Hello and welcome to Day 3 of the Newton’s Nook Designs January release! Thanks so much for joining me today!
All the new January products will be available for purchase on Friday, January 18th at Newton’s Nook Designs online store and other craft retailers!
There would be no perfect January release without Valentine’s Day theme! Right?! That’s why I’m super excited to share with you the adorable owls from Love Owl-ways stamp set! In case you’re interested, this set comes with the coordinating dies!
Giveaway alert!! NND is giving a new Love Owl-ways stamp sets away a lucky winner so make sure you read all the way to the bottom of this post to see how to win!
And here’s my first project featuring the cutie owl from Love Owl-ways stamp set with the balloons! You know that I’m a great fan of the balloons for all the occasions!!!
Since my choice in terms of color media was on watercolor markers, I went for my favorite Strathmore Bristol paper, VersaFine Onyx black ink for stamping since it’s waterproof and a small water brush from Pentel. I first made die cutting using Love Owl-ways and Playful Pandas Die Sets and then stamped the coordinating images from Love Owl-ways and Playful Pandas stamp sets.
As always I’m leaving you the colors I used on this project: TOMBOW n.026, n.703, n.723, n.761, n.815, n.835, n.873, n.905, n.977.
Assembling all the elements, I give a little bit of texture to the card base, embossing a white embossing paste on top through Tumbling Hearts stencil. Next I popped the colored stamps on a foam tape and have a little happy accident on adding a shiny coat of Nuvo Crystal Clear Drops that cracked, but gave me a super fun texture! I really like how it turned out and wonder if any of you had the same experience with Nuvo Drops? Finally, a heat embossed sentiment from the same Love Owl-ways stamp set on a piece of a black cardstock finished this project.
I just cannot stop playing more with the beautiful owls and here’s my second project!
I started with the same materials that I used on a previous card except of Sending Hugs stamp and die sets used to create a bunch of envelopes.
I’m leaving you all the exact number of watercolor markers used here as well: TOMBOW n.025, n.090, n.703, n.723, n.761, n.815, n.835, n.873, n.905, n.969.
I decided to keep everything clean and simple. A regular A2 size card base was masked and inked with a light lilac ink. Next I added a sentiment towards the top right corner by simply stamping it from the same Love Owl-ways stamp set with the same VersaFine Onyx Black ink I used for the images for a perfect match. Finally I popped all the watercolored elements on a foam tape for a fun dimensional look and finished with a few crystal clear sequins.
