Newton’s Nook Designs January Release Day 1 – Love à La Carte

Hey everyone! And welcome to Day 1 of the Newton’s Nook January Release!

We have two *awesome* sets being released this month – and you’re totally invited to come party with us!

Today’s set is a sweet delicious cutie called Love à La Carte and is full of delicious images that are bound to whet your stamping appetite!! Perfect for kids or grown up kids alike, this set is so sweet and contains adorable sentiments too!

I decided to focus on one image today – the adorable cupcake – and then let the sentiments do the talking, literally:

What do you think? I love how this turned out!

I started my stamping my cupcake onto patterned papers from the My Mind’s Eye and did some paper piecing to get that yummy frosting and cute heart! I adhered the pieces together with Pinflair Glue Gel for a little dimension.

Next I die cut some speech bubbles and coloured them lightly with Copics, then stamped my sentiments on them. I love the cupcake taking the place of the word in the conversation! I created a card base shaped like a phone and adhered my elements in place for a cute little card that is perfect to slip into a lunchbox or briefcase!

All the Newtonians (that’s what I’ve decided to call us, hehe!) are blog hopping today! Please be sure to join us and hop along and comment on each of the team’s creations! Read on because there’s a prize up for grabs!

  1. Oh…the paper-pieced cupcake is awesome…I was straining my eyes trying to figure out what kind of fabulous new inking technique this might be, but those papers are perfect!

  2. Adorable! I love the cupcake in your sentiment! Like a rebus. Coloring the other speech bubble is so smart to indicate the other person talking. Still loving those lights in the background and the mirrored surface … I think you have a winner there!
