All week the NND Design Team will be sharing inspiration using some of their favorite products from the retiring list! Check out what I created today and don’t forget to check the NND Blog each day this week for more fun inspiration!
Hedgehog Hollow is one of my favourite sets among the retiring one. It is also because both my kids were in the Hedgehog group in KG, so these cuties are close to my heart.
I started with stamping the images coloured them with alcohol markers. Then I used the Hedgehog Hollow Die Set to cut them out.
To set the scene I used the Frames Squared Die Set to create a scallop edged square from Bristol Smooth cardstock and masked off the scallop part before ink blending Salty ocean Distress ink with a big blending brush. I added grass using the Land Borders Die Set along the bottom edge.
To make the scene complete I added the sun and clouds using the Sky Scene Builders Die Set. The sentiment perfectly fits under the clouds, so it was easy to incorporate it in the scene.
I adhered the panel to a top folding square kraft notecard (4.25×4.25 inches) and finished it off with yellow twine.
Of course I had to add clear shimmer to the sun and glossy accents to the ladybugs, the nose of the hedgies and the decoration on the cup.
For my second card I decided to feature a set I have never used before: Wedding Frills. It has beautiful lacy images, perfect for weddings!
I started with embossing the pretty medallion image with rose gold embossing powder and added the “happily ever after” sentiment in the center. As I did not have the coordinating die I fussy cut the image but I really need to get the dies to make my life easier 🙂
For the background I embossed the lacy floral stamp from the same set in white 2 times and sponged Picked Raspberry and Spun Sugar Distress inks over it. I also added Picked raspberry ink and rose gold paint splatters for the texture. I used a stitched rectangle die to cut it down and matted it with dark pink cardstock.
I popped up the focal panel with 3D foam squares and added some gold jewels to the background.
I hope you enjoyed today’s inspiration and will pop in again soon for more. Meanwhile don’t forget to check out the Retiring Products Category at Newton’s Nook Designs to see what is going away and grab your favorites before they are gone for good!
