Newton's Nook Designs and Xyron Collaboration!



This week Newton's Nook Designs and Xyron are partnering for a very awesome inspiration week! Each day there is fresh inspiration using Newton's Nook Designs products with Xyron adhesives on the NND blog and on the Xyron facebook page!

Hello everyone!  I started with the NND Winston's Lake House stamp and die set and die cut and Copic colored the images I wanted to use.  




I inked up my background using Mowed Lawn and Twisted Citron distress inks on the bottom and Tumbled Glass and Chipped Sapphire on top for the night sky. I inked in some cloud shapes using a stencil and once dry, I added some sparkle using Nuvo mousse in silver and the Starfield Stencil by NND.


I cut 2 different waves from the Ocean Borders Die Set by NND and inked them up with the same blue colors in my night sky, only much lighter.  I laid down strips of tape using the Xyron Mega Runner Tape Gun on the back to adhere them to my circle that I had die cut and inked up with Squeezed Lemonade and Wild Honey.  


After the waves were glued down, I used my scissors to cut around the circle so the wave border would fall perfectly within the circle..creating the moon behind them.  Using my tape gun, I adhered my moon and waves to my inked background, then glued it all down on my card base.

Lastly, I stamped the sentiment in the moon using Night of Navy ink by SU.  Then I placed and glued down Newton, lily pads and cattails around the water.  Thank you so much for joining me today, keep reading..there are prizes!!

I wanted to give you a review of the Xyron Mega Runner as this was my first experience using it. I was really impressed by how balanced the gun was in my hand and the tape itself laid down perfectly on my project. No doubt I'll be keeping this tape gun handy in my work space.

I'm normally a liquid glue user, so I was also excited to try the Xyron Adhesive Eraser Cube (pictured above).  It's awful when glue ends up where it's not supposed to and this seems to happen to me often.  This little eraser does the trick!  Even with stubborn glue, it lifts off easily..such a wonderful little tool!  **As a sidenote, I was given these products to work with for this collaboration, but the opinions I've written here are my own.
