Welcome back to the March Release reveals at Newton’s Nook Designs! On day 2 we are focusing on 2 new and adorable small sets: Rainy Day Doxy stamp/die set and for Newton fans the Newton’s Umbrella stamp/die set.
All new supplies will be available on 24/03/2023.
For my first card I started with stamping the images from the Newton’s Umbrella stamp set and coloured them with Copic markers. The colours I used are the following:
- cat: E44, E43, E42, E40, E01
- umbrella: B29, B26, B24, B23, B21, V09, V17, V15, RV17, RV55, RV52
I used the coordinating dies to cut them all out. While I was die cutting, I cut a few white clouds with the Sky Scene Builder die set and a piece of watercolour cardstock using the Frames and Flags die set to create a rainy background. For this I used the Raindrops stencil with some Distress Mica Spray: Shiny Bauble and Winter Frost. It literally took me 20 seconds to create this pretty rainy panel! I am addicted to sprays these days!
I chose a pretty patterned paper from the new Spring Blooms paper pad and cut it down with the scalloped rectangle die from Frames and Flags. I also die cut a black circle with Circle Frames and also a Speech Bubble so I could white heat emboss the sentiments on them.
I assembled the card using 3D foam squares under the kitty so he pops off with his cute umbrella. As a finishing touch I used a clear shimmer pen on the umbrella to match the sparkly raindrops.
As always I started with stamping and colouring the images from the Rainy Day Doxie stamp set using Copic markers. The colours used are:
- dog: E49, E47, E57, E55, YG09, YG06, YG11
- umbrella: Y38, Y17, Y15, Y13, Y11
After die cutting all images with the coordinating dies I also cut some elements to build a garden scene: Fence from woodgrain cardstock, grass with the Land Border dies, cloudy background with a die from Framework using pattered paper from Springtime paper pad. I also cut a green postage edge mat with my favourite die from Framework and assembled the scene.
I stamped the sentiment on a white stitched banner which I cut with the Frames and Flags die set.
I popped up the dog with 3D foam squares and used some Raining Rhinestones from Trinity Stamps as embellishment. I emphasized the eye and nose of the dog with a black glaze pen and used glossy accents on the handle of the umbrella and the raincoat buttons.
