25 Days of Christmas Tags – Newton’s Nook Designs

Hello Everyone,

I am so excited to join the sweet Tracey McNeely this year again in her 25 Days of Christmas tags event! Today we are all featuring stamps and dies from Newton’s Nook Designs. Here is what I created with the cutest deer from Festive Fawns:

I stamped and coloured the critter with Copic markers and cut it out with its coordinating die.

For the tag itself I used the Fancy Edges Tag die set. I cut the base from white cardstock and from patterned paper (Doodlebug). I cut the topper from green cardstock and a snowbank plus the reinforcer from white glitter cardstock. For the snowbank I used the Sea border die set.

After assembling the tags, I white heat embossed the sentiment above the deer.

A couple of white gel pen dots and a bit of glossy accents on the nose and bow made it even cuter. For the berries I used Nuvo drops. The eyes are shining because of the black glaze pen. I finished them with thick green twine from Tonic.

I hope you enjoyed today’s inspiration. If you want to play along, please read the guidelines on Tracey’s blog. There are amazing sponsors!

See you soon with more fun projects!

Deer friends – Newton’s Nook Designs

Hello Everyone,

I am here today with a cute holiday card created with the latest release of Newton’s Nook Designs. I am fond of the woodland critters series and I am so happy that there is a winter edition now.

I stamped and coloured the snowy friends from the Festive Fawns stamp set using Copic markers. I used the coordinating die to cut it out.

While I was at it I also die cut a stitched square panel from blue cardstock and from white glitter paper using the Frames Squared die set. I cut the scalloped square from purple cardstock and some pine trees from dark green using the Forest Scene builder set.

Before assembling the scene I used a Versamark pen on the hat of the snowman and on the trees and poured WOW White Puff embossing powder on it. I heat set it with my heat gun, I love the texture it gives!

I also added a white metallic cardstock layer in between the scene and the purple mat. I can never have enough layers I guess 🙂

The sentiment I stamped in purple on a subtle checked patterned paper from Sunny Studio and added the focal panel too.

A bit of clear shimmer on the scarf and hat plus a bit of glossy accents finished it off.

I hope you enjoyed my card today and will check back later for a not typical coffee card! See you in a few hours!

Falala – Hello Bluebird

Hello Everyone,

I love the Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop so much that I cannot stop creating coffee cards. I also try to stick to colouring every day a little bit, as therapy advised by the gorgeous Kathy Racoosin. Today’s cuties are from Hello Bluebird, one of my favourite companies.

I started with stamping and colouring some of the images from the Skating party stamp set. I used Copic markers in vibrant colours. I cut everything out with the coordinating dies.

Then I worked on the background: I heat embossed the Snowfall background stamp with WOW white puff embossing powder on a kraft top folding card base. To make it colder I sponged white pigment ink on the edges of the card base – I feel the instant breeze!

To set the scene I created a snowbank from white cardstock using the Land Border dies from Newton’s Nook Designs and I also die cut a couple of pine branches (Holly and Pin die set) from the same white cardstock. I used Pine Needles Distress ink to add colour.

The sentiment is die cut 2 times from white cardstock and once from blue glitter cardstock. I stacked them together and added a white heat embossed sentiment under it.

As a finishing touch I used a black glaze pen on their eyes, a clear shimmer pen on the caps and glossy accents on the noses and cups.

I will link this project also to the SSS IG challenge (Happy Holidays) and to the SSS Wednesday Challenge Anything goes.

I hope you enjoyed today’s inspiration and will join me tomorrow again.

See you,

Coffee Lovers Blog Hop – Heffy Doodle

Hello Everyone,

I am back today with my second card for the Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers blog hop. This time I used an exclusive stamp set designed by Heffy Doodle for the Simon Says Stamp STAMPTEMBER event last year.

I stamped and coloured the images from the More than S’mores set with Copic markers and fussy cut them out. I also stamped the sentiment on white cardstock and used a dotted circle die from Lawn Fawn to cut it out.

I chose a warm plaid patterned paper from Lawn Fawn as the background but I cut it tiny smaller than an A2 sized card front so I could have a dark brown mat under it.

I die cut a couple of leaves with the Newton’s Nook Designs Autumn Leaves die set from brown and yellow cardstock scraps. As I did not find a matching orange, I cut the largest leaf from white cardstock and used my orange copic to add the perfect colour to it.

After die cutting a thin strip of mustard grass I assembled the scene using 3D foam squares under the cute critters. I popped up the circle with 3D foam squares too so it has a really nice, dimensional look.

I added some white gel pen highlights and some black glaze pen to the eyes. I also used my clear shimmer pen on the coffee cups and added drops of glossy accents on the noses, lids, hearts and the sentiment too. So cozy!

I will link this project up to the Heffy Doodle FB Challenge (Autumn) too. I wish you liked my project today and will return tomorrow for more fun!

See you soon,

Holly Jolly holiday

Hello Everyone,

I am back today with a cute Santa card inspired by the current stenciling challenge at Pippi (my favourite Hungarian crafts store).

I created a soft ink blended background with Salty Ocean and Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide inks. Then I used the Card Sized Confetti stencil from MFT to add some tone-on-tone stars. I used the other stencil in the set with some Nuvo Shimmer paste to add some sparkly texture too.

Until it was drying I stamped and coloured the images from the MFT Santa and Friends set using Copic markers and cut them out with the coordinating dies.

I also cut some snow slopes from Lawn Fawn white glitter cardstock and adhered it to the bottom of the inked panel.

Finally I white heat embossed a sentiment from the same stamp set on a slim black banner.

As a finishing touch I added some white puff embossing powder to the santa hat and uniform with the help of a clear embossing pen. I used glossy accent on the boots, buttons and saddle and added some white gel pen highlights.

I hope you liked my card today and will pop in again soon for more fun projects. Until next time, happy crafting!

Hello Pumpkin!

I was so happy to learn that Heffy Doodle has now their own challenges! YAY! It inspired me to create this Fall card for someone special.

I stamped and coloured images from the Hootiful and Veggie Patch stamp sets using Copic markers. I cut everything out with their coordinating dies.

I wanted a simple yet stunning night sky as the background for these cute owls. I masked off a circle on a white top folding note card and sponged Blueprint Sketch, Chipped Sapphire and Black Soot Distress Oxide inks with a blending brush. I added some water droplets, some diluted blue and black ink splatters and also a sprinkle of Lawn Fawn Liquid Stardust. It gives amazing shimmer, like real stars! I love it!

After removing the mask I added a little bit of Iced Spruce Distress Oxide to the moon. I also die cut grass from black cardstock and sponged some white pigment ink for a foggy look.

I adhered the images flat to the card and popped up only 2 owls with 3D foam squares. I white heat embossed a sentiment on black cardstock and added them at an angle to the card. Finally I used a black glaze pen on the eyes and glossy accents on the beaks.

I will upload this project to the Heffy Doodle Challenge (Fall), to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge (Fall colours) and to the Simon Says Stamp IG Challenge (Favourite technique).

I hope you enjoyed today’s card inspiration and will pop in again tomorrow for more fun!

See you,

Boo! – Pink and Main

Hello Everyone,

I am here with yet another Halloween cutie which shows you a good example how to use a small image as the focal point on a card. The product I used to make this card are from Pink and Main.

I stamped and coloured the cute hedgehog from the Less tricks stamp set using Copic markers. I cut it out with the coordinating die.

Then I cut a 2 inches wide strip of chevron patterned paper and matted it with orange cardstock. I adhered it to the middle of a black card base.

I die cut a stitched banner from blue cardstock and a small one from green and layered them on top of each. I heat embossed a sentiment from the Fall Sentiment stamp set on purple cardstock and assembled the banner.

After popping up the hedgehog with 3D foam squares and adding some orange glossy dots to the small banners, I felt there is something missing, so I stamped the Boo! sentiment in black above the little critter.

A bit of black glaze pen on the pumpkin and a drop of glossy accent on the stem finished it off.

I hope you enjoyed this simple design and will return soon for more.

See you,

Zsofi
