Welcome back for another day of releases from Newton’s Nook! Today’s product release is going to help you get a “hop” on your Easter projects!
All new products for this release will be available for purchase on Friday February 19th!
Today’s first card was made using images the new Hoppy Greetings stamp set:
This is one of my favorite ways to create a small scene on a card! I start by creating a stencil using a circle die and masking paper – in this case, I used the die from the Circle Frames Die Set. I then paired it up with the Cloud Stencil to create the sky. Next, I used that same die to cut a circle from green cardstock and then cut that down using the grass die from the Land Borders Die Set. I added a little bit of ink blending at the bottom of the green circle and adhered it over the sky. Now my scene is ready for decoration!
I stamped the bunny image from the Hoppy Greetings set along with a number of eggs and flowers. I colored them using the following Copics:
- W00, W1, W3, R20, R00 for the bunny
- E51, E53, E55, E57 for the sign
- BV02, BV31, BG23, BG11, R20, R00, RV14. RV13, YG17, YG23, YG21 for the eggs, flowers and grass
I finished the bunny image by adding a sentiment from the same set and adding to the card front with dimensional adhesive.
Next up is the sweet little Hare Mail stamp:
Small images like this are fun to use multiple times on a card front and the Slimline Frames and Windows Die Set provides the perfect home for three of them!
I started by blending the background using Tattered Rose and Worn Lipstick distress ink. I also used the Worn Lipstick ink to add a postmark image under the bunny on the left. If you would like the sentiment to be a bit more subtle, you could have done them same there but I chose black this time.
I then stamped and die cut three of the bunny images. I colored each bunny a different color using Copic markers:
- W00, W1, W3
- E55, E53, E51
- C00, C1, C3 (I also used C00 and C1 to add a bit of shading to each of the envelopes)
Finally, I attached each bunny using foam adhesive and did the same with the slimline frame die cut (if you don’t have skinny strips of foam adhesive, just try cutting a few frames and adhering them together with liquid adhesive to add a little dimension).
One other idea I had for this bunny was to fussy cut just the face from the image and use it to peek out from all kinds of places besides the envelope!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
