Are you ready for another week of amazing releases from Newton’s Nook Designs??? Just say yes because you are going to LOVE what we have to show this week! First up Newton himself is making an appearance and he seems to have the luck of the Irish! Newton’s Pot of Gold is being featured along with the Land Borders die set.
This sweet little stamp set is perfect for your St. Patrick’s Day fun but I love that the sentiments will be ones you can turn to again and again. I started by coloring my image with Copic Markers (colors listed below) and while I was coloring, I had some inspiration. How about using sequins as gold?! Yes, they are totally perfect with the scale of the image and I could not even be more excited about how this turned out. So how did I get the sequins on there? It was actually easier than I thought it would be. I put a ‘blob’ (yep, official crafting term) of Ranger Multi Medium Matte Glue on a scrap of paper and then using a toothpick end, applied the glue where I wanted it to be. Then just added the sequin on top. I put down one layer in the placement of the gold on the stamp image and once dry, added some more on top. This glue dries pretty quickly and most importantly, it dries with a matte finish.
I needed just the right layer for this fun image to go on, so I created a little interest using the Land Borders Die. I cut a piece of Green Apple Card Stock (SSS) with the border die, then laid it on some white card stock and cut again with a stitched rectangle. The sentiment is really one that I’m happy to add to my repertoire (being a
hoarder collector of sentiments). Now here is the best part….
