Newton's Nook Designs January Release




Hello everyone, welcome to Day 2 of #Newton'sNookDesigns January Release.  Today I'm featuring a stamp set that really excites me.  It's called Love & Chocolate and has a coordinating die set.  So immediately I was drawn to my absolute favorite, chocolate covered strawberries!  Years ago, my family and I would attend the Strawberry Festival in Cedarburg, WI every June.  There's a confectionery on Main St. that would hand dip these HUGE strawberries and display them right in the front window.  Oh they were so good!!!  I'm a long way from Wisconsin and these are definitely a summer treat.  So for now, I'll enjoy coloring them!!

I did a lot of masking to create this scene.  I stamped the little strawberries right on my post it pad, then fussy cut a bunch of them to cover up the lower layers as I stamped my way to the top of the pile.  I then copic colored all the berries and used glossy accents on the chocolate..trust me, in person, they almost look real!  I die cut and colored the serving plate to look like Jadeite.  The red gingham paper by GinaK served as the perfect bottom layer around my scene!  My zig zag rectangle is by SugarPea Designs.  I also inked the background and splattered with a bit of white acrylic paint.  

I hope you've enjoyed my creation, thanks for stopping!  Read below for your chance to win!

  35. Oh AJ I have a similar love affair with chocolate dipped strawberries! My friends mother used to make them for sale at a local speciality shop when they were in season and I can remember eating them until I felt sick 😂😂😂. Your card is a work of art! I know it must have been a lot of work, especially all the masking, but it is so worth the end result - simply divine! Thank you for showing me yet another reason why I must have this stamp set! It is my absolute favorite set of the whole release (and that's saying something because there's a lot to love in this release!).
