Hello and welcome to Day 2 of the Newton’s Nook Designs May Release!
I knew it was going to happen one day and finally Newton is making his great adventure in Italy. Woo-Hoo!!!
This new and absolutely adorable stamp set is called NEWTON DREAMS OF ITALY and it comes along with the coordinating dies. No need to tell you that I’m IN LOVE with it!!! It has a few fantastic Italian sentiments and it’s great for any paper crafting hobby! Besides the cards, you can create scrapbook layouts maybe recording your vacations in Italy, tags, planner spreads, meal plans, customize treat bags!
Giveaway alert!! NND is giving this stamp set away to one lucky winner so make sure you read all the way to the bottom of this post to see how to win!
I used the small images and the sentiments from NEWTON DREAMS OF ITALY set and stamped them randomly on a piece of a watercolor paper with a waterproof ink. I also stamped aside the cute kitty along with the wine glass and the oil bottle so that I could die-cut them using the coordinating dies and make my watercoloring at once on all the elements I needed for this card.
I decided to use the color combo that reminds me the colors of Italy: red and green – the colors of the national flag; light blue – the sky, the sea and the soccer (the favorite national sport) and finally a bit of yellow like a sunny weather. Assembling the card I popped up on a foam tape both the watercolor panel and the cute kitty and added a simple heat embossed sentiment.
My second card is an interactive slider one. I played with Newton in gondola (Venetian boat) and thought it would be fun to make him swim across the Grand Canal towards Rialto Bridge.
So I prepared a more deep blue panels ink blending Salty Ocean Distress ink and giving them a wave shape with the negative part of NND Sky Borders die set; and a lighter one – for the background using Tumbled Glass Distress ink.
Once the stamps from NEWTON DREAMS OF ITALY set were watercolored and die-cut with the coordinating dies, I added a wavy slider channel to emulate the movement of the boat, simply stamped the Italian “hello” sentiment and popped up a few die-cut clouds from NND Winston Takes Flight die set to complete the scene.
