Newton’s Nook Reveal Day #3 – Message in a Bottle

Happy Thursday everyone! I am so glad you’ve stopped by for day 3 of the Newton’s Nook reveal week!

This new stamp set also has some great coordinating dies (sold separately), and the card I have created today features a fun way to use both the stamp set and the coordinating dies!




I started off by stamping one of the bottles, the cork and the anchor included in the set, onto a piece of cardstock. With some sticky notes, I masked off the sides of the bottle and stamped the waves using a stamp from another brand new Newton’s Nook set, called Shark Bites. Masking off the water, I finally stamped the ship from Message in a Bottle.

I colored all the images with Copic markers, and taking the coordinating dies, I die cut all three pieces . I then looped a length of red bakers twine through the anchor, attached it to the back of the bottle die cut, and tied it around the neck in a knot.

On a white cardstock panel I stamped and gold heat embossed a sentiment from the Message in a Bottle stamp set, and attached my elements to the center with foam tape. The clouds are die cut from the Newton’s Naptime die set, which is a new die set for the July release!

Finally, I added some Glossy Accents to the highlights of the bottle and stamped some seagulls in black ink.

    I like the way you combine so many different sets in one card. That really stretches their use, and the cost of stamp sets. The twine around the bottle was really clever.
