Newton's Nook Designs 3 Year Celebration - Freshly Squeezed & Dog Days of Summer



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!
