Monday, April 8, 2019

Hello, lovelies!
It is time for the Newton's Nook Designs April Release!
All the new products will be available for purchase this Friday the 12th in the Newton's Nook Designs Shop!
So for day 1, we have a few new goodies to reveal ;-)
Ready to see!?

This super adorable piggie set is called Oink 🐽
I know, what a genius name!!!

Are you seeing the theme here!?
The Fence Die is a must-have for those who love to build scenery cards!

I was very very very excited to see the Speech Bubble Die Set πŸ’™
I absolutely LOVE to use speech bubbles, it is such a fun way to add your sentiments!

And then, we have another new stencilπŸ’›
This one is called Hardwood, I LOVE it 😍

Okay, here are my cards...;-)

Newton's Nook Designs Oink Set - Naki Rager

There is a special spot for pigs in my heart πŸ’™ 
My hubby and I had a pot bellied pig named Memphys.
So you can imagine my reaction when I first saw this set!

Is it just me, or do you like animals' butts as much as I do!? {LOL}
Piggie butts are absolutely adorable, so this image immediately drew my attention!
It's so cute that I stamped 3 of themπŸ’› I even gave them a heart on their already cute butts😝

Jen always creates adorable sentiments to go with her adorable critters and this one was no different! After trying several options, heat embossing a bunch of Squeals in a big speech bubble seemed juuuust right!

So these cute piglets are mounted on wobblers!
(I am going to post my little video on IG πŸ˜‰)
When it comes to making interactive cards, I apparently like to make it more complicated than it really is, and I just wanted to show you how I did this one... I cut slits to slide the wobblers in, and made circle opening for the springs. (It took me waaay too long...GEEZ!!!)

Before making all those cuts for the wobblers, I sponged the panel with Salty Ocean Distress Oxide Ink to create the sky. On another piece, I sponged Twisted Citron and Lucky Clover Distress oxide Ink then die cut it using the Land Borders Die Set to create the grass, which was popped on with foam tape to cover up the slits.

My second card is nothing complicated {LOL}

This adorable piglet made this pretty pink cake for someone special to wish them a "Hap-PIG" birthday! How stinkin' cute is that!!? πŸ’› My oinker was stamped and watercolored on watercolor paper then die cut using the coordinating die set. The sentiment was heat embossed with copper EP on vellum then die cut using the Speech Bubble Die. I added some shimmer to the candles and plate with red gold starry watercolor to kind of match the copper EP and star sequins. Also some Nuvo Crystal Drops to the flames.

This awesome background was created using the new Harwood Stencil right on the front of the base card.
Doesn't it make one cool background!? LOVE πŸ’™
