Newton's Nook Designs Sweet Treats Blog Hop 2021!!

Pin It

Welcome to the 7th Annual Newton's Nook Designs Sweet Treats Blog Hop!! 
I've made a FUN Valentine's Day Card for today 

I knew I wanted to create a Scene with the NEW Heart Frames Dies as the Background!! Then I used the Lovely Blooms Stamp Set and the Mother's Day Stamp Set to add some BEAUTFIUL Flowers!! I started by Die Cutting my Stitched Rectangle Card Panel from some Distress Watercolor Cardstock!! Then I Stamped the Mother's Day Stamp Set Image onto my Card Panel towards the bottom 1/3 of the Card with Versa Fine Black Onyx Ink and Embossed with some WoW Clear Gloss Embossing Powder!! I then Inked with Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink and added some Water Splatters for some texture!! I Stamped and Embossed all of the other Images including the SWEET Newton's Valentine Image and colored them all in using Copic Markers!! 
(Newton: E40, E43, E47 & E99  Cheeks/Inside Ears/Paw Pads: R00  Heart: R43, R46 & R89  Bird: BG10, BG45, BG48, Y11, YR23, YR00 & YR68  Flowers: Y11, Y15 & YR23   YR00, YR02 & YR68   RV00, RV02 & RV09   R43, R46 & R89  Greenery: YG60, YG63 & YG67  YG03, YG17 & YG25  G00, G05 & G17)
After everything was colored I used the coordinating Dies to Die Cut them out!! Lovely Blooms Die Set and the Newton's Valentine Die Set!! I Stamped and Embossed the Sentiment onto the NEW Heart Frames Die Cut using WoW Clear Gloss Embossing Powder and Red Glitz Glitter Embossing Powder!! 
I used iCraft 3-D Foam Squares to POP up several of the Flower Images making sure the position them all around the Mother's Day Image and then I placed the Newton's Valentine Image also using 3-D Foam Squares toward the bottom part of the Heart Frames Die Cut and then used the rest of the Flower Images and placed them around with some Ultra Bond Adhesive right to the Card Panel filling in the Design until I got the placement that I liked!! I tried to keep a Visual Triangle in mind and I just LOVE the way that it turned out!! I wanted some Sparkle so I added some Tonic Studios Glitter Drops to the center of each Flower and I also added a scattering of Pretty Pink Iridescent Jewels!! White Pen Details add some Highlights to finish off the Design!!
