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 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.

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!

Boo – Happy Halloween – Lawnfawnatics #62

Hello Everyone,

Iam back today with another Halloween cutie inspired by and made for the Lawnfawnatics Challenge #62 – last minute as always. All stamps and dies are from Lawn Fawn.

I started with ink blending a spooky sky background: I used Bristol Smooth cardstock and Peacock Feathers and Black Sooth Distress inks. I spritzed it with water and added some Peacock Feathers, Black Sooth and White acrylic paint splatters for a textured feeling.

I also added Twisted Citron Distress ink on another piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock, die cut some grass with the Grassy Border and a Simple Grassy Hillside border. I added some Black Sooth Distress ink to the bottom to make it more fitting the mood.

Then I stamped a bunch of images from Booyah, Pick of the Patch and Happy Haunting sets,coloured them with Copic markers and cut them out with their coordinating dies.

After assembling the scene I white heat embossed a sentiment from Pick of the patch on a thin strip of black cardstock and adhered them flat to the card.

I covered the cute ghosts with clear shimmer and added a bit of glossy accents to the roofs, stems and costumes to make them extra special.

I will upload this project to the Lawnfawnatics #62 challenge just as well as to the Simon Says Stamp IG challenge and SSS Wednesday Challenge Halloween.

I hope you enjoyed today’s inspiration and will return soon for more fun!

See you,

Zsofi

Newton’s Nook Designs Holiday Release – Day 4

Hello Everyone,

We reached the last day of the Holiday Release reveals at Newton’s Nook Designs, but don’t be sad, the sweetest we saved for last. I was dreaming of a stamp set with a kitty family for long and now my wishes came true! The Newton’s Christmas Kittens is the perfect family stamp for the holidays. And the 2 minis are just create easy and fantastic tags!

CARD

For my card I stamped and coloured the image with Copic markers and die cut it with the coordinating die. I created santa hats to all the cats and dressed them up for the holiday.

I die cut a stitched rounded rectangle die from the Frames and flags die set from white cardstock and used the same die to cut a piece of green patterned paper for the bottom of it.

I adhered the cats and stamped the sentiment in red on the top left corner. It is one long sentiment but with partial inking I managed to stamp it in 2 rows.

For the background I chose a golden foiled patterned paper from my stash and popped up the focal panel with 3D foam squares at an angle. It is more playful this way.

I felt I needed something in the right upper corner too,so I white heat embossed another sentiment on a small rounded tag die from the Tag times two die set, which I die cut from gold cardstock. I added a red bow on the top so it looks like a Christmas ornament.

The finishing touches I couldn’t leave behind, a lot of clear shimmer was applied on the presents and glossy accents on the ribbon.

To make it super fun, I used a Marvy Snow Marker on the caps and puffed them up with my heat tool. I love the texture!

TAGS

to showcase the 2 mini sets I decided to create tags using the Fancy Edges Tag die set.

I cut the base from patterned paper (Doodlebug) and from vellum.

On the vellum I adhered a small snowbank cut with the Land border die from white glitter cardstock. I silver heat embossed the sentiments on the vellum directly.

To embellish the tags, I cut a scalloped topper from red cardstock and a white reinforcer. I attached the two tags together and used chunky red twine to finish them.

Of course glossy accents I had to add to the presents and I also used some glitter on the santa hat.

Newton’s Nook Designs Holiday Release – Day 2

Hello Everyone,

It is Day 2 of the Holiday Release reveals at Newton’s Nook Designs and we are showcasing the cutest ever Festive Fawns stamp and die set. All new products will be available on 18/10!

For my card I stampd and coloured all the images from the set with Copic markers. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out.

It often happens that I love every image from a stamp set and I cannot choose which ones to use. And then I make a slim card which fits them all 🙂

I made a card base from white cardstock, which measured 8,5 x 8,25 inches and folded it in half. I used the postage stamp die from Frameworks to cut a pretty panel from Sea glass cardstock: I partial die cut almost until the end, turned it around in my die cutting machine, lined it up with the stitching and partially cut the other half. In this way I could create a longer fancy rectangle for my scene.

I used the petite snow stencil over it with some white texture paste. I love that it looks like real snow!

I did the same partial die cutting with the land border die to create snowbanks from white glitter cardstock. When the paste dried I adhered the snowbank and popped up the coloured images with 3D foam squares.

The sentiment I white heat embossed on a red stitched die cut (Framework die set) and used 3D squares to adhere it in place.

The trick in this simple card is the embellishments: I added a ton of shimmer to the presents, hat an scarf. I used a black glaze pen on the eyes of the critters and added glossy accents here and there to emphasize some details.

Boo – Be very afraid!

World Cardmaking Day was a week ago and I did manage to make 2 cards but never had the chance to share them. I was playing with my Hello Bluebird stamps to create this Halloween cutie.

I started with stamping and colouring the images from the Halloween Party and Banner Buddies stamp sets. I used COpic markers to add colour and cut them out with their coordinating dies.

The sentiment I die cut from green glitter cardstock using the Oliver Alpha die set and adhered it on a black banner which I created with the Banner buddies stamp set and Vertical banners die. Under it I white heat embossed another sentiment from the Halloween Party stamp set.

To hang the banner I die cut the bar from black cardstock 2 times,adhered them together and coated it with Versamark ink. Then I poured silver embossing powder on it and heat set it. I repeated the process once more for a smooth look. The background is from an MFT patterned paper set, I just added some grey ink splatters to it.

I die cut grass from grey cardstock using the Pond builder die set and adhered the images in place using 3D foam squares. I hid the naughty squirrel behind the banner and added a few green jewels as if he was dropping them in the cauldron. I am giddy over this little joke!

As a finishing touch I added some white gel pen highlights and used a black glaze pen to make the eyes of the critters shiny. A little glossy accent finished it off.

I will upload this card to the following challenges: Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge (Fall/Autumn) and the Simon Says Stamp IG Challenge (Favourite technique – metallic embellishments).

Hope you enjoyed my card and will pop in again tomorrow for more fun!

See you,

Zsofi
