Newton’s Nook Designs November Release – DAY 4

Hello Everyone,

It is the last day of the November release reveals at Newton’s Nook Designs and we have some frosty fun for you today. Frosty Folks  will have coordinating dies too. All new products will be available on Friday, 15/11!

For the background I added some Tonic Shimmer powder on Ranger Distress Watercolor paper. I spritzed it with water and let the colours move and mix. I dried it with my heat tool and cut the panel down with the postage stamp die from Frameworks.

I stamped and coloured the snowmen with Copic markers and cut them out with the coordinating die.

I also cut a white postage stamp panel and used the Land border die to cut a snowbank.

On a small white ticket shaped piece I heat embossed the sentiment with WOW Metalline Dark Blue Embossing powder. Before assembling the card I heat embossed some snowflakes in white on the background.

I popped up the sentiment and snowmen with 3D foam squares and added some clear shimmer to the accessories.

I used glossy accents on the noses an buttons and a black glaze pen on the eyes.

Newton’s Nook Designs November Release – DAY 3

Hello Everyone,

We are halfway through the November Release reveals at Newton’s Nook Designs but look at the cuties for today! Penguin Pile is a cute small set which will have coordinating dies too. And Let it snow is a beautiful mini set perfect for clean and simple designs! All new designs will be available on Friday, 15/11!

CARD 1

I stamped and coloured the penguins and the ice from Penguin Pile first using Copic markers and cut them out with the coordinating dies.

I added Ranger Crackle Accents to the ice piece and set it aside to dry.

I adhered them to a thin strip of white cardstock with 3D foam squares and matted it peacock cardstock. For the background I chose a colourful patterned paper from Doodlebug Designs.

The sentiment I white heat embossed on a pink banner which I cut with the Frames and flags die set. Under it I adhered a thinner flag cut with the same die set from patterned paper.

After assembling the card I used glossy accents on the feet and beaks, a black glaze pen on the eyes of the penguins and added some clear shimmer to the scarves and caps.

CARD 2

I white heat embossed the Let it snow sentiment on Bristol Smooth cardtsock 3 times under each other. I used a blending brush to add a soft layer of colour: Blueprint Sketch, Peacock feathers and Cracked Pistachio Distress Oxide inks.

I cut it down to be 2 and 3/4 inches wide and matted it with Blue Violet cardstock. I added clear shimmer to the snow part to make it more festive. I love how the oxide inks react with water!

On a white card base I used the Snowfall stencil with Gina K Designs Glitz Glitter gel in white. I love the pretty sparkle and tone on tone effect! It gave the perfect background for my ink blended sentiments panel, don’t you think?

Newton’s Nook Designs November Release – DAY 2

Hello Everyone,

It is Day 2 of the November release reveals at Newton’s Nook Designs and we continue the winter fun with sledging kitties. Newton’s Toboggan will have coordinating dies too and there is also a gorgeous new stencil coming which makes mountain scene making a breeze. All new products will be available on Friday, 15/11!

I started with stamping and colouring the kitties with Copic markers and cut them out with the coordinating dies.

The scene I created directly on a white card base made of Neenah Solar White 110 pounds cardstock. I used a Life Changing brush from Picket Fence Studios to add Salty ocean and Blueprint sketch distress oxide inks on the top and then laid the Mountains stencil on the card base I added a light layer of Black Sooth Distress Oxide ink.

The snowy hills I created with Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink and spritzed it with Avery Elle Shimmer Spritz for a subtle sparkle.

I heat embossed some snowflakes from the stamp set on the sky in white and added the snowcaps with the help of the Mountains stencil and white texture paste.

The sentiments I stamped on white Speech Bubbles which I cut down to size with the partial die cutting technique. The kitties I popped up with 3D foam squares and added a bit of clear shimmer to their caps and scarves.

Newton’s Nook Designs November Release – DAY 1

Hello Everyone,

I am super excited to share with you my inspiration for the first day of Newton’s Nook Designs November Release! It is full of winter fun, today our team showcases the Snowmen Party stamp set which perfectly coordinates with the previously released Frames Squared die set. All new products will be available on Friday, 15/11!

For my card I stamped the image with Versamark ink and heat embossed it with silver embossing powder. I used Tombow markers to add colour.

I trimmed around the coloured image with my paper trimmer leaving a bit of white frame. I matted it with a light blue scalloped stitched square which I cut with the Frames Squared die set.

The background is a snowflake patterned paper from Doodlebug Designs, I popped up the focal panel on this with 3D foam squares.

As a finishing touch I added pink twine on the top of the card and used glossy accents on the buttons and carrot noses.

Newton’s Nook Designs Mini Release

Hello Everyone,

I am super excited to share with you my inspiration for the September Mini Release at Newton’s Nook Designs. There is a small sunflower stamp set with its coordinating die and a gorgeous stencil available RIGHT NOW!

For my card I stamped the sunflower with brown hybrid ink and coloured it using Copic markers. I cut it out with the coordinating die and cut another 3 from scrap white cardstock to give it a lot of dimension when stacked together.

I kept the card simple, on a 4 bar card I adhered a green gingham patterned paper (Lawn Fawn). I wrapped yellow twine on the stems of the sunflower and tied it in a bow. I adhered it to a wide strip of kraft cardtsock and matted it with dark brown cardstock.

The sentiment I stamped with the same brown hybrid ink on top and assembled the card.

I skipped using embellishments but I added a thick layer of Ranger Multi MAtte Medium in the middle of each flower and poured brown mini prills on them.

It gives it a gorgeous texture! It is so beautiful in real life!

GIVEAWAY

Would you like to win this whole new Mini Release? We are giving a prize pack that includes the “Sunflower Days” Stamp and Die Set and the “Gingham” Stencil ONE lucky winner!

One layer floral card – Pink and Main

Hello Everyone,

I am back today with a clean and simple floral card I created with the Just because stamp set from the August release of Pink and Main.

I started with blending Distress Oxide inks on a white top folding card base: Candied Apple, Worn Lipstick and Spiced Marmalade. I spritzed it with water for a textured look and dabbed it off after 30 seconds with a paper towel.

I made sure the panel is dry and arranged some of the sentiments from the Just because stamp set in my stamp positioner. I stamped them with the same Distress Oxide inks several times so they are darker than the background. I love the tone on tone effect so much!

I heat set it with a heat tool as I wanted to white heat emboss the main sentiment and I did not want the powder to stick to unnecessary places. To make the sentiment pop even more I repeated the stamping-embossing part. It is more dimensional this way.

I did not want to distract the attention too much, so I decided to use mini white flowers as embellishments from the Spring Wreath decor die set. I cut out a bunch and scattered them all around the card. As a finishing touch I adhered a mini silver Glossy Dot in each flower center. One layer card but so special thank to the pretty background and the little flowers.

I hope you got inspired and will give this a try. Until next time, happy crafting!

Newton’s Nook Designs August Release – Day 3

Hello Everyone,

I cannot believe that we are half way through the August release reveals at Newton’s Nook Designs! After some coffee and some Fall images we are introducing cute mice playing outside enjoying autumn weather. Autumn mice is a playful and adorable set which comes with coordinating dies.

I started with colouring all the images in the set, I even coloured some extra leaves as I knew I would build some Fall scenes which needed plenty of leaves. When I had everything cut out I was already sure I will end up with more than just one card.

CARD #1

For my first scene I die cut the Lawn Fawn Leafy Tree Backdrop Landscape die 3 times from dark brown cardstock. I also cut some grass and hills with the land border dies from yellow and kraft cardstocks. To make the images pop I used the Lawn Fawn stitched clouds backdrop on aqua cardstock.

I assembled the scene on an A2 sized white card base and layered the tree frame.

The sentiment I stamped on a grey banner (Frames and flags die set) and tucked it under the last frame.

I added the images and adhered a couple of leaves on the tree and on the grass too. I added white gel pen highlights, emphasized the eyes and noses with a black glaze pen and added glossy accents on the scarf and stems of the pumpkins.

CARD #2

My next project is a 4 bar card, where I used a couple of patterned paper from Lawn Fawn as a background for my mini scene. I used the same scene building elements as on the A2 sized card just this time I made a 3 layered dimensional frame using the Framework die set.

I stamped another sentiment from the set with brown ink directly on the background and popped up the mini scene with 3D foam squares.

I covered the cap of the acorn with glossy accents and used a black glaze pen on the eyes and nose of the mouse.

TAG

And last but not least I created a little tag using the Fancy edges tag die set. I like to make my tags thicker by adding an extra piece on the back. In this way I ensure the pretty finished look also.

I used some sturdy twine and yet another gorgeous sentiment from the Autumn mice set.
