Simply Lovely

For my Mother by Jen Timko | Lovely Blooms Stamp and Dies by Newton's Nook Designs, Simply Relative Stamp Set by Newton's Nook Designs, BrushoToday is my day to share a project on the Newton’s Nook Designs Blog.  With all the cold we have been having, something about flowers is calling my name.  So Lovely Blooms was a fun choice that I hadn’t used in a while.

I recently got some Brusho Crystal Colours and this was a great time to give them a go.  I played with all the colors in my 5 color pack (available from Stampin’ Up).  On Arches Cold Press Watercolor Paper, I stamped the jar with Versafine Onyx Black Ink.  I filled the jar with water using my paint brush and then sprinkled on the Prussian Blue Brusho.  It is super cool to watch the color spread and move.  I did the same with the flower and the leaves.  The flower uses Gamboge, Brilliant Red and Yellow and the leaves use Moss Green and Yellow.  Just put on the water and sprinkle…it is that easy.  I had my 11 yo help on the leaves because he thought it was so interesting.  Once everything was dry, I cut the flowers and the leaves with the coordinating dies.  For the background wash, I sprinkled a little bit of powder into a palette and added water to create the paler version of the colors.  I love that you can use this in multiple ways too.  I pulled a sentiment from Simply Relative…such a must have set!  You can’t see it from this picture but I actually attached the watercolor panel to a pale yellow card base for a sweet surprise when you open the card.

I hope you enjoy this floral burst of color today!  Make sure to stop by the Newton’s Nook Designs blog for daily inspiration.  Thanks so much for stopping in and I’ll see you soon!

Newton’s Nook Designs April Release – Simply Relative

Newton’s Nook Designs April Release – Simply Relative published on 31 Comments on Newton’s Nook Designs April Release – Simply Relative

Wow, it is already day 3 of the April release from Newton’s Nook Designs.  Today is the day for all of you “sentiment-a-holics”!!  You know who you are!

Wonderful Teacher by Jen Timko | Simply Relative Stamp Set by Newton's Nook Designs, Lovely Blooms Stamp Set by Newton's Nook Designs, Copic ColoringI mentioned yesterday how much I love flower sets but good sentiment sets are another love of mine.  And this is an amazing sentiment set!!  Just look at all the choices to personalize cards for the people you love.  So many of these are options I have not seen in a stamp before and I’m so happy to have them.

I also told you yesterday that the Lovely Blooms set was perfect for coloring and I used it again here to create a frame with flowers.  I chose some pretty pinks and purples and stamped a whole bunch of little flowers.  Before you know it, I had a virtual garden to choose from.  The little dies eliminate any need for fussy cutting and make it easy to create fun groupings.  I chose to make this for a teacher that certainly deserves recognition!  To be truthful, just having this word choice makes the set a must have!  I used the Sky Borders Dies to create a scallop and picked a pretty raspberry card stock as a base.  This is a card that you could easily duplicate for all the teachers who need a little pick-me-up this time of year!  So now is the time that we all love….
