Hello, and welcome to the first day of reveals for Newton's Nook Designs July release! We are celebrating 3 Years as well, so get ready - this is an awesome (not to mention HUGE) release! It's going to be a blast!
Today we are sharing cards made with the brand new stamp sets Dog Days of Summer & Freshly Squeezed....so let's get to it!
My first card features Dog Days of Summer. I created my background by taping off the edges and blending yellow, pink & blue inks directly on my card base. To jazz it up a bit, I used a stencil from MFT and sprayed Perfect Pearls Mist to create a subtle, sparkly pattern.
I stamped and colored the dog and his ice cream cone with Copic markers and when I was done, I stamped again with Versamark and heat embossed with black embossing powder. This was easily done since I used my MISTI stamping tool! The embossing made it a lot easier to fussy cut the tiny images out. I adhered the dog and ice cream and stamped and heat embossed the sweet sentiment to finish up this card!
My next card uses the Freshly Squeezed stamp set! I did some more Copic coloring and fussy cutting here. The background was created by stamping some of the words included in the set on a diagonal. I added some patterned paper to the left hand side and then adhered my fussy cut image.
The sentiment was heat embossed with black embossing powder and I added a few hearts from the Happy Little Thoughts die set cut from red paper and colored with a Spectrum Noir glitter pen. I thought the hearts added a little love to the card - this sentiment is perfect for someone going through a rough time!
