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.

Halloween Bunny

Hello Everyone,

I am here with a clean and simple Halloween card as part of the Sneak Peeks of the super fun September release at Pink and Main.

I started with stamping the witch-bunny from the Less tricks set on alcohol ink friendly cardstock and coloured it with my Copic markers. I used the coordinating die to cut it out! I love how it rounds the edges, so pretty!

Then I created a simple ink blended sky using Distress Oxide inks: Wilted Violet, Blueprint Sketch, Faded Jeans and a bit of Black Soot. I added white pain splatters and dried it with a heat tool. Then I also added some shimmer mist and when it was dried I went back with some black soot splatters too. it would have been pretty without it too, but I enjoy building up texture.

I made sure it was all dry before I heat embossed the sentiment with white embossing powders. Then I stamped a bunch of stars from the same set with Versamark ink and used WOW Metallic Silver sparkle embossing powder on them.

I added thin trips of Silver Glitter cardstock on the edges of my panel and matted it with black cardstock before adhering it to a top folding white notecard. Then I popped up the bunny with 3D foam squares and embellished it with glossy accents on the stars of its gown and on the mask. Isn’t it adorable?

I hope you enjoyed today’s sneak peek and will check back later for more. All new products will be available on 20/09!

See you soon,

I created a clean and simple card for today’s theme using the Cardinal seasons stamp set. On a piece of white cardstock I stamped the tree branch with Iced Tea ink and once more with Coffee Bean ink to make it slightly darker in some places. I used a stamp positioner and paid attention not to ink up the stamp perfectly to ensure some lighter and darker spots.

I also stamped the birdhouse the same way with the same inks. Then I filled the branch with the pine needles using Evergreen Hybrid ink.

The sentiment I heat embossed with gold embossing powder and matted the design with red cardstock.

For the background I chose a striped patterned paper from the Christmas Cottage paper pad. As embellishment I used Nuvo drops in red for the heart and gold to scatter around.

If you follow me you know how much I love creating scenes and play with cute stamps. I really enjoyed colouring the characters from the Halloween Hijinks, I stamped them on Bristol Smooth cardstock and coloured them with Arteza Real Brush markers. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out.

On another piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock I masked off a circle (By the light of the moon die) and I sponged Plum Crazy and Dark wash jeans Hybrid inks and added a little Raven on the edges.

After removing the mask, I went back on the circle with Snowy white ink to soften the edges of the moon.

I die cut grass (In the grass die) and a tree border (Up a tree die) from black cardstock. On the grass I added a bit of Snowy white ink for a spooky look.

I also die cut clouds from vellum (In a cloudy sky) and some stars (By the light of the moon) from silver glitter cardstock.

After assembling the night scene, I stamped the sentiment across the moon with Raven Hybrid ink. I used a black glaze pen on the eyes and pumpkins, and a bit of gold gel pen on the horn of the unicorn.

Newton’s Nook Designs August Release – Day 4

Hello Everyone,

We have reached the final day of the sneak peeks at the fa-boo-lous August release at Newton’s Nook Designs. Are you excited? I hope you liked the last three days and are ready for getting in spooky mood. Today we are showcasing 2 Halloween stamps with their coordinating dies and fun new stencil. All of these will be available tomorrow, 23/08!

CARD #1

For my first card I stamped and coloured the adorable dogs from Happy Howl-oween with Copic markers and cut them out with the coordinating dies. I stamped a bunch of extra candies for building a cute garden scene.

The next step was to create the night sky background. I used the Clouds stencil on Bristol Smooth cardstock and Wilted Violet Distress ink. When it was done, I die cut the panel with my favourite postage frame die from Frameworks.

I also die cut a Fence from woodgrain cardstock and grass with a Land border die from black cardstock. I applied a bit of white pigment ink on the grassy border for a spooky look.

After adhering the background a black cardbase and attaching the fence and grass, I placed the dogs temporarily where they would be. I felt I wanted the sky to be more Halloween-y so I pulled out the Flying Bats stencil and used mini blending brush to add a couple of bats around the dogs with Black Soot Distress ink.

I partial die cut some speech bubbles from white cardstock to match the sentiments and popped them and the dogs up with 3D foam squares. I scattered the candies in the grass all around.

As a finishing touch I added a bit of clear shimmer to the wizard costume and the candies and emphasized some details with glossy accents and a black glaze pen.

CARD #2

For my second card I coloured the Witchy Newton set with Copic markers and cut it out with its coordinating die. I cut a lime green and a slightly wider purple piece of cardstock, adhered them together and tore a piece of vellum which was tiny taller so I could wrap it around the coloured cardstock piece. I added strong tape on the back of the panel to secure the vellum.

I stamped the sentiment with black STAZ-ON ink and adhered the cut out image under it.

I embellished the vellum with tiny silver stars and added some clear shimmer to the boot and glossy accents on some of the details.

The background for the focal panel I created on a black scalloped rectangle (Frames and flags die set). I masked off the stitching parts with purple tape and applied Thermoweb Pearl metallix deco foil gel though the new Ghost stencil. I love the pearlescent shine after drying!

I mounted the assembled panel on a dark grey card base to match the spooky feel.
