Hi readers! Happy Wednesday! Please join me in welcoming back the amazing Nina Marie Trapani to our blog as a guest! Today she’s showcasing some newer Newton’s Nook designs! Isn’t this design so cute! I love how it’s an Easter set, BUT she stretched it to make it a springy “just because” card. Brilliant! Read on and enjoy!
Well hello there, it’s Nina-Marie here with you today! I’m sharing a fun video tutorial with you featuring lots of coloring, masking and stamping techniques, along with new stamps from Newton’s Nook Designs!
I love to create scenes with lots of dimension and layers. But sometimes its fun to minimize the layers and make a card that LOOKS dimensional but in fact uses little to no layers, and that’s what I did for today’s card.
I’ve used the new Hello Spring stamp set from Newton’s Nook Designs and what I love about this set is that you can use it year round; I’m always on the lookout for a stamp set that has the ability to be used for more than just one season.
To create the adorable little chicks on this card, I did some masking to stack them up on top of each other… and that little chicky teetering at the top just makes me laugh! I colored them in with Copic markers and I’ve got the colors listed below for reference:
chicks: Y000, Y02, Y08, RV00, R20, YR23 chick in egg: E0000, E50, E30, E31
grass: YG23, G25, G14, G07
tulips: RV13, RV21, BV00, BV04, BV02 yellow flowers: Y02, Y15, E17
clouds: BG01, BG0000, B000
To see how I created the entire card from start to finish, be sure to check out the video below, or over on our Simon Says Stamp YouTube channel!

Thanks so much for stopping by and spending some time with me… I’ll see you again soon! xoxo, Nina-Marie
