Happy Wednesday! It’s reveal week over at Newton’s Nook Designs and I’m so excited to share a ton of inspiration with you this week! Today we are showcasing the Kitten Beach and Beach Barks stamp sets and coordinating dies. Here’s how I was inspired!
Can y’all keep a secret? I’m not an animal person, but I’ve recently been loving all the critter stamps! SO MUCH FUN! I love using them to create scene cards! Still working on my coloring though!
For my first card, I colored the dog friends from Beach Barks stamp set and die cut it out using the coordinating dies. To create the scene, I started by die cutting 3 scalloped rectangles from the Frames & Flags Die Set, I inked the first layer using the Petite Clouds Stencil as the ‘sky’. The I created ‘waves’ on the next layer with blue ink, white paint splatters and a cloud border die. The last layer is the ‘sand’ which some brown ink, brown paint splatters and a hill border die.
I added the layers with foam tape to create some dimension and added the dogs between the layers, finishing off with a sentiment from the same Beach Barks stamp set.
For my second card, I made a slimline card as I couldn’t decide which kittens to use, so why not use them all! I stamped and colored all the kittens from the Kitten Beach stamp set and die cut them using the coordinating dies.
I created the scene in a similar way to my first card, layering the Petite Clouds Stencil using the Slimline Masking Circles & Squares Stencil Set, a layer of waves and sand. Lastly I framed the scene using the slimline frame die from the Slimline Frames & Windows Die Set. I added a sentiment in the center from the Kitten Beach stamp set.
