Welcome back for the last day of the March Release from Newton’s Nook Designs. For our final reveal I have what you are sure to see as a “work horse” stamp set…a wonderful sentiment set called Birthday Essentials.
So I have a confession to make. My name is Jennifer and I’m a sentiment hoarder. I love sentiment sets. I “collect” sentiment sets. Having just the right ones for inside and outside the card is simply a quest so I hold on to them even as I let images go now and then. So when a set that is all about birthdays comes along, you can bet that I’m doing a happy dance. Another truth (because, hey it is just among friends)…I never seem to have enough masculine cards. Perhaps it is because Kitty Kate and I are outnumbered. Perhaps it is my obsession with cute images and all flowers. But somehow, when it comes time to reach for a card for man, I don’t have the right one. So I committed to making one (and I’ll be making a few more just like it). I felt like I need a cool background so I used this fun Magic Stamp by Clearsnap. It allows you to make your own background and just stamp. I was playing with it on my trip to Kansas and the incredible Jen Shults (yes, I did just name drop) suggested I press it into some concrete on the sidewalk. And I got this texture. Cool!! I inked it up with Distress Oxide Ink and just stamped onto watercolor paper, then spritzed with a little water.
This big bold sentiment (which fits perfectly onto the Frames and Flags Die banner) becomes the focus and I have a fabulous, non-girly, no bling birthday card. Yay!!! And while this is super clean, the great script sentiment makes this still feel special. Birthday Essentials for the win!!
