Oh my goodness, you guys! Check this out....Newton Dreams of New York! Being a New Yorker, you know I just LOOOVE this set! And it has coordinating dies too! Yay!
I wanted to create a 'Big Apple' shaker card, so I used my Scan-n-Cut to cut an apple shape. I cut the inside of the shape out with a PenBlade and used this as the frame for my shaker. I stamped the skyscrapers directly on the acetate with Staz-On ink and then created my night sky by blending Distress Ink and stamping the stars from the Newton Dreams of New York stamp set right onto the night sky. I like the illusion of dimension having the buildings stamped right on the acetate gives. I filled my shaker with sequins from Simon Says Stamp & Pretty Pink Posh, and closed it up with foam tape.
I stamped and die cut several of the skyscrapers and positioned them across the front of my card, being sure to overlap the ones stamped on the shaker so it creates a seamless look....love that! I really like the simple black and white buildings and then the POP of color from the shaker element!
Okay....so I didn't use Newton. I know, right?!? I can't believe it either. But it does show you the versatility of this stamp set....and I'm sure Newton will get a little love soon! ;)
