Newton’s Nook Designs Reveal Day #1

Today’s reveal features the adorable Hoppy Days stamp set… this set can be used for a variety of occasions including birthdays, Valentine’s Day and more! For my card, I’ve chosen to use this set to create a birthday card featuring a technique I like to call “spotlight scenes”.

I stamped the frog included in this set, as well as some hearts from the Newton’s Naptime set onto some cardstock before coloring everything with Copic markers. I then fussy cut the frog out and die cut the hearts using the coordinating die set.

Hoppy Days_1

My scene is created with a Grassy Hills die from My Favorite Things and clouds from Lawn Fawn’s Spring Showers set, all layered onto a Stitched Circle from Simon Says Stamp. I colored the sky and grass with distress and dye inks (Mowed Lawn, Twisted Citron and Squeezed Lemonade for the grass; Ocean Waves and Tumbled Glass for the sky).

Layering the scene up onto the circle creates the “spotlight” effect; in most scenes you would imagine having taking up the entire front of the card. However, when the scene is enclosed into a small area (circular or not), it draws your eye right into the picture… sometimes more impacting than a full-card scene!

Hoppy Days_2

For the background of this jumping frog scene, I kept it simple and stamped a woodgrain pattern onto white cardstock, using a second generation of Pumice Stone distress ink.

To finish everything off, I added Glossy Accents to the hearts and tied pink and red baker’s twine around the bottom of the card.
