Newton's Nook Designs June Release!! =)

Pin It

Are you ready for the Newton's Nook Designs June Release!!??
I personally LOVE the New Stamp Sets this month and I KNOW you're going to LOVE them too!!
Today we are sharing the New Chicken Scratch Stamp Set!!
I'm a COUNTRY Girl who grew up on our Family Farm Raising Chickens was just one of my FAVORITE parts about childhood!! Infact, my mom still has Chicken's today and our kids LOVE to go in the Chicken House to see the Chickens and to collect the eggs!! This makes me SMILE as I have such AMAZING Memories of doing this as a child and I LOVE that my kids are able to ENJOY it too!! =)
So you can about IMAGINE my EXCITMENT when I saw this set!! I could WAIT to INK it UP!!
I've made a Masked Card for today and a FUN Video to share this AMAMZING Set!!
I wanted to create a Masked Scene so that I could create a One Layer Stamped Panel and I LOVE using this technique when there are FUN borders in a Stamp Set like this!! The Chicken Wire Stamp is just SO Versatile!! You can use it one its own or stamp it multiple times to create and AWESOME Background!! I decided to create a random design for my card today!!  I started by stamping my row of Chickens!! I then stamped them out onto some Masking Paper, but you could also use the sticky part of some Post-It Notes Paper or Tape!! I then fussy cut them out and masked the Images on my card front!! I used Simon Says Stamp Ink in the Charcoal Color and I stamped it off onto a scratch piece of paper before I stamped on my card front for a lighter image!! I then stamped over the Masked row of Chickens to create a FUN and Random Chicken Wire Background!! I took the chicken print stamp and stamped under the Little Chick's to create a FUN ground!! I used my Color Pencils to color in the Images and then some Gamsol to blend them!! I wanted to make this alittle FUN so I stamped onto some Patterned Paper and then cut out the wings and the Chicken Headdress to add some color!! I LOVE how the White color of the Chickens Pops against the Colored Details!! I then adhered everything down and I added and Embossed a Chicken Wire Cutting Plate Design from MFT into the Base of my Card!! I really LOVE the way it turned out!!

Here is my Video!! I HOPE you ENJOY it!!  =)
