Newton’s Nook Designs 7 year Blog Hop

Hello Everyone,

I am thrilled to join the Newton’s Nook Designs team in celebrating their 7th Anniversary with an amazing Blog Hop. There are 7 prizes to win and a fantastic weekend sale, scroll down for the details!

As slimline cards are oh so popular now I wanted to make a rainbow on using the new Slimline Frames and Windows and the Slimline Frames and Porthole dies. They layer on top of each other fantastically!

I started with a piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock which was 8,5 * 3,5 inches and blended Distress Oxide inks at a diagonal in rainbow order: Picked Raspberry, Spiced Marmelade, Mustard Seed, Twisted Citron, Peacock Feathers, Salty Ocean, Blueprint Sketch and Wilted Violet. I used blending brushes, I find them easier to get a smooth blend. I sprinkled the panel with water droplets and also added a bit of Tsukineko Shimmer Spritz for a subtle sparkle. When it was all dry I die cut it with the scalloped rectangle from Slimline Frames and Portholes.

I also cut the porthole die from white cardstock and a black frame using the other slimline die set. I layered them on top o each other using liquid glue.

Then I stamped two glasses from the Cocktail Mixer stamp set on Bristol Smooth Cardstock with Versafine Onyx Black ink and used clear embossing powder to heat emboss them. Then I added colour with my new favourite Karin Brush markers. I love how strong the pigment is in these markers and the tip of it is not flimsy but rather firm. I used the coordinating die to cut them out.

In the middle hole I stamped two sentiments with Stazon Black Pigment ink and popped up the glasses with 3D foam squares.

I finished the cards with tiny clear jewels from Studio Katia.

Bee together

Hello Everyone,

I am back today with an anniversary card I made for my parents for their 40th wedding anniversary. Unbelievably long time, and since my mum loves my cute cards the most, I decided to create something special for them with the Hello Bluebird new release.

I started with stamping and colouring the images from the Bee happy stamp set using Copic markers. I die cut them with their coordinating dies. I added some extra details with a white gel pen, a black glaze pen, and made sure the wings are sparkly enough due to the Tonic Aqua shimmer pen I used on them.

I also added glossy accents to the glasses of one of the bees.

Then I die cut a white heavy weight cardstock panel with the Poppy stamps Honeycomb curve die and backed I with gold metallic cardstock. I trimmed thin black cardstock pieces to add to the sides of the panel and adhered it all to a white top folding notecard.

Then I stamped the sentiments from several sets (MFT From the heart, Welcome baby) using Gina K Designs Amalgam black ink and a Honey Mustard ink also from Gina K Designs. I also stamped the trails of the bees with the same black ink.

I popped up the bees with 3D foam squares and added some fun gold sequins from Honey Bee Stamps which matched the theme perfectly.

I will upload this card to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Anything goes.

I hope you like my card and will return soon for more inspiration.

I am under your spell!

Hello Everyone,

Today’s is a special post, dedicated to my dear husband. We have 2 wedding anniversaries, one for the official part and one for the wedding party. Today is the 8th anniversary of us signing those papers which tied us together in front of our beloved family members and this was the first time we got our fingers inked together 😀

I wanted to make a non-usual card for this occasion and as all my crafty friends are into Halloween card-making, I decided to make it with a Halloween colour combo and stamp set. The design is inspired by the current MFT sketch challenge #352.

Here is my card:

I started with colouring some of the images from the Witch way is the candy stamp set with Copic markers and I fussy cut them out with scissors. For the background scene I inked up a piece of Bristol smooth cardstock using Wilted Violet and Black Soot distress inks. I splattered it with water and dabbed it off with a paper towel. Then used an inside-out diagonal rectangle die to cut my panel. I also inked up a piece of  cardstock with Black soot distress ink and cut the grass with the Grassy fields die. The moon is a piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock circle watercoloured with Hickory Smoke and Picket Fence distress inks.

The sentiment is white heat embossed on the sky.

I gave a silver mat to the focal panel and cut the farm fence die from a special black metallic cardstock. I adhered the fence to a royal purple cardstock and popped up the focal panel with 3D foam tape.

To make the whole scene funny, I added some Doodlebug Eery eyes to the bat and the frog. A bit of Spectrum Noir shimmer pen on the wings and the pumpkins made it complete.

I will upload this card to the MFT Sketch Challenge #352, to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Anything goes and Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge A walk on the dark side.

I hope you like this card and I wish my hubby will like it too.

See you soon with more Halloween fun,

Zsofi
