Newton’s Nook Designs January Release – DAY 4

Hello Everyone,

We have reached the final day of the January release reveals at Newton’s Nook Designs. We saved the best for last: 2 smaller sets with our favourite kitty. All new products will be available tomorrow, on 24th January.


For my first card I started with the background: I always wanted to try Distress Oxide inks over coloured cardstock, so I used the Bokeh Hearts stencil Layer 1 with Warm Lipstick and Layer 2 with Candied Apple over kraft cardstock. I love that these stencils have engraved guides how to layer them on top of each other. So smart!

Then I stamped, coloured and die cut the kitty, flowers and hearts from the Newton’s Valentine set. I made extras as embellishments as usual. I used Copic markers to add colour.

To create a scene I die cut a rounded stitched rectangle using the Frames and Flags die set from vellum as I did not want to cover the pretty stenciled background totally. I cut a grassy border from green cardstock and assembled the scene.

I die cut the stenciled panel with the scalloped rectangle from the same die set and hiding the liquid adhesive behind the die cut critters I layered the vellum over this.

The sentiment I white heat embossed on a dark brown banner (Frames and flags) and added it to the scene.

I used a ton of shimmer on the hearts and covered the smaller ones with glossy accents. I also added glossy accents to the middle of the flowers and the nose of the kitty.


I believe the Newton’s Crafty Cardio is hilarious! Made me laugh big time when I first saw it! So funny!

I stamped the main image and a lot of the little accessories on white cardstock, coloured them with Copic markers using a rainbow of colours and cut everything with the coordinating dies.

On a grey rounded rectangle I popped up the crafty kitty and arranged the accessories at random everywhere. It reminds me of myself while crafting, i make a huge mess in a second 😀

The sentiment I stamped on white cardstock with teal ink and cut it out with a speech bubble die. I used 3D foam squares to adhere it above the crafting kitty.

I matted the panel with pink cardstock and added it to a white top folding card base after adorning it with strips of rainbow patterned paper (Lawn Fawn).

I added clear shimmer and glossy accents to the images and my card was all done!
