Newton’s Nook Designs Birthday Release – Day 2

Hello Everyone,

It is Day 2 of the Newton’s Nook Designs Birthday Release, and the Design Team is featuring the new Birthday Oval stamp set, which coordinates perfectly with the previously released Oval Frames die set.

All new products will be available on Friday, 15/07.

I hardly ever make shaker cards but I want to change that so I designed a fun birthday shaker card for today. First I stamped and coloured the Birthday Oval image with Spectrum noir Triblend markers in rainbow order: Dark Red Shades, Dark Red Blend, Orange Blend, Gold Yellow Blend, Citrus Blend, Dull Green Blend, Citrus Green Blend, Blue Turquoise Blend, Blue Turquoise Shades, True Blue Blend, True Blue Shades, Lavender Blend, Bright Pink Shades, Magenta Blend. I also used some lighter markers: CT05, CG05, BT1, BO05, DR05. I stamped the sentiment in the middle of the panel in black and cut the panel with a scalloped oval.

I used the Oval Frames die set to create a frame. I used Purple Tape from Thermoweb to hold 2 dies together, it helps me to even the space between the two. Then I used Distress Oxide inks for a rainbow ink blending trying to follow the colours I used for the image itself: Villainous Potion, Blueprint Sketch, Peacock Feathers, Mowed Lawn, Mustard Seed, Spiced Marmalade, Candied Apple and Picked Raspberry.

I adhered a piece of acetate on the back and used 3D foam tape to ensure the height for the tiny star sequins and confetti to shake freely. I will share some shaker card tips on my Instagram.

For the background I used a fun patterned paper from the new Birthday Party paper pad, which I matted with a vivid blue cardstock to give it a frame.

  1. Wonderful rainbow of colors and you’re a star shaking (Yes pun intended in a good way) it up.

  2. Hi, Zsofia –
    What an absolutely BEAUTIFUL card! I love that it’s a shaker but even if it were not, the colors just POP! (Like balloons, ha ha, ha).
