NND July Release Day 1



Happy Monday everyone.. It's time for the July Release from Newton's Nook and this Month it's Newton's 4th Birthday!!! So we have a huge release and a Fun Blog Hop on Friday with lost of prizes, so stay tuned all week!!! 

Today we are introducing Winston's Lake House and it's Coordinating Dies... 

Lake Advice ... 

Sea Borders Die Set....

and 4 Stencils!!!! 

I'm so excited about the stencils.... Be sure to watch my video at the end of this post where I share some fun techniques on how to use these stencils to create backgrounds and stay tuned all week to see how I used them in my projects!! 

My first project today uses the new Winston's Lake House set and coordinating dies...


I started with a piece of Bristol card stock and I added some Tumbled Glass Distress ink along the top to create a sky. Then I stamped some of the trees from the Whispering Pines set to create a forest look. I used the Landborder die to create a bank along my river and I used some Vintage Photo Distress Oxide ink to color it in. I used the new Sea Border Die to create my Lake and I colored that with more Distress Oxide inks. Then I added some waves with the Sea Border die as well. 


I stamped the images from Winston's Lake House onto some X-Press it blending card stock and colored them in with copics. Then I used the coordinating dies to cut them out. I stamped the sentiment along the edge of the bank. 

My second card uses the Lake Advice set... This set has some fun images in it that makes it perfect to create your own background. 


I stamped all the images onto some watercolor paper with Archival Brown ink and then I colored them loosely with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers and a water brush. I stamped the water ripple and wave in Distress ink and blending it out a little. I adhered the base to an A2 size card base and then I added some Vintage photo around the edges.
