Newton's Nook Guest Design - Newton's Antics

Hey folks!

I'm super duper happy to be guest designing for the Newton's Nook Blog this month! Today's post is one of four I will share and I can't wait to share them all!

If you're interested in any of the products I've used, I have links (some affiliate links) throughout and at the end of the post. Click here to read my full disclosure policy.

One of my favorite things about Newton is that he makes for a great scene. Whether you take any Newton Stamp Set and use it as is or pair him with other fabulous images, you've got yourself a story to tell.


For my card today, I paired up several stamp sets. I started with some images from the Garden Starter and Flower Garden Stamp Sets. I knew that I would be doing quite a bit if masking so I stamped those on Inkadinkado Stamping Mask Paper and cut those out first.

Before I started stamping any of the images on my Neenah White Cardstock panel, I used a T- Ruler and lightly traced a rectangle on the front with a pencil. This will be my faux frame. I'm also going to use this as a guide so I know where to stamp my images.

When stamping scenes like this, it's alway important to stamp the images that are going to be in the front or foreground first. With this card, I not only needed to keep in mind what images I wanted in front, but also which ones I wanted to go outside the faux frame and the ones I wanted to stay inside the frame. For those that need to stay in the frame, I simply blocked off the outer edge of the frame with more masking paper.


The mischievous feline I chose to go with those big beautiful blooms is from the Newton's Antics Stamp Set. I LOVE how he looks like he's ready to pounce!

When I had everything stamped where I wanted it, I colored it all in with Copic's. You can see my color choices in the thumbnail links below. I adore big, bold color folks. It's go big or go home in my crafty world. Plus, I really wanted the whole scene to jump off the page.


Using a Copic Multiliner, I went over the faux frame again and added shading with my grey Copic's. The idea is to make it look like it's another layer to the card.

There's no need for embellies on this card peeps. However, to finish off my panel, I used Clear Wink Stella on the highlights of the images and Ranger Glossy Accents on the center of all of the flowers and called it a day.

That's it! Easy peasy.

As always, I hope you enjoyed my card today and thanks so much for stopping by to see me!

Until next time!
