Newton’s Nook Designs February Release – DAY 2

Hello Everyone,

Welcome back to my blog! It is Day 2 of the February release reveals at Newton’s Nook Designs. We are showing you the super cute  Bitty bibs stamp set and Baby bibs die set. There is also a great new scene-building die set called Sky scene builder (I will show this in action later this week) All new products will be available on 21st February.

CARD 1

My first card idea was inspired by the setiments in the set. I stamped and coloured the cute bibs and coloured them with Copic markers. I used the coordinating die to cut them out.

I chose a blue watercolour wash patterned paper as the background, cut it tiny smaller than A2 and backed it with a dark blue pattered paper. I cut 2 thin strips of dark grey cardstock as poles and some grass with the Land border dies.

I used twine in between the poles and hanged the bibs using 3D foam squares. The sentiments I stamped with grey ink.

I added a bit of shimmer to the critters on the bibs, used a black glaze pen on their eyes and a drop of glossy accents I put on the beaks and the water splash. Looks so cute, right?

CARD 2

I love the layering Baby bibs set, I had to make a card using only those! So here it is:

First I created the background using the new Petite Flowers stencil with Metallix Deco Foil White Pearl Gel from Thermoweb on vivid pink cardstock.

Until it was drying I die cut the Baby bib from pink cardstock, heat embossed a sentiment on it in white and backed it with the scalloped piece cut from white cardstock. While I was at die cutting I also cut a few frames using the Frameworks set, stacked them together for dimension and topped it with a white glitter one. I cut the ribbon for the bib from the same cardstock.

When the background was dry, I die cut it with the scalloped rectangle from Frames and Flags, backed the frames with vellum and attached the bib to it. Perfect for a new baby girl!

Congrats! It’s a boy!

Hello Everyone,

I am back again with my second post for today with a cute baby card, perfect for sending congratulations to the new parents. I made it for a new baby boy, but it can easily be adapted for a girl too. The goodies I used to create this card are all from Pink and Main.

I started with stamping the baby and some accessories from the Bundle of Joy stamp set. I quickly added some colour with my Copic markers keeping the colours used very minimal: light brown and blue. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out.

I also die cut a stitched star from white cardstock and also from a pretty golden metallic one. I used the Congrats die set to cut the sentiment from the same cardstocks and layered these on top of each other.

For the background I chose a blue toned patterned paper with foiled stars on it from the Galaxy foil paper pad (the best ever!)

I assembled the card using liquid glue and popped up the coloured images with 3D foam squares. The only embellishment I used was a touch of glossy accents on the jar and the hearts on the bottle.

I hope you enjoyed today’s inspiration and you will be back tomorrow for more fun! Till then happy crafting!

IPC #66 – more inspiration

Inky Paws Challenge

Happy Monday Everyone,

I am back here again with some more baby cards for the Inky Paws Challenge #66 Baby theme.

I purchased the Lovable Laundry stamp and Stitched onesie die set last year from Newton’s Nook, and it became one of my favourites since then. The images are super cute, so easy and fun to colour, the possibilities are endless. It makes the sweetest baby cards and the die adds some faux stitching which is adorable.

For this week I wanted something really colourful and suitable for a new baby boy. I selected a couple of Doodlebug patterned paper and die cut them using a stitched collage die from MFT. I cut the same die also from coordinating coloured cardstock and paper pieced them on a white top folding card base.

I stamped the sentiments in black ink on the blue panels on both cards. Then I stamped the onesies on Copic friendly cardstock and coloured them with Copics. After die cutting them I popped them up on the cards using extra layers of the onesie cut from white cardstock. It looks like chipboard in this way.

On one of the cards I added some white fancy scalloped circles under the onesies for more contrast. It would not be a card from me without some  Tonic Aqua Shimmer and glossy accents.

IPC #66 – fun baby card

Inky Paws Challenge

Hello Everyone,

A new challenge is live on the Inky Paws Challenge site. The theme is Baby cards, such a fun thing to create.

For my card today I wanted to challenge myself and use the latest Newton’s Nook Designs stamps I have. So I created a little cupcake family using images from Sending Hugs and Love bites. I coloured them with Copics and cut them out with the coordinating dies.

Then I set the scene: I die cut a stitched heart from white cardstock, 2 stitched scalloped edges from green, a piece of Doodlebug patterned paper and some strips of purple cardstock. I assembled the card on a white card base ad popped up the little cupcake with 3D foam tape to put it in the spotlight.

The sentiment is from Lovable Laundry, stamped in Lavender ink.

I wanted to make it more playful, so I hand drew a face to the little cupcake to match the “parents” in style. I used a black glaze pen on the eyes and glossy accents on the hearts. I added a tiny amount of shimmer with my Tonic Aqua Shimmer pen to the cupcake holders.

Welcome Aliz

Hello Everyone,

This is a special blog post, as yesterday evening my niece was born. Thanks God she is a cute, healthy little baby, and we could not be happier to have her. I had to make a welcome card for Aliz (Alice in Hungarian), I used the current MFT sketch challenge as inspiration:

Sketch Challenge 349 #mftstamps

Here is my card:

20170911_171644 wm

I started with selecting the background paper. I wanted something playful but not very pink (I just made my brother and my sister-in-law a very pink card when we gave some clothes a day before the delivery – blog post later this week). I cut a stitched rectangle with Blueprints 15 and a matching blue stitched rectangle frame. I also cut another 3 frames from leftover packaging and stacked them together for dimension.

20170911_171655 wm

I also cut a piece of white heavy weight vellum and adhered it to the back of the stacked frames. It muted the background pattern enough to make the little critters pop. I white heat embossed a sentiment from the MFT Essential sentiments set on a pink stitched banner and glued it flat to the bottom of the frame.

20170911_171709 wm

The cute little images are from the Up in the air stamp set, stamped in black and coloured with Copics. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out and adhered them to the frame using 3D foam tape.

20170911_171732 wm

I gave a light grey mat to the whole panel and mounted it on a white top folding card base. A bit of Spectrum Noir shimmer pen on the heart garland, glossy accent on the noses and a black glaze pen on the eyes finished it off.

I will link this up on the MFT Sketch Challenge #349 and the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Stamp it.

I hope you like this cute welcome baby card and will return for more inspiration soon.

Have a wonderful day,

Zsofi
