A Little Kindness Card by Newton's Nook March Guest Designer Eloise Blue

Today we have our first post from our March Guest Designer, Eloise Blue! Eloise has such an adorable card making style and we can't wait to see what she will create for us this month! Scroll down to read about Eloise and to check out her first project below!

Hello everyone, I’m Eloise, I’m 23 years old and I’ve been crafting for almost 5 years. I live in Perth, Australia with my two cats Tiger and Leo. By week I’m a Special Needs Education Assistant and by weekend I craft, make videos and blog. Over the years this hobby has gotten a lot more serious for me and now I’m completely addicted. I love to create cards with scenes, colouring and bright colours!

Hello everyone. Eloise here and today I'm here for my first post as a guest designer for Newton's Nook this month. I'm super excited to be here and to be working with these amazing fun stamps!

For my card today I'm going to be using the Delightful Doxies stamp set to create a simple sky themed card.

To begin my card today I first stamped out the little doggie that’s side on and holding the string in his mouth and then stamped the little balloon included in the set on top of the string too. I used Memento Tuxedo Black ink along with white cardstock as I’m going to be Copic Colouring my images today. I used E53, E55 and E57 for the puppy, YG01, YG23, YG17 for the balloon and collar tag and then R21, R22 and R24 for the heart and collar. I used the darkest to lightest technique since I knew the colours blended well together and also it’s faster.

Once I finished my colouring I went ahead and fussy cut out the images leaving a small white border using some detail cutting scissors. Once it was trimmed out, I find that using scissors makes the image curl a little bit, so to resolve that issue I just run the cut image through my big shot machine between a piece of copy paper and then it turns flat and I’m much happier with how that looks.

Now my image is complete I can work on the background. For my background I decided to go ahead and cut a cloudy border from some masking paper and used Tumbled Glass Distress Ink to ink blend over the sky. So I started at the bottom of the cardstock, blended a small amount just over the top of the die cut. I then removed the mask and moved it up slightly, leaving some white bits before placing my mask on top of my cardstock again. I just repeated this step till the whole background had been coloured.

I then took the ‘a little kindness goes a long way’ sentiment from the same Delightful Doxies stamp set and stamped it in the bottom left hand corner of my cloud panel. I then adhered down my puppy with his balloon with some foam adhesive onto the right side of the panel and that finished up the card for today.

Super simple card design for today, I hope you enjoyed and I’ll be back next Monday with another card.
