Thinking of You Card by July Guest Designer Ildi Imrefalvi

Thinking of You

Thinking of You Card by July Guest Designer Ildi Imrefalvi | Garden Mice, Little Lilies and Peony Blooms Stamp Sets by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #handmade
I really love stamp sets that remind me of my childhood storybooks and Garden Mice is definitely that type. It combines the cutest critters with floral elements which makes it a perfect scene building set.   

Thinking of You Card by July Guest Designer Ildi Imrefalvi | Garden Mice, Little Lilies and Peony Blooms Stamp Sets by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #handmade


To start my card I Copic colored a bunch of images from this hilarious set and added elements from other two: Peony Blooms and Little Lilies. I usually colour and fussy cut more than I need, I found this very helpful while assembling the cards. 

For the background I trimmed a piece of watercolor paper to approx 5x5 inch and sprayed it with Oxide sprays. Watercolor cardstock has an uneven surface and special texture which I thought to be fun for my garden scene.

After white heat embossing the sentiment onto the middle of the background I started to build and arch shaped scene from the colored elements. I used foam dots of various thickness to make the dimensions more interesting. 

I planned to have splatter of white acrylic paint on all over the background, but I totally forgot about it, so I decided to put small dots with my gel pen here and there as a finishing touch.

Thank you for stopping by
Hugs,
Ildi

Newton's Nook Designs 6 YEAR Celebration Blog Hop!

Newton’s Nook Designs is so excited to be celebrating our SIX Year Anniversary
- WOW - That's six whole years of getting our 
paws inky!

I remember how excited I was when our first four sets came in the mail over six years ago! Now we have over XX products in our shop! It's been an Incredible journey so far- filled with happiness, stress, lots of excitement and very little sleep! Here are a few behind the scenes photos from this last year of Jeff and I and our little helpers, Newton and Hobbes!
We want to take a minute to say THANK YOU to all our fans, designers and customers who helped make it happen! We are so happy to be here and we can't wait to see what the next year brings!

To celebrate, we have a big blog hop today! Make sure to scroll down to the end of the post to see the whole list and leave them some sweet comments for a chance to win prizes (details at the end of this post)

Every stop on the hop is sharing cards made with our new products and I made a card to share today too! For my card I colored the image of Newton surfing from our new Newton's Perfect Wave Stamp Set. Isn't that kitty adorable in his bathing suit with fish on it!? I colored the image with copics and added fun little stripes to the kitty.


For the background I created layers of clouds using our new Clouds Stencil. Then I added a die cut wave across the bottom using our Sea Borders Die Set. I cut this whole panel out using the scalloped edge from our Framework Die Set. For the background I created a fun pattern of orange leaves using our Tropical Leaves Stencil. Last, I added the sentiment from the Newton's Perfect Wave Stamp Set, stamping it onto a circle that I cut out using our Frames Squared Die Set. I added some orange distress ink to the circle to make it look like a sun!
