Newton's Nook Designs April Release - Day 1


Hi everyone and welcome to day 1 of the April reveals at Newton's Nook Designs.  All week we'll be showing you new product that will be in the shop this coming Friday, April 20th. 

Today we're showing off a new stamp/die set called "Newton's Graduation" along with this GREAT die set called "Essential Alphabet"!  Somebody's going to win Newton’s Graduation, so keep scrolling to find out how!  

Now onto my cards!


For my first card, I stamped out my image and copic colored Newton.  I had practiced cutting out this amazing new Essential Alphabet die on some black cardstock and it sort of just struck me that the negative might make a fun background, like a chalkboard.  I took a strip of patterned paper from my stash that had the bookshelves and glued it under.  I then popped Newton and the sentiment up.  Btw, that sentiment reminds me of Pinky and the Brain..anyone remember that cartoon with the mice that were going to take over the world???


For my second card I used the other main Newton image..I love that globe!  I used an embossing folder on the background, cut 2 of the banners out from the NND Frames and Flas die set and stamped the congratulations on the top banner and die cut the 2018 from the Essential Alphabet dies and glued on the bottom white banner.  I then perched Newton on the banners to finish the card!
