Newton's Nook Designs March Release 2018 ~ Day 2 ~ "Uplifting Wishes" + "Balloon Shaker"!! =)

Pin It

                                     I'm here with Day 2 of the
               Newton's Nook Designs March Release 2018!!
                          Today we're showcasing the NEW 
                         "Uplifting Wishes" Stamp Set +
                            "Balloon Shaker" Die Set!!
                  Let's take a look at AWESOME New Products!!   
 I wanted to share a photo of what it looks like after I'm done Foil Piecing my Stenciled Deco Foil Transfer Gel Background!! I KNOW it  looks like a HOT mess right know, but after you run it through the Laminating machine its SO FUN to start pulling off the Foil to reveal the AMAZING Design underneath!! Also, YES its OKAY to add the Purple Tape to hold the different pieces of colored Foil in place!! I've NEVER had it stick or ruin my projects!!
Here you can start to see the MAGIC of the Piece come to life!! I find it doesn't take any longer to  Foil Piece a Transfer Gel Stenciled Background than it does to color in an Image with Copic Markers or Colored Pencils and the Trade off with the end results is SO WORTH the extra time in my opinion!!  ;) 
 EEEEKKK!! I told you!! I just LOVE it and I HOPE you'll give this technique a try!! ;)
I've used ALL of the NEW Fancy Foils by Gina K Designs and Therm O Web in Sparkling Silver, Twinkling Pink and Dazzling Orange to Foil Piece by Background that was created by using the NEW "Confetti" Stencil along with some Therm O Web Deco Foil Transfer Gel over the Stencil and set it aside to dry!! I then added the Balloon from the NEW "Balloon Shaker" Die Set!! I Colored it with Distress Inks and Stamped and Embossed the Sentiment form the NEW "Uplifting Wishes" Stamp Set and then added some Tonic Studios Aqua Shimmer Pen for Sparkle and some Morning Dew Nuvo Drops for some Dimension!! A Few Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Sequins finish off the Design!!
I created this FUN Gift Bag with a "Balloon Shaker" Tag!! To create my Balloon I Die Cut it from some of the Therm O Web Deco Foil Toner Sheets and then I used some of the Gina K Designs Fancy Foils in Gold Sequin by Therm O Web to Foil it!! I used the Double Sided Adhesive Foam Sheets to create my Shaker and I added LOTS of Pretty Pink Posh Sequins and Confetti on the inside!! For the Bow I Die Cut the NND Pines & Holly Bow from some Distress Watercolor Cardstock and colored it with my Copic Markers!! I Added some Tonic Studios Aqua Shimmer Pen and a Gold Sequin for the Center with some a Nuvo Drop Center!! I Stamped and Embossed the Sentiment from the NEW "Holding Happiness" Stamp Set!! A Lawn Fawn Twine Bow finishes off the Design!! I LOVE this idea for SO MANY occasions and think it just adds a TON of CUTENESS and FUN!!
I started by creating my Cloud Stenciled background using the NND Sky Borders Die Set and Tumbled Glass Distress Ink!! I also used the NEW "Bubbly" Stencil to add some extra Dimension to the Background again using Tumbled Glass Distress Ink!!  To create my Balloon I Die Cut the NEW "Balloon Shaker" Die Set from some of the Therm O Web Deco Foil Toner Sheets and then I used some of the Deco Foil in Rainbow by Therm O Web and I used the Double Sided Adhesive Foam Sheets to create my Shaker!! I added LOTS of Pretty Pink Posh Sequins and Confetti in Gold on the inside!! I Stamped and Embossed the Sentiment from the NEW "Uplifting Wishes" Stamp Set and my Card was done!! I think this would make ANYONE SMILE!!
