Merry & Bright Card | Newton's Nook Designs


As I sat down to create my card, I just couldn't decide on a what stamp set to use. I pulled out all of my favorites and as I was looking at them I had a light bulb moment! What if I combined some of my favorite Newton and friends images onto one card? That's exactly what I did. I stamped and colored all of the images using Copic markers and then die cut each one using the coordinating die set.

This card uses the following stamp sets: Happy Howl-idays, Slothy Christmas, Llama Delivery, Naughty or Mice, and Santa Paws Newton.

The sentiment is from the Sentiments of the Season Stamp Set. I cut a piece of red cardstock using the Frames & Flags Die Set. I then stamped the sentiment with Versamark Embossing Ink and heat embossed it with white embossing powder. I finished off the card by placing Newton and his friends onto a piece of white cardstock cut using the postage edged die from the Framework Die Set.

How to Create a Layered Stamp Design with Embossing

For this card, I want to share with you a quick and easy what to create a layered stamp design without having to create a mask. Typically when layering stamped images, you need to create a mask using a sticky note and fussy cutting. This technique gives you the same look without all of the fuss!

Begin by stamping your first image with Versamark Embossing Ink, sprinkle it with white embossing powder and emboss it with a heat gun. Here I choose the largest floral image because this is the one that I wanted to be on top of the other images. In the photo below this is the image on the right hand side.


To create the layers, take the next image you want to layer and stamp it with Versamark Embossing Ink. BEFORE you heat emboss the image, take a small paint brush and wipe away the embossing powder that's overlapping the top image. Once all of that is removed, emboss the powder with your heat gun.

Repeat this process as you add each new layer of your design. The main thing to keep in mind is everything else is below your top image, so wipe away what is overlapping that image.

Once the stamping and embossing is completed, color in your images with your choice of medium. Here I used Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers to achieve a dreamy watercolor effect. I also used a water brush to help blend the colors and add some color around the flowers. I finished off the background by creating ink splatters. This is super easy to achieve. All you have to do is color with the marker onto a craft mat, spritz it water, and then use a paint brush to flick the color onto card.

To finish off the card, I used a sentiment sticker from Jillibean Soup's Garden Harvest Collection. You could certainly use a stamp here as well and achieve the same look by stamping the sentiment with Versamark Embossing Ink onto black cardstock and then heat set it with white embossing powder.
