Newton's Nook Designs July Release & 2 Year Celebration - Day 1


DIES!   You guys!  
Oh my, I'm so excited!   NND now has DIES!    And how about this cute new Newton set....I just love this one!   Newton on all his pillows and blankets - couldn't be cuter, right?

Newton's Naptime card by Kimberly Rendino for Newton's Nook Designs | double partial die cutting | embossing paste

  I thought I'd really use the new die to its full advantage for this one, so I did a bit of double partial die cutting! Partial die cutting is a really cool technique - just place your die cutting plates so they don't completely cover up the die and then run it through your die cutting machine - you're left with a section of die still attached to your paper.  That's what I did here with Newton - his blankets are still attached to the panel.   After I did that, I placed a circle die so that it cut just the top part of the circle....then all I had to do was use a craft knife to connect the circle and the blanket.

The background is Distress Ink and the stars are stenciled on with metallic silver embossing paste.   I mounted the panel to some glittery white paper with foam tape so it pops up just a bit.  So now Newton is sitting by the moon, dreaming sweet dreams!

  35. Wow!!! Even though I've had some traumatic cat run-in's during my youth, this card was impossible not to love!! I really liked how the bright colors pair with that gorgeous rich starry sky in the background. And I thought it was so clever of you to tie this sleep-related image into the sentiment of dreams coming true. Clever, clever! I must say that the whimsicality of Newton's soft "bed" reminded me of the princess and the pea. Wonder if Newton has any royalty in him to feel a pea underneath all those layers? In any event, he looks fantastic! Thanks for sharing your talents and the inspiration partial die-cutting ideas with us for this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!
