Hello and welcome!
I’m so happy you’ve joined me today and even more excited to be on the Newton’s Nook Designs blog sharing a cute and sweet summer card!
Today I mixed and matched the adorable summer themed Newton’s Perfect Wave stamp set and more love/ San Valentine related Tides of Love stamp set that turned out to be really versatile and just amazing! To start, I die cut on Neenah Solar White paper all the shapes I needed for this project using the coordinating Newton’s Perfect Wave Die and Tides Of Love Die sets. I saved the negative parts of the dies and used them inside my MISTI tool for a perfect alignment while I was making the stamping with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I simply colored all the stamped elements with copic markers adding some fun dotted details.
And here’s the complete list of all the colors used here: COPIC MARKERS cat E0000-E000-E11-E13-E15 plus T1; E40-E42-E43; YR00-YR02-YR30-YR31; R000-R30-R32-R14; V0000-V01-V04; G00-G02-G05-G40-YG41;
The wavy background was added through Waves Stencil. I worked on Watercolor Cardstock from Tim Holtz and mixed together Cracked Pistachio, Peacock Feathers, Mermaid Lagoon Distress inks to create an ombré effect starting from the right bottom corner. I filled with a lighter hand the blank white spaced between the waves using the same shades of Distress inks and the blending brushes that allow to create easily a soft look. A few water droplets added some interest and water feel to the pattern. I assembled all the elements on an extended A2 size (5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″) card base with a bit of dimension and finished with a heat embossed sentiment and few dimensional clear droplets.
That’s all for today! Hope you like this cute card! Thanks so much for stopping by and have a fabulous day!
