Welcome back for day 2 of the April Release from Newton’s Nook Designs. Today we have a wonderfully elegant set that is perfect for another fixture of spring…weddings. It is called Wedding Frills and it is gorgeous. As if that were not enough, we are showcasing a new stencil called Floral Lace as well.
When I saw these gorgeous images, I immediately wanted to make them look like lace on a wedding dress. Something about embossing white on kraft colored card stock does that! I cut the image layer with the Frames and Flags Dies and then stamped the big flower and sentiment with Versamark Ink (I did this in steps to avoid causing smudges with the Versamark). Using Wow! Bright White Embossing Powder, I heat embossed. Then I stamped a few of the little flowers and did the same. Using the coordinating Wedding Frills dies, I cut those out and popped them up. Finally I added some pearls to go with my wedding flowers. I love the elegant feel of this card!
For my second card I wanted something with a more spring-like feel. I cannot even tell you how awesome this stencil is to use! I taped it onto some Bristol Smooth card stock and then sponged on Distress Inks to highlight the flowers and leaves. I sponged a little bit more of the paper and then cut out my sentiment letters with the new Essential Alphabet Dies. I just used a bit of foam tape to pop them up and make them stand out more. Think of all the color combinations you can try! I can’t wait to make more of them.
I hope you enjoy these! What a day 2!! I know you have lots of hopping to do so off to visit the rest of the team for you. But first….a chance to win!!
