed a sentiment with black sparkle embossing powder directly on the vellum oval and assembled the Just married car on that. I used the back of the images to hide the adhesive when I adhered the white oval on the back of the panel.

As a finishing touch I used tiny pearls to embellish the flowers, a clear shimmer pen on the car and glossy accents to emphasize some details.


I stamped the Lilac three times on Bristol Smooth cardstock with Versafine Onyx black ink and clear embossed the images. Then I used my Karin Brush markers to paint them quickly. I love to paint with these markers, the colours are so vibrant and it is so easy to use! I used the coordinating die to cut the flowers out.

I die cut a postage edge rectangle with the Frameworks die set from kraft cardstock . I also die cut a small ticket with the same die set from white cardstock to carry my sentiment, which I stamped in purple.

I created a bouquet from the lilacs and added pink twine to the stems before popping them up with 3D foam squares.

After adding the sentiment, I embellished the card with tiny clear sequins.
