Newton's Nook Designs April Release | Newton's Graduation

Hello and welcome to Day 1 of Newton's Nook Designs April Release! We're starting off this first day with a new stamp set featuring Newton called Newton's Graduation. This set is just in time for all the graduations coming up soon. There is also a brand new alphabet die set called Essentials Alphabet that is sure to become a new staple in your card making and die collection.

Die Cut and Stamped Background | Graduation Card

To get started, I created the background design by stamping the graduation hats from Newton's Graduation stamp set in a light gray ink onto a piece of white cardstock.

I then took the Essentials Alphabet Die (I did not cut the die apart) and centered it on top of the stamped paper and ran it through my die cut machine. Don't you just love the unique texture and pattern it creates?!


To help hold all the letters and numbers in place I adhered a piece of Easy Cut Adhesive by Therm O Web to the back side of this piece.


Next, I stamped the adorable Newton with the globe and the graduation hat using Memento Ink in black. I then colored the images with Chameleon Pens and die cut them using the coordinating die set. For the sentiment I stamped it in black ink onto a banner die cut using the Frames & Flags Die Set. For the final touch, I tied on some black and white baker's twine!

  22. Love your card! I especially like the background (just like a cardmaker to miss the focal point :) of the letter die cuts inlaid into themselves. Then the graduation hat stamped on that. Of course I love Newton holding the world in his paws.
