Newton’s Nook Designs Winter Birds | Copic Coloring

Newton's Nook Winter Birds

 

Hey crafty friends! I hope you are keeping warm where ever you are. I’m in Florida and for us Floridians – 60’s is cold. Although it could just be me, but, this girl definitely misses the warm weather. Today’s card uses Winter Birds by Newton’s Nook Designs and is inspired by the current color challenge at Inky Paws.

I love cardinals, their spectacular red color is a symbol of absolute beauty. After stamping the images with Copic-friendly ink, I used my Copic Markers to color the images.

Copic Color Combinations

Cardinal: R39, R29, R27, R24, R17, R14, W7
Berries: C5, C4, C2

I struggled with the background quite a lot before settling on using a piece of patterned paper. I matted the cream music sheet piece of patterned paper to an A2-sized brown cardstock.  Interestingly enough, the combination worked.

Next, I used the small berry image to create a wreath surrounding the little cardinal and adhered those on a piece of vellum. I attached the cardinal to the center of the wreath with foam adhesive and centered a sentiment strip at the bottom.

It’s a simple card, with a vintage feel and very unlike me. But I absolutely love the way the card came together. I hope you do too! As always thank you so much for stopping by, until next time….sprinkle a little creativity on your day!

Newton’s Nook Designs Winter Birds | Starfield Stencil and Nuvo Glimmer Paste | Christmas Handmade Card

Hi everyone, it is almost the end of the week and that means (at least in my house) hands up for the weekend!
I wanted to share an adorable Christmas card featuring this beautiful cardinal from the
Winter Birds stamp set by Newton’s Nook Designs.

I began by stamping out the images from the stamp set onto a piece of Neenah Solar White 80lb. cardstock with Memento Tuxedo
Black ink and using Copic markers to color in these. I used the ScanNCut to cut these images out. I had a little trouble with the
berries but nothing that a little tape could not fix.

Bird: R59, R39, R29, R27, R24, R22, E39, W33
Branch: E29, E27, E25, E23
Berries: R27, R39

For the background, I took a piece of Bristol smooth cardstock and ink blended Peacock Feathers Distress Ink using a blender brush.
Once it was dry, I die cut the panel using a stitched rectangle from the Frames & Flags Die set by Newton’s Nook Designs.
And then, I added the Nuvo Glimmer Paste in Moonstone over the Starfield Stencil for a touch of sparkle to the background.

Once the background was dry, I adhered the images with foam tape and then added it on top of a red scalloped
rectangle panel. I debated on adding the sentiment to the front of the card but I chose to stamp the sentiment on the inside
and not cover up any of the gorgeous sparkle on the card front.

This card was inspired by the current Inky Paws Challenge titled “Snowy Day”, check out the design teams inspiration
