Newton’s Nook Designs Winter Release – Day 4

Hello Everyone,

We have reached the last day of the Newton’s Nook Designs Winter Release reveals, which is always bitter-sweet. But we saved the best for last: a cute little kitty set called Newton’s Snowman (it also has coordinating dies) and a small but oh-so-pretty sentiment set called Happy New Year.

All new products will be available on 20/11!

CARD 1

I stamped and coloured the Newton’s Snowman stamp on white cardstock using Copic markers. I cut the image out with the coordinating die.

I wanted it to be in the center of attention so I kept the rest of the design simple: I used the Frameworks die set to cut a postage stamp rectangle from lime green cardstock. Then I cut a slightly smaller rectangle from patterned paper (Doodlebug Design) and matted it with white cardstock before adhering to the lime green piece. I popped up the die cut image with 3D foam squares and added the sentiment from the Snowman Roundabout stamp set on a thin black strip.

I chose a kraft card base this time to match the kitties and embellished the image with a clear shimmer pen (scarves), glossy accents (carrot, eyes and buttons of the snowman) and some stickles (caps and snowbanks).

These little details bring this cute image to another level.

CARD 2

To showcase the Happy New Year sentiment set I created a fun slimline card to have enough space for some celebrating kitties. The previously release Newton’s New Year and Newton Celebrates sets are coordinating so well with the new sentiment set!

After stamping, colouring and die cutting the images from the above mentioned sets I was working on the festive background.

I die cut a scalloped slimline rectangle with the Slimline Frames and Portholes die set from Bristol Smooth cardstock. I masked off the scalloped part with Purple Tape (Thermoweb) and applied Speckled Egg, Bundled Sage and Squeezed Lemonade Distress Oxide inks in a light layer. I like to use blending brushes, for me these tools give the smoothest results. Then I used the Bubbly stencil and went back with the same colours just with a heavier hand. To resemble the champagne instead of Squeezed Lemonade I used Scattered Straw this time. After removing the stencil I used water and black and white acrylic paint to add splatters and dried it with my heat tool. I also spritzed the whole panel with glitter spray for a subtle sparkle.

I stamped the Happy New Year sentiment in the middle with black ink and popped up the images on the sides with 3D foam squares.

I added clear shimmer to the champagne and glossy accents to some details and adhered it on a black slimline card base (3,5*8,5 inches).

Newton’s Nook Designs Winter Release – Day 3

Hello Everyone,

We are halfway through the Newton’s Nook Designs Winter Release reveals and we continue the winter theme with another round set: Snowman Roundabout stamp set. It is so cute and could work so well for kids’ crafts as well! I plan to colour these with my son too who is not as crafty as my daughter. All the new products will be available on 20/11.

As all roundabout sets this one also coordinates well with the previously released Circle Frames and Banner Trio dies.

I started with silver heat embossing the snowman stamp on Bristol Smooth cardstock and cut it out with a Circle Frames die. I used my Karin Brush markers for a quick watercolouring: I didn’t add any shading to the snowmen to show you how nice it looks with just a touch of colour!

For the background I chose a purple patterned paper from Doodlebug Designs and used 3D foam tape to pop up the focal panel.

The sentiment I white heat embossed on a purple banner (Banner Trio) and added a very thin strip blue violet cardstock under it before attaching it to the embossed snowmen.

Newton’s Nook Designs Winter Release – Day 2

Hello Everyone,

It is the second day of the Newton’s Nook Designs Winter Release reveals and we continue the winter theme with the fabulous Snowfall Roundabout stamp set. It is so versatile and needs no colouring if you wish but gives space for a ton of techniques! I love it!

It coordinates perfectly with the previously released Circle Frames and Banner Trio dies.

All new products will be available on 20/11!

My card is a clean and simple one this time: I simply white heat embossed the stamp on vellum and cut it with the scalloped circle from the above mentioned die set. It looks gorgeous!

I created a round card base using a circle die from Pink and Main: I die cut the chosen size twice from hot pink cardstock and scored one of them at half an inch from the top. I applied glue on this little flap and adhered it to the other circle. I added a smaller, light pink circle in the middle and added drops of liuid glue behind the sowflakes on the back of the vellum. In this way I could adhere it to the card base and the adhesive is not showing through.

I die cut a flag banner from white cardstock with a Banner Trio die and stamped one of the sentiments in pink (Catherine Pooler ink). I added 3 layers of 3D foam strips behind the banner an adhered it to the middle of the card.

I used tiny clear sequins in the middle of each snowflake, it makes it so festive and shiny! Like a little gem!

Newton’s Nook Designs Winter Release – Day 1

Hello Everyone,

I am so happy to be part of the Newton’s Nook Designs Winter Release reveals! Today we are showcasing the adorable Snowman greetings stamp and die set. All new products will be available on 20/11!

For my card I stamped and coloured the cute little snowman on Copic friendly white cardstock so I could use Copic markers for colouring. I went with cold tones to enhance the winter chill. I cut him out with the coordinating die.

To set a little scene I used the Frames and Flags die set to cut a mint green scalloped rectangle and the rounded small rectangle from a Doodlebug patterned paper. I also cut a white mat in-between and a snowbank from white glitter cardstock using the Land border die. I assembled the layers on a dark brown card base and popped up the snowman with 3D foam squares.

The sentiment I stamped on a small banner cut with the Banner Trio die set. I used a Catherine Pooler ink in matching colour. I added a stitched blue banner under it for more interest.

Instead of little blings I decided to embellish the background with the little snowflakes from the stamp set: I white heat embossed a couple of them randomly.

I added clear shimmer to the accssories and used a black glaze pen on the eyes. The heart, nose, beak and buttons I covered with glossy accents and added a bit of Stickles to the snowy parts to match the glittery look of the snowbank.

25 Days of Christmas Tags – Newton’s Nook Designs

Hello Everyone,

I am so excited to be part of the 10th Annual 25 Days of Christmas Tags event hosted by Tracey McNeely! I love this event, not just because it is jam packed with inspiration but there are amazing Sponsors and prizes to win.

Each day a new brand is in focus, today we are all featuring Newton’s Nook Designs. Here is my tag:

I used the super cute puppy from Christmas puppies, coloured him with Copics and cut him out with the coordinating dies.

Then I die cut the Snow globe shaker frame from white cardstock 3 times, the backing from patterned paper and the bottom from silver metallic cardstock. I used the backing die to cover up the twine which I adhered to the back of the snow globe. In this way there is place for a message and it can work as an ornament too.

The sentiment I die cut from silver sparkle cardstock and adhered it at an angle.

As a finishing touch I covered the present and the scarf with clear shimmer and added glossy accens to the nose and the cany cane. The eyes I made shiny with a black glaze pen. I love how it turned out, I cannot wait to make more!

Make sure to visit Tracey’s blog for more inspiration and I hope you play along!

See you soon with more fun projects!

Slimline Christmas – Newton’s Nook Design

Hello Everyone,

I am here today with a simple slimline Christmas card I created with the latest release of Newton’s Nook Designs.

When I first saw the Christmas Puppies and A Kitten Christmas sets I knew I need to use them together on a card. I chose the kitty and pup with the string of lights, stamped them on Copic friendly cardstock and coloured them with Copic markers. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out.

I created an 8,5*3,5 inches white card base and covered the front with patterned paper from my stash. Then I die cut the Slimline Frames and Windows die from red and cream cardtsock and adhered them to the base.

I popped up the critters vertically using thick 3D foams squares. The sentiment I white heat embossed on a green banner (the die is also from the Slimline Frames and Windows set). I popped it up also with 3D foam squares and embellished it with holly berries.

As a finishing touch I used glossy accents on each light bulb and also on the berries. The eyes I made shiny with my black glaze pen.

I hope you enjoyed this simple slimline card idea and you will share yours in our FB fan group.

See you soon,

Zsofi

Newton’s Nook Designs Holiday Release – Day 4

Hello Everyone,

It is always bittersweet when we reach the final day of the release reveals of Newton’s Nook Designs but I deeply wish you enjoyed the week with us. We have two more stamps to show you today: Holiday Post (which also has coordinating dies) and Christmas Roundabout which matches perfectly the previously released Circle Frames die set.

All new products will be available on 23rd Oct, 2020!

CARD 1

For my first card I stamped the image from Holiday Post Kitten Christmas on white cardstock and coloured them with Arteza coloured pencils. . I used the coordinating dies to cut it out.

To set a winter scene I cut some patterned paper (MFT) down with the rounded rectangle die from Frames and Flags. I also cut a white one and made it a snowbank with a Land border die. I popped up the die cut image on it using 3D foam squares an gave the panel a thin white mat.

I thought that the postage stamp rectangle die from Frameworks would match perfectly the theme so I cut it from green cardstock and adhered it to another piece of patterned paper. A lot of layers, just the way I love it!

The sentiment I white heat embossed on a purple banner (Frames an Flags die set) and adhered it to the top of the focal panel. I embellished it with a couple of enamel hearts from Doodlebug.

I finished it off with glossy accents and some stickles for a sparkling snow effect. I also added clear shimmer to the scarves and hats.

CARD 2

I love the Roundabout stamps and the new Christmas Roundabout is so playful. I black heat embossed it and painted it with Karin Brush markers.

When it was dry I die cut it with a circle die and gave it a slightly bigger green mat and another one from gold metallic cardstock.

For the background I chose a gold foiled patterned paper from Lawn Fawn and stamped a sentiment dierctly on it.

So simple yet still has a lot of shine and festivity.

Newton’s Nook Designs Holiday Release – Day 3

Hello Everyone,

We are over the half of the Holiday Release reveals of Newton’s Nook Designs and I wish you are ready for the cutest little critters ever. Today our team showcases the adorable Christmas Puppies and A Kitten Christmas stamp/die sets. Perfect individually but also combined together!

All new products will be available on 23rd Oct, 2020!

CARD 1

For my first card I stamped the images from A Kitten Christmas on white cardstock and coloured them with Copic markers. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out.

Then I die cut the Paw print shaker pieces from white cardstock and layered them on top of each other. I also cut some pine and a red bow using the Pines and Holly die set.

For the background I chose a pretty patterned paper from Doodlebug Designs and cut it down with the scalloped rectangle from Frames and Flags. I matted it with a slightly larger dark green piece and assembled the card. The sentiment I simply heat embossed in white on the same green cardstock and cut it down with my paper trimmer.

As a finishing touch I added clear shimmer to the santa hat and glossy accents to the candy canes.

CARD 2

As always I started with stamping and colouring the cute puppy from Christmas puppies and cut it out with the coordinating die. I also had a bone and a santa hat which I covered with Marvy Snow marker and heat it up with my heat tool. It puffs up and looks so fluffy!

I wanted a festive background for my little pup so I used the Tiny Trees stencil with Green Glitz Glitter Gel from Gina K Designs and Thermoweb. I applied it directly on a white top folding card base. Looks gorgeous and so glittery! I guess it is my favourite stencil this season!

I popped up the pup with 3D foam squares on a white strip and matted it with dark red cardstock. I stamped the sentiment in green directly above it and when the trees were dry, I mounted it all with a thin 3D foam tape from Simon Says Stamp. It is much thinner than the 3M tape but still gives dimension. I love it!

I finished it off with glossy accents on the nose and holy berries and made the eyes shiny with a black glaze pen.

Newton’s Nook Designs Holiday Release – Day 2

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is 121806455_1281154408901631_3368528928141305936_n.png

Hello Everyone,

It is Day 2 of Newton’s Nook Designs’ Holiday release reveals. Today we feature the Dear Santa and the Nutcrackers stamp/die sets which also has a fun word die included!

All new products will be available on 23rd Oct, 2020!

CARD 1

For my first card I stamped the images from Dear Santa on white cardstock and coloured them with Copic markers. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out.

I also die cut a tag using the Fancy edges tag die set and white cardstock. The snow banks I cut with a Land border die and added a bit of shading to it with Copic markers. The reinforcer I cut from dark red cardstock and added red twine after popping up Santa with 3D foam squares.

I wanted to use the new Reindeer stencil as I felt it is the perfect match with Santa so I applied Gathered Twigs Distress Oxide ink over it on a kraft card base. I used a blending brush for a subtle result.

The sentiment I white heat embossed on a special brown shimmer cardstock for a festive feel and cut it down to a very narrow strip. After assembling the card I could not resist adding a bit of stickles to Santa’s uniform and a bit of glossy accents to his boots and belt.

CARD 2

The Nutcrackers is one of my favourite sets in this release, maybe because it reminds me of my childhood. I was 6 years old when I saw the ballet and it enchanted me. I imagined a classic look for my little wooden creatures so I stamped and coloured them with red, green any yellow Copic markers. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out.

I die cut the rounded rectangle from Frames and Flags from a satin pearl cardstock. I also cut the fun word die included in the Nutcrackers coordinating die set from green glitter cardstock and arranged them on the top and the bottom of the pearl panel. I popped up the two nutcrackers in between using 3D foam squares.

I white heat embossed another sentiment on brown cardstock and used a small circle die to cut it out.

For the background I chose a classic brown checked patterned paper, I really feel it makes the images stand out. And again, perfect for our guys too. I added clear shimmer and glossy accents to some details on the clothes and made the eyes shiny with a black glaze pen.

Newton’s Nook Designs Holiday Release – Day 1

Hello Everyone,

I am super excited to share with you a whole week of Holiday fun as we start the reveals of Newton’s Nook Designs’ Holiday release! Today we feature the Destination Christmas and Christmas Camper stamp/die sets and 2 fantastic new stencils!

All new products will be available on 23rd Oct, 2020!

CARD 1

For my first card I stamped the images from Destination Christmas on Bristol Smooth cardstock and painted the images with Altenew watercolours. I almost never use watercolours but I just zoned out and painted without thinking. When they were dry I used the coordinting dies to cut them out.

I used the rounded square from Frames squares die set to cut a panel from watercolour cardstock and painted a night sky with blue watercolours. I dried it with my heat tool and splattered it with white acrylic paint and some liquid pixie dust.

Meanwhile it was drying I used the new Tiny trees stencil on a white card base with white texture paste to get a tone-on-tone background.

When the cardbase was ready I popped up the cars with 3D foam squares on the focal panel and white heat embossed a sentiment on a thin strip of vellum which I wrapped around the top. I matted it with red cardstock and adhered it to the card base with thin 3D foam tape. I finished it off with red twine. Isn’t it perfect for guys?

CARD 2

For my second card I used the Evergreens stencil on a white card base with Bundled Sage Distress Oxide ink to create the forest background. Then with a small blending brush I applied Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide for the sky.

Then I stamped and black heat embossed the images from Christmas Campers on Bristol Smooth cardstock and coloured them with Karin Bruhmarkers. I love these markers as they have a lot of pigment and just a drop of colour is enough to have bright results. I used a simple waterbrush to distribute the colours and cut everything out with their coordinating dies.

Using the Land border dies I die cut a snow bank from white glitter cardstock (Simon Says Stamp) and assembled the scene. I used 3D foam squares for the images to create dimension.

For the sentiment I die cut the Happy Holiday from Holiday Greetings 4 times from red cardstock and layered them on top of each other. I love that it looks like chipboard. I stamped and extra sentiment under it in black and my card was all finished. Perfect card for guys too, don’t you think?
