This week Newton’s Nook Designs and Xyron are partnering for an awesome inspiration week! Each day there is fresh inspiration using Newton’s Nook Designs products with Xyron adhesives on the NND blog and on the Xyron facebook page! I am thrilled to be here on the lead off day to share with you.
Today’s card all started with the Cameo Frames Die Set. This intricate die is gorgeous but I will admit that dies like this (and word dies) sometime intimidate me because of how to adhere them to a card. So I was a stamper on a mission and took advantage of this collaboration to see what solution I could find. And you know what?? I found one! The Xyron sticker makers are a new to me product and I’m officially in love.
I started by running some glitter paper through the sticker maker. That is certainly simple enough! I removed the top clear layer and then put my die down on the paper. Next up, the Big Shot. I shimmed this with some plain typing paper to force the cut a little more and then ran it back and forth a few times to make sure the cut was really complete. When you remove the die, you are left with a die cut that has a sticky backing. Talk about making things easier! Once I knew it was that simple, I got to designing the rest of the card. This frame is so pretty all alone that I didn’t want to cover it or take away from it. So I pulled out some vellum and did some Versamark stamping followed by silver embossing powder.
I used the Peony Blooms stamp set (one of my all time faves) on the vellum. I added the sentiment from the same set off center. The backing was pulled off the frame and it adhered perfectly. I glued down the flowers and then added a clear button and some silver thread. To add to the silver (but trying not to take away from the gorgeous frame and images), I added a silver striped vellum to a white base. And that’s it.
It all started with the frame and the ability to glue it down simply. Xyron has so many wonderful products and you are sure to find tons of inspiration from the combined DT’s this week. And guess what…a chance to win!
