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 3

Hello Everyone,

We are halfway through the Holiday Release reveals at Newton’s Nook Designs. We are introducing you 2 fantastic stamp sets today: Holiday Fringe and Main Street Christmas (which has coordinating dies too with some words included!)

CARD 1

I stamped the Holiday Fringe stamp on kraft cardstock with Versamark ink and heat embossed it with Gold embossing powder.

I used my Prismacolour pencils to add colour, it is so relaxing and pure joy!

When I was done, I trimmed it down with my paper trimmer to have a little frame and matted it with a white scalloped square from the Frames Squared die set.

I popped it up on a red 4,25×4,25 inch card base with 3D foam squares and added some clear shimmer to the ribbons and baubles.

I also added glossy accents to the Merry sentiment,the light string, berries and candy cane. I love the texture and dimension!

CARD 2

For my second card I stamped the Main Street Christmas stamp set on white cardstock and coloured it with Copic markers.

I used rainbow colours 🙂

I die cut it with its coordinating die and added some white Flower Soft to the roofs with liquid glue.

For the background I die cut a scalloped stitched rectangle from Frames and Flags and masked off the scallop part with Purple Tape. I sponged blue distress oxide inks and added some water sprinkles. I also splattered the background with white acrylic paint.

I die cut the word joyful from white glitter cardstock and stamped the santa sleigh in black next to it. I adhered the panel to a kraft note card and popped up the houses with 3D foam squares.

CARD 3

I really wanted to make a more pastel version of the Main Street Christmas, so I white heat embossed it on SSS Fog cardstock. I used Tombow markers to add some grey, pink and blue to the houses and used a white pencil to add white details.

When it was ready I created a mask with the coordinating die and simple printer paper. I also masked off a frame with Purple tape and sponged a light layer of Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink. I tried to get it lighter towards the houses.

I also used the Petite Snow stencil and White Glitz Glitter gel from Thermoweb/Gina K designs to add a layer of snow.

I white heat embossed a sentiment on vivid pink cardstock and die cut it with a skinny banner die (Lawn Fawn).

When the snowflakes were dry I popped up the sentiment banner with 3D foam squares and adhered it all to a white card base.

Newton’s Nook Designs Holiday Release – Day 1

Hello Everyone,

I am super excited to switch to Winter this week here on my blog as we start the Newton’s Nook Designs Holiday Release reveals! It is a gorgeous, jam packed release all about the upcoming holidays. Lets dive in! Today our team showcases new stencils and 2 fantastic stamp/die sets: Christmas Trimmings and Holiday Lights. All new products will be available on 18/10!

CARD 1

If you follow me you know how much I adore stencils! NND has the most unique ones in my opinion. The Light Strings stencil has 2 pieces for easy layering.

I started with the strings layer on white cardstock adding Versamark ink directly from the ink pad. I poured silver sparkle embossing powder on top and heat set it with a heat gun.

Then I added Distress Inks in rainbow colours through the Lights layer using a mini dauber and before removing the stencil I covered them all with Cosmic Shimmer Frosty Sparkle paste (Creative Expressions).

Until it was drying I die cut a banner from silver metallic cardstock and a smaller one from peacock cardstock using the Frames and Flags die set. On the silver one I heat embossed a sentiment from the Sentiments of the Season stamp set using WOW White Sparkling Snow embossing glitter.

When the paste was dry I trimmed the paneldown a little and adhered it to a grey card base. I popped upthe layered sentiment with 3D foam squares. Look at the sparkle, so beautiful!

CARD 2

On my next card I used the Ornaments stencil on Audrey Blue cardstock (Simon Says Stamp) with Gina K Designs Glitz Glitter Gel (Turquoise Sea).

I applied it with a stencil pal from Thermoweb – it is a fabulous tool and makes spreading the pastes evenly and so fast!

Until it was drying I stamped and coloured the images from the Christmas Trimmings stamp set. I used Copic markers and cut them out with the coordinating dies.

I die cut a stitched Oval (Simon Says Stamp) from Sea glass cardstock and adhered the images. I added some shading under them with a grey Copic marker and a colourless blender.

I also die cut two white circles using the Frames Squared die set and heat embossed some of the sentiments from the stamp set with Antique Gold embossing powder from Simon Says Stamp.

After assembling the card, I added some shimmer to the shoes, ribbon, cap and the baubles with a clear shimmer pen and emphasized some details with glossy accents.

CARD 3

I was so happy to see the face of the girl finally that I had to use that image on another card. I coloured a bunch of presents and baubles too and adhered them all on a strip of Audrey blue cardstock.

I stamped the sentiments around her with Audrey Blue ink and once more with Versamark so I could heat emboss it with clear embossing powder. This way the colour got darker and shiny.

I added some scalloped edges from white cardstock (Sky border die set) and popped it up on a pretty patterned paper from Doodlebug Designs using 3D foam tape.

A bit of clear shimmer and glossy accents were the only embellishments used on this card.

CARD 4

My last card for today is also a very festive one with a lot of shimmer.

I stamped the Holiday Lights images on Bristol Smooth cardstock with Versamark ink and heat embossed with WOW Metallic Gold Sparkle Embossing glitter.

I used some Tombow markers to add colour and spread them out with a clear shimmer pen. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out.

I die cut the postage stamp die from Frameworks from heavy weight white cardstock, sprinkled it with gold paint (Finetec) and added 2 strings of gold sparkle twine (Lawn Fawn). I secured them on the back of the panel.

I stamped the sentiment in green in between the 2 strings and popped up the lights with 3D foam squares. I adhered the panel down to a kraft card base.

I love the shimmer and shine on the lights. Simple design but still so unique!

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,

Fall leaves – Newton’s Nook Designs

Hello Everyone,

This is my second post today as it is my turn on the Newton’s Nook Designs blog. I love Fall and the nature around us is the best inspiration with all the beautiful colours.

I have recently discovered the Shades of Autumn stamp set and used a bunch of Distress inks to stamp them on cream cardstock in random order. I chose Autumn colours: Mustard Seed, Dried Marigold, Bundled Sage, Gathered Twigs and Aged Mahogany.

The stamp is created in a way that it adds a ton of texture, how beautiful and unique!

Then I used the postage stamp die from Frameworks to cut it down.

I stamped the sentiment in Versamark ink on top of the leaves and poured WOW Metallic Gold Sparkle embossing glitter on top and heat set it. I wanted it to stand out more, so i shifted the cardstock bit an stamped the sentiment again with brown ink to create a shadow.

I love the gold sparkle so much that I decided to add some dots to the leaves too. I used an embossing pen to add the dots and the same embossing powder to give them the glittery gold sparkle.

I finished the card with adhering the panel to a top folding kraft card base and tied brown twine around it on the top.

I hope you got inspired by my card and will pop in for something cute tomorrow!

See you,

Zsofi

Happy Haunting – Pink and Main

Hello Everyone,

Halloween is getting closer and I am still not finished with sharing Halloween inspiration. Today’s spooky card is an almost one layer one, created with the Less Tricks stamp set from Pink and Main.

I started with masking 3/4 inc stripes on a white top folding card base. I used Wilted Violet and Milled Lavender Distress inks to create colourful stripes.

I stamped and coloured the cute critters from the Less Tricks stamp set and added colour with my Copic markers. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out.

After making sure that the distress stripes are dry, I white heat embossed some of the Halloween sentiments from the Fall sentiments stamp set.

I adhered the die cut critters and used the little stars from the Less Tricks stamp set as embellishments around them. I stamped them with Milled Lavender Distress ink.

A bit of clear shimmer and glossy accents finished this simple but cute card.

I hope you enjoyed today’s inspiration and you will come back again soon for more!

See you,

Zsofi

Trick or treat? – Pink and Main

Hello Everyone,

I am here again with a cute treat card for Halloween. I used my favourite design which I love for smaller images: tag on a card. All goodies are from Pink and Main.

I started with stamping the images several times from the Trick or treat stamp set using Versafine Onyx black ink and used clear embossing powder to heat set it. I love the raised edges when I colour with water based markers, as it helps staying within the lines. I used Arteza Brush markers to add such vibrant colours and then I die cut everything with the coordinating dies.

I also white heat embossed the sentiment on black cardstock and also die cut it. I love when sentiments have coordinating dies!

For the tag I chose the Arch tag die set and cut a purple and a black one and layered them on top of each other. Arranged the images and added some candy cane twine.

This time the card base is black and I added a patterned paper from the Not to spooky paper pad which I cut down to size with a Stitched Rectangle 2 die.

A bit of glossy accent on the lollipop finished this cute card.

Hope you enjoyed today’s inspiration and you will pop in again soon for more. Till next time, happy crafting!
