Hello everyone! Welcome to day #1 of the Newton’s Nook February release week, where we are showcasing the adorable Made From Scratch stamp and die sets!

Release_IconFeb16

The Made From Scratch set is perfect for not only making cute baking-themed cards, but also little tag and treat projects for your baked goods! Today I’ve created a clean and simple “cluster” using many of the images included in the set for a sweet birthday card.

Newton's Nook Reveal Day #1_1

I used some easy Copic coloring to color in the images, making this an great card idea for both beginners or more advanced artists!

I kept the color selection pretty small, to help keep things coordinating; I also grounded the cluster by creating an illusion of a shelf/counter underneath the images using gray markers. This helps keep the images from appearing as if they are floating.

To see how I put this card together, be sure to check out the video below or over on my YouTube channel! If you enjoy it, please give it a thumbs up and subscribe to my channel… I post new videos every week!
