Hey friends! It’s Amanda from Twiddler’s Nook joining you today for the fun with Newton’s Nook! I’m super excited to have 2 totally different cards to share featuring some deco foil and flock! These products are both so different and so much fun to use! Let’s have a look at the cards and the products I used today.

Let’s start with the fun Newton’s Picnic card and getting inky before we get messy with stencils.
Apply the Deco Foil Transfer Gel Blanco through the Stencil
This was a pretty quick little process, but I took photos to help make it simple. I taped the tree rings stencil in place, inked it up with brown ink. Then removed the stencil and inked it up more, filling in the white space. Next, I replaced the stencil and added transfer gel Blanco. Once that was dry, I ran it through the laminator with Tuscan gold Deco Foil Flock.
On another note, I almost always stencil on an oversized piece of cardstock so I can choose which way to trim it down in the end. So once I flocked this piece, I trimmed it down to 5.5×4.25 inches as well.
I stamped and colored the images from Newton’s Picnic and used the coordinating dies to cut them out. I also stamped the sentiments on speech bubbles I had cut out with the Speech Bubble dies. Then, I took the little ant image from the set and repeatedly stamped him along the bottom left part of the tree ring too! So cute!
I added foam squares to the back of all my images and popped them in place next. Using liquid glue, I adhered the whole panel to a white card base and then moved on to fun finishing touches!
For those, I added glossy accents to little details like the chocolate chips, watermelon seeds, dragonfly bodies, and most importantly, Newton’s toe beans!
Next up, some fun with transfer gel and gorgeous Rainglow foil!!!
I love this foil and thought it was just perfect for a birthday card! Let’s get messy!!! (Again…)
Apply Deco Foil Blanco Transfer Gel through the Stencil
I used Deco Foil Transfer Gel Blanco on my confetti stencil over a white cardstock panel and set it aside to dry.
Once that was dry, I ran it through my laminator with the Rainglow foil. I went back and forth between having the rainbow-striped vertical or horizontal but my daughter was firm that they needed to be vertical. Lol. I’m always happy when someone helps me make those important decisions. 😉
Once that was foiled, I trimmed the panel down to 5.5×4.25 inches. I die cut a scalloped circle from vellum, stamped and heat embossed the birthday roundabout image on it. Then I chose three sentiments I thought went together well, die-cut banners for each one and heat embossed those last.
For assembly, I started by adding foam squares to the back of the sentiment banners. I placed the middle one first. Then lined up the top and bottom ones equidistant from the center. Next, I added another layer of foam squares behind those and placed the circle and banners on my foiled panel. This gives dimension between the vellum and foiling but also between the banners and vellum too. ‘
Next, I used liquid glue to adhered my panel to a white card base, and then to finish this card I trimmed off the excess pink and blue banner tails that were hanging over the edge.
