Welcome everyone! I am super excited to say that I’m guest designing over at Newton’s Nook Designs. They have some super adorable images and I love seeing what they will be doing each month. PLUS on top of amazing stamps, they have dies and stencils too!! Be sure to check out their site!
For my first project, I’m creating a card with Newton’s Easter Basket stamp set. Isn’t Newton adorable? And don’t forget that cute little rabbit tucked in by the eggs. I decided for my card to do a little masking. I have a process video of my card down below as well that you can view here on my blog or on my Youtube channel.
I’m starting off my taking a piece of 4″ x 5 1/4″ piece of Neenah white cardstock and stamping my image using My Favorite Things Extreme Black which is a copic friendly ink. I like to use my Misti tool just in case it doesn’t stamp completely for me the first time, I can easily stamp it again for perfect alignment. Next, I created a mask for my image using some Inkadinkado Masking Paper and attached that to my stamped image to protect it.
Next, I’m going to add some painters tape to section off where I want to ink blend. I purposely lined it up so part of the image would be above the ink. I think this helps draw the attention that its masked off and Newton won’t get lost in the blending. I’m going to apply some Shaded Lilac distress oxide to the bottom and Mermaid Lagoon distress oxide to the top portion. To add a little more interest, I’m going to use some of the smaller images from this stamp set and randomly stamp them in my blended area. I’ll use Simon Says Stamp Hot Mama on the Shaded Lilac and Catherine Pooler’s Something Borrowed onto the Mermaid Lagoon.
I’ll be honest, at this point I thought I overdid because there is a lot to the image itself but I kept going! I colored my image with copic markers adding a little shading here and there to show some depth and dimension. I also grounded my image by coloring on top of the Shaded Lilac ink.
I finished off the card by stamping the sentiment on to the panel and adding craft foam with double sided adhesive to attach to my A2 size cardbase. I am really glad I kept going with this card as I love how it all came together! This is such a great image and so much more on this stamp set!
