Newton’s Nook Designs April Release – Day 3

Hello Everyone,

We are halfway through the April Release week at Newton’s Nook Designs but worry not, we have something fun for today too: Dad’s BBQ is a very versatile stamp set which comes with coordinating dies. So get ready for the grilling season with those masculine cards!

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

For my card I first created a background by stamping all the little stamps in grey on a piece of white cardstock. It looks like patterned paper and you can use any colourful ink for this design.

Then I stamped the rest of the images on alcohol ink friendly cardstock and coloured them with Spectrum Noir Illustrator markers. The exact colours I used are: BG9, BG7, BG5, BG1, BO4, BO2 CT3, TN8, TN7, TN5, CR7, CR5, CR2, GB10, GB8, GB5. Then I cut everything out with the coordinating dies.

I die cut a stitched oval from blue cardstock using the Oval Frames dies and distressed the edges with Salvaged Patina Distress Oxide ink. I stamped a sentiment on the bottom of the oval and adhered the barbecue above it.

I white heat embossed another sentiment on a thin black banner (A7 Frames and Banners die set) and popped it up above the barbecue. I added the whole front panel to a teal mat and embellished the card with orange twine. As a finishing touch I added white gel pen dots and used a clear shimmer pen on the flames.
